Is life offering fewer and fewer options? Then join the dead.
When Annelise meets dark and seductive Ronan, he promises her a new life-if she has the courage to chance the unknown. Now, she’s whisked away to a mysterious island and pitted against other female recruits to become a Watcher-girls who are partnered with vampires and assist them in their missions. To survive and become a Watcher, Annelise has to beat out every other girl, but she’s determined to do so, because to fail doesn’t mean dishonor-it means death.
Isle of Night was a fantastic start to a new series that was a ton of fun to read. With it’s fast paced action, I could scarcely put it down. Wolff balanced all the elements needed to great a perfectly epic story.
It took me several chapters to be fully on board. I wasn’t quite understanding what was going on and it was a bit unbelievable, then all at once everything made sense and I just couldn’t put Isle of Night down. I was up until some crazy hour of the morning reading, until I finally made myself put it down. The whole situation with Isle of Night was so well done – it was this perfect balance between intriguing, scary, and a bit of just down-right creepy.
The vampires in Isle of Night were different than others – in Wolff’s world male’s become Vampires and females train to become Watchers. This in itself was really interesting, as it was brand spanking new.
I loved the characters. Annelise was so incredibly spunky, I loved her. Ronan was one gorgeous hunky guy. I really hope to see more from Emma as well in future books, as she was super lovely.
I am very excited to see where this series will go. Book 2, Vampire’s Kiss, is due out early next year, and I am very excited for it! Isle of Night was an absolutely fantastic read!
