    "I'm a huge fan of Vampire Academy and the third installment of the series, Shadow Kiss, might just be my favorite. Rose is a great character and I'm hooked on her and Dmitri. The only frustrating part of the book is when it ended... on a cliffhanger! But that nitpicking aside, Shadow Kiss is one of the best YA supernatural books for sure."

    "When I began this trilogy I thought this would be the end. It gives you a non-ending but doesn’t leave you gasping WTH! while fuming at the author. It was left open for future interactions so this is not the last of the characters we will see so don’t panic. This book contained more action then the previous two combined in my opinion. We meet new people and see a whole new side of this supernatural world I felt that I was beginning to know. This author has repeatedly won me over with this trilogy. The plot and characters are unforgettable. I have read it multiple times now and want nothing more than to go back and start over. If you haven’t picked up this trilogy please do so. You will not be disappointed! If you are leery of The Reckoning due to the non-ending, don't be. This trilogy is more than worth the read. This author has impressed me beyond anything I have previously read."

    "I think this is a pretty decent direction to look in, as this book sounds interesting. However, this is not the most direct solution as it is the second book in a series, and I would very much like to start from the beginning. However, seeing as this book has glowing reviews and it sounsd very interesting, I think I will pick up the first book and check it out. "

    " I feel like that this book was really great. The characters were written very well. There was a lot of action in the book in which in made you want to read more to see what happens next. The story wasn't ever to dull, nor was it hard to read. It was a great take on a Heaven vs. Hell storyline that told a good story without getting too outrageous. I do believe that this book is a must read if you want to try something really different."

I guess that's a decent endorsement, however, she can't stop talking about the main character which is what really grabbed her and kept her reading through to the end."

The story builds slowly, but is one you won't want to put down. When she finally met Ethan, their chemistry was obvious but the secrets that are discovered through their relationship were not predictable."
