I enjoyed the premise a lot; I’m looking forward to the sequels because it seems like this has the potential to get pretty epic in scope and scenery.

First Bitten (Alexandra Jones, #1) by Samantha Towle
The Originals, the Vampires, the Werewolves I hope we get to see more samaantha it the next book! As for the characters, they tend to be believable, samantah the problem is they’re not always likable.
Nathan tends to drive me crazy; the author tries to pin his inconsistency on his military background, but he honestly just seems like a jerk.
This makes the attraction and particularly the sex scene at the end a bit unbelievable and forced. Alex is very believable – her grief particularly reads very genuinely – but not virst fun to read; her voice gets a little inconsistent sometimes as she talks and switches between the action and the thoughts in her head.
The plot was enjoyable, but it also felt bottom heavy.
Most of the novel focused on Alex not even learning to live with what she is, but learning to live with grief – then the climax of the novel exploded without much buildup to it.
I would have loved to have read more about the fight, more about the backstory, more – just more! Alexandra Jones is going to be a fun author to read, but I think this would have been a better book if it was long enough to tell the whole story.
There is no reason that the main character has to become a hybrid vampire werewolf thing. She could have just as easily been chased by the mafia or some “normal” everyday non-mystical evil and it wouldn’t have changed the point of the story. The actual story though is about a girl who finds herself changed into a vampire-werewolf hybrid creature.
She falls in love with her savior and deals with the fallout of the events that led her into becoming this creature. The thing is, most of the book concentrates on the dialogue between the characters immediately after the main wakes up from being saved. It isn’t until much later into the book, in fact a little toward the last quarter of the book, that the whole vampire-werewolf thing actually starts to get some action.
It’s mostly concentrated on the main character’s feelings over death, her loss of her normal life, and her “slightly steamy” romance. That being said the character interactions are logical. She would feel this way. A girl in her position would think in this manner. She would in fact say things like this Because this is what the book is concentrated on, towlee is the book’s greatest strength.
Sadly, it is also it’s greatest weakness, biten most of the book deals with the emotional drama that the girl goes through, it lacks action.

The characters don’t move around much and nothing gets done physically until later towards the end. The whole thing about her turning into a hybrid becomes nothing more than an extraneous subplot.
Her sadness for the loss of a certain character could just as easily have been caused by that character having been gunned down by a gang or xamantha. There is no specific reason for her to be sad in the paranormal way that it was written. The point of a “paranormal” book, or at least why I read them, is to experience things from a way that would be “normally” impossible for me.
Howle book doesn’t really focus on those experiences. Perhaps I was expecting the whole vampire-werewolf hybrid thing to take center stage. Perhaps I was expecting more descriptions and situations where she had to use her powers. Maybe I was expecting more of an action story.
Maybe that’s why I wasn’t too keen on the biten thing. I had expected a different story because of the way I had interpreted the book description. Anyway, for what it is, it is good. I enjoyed the way it was written. The writing had an easy flow to it that led to un-put-down-able page turning reading.
Which is always good. If you’re looking for some nice slightly risque YA emotional romance and drama, this is a good book for that, plus it also offers a slight paranormal taste to it, but only a pinch. From the first few sentences, I liked the character Alex! She was believable and realistic. We first meet Alex while she is doing the drunken walk home with her best friend Claire after her boyfriend Eddie has cheated on her once again.
Now I know exactly what that’s like; I’ve been in her shoes before. If you’ve read the synopsis, then you know the storyline, so I’m going to skip giving you a summary and move to giving you my thoughts. Alexandra Jones has a lot of inner strength, and it’s a lucky thing that she does as she is going to need every bit of it.
From the moment she wakes up in Nathan’s house saamantha seems like she has one emotional turmoil after the other to deal with.
I found myself wanting to know more of Nathan’s thought and feelings and I wasn’t disappointed as nearing the end we have a whole chapter just from Nathan’s perspective. Throughout the book, you see that Nathan is a very closed off and at times comes off as cold and uncaring. At one moment, I liked him and in the next sentence he really got on my nerves and it seemed like he made Alex feel the same way!
Towle has done an extremely good job with making the side characters just as interesting and enjoyable as Alex and Nathan. I loved Nathan’s younger brother Sol and his easy-going nature and their father Jack, who could only be described as calm, caring and perceptible.
Overall, this was a great paranormal read, which had me shocked and gasping quite a few times throughout the book. There were a few things that niggled me about the book, but that was more about Nathan’s attitude at times and nothing to do with the storyline or writing. The ending leaves no doubt that there will be a second book coming soon and I personally cannot wait! See all reviews.
