While it is definitely commendable to get a book published at fourteen, you still have to engage the reader and doing that has no basis on the age of the author. Twilight lovers or vampire, magical being types.

Books by Amelia Atwater-Rhodes. Their powers grow mostly with age, but there is also power from having a traumatic transformation.

In the Forests of the Night was first released in hardcover print on May 11,[1] [2] about a month after she signed her contract. Perhaps it is my story she now writes. How will she become Risika? The first novel gives no reason to continue a story atwater-rohdes yet I want to know. Half-sister of Rachel and Alexander.

It was then that I atwater-rodes began to do creative writing. LitFlash The eBooks you want at the lowest prices. Risika and Aubrey are of the same lineage, and atwater-rhores line is known for their mental abilities. It is the first novel in the Den of Shadows. It’s more about how her past has caught up and she must deal with it.

Oct 10, Kat Zantow rated it really atwater-rhdes it. The glimpses into Risika’s past as she learns to live her life in darkness are much more interesting than the present bits with Aubrey. Kind of disappointing, but it’s held up well by Atwater-Rhodes’ lovely writing.


In the Forests of the Night (Den of Shadows, book 1) by Amelia Atwater-Rhodes

Refresh and try again. Most of the characters were well written, the dialogue was quick and the pace was action-packed yet it still made you think. She has a long rivalry with her blood-brother, Aubrey. The vampires turning into animals was a cool touch but besides that this book was way too full of vampire cliches and frankly that really turned me off.

Wounded once more, Risika takes on the tiger’s stripes in her hair and finds a note with the name “Rachel” written on it and covered with tears. It is only around four dollars and I bought the Kiesha’ra bindup all 5 books and I am excited to read those.

Eventually Aubrey learns of Tora’s existence and in an attempt to get Risika to lay low, he kills the tiger. This book has high praise, probably because the author wrote it when she was thirteen. Risika talks about the sun, religious icons, silver, and decapitation and explains their ineffectiveness quite frankly. It was dark and creepy and scary. Also by Amelia Atwater-Rhodes.

I do not think, but add the black stripes to my own tiger-gold hair. Nevertheless the book was still enjoyable and my favorite parts of the book was the interactions between the protagonist and antagonist. Mostly it just talked about a vampire chick and about her past, how she got turned in to a vampire, and her feud with her arch-enemy, Aubrey.

My non-writing hobbies are eclectic, and cover everything from rather domestic pastimes like cross-stitch and cooking to aquarium keeping, playing piano, gardening, carpentry, Harley-Davidsons, driving, and arguing- there are few things I enjoy more than a good debate with someone who knows how to argue, which might have something to do with a best friend who works in politics.


Maybe it was because it was written in 1st person present tense which isnt a format i really like.

In the Forests of the Night

I felt like I wasn’t getting the complete story and that the book wasn’t really even book. The part with her brother not really dead, well I thought that she was going to tear up and hug him, happy. Three hundred years ago Risika had a family — a brother and a sister who loved her.

I think that the book might have god-modding, meaning that the character s acts like an invincible person. I have strong opinions about literacy, education, and how our thhe systems are treated- strong enough that most of my friends know not to get me started on the subject.

First page in book after the poem.: Then she starts to flash back to when she was alive, years ago. Also it’s a vampire book so obviously there’s going to be blood and themes of death.

This atmospheric, haunting tale marks the stunning debut of a promising young novelist.

What it needed was another character to offset the predator mindset. While this was written years ago and I’m not the typical target audience, yet I still enjoyed this book.
