Fortitude Scott’s life is a mess. A degree in film theory has left him with zero marketable skills, his job revolves around pouring coffee, his roommate hasn’t paid rent in four months, and he’s also a vampire. Well, sort of. He’s still mostly human.
But when a new vampire comes into his family’s territory and young girls start going missing, Fort can’t ignore his heritage anymore. His mother and his older, stronger siblings think he’s crazy for wanting to get involved. So it’s up to Fort to take action, with the assistance of Suzume Hollis, a dangerous and sexy shape-shifter. Fort is determined to find a way to outsmart the deadly vamp, even if he isn’t quite sure how.
But without having matured into full vampirehood and with Suzume ready to split if things get too risky, Fort’s rescue mission might just kill him.…
I am wavering between a 3 and a 4, and only cos I really did enjoy it, but what if the second book is even better? Oh well then it will be :) So more a 3.75 or something ;)
I liked Fort, he was so not kick-ass. He let his room mate walk all over him, his girlfriend, his boss. But you know what, I do not always need kick-ass. Would I be able to stand up to everyone all the time? No. So it only made him more human. But as the progresses he doe get better, which I liked. Because sometimes you really do need to stand your ground.
Fort is a vamp, but has not really become one yet. And he likes being "human" as long he can. His family is rich and arrogant and all vampire. While he has a shit job, a room mate who does not pay his rent, and a degree that gives him nothing.
The world was interesting. Vamps, we saw kitsunes (I have always liked those), and humans who know nothing (as I like it).
There was a bit of action, a hunt, and just good times. I enjoyed the book nad I certainly look forward to book 2. *fingers crossed it will be good too*
