Review # 118: The Eternal Child by David Wasserman

     Vampire Alex Montera has had a bounty on his head for a couple centuries, so he's no stranger to laying low and staying out of the spotlight; but when he saves a human, Iris Lisante, he finds himself completely enamored and unable to stay away from her, especially when he figures out that she's the target of a host of paranormal creatures, including Alex's sire, William. Can Alex protect Iris from a centuries old feud that could destroy everything they both love?

      The Eternal Child is a fast-paced supernatural YA read that's action-packed and easy to love, especially the characters! Alex and Iris' relationship is realistic and fun, and their personalities often complement each other. I like reading books where the character relationships have time to grow and change, not "instant" love; so I was relieved that Alex and Iris were drawn to each other but still had to work on their relationship. The dialogue was well-written, but there were a few sections that felt over-worked. The story-line seemed to flow quite smoothly, although there were a few strange transitions, but they didn't take focus away from the book as a whole. Teens will like the amount of action and the mild romance, but may be disappointing that they have to wait for a sequel... No spoilers. I recommend this book for teens and adults who like to read supernatural YA.

Rating: Bounty's Out (3.75/5)

*** I received this book from the author (Bostick Communications) in exchange for an honest and unbiased review.
