The Silver Kiss is Most Excellent! To me, this is almost the perfect vampire romance/non-romance. More importantly, it is about facing death, facing life, facing evil. It is about choosing life.

Zoe is perhaps too wise for her years, but I think that comes when loving with a family member who is suffering and facing death. Perhaps that is what made it resonate with me in a year when the news is filled with illness, suffering, and death.

Simon is a vampire who is over 300-years old. Simon wants revenge on a vampire who killed his mother and continues to delight in killing others. When he was turned, he was probably an appropriate age to court Zoe.

I liked this book because Simon knows that his life is too dark to ask anyone, even Zoe, to share it. And Zoe learns and grows throughout the book. And the ending ... well, I leave it to you to discover.

While it was written for young adults, I highly recommend it for anyone who likes a touch of horror in their vampire novel. ( )

I read this story YEARS ago. I remember staying up all night to finish it at the age of 12 or 13. I remember my mother coming in the kitchen seeing me crying my eyes out. You never forget a book that made you cry. I gave this book four stars because although it was good, I felt like there needed to be more of a balance. I needed more light to peek out through all that darkness - that's mainly a style choice. ( )

I read this book in middle school. Annette Curtis Krause and Amelia Atwater-Rhodes catapulted my reading into adventures that I will never forget.

16 year old Zoey is trying to cope with the grief of losing her mother to cancer. Simon is a vampire seeking revenge for the death of his mother 3 centuries prior. They team up to get Simon's revenge. Midnight rendezvous, fighting, grief, isolation, love. This beautiful story unfolds way too shortly making you hope another 200 pages are just going to magically appear. ( )

I love vampire books. I don't know why I never read this one sooner. I"m glad I bought the copy that has the two short stories added. I like that the vampire Simon had a soft spot for cats.

I liked this book a lot. I couldn't put it down. I like that Simon is like the old vampires. He doesn't sparkle. He's not moody and depressing. I fell in love with him. I would love to meet Simon.

The story makes me sad. It had a happy-sad ending. If that makes sense. But I wished it had an all happy ending.

I feel bad for Zoe, although I wasn't really attached to her as much, but her life definitely sucked. Losing a best friend, her mother dying and her father isn't talking to her. Sucks a nut.

I want to read more about Simon and his life before he met Zoe. ( )

Senza dubbio questo è un libro per ragazzi di una certa fascia d'età e con determinate aspettative nei confronti di un libro fantasy.
Io, nonostante ciò, mi sono ritrovata in più punti a commuovermi. I temi trattati sono molto 'umani', cupi e tristi che finiscono per usare il fattore 'paranormale' solo come espediente per affrontare tematiche generalmente tutt'altro che piacevoli. Breve e scorrevole è un romanzo che si legge tutto d'un fiato, che commuove e che soprattutto fa pensare. Ben lontano dal commerciale Twilight dato che è stato scritto più di 10 anni fa (1990) ritroviamo la protagonista Zoe a far i conti con la malattia terminale della madre e con il senso di abbandono e rabbia verso un padre così preso dal dolore e dal compito di 'accudire' la malata che spesso dimentica quale siano le esigenze di una 'figlia'. Su questo sfondo viene affrontato un altro tema ovvero il distacco dalla propria amica del 'cuore' ed il mutamento irreversibile della pripria 'realtà'. E mentre Zoe lotta per non farsi sommergere dalla marea degli eventi che la stanno affondando fa la sua comparsa Simon, un vampiro. Certamente la scrittrice avrebbe potuto approfondire decisamente di più la storia ma, come già detto, questo è un libro pensato per dei ragazzi quindi ci sta bene la 'velocità' del romanzo che colpisce e scuote la mente scivolando via verso una fine, per una volta, non scontata ed abbastanza dura da non rovinare il suo intento.
Decisamente un bel romanzo. ( )
