The written is good but a different style from what I'm used too, which can drag a little. The author is Irish and I read plenty of international authors, so it's not that but his own writing style. The way is set up with all the characters being based on real people is a unique idea and I haven't read anything like it before.
The plot is good. It has the same basic good vs evil magic theme to it.

I'm going to post some of my favorite cover once a week and why I love them
Mortal Instruments and Clockwork Angel
I adore these covers. I love the way they match with the city skyline at the bottom and characters pictures. I like that its just the chest and part of the face of the people so the model's face doesn't mess with the image in my head. Clockwork Angel is similar enough but different since it the prequel series. They're also shiny and look great on the bookshelf.

I really enjoyed this one. It was an easy read.
The plot and set up was good but it dragged a little in the middle. Most of the characters were average, I liked Sam (the dog is pretty awesome too) and the relationships were realistic. The writing was good, not the greatest though. The author did a good job with the backstory of the main characters home planet. The story of the war and everything was the best part and kept me reading, it was a plot driven novel.

Siren by Tricia Rayburn
Betrayed 3 stars
St. Vladimir’s Academy isn’t just any boarding school—it’s a hidden place where vampires are educated in the ways of magic and half-human teens train to protect them. Rose Hathaway is a Dhampir, a bodyguard for her best friend Lissa, a Moroi Vampire Princess. They’ve been on the run, but now they’re being dragged back to St. Vladimir’s—the very place where they’re most in danger. . . . Rose and Lissa become enmeshed in forbidden romance, the Academy’s ruthless social scene, and unspeakable nighttime rituals. But they must be careful lest the Strigoi—the world’s fiercest and most dangerous vampires—make Lissa one of them forever.
