Victor Valentine was your run of the mill vampire; brooding, mysterious, holy-hotness. Unfortunately, his character suffered from underdevelopment. He could’ve been so much more but I found him aloof and cold. I always look for emotions from characters and Victor was as frigid as an ice box even though he was the equivalent of a humanitarian for his kind.
Dawn didn’t fare well either. She was supposed to be kick ass but she withered under the glare of the insipid token mean girl. I don’t get it. She dealt with the Lord vampire himself; the scariest, oldest vampire there was and yet she could hardly stand up for herself when it comes to the school’s queen bee.
And have I mentioned I have a general distaste for love triangle? Well, this one has it. Although it was less taxing as opposed to some of the ones I’ve read from the past, I think it was the primary reason why I didn’t love this book as much as I would’ve.

I’d like to thank Angel for stopping by on the blog today. Check out the book trailer for Wraith and please don’t miss out on this wonderful book!
It started like a normal YA romance; girl meets boy, girl gets annoyed by too-forward boy but couldn’t stop being all, omg-he’s-so-adorbs! In a span of a week, these two creatures found themselves surrounded by floating hearts, y’all. And then, the unsuspecting plot twist came and shot every floating hearts over their heads. How rude.
If you can get past the mild cheddah in the beginning, you’ll end up wondering why this book never made it to your Kindle earlier. This turned out to be one of those, omg! Is that the time? How have I read this book in a little less than three hours?! And something else…how did the author manage to make this insta-love romance endearing and not at all annoying?
My eyes are burning and I’m fighting off the urge to tape my lids open.
I should’ve downloaded the second part of this series right away because, heck, I didn’t get much sleeping done after reading Slammed anyway. It was addictive and had the annoying ability to make you think long after you’re done reading. And if that’s not what will keep you awake, it’ll be the heavy pressure on your chest that will not dissipate as fast as you want it to.
The beginning was a lot of telling but as the story progressed, I found myself ignoring it – distracted by the fantastic plotline, beautiful poetry, humorous scenarios and dialogues and lovely, well fleshed out characters. And dear God. Did this book make me cry. A lot.
VERDICT: Two words: WILL COOPER. Gah. Box of tissues required.
