Description

Though nobody at her high school knows it, Jessica is a published author. Her vampire novel, Tiger, Tiger, has just come out under the pen name Ash Night. Now two new students have just arrived in Ramsa, and both want Jessica's attention. She has no patience with overly friendly Caryn, but she's instantly drawn to Alex, a self-assured, mysterious boy who seems surprisingly familiar. If Jessica didn't know better, she'd think Aubrey, the alluring villain from her novel had just sprung to life. That's impossible, of course; Aubrey is a figment of her imagination. Or is he?show more

Jessica isn't your average teenager. Though nobody at her high school knows it, her vampire novel has just come out under a pen name. Jessica often wishes that she felt as comfortable with her classmates as she does among the vampires and witches of her fiction. She has always been treated as an outsider at Ramsa High. But two new students have just arrived in Ramsa, and both want Jessica's attention. She has no patience for overly friendly Caryn, but she's instantly drawn to Alex, a handsome boy who seems surprisingly familiar. If she didn't know better, she'd think that Aubrey, the alluring villain from her novel, had just sprung to life. That's impossible, of course; Aubrey is a figment of her imagination.

Our customer reviews

Jessica Allodola, a senior at Ramsa High School, is not your average teenager. Under the pen name Ash Night, Jessica has already published a vampire novel entitled TIGER, TIGER. She also has a pretty mean spirit, goes mostly ignored by her fellow students, and acts mostly indignantly towards her adopted mother. The problem is that with the arrival of two new students in school, Caryn and Alex, her book seems to be coming to life. Caryn claims to be a witch, descended from the Smoke line that Jessica wrote about in her book. Alex, a spitting image for her anti-hero, Aubrey, might very well be a vampire. And suddenly life starts to get a whole lot more confusing. DEMON IN MY VIEW is an entertaining vampire story, but it never gains the potential it might have if the story was fleshed out a bit more. Although Jessica's fiction begins to merge with real life, the chapters of the book are short, and the characters, though interesting, aren't as well-rounded as they could have been. What really irritated me about the book was the ending. --SPOILER--SPOILER--SPOILER-- Aubrey turns Jessica into a vampire to save her life, but there's no resolution after that. Wham..she's a vampire..the end. I would have liked to have seen how the story progressed. Overall, DEMON IN MY VIEW is a quick, fun read, but it's definitely not the best young adult vampire story out there.show more
