  1. congrats!

  2. Dude, that’s a great review! And I agree about Jack’s point of view, of course. That was always my favorite.


    • Jack’s POV really was worth the year-and-a-half re-writing the book from the ground up in limited-multi first-person POV.

      It’s also nice to hear positives about using other character’s POV’s, because I was concerned many would want an “all-Jack” book (like the basically “all-Bella” Twilight saga) and I felt too much of the story (as laid out in the original omniscent POV version) would have gone missing.

      In the second book, “Vampire Conspiracy”, Damien’s and Zetania’s POV’s will be very important to the main story line.


  4. btw, I gave you an award –

  5. Hi Daven. Thanks for stopping by my blog, fundinmental, and commenting on Charmeine. I thought of Charmeine as an introduction into the series and I am really glad that you think it is mind blowing. I am really looking forward to reading the other books. I went over to ariesgrl and read her review. That was great. Congrats on the book. I’ll be back. ^_^
