Author: Amelia Atwater-Rhodes

After a spooky-good start with her first novel, In The Forests of the Night, Amelia Atwater-Rhodes comes out biting with another vampire tale, Demon in My View. This novel one-ups her first attempt by jumping deeper into the "life" of the deliciously dark vamp Aubrey and spinning in a human factor - which just happens to be a teen author. Hmm... Intrigued? You should be.


Jessica's Secrets

Demon in My View introduces Jessica, a seemingly average teen attending Ramsa High School in Massachusetts. Jessica is considered a freak at school - and that's without anyone knowing that she writes best-selling vampire novels. Being a teen author who dreams, and then writes down, the dark history of vampires is not Jessica's only secret... it's just the only one she knows about. There is something in her family history that only vamps like Aubrey (the demon in her view) know about. But - you guessed it - that'll change...


The Bottom Line

Amelia Atwater Rhodes outdoes fellow vampire writer Anne Rice with this deep, riveting tale that's bound to keep ya flippin' pages until the wee hours of the morning (although you'll most likely be under your bed with a garlic necklace.) You seriously won't be able to put down Demon in My View. And the fact that Amelia Atwater Rhodes is a teen writer herself, can't help but make you wonder how much of Demon in My View is fiction and how much is based on Amelia's real life. SPOOKY!


Demon in My View Rating: 5

    • Aubrey is the coolest cuz he's dark and mysterious.
    • I love Risika - she's tough!
    • I prefer the witches, like Caryn.
    • I'll stick with TV vamps like Angel and Spike.

    thanks for posting this Kristen. I think that it is a tough subject to talk about with other people and honestly I think it's good to talk about it in a moderate amount. Now that more pepole are being diagnosed with learning differences or some sort of other mental health disorder, I think that talking about it and informing people will only make it easier for people to feel less awkward or the odd man out. That's how I found about that I am not the only person in the room who has ADD. I'm more willing to come out and talk to people and discribe what I have to go through on a daily basis to raise awareness. School will always be hard for me so I look at my strengths to help push me forward in life.

    Oh wow, a genuine trigger warning. Did the memes teach you nothing?  First off, an actual warning. Take no action based on what you've read here without first consulting a mental health professional.  Now, I have a lot of experience in mental illness. I have ADHD(Pre-DSMV), an anxiety disorder, and I've tested significant for bipolar (Pre-DSMV).  My best advise is to find a therapist that you personally connect with. It's not about being comfortable, because a good therapist will challenge your thoughts, but you need to be able to accept those challenges. And to do that, you'll need a therapist that you mesh with.  Aside from that, good medication can go a long way to helping you live with your mental issues. However, this isn't true for everyone, and it should be handled by a medical professional.
