From the first book, where Ridley learns about vampires, to the second and third, where she must come to turns with the loss of some friends and her own destiny. The third, and final, book is the best. The whole trilogy is well worth the read. Aug 23, Molli rated it liked it Shelves: vampire-addiction.

There is no foul language but there are several intense vampire violence scenes that some might get turned off to.

She relocated to the warmer climates of the South, where she can be near the water all summer and miss the snow all winter. Possessed of an overactive imagination from early in her childhood, Michelle finally found an acceptable outlet for her fantastical visions: literary fiction. Having written over a dozen novels, these days Michelle enjoys letting her mind wander to more romantic settings with sexy Southern guys, much like the one she married and the ones you'll find in her latest books.
When her thoughts aren't roaming in that direction, she'll be riding wild horses, skiing the slopes of Aspen or scuba diving with a hot rock star, all without leaving the cozy comfort of her office.

About Michelle: I love coffee and chocolate, even more so when they are combined. I'm convinced that one day they could be the basis for world peace. I also love the color red and am seriously considering dying my hair. Other books in the series. He makes some serious mistakes in his relationship with Ridley, but many of those can probably be traced back to his belief that he really isn't the best for her. I like the fact that he has some real flaws. It makes the relationship seem a little more normal, or at least as normal as a human-vampire relationship can be.
This novel also seemed deeper in some ways than Twilight because of some of the issues that the main characters were having to work through.
Ridley, as well as her mother and father, are struggling to deal with the death of her older sister. Although the crash that killed her was more than three years earlier, they are nowhere close to being back to normal. They are a perfect example of a disfunctional family, simply going through the motions each day of work, school, and church without really engaging in any of it. Ridley is dealing with an alcoholic mother and an absentee father, and her struggles lend her character a depth that feels very real.
Bo is also struggling with the murder of his father -- seeking out his killer to gain his revenge while also having a relationship with a mother who he is not exactly close to. None of these issues were truly resolved by the end of this novel, and I appreciated that because no problems in life which are that difficult can be solved in a manner of months.
If I have a few complaints, they are these: This is not a problem that is specific to this book in particular, but it is a problem that I see in many young adult PNR books.
