To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
I started out with a paperback copy of Vol. 3 (of 4) in this series of vampire stories by Nancy Kilpatrick. I picked it up in a grocery store for 99 cents and took it with me to Mexico. After reading vol. 3, I knew I wouldn't be able to find the other volumes in the series easily so purchased them for my Kindle Fire. Each volume describes in detail the different members of a group of vampires who have found each other despite their nature to be solitary souls. They form a connected, rather bizarre group that is protective of each other. There are parts in the books that are quite sexually graphic...I have not read the Twilight series so don't know how this compares. As a Canadian, I was interested in reading these books by a CDN female writer and because they partly based in Montreal. I did re-read vol. 3 in after reading Vol. 1 and 2 and it made more sense in series. These were "beach" reads...not intended to be read for their great literary value. They were entertaining and kept me interested...but became almost too repetitive over the series so I was glad that Kilpatrick stopped at Vol. 4. Read for entertainment only...the series did entertain.
