Book Impressions - Devil Inside by Brandy Issacs
Devil Inside is a vampire story with a difference. In some ways it follows the modern trend for lots of sex, but it does at least keep the violence in there as well. The vampire legend is a little different in this story and works well in the world that it creates.
The main downer for me was the main character, I found her hard to empathise with, but she did do what was needed to keep the story going. In many ways she felt shallow and not enough was done with the duality of her condition. Still the story works well for the most part and the writing itself is pretty good, although could have done with a few more tweaks..
Overall it's an entertaining book and if you enjoy your vampires then this is well worth a read. It also sets up what I assume to be a series nicely.
"For every light there is a dark."
