There are many editing problems, including several paragraphs that appeared in the same color as the background on my kindle fire, requiring me to highlight them in order to read the text. The characters are flat, there is very little “vampire” in the book, and overall it felt as though the author rushed to get it published. I would like to say that the author has a great imagination, I did love the story and it did hook me, but there is so much room for improvement that it seems like laziness on the authors part, and that of her editors and proofreaders.
Blood of Anteros revolves around the vampire Curry and his Agape, Chansey no, not the pokemon. Curry was forced in to the lifestyle of a vampire by his creator and, in an interesting turn of events for the mythos of vampires, was freed from his bondage in order to be able to love his Agape bloid Chansey. The interesting parts of the book concern the evolution of Cates’ version of vampires. In here, they are somewhere between the traditional blood suckers of classic vampires and True Blood.
She has built an interesting mix of mythos and new world ideals. The creation and relationships within the vampire community are, for the most part, interesting and refreshing. That Chansey is mortal is also a concern, though one that is dealt with in the Agape part of the mythos. Unfortunatly, these selfsame interesting pieces of worldbuilding are hindered by Cates’ characterization. Almost all anterks the characters – with the occassional exception in Curry and Chansey – are cardboard cut-outs.
It would be easy to swap many of the secondary characters around and, without their physical description, you’d antdros no idea who Cates is referring to. They are almost all of the same personality and speech patterns, which is a significant detraction. It takes away from the idea of a well-built society of hidden vampires and trivializes it.
Similarly, how the characters speak is a major detraction. I can count on my fingers how many times each character has used a contraciton when speaking to another character.
Blood of Anteros
This makes some sense for Curry – he’s been around for a long time and his speech pattern could have evolved back when he was a human and he has kept it all of this time. The rest of the cast, however, has no such excuse.
They are supposed to be Floridian college-age folk for the most part. I don’t know of a single college student that speaks without using contractions. It really takes away from the characters to have them feel so wooden and artificial. What are supposed to be intense moments between Curry and Chansey is ruined by the speech patterns feeling so forced.
The conflicts, as well, are resolved incredibly easily, furhter cheapening the relationship that is so central to the book. This cheapens the notion that Curry is going to extreme lengths for his Agape and, therefore, cheapens the relationship that the book is built around. If the conflicts are all that simple, then he really has nothing to spend a page worrying about it.
On the whole, the novel is a good first attempt.
There is a lot of potential in the story, but it needs some work to really shine and seperate itself from other similar novels. The story is slow and flat and very predictable. I can get past that. What I can NOT get over is the improper use of words passed vs. Another reviewer said this book read like a childs first draft and I have to agree.
I saw something about the aurthor winning awards for her writing, well, she certainly didn’t win anything with the writing in THIS particular book. The idea of this story is really good, it was just mishandled. I bought this book because I read and loved Going Under by Georgia Gates, and wondered what her other book was like, plus the product description sounded interesting.
Again Georgia writes in a lovely way, and creates an interesting story. As a vampire book, it is different for quite a few reasons but mainly because it is told from the male vampire perspective. You don’t often come across that. What also made this book different was the tone it was written in. Given that Curry has been around for over a hundred years he had a different way of talking and this came through in the way the story was written.
I have to say some people might find this of putting, but I enjoyed it, as it made him more believable. Both Curry and Chansey are very enjoyable and likable characters, however, I found myself wanting to know more about Curry, and things were kept hidden. I feel like these will come out in the second book. In relation to Curry and Chansey relationship, it is very sweet and this book is heavy on the romance, but in a very clean way.
What I found a little annoying about this book was that Curry’s maker is obviously going to be a big part of the following books, and it annoyed me a little she was not bought back into this one. Although I enjoyed this book, it really felt like I only read half a story.
Blood of Anteros (Vampire Agápe, #1) by Georgia Cates
Most series leave you hanging with something, but conclude some bits, and that it is ok, but nothing had a real ending in this book and that is annoying.
Will I read it again? Not Sure Would I recommend? Once the second book is out, I would then recommend reading them back to back. See all 76 reviews.
