I write, read and review, I blog frequently and love anything to do with books and writing, including editing. I am a Book Nerd and I wear that badge with pride. http://coffee2words.wordpress.com
This is the first of C.V Hunt's books I've read, and while it didn't knock my socks off, it was an easy and entertaining read. So I will be reading more.
Endlessly, the first book in a trilogy, and really does introduce you to an interesting world of paranormal beings.
Verloren, our male lead, is an old (and I mean old) vampire who parades around in the human world as a goth. Being a vampire in Hunt's world means being albino white, drinking blood and teaming up with werewolves to dispose of the bodies.
Ash, our female lead, is a bit of a nebulous being. At first we think she's human, then she's not, then she's something else and well, where things end up, well I was not expecting that at all.
The story was fast paced, perhaps a little too fast in the romance department, but I can't really complain about insta-love because it is explained and I guess I can kinda see why it happened the way it did.
Anyway, all in all, I didn't love this, nor hate it. It was a very quick read, an easy read and had likable characters moving through a quick plot. Things didn't drag, nor did they get too fast. The pacing was pretty much perfect.
I'd have liked a little more depth to the characters, but I think some of that might come in books 2 and 3. Well I can hope for that anyway.
One thing I noticed:
