Biografia breu
Jennifer Armintrout was born on 15 July 1980. She has been obsessed with vampires since age four, and her first crush was on Vincent Price. Raised in an enormous Catholic family, Jennifer attributes her interest in the macabre to viewing too many funerals at a formative age. Her debut novel, Blood Ties Book One: The Turning made the USA Today Bestsellers list in 2006. When not writing, she can be found in front of the Playstation. She resides in Grand Rapids, a small, rural community in Michigan, with her husband and children.



Prelim Review: In a rare moment for me, at least as far as romances go, I didn't want the main characters to get together in this book. Its not that I didn't think they suited each other, they did in a weird way, but I wanted to see more of their fighting and bickering and awkwardness. By the end of AMERICAN VAMPIRE I was left feeling vaguely disappointed by the turn of events.

Queene of Light is the first book in Jennifer Armintrout’s new series Lightworld/Darkworld. This time she focuses more on Fae creatures and the Faery Court than vampires, however (which suits me fine).

The book begins with Ayla in the middle of an assignment tracking a werewolf through a disgusting, stinky sewer. Armintrout does a very good job of setting atmosphere throughout the entire book—from the dank, dreary, and stench-ridden Darkworld to the only slightly better-off Lightworld—visually. Actually, I thought I could smell the sewers that are Ayla’s home at one point.

The world Armintrout builds is just this side of desperately bleak. Between the denizens of the Lightworld (who seek to re-take the above from humans by any means necessary) and the inhabitants of the Darkworld (who at least don’t want to eradicate humanity, but are nasty critters in a multitude of other ways), hope seems to be as foreign as sunlight. Selfishness, greed, violence, hatred...these emotions drive most of the characters’ actions.

Ayla and Malachi's relationship begins rocky, continues to be pretty rocky and manages to smooth out just enough so that they're not at each other's throats, at least. They don't go from enemies to "'Oh, my God, I love you!" quickly (thank goodness). In fact, Malachi spends a good deal of his time away from Ayla devising ways to kill her with his bare hands, and Ayla alternately hates him and feels guilty over his condition.

My favorite character, hands down, is Keller. He is a Bio-Mech (a human that believes that a body's everything can be easily interchangeable with mechanical parts...pretty much a cyborg, but seems to be more a way of life/belief) and helps Malachi out. He’s just plain fun—takes the world as it is and makes something from it. I wouldn’t say he’s an optimist, but he’s a good deal happier than almost every other character we meet.

A good start to the series, I’m eager to find out the consequences of the final chapter and see where the future shall bring Ayla (nowhere comfortable and happy, I’m willing to bet).

No soy una cobarde. Quiero dejar eso perfectamente claro. Pero después de que mi vida se transformara en una película de terror, ahora me tomo el miedo mucho más en serio. Hace ocho meses, por fin, me convertí en la doctora Carrie Ames. Después, un vampiro me atacó en el depósito de cadáveres del hospital. Ahora soy una vampira y resulta que tengo un lazo de sangre con el monstruo que me convirtió. Y, claro, es uno de los vampiros más terribles de la Tierra. Con mi creador empeñado en hacer de mí una asesina despiadada, y su enemigo declarado dispuesto a exterminarme, las cosas no podrían ir mucho peor… si no fuera porque me siento atraída por los dos. Por si fuera poco, los dos son mis creadores, porque he bebido de la sangre de ambos. Beber sangre, vivir como un demonio inmortal y ser una especie de títere entre dos facciones de vampiros enfrentadas no es exactamente lo que me había imaginado para mi futuro. Pero, como mi padre solía decir, la única forma de vencer al miedo es enfrentándose a él. Y eso es lo que haré.… (més)
