This book was given to me by the author in exchange for an honest review--thanks so much, Rae!
As I mentioned in my previous review, I asked for far too many books and have been trying to catch up. I've had a really bad problem with book getting lately. But on to the actual review.
I like vampires. I like romance. I like dark supernatural elements. But somehow, this book just didn't work for me--the plot was muddled, and I really felt like the two main characters, Marcus and Ellie, just met each other and fell in love. It wasn't exactly bad, but it wasn't spectacular, either. I liked the spin that Hachton put on the vampire legend--the claiming instead of the bloodletting, trying to make it more romantic, but it just wasn't for me. It felt like a darker Twilight. I didn't really like any of the characters, they all felt disposable to me, and it just put me off the story. Next on deck: The Shadow Prince by Stacey O'Neal!
