Ich finde folgende Aussage beschreibt dieses Buch ganz gut: Es ist ganz nett und unterhält auch, aber das war es dann auch schon wieder, denn ausgereift ist das Ganze noch nicht. Eigentlich fand ich sie auch immer sympathisch, aber ihre ekelhafte Seite gegenüber ihren Freunden mindert diese gewaltig. Comments Like to comment on this review? Aber auch ihre nicht minder nervige Seite macht sie zu einer nicht so tollen Protagonistin. April's character development towards the end of this book more than makes up for her indecision at the start. Is Book 3 ready yet. But she knows they killed a rock star for it, and innocents who got too close to the truth. Besonders neugierig bin ich auf die Hintergründe von Aprils Familie und hoffe sehr, dass man noch erfährt von woher das Furien-Gen kommt und was für Geheimnisse noch im Verborgenen liegen.
Sure, there's a certain amount of character behaviour that you can let go due to grief and emotional distress but there comes a point where you want to slap a character and she reached it several times. They pretend to be students at it. Irgendwie finde ich persönlich es jetzt nicht sooo ansprechend. I've suffered enough damn it! Darkness Falls picks up right where By Midnight left off, following April and the bad things that have been happening around her. The idea that Vampires are recruiting for something bigger is kind of exciting, though the murders are a litle predictable Maybe it's supposed to be, not really sure The idea that the vampire thing is a disease is also super clever. April, I know your father was recently murdered and your mother was having an affair even before your dad's body was cold. There was just too much obvious plot direction, too many contrived misunderstanding and the plot became muddled and predictable.
Vampires are still after April. Gabriel ist ein toller Charakter, der trotz einiger Aufklärungen noch immer unheimlich und geheimnisvoll ist. She comes across as rather shallow and unreliable but I suspect she's hiding a big secret and I can't wait to find out what it is. I'm sticking to you like glue, hero. From here, I remembered how much April bugged me. Aprill Dunne has been in hospital and physical therapy recovering from the wounds she recieved during the attack by one of her fellow students.
And I couldn't take my eyes away from this book. One of the things that I really like about this series is the complex mystery that lies at the heart of the plot. I loved the fee I enjoyed the first book in this series and am always a bit hesitant when starting the second book in a series as often they don't quite meet the expectations I've built up in my head for how the story is going to go. Sure, there's a certain amount of character behaviour that you can let go due to grief and emotional distress but there comes a point where you want to slap a character and she reached it several times. I had never heard of any of the claims written in this book before.
I really though Ben was sweet and really just being interested, maybe a bit jellous, but never did I expect this! I couldn't believe all the things that came out in the last couple of chapters. April's increase in self confidence via her makeover was easy to relate to: don't we all feel better about ourselves if we look good. Resolves a lot of things from the first book and we finally find out who the regent is causing more issues. I am pleased to say in this case I think I enjoyed book 2 even more and am once again left on tender hooks waiting to see what happens next. I especially loved reading the eeriness re: Highgate Cemetery, it's creepy, dark and mysterious! Auch die Charakterentwicklung gefällt mir sehr. April, I know your father was recently murdered and your mother was having an affair even before your dad's body was cold.
They pretend to be students at it. Hinzu kommt noch, dass sie manchmal so naiv ist, dass man sie am liebsten schütteln würde. The friendships portrayed and the trials and tribulations April has to face made me realise how hard it really is to find good friends, how necessary they are as a support network throughout life and I was really glad that April had such wonderful friends and was able to realise it. But aside from some negative factors, the storyline and plot is great. After reading a couple of reviews I was worried that this book might be suffering from 'Middle Book Syndrome' so I began reading it with trepidation.
There's amazing twist within this storyline. Luckily April saves the day with a potion that will cure him, but stops any chances of romance for the time being. She comes across as rather shallow and unreliable but I suspect she's hiding a big secret and I can't wait to find out what it is. But April is all over the place, like her mental state is non existant. I actually felt more attachment to this book than the first. Auch die Charakterentwicklung gefällt mir sehr. Denn solch eine Sache kann nicht von jetzt auf gleich überwunden werden.
Throughout Darkness Falls I was kept constantly guessing over what was going to happen next. Caro has got to be one of the best Characters, she's witty and says what every reader is thinking, especially when they go into the forest. Especially in the later part of the book. What was with quarrel with Gabriel and instantly throwing herself at Ben? That being said, I got annoyed with people telling her to grow up. Darkness Falls is a good book, no doubt, but is it as good as By Midnight? I was so sad when I finished reading the book lol hope you enjoy it as much as I did. Gabriel, too, was super annoying.
So the whole book was disappointing the first book did at least make sense. But that's nothing to what's coming next. Like, seriously girl, we're fine without it. Gott sei dank ist Aprils beste Freundin Caro immer noch eine tolle Freundin und ein toller Charakter. More secrets and lots of drama.
But she does make for good drama! Okay, so I actually kind of like this book. Hinzu kommt noch, dass sie manchmal so naiv ist, dass man sie am liebsten schütteln würde. I'd been really looking forward to the sequel and snapped it up as soon as it came out. Allerdings wäre es ja viel zu einfach, könnte sie ganz unbedacht ihren detektivischen Spuren nachgehen, nein dann gibt es auch noch Vampire in Highgate, die ihr das Leben buchstäblich zur Hölle machen. Die Nebencharaktere machen das Ganze leider auch nicht viel besser, so dass das Ganze irgendwie zumindest von diesem Punkt betrachtet eine Enttäuschung war. For a large chunk of the book, nothing seems to really happen.
