Kurzbeschreibung

"A fantastic new vampire series!"
--Morgan Rice, #1 Bestselling author of THE VAMPIRE JOURNALS

In SAVED (Book #1 of the Shadow Vampires), Keira and Amanda, twins, move with their family to a new town, and start their senior year at a new high school. But though they are twins, the girls have different fates. Amanda, beautiful, popular, is sought out by everyone. Keira, who has always lived in Amanda’s shadow, is smaller, awkward, different. Even her mother, who is so close to Amanda, doesn’t know what to make of her other daughter. Keira turns to books, and to her journal, for solace, and to find out about other worlds.

Amanda makes friends easily at the new school, and quickly finds a boyfriend, while Keira is left alone, an outsider. But very quickly, it is clear that something strange is going on in Everstock. The town and the school are very divided. The popular, rich kids act as if they own the school and have nothing to do with the other kids, who are poorer and live in a different part of town. Not only are the kids meaner here, but an unknown infection has gripped the town, with more and more people going to the hospital. Something here is terribly wrong.

But things change suddenly, as there is a terrible accident involving the twins. Not only are Keira and Amanda’s lives changed forever, but a new dimension of life begins to open to Keira.

As Keira recovers, she begins to change in ways she can’t expect, receiving new and mysterious powers that no one can possibly understand. At the same time, a gorgeous, mysterious new boy, Cooper, appears at the school, who grips her imagination, and who refuses to tell her what secret he is hiding.

As Keira and Cooper grow closer to each other, it soon becomes apparent that destiny has brought them together—and that they may each have to sacrifice it all if they want to stay together…

Book #2 in the Shadow Vampire series (TOUCHED) is now also available, and Book #1 in Allegra's new fantasy series, CHARLOTTE TWEED AND THE SCHOOL FOR ORPHANED DRAGONS (Book #1) is now also available!

4.0 von 5 Sternen Vampire mal etwas anders 26. Juli 2011
Von Tita
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
Im Buch geht es um Keira, die schon immer total anders als ihre Zwillingsschwester Amanda war. Sie war nie so hübsch oder beliebt. Nach dem Umzug in eine neue Stadt, wird das nur wieder deutlich. Amanda findet sofort Anschluss, Keira ist mehr der Außenseiter. Allerdings fällt ihr auf, dass in der Stadt alles ein wenig anders ist. Im Krankenhaus geht ein mysteriöser Virus um und die Leute aus der reichen Gegend sind extrem abgehoben und seltsam. Dann kommt es zu einem Autounfall der Zwillinge, Keira fährt, entkommt aber fast unverletzt, während Amanda im Koma liegt. Für Keira ändert sich einiges, sie erkennt ungewöhnliche Kräfte in sich und distanziert sich zunehmend von ihren Eltern, die ihr die Schuld an dem Unfall gehen. Dafür verliebt sie sich in den seltsamen Cooper, der sich aber immer wieder von ihr zurück zieht. Zusätzlich wird sie in der Schule immer beliebter und alle mögen sie jetzt, so wie zuvor Amanda. Doch für Keira zählt nur noch Cooper. Am Ende wird noch das Geheimnis um ihn gelüftet und um die merkwürden Schatten-Vampire.

Insgesamt lies sich das Buch sehr leicht und locker lesen. Obwohl am Anfang lange Zeit nicht wirklich etwas passiert, macht es Spaß zu lesen. Die Schatten-Vampire fand ich sehr interessant, weil es einfach mal wieder ein ganz neuer Ansatz ist. Was mir nicht so gut gefallen hat, war der Charakter der Keira. Die Veränderungen, die mit ihr vorgehen, sind meiner Meinung nach nicht unbedingt gut.

1.0 von 5 Sternen Not the Best 16. August 2011
Von Sarah - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
This is one of the worst vampire books I've ever read, and I've read a lot of them. The characters are poorly developed, the plot goes far too fast to be well-explained, and there are so many grammatical errors that I could barely focus on anything else. The idea for the plot is fine, and it could probably make a good story, but it seems like thre was no editing or proofreading done on this. The whole Cooper thing is ridiculous- Keira is supposed to be getting stronger and coming into her own, but when Cooper says that can't see each other all the time, she doesn't see a point in living anymore? Please. The characters' actions constantly contradict what we have already been told about them. I think that this is what bothered me the most about the book. There were SO MANY holes in the story. Things are mentioned and never explained, characters constantly do things that make no sense, and Keira suddenly develops powers that not only are not explained, but that she just accepts. Are we just supposed to accept that, for no reason, she has enough power to read minds and save her sister from her coma, and she doesn't find that odd in the least? SO bad. Very, very disappointing.

1.0 von 5 Sternen NO!!!!!! NO!!!!!! NO!!!!!!! 29. September 2011
Von kgirl232 - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
This is half a day of my life I'll never get back. I love vampire books and will read about anything. But after reading this and (yes I did finish it only because I kept figuring it had to get better)I can honestly say I'll never read this author again. I wouldnt recommend this book to anyone. Don't waste your money. Besides the fact that I dont think anyone proof read the book, it was just boring. What I guess would be the major part in the book didnt come out until the very end and then it was over in less than a chapter.

2.0 von 5 Sternen Good Idea, But Unable to Connect 5. August 2011
Von Andrea Thompson - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
Saved is the story of Keira, a high school senior adjusting to life in a new town. Burdened with a family who doesn't understand her, Keira struggles to assimilate to their new life. Amanda, the more popular, glamorous twin, quickly leaves Amanda behind. With no one to truly connect with, Keira feels totally alone. While Keira is trying to adjust, the town is being taken over by an unexplained infection, leaving the patients with puncture wounds on the neck. After Keira and Amanda are involved in a tragic accident, Keira is able to hear people's thoughts and develops an inner strength she has never known before. As she's trying to adjust to her new abilities, Kiera falls under the spell of the handsome and to mysterious Cooper, who obviously harbors dangerous secrets.

To be honest, I was unable to fully connect to Saved. Some of the major plot points did not feel fully fleshed out. For example, the mysterious infection. We first learn about this when Keira's father, a physician, brings up the subject at home. Other than the few times its discussed amongst the two, not a lot happens with that subject. I thought that the infection could have had more depth within the story. Another plot point that felt lacking was Keira's new abilities. After an accident, Keira is able to hear thoughts and has a new found inner strength. But, it's never explained. The closest that's given to an answer was from Cooper, who said, basically, I don't know what you are, but you're not human. That's it. Maybe the answers to these questions will be in a sequel. If that's the case, great. But I prefer when a book answers at least some of the questions that come up.

Another problem I had was the relationship between Cooper and Keira. This is a relationship gave me just did not work for me. Keira practically falls in love with Cooper after seeing him walk across campus, then in the cafeteria. Then, she's declaring to herself that there will never be anyone else for her after speaking to him only a few times. I'm not saying that there can't be a scenario where the characters quickly fall in love, but give me a reason. These characters barely spoke to one another.

I will say that I did like Keira. While she could get a little on the whiny side, I was always rooting for her. She definitely became a more engaging character after she started using her new abilities to her advantage. And, a sequel that answered the questions raised in Saved would definitely be more satisfying.

1.0 von 5 Sternen incredibly amateurish 18. Juli 2012
Von S. Buchanan - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
This book started out somewhat interesting, but it quickly degenerated, and by the end was a complete mess. Don't waste your time. Skye obviously needs to learn a lot about writing and crafting a decent story. The last several chapters seem like she didn't even care enough to re-read what she'd written (much less edit it) before publishing. (Like, in the scene where she's getting ready for a dance, she doesn't have anything to wear, then she puts on one of her sister's dresses, then suddenly she's putting on slacks and a sweater, and then she's wearing the dress again. And not like she's trying different outfits. It's clear the author just forgot what happened in the last paragraph a couple times.)

2.0 von 5 Sternen Needs editing 12. Juli 2011
Von DvusLeoGirl - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
The story was continually chopped up by misinformation. Specifically, toward the end the main characters spend the night together "fully clothed", but then a couple pages later it says either she, he, or both had to get up and get dressed. There were multiple places with similar problems. It read like a book that may have been written for adults, then later adjusted for a younger audience. Unfortunately, it wasn't edited well.
*****Spoiler Alert*****
I liked the story going in, but I thought the premise that the vampires fed on cruelty although they still managed to leave bite marks in the necks of their victims was silly. My 4th grader might find it interesting though...
