You kept me intrigued and made it hard to put down, I want more please. Feb 28, Sigita rated it really liked it. What can i say?! Yes,I was gone on a bender all things twilight go on -unfriend me,see if I care! I couldn't believe how many of very popular books originally were twilight fanfic! I read all three books in CoH series and I liked them!
If you don't care about twilight ,it is still good paranormal romance. Oct 02, Vagabonda Reads rated it really liked it.

One I could successfully pass — like other challenges over the course of my lifetime. Together we were electric. And as the story progresses, the UST levels start to chart dangerously between the vampire and his lady love. Book One does end with a minor cliffie, mitigated somewhat by an epilogue — conceivably it stands alone, but Creature of Habit is so compelling, reading Book Two is a must.

I really don't know how this author got away with publishing this without infringing on Stephanie Meyer's copyrights. Only a few chapters in and I couldn't help but think that this was exactly like Twilight, with a few minor tweaks. Sure enough after a quick internet search I found this was a Twilight fan fiction that the author had published. For this reason I cannot give this book a rating higher than a three, because the majority of its concept was stolen from another author. That being said, I really don't know how this author got away with publishing this without infringing on Stephanie Meyer's copyrights.
That being said, if you liked Twilight, you'll like this. Dec 21, Helena Jane rated it really liked it. Great storyline. Needs editing Example: 'Drew leaned back on her palms, his legs crossed. Though not truly relevant to the story, it is a bit distracting. Dec 04, Heidi rated it it was amazing Shelves: A strong-willed young woman, an OCD social awkward vampire, and unsolved crimes in which young women are being abducted makes this a great read!

Very similar to the original fanfic but still very readable. For my taste there were to many similarities to the Cullen family to make it original fiction though. Sep 01, Fanny rated it did not like it. Another Twilight fic published.

Will this ever end? Oct 09, M. Arzu rated it it was ok. I read the original fanfiction it was based on, which I absolutely loved, so I was very happy to get back into this world and see what the novel treatment had done with it. The best part was that I still love Amelia. Love her voice, her inner thoughts, her ways of dealing with Mr. But then again, Amelia was already her own character in the fanfic, so that was easy to transition to. The worst part was that Mr. Grant was left without backstory. It worked in fanfiction world because all the background was already there, we knew where he was coming from.
We knew him, period. But Grant's past was left in a black void, so he just doesn't make sense. He's not likeable, he's not more than one dimensional. We're supposed to cheer for him because So, can he read minds or can't he? Then Jasper and Alice are still Jasper and Alice, and I just couldn't continue any further to see what the rest of the family had been turned into. I wish we had spent a lot more time knowing Grant. Why he was so reclusive, why did he declare himself a savior.
He's just there. Halfway through we're not even given a reason why Amelia's scent was so appealing to him--unless we go back to fanfic land, but this is not the fanfic, this is a novel. Best of luck to the author, because I was truly bewitched once with this tale. But now it needs to really stand on its own.
Jul 25, Jen rated it liked it. This was my first read from Ms. Lawson, it grabbed my attention right away. It was well written and the characters were well developed amazingly. As I spent my day relaxing by the pool and reading this book and staying up way too late into the night to finish it in one day. I was very frustrated that it wasn't going to end in one book, I don't mind second books in a series but I feel when you invest so much time into a book you should be able to at least be able to wrap up the story line, we don This was my first read from Ms.
I was very frustrated that it wasn't going to end in one book, I don't mind second books in a series but I feel when you invest so much time into a book you should be able to at least be able to wrap up the story line, we don't even know anything about the fate of these characters by the end of this book. This makes me soo sad! So as much as I like this book im only going to give it a 3 heart review since I could be satisfied with the end results.
Jan 09, La'Tanya rated it did not like it. This story took to long to get nowhere. Reading this story was like watching paint dry. The main characters had absolutely no chemistry. The plot was okay. It didn't get any better for me. I will not continue reading this series. Mar 17, Lisa P rated it really liked it. Batman, Angel, and then there's Grant I was drawn in by the blurb for the book and was not disappointed. This book is the last in A Series of Unfortunate Events, and even if you braved the previous twelve volumes, you probably can't stand such unpleasantries as a fearsome storm, a suspicious beverage, a herd of wild sheep, an enormous bird cage, and a truly haunting secret about the Baudelaire parents.
It has been my solemn occupation to complete the history of the Baudelaire orphans, and at last, I am finished. The Baudelaires are forced to listen to Count Olaf brag about how he has triumphed, how successful he is, and how rich he will be with his hands almost on the Baudelaire fortune. Olaf orders the Baudelaires to sail to the nearest luxury car dealership, which they know is ridiculous because they are stranded in the middle of the ocean. After a storm, the Baudelaires are welcomed on an island by a girl named Friday Caliban , while Count Olaf is shunned. The island facilitator, Ishmael , introduces the Baudelaires to the Islanders and their customs.
Although Ishmael He prefers Ish always tells the islanders "I won't force you," it soon becomes apparent that his decisions go largely unquestioned and his suggestions are obeyed like orders. Ishmael is chair-ridden and claims his feet are injured. After the Baudelaires introduce themselves, Friday suggests a toast to the Baudelaires which her mother, Miranda Caliban , agrees to. Ishmael says, "Let's drink a toast to the Baudelaire orphans!
They toast with the coconut cordial which everybody carries, but which the Baudelaires dislike. Ishmael repeatedly keeps offering the cordial to the Baudelaires, despite that they repeatedly decline because they think it tastes strange. Kit Snicket on a "Vaporetto of Favorite Detritus" a raft made of one's favorite things. After another storm, more objects wash up including a giant pile of books tied together in the shape of a cube, an unconscious and pregnant Kit Snicket , and the Incredibly Deadly Viper from Uncle Monty 's collection.
The island people arrive and Count Olaf tries to fool them with a bad Kit Snicket disguise with the diving helmet containing the Medusoid Mycelium tucked under his dress as his supposed baby. Strangely, the islanders immediately see through Olaf's flimsy disguise and cage him. The Islanders then debate whether the Baudelaires should be expelled from the colony when Count Olaf yells out from the cage that they are carrying banned items in their pockets.
Ishmael decides that the children, Kit, and Olaf should all be abandoned unless they agree to abide by the colony's rules. After everyone leaves, Olaf tries to tempt the children to let him out of the cage by promising to explain the many mysteries and secrets which they have been surrounded by since The Bad Beginning , but they ignore him. That night, two of the islanders Finn and Erewhon sneak out to feed the children and ask them a favor. A group of discontented colonists are planning a mutiny against Ishmael in the morning because they are annoyed by his all of his rules.
They ask the Baudelaires to go over to the arboretum where all the contraband items are collected and find or make some weapons to use in the rebellion. Further, the mutineers refuse to help Kit unless the Baudelaires help them. The children agree and set off for the arboretum. The Baudelaires discover a well-appointed living area before they are discovered by Ishmael.
They learn that their parents were once the island's leaders and were responsible for many improvements meant to make island-life easier and more pleasant, but they were eventually overthrown by Ishmael, who believed that a strictly-enforced simple life combined with the opiate of the coconut cordial was the best way to avoid conflict. The Baudelaires find an enormous history of the island, a commonplace book entitled A Series of Unfortunate Events , written by the many different people who had served as island leaders, including their parents and Ishmael.
Ishmael also makes references to many other people, including a girl with only one eyebrow and ear the mother of Isaac Anwhistle and Gregor Anwhistle. The Baudelaires and Ishmael go back to the other side of the island, where the mutiny is already underway. Count Olaf returns, still in disguise.
