Infinite Days--Freatured Review

Infinite Days (Vampire Queen)
Lenah used to be a vampire. Rhode who has loved her for many years, gave her wish to make her human. With this ritual and with intent, she became human.


She is 16 year old girl who has finally awakened from a long sleep. She is at a boarding school called Wickham. Her best friend is Tony , who happens to be an artist. She have lived for many hundreds of years and is afraid of her coven coming after her.

She has been in love with two men : Rhode and Vicken for different reasons.

This is a different vamp book , and like that she is smart and different from other girls. I don't why she is attracted to the hottest guy on campus. I understand that they at boarding school ( pet peeve) and we are introduced to Justin's parents before they make out.

I understand that she has never done it as a human but did it as vamp. She has been taken back to England and turned back into vamp by Vicken . She is back with the coven and appears stronger and still has her soul. She is still dreaming about Rhode. Interesting what Vicken wants to be human too and still has that vampire bond with her.

It seems that all the men/boys are all in love with Lenah. I get that she is the main character but to have Justin, Tony, Vicken, and Rhode to all be in love with her was a bit much.

I found her transformation very glossed over and that she is able to have special abilities and still retained her soul from being human.

Justin her human boyfriend was okay but I was more interested in the past loves of Rhode and Vicken.

I did like the cliffhanger on this book and will most likely read the next book.

Book Review = 3/C

Book Synopsis

Lenah Beaudonte is the new girl at a fancy Boarding School. Little things like fitting in with her classmates really come second after you've spent the last 500 years as a vampire, killing at random, terrorizing people and munching on babies. But Lenah has been given the change of a lifetime....can she make and fit her way back into humanity.... or will the moment come when she is overwhelmed by her weakness or overwhelmed by the coven she left behind.......

Review

Fall into the world of dark romance, ruthless vampires, sacrificial love and oh yeah high school.........

Lenah a once powerful and feared vampire queen, has awoken to her new human life with the help of Rhode the vampire who made her in the 15th century when she was a young teenager. Having traded his life for hers Lenah has been given the chance to reclaim all the wonderful things she lost in her mortal death. During her reign as queen she was known for her ruthless murders, her vicious contempt for human life and her lust for another’s pain. Basically Lenah was pure evil and had no sympathy, no compassion and no traces of humanity. Regaining her humanity is awkward to say the least, while she has lost all of her vampire curse and most of her vampy powers she still retains the sight and the whole ESP next to me thing. Now enrolled at a private school, she must pass for a normal 16 year old girl, blending in the current modern day culture. But Lenah is watching the clock as well, watching the hours tick by to the day her coven will discover the secret and begin the hunt to track her down.

I really enjoyed this story, while it had its far share of sappy almost unrealistic teen romance centered around its young characters, Lenah and all the other vampires in the story were centuries old. The mix of ages gave the book an older appeal while still staying true to the YA market. I though Maizel’s writing was done well and gave us a unique character in Lenah- actually two characters, due to one was evil Lenah and one was good Lenah. I of course liked good Lenah, its not easy to accept a character who kills children, but she certainly redeems herself by the end. Told almost entirely through Lenah’s pov- we get the depth of her past through flashbacks, some terrible and murderous and some actually just sad…It was defiantly easy to see why Lenah was so miserable, who would want to live as a murderer, with the only desires for despair? The other thing surprising in this novel was the romance, not only do we get the potential hot guy verses the fun friend, we get the hot vampire verses my soul mate vampire and in each world the opposite lover wins. While I never really connected to her and Justin (nor were her and Tony ever going anywhere) I did realize the significance of the relationship. For me I felt the strongest bond was between her and Rhode, as it went through all facets of a relationship with the ultimate sacrifice in the end. Speaking of endings…this one has a cliffhanger sure to make your jaw drop. I cant wait to see what happens……..

Rating

Infinite Days while remaining free of graphic sexuality, doesn't shy away from teens engaging in sex, sexual encounters, romance, violence, blood lust, murder, mild language, themes such as spells, magic, and many
elements of the Wicca religion. Ive read some blogs out there comparing this to Twilight romance, and I would suggest this is far from Twilight- the sensuality is heightened and the overall messages are completely different. Recommended to mature teens- 16 and up.

3/4- YA Vampires

Infinite Days (Vampire Queen #1) by Rebecca Maizel

Lenah Beaudonte is, in many ways, your average teen: the new girl at Wickham Boarding School, she struggles to fit in enough to survive and stand out enough to catch the eye of the golden-boy lacrosse captain. But Lenah also just happens to be a recovering five-hundred-year-old vampire queen. After centuries of terrorizing Europe, Lenah is able to realize the dream all vampires have -- to be human again. After performing a dangerous ritual to restore her humanity, Lenah entered a century-long hibernation, leaving behind the wicked coven she ruled over and the eternal love who has helped grant her deep-seated wish.

Until, that is, Lenah draws her first natural breath in centuries at Wickham and rediscovers a human life that bears little resemblance to the one she had known. As if suddenly becoming a teenager weren’t stressful enough, each passing hour brings Lenah closer to the moment when her abandoned coven will open the crypt where she should be sleeping and find her gone. As her borrowed days slip by, Lenah resolves to live her newfound life as fully as she can. But, to do so, she must answer ominous questions: Can an ex-vampire survive in an alien time and place? What can Lenah do to protect her new friends from the bloodthirsty menace about to descend upon them? And how is she ever going to pass her biology midterm?

When sixteen-year-old Tessa Gray crosses the ocean to find her brother, her destination is England, the time is the reign of Queen Victoria, and something terrifying is waiting for her in London's Downworld, where vampires, warlocks and other supernatural folk stalk the gaslit streets. Only the Shadowhunters, warriors dedicated to ridding the world of demons, keep order amidst the chaos.

Kidnapped by the mysterious Dark Sisters, members of a secret organization called The Pandemonium Club, Tessa soon learns that she herself is a Downworlder with a rare ability: the power to transform, at will, into another person. What's more, the Magister, the shadowy figure who runs the Club, will stop at nothing to claim Tessa's power for his own.

Friendless and hunted, Tessa takes refuge with the Shadowhunters of the London Institute, who swear to find her brother if she will use her power to help them. She soon finds herself fascinated by—and torn between—two best friends: Jem, whose fragile beauty hides a deadly secret, and blue-eyed Will, whose caustic wit and volatile moods keep everyone in his life at arm's length...everyone, that is, but Tessa.

As their search draws them deep into the heart of an arcane plot that threatens to destroy the Shadowhunters, Tessa realizes that she may need to choose between saving her brother and helping her new friends save the world...and that love may be the most dangerous magic of all.

Wicked Enchantment (Dark Magick, Book 1)Wicked Enchantment by Anya Bast
When you’re a half incubus, your reputation precedes you…

All eyes are on Gabriel Mac Braire the day he makes his first appearance in the Seelie Court, including those of Aislinn Finvarra. Despite deep bitterness over her last failed relationship, Aislinn cannot help but be curious about the half incubus who is known to possess dark magick, both lethal and sexual in nature. Rumors abound of the women who have become enslaved to his irresistible charms.

So when the Summer Queen of the fae orders Aislinn herself to act as his guide in the court, she is understandably on guard. She’s fallen under the spell of far less persuasive men before. In addition, Gabriel might be more than he seems and his true mission is far from innocent.

This time, Aislinn must protect not only her heart, but her very life… 


Three Days to DeadThree Days to Dead by Kelly Meding
They’ll never see her coming. . . .

When Evangeline Stone wakes up naked and bruised on a cold slab at the morgue—in a stranger’s body, with no memory of who she is and how she got there—her troubles are only just beginning. Before that night she and the two other members of her Triad were the city’s star bounty hunters, mercilessly cleansing the city of the murderous creatures living in the shadows, from vampires to shape-shifters to trolls. Then something terrible happened that not only cost all three of them their lives but also convinced the city’s other Hunters that Evy was a traitor—and she can’t even remember what it was.

Now she’s a fugitive, piecing together her memory, trying to deal some serious justice—and discovering that she has only three days to solve her own murder before the reincarnation spell wears off. Because in three days Evy will die again—but this time there’s no second chance. . . .


Maybe This Time Maybe This Time by Jennifer Crusie
Andie Miller is ready to move on in life. She wants to marry her fiance and leave behind everything in her past, especially her ex-husband, North Archer. But when Andie tries to gain closure with him, he asks one final favor of her before they go their separate ways forever. A very distant cousin of his has died and left North as the guardian of two orphans who have driven out three nannies already, and things are getting worse. He needs a very special person to take care of the situation and he knows Andie can handle anything…
When Andie meets the two children she quickly realizes things are much worse than she feared. The place is a mess, the children, Carter and Alice, aren’t your average delinquents, and the creepy old house where they live is being run by the worst housekeeper since Mrs. Danvers. What’s worse, Andie’s fiance thinks this is all a plan by North to get Andie back, and he may be right. Andie’s dreams have been haunted by North since she arrived at the old house. And that’s not the only haunting…
What follows is a hilarious adventure in exorcism, including a self-doubting parapsychologist, an annoyed medium, her Tarot-card reading mother, an avenging ex-mother-in-law, and, of course, her jealous fiance. And just when she thinks things couldn’t get more complicated, North shows up on the doorstep making her wonder if maybe this time things could be different between them.
If Andie can just get rid of all the guests and ghosts, she’s pretty sure she can save the kids, and herself, from the past. But fate might just have another thing in mind…


Dracula in LoveDracula in Love by Karen Essex
From the shadowy banks of the River Thames to the wild and windswept coast of Yorkshire, the quintessential Victorian virgin Mina Murray vividly recounts in the pages of her private diary the intimate details of what transpired between her and Count Dracula—the joys and terrors of a pas­sionate affair and her rebellion against a force of evil that has pursued her through time.

Mina’s version of this timeless gothic vampire tale is a visceral journey into the dimly lit bedrooms, mist-filled cemeteries, and locked asylum chambers where she led a secret life, far from the chaste and polite lifestyle the defenders of her purity, and even her fiancĂ©, Jonathan Harker, expected of her.

Bram Stoker’s classic novel was only one side of the story. Now, for the first time, Dracula’s eternal muse reveals all. What she has to say is more sensual, more devious, and more enthralling than ever imagined. The result is a scintillating gothic novel that reinvents the tragic heroine Mina as a modern woman tor­tured by desire.


A Hunger Like No Other (Immortals After Dark, Book 1) A Hunger Like No Other by Kresley Cole
A mythic warrior who'll stop at nothing to possess her . . .

After enduring years of torture from the vampire horde, Lachlain MacRieve, leader of the Lykae Clan, is enraged to find the predestined mate he's waited millennia for is a vampire. Or partly one. This Emmaline is a small, ethereal half Valkyrie/half vampire, who somehow begins to soothe the fury burning within him.

A vampire captured by her wildest fantasy . . .

Sheltered Emmaline Troy finally sets out to uncover the truth about her deceased parents -- until a powerful Lykae claims her as his mate and forces her back to his ancestral Scottish castle. There, her fear of the Lykae -- and their notorious dark desires -- ebbs as he begins a slow, wicked seduction to sate her own dark cravings.

An all-consuming desire . . .

Yet when an ancient evil from her past resurfaces, will their desire deepen into a love that can bring a proud warrior to his knees and turn a gentle beauty into the fighter she was born to be?

Masked by Moonlight--Featured Reviewer

Masked by Moonlight
New Orleans homicide detective Charlotte Caissie is used to investigating grisly killings and going after the mob. She's not used to falling for a mob boss's sexy, shadowy second-in-command. The dark something oddly familiar. When Cee-Cee is attacked in a dark alley and Max rescues her, she realizes he once saved her life years ago. Max is hiding a dangerous secret, and an unknown link to her past...and worse, she's falling in love with him ( Goodreads.com)


This was another paranormal romance set in the new Orleans. Charlotte is the detective and max works for the mob and he happens to be a shape shifter. I liked the good vs bad aspect of the them working together.

Cute romance but I didn't feel any heat and i was enjoying the mystery more , but at times it seemed predictable on who murdered who--to gain control of an area. Liked knowing that there was going to be a 2nd book and more information about the cast of characters.


I did enjoy seeing some of the past memories and how they all knew each but wanted more answers. I understand that this is first book , to set it up a series but I had more questions .

Review Posted by Tina at TinasbookReviews
Book Synopsis

New Orleans homicide detective Charlotte Caissie is dedicated to bringing down the crime boss responsible for her father’s murder. Using Jimmy Legere’s mysterious and irresistible right-hand man is a dangerous gamble, and not only due to his reputation as more monster than man. Because her feelings for Max Savoie are . . . complicated. Rescued from the swamps as a child, Max exists silently in Legere’s shadow, heeding only his voice—until Charlotte Caissie awakens his emotions and tests his loyalties. Stepping outside his cautious rules threatens more than just his heart. He could expose his darkest secret. Testing boundaries they weren’t meant to cross means facing the truth about who and what they are—and what they need from each other. If Max is the murderer she seeks, Charlotte could be his next victim. She can’t afford to trust any man. Good thing Max isn’t one. (Goodreads)
Review

What do you get when you take a tough chick that can deliver a deathly blow, has a tough exterior and can wear the deadliest shade of red lipstick and make it look good.....well you get Charlotte Caissie. Now my friends what do you get when you take a tall, dark, smoking hot assassin who can wear leather better than the animal it came from.....well you get Max Savoie. These two are just two hot for each other and they should of known any trip into romance valley would be the undoing of them both, but just like sizzling bacon always makes it to my plate, Max and Charlotte make it into each others arms. With a murderer on the loose killing your basic deadbeats, the two will find themselves at the very center of the murders and the very thing that links them together.

The world of Moonlight was a dark, well created plotline that kept me on the edge of my seat until the end. The chemistry in the novel however, defiantly worked for a fiction setting.....BUT.....I couldn't buy the relationship realistically, I tend to agree with my comrade Parajunkee on this one and cant see this happening in real-life, minus the fact that Max was a werewolf, he was deeply entangled in high crime and murder, while Charlotte was a lead detective and police officer. I'm sure somewhere the written rule is never get sexually or emotionally involved with the criminal or lead suspect in a case. Regardless though, it worked well for Charlotte and Max, having similar pasts, each coming from a traumatic experience that changed both their lives, the two had connections that made sense and the draw was easy to connect to in its paranormal setting. While Charlotte is deeply committed to her job as a detective, Max is deeply committed to Jimmy, the man who saved him as a child. And while Charlotte jumps the gun a bit (handcuffing a werewolf for example) and Max always seems to be running away- the whole enchilada just wrapped these two in a mess of tangled emotions, betrayal to their jobs and sketchy futures.The murders, crime and suspense all played backseat compared to the love roller coaster Gideon threw me on. Even though from a reality standpoint I couldn't see a couple like this making it, somehow Max and Charlotte pulled it off. Gideon's writing was sharp and highly engrossing. I became immediately sucked in the world of Moonlight and loved every minute of it.

Rating
Masked by Moonlight is recommended to adults only. Contains graphic language, violence, murder, blood and gore, explicit sexuality, paranormal themes and smoking hot abs........

Masked by MoonlightMasked by Moonlight by Nancy Gideon

Homicide detective Charlotte Caissie is used to investigating grisly killings and going after the mob. She's not used to working alongside New Orleans' preternatural mob enforcer to keep the city from erupting in violence and she definitely isn't used to falling for a mob boss's sexy, shadowy right-hand man. The dark rumours that swirl about Max Savoie are frightening, but he's a contradiction with his unblinking stare and sly smile, Armani suits and red Converese tennis shoes. There's something endearing about him, something naive and...familiar. One night when Cee-Cee is attacked in a dark alley and Max steps in to rescue her, she realizes he saved her life years ago as a teen. Max is everything Cee Cee should steer clear of. He's hiding a dangerous secret and some unknown link to her past. But he's the perfect stepping stone in her crusade to bring down New Orleans' mob boss. If only she could get over her annoying aversion to using Max, and could stop falling in love with him - or at least use that love to her advantage...

Generation Dead Top Reviewer



Our Generation Dead Top Review is from Sarah's Book Reviews:

Review: Generation Dead - Daniel Waters

The dead boy reached for her, his pale eyes glowing in the darkness.

All over the country, teenagers who die aren't staying dead.

Against her better judgement, Phoebe finds herself drawn to Tommy Williams.  He's gorgeous, funny, on the football team.  And dead.

But not everybody is as accepting as Phoebe.  There are those who would like to rid the community of this sinister phenomenon, and they'll stop at nothing to achieve it...

Review:
All over America teenagers who have died are coming back from the dead but not as your traditional zombies.  They have very slow speach and aren't very fast at moving but other than that they are basically able to carry on as normal - even attending school.  No one knows how or why some teenagers are coming back but it is happening more often and the living-dead community is growing larger.  Some people are very understanding but the majority aren't happy - some even think that it's a sign of the end of the world. 

I have really mixed feelings about this book, I thought the premise was brilliant and I really thought I was going to love the story but unfortunately I was disappointed.  To start with the positives I thought the way Daniel Waters dealt with the relationship between the living and the not quite dead was very well done.  I'm sure if teenagers ever do start coming back as zombies then the reaction from society in general (and teenagers in particular) would probably be very similar to how it was described in the book.  The book tackles important issues regarding discrimination and prejudice and it did make me think a lot about racism.  I love a book that can make me think so I really enjoyed this aspect of the story - especially as we are able to get inside the heads of both the people who are prejudiced and those who are being discriminated against.

On the other hand I found it really difficult to relate to Phoebe who was the main character.  Even half way through the book I was feeling that I hardly knew anything about her & I still have no idea why she was interested in Tommy.  I think if she'd known Tommy from before he died then it would have been a lot easier to believe her attraction to him.  I actually found the fact that she had a crush on a dead guy that she'd never even spoken to & knew absolutely nothing about really creepy.  I was also really unimpressed by Tommy - as a friend or a minor character he would have been fine but he just didn't strike me as main love interest material and I spent most of the book thinking "please don't go there Phoebe". 

My favorite character by far was Adam who is Phoebe's best friend.  I thought he was great - at first he doesn't seem like the nicest guy, he's got anger issues who gets in fights and hangs out with a rough crowd but it soon becomes clear that he is changing.  He isn't happy with his old crowd and although he isn't keen on the living dead characters to start with he doesn't like the way his old friends bully them.  Throughout the book you really get to see him grow up and come into his own and I loved him for that.

It took quite a long time for the story to suck me in but once it did I was curious to find out what was going to happen.  I'm don't want to give any spoilers so I'll just say I was gutted by the ending!  I'm going to have to read the second book just to find out what happens next.

September's YA Title:

Infinite Days by Rebecca Maizel

“Throughout all my histories, I found no one I loved more than you…no one.”

Those were some of Rhode’s last words to me. The last time he would pronounce his love. The last time I would see his face.
It was the first time in 592 years I could take a breath. Lay in the sun. Taste.


Rhode sacrificed himself so I, Lenah Beaudonte, could be human again. So I could stop the blood lust.

I never expected to fall in love with someone else that wasn’t Rhode.


But Justin was…daring. Exciting. More beautiful than I could dream.

I never expected to be sixteen again…then again, I never expected my past to come back and haunt me…
