If you are looking for sexy vampire love, don't look here. No sparkly vampires appear in this novel - vampirism is painted in a totally scientific light. No matter how scientific the material can get, Scott Westerfeld manages to keep the story line from being bogged down and become stagnant. As always his prose keeps things humorous and filled with drama. An excellent read. For the full review, head to my blog at OboeChica Books (so long and thanks for all the fish).

it's really different from a classic vampire book, but in a good way. When I read the beginning, I thought it was really dull. But as the more I read the more exiting it got. It's also very educational!

This book was very very educational! Weirdly it's not at all what I expected it to be! I would sugest this for anyone who loves to learn new and randoms things. It really isn't about vampires at all. Its about parasites.

I love the scientific take on Vampires/Zombies etc. Takes some of the romatisized silliness out of it.

I get the sense that this would have been a very good book if not for the constant inappropriate references. I had to stop before I even got halfway through because I couldn't take it anymore, even though I was curious to see the outcome of the plot. I wouldn't recommend it to anybody.

This was a really different look on the idea of vampires -a great read, especially if you like biology! Although, the descriptions of the parasites do get a little long. It greatly reminds me of the storyline behind men in balck!

A good read, a different take on a familiar topic.

this was another great and thrilling story but i have to say that the "uglies" series is my absolute favorite.
