In the Forests of the Night

Enraged and thinking the note a joke, she calls out to whoever left the note but no one answers. Thanks for telling us about the problem. Rachel tries to go after them but Ather grabs her instead and begins her transformation.

It’s a pretty interesting story. Demerits for attempts at literary pretension without the skillz to back it up. Her twin brother had his own struggles issues with controlling his abilities with fire as well as the voices. Three hundred years later, Rachel, now calling herself Risika, has a run-in with Aubrey after accidentally trespassing onto his territory in an attempt to feed, he leaves her another black rose and a note stating, “Stay in your place, Risika.

In this moment I feel like exactly what I am: Tbe she is a vampire, a powerful one. Rachel and her twin brother are close and live happily with their father, step-mother and younger sister.


All in all, this way a good story, and you do get into the world but it leaves you wanting more with no way to achieve that goal. Goodreads just recommended to me a book by Atwater-Rhodes, and I had a forrests to how much I enjoyed this book when I was in middle school. InAlexander makes an appearance in the novel, Persistence of Memory but Risika does not but it is mentioned that there is atwaterr-rhodes issue going on between Risika and Alexander during the events of the novel.

After this she only mentioned one other time in the book, apparently she was looking for Risika and had sent Aubrey to retrieve her but Risika refused to see her. Apparently I liked the book enough to look for it, and I am now in the process of simmering my thoughts about Shattered Mirror, which i finished today. No, what am I thinking? There is barely any plot if any?

I don’t know, nor should I care.

In the Forests of the Night

See all books by Amelia Atwater-Rhodes. In the Forest of the Night contains only pages and those pages are filled with big fonts and lots of white space. And on one hand she did assume she saw him killed, but the reader can still tell he is behind certain things, not Aubrey.

I say this because of the part where Risika ameia Aubrey. It’s a rush of less than pages. To directly quote the book, ‘I am one of them I am also Rachel. I’d say Amelia Atwater-Rhodes is one of my reading guilty pleasures, since she isn’t an amazing writer but her b To be honest, I wasn’t expecting much from this. Perhaps it is my story she now writes. The vampires cannot show weakness, it means you are prey, but neither is willing to just attack so they have to resort to a strange dance and taunts.


Prior to revealing he was alive, Risika believed that Aubrey had killed her brother Alexander, enhancing her hatred for Aubrey. Ather transforms Rachel into a vampire forcing her to feed to live even giving her the name of Risika. I recommend this book for Twilight lovers nibht vampire, magical being types.

Everything is wrapped up with a twist that isn’t explained and didn’t make a lick of sense and, again, the lead character acts oddly and without emotion. Some have said they had trouble following along.

In the Forests of the Night – Wikipedia

The premise is just interesting enough to have me want to see how the second book continues. Three hundred years ago Risika had a family — a brother and a sister who loved her.

The whole book goes back and forth from the present to the past. By night, she hunts the streets of New York City.

Unlike the majority of the vampire heroes today, by the end of the novel Risika doesn’t hate or resent herself.
