Free Best Lily (The Quest for Reason, #1) By L.M. DeWalt –

Originally posted at is nineteen going on ninety At the human age of nineteen her fianc makes her into a vampire and she didn t even know about his passion for drinking human blood.Sixty years later Lily is lonely and bored and begins to travel Luck is on her side as she finds a vampire family who want her to join them Their warmth and caring envelop her giving her the love she didn t even know she lacked Lily decides to take an archaeology course and meets Christian and falls instantly in love Two problems here Christian is human, and human vampire relationships are frowned on Another problem is the daughter of her family who brings home her new vampire boyfriend This is none other than Ian, Lily s maker Sparks begin to fly when Ian decides if he can t have Lily, no one will.I found the beginning of this book to be very slow Although the author had to give the background to Lily and introduce a few characters who reappeared later in the book, I felt as if I was being told what was happening rather than experiencing it However when Lily left her home behind her and set out for new horizons the story began to increase its pace.By the time she admitted to herself she loved Christian, I was hooked Lily and Christian plus Lily s family entered my mind quite easily, I could see them, hear them and watch them act out their lives Unfortunately Ian didn t come across the same way A shame really, as one of his helpers really dazzled me.For lovers of vampire stories this is a definite yes It gives an insight into vampire lives, the way they earn their living and how they feed The ethics of the latter are very interesting yes vampires do have ethics when it comes to who they feed from All you vampire lovers out there this is one you should read, and it s the first of a series so there s to come.

Me tomo mucho tiempo terminar de leer esta novela, algunos dos meses ya que no me terminaba de envolver Aunque me pareci muy buena, en principio estaba confundida y creo entender por que ahora que la termine Mi primer idioma es el espa ol y algunas palabras mas bien parec an traducidas, del ingle mi segundo idioma, el que usualmente leo Notando esto perd a yo el tiempo y el hilo de la historia por momentos Mi segundo error fue no informarme y comprar el libro sin saber que es el primero de una serie Al no saber eso me enoje bastante en el final, apenas me reconcilio con el libro y la verdad que si estoy contenta de saber que la historia continua, claro que el pr ximo sera en ingles por supuesto..Lily merece su final Feliz Loved this book read it in one go From the very beginning of the story, the title character intrigued me Lily is a vampire I don t like vampire stories I think they are either silly or overblown But this vampire is different she s lonely and disenchanted with the undead life No, not in any comedic sense, as is all too often the case No, she is really unhappy, works hard at keeping herself isolated, but has a deep seated but suppressed yearning for warmth and family and relationship Abandoned by Ian, the powerful, manipulative vampire who made her almost eighty years ago, she has no real knowledge of her own kind and powers She lives by killing, yes, but I ll leave you to discover how she justifies that, while remaining true to her own moral code Then Lily is taken in by a group of vamps that have set up a refuge, a home for vampires who need others around them, an artificial family Despite all the difficulties, she meets and falls in love with a mortal She doesn t believe the relationship can ever be, and tries to break it off, but the mutual attraction is too great Then Ian insinuates himself back into her life, threatening her new family and killing the mortals she cares about.Lily must find her talents and strengths and must have the courage to use them to protect the ones she loves against Ian, the vampire she is bound to follow and obey.Oh, yeah, I liked this. Finished my first Spanish novel This was a good one to start with Not sure how or why I did this but it was pretty interesting I do like Spanish prose, the feel of it I decided to download a Book in Spanish Not sure if I will make it through, but I m on chapter two and its going a little faster I figured this book would be a fun page turner considering the whole not knowing the language thing would cause me problems Vampiros muy peligrosos Estoy aprendiendo muchas palabras y frases como piel palida, agua la boca, y pero no soy un ser humana Raphael Nadal es muy hermoso Quiero tocar su cara con mi mano. Great Halloween season reading can t go wrong with vampires L.M DeWalt creates a somehow realistic feel for a vampire lifestyle than the ones you might have read before The everyday difficulties of life for Lily, a vampire trying to pass as human, come through in a haunting and lonely tone She s like a less dramatic female Louis from Interview with the Vampire , and now that I think of it, her nasty maker Ian does have some very Lestat like moments A potentially sad ending does come with a ray of hope, or so my optimistic mind suspects Will see if the sequel proves me right I ve read the review and love itat that moment I wanted to start reading this book And then I heard about this giveaway and said to myself this the chance to win a copySo I hurry up and enter this wonderful giveaway D I hope I winOne awesome book review.
