If only because Solace's group of friends were meant to be street kids and vagrants and yet their dialogue was more befitting a high tea luncheon. I was also a tiny bit concerned with the very liberal portrayal of underage drinking, drug taking and general aimlessness. I'm not sure at this point if I'll check out book two. The writing as I've stated was incredible. That and the concept of the Rare has carried this book past the neutral rating mark. I'm not sure if I'm invested enough in the story to overlook the lackluster cast though. Feb 01, Donna rated it liked it Shelves: She was home schooled and spent much of her time by herself growing up, not having any real friends.
During all this time she always knew she was different from the other kids because of her mysterious food allergies, low tolerance for the sun and special abilities. Solace suspects that she's a vampire. The day before her birthday, Solace feels the urge to leave My Rating: The day before her birthday, Solace feels the urge to leave the group home after several mysterious messages saying "You don't belong here" and a harrowing experience with a man who instills fear in her without even seeing his face.
So for the first time ever, Solace leaves the only home she has ever known on her seventeenth birthday. Solace soon runs into a group of misfit teenagers at a club in downtown Sydney, and she ends up staying with them at an abandoned warehouse. Solace soon begins to realize that her new friends may just be as different as she is, thus begins her journey into new friendships, self discovery, and the excited world of the Rare. One of those times is when she meets her new friends and takes up with them immediately, I felt she was entirely too trusting with them. But by the end of the novel I did find myself liking Solace a lot more.
I liked the eclectic cast of supernatural characters, who all had their own quirks and gave the story a sense of Alice in Wonderland feel, which I found to be entertaining. Even though the beginning was slow, I just loved the the ending. The end left me feeling absolutely thrilled about where this series is heading.

Jul 20, Chris rated it liked it Shelves: I think I would've enjoyed this more if I was younger, for it is very much a young adult novel. For an adult the actions of the characters don't always make sense, and the character development in terms of some characters is weak. It is hard to feel anything for any of the characters. Now that is the bad part - the good part is the world building in terms of powers is well done - even if Solace seems to have too many.
It is awesome beyond worlds that the chosen one is a girl.
The interactions bet I think I would've enjoyed this more if I was younger, for it is very much a young adult novel. The interactions between the friends read and sounded like interactions between friends. Jul 27, Jenny rated it really liked it Shelves: Twilight meets Supernatural meets Heroes meets This one really does have it all. Thankfully I was blessed with a rainy day and had nothing better to do than read. Solace Morgan is a vampire. She has suspected this for some time; growing up, she knew she was different giv Twilight meets Supernatural meets Heroes meets She knows nothing of her parents, or lineage having been raised in a group home for kids no one wants.
But on her seventeenth birthday all that will change. As Solace learns they are all members of a select group called the Rare, individuals with extraordinary talents: But as she soon learns, there are others who have been watching and waiting for her, others who have absolutely no regard for her well-being. It is also a story about our own true nature: Or is she, and we, little more than pre-programmed flesh and blood machines set to follow a pre-determined path no matter how destructive? Through her well-crafted narrative she creates a sense of menace and mystery that is threaded through even the more light-hearted scenes.
Her characterisation, too, is excellent. Foz Meadows is a name to watch. Mar 05, Roslyn rated it it was amazing. First novel I think by an Australian writer. Takes the theme of super-persons in our midst, including vampires, psychics and people with other gifts, and mixes it with magic, coming-of-age and identity angst, and comes up with an immensely readable and original read. I did find it hard at first to differentiate some of the secondary characters, but by the end of the book they emerged as clear identities.
I found the main character likeable and intriguing. The book ends on a cliffhanger and I c First novel I think by an Australian writer. The book ends on a cliffhanger and I can't wait to to read the second one. It might have a special dimension of interest for Aussies and people interested in Australia, as it's set in Sydney.

Jan 09, Tara rated it it was ok Shelves: The only reason it has two stars is because of the fact that I found it interesting. If the standard of writing had been better it would have been around a low four star. Instead, I found myself drawn to read more, only to be confused by muddled sentence structure and clumsy, fanfiction-esque descriptions and it felt as though it had too much going on at once. I might start the second in the series in hope that Foz Meadows improves, seeing as I'm genuinely interested in what happens next, but if The only reason it has two stars is because of the fact that I found it interesting.
I might start the second in the series in hope that Foz Meadows improves, seeing as I'm genuinely interested in what happens next, but if the quality of writing stays like this I doubt I'd finish it. Mar 24, Yvonne Boag rated it liked it Shelves: Solace runs away from foster care and finds a group of people with unique abilities just like she has. But who is after her and where does she come from? More fantasy then supernatural and a good read. Feb 03, Petra rated it it was amazing.
An utterly awesome book full to the brim with deceit, betrayal action and the lingering hint of love. Its a must read for certain. Itll grip your heart and refuse you the ability to put it away. Has a great lead up to book number 2. I've already read it 2Times. May 17, Emiri Tachibana rated it it was amazing Shelves: Waited ages for the second one though Jan 01, Mima rated it it was ok Shelves: This was reasonably well written, but I just found it so hard to keep reading it, like it was dragging on and on and on Mar 30, Marta rated it it was amazing.
Jan 06, Anna rated it liked it. This was an interesting book and a great experiance. A YA vampire book concentrated not on romance, but on the search for identity. I enjoyed it probably more than the amount of stars indicates. Feb 18, Beth rated it it was ok. Serviceable, and some nice concepts, but I have absolutely no urge to read more.
Feb 10, Kat at Book Thingo rated it liked it Shelves: The beginning of the novel is a little drawn out and seems to go nowhere for a while. I was more interested in the relationships between Solace and her friends. Meadows allows them all to wield power over the course of the story, but I was left wanting more! Although now that I think about it, this is a very effective ploy to entice me to read the next book.
I love, love, love them! And this is where the book turns around for me, from being so-so to a must-read-the-sequel-now. Meadows also hints at undiscovered powers, not just for Solace, but for the others. Actually, I think it was the cranky cat with a swan fetish that really sold the book for me. You can read my full review at Book Thingo. Sep 20, Lisa rated it liked it Shelves: A very different reading experience from what I was expecting.
It was more "edgy" and dark, for one thing, and gave me a glimpse into what I can only imagine life on the streets for a young person is like. One thing that struck me is that a lot of the events in the novel happen to the characters rather than them causing things to happen, so it often seemed as if I was on a bit of a roller-coaster with things appearing in my line of sight that I had not seen coming and couldn't predict.
Love on the Cape, an On the Cape novel by M.K. Meredith
That the ch A very different reading experience from what I was expecting. That the characters had little clue how to deal with these events was also unsettling. And yet at other times, and I'm thinking in particular of how she discovered her parents and her mother's diary, Solace behaved in a way that went far beyond what I would have expected of her. That there was no precedent for it was also unsettling. Still, it was a very good read, it was certainly very different from most of the other paranormal series out on the market at the moment, and I will be looking forward to reading the second book.
May 22, Kalliste rated it really liked it Shelves: I'm finding this book quite hard going at the moment. It is interesting but I can't seem to care about Solace. I think I'll enjoy her friends more. If I hadn't read other peoples reviews about this book I'd probably put it down right now But that is ok, I rarely ever like a main character but prefer the supporting characters because they are usually more likeable and less whiny.
Probably because you don't have to read all of thei I'm finding this book quite hard going at the moment. Probably because you don't have to read all of their thoughts. I wish that the other characters had been explored more, especially Harper and Laine. What are their backgrounds? I hope this is revealed in the other books in the series.
Overall, beautifully written and suspenseful just not the beginning, try and work past the beginning and I can't wait for the next one. Jan 11, Anna Hepworth rated it liked it Shelves: Lots to like about this, plot that had a decent amount of complexity, and the world building is fabulous. Unfortunately, it reads like it really needed another edit - sections were sufficiently confusing that I had to read them through more than once to try and work out what was going on.
I'm not convinced about the characters, but then I wasn't particularly keen on teenagers when I was one, a story full of slightly odd individuals didn't improve my perceptions of them. But to put this in context Lots to like about this, plot that had a decent amount of complexity, and the world building is fabulous.
