To be fair, I'm probably too old for these books and I didn't have particularly high expectations for them but I thought I would give it a go. The plots were actually pretty interesting, I found myself caught up in the story, but I just couldn't get into the characters. Claire was just a really blah and boring main character. I don't really have any issues with her actions or anything, she was just really dull, as was her love interest Shane.
The most interesting characters were the vampires who were sort of regulated to the sidelines, I would have been much more interested in this book had it been written from Amelie's perspective or even Eve or Michael's. I made it through book five before I just got too bored and decided to read something else.
