Not saying I was liking it BEFORE the obvious errors. 17-year old who isn’t afraid of the monsters (this time vampires) while everyone else is MC has an ill-defined power The monsters "stay away" from MC - so therefore, she tells no one MC doesn’t have a sexual spark for the “nice guy” who keeps touching her and calling her names she hates but does she tell him she doesn't feel the same way? Nooooooo! Let's lead the guy on indefinitely! MC doesn’t tell her “friends” anything that’s going on in her life MC says horrible things about said “friends” in her head Why does she have friends again? Oh, right to talk about the love interest when he appears (didn't get to him, but I can see he appears) MC does a bunch of stuff for random mid-50’s father figure MC insists she wants to defy generic authority just for shits and giggles (with the highly original name of "Highers") Said father figure has hands shaky with age, but he's only in his mid-50's - both my parents are that age and neither have age shakes in their hands. TOTALLY original. NOT.

I would have rated this four stars, except there were so many spelling mistakes, grammatical errors and general issues within the text that should have been spotted before being published. If this was more polished, it would be a solid four stars from me. That said, I had fun with this and will be continuing on with the series as I need more. Think of this as a guilty pleasure read, taking you back to the good old days of paranormal YA and you’ll be sure to love this too.

    I really wanted to love this book because the premise sounded great, but I honestly have no idea what the hell was happening throughout most of the book. The writing was erratic and I had a hard time following the action scenes, or pretty much anything for that matter. Even the characters were all over the place, freaking out one moment, getting along the next or suddenly kissing, fighting or trying to escape something I didn't even realize was in the scene in the first place.

Even the characters were all over the place, freaking out one moment, getting along the next or suddenly kissing, fighting or trying to escape something I didn't even realize was in the scene in the first place. It left me feeling frustrated and confused, two things I don't like being throughout an entire book. I don't mind starting a book confused but by the end I should be able to put some of the pieces together but by the last page of this book I was still like WTF? The character development did not work for me either. I guess I understand why Kayla was not instantly in love with Aiden was because she didn't remember him, but I felt their relationship was just not flushed out enough for me to believe that they should have actual feelings for each other. Plus the two of them couldn't stop lying to each other. I don't think Kayla told Aiden one true thing till maybe the very last chapter, while Aiden kept telling her he was going to tell her the whole truth and then would leave things out. He must have said "Okay, don't get mad at me" more than anything in this book. I ended up not liking him and in the end was totally okay with the action she takes in the final chapter. But it wasn't just Aiden I couldn't connect with, I just didn't like Kayla. For the first 1/3 of the book she acted like a crazy person. Wanting answers and then suddenly running away and punching people in the face only to turn around and ask how they got the bruise on their face. I was like, girlfriend, you JUST knocked him out. You can't be that stupid. And don't even get me started on the beginning of the book. I still have absolutely NO idea what the hell was going on and after finishing the book it didn't seem that what happened had anything to do with the story at all. Overall I was pretty disappointed in this book. I might check out the second book but I have so much on my reading list that knowing me I'll forget about this series completely since it really wasn't what I was hoping it would be. Oh and a side note, the cover has her wielding a wicked sword which is what caused me to notice the book in the first place but sadly all she rocks is a little hand knife. Not impressed.

So I bought an Ebook copy from Amazon for 3 dollars/130 pesos. I have no idea who Jessica Sorensen is. All I know is that, how blind am I? How come I don’t know this author? This book is impressive! I couldn’t put it down. It is full of action and romance. I was completely blown away. Rule #1—Never go out after dark. Rule #2—Always carry a weapon. Rule #3—No matter what, never EVER get bit. Like all dystopian stories, Kayla’s world is run by a Higher, a powerful race that governs them. They live in a city that is protected against the rabid vampires. As a bellator, she is expected to be perfect and obedient. Her job is to protect her people, to obey orders and to retrieve whatever the higher wants. The story took a great turn when she begins to question her loyalty to the Higher. She disobeyed them and was put into The Gathering, where no one survives. What is that purple liquid that was given to her every now and then? Those bloods on her dreams? What’s behind that red door? I don't post spoilers so you have to grab this book to find out. As for the world building, it is astonishing! They way the author made a distinct differences among 3 species, (Humans, Vampires and Highers ) was impressive and very unique. I like how the vamps and the higher were human once and had lost it because of the virus. The way the story depicts hope, despite the ruined world, and Kayla and Aiden looking for a cure in order to save humanity. It was made for action lovers. I feel like I was with them the whole time of their journey. I was hooked! I wanted answers about who/what Kayla really is. I also like the writing style of the author, it is fast-paced, light and enjoyable. They way she keeps the readers behind the curtains then suddenly thrown into a pit of ragging revelations, put me on the edge of my seat. There were some grammatical errors though, but I didn’t mind any of it. The characters were believable and vibrant. They have their own uniqueness. Kayla is a strong protagonist. She is brave, talented and caring. She cares so much for Monarch and Maci. Her ability to sense fear and heartbeats made her a kick-ass heroine. Aiden is a lovable character. Well, because he is so hot! The way he looks out for Kayla and his dedication to stand by her, melts my heart. The side characters were great too, Bernard, Greyson, and Ryder. Overall, I enjoyed Darkness Falls! I recommend this book to post-apocalyptic and dystopian lovers. A book full of action, adventure with a hint of romance. I would keep an eye on this series.

    Intriguing enough story...but not without pitfalls. **POTENTIAL PLOT SPOILERS** #1: Get an editor. The amount of punctuation, spelling and incorrect word choice (passed vs. past for example) are just unreal for a book and it is distracting. #2: Character development. Other than the main character, Kayla, there is very little character development. They speak of Dominic, who we are supposed to dislike. We only meet him once and everything else we're supposed to hold against him is hearsay. #3: Plot Intriguing enough story...but not without pitfalls. **POTENTIAL PLOT SPOILERS** #1: Get an editor.

Numerous plot holes throughout the book, too many to mention. #4: The conflict resolution in this book is ridiculous. A major issues presents itself and within a paragraph either there is some "memory" or a new truth revealed that fixes everything. Seems like a bit of a cop-out. #5: The amount of lying. I get that this trait of lying was instilled in them, but it gets very difficult for the reader to stand. I found myself questioning almost every word that came out of Aiden's mouth because he would contradict himself or something he lied about would surface. All honesty I feel like the book should have been longer or longer and cut in half. I feel like the plot idea is good, but really needed some more substance and time added in. I will probably read the 2nd one out of sheer curiosity of what happens.

    A very good read. If you liked any of the other books written by Jessica Sorensen(which I LOVED), then you will be pleased with Darkness Falls, also. It is a vampire story, but not like some of the stories these days. The vamps were actually human, before the horrid virus hit, then turned people into flesh eating, blood spewing monsters. The ones that were not hit with this virus are being "protected" in a secured city by the Highers, whom are not very nice and get rid of anyone they do not like A very good read.

The ones that were not hit with this virus are being "protected" in a secured city by the Highers, whom are not very nice and get rid of anyone they do not like, or that disobeys them. It is up to the main character in the story, Kayla, to get the world back to the way it was before the virus hit. She has special "powers" that let her do things that other humans can not, which terrifies everyone, but is the key to saving the world. This is an amazing story of a girl who doesn't really know her true identity, forgets things that can help her and people she once knew, and tries her hardest to protect those she cares about, and is trying to save the rest of the world... before it's too late.

    I have previously read Jessica Sorensen's Fallen Star series and enjoyed it so I decided to give her latest work a try. Boy, am I glad I did!!! Darkness Falls is fantastic, eclipsing even the Fallen Star books. It's the kind of story that makes you scratch your head and keeps you going for 'just one more page' trying to figure out what the heck is going on, but at the same time it gives you answers quickly enough that you won't be missing hair by the end.

I <3 Aiden. That's all I really have to say about that. The only good thing about having put off this book until now is that the sequel, Darkness Breaks, comes out soon so I won't have to wait to long . . . once again saving me some hair :) I would definitely recommend this read to anyone interested in the paranormal, action, and maybe a little budding romance. And don't forget . . . never EVER get bitten!

In the end, I just couldn't put the book down until it was finished. I'm going to give Darkness Falls by Jessica Sorensen a 5 star rating and I recommend you check this author and her books.

Kayla is a Bellator for The Colony, meaning: She goes out and scavenges whatever is needed. Of course the Colony's leaders are oppressive, dictatorial, people die for no reason, yadda-yadda. The usual. And when Kayla gets thrown out of the Colony (During The Capitalized Gathering), she takes on the task of saving mankind. So, yes, Sorensen didn't reinvent the wheel with this book, but that could've been fine. Could have. If she hadn't fucked up pretty much everything else. First of: The lack of editing. There is no goddamn excuse for orthography this bad, not when you're supposed to be a writer. It wasn't even all the typos that kept annoying me to no end, it was the lousy punctuation. How the hell can you fuck up so bad in your own native language? That's just embarrassing. English isn't even my mother tongue and I noticed more errors than I could possibly make myself! Second: Infuriating "storytelling". Everything that was supposed to sustain suspense only ended up aggravating me. The reason anything and everything happened when shit hit the fan was because some idiot (aka: the protagonist's first love interest, Aiden) lied about something. Throwing bits and pieces of information at the reader to keep him curious is fine, but constantly pulling shit out of your ass without ever resolving it is annoying. That doesn't keep me on the edge of my seat, it makes me want to slap you in the face. There's the difference. Third: The characters were bland, and there's really not much more to say about that. When they weren't bland (like Kayla, our generic heroine, whose motives for doing anything are "because XY told me to!" - aside from the fact that she's supposed to be a strong-willed character), they were obnoxious. There was nothing remotely likable about Aiden. He was supposed to be the guy who wanted Kayla to make her own decisions, but kept making them for her, because of his twu luv!!11 for her, and of course every girl needs a dumb, stubborn dickhead to do that. And last, but not least: Plotholes, or at least stupid inconsistencies that could've been avoided easily. First The Colony is underground, but then Kayla mysteriously does something while the sun's shining. The aforementioned character inconsistencies. And so on. This book reads like it was lazily written and lacks pretty much everything a good book should have. On the other hand, it's probably nice for someone who really doesn't give a fuck about any of this and just needs a YA-Fantasy-Romance-fix. I do like an easy read when I crave some literary fastfood, but just because it's fastfood it doesn't have to be that bad.

    Jessica Sorensen has done it yet again, she has blown me away with yet another series! I really love Jessica's Fallen Star Series, and while waiting for that next book, I read this one, and loved it. I think this book is totally unique, has a different spin on the usual vampire books. I was pleasantly surprised, which i should not have been, as i love Jessica's writing. DARKNESS FALLS: When the disease spread through the world, people had no choice but to go into hiding.

Seventeen-year-old Kayla is a Bellator, a warrior that protects The Colony. In order to survive, there are three rules she must follow: Rule #1--Never go out after dark. Rule #2--Always carry a weapon. Rule #3--No matter what, never EVER get bit. But what happens when the rules Kayla has always lived by can no longer apply? I highly recommend this book, especially if you have read and liked her other books,The Fallen Star, The Underworld, The Vision, The Promise.

A. stereotypical 'heroine' who needs a man (teenage boy) to tell her what to do/think/feel. This has become a current and regrettably ever so popular trend in the Y. A. Dystopian genre. I was more then frustrated with the number of times the author fell onto the 'You don't know? You should know. You should remember by now or, someone should have already told you. I promise I will tell you but not right now, later. You can trust me.' Then of course they never get around to telling her, and they end up betraying her (repeatedly). Yet Somehow it is all ok in the next chapter. Really? You call that suspense? I found it annoying. Also what I did not enjoy about the book was the way the author 'borrows' from other books or movies. Without giving too much away I will say, (view spoiler)[ you know in the movie the Matrix , the red pill (remember everything) the blue pill (forget). Yeah the author 'borrowed' that heavily. Except it was a syringe of white fluid vs one of purple fluid. (hide spoiler)] Now I feel it is ok to gently 'borrow' a storyline, provided you have your own take on how the plot and characters should be. But I do not feel it is OK to 'borrow' a scene from someone else's work. If the author could not find a way to give Kayla and the others a way to choose to remember or forget without so heavily 'borrowing' then she should have skipped that all together. I will not be continuing on in this series. However I am sure there are readers who might like this series like those who enjoy the YA Dystopian teen-romance genre.

I still don't know what she is exactly (yes, i admit that I am very confused) but she's definitely good at killing vampires. The only catch is that she can walk among them.. it's like she's immune or something. They're afraid of her, thus, the kickass attitude. The only problem is that she constantly lies about anything that she wants to keep hidden. I hated this. Her head is just full of lies that i couldn't keep up. Can't say i blame her though since her childhood is one hell of a blank and because she has a big amount of memory gap. Her sort-of-love-interest, Aiden, is also a liar. He always says that his lies were meant to protect Kayla. Whatever. I still feel that they had more lies than truth here. The ending was of course, meant to make readers want to have the next book right away... which in my case, is a success. Even with all the lies, the plot of Darkness Falls is definitely awesome so I will definitely read the next one.

She asks a question and the answer is "you'll find out soon enough", "you'll see", "let's hope you never find out". So overall I'm not satisfied with this read.

One day, Kayla is selected for "the gathering" and wakes up in a body bag outside the city with two other people, including a very creepy little girl. I had so many questions the entire time I was reading Darkness Falls. This world just makes absolutely no sense to me. Kayla is clearly something more than human, but is she part vampire, part Higher, something else? What exactly is a Higher? Then there's the fact that Kayla doesn't know what bruises, kissing, time, or angels are. No one can read, since books were destroyed when the virus appeared. But what do books have to do with vampires? And this is only 19 years into the future, so surely there are people who can read and can teach the youngsters now. Apparently not. It just seems like too much change in too little time, and there are lots of holes. Another major problem I had with Darkness Falls was the lack of answers about anything and how conversations just went in circles. Kayla has no memories of pretty much her entire life, but she's told she can get them back. She also meets Aiden, who she knew from before, but he refuses to tell her anything, because she needs to figure it out on her own. When he does offer up information he keeps asking if she's sure she wants to know, or that he'll explain it all to her later. A later that never comes. Then when someone is finally going to do some accelerated memory retrieval, Aiden stops that because Kayla needs to remember naturally. Why does it matter how her memories return?! She (and we) needs to know what's happened to her! It was a lot of push and pull for nothing. Darkness Falls was just weird for me. I love this premise, but I don't think it was executed well. The world building is incomplete, and the narration is quite jumpy in the beginning since Kayla is constantly blacking out. We don't get any answers, and frankly, by the end, I didn't really care anymore. Read more of my reviews at Pinkindle Reads & Reviews.

In order to survive, Title: Darkness Falls Author: Jessica Sorensen Number of Pages: 281 Date of Release: March 16th, 2012 Summary From Goodreads: When the disease spread through the world, people had no choice but to go into hiding. The Colony is hidden deep underground, far away from the vampires—humans that were transformed by the disease. The vampires are hideous, starving, and they will kill any human they come across. Seventeen-year-old Kayla is a Bellator, a warrior that protects The Colony. In order to survive, there are three rules she must follow: Rule #1—Never go out after dark. Rule #2—Always carry a weapon. Rule #3—No matter what, never EVER get bit. But what happens when the rules Kayla has always lived by can no longer apply? The Highers run The Colony and accept nothing less than perfection. One slip up can mean death. Kayla has always worked hard to follow the rules and strive for perfection. But during a moment of weakness, she lets her imperfections show. Her punishment is worse than death. She is chosen for The Gathering and is thrown out into a world full of starving vampires. No one has ever survived The Gathering, at least that’s what Kayla’s been told. But when she runs into a group who insist they were once part of The Gathering, Kayla discovers the Highers have been keeping secrets. Secrets that could lead to a cure. Review: I will read anything Jessica Sorensen ever rights! She can right about cockroaches and I will read it! AND I hate anything creepy crawly. She is just that good. This new series could be compare with Julie Kagawa’s The Immortal Rules, which I read after this one because of the dystopian +vampires./zombie/infection elements. Darkness Falls is a riveting new novel, that is bound to be an even more thrilling series! Kayla has no memory of her past only a brief image being saved and a little boys eyes when she was very young. She feels like she knows that boy, and the his eyes haunt her dreams. Whenever she asks questions Kayla gets in trouble. When she questions the leaders of The Colony, The Highers, she is taken to the red door. Which is has huge significance in the rest of the novel. Minor characters made me wary until I grew to trust them and when I did they had my heart. If you are a fan of dystopians and are familiar with Jessica Sorensen’s Fallen Star series you will love this novel. There are similar characteristics between the main characters in both series. Also the action is fast paced and you are left questioning everything. Definitely a novel you should get now!!

I fell into Kayla’s world easily and after the first few chapters it was easy to grasp the backstory and understand just what Kayla’s world was about. This book shows an apocalyptic future filled with vampires that were created as a result of something humans did but the most intriguing thing is that no one seems to remember life before the virus spread, except Kayla. Just one memory, but it’s enough to keep her asking questions. I was completely blown away by this book because it has kept me confused and intrigued, I still can’t figure out how everything fits together or even who Kayla really is and that’s how I know I loved it. Being able to see the end of a story a mile away is something that constantly irritates me because I want to feel shocked and surprised by a character and their decisions. Jessica has achieved this flawlessly because Kayla herself doesn’t even know who she really is or what she wants. The gaps in her memories creates gaps in the story that make it impossible for me to fill, I can’t guess what’s going to happen because I don’t have all the information and that makes this a gripping read. My favourite element of this book is that it’s not a love story; it’s a story about a girl struggling to figure out who she really is and what role she plays in the world, much like the rest of us. Love does come into the story pretty early on but not in the way I was expecting and it never becomes the focus of the book, it is something that so far has been kept to the side and only mentioned where necessary and that’s because Kayla doesn’t really understand love or any of her feelings in general and this is something else that makes it impossible to know which direction she’s going to take. I couldn’t have guessed that this story would take the direction it did and I was genuinely surprised to find that it is not a story that focuses solely on the supernatural but a story that combines magic and science to an extent. I am looking forward to seeing where this story leads and what’s in store for the next book it has already become one of my favourites.

But all I've got was a poorly written, frustrating mess. It's a mess from the very beginning. The plot is a mess, the characters are horrible, the conversations are stupid, the fighting scenes aren't elaborated (well, any of the other scenes, either), not to mention some chapters are barely more than a few paragraphs. Seriously?? There are so many secrets, so many lies. I guess the way of revealing things was supposed to be making the excitement-level higher, but to be honest, it just makes everything so forced and fake... and extremely annoying. It feels like the author tries way too hard to make this story seem more interesting than it is, and failing pathetically. To be honest, I don't even understand how or why I finished it, what made me keep reading, as I started considering DNF-ing it when I was about Chapter 5. This first book of the trilogy was more than enough struggle for me, I won't put up with this anymore; I won't read the sequels. Thanks but no thanks.

In the beginning I found it hard to get into the book, too many gaps and things not explained, allthough I do now apreicate this is explained later in the book, at the time it was off putting and made it difficult to read and understand exactly what was going on. That said though, once the storyline got going I was hooked and read it all in a relatively short time span. One of the particular things that bothered me were the errors within in the book. In chapter one, a character has brown eyes, in the next she is now described as having green eyes. There were typos and punctuation errors, and frankly if I'm forking out cash for a book, I expect better than that. I know I'm not perfect, but hey, you don't find people paying money to read what I've written.

    This book was not as good as I expected it to be. It was convoluted and the main character was such a complainer. I got so tired of Aiden's "honey" eyes (seriously, every time she mentioned his eyes she had to use "honey" with it. I got it already, give it a rest). I love how every guy just seems to make her melt, except for the dude that actually liked her back and seemed like a nice guy in the Colony.

It was so overdone how either when Aiden or Sylas kissed her their lips were sweet and she wilted like the little flower she is. Come on, you don't even know these dudes and have no memories. They can't make you wilt - they're not Brad freaking Pitt. Oh and the black-outs. I swear, it was like EVERY Chapter ended with "and then the world went dark and I wake up in a room..." good fucking lord.

    I assume this was free or cheap since it's on my kindle, thank God. It wasn't completely horrible, but it was still pretty bad. Firstly, you learn almost nothing about this world or Juniper/ Kayla, just annoying snippets. There are so many varieties of vampires or whatever here. I don't get any of them and I don't want to after this book. The characters, especially the males, are vapid, lying dicks (wow, did I really use that word in a review? I try to keep it clean, oh well!) Seriously, Kayla or I assume this was free or cheap since it's on my kindle, thank God. It wasn't completely horrible, but it was still pretty bad.

Seriously, Kayla or whoever you are, even if you turn out to be a vampire cyborg with red eyes and likes warm hugs you don't need a single one of these male characters in your life. Hate every single one of them. There are spelling mistakes too, I suppose I should expect that with a freebie. Not for me, not recommended.

    I was a Jessica Sorensen fan from her Falling Star series, so when I found out she was releasing a new series, it immediately went in my "Have To Read" pile. The premise of this book is completely different from The Falling Star, so I was not really sure what to expect. I was blown away by this story. Yes, in some ways you have the typical, it is the future and the world is a mess stuff, but add to that vampires, humans, day walkers, and highers and you have something that can only be described I was a Jessica Sorensen fan from her Falling Star series, so when I found out she was releasing a new series, it immediately went in my "Have To Read" pile.

Yes, in some ways you have the typical, it is the future and the world is a mess stuff, but add to that vampires, humans, day walkers, and highers and you have something that can only be described as, "Wow". Here are some things I liked about this book: *Kayla is a kick butt, intelligent, confident, and very interesting heroine. You like and respect her from the beginning. She never falls in to the "poor me" or "why oh why" type mentalities you often see in YA literature. *In no way is this your typical vampire story. I love vampire stories, but sometimes they can get repetitive. There is nothing about these vamps that sparkle or make you want them to appear in a love story as the love interest. *The story flows and deepens in a way that I believe would appeal to adults as well as the typical YA age group. I really enjoyed the way the mystery of the world Kayla is in is unwoven. *The special abilities that some of the characters had were not your typical abilities. Yes, you had the person who sees the future, but you also have magical kisses, someone who can alter your emotions, someone who can unlock you past, and many other talents. *It is clear from the first chapter that Jessica knows where she is going with this series. I have no idea where that is, but I can tell by the details she uses throughout that it is going to be somewhere great! *I could not put this book down. I just had to keep reading, "just one more chapter". The only problem I have with this series is that I have to wait until the next one comes out. I want it now. Actually, I wanted it yesterday when I finished the book. I will definitely be reading the next book on release day!!!! This book went straight to my Favorite list :)!

So, this book takes 4.5 stars because I enjoy it and not because it has been given to me by the author! “Darkness Falls” is a very fast-paced book with a lot of characters in it. Although the plot is great, I have to admit that I would love more details about the story. Sometimes, I was shocked about a revelation and some others I was confused because there were a lot of information without a lot of details. Nevertheless, the author has create a very unique and promising world that I would love to explore some more! All the characters in this book have an importance and that was one of the best parts of this book. Kayla, is a young girl who lives like an adult in a way. Why I am saying this? Because she’s unique and very mature. She thinks she knows everything about her life but then she learns the truth. She’s brave and strong and she doesn’t go crazy when she realizes that something is wrong. She’s staying focus all the time and she’s a survivor. I don’t want to tell about the other characters in the book, because I will not avoid spoilers, but I really have to tell you that little Maci is by far my favorite. Also, I have to admit that Aiden and Sylas, are two of the best male characters in that kind of series and I can’t wait to see their development. I also have to say that this book was like I was watching an action movie sometimes! Full of adventure and twists it sure keeps the interesting all the time. I truly believe that this is very nice for all those who like a good story! Finally, I think that is a very promising start to a new dystopian series and I’m looking forward for the next book.

    Darkness Falls by Jessica Sorenson is a vampire fantasy novel about Kayla, a teen growing up in a world over ran by vampires. She is a bellator, a warrior allowed to go outside the confines of The Colony to search for supplies among the ruins. Her world turns upside down when she is selected for The Gathering. No one selected for The Gathering ever returns. Instead of dying, she wakes up and runs into a group outside The Colony who insist they were once part of The Gathering. These people know h Darkness Falls by Jessica Sorenson is a vampire fantasy novel about Kayla, a teen growing up in a world over ran by vampires. She is a bellator, a warrior allowed to go outside the confines of The Colony to search for supplies among the ruins. Her world turns upside down when she is selected for The Gathering. No one selected for The Gathering ever returns. Instead of dying, she wakes up and runs into a group outside The Colony who insist they were once part of The Gathering. These people know her well, but she doesn’t know or remember them at all. Kayla discovers the Highers have been keeping secrets. Secrets that could lead to a cure. The story is well written and well edited and the kindle formatting is done professionally. The story itself is different from other vampire stories I’ve read. I followed the storyline fine but I can see how others might find it confusing. You really have to pay attention to understand and there are areas where I think there may have been mishaps concerning a particular male character that is with Kayla when she wakes up after the gathering. I’d have to read it again to make sure, which I haven’t had time to do yet, but I swear they say he is dead and then he pops up again later in the city. Maybe the group outside The Colony was lying about his death. I don’t know, obviously that part is a bit hazy. But that’s the reason this book at times can be a little hard to follow, there’s a lot of lying going on between all of the characters. Also, this novel only brings up more questions as you go along and nothing is resolved, a tactic many self-pub authors use to get you to buy another book. Therefore, you will have to continue to the next book. You won’t get any resolution in this one and I would guess none in the second one either. I did find the story interesting and do recommend trying it if you are into vampire stories. The story, so far, does have a unique set up and promises something different. I hope that the whole series delivers.

Oh, and each survivor of the Gathering has some kind of power. It's a little too much for my taste, especially since most of it wasn't even explained. By the end of the book i got to know a tiny little bit about each race but i still know nothing concrete about them. I don't know if i liked or hated Kayla. I liked that she was a strong character, but she was like a damn robot. I didn't see any feelings in her. Even when it came to Aiden. I could tell that he was really in love with her, but the only feeling that i saw from Kayla towards him was protectiveness. There was a moment that i actually saw her resemble a human being: when she was around Sylas. HHHMMM i think i liked him more than Aiden, more than any other character in the book actually. Probably because he was bad. Somehow i think he cared about Kayla. And Kayla actually reacted to him, more than she ever did to Aiden. I was rooting for Aiden most of the book, because i really liked him, but at this point i would rather see Aiden with Ryder and Kayla with Sylas. I must say that i liked "The fallen star" series more than this book, but i will still read the next book to see what happens next. I hope i'll get to see more of Sylas *evil grin*

The Colony is a place deep under the ground where all the survivors of the disease live. They can't go outside because of the vampires, humans that were transformed because of the disease. Kayla being a Bellator is sent outside The Colony where the vampires are to bring back supplies. They have three rules to follow to survive. The rules are: 1. Never go out after dark. 2. Always carry a weapon. 3. No matter what, never EVER get bit. The Highers run The Colony and have strick rules that must be followed. Kayla tries very hard to follow these rules but she does not like not being her own boss and rebels aginst the Highers. She is then chosen for The Gathering. The Gathering is where they throw you out into the outside world where the vampires are. As far as Kayla or anyone knows no one has ever survived in the outside world with the vampires. She meets Aiden along with other surviviors on the outside and realizes that the Highers have been lying to them the whole time. Kayla was being transformed into the best warrior by Monarch secretly to fight the Highers in order to save the world. Can she save the world? Will she be the best warrior? Will she lose all of her the skills that Monarch gave her? I don't know I can't wait for book #2. I hope that all that was not revealed in book #1 will be revealed in book #2. I hope in book #2 that we will find out more about Kayla who she was, what caused the disease and why were they transformed into vampires?

Everday, Kayla (Juniper) receives injections by Dr. Monarch. She is told that without, them she will die. What she does not know is that she is a part of an experiment to make the most dangerous soldier. When Kayla gets on the radar of one of the Highers, Gabriel, she is sent for the Gathering. No one seems to know or remember what happens in the Gathering but when Kayla awakens she is in a body bag on the outskirts of the Colony. She hears voices coming from two other bags and when she opens them, she discovers a young girl, Maci and another soldier. Maci is clairvoyant and instructs them as to what they need to do to survive. On the outskirts their are deadly vampires who are the equivalent of zombies. They roam the countryside looking for flesh and blood to feed upon. When they do not find it, they feed off of themselves. When the vamps attempt to attack Kayla, they run away from her instead. Everyone is wondering why they are afraid of her. But, then, the trio is rescued by a group and taken to an underground facility where they are feed and questioned. They tell Kala that they can restore her memories (slowly) but they also have a hidden agenda. I found the plot for this story both convoluted and frustrating. All of the uses of two names for Kayla/Juniper and everyone lying to her. Then, I hated the way a chapter would get to a major fight or conflict and the author just fades away from the event and alludes to its conclusion later on in a new chapter. It was not clever, just irritating. Also, the typos in this book did not help my reading enjoyment. In the end, I did not hate this book; nor did I like it. I will not be continuing on with the next book in the series.
