1.0 out of 5 stars The Book Geek, 11 Aug. 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Jacob (Nightwalkers) (Mass Market Paperback)
I just cannot take it any longer! Maybe it was unfair that I gave the ending 1 star but I wouldn't know because I never made it there. This book just bugged me so much in every way. I love the paranormal romance genre, that and dystopias are what get me going book-wise; so I was thinking this would be another to add to the list: Fever Series, Black Dagger Brotherhood, Lords Of The Underworld, etc, etc. I even ignored the terrible Mills & Boon style cover and pretended it didn't offend my eyes because some great books have effin' lousy covers.

Warning bells should probably have started ringing about the time I realised the (so-called) heroine was named none other than Bella, and the (so-called) dark and sexy Jacob (yes, that's right... now where's Edward?) had a bloody ponytail - I mean, what? You can count on one hand how many men can get away with that look. Like Josh Holloway in Lost *sigh* And then, of course, the first time they meet he's swooping in to save her. Oh damn that cliche! I hate damsels in distress, especially seeing as her 'distress' was falling out of a window head first - is this woman a complete idiot?

The characters were less than engaging, to put it mildly. I found myself not giving a damn whether they lived, died or slept together. But, yes, I was anxiously anticipating that last part, surely the worst book can be pulled up to 2 stars with some decent smut. However, just like a Mills and Boon novel, she was your typical virginal (and seriously annoying) heroine and he was the big bad demon trying to resist temptation because of her sweet, innocent, pure... give it a rest, I was sick of hearing how Bella was the next Virgin Mary - get it on, already! Jacob's endless patronisation of her was aggravating as well, why did he have to call her "little flower" every time they spoke, it wasn't cute it was just cringy.

If you haven't worked it out yet... I didn't like this book. Will not bother with the rest of the series. Thank you.
