Normally I am not at all a huge follower of YA books/stories. Could be because I am not a YA anymore and if I read all the experiences they are doing/having/feeling and how wise they are makes me always wonder. BUT not so in this book. The main character - Caleo - is really a 17 year old boy who never noticed in a good way how special he is. He is adorable and selfless and as soon as you start with the book you need to know what happens next to him. And not only he becomes close to your heart. All the characters are well defined and special in their own way. Actual I could not find anyone of the characters not unique and in their sense likeable.
The little love story and kind of coming out was written in a very sensible way which makes looking forward what is coming next.

The writing style was very fluently and so captivating that it was impossible for me to put the book away. And even then I looked for the second book which is/was also amazing!
James Crawford - Thank you very much for this story. Pls go on and make us happy with more of this kind of books.

We need more books like this one for YA readers!!!! 20. September 2012
Von Delphina - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
I absolutely love the premise of this book. A leech is a "vampire", but not at all in the way we think of them. They take peoples energy so that they can use their gifts, which vary from leech to leech. Such a fresh idea for the very popular world of para. I was beyond excited about this book before it even was through edits, so I had very high expectations. I think that was why I found the beginning a bit slow. Once it took off, however..... what a ride. I never knew what was coming next. I really enjoyed so many of the characters in this book. My personal favorite was the Grandmother. She sure is an amazing woman. I am finding that to be a trend of mine; loving the grandmas. I must be getting old ;), I really enjoyed this book and am looking forward to the next book in this series.

I would recommend this book for older teens and adults due to some violent content. There are two references to a case where a character was tortured and they gave me the willies. Also, the main character in this book was heavily bullied at school. There is no sexual content (one almost/maybe kiss), but there is a reference to a nudie magazine.

I was given a copy of this book.

An Action-Packed Read 27. Oktober 2012
Von Jamie Deacon - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
At seventeen, Caleo has never had what might be termed a normal life. Orphaned as a baby, he has been brought up by his eccentric grandmother at The Purple Rose bed and breakfast. He doesn't fit in at school, bullied equally for his unusual pale skin and white hair as for being gay. However, when a stranger turns up to inform Caleo that he is part of a supernatural race called leeches, magical beings who steal the energy from those around them in order to fuel their gifts, things get a whole lot more complicated.

Not only is Caleo a leech, he's the most powerful of all leeches, and holds their fate in his hands. Moreover, he finds himself plunged into the midst of what is effectively a civil war, with rival factions battling for rule. Those on both sides are desperate to turn Caleo's ability to their advantage, and will go to any lengths to gain control over him. With cities and towns flattened by rebel bombs, and just as many people wanting to kill as make use of him, Caleo must decide where his loyalties lie whilst fighting to stay alive.

At least he has his family to help him through, Jack most of all. Raised as his foster brother, Jack is the closest Caleo has to a friend. Caleo's love for him is obvious, even if he scarcely allows himself to acknowledge it. Well, he has long since accepted there can be no future for them. Jack is popular, athletic and incredibly handsome, while Caleo is a freak, a social outcast. He has no idea just how much Jack really cares about him, but will Jack have the courage to confess his feelings before it's too late and circumstances tear them apart?

This may be a work of fantasy, but there's a gritty realism about it that appealed to me. Good people die, and those who are left must learn how to survive in a world that has become hostile overnight. I also found the concept of leeches, these creatures that drain the energy from humans merely to increase their strength, a fascinating one. Though there are undoubtedly some editing issues, this in no way spoilt my enjoyment in the story.

If you're a fan of young adult fantasy, prefer novels with plenty of adventure, and are interested in how individuals cope when civilization as they know it collapses around them, you may want to give this book a go.

Intriguing, nerve racking, & completely original! 4. Januar 2014
Von Albinomex ~ Jeni's Bookshelf - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
What a great story! Intriguing, nerve racking, & completely original! YA dystopian paranormal appropriate for any age. I could not put it down. The Leeches, the Blessed, the Humans...they all held my attention & peaked my curiosity. This book does brings up a few sensitive matters including bullying, sexual orientation, & a scene describing abuse someone suffered, all of which were brought up in a tasteful manner & not taken to the extreme. Caleo is a quiet shy teen who has been bullied in school most of his life for his pale skin & white hair. He has no idea how amazing he truly is or the power he holds. The twists repeatedly amazed me as I assumed I had it all figured out...quickly realizing I did not...never even saw some of those things coming. I'm really looking forward to reading Jack!

Von Furio - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
Despite the impressive (TOO impressive) number of favourable reviews, this novel, the first instalment in a series, has little to recommend itself beside its nice cover and an interesting premise.

Plot twists are contrived, and disbelief is never suspended.
Characters are monodimensional, stiff and unlikeable. Not to mention stupid. Caleo is not an immature young adult, he is an idiot. Just take the school scene at the beginning, when instead of joining his classmate he tries to join his cousin Jake. Why does he not join his classmates? Everything that happens in those pages is absurd but only a harbinger of absurdities to come later on.

Writing is not particularly fluid and there are several mistakes.

Definitely different, in a good way! 5. Mai 2013
Von Tams (TTC Books and more) - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
I was drawn to this book by its amazing Cover. I am definitely a Cover Ho! Once I finished the book it was evident that the cover encompasses so much about the story that I loved it even more.

Caleo Anima is a social outcast at school with his pale skin, snow white hair and ice blue eyes he's obviously different and kids can be cruel. His best friend in the world is also his brother for all intents and purposes, though they aren't actually related. Caleo was raised by his grandmother along with orphaned siblings, Jack and Jill. He hides his sexuality from everyone fearing that this would be the catalyst that would make his life a living hell, he's in for quite the shock when finds out the truth about who he really is.

Crawford really brought his world to life with likeable characters and a twist on the all but worn out Vampire genre we are overrun with today. A Leech is a vampire, but not in the assumed sense of the term. Leeches feed off of peoples energy in order to use their "gift", and gifts vary from one Leech to another. Look at the cover and it should be evident what Caleo's gift is. Throw in an unrealized love triangle and some kick ass action sequences and you've got yourself a pretty enticing read!

I'm giving this one 3.5/5.. The story starts out slow but once the author found his flow it really became quite intriguing. There is some mature content as far as violence and extreme bullying that make the story harder to read at times, but it wasn't done in such a way that made me not want to continue. It was cautiously conveyed, extremely emotional and necessary to move the story in the right direction.

I'm glad I already have book 2 to start immediately as the cliff hanger Crawford left us with is just wrong! I also can't wait to see what will become of Caleo, Jack and Nolan. I'm hoping for a juicy make out scene in the next installment as well, although I can't decide which two I want to make out. Perhaps dreams can be realized and it will be all three!
