Infinite Days

Infinite Days
By Rebecca Maizel
2010
325 Pages

Summary: Lenah has been given a second chance at life. Having been a Vampire for decades, she receives the gift of life through the sacrifice of her partner Rhodes. Now she must navigate the modern world while being a teenager, and she must begin to let go of her past before it comes to destroy her once again.

Review: Infinite Days will be enjoyed by the hoards of Vampire fans that exist in the YA world. However, there is lot more depth and charisma that set it apart from the ample collection of paranormal stories. Infinite Days is slower paced and there is a lot of emphasis put on history and legend. Having the rich flashbacks to Lenah’s life as a Vampire create an interesting balance with the typical high school plot. It really is the best of both worlds, creating a good read for a wide audience. For those who enjoy romance, there is a lot, as most of the characters are romantically linked to Lenah in one form or another. The style of writing makes it well suited for an older audience and has an Interview with the Vampire feel to it (which I loved).

Also by Rebecca Maizel: Stolen Nights (2011)

I keep avoiding this because of the vampire element, but I consistently hear how awesome it is. Maybe I should give it a go. Great review! :)

Nice review Katie, I absolutely loved this book! Rhode had my heart from the beginning and I really hope we see more of him in book 2:) I thought the vampire element was something new and different and that made reading this one much more interesting.
