My rating: 5 of 5 stars
If i could i'd give this book...
Ten super shiny SHOUTY stars!
I got this from my local Morrisons for under £4, i didn't even know it was a PNR till i got it home. (I missed the "Dinner with a vampire" on the cover, the blonde hair says it all really.) So i read the blurb and did a bit of research and to my horror "Twilight- fan fiction" kept popping up every where, Aw hell no! so that was it i fell out with the book and shoved it to the back of my mind. But it kept catching my eye, so i cheated and read a few random pages from the middle of the book.. well that was it i was hooked! Best decisions i made that week to read this book.
I loved everything about this book. From the characters to the plot to the writing style.
Our two main characters Violet and Kaspar are so freakin' swoon worthy i loved them both so much! I did fear at the start that Violet was going to be one of those whiny, morngy self centered girls but i was so wrong! She's strong, funny, independent. Kaspar is our vamp, he's heir to the throne, rich, handsome, a complete man-whore and has a huge ego. He's also a very complex guy broken from the loss of his mother and suffering from the weight of responsibility on his shoulders. Both Violet and Kasper are hugely sarcastic so they just bounce off each other making for some pretty hilarious scenes.
There are a bunch of awesome and love to hate secondary characters along with everything from vamps to Inky the squid to balls and a dosing of teen drama! The plot is a bunch of twists and turns full of action and angst and sexy swoon worthy moments.
This is a very interesting start to the series, the second book being in Autumn's POV, i just hope we get more from Kaspar and Violet they were my favorite things about this book and it'd totally suck to loose them!
The writing style for this book is easy, fun and enjoyable. i flew through this book thriving off every page. Defiantly one of the best books Iv'e read all year.. maybe even ever. I will re-read this book it was freakin' brilliant!
The only thing about this book was we waited through-out the whole story for one crucial moment then it gets to the point and your all excited jumping in your chair then BAM! it's the end of the story.. i mean WTF mayyn!!! I did hope the second book would pick up where this one finished but how can it if it's in Autumn's POV? Confused.com!!! But even though that totally sucked i cant bring myself to lower it's rating one teeny tiny bit because that one thing just cant bring down how amazing the rest of the book actually was.
Kidnapped by a vampire, death by a squid. How traigc."
