I don't want to discourage this young writer, but rather give some honest feedback that might help him become a better author. He certainly has imagination and the plotline is creative. That said, I found the book to be lacking.

MATURITY / DEVELOPMENT: The author's writing lacks maturity, which is probably to be expected given his young age. Key characters are not developed beyond a cursory physical description. The key characters all have a similar "voice" whether they are young or old, male or female. They all "speak" as if they were teenagers or very young adults, making the story much less believable. For example, the novel has a dozen or so key characters that are supposedly 800 years old, yet they speak as if they were young adults born in the 1980s or 1990s. The author should make use of accents, historical perspective and unique phrasing to better distinguish and develop the characters. Frequently winking is not enough to truly develop the personality of a character, although this is certainly heading in the right direction. Koch needs to expand upon the mannerisms and beliefs of his characters to make them become more real to the reader.

Constantly jumping from one character's first person account to another was confusing, especially because the characters all had such similar "voices" making it difficult to distinguish one "scene" from another. The author would do well to limit this technique.

ORIGINALITY: I like the take on vampires as a race of "Dahmshed" with sub-races, such as Sterk and I thought the near-future apocalyptic setting was interesting. Yet, these are not entirely original ideas, and other authors have done a much better job of describing how and why things came to be. Koch jumps into the middle of this setting with scant back story to add depth to this horrific environment. Too much is left to the reader's imagination.

The "evil" characters used many clichéd lines. There was nothing original in the diabolical dialogue, so to speak. While the main plot has a creative foundation, the author did not weave in any twists or surprises, and therefore, the outcome in most scenes was very predictable.

EDITING: The editor didn't do the author any favors. I came across dozens of grammatical errors and typos, which was distracting. As an example, one repeated error was using the word "to" instead of the requisite "too" (i.e. meaning too much).

CONCLUSION: This young author has promise, but he needs some "seasoning" to bring more flavor to his works.

As a fan of supernatural novels, I gave this one a try. The story line itself was not bad. I was excited it was going to be something different than your normal vampires and werewolves but come to find out they are just vampires and werewolves with different names (Dahmsheds and Rogues).
Could be a great read for some but the style this was written in was not for me.

Regardless, the book follows the trying high school times of Jason Hook in a dystopian future where the world is overrun by Dahmshed. Overall I liked the character. There were a few characters that were interesting (see Kyle, the school bully that you really would like someone to just punch already), Aderes (a good Dahmshed). Beyond that, there were a LOT of characters introduced. One too many, if you ask me. It became hard to keep track of everyone. Not to mention a lot of their descriptions didn't get past "a blonde with thick rimmed glasses" or some other article of clothing. That didn't help to differentiate who was who.

There were a few quirks that I could have gone without reading. Everyone is constantly winking. There is a time and a place for a wink. People I know in real life do not wink nearly as much as some of these characters do. And the reluctance to talk. Sometimes the dialogue got a little choppy when they would be going along, having a conversation just fine then all of a sudden, "I can't tell you that." "It is not my story to tell" is said quite a few times. I can 100% agree with some things are important to keep from someone in a dire situation or someone else's story is not yours to tell. They are just phrases that are overused, is all.

I would like to point out that descriptions of locations were well done. It was easier to visualize locations than it was to figure out people. Not to mention the locations, such as the marina, the school, or the safe house, they were interesting places and described very well.

Going into the book, I thought it was going to be solely a first person book from Jason's perspective. I was wrong. We bounced around from Aderes, to Elliott, back to Jason, to someone else. I didn't like it when they did that in Breaking Dawn or Allegiant, and both of those only switched between 2 characters. I feel that the book would have seemed less chopped up had it been simply written in 3rd person, rather than flitting between characters constantly. The changing of characters is not my cup of tea but it might work for others.

Overall, it was a good read once you got past the above things. Like I said before, the overall story line itself wasn't bad. It wasn't one that I picked up and couldn't put down - took me a bit of time to get through it. To be honest, I wasn't left feeling the need to read any of the other books to this series. I hope they went better. But the style of this book just wasn't quite for me.
