REVIEW YYYYY


In our present literary world where vampire stories are commonplace and unexciting, it is refreshing...nay exhilarating to read a vampire novel as original and enthralling as INFINITE DAYS.

The magic behind this intoxicating story is Rebecca Maizel's mastery of creating a world filled with beauty and blood at the hands of young woman who desired to become human again.

INFINITE DAYS is the story of Lenah Beaudonte: a 592 years-old vampire that is forever imprisoned in the body of a teen girl. After many many years she becomes tired of the blood lust and she confides this longing for humanity to Rhode's her longtime confidant, lover, friend and sire. He grants her wish but at a terrible price to Lenah's heart and soul. Now, Lenah has to learn what it is to become a sixteen year-old girl in the 21st century after a long absence from the human world. She takes to this new challenge with trepidation and caution but is soon consumed by life. Then she encounters Justin, a boy that makes her radiate with joy and her whole new world comes into sharp focus and nothing could be better for her. But when you you have lived as long as Lenah you can have many friends and enemies and this is a fact that she is ever aware of and soon realizes that her past may come back to haunt her and her chance at true happiness.

INFINITE DAYS was an amazing story and I loved this evocatively rich story whose words pressed heavily upon me and lingered long after the last page was read. I became a champion for Lenah and her quest for a new life and I experienced it along with her because the story was realistically set, not forced or pretentious in any way. I enjoyed how Lenah's past would flow seamlessly into the present and how certain moments would take my breath away with an ache for what was lost and gained would utterly consume me.

In the first chapter alone I was filled with such emotions that I had tears and it was like WOW! now this is a book I would recommend to everyone and I am. You must order this book now or run to the bookstore when it comes out because you WILL NOT believe how good it is. I cannot wait to discuss this with everyone.
Thank you, Rebecca for making me fall in love with Vampire's all over again.

Favorite Line:

"Throughout all my histories, I found no one I loved more than you...no one."

Now, how can you resist this story after reading that line?

I would love to see what you have to say :)

“Reading is everything. Reading makes me feel like I've accomplished something, learned something, become a better person. Reading makes me smarter. Reading gives me something to talk about later on. Reading is the unbelievably healthy way my attention deficit disorder medicates itself. Reading is escape, and the opposite of escape; it's a way to make contact with reality after a day of making things up, and it's a way of making contact with someone else's imagination after a day that's all too real. Reading is grist. Reading is bliss.”
