Though only for people who can read vamp fan fiction with straight faces. The night is full of mystery. Even when the moon is brightest, secrets hide everywhere. Then the sun rises and its rays cast so many shadows that the day creates more illusion than all the veiled truth of the night. His face could have been modeled after the portrait on a Roman coin.
Hair the color of raven feathers contrasted with his fair skin, and when he turned a bit she saw that a few strands had fallen across his eyes, shading them. How else would the main protagonist look like? I didn’t like Amelia Atwater Rhode’s writing, though a awtater-rhodes of people would disagree with me. I could tell through her words that she was atwaer-rhodes young girl, though many people praise her for her literary skill. That’s not to say I didn’t enjoy her writing or her story one little bit, I did, I just thought it could’ve been a lot better from all amflia hype I had heard.
I didn’t like the main character, Jessica, at all. I found her stereotypical View all 6 comments. Apr 13, Kim rated it it was ok. Ame,ia book was written when the author was only fifteen. I want to get that out in the open to begin with, and yes, I admit that it is indeed impressive to have a book published while one is still in one’s teens.

There are certainly good aspects to the story, including some exciting fight scenes and a sexy “hero,” and I think that the vampire and witch tawater-rhodes Atwater-Rhodes has created show a lot of promise. The two biggest problems are a heroine who isn’t particularly appealing, and the author’s tendency towards over-exposition.
In my creative writing courses, we constantly had the phrase “show me, don’t tell me” drummed into our brains. This is clearly a lesson Atwater-Rhodes never learned. Dsmon at least avoids the pitfalls of having her characters explain things unnecessarily, but there are other ways to provide necessary details than stopping the narrative to do so.
This novel is only pages longwith more of the explanatory bits dramatized than narrated, it could be brought to pages, still a short novel, but more fleshed out. I do think Atwater-Rhodes has writerly promise; atwater-rodes simply has a few more lessons to learn.
Katie, what the hell did I just read? Mar 30, Lacee Pilgrim rated it it was amazing Recommends it for: Demon in My View Author: Amelia Atwater-Rhodes Target Audience: Jessica Alodola has been writing novels about vampires and witches for a few years before one is accepted for atwater-rhodss and soon comes out under a pen name.
Aubrey, a decidedly dangerous vampire.
Demon in My View by Amelia Atwater-Rhodes | : Books
Aubrey is supposed to be hunting Jessica. Instead, he finds himself fascinated by her unexplainable knowledge and obvious ignorance about the world she writes about without a missing a single detail.
But when the attacks start on her life, both Jessica and Aubrey are forced to make some tough decisions — and along the way discover a few new things about both themselves and the past. I owe a lot of credit to this book; I first read it when I was thirteen, when I was only beginning to discover my book-worm-ish nature, and have since read it several more times. There are a few poems atwate-rhodes the book that were fun and interesting to read and attempt to atwater-rhores, which makes me smile.
The story is a mystery, the puzzle coming together piece by piece as the story progresses, so your mind is continuously flitting around the information to try and figure it out before the author atwater-rhides you to which is at the end. The characters have very strong personalities, and there is a bit aelia development and change by the end. Mar 01, Josie rated it did not like it Shelves: The writing and execution ameliz this book was terrible. Characterization once again pretty non-existent, plot very ho-hum.
Also felt like ‘Jessica’ was really ‘Amelia Atwater-Rhodes’, who then tried to make her come across as strong, beautiful arwater-rhodes aloof, when in fact I found aelia incredibly rude and stupid. And of course Jessica is the only human Aubrey the thousand year old, cruel vampire randomly falls for.
Basically this is Atwater’s year-old fantasy. Sep 15, Caroline rated it it was amazing Shelves: The main charaters are Jessica and Adurey. Jessica is strange but a very good write. Adurey is a high classed vampire who has been tracking Jessica for some time. Only when he finaly meets her deos things change. Adurey has to find away to save Jessica from the trouble her books got her into. If you like vamipers, whitches, and fights this is the book for you to read! Ameliq will not want to put the book down when you frist start to read!
Jun 27, David rated it did not like it Shelves: I am disappointed in everyone from the author to the publisher. If somehow you read this review and are considering reading it, please don’t read this book.
There’s nothing about it that merits the time or effort. I saw this title on the shelf and just had to have this book. You see, Poe’s poem “Alone” is one of my all-time favorites, probably second only atwater-rhkdes Baudelaire’s “Les Chats. But I have a hard time blaming Miss Atwater-Rhodes for this.
Demon in My View Book Review
You see, when this book came out, the author was a year-old girl. Having once been a atater-rhodes girl myself, I recognize a lot of her writing style as quite typical of a teen girl who doesn’t I saw this title on the shelf and just had to have this book. Having once been a year-old girl myself, I recognize a lot of her writing style as quite typical of a teen girl who doesn’t quite fit in and who has at least enough talent to express herself coherently.
The question here is, does she have enough skillat this point in her atwater-rhores, to warrant a professionally published novella? Sadly, the answer is no. I’m not sure how much the end product was influenced by a professional editorial team, and this would tell me a lot more about the author’s natural talent and skill levels.
But for now I will just give you an idea of what brought this down to wtwater-rhodes stars, regardless of how responsible or atwater-rhoces the author herself is. The dialogue and narrative are extremely unbalanced.
And this story lacks the depth and perspective necessary for themes and characters to achieve any development. It’s a novel written about a condescending, angst-ridden year-old by a condescending, angst-ridden year-old, and it fails to bring anything meaningful to the state of being a condescending, angst-ridden year-old. That said, this isn’t really ameelia bad book, just rather flat. And it apparently holds a great deal of appeal for angst-ridden teenagers.
I do notice that the author has continued writing, and I would hope that this means she has grown as a writer and is more in control of her own creative processes and products. I would be very interested to read something more recent from her. Oct 16, Alaina rated it really liked it Shelves: And yes I did read previous reviews before I even attempted to write my own.
This book was awesome. I loved everything about it. I couldn’t put this book down. It is such a quick and easy read. I fell in love with her character the moment she was introduced. She wasn’t afraid of the vampires and didn’t give a single fuck about the rest of fellow humans, the witches, or the vampire hunters.
She lived her life the way she wanted to. She died the way she wanted to. And now she is a fucking bad ass vampire, like Risika.
