I loved the humor mixed in with the vampire plot, it mixed great - who knew? The Barnaby thing especially that accident in bed was kind of creepy and scary. I may not be able to look at milk the same way for a while, but, hey, good writing is worth a little sacrifice : I am looking forward to reading the rest of the series, although I do not currently own the other books, so it may be a little while. The first The Half-Blood Vampire series are great for something light and fun. Colby Blanchard had it all… Head cheerleader. What's a girl to do when she has so many problems -- and friends with so many problems? There is also a novella after the third book but I doubt I will go in search for it.
Oh, and her Vampire Investigator boyfriend Thomas? Let me start off by saying that I didn't know that this book was the final book in a trilogy until I finished reading it the first time. Let me start off by saying that I didn't know that this book was the final book in a trilogy until I finished reading it the first time. So, it shows 3 stars but I think it's actually more like 3. Dating for Demons is a fun and entertaining read--Not too heavy. She tossed it to number four; the surprised look on his face was pretty classic.
So I will put my thoughts down, and when I eventually read the whole series, I will do any necessary updates. If you would like you're book reviewed here at Secretly Captivated, don't hesitate to email me at readdarlingreviews hotmail. Maybe I feel like this review won't be quite accurate, as this is the only book I have read in the series. As it just so happens Piper is t the normal human that she believed she was. Maybe the author will be nice and write more? I didn't like that there was hardly any romance, aka lovey and passionate moments between Colby and Thomas.
There were definitely tons of obstacles in her path but she managed to overcome them with her own charm and wit. It's hard to save the day when everyone wants you dead. At first, I was a little on the fence about the 2 sets of narrative from Piper and Colby, but after getting into it, I realized it actually worked really well--Kept me on my toes. But it wasn't a light and fun read as the first book. I highly recommend it for young readers--I think they'll love it, and older folk like me will enjoy it too. Add to it a sorority house full of Undead sisters that constantly need defending… and an onslaught of full-blood vampire attacks.
If you're looking for something with vampires but not of the dark brooding variety give this one a try. At least she's just helping decipher some ancient texts and staying away from the rough stuff. When one of them shows up dead, Colby must face the fact that not every girl is who they say they are…especially when one might be a full blood vampire who wants the other half-bloods dead. He threw it back and before I knew it they were playing a game of hot potatoe with this guy's noggin. The Barnaby thing especially that accident in bed was kind of creepy and scary. With the clock ticking, Colby has to prove herself by finding the Rogue Vampire who tried to turn her.
I mean, I loved Piper — she was great and added a certain spice and attitude to the series but still, why and how did they become friends all of a sudden? Not yet released, or if they're already released. Braced to Bite Book 1 : Colby Blanchard had it all until she gets bit. Colby discovers some hidden strengths, and some unlikely allies — including Thomas, a Vampire Investigator who would be really hot if he weren't the guy most likely to. Unless he thinks we're one and the same? You know alittle light reading with some humor before I jumped into another series. Serena definitely brought an interesting twist of half-vampires.
If I could only get my best friend to believe in me before an ancient evil destroys her and her half-blood sisters, I might actually get the guy and save the world. The only thing I wish that there was more of is Thomas. I especially like the added touch of the talking demonic cats. I just think reading is awesome period. This installment is told from both Colby and Piper's the best friend perspective which I found welcome. She went from a somewhat shallow typical cheerleader to becoming the Protector of other half-bloods and she certainly grew into that role.
This is a young adult book blog, therefore I only review young adult titles. Then there's the whole fact that staking a demon leads to her discovery that she might not be the person who she thought she was. Add to it a sorority house full of Undead sisters that constantly need defending. Piper Prescott, Colby's bestie, knows this well. I just started to grasp that my best friend is a half-blood vampire, and now I'm facing demons of my own.
I liked Colby's courage and strenght even in one of the worst moments of her life. Ok so Colby is a half blood vampire or as they are most commonly referred to in this book, the Undead. The plot was like 30% of this book, the rest was Colby being shitty. Ever since I staked that demon zombie -a no brainer for someone like Colby, but seriously strange for living chicks like yours truely - Hunter's been studying me. Yet, she was the one who stuck by Colby through thick and thin and overcame her tendency to hide in the face of danger to protect Colby when it counted. There's also her love for bad boys, and the new guy she met at the mall, Hunter, who has all of the qualities she looks for and more. My guess is he had landed in a better story he might of had swoon status but no such luck.
While reading it, I sort of got the idea like it was not reviewed or rechecked before publishing. While fending off Vampire Zombies. Colby still is the worlds worse friend ever! I loved the last though, remember that! Piper finally found a guy just right for her lifestyle, but he wants her dead. I liked it, don't get me wrong. I want to learn more about their relationship! Second, how can she even walk around with that headgear? And she thought getting into college was going to be her biggest problem. That's where Piper, Colby's best friend, comes in. I might have a little crush on him, I know! I know that I should have known better but I really was hoping for funny.
