Book Review: Vampire Academy: Shadow Kiss

Posted in Book Reviews, Books, Uncategorized on June 17, 2010 by teamjalice1863

This book was riveting and heartbreaking. I am impressed with the way the story developed. It was good to see more of Adrian Ivashkov, and Christian Ozera.

I am looking very forward to reading the next book in the series, Blood Promise.

Book Review: The Short Second Life of Bree Tanner by Stephenie Meyer

I am so happy that Stephenie Meyer finally released a new book. I am SAD because it was quite short. I guess we know why it was called a novella, not a novel.

Length aside, it was a fantastic read. I read it one day. It was intense, and sad, and tragic. But I loved it. Bree was one of my favorite newborns in Eclipse, and it was interesting to see it from her point of view.

Jasper came off as kind of harsh, and scary. But I do remember that Jasper was in “Major Whitlock” mode. It was very frightening.

I can only imagine how Bree Tanner must have felt.

I am hoping that this is not the last we’ll hear of the Twilight verse. Though I can’t imagine what else Meyer could to top it.

This book makes a good stand alone, but it is best read with the Twilight Saga.

Book Review: The Demon’s Covenant by Sarah Rees Brennan

This is the second book in a trilogy that I feel is spellbinding, and amazing!! The Demon’s Covenant starts where the previous book, the Demon’s Lexicon left off.

If I am being honest, the book took me by surprise. It started off somewhat slow, though that could have just been all in my head, since Nick and Alan were not in the first three or four pages.

But I really did enjoy this book. It had a lot of twists, turns, and action. There was also some tragedy, and a little bit of romance thrown in.

Once again, Alan Ryves kept us guessing. He is one of those characters that you just really have to keep a close eye on. As a previous Alan fan girl, I enjoyed trying to figure him out. out.

The best part about this book is that we got to see a lot of Nick. We saw him trying to be a little bit more human for his brother, and maybe, even if he won’t admit it, for Mae.

I have totally switched alliances, and I can’t wait to read the final installment of the trilogy. Way to go, Sarah!
