Author Summary (Amazon):
Seventeen-year-old Alice Bonham's life feels out of control after she meets Jack. With his fondness for pink Chuck Taylors and New Wave hits aside, Jack's unlike anyone she's ever met.
Then she meets his brother, Peter. His eyes pierce through her, and she can barely breathe when he's around. Even though he can't stand the sight of her, she's drawn to him.
But falling for two very different guys isn't even the worst of her problems. Jack and Peter are vampires, and Alice finds herself caught between love and her own blood...
-The characters are really what make you want to read this story. I loved them all.
-The plot centers around the triangle of Peter, Jack & Alice. The emotions where well described and at times heart breaking to read.
-The vampire lore was realistic. I know that sounds silly, but basically I mean if vampires were real I kind of imagine they would be something like they are in this story.
-I love the character of Alice, she was very real and believable.
-Loved this beginning middle and end.
-The author gets props for all of her awesome pop culture references. A lot of books don't have those, keeping things generic. I'm glad specific songs and clothing was described it gave a clear picture in my mind.
-It's not the most well written novel I've ever read. But I believe that would improve over time as this is a debut novel.
Overall I give this a 4 out of 5, and I would highly recommend to any Twilight fan.
