Rating: You Gotta to Read
Reviewed by: Jennifer
People say bad things about Dianne's parents that just aren't true; they're a vampire and werewolf...so?
It's hard enough for Dianne to be fifteen and obviously to love her parents, even worse when there's something weird about them no one quite understands. Her father being a vampire and her mother being a werewolf is a simple fact of life. More worrisome are Mom and Dad getting sick for unknown reasons, the effect an accidental display of power is having on her social life, and the possibility that the boy next door thinks she's a freak. Matthew seems to like her, yet there's something off about him. Dr. Nat Silver, a vampire with several medical degrees, may provide some answers. For the most part Dianne feels it's her wit and devotion versus a world more cruel than any supernatural being could ever be.
One of the main reasons I gave this book a top rating is because Ms. Haymond took subjects; vampires, werewolves and shape-shifters and changed the norms for them. In this story they can actually get sick and die. I love paranormal stories, and I enjoyed having a different perspective. A more humanistic story. Dianne is the main character and she is going through a change of her own along with dealing with her parents illness. I also liked how Ms. Haymond ties in all the characters at the end, giving a good ending if you stop with this one, but leaving it wide open for pulling you into reading future books in this series. The other reason I gave this a high rating, is simple, I wanted to immediately buy the 1st in the series to read. I think that's a sign of a good story for me.
