I loved this review too, by Jonathan Thurston!! for: The Vampire…In My Dreams! “The steamy, masculine vampire… the far from confident, pretty young girl… Familiar elements? Not in this thrilling novel. Terry Lee Wilde makes a stunning addition to the realm of young adult vampire literature by incorporating witches into the mix.
Marissa, an average teenage witch, lives in the shadow of her best friend (and often role model) Kate, who believes the tall, dark stranger in town is a vampire. What unfolds when the mysterious stranger falls in love with Marissa sends all three of them into a struggle against knife-wielding human test subjects, vampiric pizza delivery guys, and an ancient vampire who has a claim on our studly hero and wants Marissa dead.
Terry Lee Wilde breaks a lot of tradition with this book by putting vampires back where they belong: in the realm of mystery, seduction, masculinity (as opposed to sparkling), and dare I say a little terror.
And I loved this review by Cassandra Lost in Books: I think this is like Star Trek meets a Fae realm. It is a really cool idea. I’m wondering if there will be more of either the Elven World or of the Overseers. I will admit though as of right now I’d still want to slap the Overseers, but you will have to read or listen to see why.
Persephonice starts out kind of fragile with grief, but she becomes strong, and I really loved her as a character. She encounters so much trouble and overcomes all the stereotypes that she has been filled with out races who are full of passion.
Dracolin is a fierce warrior, and he is not sure why he is so drawn to Persephonice. There is lots of adventure and several men who need to be slapped, but it was a very enjoyable story 🙂 http://closkot.blogspot.com/2014/10/audiobook-review-shadow-elf-by-terry.html
How did it get to be Thursday already??? What happened to Wednesday?
Tile men are still here. They’re grouting today. And I’m off to work. Hope you have a lovely Thursday. I’m still wondering where my Wednesday went. Has that ever happened to you???
