Fatal Infatuation (Volume 1 - ALMOST HUMAN - The First Trilogy) (Book) - 4/22/2009 3:44:47 PM
LOVED, LOVED, LOVED IT !!! I just finished the first volume in this series and have no doubt been bitten. Now I'm totally addicted to the Almost Human venom ;) This book kept me reading until the wee hours of the morning just to see what happened next. Melanie Nowak has created a wonderful world that is all her own, while merging many different genres in the process. She is now one of my favorite authors. It's obvious she took great care in developing the plot and characters (Cain, Felicity, Ben, Allie, Sindy, etc...) under a plethora of wit and imagination. So if you love vampires, romance, mystery, humor and suspense you've certainly come to the right place. My best friend is now reading the trilogy and I've recommended it to some fellow classmates. I'm really looking forward to continuing this great roller coaster ride with all it's twists and turns. Buy all three volumes, you won't be disappointed !!!

Evolving Ecstasy (Volume 3 - ALMOST HUMAN - The First Trilogy) (Book) - 4/2/2009 8:47:42 AM
Reader reviews(as viewed on Amazon) ------------------------------------------------------------------------ ***** What A Ride!, February 25, 2009 By Vamp Vixen (USA) This book is like an emotional rollercoaster! So many great moments and at times heartwrenching - but you come out riding a high. There are many unexpected twists and turns along the way - and even the ones I expected were amazing and emotional to read. These books really bring you in close to the characters and touch your heart. Plenty of action, some really steamy romance and some very thought-provoking, touching moments that really stay with you. A nicely done ending to the trilogy! Also leaves some very interesting paths to explore for the next book in the series, with a great tag at the end for book 4. I can't wait! ------------------------------------------------------------------------ ***** Wow! What a shocker!, February 14, 2009 By Mandy Goldstrich Pavuk - I just finished reading all three of these Almost Human books. Amazing. You have to read them in a row to get the complete picture. Comparable to Stephanie Meyer. ------------------------------------------------------------------------ ***** I couldn't stop reading!, December 30, 2008 By NeverSleepsaWink ;) " <3" (CA) This book became an addiction. So well written, almost as If I were there. I could picture everything, and only wanted to read more. This author is obviously talented. I'm one of those people who aren't easily entertained...this book was wonderful. There was never a dull moment. I'm on to book #2, I know it will be equally as great. Hopefully by the time I'm done reading #3, #4 will be released. Please make a #4! :) ------------------------------------------------------------------------ ***** WOW - Coudn't put it down, October 4, 2008 By Micheal Cleggett "Book Crazy" (Lakewood,CA) Wow, is really all I can say. I really enjoyed reading this book and can't wait for the continuation!!!. ------------------------------------------------------------------------ Reader reviews of the ALMOST HUMAN 3 book series (as viewed on Amazon) ------------------------------------------------------------------------ ***** AMAZING!!, March 26, 2009 By Amber Smith (alabama) These books are absolutley AMAZING!!! I have been caught up on the Twilight bandwagon for so long and have been unable to find ANY books that caugt my interest, until now!!! Melanie Nowak is a wonderful author, and she has made it SO easy to LOVE the characters she created!! These books are a MUST READ!!!! ---------------------------------------------------------------------- ***** So GREAT!, March 23, 2009 By regina (Texas) I just finished volume 3 and can't wait for volume 4. It was so good and addicting. I even read it while running on the treadmill tonight because I just couldn't stop!!! So glad it's coming out in print because those who don't have a kindle or don't have the kindle app on iphone will surely enjoy it! Great writing, very creative, and totally awesome! ---------------------------------------------------------------------- **** Worth the read, March 7, 2009 By T. Bergen "tbergen" (Sussex, NJ United States) First let me say that I really enjoyed this story and will be looking for the next installment...hopefully sometime this year. Without giving away too much, I was satisfied with the choice made for the main characters at the end. I did enjoy Twilight, but those characters were a little too perfect sometimes. The Almost Human characters are not perfect, the vampires are not nearly as invincible...and the content is more satisfyingly adult if you get my drift. Not to the other extreme of the Trueblood series, but just right. If you like vampire lore, you will enjoy these novels. ----------------------------------------------------------------------- ***** Awesome stories... Can't wait for the next one, February 8, 2009 By Crystal Rose "Everyone needs a good book now ... (New Jersey) I really enjoyed this 3 book series!!! I love all the characters, and the way Nowak intertwined them all. I adore Felicity and Cain's character and feel that Nowak wrote each character beautifully (The innocence of Felicity and the "heart" of Cain... Just great). I thought the friendships between Felicity and Ben/Ally were so pure and true. The instant connection between Felicity and Cain was a pure delight to read. The struggles that Cain dealt with within himself seemed real and heartfelt. Even Sindy's character along with her all of her minions were great.Arif was a very interesting character and I really help we hear more from him in the next set of books.All in all I am happy with the way the books turned out. ------------------------------------------------------------------------ ***** Love this unique new series!!!, January 22, 2009 By Vamp Vixen (USA) I really love these books! The characters and dialogue are very realistic and textured. They're light & fun, but can also be deep & emotional in an unexpected way. It's really a trilogy, where one storyline is stretched over the 3 books, so you have to read them all - but it's well worth the read! It's very nicely developed and I liked the unusual pacing. Everything felt right without being predictable - and even things I expected, were done in a way that surprised me! Great books! I'm excited to read book 4 - I hope it comes out soon! ------------------------------------------------------------------------ ***** Very enjoyable read!, January 14, 2009 By H. Watson "mom" (Bel Air, MD) This is a great series. I got hooked on the Twilight series and wanted more vampire romance when I stumbled upon this new author. While this series is very different than the Twilight books, if you liked them, there is a good chance you'll like these as well. Once I started reading I just couldn't stop! I highly recommend these books and am looking forward to #4! ------------------------------------------------------------------------ ***** Who needs sleep or T.V.?, January 8, 2009 By NeverSleepsaWink ;) " <3" (CA) It takes a lot to fully grab my attention. Thanks to this wonderful series of books I've not watched my favorite T.V. shows nor have I slept. LOL! Its been a long time since I've read a great book. All of the books in this series were equally great. Buyer beware these books are addicting! Of course its a great addiction! Melanie Nowak is a great writer, very talented. I know everyone could relate to the characters, and the stories were very realistic. Melanie Nowak knows how to paint a picture into the readers head. I'm anxiously waiting for #4. I was so sad to end my last book, and am looking forward to her next great works! ------------------------------------------------------------------------ ***** Great new author of Vamp Romance! , January 8, 2009 By raeve (tulsa, ok) Ms Nowak's stories relate the lives of vampires to the human world with such empathy through the eyes of lovable characters: Cain, a centuries old vamp with a mission of good, even when he struggles with the monster within. And Felicity, an innocent and smart young woman who befriends Cain and awakens the fire within. Throw in some intriguing characters from both worlds to surround them all and you're in for the night! I hope these get published soon so everyone can enjoy! Personally I can't wait for Volumes 4-6... ------------------------------------------------------------------------ ***** Sooooo addictive!!, January 6, 2009 By Katie (Florida, USA) I just want to say that if you're looking for a GREAT and EXTREMELY ADDICTIVE new vampire series to read then this is it!! I was looking for a good vampire series to read after I read the Twilight Saga and this surpassed what I was looking for...I would even dare to say that it was better since Twilight is very PG in terms of romance and leaves you wanting a little more. Melanie Nowak definitely has a cult following that is growing everyday...I wouldn't be surprised if she gets alot more attention in 2009. ------------------------------------------------------------------------ ***** FANTASTIC, SUPERB, A MUST-READ, December 20, 2008 By Chanon M. Wolver "chanonwithac" For anyone who likes/loves Twilight, or even those of you who have never heard of Twilight, this series is a MUST!! The characters suck you in, the plot twists you around and the end leaves you wanting for more. I would buy a Kindle just to read this series. I truly cannot wait for the next chapter in the series! ------------------------------------------------------------------------ ***** Truly GREAT!! , November 6, 2008 By sherri "UrbanLove" (usa) This is just a yummy series. I found myself really getting lost in it which is how I rate a truly great story.. After Twilight, few Vampire series have held a candle to it for me.. But this one I have to say almost gave me more satisfaction... Has everything you could want really... I was sad when it came to an end.. I just wanted more! Its a MUST READ!! :-) ----------------------------------------------------------------------- ***** Simply Fascinating, November 8, 2008 By Ariel Danielle Arias I have read this series twice now and its still amazing! Honestly These are truely great books! If you love paranormal romance, or a vampire lover such as myself, you cannot go wrong with these books! ------------------------------------------------------------------------

Lost Reflections (Volume 2 - ALMOST HUMAN -The First Trilogy) (Book) - 4/2/2009 8:46:39 AM
Reader reviews(as viewed on Amazon) ------------------------------------------------------------------------ ***** An Amazing Journey, February 25, 2009 By Vamp Vixen (USA) I really enjoyed this book! Lost Reflections picks up right where Fatal Infatuation left off, but definitely has it's own 'flavor'. I love how it continued the story, but also added in some exciting historical background for Cain! There is a lot more action in this book and things heat up well past the YA level of the last one. Although Cain & Felicity are the stars of the story, I love the 'ensemble' feel of the book. The characters are all so unique and yet they mesh so well together. In this book it was fun to see them interact - especially when there's tension & drama. Some of the dialogue is just LOL delicious! ------------------------------------------------------------------------ Reader reviews of the ALMOST HUMAN 3 book series (as viewed on Amazon) ------------------------------------------------------------------------ ***** AMAZING!!, March 26, 2009 By Amber Smith (alabama) These books are absolutley AMAZING!!!

Fatal Infatuation (Volume 1 - ALMOST HUMAN - The First Trilogy) (Book) - 4/2/2009 8:45:20 AM
Reader reviews(as viewed on Amazon) ------------------------------------------------------------------------ ***** Addictive Fun & Deeper than you expect, February 25, 2009 By Vamp Vixen (USA) I already left a review for these books on the "Complete Trilogy" page, but after a re-read I wanted to come back and leave a review for each book separately, because I am really impressed! I enjoyed this book even more the 2nd time around. I love how the characters feel so real to me, they are well rounded and really ring true as people. There are so many layers to this book! At first it seems just very light and fun, and you think you know just what to expect from the story - but you get so connected with Cain & Felicity that it's engrossing, and then the story does start to surprise you. The second time around especially, I started to notice some deeper insights behind things. Honestly, I think that books 2 & 3 are even better than this one, but I had to give Fatal Infatuation 5 stars because it drew me in and had me spellbound and wanting more! Definitely worth getting emotionally invested in! ------------------------------------------------------------------------ ***** I couldn't stop reading!, December 30, 2008 By NeverSleepsaWink ;) " <3" (CA) This book became an addiction.
