(I received a free copy of this book in exchange for a review).
(This review may contain spoilers).
I found the cover of this book and the blurb to be really intriguing. I was entertained by this book as I read it, but I did waver about how many stars to give it as I reached the end.
I did feel that the idea behind this book was quite an intriguing one. I liked Jarrod and Eden as characters… but I wasn’t that keen on them together as a possible. I don’t know if it was just that I couldn’t get behind them as a couple, or that I wasn’t really sure why Eden was attracted to Jarrod… (It’s the whole vampire-falls-in-love-with-human thing again…)
What I did find interesting were the biblical aspects to this book and how the thirty pieces of silver were utilised, but for most of the book, I had no idea why the antagonist (I didn’t even realise he was the antagonist for over half of the book) was even searching for the silver… or how the other characters fit into the storyline.
I did feel that a lot of the book dragged somewhat. There wasn’t as much action as I was expecting and I didn’t really get a true explanation about everything that was going on. I was intrigued about the different characters, particularly those connected to Eden, but I didn’t really see enough of them. I felt the book was far more a romance than anything else.
I did feel the book was a bit abrupt towards the end. The ending wasn’t really very satisfactory. The bits from the past were intriguing, but I was really confused by what was going on there and how everything fit together.
I’m not sure I’ll read the next book in this series, if there is one. I had some questions answered by the end, but I felt that there was still a lot of the story that wasn’t really made clear. I think there was a lot of potential here, but although I found it easy to read (despite slightly messed-up paragraphs), there were things I would have liked to see explored that weren’t. Most of the action happened at the end and I struggled to read the parts that were just romance.
