Sunrise At Sunset Review

So, I finished reading Sunrise At Sunset by Jaz Primo. Personally, I liked the basic premise of the story. It’s refreshing to read a vampire book where the vampire is a female and the human Significant Other is a male. However, I have a few problems with the story. One thing was that the interactions between the main characters with non-main characters. I found the interactions between main characters and non-main characters to be extremely shallow. I mean, don’t get me wrong. The interactions between main characters and secondary characters shouldn’t really get into extreme detail because the secondary characters are just secondary characters. The secondary characters shouldn’t be as fleshed out as the main characters. I mean, for example, the main male character of Caleb is a history professor. While I don’t expect him to be talking to every single one of his students in every school scene, I would think that the author would have at least put in one or two conversations between Caleb and one of his students, whether or not it’s an in depth conversation. Anyway, another thing that I have a problem with is that I thought the story of the South American vampire and how the main female character of Katrina dealt with her was a bit rushed. I mean, not to reveal too much spoilers, but Katrina was able to “take care” of the South American vampire, for the most part, by the three-fourths mark of the book? I mean, the way that the South American vampire plot line was wrapped up felt a bit rushed. It didn’t help much that what happened in between the South American vampire’s supposed death three-fourths of the way into the book and her actual death was a bit long. It would have been nice to either have the South American vampire die within one or chapters, or maybe have her come back alive and threatening Caleb and Katrina as a cliffhanger for the next book. Anyway, another thing I have a problem with is that the author put a little bit too much emphasis on what the characters are wearing or doing. Again, I get that no story can go on without knowing what the characters are doing, and depending on the story, what they’re wearing, but there is a line where explaining what the character is wearing or doing is overkill. Anyway, my last problem is that I wish that there was a little bit more information on vampires in general in this book. I mean, I don’t expect for a full blown vampire history mythology to be fleshed out by the time the author writes the first book, but I would have liked to have seen a little bit more of a vampire history or mythology to have been revealed. Anyway, that’s my review of Sunrise At Sunset by Jaz Primo.
