Although Mahs plot is original and could make a good vampire series, other than Amy herself, the characters are standard and underdeveloped.The voice changes erratically, alerting the reader to new point of view by italics and sub-heading, and these devices make the story amateurish and difficult to follow.This doesnt detract hugely from the overall quality of the novel though, and did make me want to read the next installment.Pandora Zwieback is a perfectly normal goth/punk teenage schizophrenic.There are a large number of books based on the TV show Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Angel, I will give these books their own is the eleventh installment of Rachel Caines popular Morganville Vampires series.It picks up where book 10, Bite Club, left off, following the fate of heroine Claire Danvers as she tries to survive in a town run by vampires.I particularly enjoy the fact that Claire is defined by her intelligence, not by her attraction to vampires.
But her new work, Amy Mah: Vampire, is a departure in the wrong direction.
There is often a mix of horror and romance in vampire fiction for young adults, I will note which reviews could fall under the horror romance as well as vampire fiction.
I will note to be under the vampire fiction category there needs to be some bloodshed.
What if there is something worse than vampires out there?
One of the key strengths of Caines series has always been its heroine. While she is younger than some YA heroines, starting the series at just sixteen years old, Caines creation has proved to be one of the smartest protagonists of vampire series that I have come across.
