December 02, Overall rating. Reader reviewed by wordplay It's been a while, but I still remember the book nonetheless, probably better than any article or book I'm assigned to analyze.
The book is, I remember, by Amelia Atwater-Rhodes. The book is about Jessica, a young girl in high school who is secretly an author using a pen name.. I forget. He seeks her out, unnerved that she knows him so well, and she does not even know it. They meet, they bond, they find out the truth about each other, which on the part of Jessica was pretty surprising, because I pegged her for some kind of seer type of character..
Jessica is forever changed by the end of the book, but she is with Aubrey, and that's all that ever mattered, of course. I was younger when I read this, a lot younger, not that I'm old and smell like musk, but when I say young I mean I had the stamina to read a book over and over again until I passed out because it is that good.
I was in love with Aubrey, completely jealous of Jessica and her ability which mirrors the author, who wrote the book at the age it's legal to vote in the US , but I admired her. She showed a lot of "spunk" in the book, the dialogue she engaged in reminds me of dormant dominatrix, with a little satyric twist in her. I love and am still in love with Aubrey's darkness, his demeanor alone, were he living and breathing would catch my eye anywhere. It's quite pathetic, but that's how effective I found the book, to this day.
Report this review Comments 0 Was this review helpful to you? September 21, Ive never admired a person as much as the author of this book. Her books make you feel as if they are based on reality, hiding secrets about life that you and I cannot possibly see in Demon in my View. You will cry or feel anger towards the way the main character is treated in her high school. You will feel you are being hunted, maybe that you are the hunter.
A sequel to In the Forests of the Night Demon in my View will drag you into a world of pain, anger, and excitement. It is not required to read In the Forests of the Night, to understand the plot. I should know, since I read it first. Jessica Alladola is a simple high school senior. With long black hair, a slim body, and unusual shade of pure emerald eyes, she is easily a girl to die for in a dating perspective.
However, she is like the leper of Ramsa High as people draw away from her, their human instinct sensing a dark, inhuman aura. A writer of fictional stories about vampires and witches, Jessica draws herself into danger as she realizes her stories are not just stories.
Aubrey is a vampire over three thousand years old. He hunts down Jessica, but does not kill her on sight. He is normally a creature of contempt towards anything mortal, but not killing Jessica on sight creates some enemies for Aubrey in his own world.
They accuse him of becoming attached to Jessica. Caryn Smoke is a witch posing as a human to try and persuade Jessica to stop her writing. She is a healer, unlike her other family of witches, the Vidas, who are hunters of vampires. Trying to be a friend, Caryn insists on convincing Jessica that Aubrey is evil. I can read your mind, and learn your fears and darkest desires, is a quote from Aubrey, the main vampire of the book.
It seems that Atwater-Rhodes is trying to tell you that many people have secrets within themselves and sometimes just knowing another persons thoughts can create a world of trouble, as she proves in this story. She draws us into a world of darkness as she introduces Jessica, Aubrey, and the Smoke family. Dark and defiant, Jessica refuses to befriend Caryn, instead taking the deadly vampire Aubrey in.
This leads to a quarrel between Jessica, the vampires, and the witches, who see her as a traitor to human kind, endangering her life further as she continues to write her stories about the vampires who turn out to be real. Atwater-Rhodes leads us into a world of darkness, despair, and suspense and shows her readers that the night is full of mystery.
Will Jessica finally listen to Caryn and quit writing? Will she turn to Aubrey betraying the humans and the witches? Maybe Jessica will stop writing to repair the rift between the witches, the vampires, and herself.
I believe this to be a five star book because it is creative, original, and passionate in a way many people can understand. It has a lot of suspense as you wonder what the vampire Aubrey will do to Jessica. The characters will lead you into a world of the unknown, making you jitter in your seat as you continue to wonder what will happen.
What if everything you wrote about was actually reality? May 27, Reader reviewed by Lauren Jessica is a writer. Her days are filled with writing things about Aubrey the vampire and his world. She knows their weaknesses and their strengths.
On the first day of her senior year, a new girl Caryn comes into school. She tries to befriend Jessica, but just gets a cold shoulder. A couple days later Alex Remmington, or Aubrey comes to school. He is everything that Jessica has ever wanted, of course since she "made up" this character. Caryn a witch that is here to protect her form Aubrey, the vampire that is trying to kill her.
Everyone in the vampire world wants Jessica dead because she knows too much, and Aubrey is just the person to do so. Aubrey finds himself falling in love with Jessica, and can't find it in his "heart" since he really doesnt have one to kill her. Fala another vampire, is fed up with Aubrey and decides to take matters into her own hands. She attacks jessica, leaving her to die. Aubrey finds Jessica and is helpless to save her, so he calls on Caryn, who attempts to mend her woulds, but her power isn't strong enough.
The last attempt would be for Aubrey to give Jessica his blood and chnage her. Did he even have to ask? Tiger Tiger March 06, Reader reviewed by Val Demon in my view is the story of loner Jessica who is shunned by her peers and consequently becomes used to being alone.
When Caryn the new girl in school tries to conversate with her, Jessica is not embaressed in making it evident that she dislikes the attempt at friendship and preppy girls like Caryn. Jessica is in danger because she is plaugued by dreams or visions that tell the haunting pasts of vampires. Little does she know that those vampires are real and one vampire in particilar by the name of Aubrey isn't to happy about it. This book is definitely a great read and I would recomend it because the story is original and you'll find you'll lose yourself in the author's vivid descriptive scenes.
March 03, Reader reviewed by Leah Jessica is a social outcast at her school, and has learned to live with it. When the new girl Caryn tries to be friends with her, her reflexes shun her away, as they've been trained to do.
When she goes home, she writes for hours. Her books Tiger, Tiger and Dark Shadow are about vampires and they're rules. This puts her at great risk as a lot of vampires want to kill her. Aubrey, the main character of her books hunts her down but he can't bring himself to kill her.
Fala, who is potrayed as week and feeble, is desperate to get rid of her. When Jessica becomes severly injured, she must choose between death and staying on earth as another character of her books. June 24,
Demon In My View
Look Inside. Though nobody at her high school knows it, Jessica is a published author. Her vampire novel, Tiger, Tiger, has just come out under the pen name Ash Night. Or is he? Her vampire novel Tiger, Tiger has just come out under the pen name Ash Night. Jessica often wishes she felt as comfortable with her classmates as she does among the vampires and witches of her fiction. She has always been treated as an outsider at Ramsa High.
