BLOODLINE BY KATE CARY PDF

Shelving books is a good way to discover new ones to read, and I picked this one up to read the back cover. My first thought was that this was another of those books getting in on the vampire trend in YA, and that turned me off. I had read Dracula for fun the summer before, and loved it, so My interest was piqued. Hesitantly, I decided to read it during my lunch breaks. The story was compelling, the characters were engrossing, and Cary manages a feat only one other author has been consistently able to pull off in successfully misdirecting me and doing it in a fun way the other was J K Rowling, so I think that says something.

Those are more lucrative, so guess which she spends most of her time on? The plot is paced very well, and the characters, as I said, are very engrossing Mary starts off very idealistic, but her opinions change by the end of the second book.

I found myself developing crushes on some of the male characters--heh heh! The soldiers are treated as individuals; Mary transcribes letters to sweethearts for some of them, or bonds with favorites, or watches them grow quiet when asked about their experiences. She talks about soldiers suffering from "shell-shock" what they called PTSD at the time , people at home losing loved ones overseas, and the darkness of the violence the soldiers encounter in the trenches as represented by the cruelty of Quincy Harker, who tells us that the bloodshed is perfect for complementing and disguising his vampiric tendencies.

A generic, "war is horrible", something about the darkness of humanity, or the nature of evil, perhaps? Is all this talk of how horrible the war is just there to add to the horror element of the book, or increase the feeling of evil?
