Too Absurd… And Thankfully Too Short. 1/2 star
While the price of this exceedingly short and very disappointing novella might entice you into downloading it… DON’T! I read it in less than an hour and with each minute that elapsed, each paged turned I kept hoping for something, anything intriguing to occur.
From the opening paragraphs in chapter one, the book needed some serious editing. Typos like her for he and other pronoun switches were unbelievable. Scenes described in one paragraph were contradicted later on. For instance the room, in Sara’s apartment, was described initially as being empty. Yet two paragraphs later, the same room no longer was barren but had a couch that she laid on, a glass coffee table, a TV in the corner and several unpacked boxes. The author then concluded that the room was sparsely furnished… You don’t say!
The alley scene dialogue between Gedeon and Pryse was so passive and boring that it failed to get my adrenaline pumping. Gedeon, being a 450 year old vampire / healer, had the partial recipe for a concoction to convert vamps to day walkers. This part reminded me of Wesley Snipes’ ‘Blade’ trilogy movies. While Blade’s story lines were sci-fi plausible, this one was inane. Let’s consider this, you are a healer with a recipe that allows vamps to become daywalkers and in the 450 yrs of your existence you have not perfected it. What have you been doing with your eternity Gedeon? Obviously lollygagging.
In Kerrelyn Sparks’ novels, when Connor drinks Roman Draganesti of RomanTech daywalking elixir, it bestowed upon Connor the ability to age several years, in addition to being able to walk in the sunlight and kill their rival Russian bad vampire sect in Brooklyn. Now that’s a positive vampiric role model, not only did Roman create synthetic blood so vampires would no longer drain or force unwilling humans to part with their blood but he perfected his daywalking elixir.
This novella poorly blended plots from the Blade series and the Sparks novels and did an even worse job on the characters. Please don’t bother wasting your time to download and read this trash even if it’s free. I/ we should be paid for undergoing the torture of read this NO’novel’. Argh!

Hmmm I actually enjoyed this
I was a little hesitant about downloading this book because of the negative reviews. The story kept me reading. It is short, but its supposed to be. I enjoyed the writers writing style. It was very simple but enough to give u an idea of what was occurring. It kept me reading and I dont understand why the rating is so low. Also, i’d like to add that I usually am not into “paranormal” kinds of books, as soon as a vampire was introduced in this story, i almost deleted it but for some reason, I kept reading and I’m glad I did. Give it a try.

Not worth a read – Forgettable, forced and boring.
By A Bookaholic
This was an extremely short story, and it seemed as though the author felt she had to speed up the action and the course of the relationship between the two main characters so that she could get them to have sex as soon as possible. Too bad the sex scenes were so boring – if half the pages wasted on the sex scenes had been used to develop the characters in a way that would make their relationship even vaguely believable to the reader, then the sex scenes would have had more heat and the story might have held my interest.
I read it only two days ago, and I can barely remember what it was about. I actually speed-read (and sometimes just skipped) through much of the book, even though it was so short, as it did nothing to draw me into the lives of the characters. I just didn’t care about them at all. It was not offensive, just rather too “high school creative writing class.” And a C-, at that.
