Though it was close, I didn t enjoy Midnight Predator quite as much as it s three predecessors Before I get to properly reviewing the book, there is one complaint I just have to get out of the way, before anything else Turquoise Who names their bloody main character Turquoise It s just just no I much preferred her original name, Catherine, or even her fake name Audra though even that sounds like it belongs to a Daedric Lord in Oblivion Personally I think that Turquoise should have been called Ra [...]
I think this was my favorite Atwater Rhodes book since the first, In the Forests of the Night Plenty of vampires, and lots on the complex hierarchy of the vampire world I liked it and the others for its realistic, well thought out world In a way, this one felt like there were several plots or plot threads, many of which didn t feel resolved at the end, but I still enjoyed it.
Midnight Predator In this world, there are predators and there are prey only the former survive Bruja s Motto, Midnight Predator.I forgot how much I loved this story I know I always say that when it comes to Amelia Atwater Rhodes stories, but it s true Midnight Predator follows Turquoise Draka, a vampire hunter and mercenary that gets hired to kill Jeshikah, a high ranking vampire with no regard for humans Turquoise pays Nathaniel, a friend and vampire to sell her into slavery at Midnight a club [...]
This series of books was just eh to me I m actually not sure why it s considered a series as none of them really seem related The one thing I probably like least about them is that none of them really have endings not bad but entertaining easy reads.
I really enjoyed this, but I wish it was longer The ending was too short, and could have been drawn out.
view spoiler I loved everything about Midnight Predator Turquoise Audra Catherine was a pretty impressive character with a unique background Ravyn, who also had a pretty unique upbringing, was annoying as fuck throughout the book WHY Oh because she would make her own plans all the god damn time But then again so did Turquoisert ofyberight Other annoying characters were Daryl and Jeshickah I wanted them to die so badly in this book I sort of got half of my wish granted and I m not going to tell y [...]
So far, my second least favorite volume of the Den of Shadows series, other than In the Forests of the Night.The plot wasn t great It seemed to have an interesting potential theme, but it never really went anywhere with it It s ending felt inconclusive Sure, the main plot was resolved, but Turquoise s inner choice wasn t the book just sort of cut off right after the climax There were some tense scenes in the book s first half, but they didn t really amount to much.The characterization, on the ot [...]
This was definitely better than the previous one in the series, but still not great It was enjoyable for what it was though The characters were a little interesting and complex, though I really would have liked to see the plot fleshed out , perhaps even made into a series of its own.I will forever hate the author s penchant for stupid names In this one, it seemed she was going for a color theme Our protagonist was named Turquoise, who was fighting to be the leader of Crimson, and her foe was co [...]
I d classify Midnight Predator in the so so category It s basically about a young vampire huntress named Turqoise who was hired by a witch to assassinate a strong and high ranking vampire In order to do that, she needs to be absorbed in a secret vampire fortress called Midnight Honestly, I find the story lacking in creativity and originality I can t help but think of Buffy the Vampire Slayer whenever I remember this story It s a little too predictable, and the names of the character aren t helpi [...]
Yup I did just give it a 5 5 I found the book to be what I like to call an entertaining read I ve read this book like twice and found it be good enough because it gives you a sense of satisfaction Too many books out there are leaving readers empty Anyways, this is a small novel with no sequel and so the story isn t too elaborate but it s fun to read If you like the overview, I recommend you read it at least once I believe I read this back in middle school so I can t remember much about it except [...]
THis was also good amelia atwater Rhode is awesome
2.5 5I feel like I don t have a good grasp on the vampires of this world Why is it they can be killed by humans I can believe that witches can kill them since they are stronger than humans, but human hunters should be at a massive disadvantage Once again, the world building in this story was not too great The Bruja guilds were not explained very well at all.
I picked this book up on a whim years ago and loved it Never knew that it was part of a series or connected on to other books Works really well as a stand alone Even now years down the line at points in the book I get the chills in my belly and a shiver of delight at how it is written.The characters grow as you read the book, you learn what happened to her as time goes on getting flash backs into the life before she was a Vampire Hunter, before Catherine was turned into the person she is The hea [...]
This is my favorite so far of the vampire sequence I found the world building fascinating, liked or liked to hate everyone and enjoyed the plot I wish it had been longer and spent another hundred pages fleshing out the setting and characters, but overall I enjoyed the story and liked the twists.
I love how quick it is to read through these books that being said I think I like this obe a little less then the others But I loved the sass and the characters interactions with each other I can t wait to get to the others.
This was hands down my favorite in the Den of Shadows quartet I just wish it was longer or there was a direct sequel to it, because the ending was left so open ended Besides that I think this was by far the strongest story in this series.
Save tomorrow for tomorrow Deal with now first As a series this leaves something to be desires, since none of these books are related at all They re barely even connected They re also super predictable Very short though, so easy to kill an afternoon by reading one of these.
Book club read.
Still as compulsively readable at 23 as it was at 15 A fun, quick read
So, the writer seems to have found her voice and style with this one She returns to a single POV for this book, but keeps it in 3rd person limited I found this book engaging and the characters likeable than her previous protagonists The protagonist, Turquoise, was interesting and sympathetic than previous characters That said, the plot was basically the same plot as her last two books, and though I truly liked it for the first 100 pages, I was disappointed to find it dissolved to of the same [...]
Still reading it, but from the first 40 or so pages, I can immediately tell I won t like it as much as the other Den of Shadows books or any of Amelia Atwater Rhodes s other books all of which I absolutely adore First thing I don t like this book, unlike the other three, does not have the same characters In In the Forests of the Night, Demon in My View, and Shattered Mirror most of the characters from each book all reappear as characters less significant, however in each of the other books, whic [...]
This book is okay, bordering on good depending on what mood you are in when you read it I very much enjoyed taking the piss out of this book and making fun of the characters as I read it recently Not much characterization, but what few characters do get developed are actually pretty interesting, like Jaguar I just wish she cut out most of the characters in this book to spend time on the characters that were fun She could have cut Ravyn, Gabriel, and all the side characters in New Midnight and B [...]
I sometimes forget how much I enjoy books by Amelia Atwater Rhodes After all, I loved the Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Angel series that were on TV a few years ago, never missing a single episode Suffice to say, I love tales of vampires and slayers Amelia Atwater Rhodes becomes a better and better writer with each book The characters are refined and the storyline is exciting and tense Midnight Predator is another great vampire story that has a slayer struggling to do what she longs to do kill a [...]
I ve finished In the Forests of the Night and Shattered Mirror in 2008 Demon in my View in 2009 This year, I read those three again before reading Midnight Predator, which I ve never read in my whole life It was easy reading the first three books since I already know who they are but in Midnight Predator, I have no idea who the characters are so I thought that it was going to be my least favorite book in the series That was before reading it.At first, I didn t even want to read it but I came to [...]
I am on page 80.This book is the fourth in the series, but the other books have nothing to do with this book This book is about Turquoise who is a mercinary who is fighting a girl named Ravyn to advance to the highest position in the Bruja organization.The highest title Crimson is give to the person who defeated the top fighters in Bruja The fight leads to a tie and they call a rematch, but Ravyn gets to choose the weapon Ravyn chose the whip which is unfortunatly Turquoise s least favorite weap [...]
I quite enjoyed reading Midnight Predator even if it did take me a long time to finally finish it.I thought the characters were all quite interesting Especially Jaguar who I think I d read about in a previous Den of Shadows book There was also another character that I remember reading about but I m not sure if it s the same person or which book it was in I wish I was able to read the series closer together so I could ve remembered properly.The plot itself was an interesting one, my only problem [...]
I m giving this such a high rating because, back when I read this in junior high high school can t honestly remember , I loved ALL of the Rhodes books and read each of the Den of Shadows books two times at the very least But I have to say that MP commits some of the worst writing cliches that I personally despise The names KILL me in this book I rather snobbishly really have a not so small list of things I can t tolerate in books and unnecessary spellings are chief offenders when there is litera [...]
The book, Midnight Predator, written by Amelia Atwater Rhodes is about an adolescent Vampire Hunter who goes into a slave complex under cover as a human slave Her job is to successfully kill one of it s evil owners However, a conflict comes along when she falls in love with her owner As she falls deeper for him, many other conflicts arise The main character, Turquoise, doesn t expect any of this to happen She was trained to lock on her target and kill but now, she has to have patients Something [...]
I remember reading this book in Jr High and falling in love with it I didn t understand how it could possibly be in a series since none of the other books connect in anyway except vampire related but that didn t stop me from reading the other books of this series.Saw this on my shelf and thought I would rekindle my love for it But I learned a whole lot from reading this novel after so many years.1 it is incredibly short book2 this is a pathetic excuse of a story it should have been labeled as a [...]
Midnight Predator should have and could have been better The idea was interesting and the writing was simple yet engaging Turquoise is a assassin hired to kill a very bad vampire In order to gain access to her, she has to return to Midnight, a place where vampires live with their human pets, which she once was.My main issue with this book seems frivolous The character names border on ridiculous Turquoise, Jeshikah, Ravyn, Jaguar Reading these names is distracting In my head, Jeshikah sounds like [...]
