I have to admit that I was lured into wanting to read this book by its very pretty cover. Lenah Beaudonte, the year old Queen of a powerful vampire coven, is human again; given back her life by her lover Rhode, who has sacrificed himself for her.
Now, after years of sleep, she has to face her new reality: While she tries to adjust to the 21st centu Contains small spoilers for the first half of the book.
Actually, I found this to be a quite unique idea and was really looking forward to reading the book. I even liked it okay at the beginning. But the longer I read on, the worse it got. He left her a letter explaining what happened in the years that passed and enrolled her at a fancy boarding school. Created a false identity maybe? Given her some time to accustom in a quieter atmosphere? Or, as the hibernation wasn’t part of the ritual to become human again, why didn’t he wake her years earlier, so she daya have lived her life without her coven knowing about it at all?
And actually, from this point on, she began to annoy me rather quickly.
Despite the fact that she is thrown into a world that must be totally maiel to her, she shows almost no problems accustoming to it. She sees cars, computers, cell phones, race boats; but she never seems frightened or uneasy. And then, of course, she has to excel in everything: However, this is explained by her long and boring existence, but I just found it to be another annoying character trait that made Lenah less dear to me.
At some point of the book she begins to refer to her special ability she got to keep from her vampire life extrasensory perception as ESP. Sorry, but are you serious?!
He is gorgeous of course, a sports star and every girl has a crush on him. There is absolutely nothing that makes this guy any special. Tony was another one of the characters I really wished had shown more development. That was the point when I decided to stop reading and only skimmed the pages for the rest of the book.

Infinite Days by Rebecca Maizel
I should know better than to judge a book by infinnite cover. Dags if that logic was true, this would have been a very dats book. The cover even sparkles a little bit, probably a ref to Rhode or Twilightwho sacrifices himself by turning in a little pile of glitter so Lenah, the love of his life, could turn human. Lenah was ‘one of the oldest female vampires ever known’ or something like infiinite. You’d think a person would be interesting if they lived that long.
Lenah, on the other hand, was so caugh I should know better than to judge a book by it’s cover. Lenah, on the other hand, was so caught up in rebeccca own beauty, that she forgot to evolve past the emotional age of a year old. And that’s exactly what Rhode makes of her: I know brick walls with more personality. I don’t get why she was buried for years so Rhode could prepare everything to make her human again. I honestly can’t imagine what he did with all that time. Lenah is supposed to keep a low profile, because she has to remain hidden for her coven.
So she makes the most obvious choices: Pose for somebody who will probably win something that will draw a lot of attention. Immediately fall in love with the hottest, richest and most well known boy in a mile radius.
Let everybody know you speak 25 languages. Show off your tattoo which I find to be stupid and meaningless. Giving something close to a royal burying to a frog that’s been dead for weeks, and show off some more languages by saying stuff like ‘ignosce infihite. Tony is inches away rebecva becoming a sick stalker. Lenah walks in on him while he is looking at the pictures he took of her and she doesn’t even think it’s a little bit odd.
One minute she’s feeding him flowers and the next she is meeting his parents. They have nothing in common, their relationship doesn’t develop, it’s just there, suddenly. Let’s hook up in the greenhouse? The Three Piece girls are quite possibly the lamest girls I’ve infinihe seen. I would rather kill myself than walk around in matching outfits.
I liked the parts where they mention Lenah’s past and the other vampires in her coven. Those stories were actually interesting and fun. I didn’t finish this. After a while I just couldn’t bear it anymore. It goes against my religion to harm a book, but I’m positive I’ll be using this book to keep me warm some day.
I know all of this sounds pretty bitter but I wanted to like this. At first I even did like it.
Infinite Days (Vampire Queen, #1) by Rebecca Maizel
But this just wasn’t my kind of book I guess View all 32 comments. I actually won a hardback copy of this quite a while ago and I have to admit that, as much as it is nice to win anything, I was a little disappointed that I didn’t get one of the other available books.
This book has never appealed to me, I’ve passed it so many times in my local book stores and never felt any inclination to pick it up. So I maisel definitely surprised when I found the book to infinote enjoyable on the whole and I spent a lot of the novel thinking I might give it a four star rating. What I actually won a hardback copy of this quite a rebeccca ago infinute I have to admit that, as much as it is nice to win anything, I was a little disappointed that I didn’t get one of the other available books.
What stopped me was countless annoying little things that gradually built up and resulted in me having to knock a star off the rating, one or two I could have easily disregarded but eventually there were just too many to ignore. The positives are plentiful and the story really interested me; Lenah has spent five hundred years as a vampire part of which was spent as queen of a coven but now she longs to finally become human again, to have the chance to feel alive and experience the world with human senses and emotions.
This requires a sacrifice from her maker – Rhode – and the story opens up where the ritual is being completed. Lenah’s past as a vampire is told in flashbacks, whilst at the same time she tries to fit into a modern day boarding school, come to terms with technology and slang terms part of the ritual involved her spending the last hundred years underground and generally convince everyone that she is your average sixteen year old girl.
Because she was previously a vampire queen leading a coven of male vampires, Lenah is not like many of today’s young adult paranormal heroines. When they are studying Kate Chopin’s The Awakening in class, she states that she “doesn’t like to be controlled” and it’s true that she never lets herself be. Yes, she has a crush on the school stud, but when he appears to insult her she tells him where to get off.
