I had a hard time getting into this book. There have been a lot of vampire books gaining popularity recently, and I like many others, have found myself wanting to read them all. This book had great potential to be a wonderful read, but I believe it fell short. The story was extremely slow moving, especially in the beginning. We don't learn about Fern's powers until about halfway into the book, and then we don't even really see her getting the hang of them until even later than that. I just believe that there could have been more going on throughout the book--more action maybe.
