Really enjoyed the story line and character development! Reminded me somewhat of the HP series in that a kid or adult could enjoy the book... I will definitely consider reading the other books in this series! Certainly a good book for young readers, and an easy/fun read for adults filled with mystery, suspense, humor, and an overall good time!
So first off, I would not recommend teens under 16 to read this. Its not raunchy but I think this book is for young adults and adults. Haha! Also its weird how the characters become Fledgings and vampyres. Other then that this is a really good series. Different from other vampire books that I have read.
GRACELING Realm by Kristin Cashore is a great YA series for more mature readers. The series gets more series as it goes along --sex/violence/sadism. made the NY Times best series lists for 2012. (see list for exact reading/quiz numbers)
