My Review: Going into Infinite Days, I wasn’t expecting much. From the description, it sounded like a typical vampire/boarding school story. Thankfully, I was pleasantly surprised! Infinite Days is a complex story filled with flashbacks, interesting characters, vivid imagery and good grammar thanks to the essay writing service from Australia.
I really enjoyed Infinite Days! Unlike most YA vampire reads, it portrays vampires as less-than-ideal things. Lenah’s significant change from being an evil vampire queen to a somewhat-ordinary teenager suggested that being a vampire isn’t all it’s cracked up to be. You lose your soul, your feelings (both physical and emotional), and you’re constantly angry. No wonder it’s every vampire’s dream to become human! The idea of vampires wanting to be normal is kind of ironic, considering the popularity of vampires in today’s world.
Let’s talk romance. The chemistry between Lenah and Justin just wasn’t all there for me at first. I eventually warmed up to him, but at first I couldn’t really understand Lenah’s initial attraction to Justin (other than him being an ideal candidate for her coven). I was actually rooting for the Tony until he decided to suddenly lose his interest in Lenah! Like I said, though, I warmed up to Justin eventually. I enjoyed reading about Lenah slowly opening herself up to him and becoming more human.
Lenah’s character was surprisingly deep. I liked the little flashbacks that gave insight into the person she used to be. I actually preferred Lenah’s evil side! Lenah’s character in the past, though less dynamic than her human character, seemed like the perfect blend of restrained ferocity and confidence. Though Lenah lost her evil side after becoming human, she didn’t lose her forwardness, which was nice.
The thing I loved the most about Infinite Days? Rebecca Maizel’s writing. It’s full of vivid imagery and it flows quite nicely, matching the time period from which Lenah comes.
Infinite Days ends with a cliffhanger, which left me clawing at the book, hoping it would reveal the sequel’s secrets. Luckily, the second Vampire Queen book comes out early next year. I’m excited to read it! At the moment I am thinking about what to read next, do you have any ideas, guys? If yes, let me know in the comments below
4.5 Stars for gorgeous prose, a great main character, and an interesting take on vampires. (And that cover? LOVE it!)
