Publisher's Summary

In The Silver Kiss—Annette Curtis Klause’s critically acclaimed debut novel—life’s tough for 16-year-old Zoe Sutcliff. Her mom is dying, her dad is growing distant, and her best friend is moving. Sorting out her thoughts one night, Zoe sees a man lurking about. Taken aback at first, she finds herself drawn to the handsome stranger who seems to sense what’s in her heart. As the two exchange life stories, he makes a startling revelation. He’s a vampire bent on slaying a ruthless fiend—and he needs Zoe for more than just a blooddraining kiss.

    "Interesting treatment of death"

    I enjoyed the contrast between her mother's terminal illness and her vampire boyfriend's cursed immortality. However, that said, I thought it was depressing and somewhat painful to listen to. I was kind of glad when it was over.

    "pretty dull"

    the characters didn't have much depth to them. the only touching part is the relationship between Zoe and her mom. it was interesting however that I think the author of Twilight must have read this book at some time. they are different stories but certain parts seemed similar. I think if I had been 12 reading this i might have liked it. the only thing I did like was the beginning short story about Simon. that piece was excellent and made me want to cry.

    "Slow but intriguing.."

    Starts off very slowly and not enough energy at first, but author completely regains attention to the story and its characters

    Story
    "A cat named Grimalkin"

    I liked the book, and the narrator did a nice job. I especially liked Simon???s voice, with the cute English accent. But the subject matter of the mom dying of cancer wasn???t what I was looking for. I don???t mind a bleak, dark, brooding vampire novel, especially with all the light fluffy ones out there. But this was a little too melodramatic for me. It was just to close to home, but I should have known better. If only there was a little more romance and a little less time at the hospital, or Zoe waiting for the ???call???! The romance was sweet, and the writing style is beautifully done almost gothic at times. The two short stories included; The summer of love, and The Christmas cat helped in bring more insight into Simon and Zoe??? and I loved the cat???s name Grimalkin.

    I am surprised that The Silver Kiss is not as popular as a lot of YA books out there. It should be.
