This book was good. For teenagers, but the story was pretty solid. But I'm the kinda person who, wants I start something I want to finish it. And I like a good story. ( )

This was perfect. I've seen the movie and I have to say the book is a thousand times better. I like how Ethan is the stronger of the two most of the times and how they love each other so much. Also I like how the plot goes. In the movie it's so much different and especially the ending sucks in the movie. I can't wait to read the next instalments in the series. ( )

Amazon is pushing this book hard, I think because they're looking for another Twilight franchise to boost their sales into 2010. This book was pretty good though it's a little silly starting off as the authors try to set up too many plot details what will be important later on. Basically, the first 50 pages just have Ethan encountering something strange and unexplainable every three seconds so that the authors could set up all the payoffs they were going to need for the next 500 pages. The writing improves when the authors hit their stride (maybe 50-100 pages in). I can see where they've studied the elements that made Twilight a success and sought to include them (secret supernatural society with X-Men style powers a la the Twilight vampires; star-crossed love affair between a paragon of a young man and an unusual girl who doesn't quite fit in; strange but accepting supernatural family [no supernatural sparkly baseball, though, sadly:]; etc.).

The writing is definitely light years ahead of what you will find in Twilight, though, and I was relieved that there were no mental monologues stretching on, page after page, about how much someone looked like a Greek god. On the negative side, there was way too much frivolous Capitalization of Absolutely Everything, which drove me Nuts.

I feel like there were some plot holes but those items may have been set up for an inevitable sequel. It's hard to tell with some of them whether they were deliberate or were mistakes.

This all sounds negative, but I enjoyed the book. I would recommend it to any of my friends who enjoy YA or paranormal romance for younger readers (e.g., Twilight and co.).

On a purely superficial note, the production values on the book itself are extremely high. The jacket especially is beautiful with a screen of the author photo in silver on black on the back flap. I could have done without the ampersand on C1, though, ugh. . . . ( )

Good book. I was not expecting it to be from the guy's perspective. That was really surprising. I am looking forward to reading the others. ( )

The intensity of Ethan and Lena's need to be together is palpable, the detailed descriptions create a vivid, authentic world, and the allure of this story is the power of love. The satisfying conclusion is sure to lead directly into a sequel. Give this to fans of Stephenie Meyer's "Twilight" (Little, Brown, 2005) or HBO's "True Blood" series and they will devour all 600-plus pages of this teen Gothic romance.
 
The 600-plus pages could have been cut to make a tighter, better story. Despite the bulk, there’s plenty teens will like: romance, magic, hauntings, and the promise of more to come.
