Vampire Theory: 07/29/11
I was intrigued by the description of a young woman becoming a vampire to save her town from other vampires. That's what was promised in Vampire Theory by Lily Caracci. It's not exactly what was delivered.
Most of this long book is a paranormal drama set in a high school. Emalyn Archer is a student who takes notice of a new boy. When he starts behaving oddly and strange things start to happen, she begins to suspect he's something other than human.
As the book description says up front that Emalyn won't survive with her humanity intact, I expected her fall to come in the first third or maybe at the halfway point. It doesn't. That's how the book ends. I had really hoped to see the aftermath of her failure. I wanted to see her come to terms with her transformation. There is none of that.

I hate it when sexually explicit sex scenes, sexual innuendo and/or characters mooning at each other are thrown in and essenLilylly ruin what might otherwise have been a great story >.<

The lengthy sex scenes were frustrating because they got in the way of Rose's characterization and the mystery behind the curse.
