I didn t like Amelia Atwater Rhode s writing, though a lot of people would disagree with me I could tell through her words that she was a young girl, though many people praise her for her literary skill.That s not to say I didn t enjoy her writing or her story one little bit, I did, I just thought it could ve been a lot better from all the hype I had heard I didn t like the main character, Jessica, at all I found her stereotypical ungrateful and frankly someone that I couldn t come to like at al [...]
This book was written when the author was only fifteen I want to get that out in the open to begin with, and yes, I admit that it is indeed impressive to have a book published while one is still in one s teens That being said, I also think that when a teenage author gets published, s he must be held up to the same standards as adult authors, and by those standards, well, this book isn t particularly good There are certainly good aspects to the story, including some exciting fight scenes and a se [...]
Katie, what the hell did I just read
Title Demon in My ViewAuthor Amelia Atwater RhodesTarget Audience Young AdultPages 176Rating 7.5 10Genre Vampire RomancePerson ThirdTense PastBlurb quoted None My Summary Jessica Alodola has been writing novels about vampires and witches for a few years before one is accepted for publishing and soon comes out under a pen name.What Jessica doesn t know is that her ideas that come from her dreams are all real and the vampire s who s lives she s allowed humans to read about aren t happy about it It [...]
The writing and execution of this book was terrible Characterization once again pretty non existent, plot very ho hum Also felt like Jessica was really Amelia Atwater Rhodes , who then tried to make her come across as strong, beautiful and aloof, when in fact I found her incredibly rude and stupid And of course Jessica is the only human Aubrey the thousand year old, cruel vampire randomly falls for Basically this is Atwater s 17 year old fantasy.
As the dust jacket constantly reminds us, Atwater Rhodes wrote this gem at the age of fifteen I wrote bad fanfic at the age of fifteen, too, but at least I had the courtesy not to inflict it on other people Frankly, the only thing that surprises me about the work is that the author isn t male, as it s got a very distinct 15 year old boy in the backseat bouquet no rhythm, no poetry, and no payoff Girls, stay home and wash your hair instead.
The main charaters are Jessica and Adurey Jessica is strange but a very good write.Adurey is a high classed vampire who has been tracking Jessica for some time.Only when he finaly meets her deos things change Adurey has to find away to save Jessica from the trouble her books got her into.If you like vamipers, whitches, and fights this is the book for you to read You will not want to put the book down when you frist start to read
Random House was this worth publishing I am disappointed in everyone from the author to the publisher If somehow you read this review and are considering reading it, please don t read this book There s nothing about it that merits the time or effort.
Life is nothing without a little chaos to make it interesting I don t understand why people are throwing so much shade at this book And yes I did read previous reviews before I even attempted to write my own NEWSFLASH PEOPLE This book was awesome I loved everything about it I couldn t put this book down It is such a quick and easy read view spoiler Jessica is such a bad ass I fell in love with her character the moment she was introduced She wasn t afraid of the vampires and didn t give a single [...]
Link to my blog thatreadhead1.wordpress 2I didn t find this one as good as the first one, but it had the same amount of wow factor I didn t realise that each story followed a different character, but in the same world In terms of this book, I loved the idea that view spoiler the first book was actually a book that Jessica wrote, hide spoiler but I think I d have liked it if view spoiler the story was actually all in Jessica s head, rather than her turning out to be the daughter of Jazlyn, who w [...]
I saw this title on the shelf and just had to have this book You see, Poe s poem Alone is one of my all time favorites, probably second only to Baudelaire s Les Chats So this book had an awful lot to live up to in my mind And it didn t But I have a hard time blaming Miss Atwater Rhodes for this You see, when this book came out, the author was a 15 year old girl Having once been a 15 year old girl myself, I recognize a lot of her writing style as quite typical of a teen girl who doesn t quite fit [...]
My rating 3 1 2 out of 5 stars.Jessica Allodolla a secretly published author still attending high school as a Senior realizes suddenly, that the characters of her novel tiger, tiger are real, either that or, she is going insane.Ash Night, the pseudonym of Jessica, writes a story about her dreamed up character, the villain Aubrey But when two transfer students the sociable and affectionate Caryn and the mysteriously dark Alex draw Jessica out her social pariah status and into the cut throat ladde [...]
Interesting setup but mediocre execution Jessica is an unusual teenager because, unbeknownst to her classmates, she s the author of a recently published novel about vampires Her classmates shy away from her dark aura and her unpleasant personality until two new students arrive Caryn tries desperately to be her friend Aubrey bears a striking resemblance to one of Jessica s vampire characters and seems to be stalking her Jessica soon discovers the world she thought she created from fiction actuall [...]
This book is not something I would recommend Yes, the first book in the den of shadow series was short 176 pages yet it lacked my interest The beginning few pages were very well detailed but after that, it became basic The story line was different but not out of the realm of cliche.The main character was very annoying in my opinion worse than Bella from the twilight movies I kept reading to the end to see if it got better, but my thoughts stayed the same I do not think I would read this again in [...]
This book was simply beautiful It was, in a way, everything I felt was missing from the beautiful prequel to this novel, which was In the Forests of the Night It was, in a way, Aubrey s side of the story but of course, it isn t the same story.The prologue of this book is intriguing, and to my peril I didn t take much notice of it, dismissing it as the usual Short, dark, mysterious prologue designed to pull you in That is, of course, exactly what it was, but as a seasoned reader I should have kno [...]
I liked the elaborate world that was built here, but I did think it got a tad confusing at times It may be because I haven t read the first book in this collection, but I have no idea what a fledgeling is A child Or something Of a vampire I also got a little muddled in the first Las Noches scene What Humans know about this place Are there witches there as well Of course this is why it is so confusing to write sequels, because you know for sure that someone hehe, I m guilty will pick up the midd [...]
Demon In My View is the second book by Amelia Atwater Rhodes I also read this book in high school right after her first one Where as In the Forest of the Night was all about Risika story with Aubrey being the villain This book is all about Aubrey and Jessica, I really enjoyed this book than the first one like I did the first time I read it.Jessica Allodola is a senior in high school, but that is not what makes her special if you want to call it that She is an author of the book Tiger Tiger unde [...]
The second in the Den of Shadow s series was sub par The protagonist, Jessica, is the human author of the story we read previously, along with a few others including, later on, the one we are reading It s an interesting twist, but at the same time feels a little disjointed Eventually you find out that her mother was pregnant with her, her father died, the mother was depressed and was turned into a vampire still pregnant Eventually, a witch helped her become human again and she gave birth to the [...]
Reviewed by Me for TeensReadTooJessica Allodola, a senior at Ramsa High School, is not your average teenager Under the pen name Ash Night, Jessica has already published a vampire novel entitled TIGER, TIGER She also has a pretty mean spirit, goes mostly ignored by her fellow students, and acts mostly indignantly towards her adopted mother The problem is that with the arrival of two new students in school, Caryn and Alex, her book seems to be coming to life Caryn claims to be a witch, descended f [...]
This novel opens with a backdrop of a high school setting the protagonist is fifteen year old Jessica Allodola, who has conflicts at school, a communication problem with her single mom, a cold, I don t give a care attitude and the entrance of a mysterious sinister classmate.Nothing and no one do not seem to please her nor does she care about having or making friends at her school, particularly a new and friendly student named Caryn However, things start to take off when she meets newly enrolled [...]
I enjoyed it, but not as much as I enjoyed In the Forest of the Night, partly because I had trouble with the thought processes of the central character She slowly turned from sympathetic and interesting into something very different, and it didn t feel like a natural progression, especially given the background for her which slowly emerged I really wanted to like this book better than I did.The book itself, written by a teen author about a teen author, whose first book was clearly the real autho [...]
My book is a Thriller Horror novel, called Demon in My View by Amelia Atwater Rhodes The intended audience would be teenaged readers at both the middle and high school level I chose this particular novel because I enjoy thrillers about vampires and the title caught my eye This novel opens with a backdrop of a high school setting the protagonist is fifteen year old Jessica Allodola, who has conflicts at school, a communication problem with her single mom, a cold, I don t give a care attitude and [...]
Demon in My View is a beautifully written novel and one that I personally can identify with because the author was just fourteen I believe when she started to get her work published The story of Aubrey, this hell bent vampire, who stumbles upon a human girl and has to decide what he feels is right about letting her live or not, is a heart wrenching plot I love the perspective in the book, third person, because we re able to see into the lives of all the characters, and not just the main characte [...]
This book was terrible I have to give props that the author was only 14 and for that she was very imaginative but the characters are flat the main character is a blatant self insert of the author, a teenager who writes vampire books , the plot and logistics of the world are all over the place, and the interactions between the characters leave a lot to be desired In short, this book is worse than Twilight.
I didn t like this book at all It s very obvious that it was written by a teen I couldn t believe something so bad was published I read it a while ago so I can t be completely thorough here The biggest thing that I remember was the hostility from the main character s classmates Everyone hated her for no reason Not one explanation except that they didn t like her for some reason It was a weak story and I didn t like any of the characters.
I liked the first one, but this one made me aware of all the flaws in the writing.But I especially hated the main character in this She was clearly a self insert for the author and was the biggest Mary Sue of all time Not to mention, she was a giant biotch for no reason.I just wasn t buying Audrey falling for her for literally no reason after he was described as such a bad ass vampire in the first book.
The story was different than I was expecting, but I none the less enjoyed it I thought it was neat how this book makes the MC the author of the first book, In the Forests of the Night, and I enjoyed the comparisons with it I ll definitely be reading by this author.
An excellent book by one of my favorite authors The narration is once again cold and distant, but this time, it feels like it SHOULD be cold and distant, because it matches Jessica Both Jessica and Aubrey were very interesting, as were the various side characters that appeared The book s central mystery really makes it worth reading Quite a good book.
Another eh book Disjointed and seems like it was written by a kid almost I do think the author is young it shows Not a bad premise but if I wasn t especially busy at work and needed something easy to read after work right nowI wouldn t bother with the next one
I must say I was so excited to learn this book was about Aubry It did a wonderful job of going into greater detail about Aubry himself though I must admit I did miss Risika who was only mentioned Demon in My View will really change your view on Aubry as well as others.
