One of the things I really enjoyed about this particular vampire story was that it could be look at in more than one way. As someone that has been immersed in biology classes for the first few years of college, I saw it not only from an imaginary stand point but I scientific stand point. As we all know, rather it’s in your beliefs or not, a main part of biology is evolution so I have had to read about the theory so many times I could talk about it in my sleep. But it also makes a really good idea for a fantasy story as well I had just never thought about it that way until now. Vampires could be considered more advanced humans. They become the number one predator. Then, vaempires become more advanced vampires.
I also found this vampire story much more relatable than say the Twilight series or The Vampire Diaries books. We live in a world today where quite frankly way could be upon us at any given time. While war is something that we do not live on a daily basis, it’s not as farfetched as sparkling vampires. By adding real life aspects to this story I found it to be much more relatable than some of the other vampire books out there.
I also really liked the fact that we got to see the view points of both Daniel and Cassie and the fact that it was vampires’ meets dystopian, which isn’t something that you find every day. Plus the ending was killer! I cannot wait to find out what happens in the next installment.
