Kurzbeschreibung

Imagine living a human charade for fifteen years and never knowing it. Imagine being provided less than a week to learn and accept your family’s true heritage before it overtook you. Alexa Jackson, Lexi, is abruptly thrown onto this roller coaster and quickly learns that she can’t change fate, regardless of how many lifetimes she is given. She will be transformed into a vampeen on her sixteenth birthday, she will be called upon to fulfill a greater destiny within the dangerous world of vampires, and she will have to risk heartbreak and rejection if she ever wants a chance at love with Kellan, whether she likes it or not.

5.0 von 5 Sternen So bad it's good 19. Oktober 2011
Von Katrina - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
I downloaded this book on the basis of it's negative reviews, and got everything I was hoping for. By the end I was literally holding my sides and howling with laughter. This could be a new cult classic.

Take the typical teen angst/Twilight rip-off setting that has become so popular. Check. High School girl with best friend, new boy, and issues. Check. Werewolves? Not this time. Vampires? Check. Angsty brooding, family secrets, inner turmiol, big transformation, confrontation, resolution? Check. Hot vampy love? Not so much.

The thing that makes this particular teen angst/Twilight rip-off special is the absolute incredible awfulness of the writing. If one descriptor would do, why not use two? If you know a word, use it. If you know a bigger, more awkward word to use in it's place, go with that one! And hey kids, it's spin the thesaurus, dig the dictionary time! It is as though the author was trying to get points for using the most big words possible in each page.

The book is clogged with moment-by-moment descriptions of the protagonist's apparel, with brand name everything from clothes, of course, to stores and transportation and even food. It's wierd, given the love/happiness/sharing end of the book. But part of what makes it so funny. And we go from teeny-bob passsing notes in class, texting, talking IRL that sounds almost authentic to these characters, to gobs of stuff that they are supposed to say spontaneously that has clearly been labored over, again and again, the author sweating and digging deep to get it just so horribly wrong.

As I type the typing of this sentence, in a manner to describe the description found in this book, I wonder whether this will be the newest latest hottest funny rock star punk book, and god I hope so. I hope the writer had just as much fun with it as I did, and that this is one big ironic wink for those who get it to get it. But somehow, I doubt it.

1.0 von 5 Sternen Materialistic wish fulfillment fluff 23. September 2011
Von morehumanthanhuman - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
Vampires, in the post-"Twilight" world, have become a real mix-and-match type of character for authors. If you don't like certain characteristics associated with vampires, just make up new ones. Have your vampires drink from animals, go outside (and sparkle), do whatever you feel. What do you do, however, if even new style best-of-all-possible-characteristics vampires aren't special enough for you? Enter the "vampeen," a rather unfortunate name that sounds more like something that Edward might pull out of his pants during a moment of passion than the vampire-human hybrid this book introduces us to.

Lexi is a "regular" teenage girl ("regular" in that her socio-economic status is way beyond that of the average teenager) who, Twilight-style, notices a mysterious but cute classmate. He turns out to know her family and quickly lets her know that her life is about to change forever. She's a vampire-human hybrid and all the non-human parts of her genetic code will turn on exactly at midnight on her sixteenth birthday, which - conveniently - is just a week away. Apparently her parents thought the less time she had to deal with this the better (they also felt like it was better for a near-total stranger to help guide her through this transition). They're really the ciphers in the book - they don't much guide her or help her at all. Their function is to fund all her activities and discourage her from having sex. I would figure that any person who is literally hunting humans can make her own decision about sex, but this book has the same weird anti-sex vibe that permeates the "Twilight" series.

As a "vampeen," Lexi is immortal and will gain superhuman strength and speed. She will also lose all the extra weight that has been plaguing her and will be a perfect size four (and be beautiful). However, vampires hate vampeens (there's a whole clunky backstory) and she is advised to maintain a low profile so that she doesn't draw the attention of the vampire hunter. Instead she decides to throw a huge, over-the-top sweet sixteen party to debut her new size four figure in front of all the classmates who were mean to her (literally - she had two friends before her transformation).

Reading this book is like getting a lengthy tour of the author's personal wish fulfillment fantasies. She wakes up amazingly beautiful, has two cute guys fighting over her, has an aunt to take her on a shopping spree where they spend tens of thousands of dollars, gets a Mercedes, is super-powerful, has rare "vampeen" abilities (weirdly, the ability is "will power"), has a perfect body, experiences an amazing love connection with a cute vampire, and becomes immortal. I finally hit my limit when it was revealed to her that she was the one foretold in "vampeen" (I'm sorry - I refuse to take the word seriously) prophecy who will bring peace between the vampire and "vampeen" camps. It's just too ridiculous. At the end of the book, Lexi - out of pretty much nowhere - springs her unique theological theory on us. Vampires and "vampeens" are actually God's chosen people. Well, Lexi, I'm glad you cleared that up. Pages and pages of how beautiful she thinks she is now, how awesome her Juicy Couture sweats are, how great her stuff is . . . it's vacant materialistic junk.

The story would be enough to justify the low star rating, but the writing is what really pushes it over the top. I thought for the first few chapters that the author had used a word processor thesaurus program to replace "regular" words with fancier words, giving the book an awkward feel - but then I began running into misuses that I know even a computer wouldn't suggest. Things like "the iPod engulfed his bicep" (that sounds like a horrible technical malfunction), "no indecent exposure was placating before you" (huh?), and "I really wish I could have captured the pure divulgence her eyes depicted." Those are just three misused words out of dozens. Even when words are technically correct, the effect is so bizarre. One character will ask another a question and the response will be several pages of stilted and floral language, an inept baroque stew of words and then other character will then respond with something like "O.M.G!". "?!" is regularly used as a punctuation mark. The writing is just . . . not good.

2.0 von 5 Sternen I had good expectations until.. 13. Oktober 2011
Von Oddgirl - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
I had downloaded this book a bit ago, and had honestly forgotten exactly what the storyline was when I started reading it. I rather enjoyed the first half of the book. The storyline, while very Twilight-esque, had some interesting plot lines that I was excited to see developed, notably the vampire killer and the war between the vampires and vampeens. I also thought the premise of someone changing from human to vampeen was going to be interesting. However, after the main character's transformation into a vampeen, the book took a drastic turn for the worst. It was rife with pages and pages of descriptions of the hot new clothes she was able to buy that matched the hot new body that she had which she was going to use to impress/seduce her hot new boyfriend. It was more fluff than I could stand, and trust me I have a fairly high tolerance for fluff.

The other peeve I had about this book was the rampant laughable misspellings. I seriously would have given this book another star if it weren't for them. Here are a few examples: "I lied down on my bed" where "lied" was misused in this fashion at least a half a dozen times, "tourane" was used to describe the TERRAIN on the golf course, and while shopping an "empire wasted shirt" was purchased instead of an empire waist shirt. Come on. Tourane isn't even a WORD! I think the book would have been greatly improved if only someone would have paid attention to their spell check. It was incredibly painful.

1.0 von 5 Sternen Too Many Problems 28. August 2011
Von Sandra - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
This book falls short on so many levels. The dialogue is not organic and outdated/unrealistic. Paired with the dialogue, the characters come across as cartoony that have no meaningful substance. I didn't like any of them, especially the main character.

The main girl's actions and thoughts weren't justified to me. She's overweight but it's not explained why. Her parents are in shape, she seems to eat right, she has not problems at home that would suggest she was "eating her feelings". She's just heavy for the sake of being different it seems. But, then it goes away when she becomes a vampire and thus, "perfect". This transformation falls completely flat and her behavior after it makes me dislike her more. There's nothing wrong with an anti-hero but I found nothing to like about her.

The romance was just plain predictable and I cringed as it unfolded.

The story is extremely slow. The author takes way too long to start up events and mentions details about the characters too late in the story. Why did you mention she wears tennis shoes later on? You need to sprinkle details ahead of time or else the reader is going to assume whatever they want and then be surprised (and irritated) when you finally decide to mention them. Similarly, there is too much of nothing going on to begin with. It's mostly riddled with the MC's thoughts over the two guys she "fawns" over, mixed with so much information that has no point in moving the character/story forward.

The writing is not pleasing either. It's first POV so granted, I don't expect much from a teenager, like elegant prose, but it was almost all tell and no show. The author also uses too many dialogue tags, which is a big no-no in standard writing. Instead of saying ", he said", the author puts, "he scolded", "I teased", etc. This goes on throughout the entire story and is not necessary. It strips away a lot from the story.

I will say the story had potential. I thought the author could take certain actions I found silly and then prove me wrong and show that it had meaning to the character. However, this never happened.

I would not recommend this to anyone.

1.0 von 5 Sternen Immature at Best 30. September 2011
Von Natty0488 - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
This book was one of the worst books I have ever read. Now, that alone is saying something. First, if a book is truly terrible, I won't finish it. So, it's a bit better than books I have put down in disgust.
The character development was shoddy and unfulfilling. When the character Mike has his major change and pretty much becomes a different person, it was almost completely out of the blue. The only foreshadowing was a tense moment earlier in the book. Subtle forshadowing would have done wonders for this.
I found the numerous Twilight references tiring and cheap. We get it. You love Edward and everything Cullen related. I was literally disgusted when I read the name of the main character. Kellan? Really? Did anyone else notice this was a Twilight reference to the guy playing Emmett in the movies? And yes, I know this because I like the Twilight series.
The book reads like a fat girl wrote it. And I don't care how mean that sounds. I am overweight. I have been busting my butt for the last six months trying lose it at the gym and have lost over 40 pounds, just over my halfway mark. And having a character wake up, over a period of just 24 hours, and be perfect is disgusting to me. I'm sorry. You want to look beautiful and feel good, then do something. Don't sit at home and hope that you'll turn into a vampeen and it will all be better. The book truly reads like a fat girl wrote it based on her deepest desire to find her own Edward (whose eyes were a brilliant emerald green before he was changed) and be the hottest girl in the world with no effort. The charcter even mentions how she never could stick with a workout routine. Completely disgusting and pathetic book.
