    "I remember my girlfriend being very excited when this novel was nominated for some award. I didn't follow it very closely but it was certainly something she was into, which I tried to appreciate. One of the characters is a heart-throb fallen angel type, although I don't remember there being any werewolves or vampires proper. Perhaps the fallen angel character can be considered sort of an archetype for vampires."

    "I LOVED this book. We started listening to the audio version in the car before I bought the paperback. My son is an audio learner, so we are constantly looking for books to listen to. We had recently listened to another WW2 book told from a kid's perspective. This was recommended to us, but we were warned the content was much more mature than the first book, even though it is also focused on a "child". While that was true, it wasn't a bad thing. I really enjoyed the narrator for the audio book, and I am quite picky. I ended up buying the paperback because I couldn't stand to wait to see what happened since I only listened with my son in the car. I was enjoying it enough to think it was worth the purchase. I'm glad I bought it. It is "heavy" but I did fall in love with the characters and know I'll be revisiting it again and again. One thing that I found unique about this book was that it was told from the view of "death", or maybe a grim reaper...but it is not in any way fantasy. Looking back, I can't imagine it being told from any other perspective and I'm so glad the author seemed to realize that too. "

    "I once had experienced this type of narrative in a movie called Paranormal Activity. I don't remember too much about the movie but a lot of strange things happen out of nowhere which is beyond the protagonists control. It becomes very supernatural and a bunch of crazy stuff happens and this kind of reminds me of that. Even though the setting and context is completely different from each other, it sounds like a pretty nice experience."

    "If you're into snappy dialogue and a fun read, "No Future for You" will fit the bill. But if you want something a bit darker, where the vampires are twisted bad-ass characters, I would recommend staying away from all the Buffy material. I never got into the TV show and can't get into these graphic novels or comic books, either."

    "Dark Magic is the fourth book in Christine Feehan's Dark Series. Gregori is the Dark One, the hunter, who is always alone. Thousands of years old, Gregori is on the verge of turning vampire. He is desperate to join with his lifemate, the only person who can stop his dark descent. All Carpathian males must find their lifemates to keep their darkness from taking over their minds. Failure to do so condemns them to life as vampires of legend unless they chose to end their existence and go into the sun. There is only one lifemate for each man and woman. Gregori's job is to hunt down these vampires and kill them. Now he is on the verge of becoming that which he hunts. Daughter of the Carpathian prince and his human lifemate, Savannah Dubrinsky is desperately afraid of Gregori. She wants no part of being his lifemate. While she was in the womb, Gregori touched her, manipulating nature so she would be his lifemate and his salvation. He didn't count on her refusing him on her eighteenth birthday. He finally agrees to give her five years of freedom before coming for her. She runs away to America, thinking she can hide from him. She becomes a world famous magician and thinks she has escaped him and her Carpathian roots. Unfortunately for her, he knows exactly where she is as do other Carpathians who have already turned vampire. Savanna has her hands full trying to convince Gregori she is not some weak woman who has to obey his every command. She is independent and wants to keep it that way. On the other hand, Gregori is used to giving orders and having them obeyed. What he doesn't count on is the way he wants to give in to her whims and the way his heart beats faster every time he looks at her. He believes he knows what's good for her and his first duty is to protect her, even if against herself. It was fun seeing a softer side of Gregori. The book moves to New Orleans, which is also fun. I recommend this whole series to lovers of romance. A word of warning: the series is very sexy :)"
