Confessions of a Bookworm

My Heart is Within You - Marguerite Labbe Let me start by saying this is not a perfect book. The pacing feels too fast at the beginning (and through the relationship between Kristair and Jacob as well, although I very much enjoyed their relationship in spite of that), and certain plot points (and ancient vampire powers) feel a little too convenient. There's a fair bit of repetition to the characters' thoughts, and there are moments when Jacob's accent drove me absolutely batty. Yet even still, I found myself completely engrossed. I also thoroughly enjoyed a fresh take on the world of vampires, and the lore here was very different than anything I've read in the past. It also wasn't overdone at all, and I like the hints of vampiric history were presented with. I had trouble putting the book down once I hit the halfway point, and now that I've finished, I'm already itching like mad to get my hands on the next one in the trilogy. So, make of that what you will. ;)
