Eve is a vampire who is having a normal human life, she has a job she enjoy’s and a new man in her life. However everything is turned upside down when an old lover tries to kill her and it dawns on them that a powerful vampire, her maker, wants Eve back and he’ll make sure he returns to him.
I don’t understand this story. The vampire part was fine, having vampires moving during the day is unusual but nothing too bad, then there was the other parts; the vampires aren’t overly strong, Eve rarely drinks blood, they eat human food because they still get hungry (isn’t that why they drink blood?) and finally they can get pregnant but it’s a lot harder for women.
Basically the author hasn’t tweaked the whole vampire ideal, but put it on it’s head. Having vampire’s able to use mirrors and the like is fine, nothing wrong with that, but having a human able to punch a vampire? What? Or having a bunch of human’s able to fight off a group vampires? You can tweak the myth of vampires, but surely Meyers has taught everyone a lesson on why you shouldn’t put a legend on it’s head?
The character’s were rather lifeless, Eve was irritating and her human lover Marc was just… He was able to deal with the fact that she is a vampire so easily? How and why?
There was too many character’s that should have had more spot light given to them, like Eve’s best friend, but they couldn’t because this isn’t a long story to tell, which is a bit of a shame really.
The climax happened rather quickly, although it was rather obvious what would happen at the end.
Overall it’s a bad story that could easily be fixed and tweaked up a bit, but as it stands it’s really not worth reading.
