My rating: 3 of 5 stars
I liked Night Sighs, but I had hoped to love it. It consists of several short stories following the sometimes troubled romance of the beautiful, mortal Alex and Tristan, a vampire blessed with the gift of music and a special talent for attracting danger. I loved the premise, but felt the book fell just short of what I was expecting.
Meade is a great writer with a talent for expression and wordplay. Definitely not a problem there. It was the stories themselves that I struggled with. The stories for me were disjointed, and at times, random. I liked the first story, The Dead Beats. Tristan is HOT and the romance was scorching, which is something that I felt didn’t let up throughout the book, which is good. But the connection between the stories? I just didn’t get it.
The Ancients was quite random and seemed very out of place for this book, but Bourbon & Jazz was pretty cute and filled with a good amount of action. Until My Body is Dust and West of Forever were just not that memorable for me, but nevertheless, I liked this book and will most likely read more from this author if ever given the opportunity.
