Book review: Twin souls by K. A Poe

Author: K. A. Poe
Title: Twin souls
Series: Nevermore #1
Genre: Paranormal romance, Young adult
Purchase: Amazon
My rating: 4.5 stars

About the book:
Seventeen year old Alexis finds herself on the eve of her eighteenth birthday. What generally means a step into adulthood instead opens its way to a terrifying truth about not only her family, but herself. She comes from a long line of vampire hunters, and her real dad wants her to carry on the family quest. At the same time, she is falling for a new boy at school who has his own secret. He is a vampire. Alexis is forced to make a decision from which there is no turning back. – Will she deny this newly discovered heritage, or embrace it.
My thoughts:

This was an amazing read and it was such a close 5 star rating but It wasn't quite that good so I will give it 4.5 stars.

First I need to say that yes part of the book reminded me of twilight. But Poe really made this her own story and even though a few things reminded me of twilight she made it her own abd she did it good! I would say that it can be difficult to write about vampires after twilight since it bacame such a big hit so everyone who have read the books will compare them to other books in the same genre unless you come up with somrthing uniqe.

In a way Poe really did something different with this book!

I love the story between Alex and Salem! They are both intruiging characters and Salem does have that mysterious vibe about him that just makes you love him more! Alex is a strong female but she is not aware of it but when she comes to terms with what she is by blood and when she sort of accept it she aslo finds her strength!

The love story is great but perhaps a little fast in it's pace. Everything happens so quickly. Meeting - falling in love - moving in ...... A little fast but perhaps That was how it had to be for the story!

I loved this one! It is a mix between Twilight and Vampire academy but with it's own unique style! An awesome read that I highly recommend
