This was my first novella, as I’ve always been a lover of thick books, and thanks to Elisabeth Wheatley, I will be reading more novellas in the future. Although I finished it in one night, the story wasn’t lacking. It’s fast-paced and filled with action. As a writer and reader of books, it amazes me how someone can fit so much into so few words, and I am impressed with the teenage girl that wrote this.
Fanged Princess is the first novella in the Fanged Princess Series. It’s about a nineteen-year-old vampire girl that is out to save her younger brother and his girlfriend from her own father. She has a scarred past and enters the story in an emotionally dark place. She is strong-willed and somewhat bitter–that kind of heroine. As for romance, there is potential in the future, but it’s not really there in this one.
I give this a four star, and I will definitely continue to read the rest of the series. I’m not too fond of first person point of view, but the last few books I’ve read have been like this. I’ll get used to it. I am into the story and want to see what happens next.
Since this is a young adult book, I will give the conservative mom opinion. There were quite a few mild curse words, and although there were no descriptive kissing scenes, we know that the brother and his girlfriend had sex one night. However, we only got that from seeing a bra on the floor.
Oh, and did I mention it’s free at Amazon right now?
