 My Thoughts 

Risen II, was such a joy to sit back and read. I really enjoyed it a lot because it did remind me of "Twilight". Vampires are one of my favorite things to read about, so I knew this would be the book for me. The cover was great. Blog dripping down from her arm and here eyes looking directly at the seeking. What more could you ask for. Lawrence had me hooked so much not because of only the plot but her writing style. So vivid. What I also enjoyed was that I didn't have to wait for anything to build up, it got built up by reading a couple of chapters. So if you think this is one of those books that's starts out dry, think again. If you have read "Twilight" or "The Hunger Games" like me, then you know this is the right book for you to enjoy no matter on a hot day, cold day, or rainy day. I didn't think that they had so much in common but I was happy to know that this book, would get my full attention.
