Book: Bought

"Zachariah Thomson has spent the past year getting used to the idea that his best friend, Charlie, and the lovely Luna are now vampires, like him. As they learn to cope with the changes this brings, a mysterious creature appears. Likened to the Beast of the Apocalypse, it begins to dismantle the network of support around Zack, who discovers he is more than just an orphaned vampire – he is the subject of an ancient prophecy that relates to the End of Days. As friends and enemies, old and new, throw his world into chaos, he is forced to re-examine what it means to be good at a time when it seems that only the strong and ruthless can survive."

I will go right into and say I did not enjoy this book as much as I enjoyed the first book. I found myself struggling to keep into it and I felt like it wasn't written the same as the first book. I felt like something is missing and that upset me.

Zack learns many new things about himself in this book. He is having a hard time being away from his girlfriend and dealing with the fact that he is a vampire. Zack in this book seems to confused on what he should do. In the last book he was much stronger and was good at facing unknown facts. Zack here struggles and seems more cowardly.

The love interest in the book is heart breaking. Zack is kept away from the one thing he holds most dear. I knew that Zack draws his strength from her but he seem too weak without her. I wanted Zack to stop being a pansy and grow up. I wanted him to take charge and not be afraid.

Sadly, this book ended on something I did not like and well I just don't think I will be reading the next book if there is going to be one.

I give it 3 BITES!

Happy Reading!


  1. What a shame!! I know it can be disappointing when you enjoy the first one. I am off to look at the first book!

  2. I actually really enjoyed this one :) I cannot wait for the next.. I don't even think he's started writing it yet though lol

  3. Too bad on this one Savy, I haven't read the first book in this series, but it's always disappointing when the second book doesn't appeal to you as much as the first one did. I think I'll skip this series after reading you weren't a big fan of the ending.

  4. I don't know if I've heard of this series before. Sorry you didn't like it as much. Still, love the cover.

  5. Aw... sorry you didn't enjoy this one. I may pass on this series even if you liked the first. Thanks for the honest review!

  6. It sucks when the follow up book lets you down. I have the first book waiting to be read on my shelf, hopefully I will get to soon. I have to admit the cover is what drew me to this series.

    Great honest review :)

  7. It has such an amazing cover though!!
    I def understand the 2nd book syndrome. Is there a third?
