Overall I enjoyed the book unlike a lot of the books I read I doubt that this will end up in my read-again pile. Nov 21, Sejla rated it really liked it. I really liked Vampire Beach 1 by Alex Duval. Jason was very noble and courageous because he was on a mission to save his friend from vampires.
The book was very suspenseful because there was always apart where you were hanging off the edge of a cliff. If you love mystery, vampire and romance books, this is the book for you, but read this warning first, the scenes in the book might not be suitable for younger audiences because of the violence and romance in the scences.
May 11, J. Elle rated it did not like it. Is Alex Duval 12 years old? I swear these books were written by a child. They are terrible. Also, I am SO OVER the "I just laid eyes on you for the first time, we're both 17, and I am trembling in an effort not to touch you because we must be together for eternity and I am in the depths of love with you, now, to learn your name". It's unrealistic anyway, so it takes a really talented writer to get it right.
The thing I hate the most about these books is how they end. It's like someone told the a Is Alex Duval 12 years old? Might I suggest that two, in this case, is not better than one and add that I don't think my idea of "seasoned" and Simon and Schuster's idea of "seasoned" means the same thing. I had checked out Vampire Beach: Volume 2 at the same time and I didn't even crack the cover this one was so bad.

The first two books—Bloodlust and Initiation—are included in this omnibus. Jason has just moved to Malibu—home to rich kids and fabulous parties.

It has a strong plot, teenage characters who act like teenagers, a writing style that held me and had enough humour and action in the end. And Initiation was a great sequel, with its strong plot, realistic teenage character, a gripping writing style and funny drama between the characters, but instead of action there was suspense to take over. It's strange the way it compels me to read more and more.
The vampires are obviously the one's to blame for this.

Definitely a different twist on the whole teen vampire thing and from the guy's point of view also. It wasn't a bad book but it wasn't very good either. Too risque for younger YA readers - nothing graphic just a lot of background sex and a whole lot of upfront teen drinking.
I have no interest in finding out what else happens in this series although it was super quick light summer read.
There are better YA paranormal novels out there. Well, our story starts off semi-predictable in the beginning, but after awhile we aren't to sure what to expect or who to trust.

There are these moments where you know exactlty what's going to happen. Then, their are some where just like WHOA!!! Ecspecially when it comes to, Jason and Sienna. They lacked some love near the beginning of the story, but you had these moments that just showed how much they loved each other.

Thank goodness to otherwise without Sienna these Vampire Beach books would be nothing. We have a bit of a cliff hanger ending, though. Which is good and keeps you interested for the next book. This book had love, dark secrets, mystery, supense, and so much more that just grabs you into the book.

Jan 17, Emma BelleBooks rated it it was ok. This is a bind up of the first two books in the Vampire Beach series by Alex Duval. I hadn't heard much about this series, and came across the books while browsing Amazon for some new reads, all the books in the series were going cheap, so I bought them all.
I only gave this book 2 out of 5 stars. As much as I enjoyed the main storyline, I did not think the characters were well enough developed and the plot was a bit sketchy at times. Think of The Hills, then add in vampires. Thats exactly what the This is a bind up of the first two books in the Vampire Beach series by Alex Duval. Thats exactly what the Vampire Beach series is! I had higher hopes for this book bind up, I thought it would be a hidden gem.
I think if more time was spend in character development rather than talking about high school and shopping it may have bee a three star book. Mar 10, Tracey rated it really liked it Shelves: fantasy-and-paranormal , young-adult. This book is the first two novels in the series merged into one. It was a good book and yet was different to read as the main character was male. Most vampire books thses days have female leads. I found this to be a nice change. These books were a great start to the series introducing us to the characters and the story line. The story line is different compared to most vampire novels which is diffently a plus as I love reading vampire books but its nice to have a change from the normal female hu This book is the first two novels in the series merged into one.
The story line is different compared to most vampire novels which is diffently a plus as I love reading vampire books but its nice to have a change from the normal female human falls in love with male vampire or the forbidden love stories. Although the books starts off predictiable that soon turns around once you get into them keeping you hooked and wanting more! I recommend this book to those who are interested in vampire books but wanting a change. I was really surprised how different these books were from Twilight and all the other vampire cliches nowadays.
Actually, the whole vampire issue wasn't that big of a deal. The fact that they were in Malibu seemed to take a much more prominant part of the books, in all honestly.

Another thing surprised me about these books- I actually liked them! Usually I hate books that feature "wild, out-of-control parties, but this seemed to be the exception. I'm now looking forward to reading more of this s I was really surprised how different these books were from Twilight and all the other vampire cliches nowadays.

Nov 11, Jennifer rated it it was ok Shelves: teen-young-adult-whathaveyou , reads. Vampire Beach is Vampire Lite, with bloodsuckers who are - by and large - so barely there you don't even notice them harshing the vibe of the series. And this is largely just high school drama with a soupcon of the supernatural, kept moderately hip through setting and the antics of a cinema freak sidekick who name-drops on demand. Inoffensive, fun stuff, fast-paced, and strongly reminiscent of R. Stine back in the day.
Review stands for first four in series, bound here in two volumes: Vampire Beach is Vampire Lite, with bloodsuckers who are - by and large - so barely there you don't even notice them harshing the vibe of the series. Review stands for first four in series, bound here in two volumes: Bloodlust, Initiation, Ritual, and Legacy. Jun 22, Sophie rated it did not like it Shelves: yaf , paranornal-somthing-or-other , dnf. The only thing I find vaguely interesting is wondering about the gender of this 'Alex Duval' - Jason's protagonist POV is so girly, it surely can't be a man.
The characters were flat and unlikeable, nothing happened except a couple of lame-arse high school parties, and then someone died, but the underwritten chapter cliff-hangers meant that even that was boring. The overly-large font and 2- Wow. The overly-large font and 2-in-1 format should've been a giveaway.
One that has been duly noted. This book was very interesting. What started out as a typical vampire love story changed by the second half of the book. It was an interesting story and it was very likeable, especially since they changed the plot within the story. It wasn't all "must be in the vampire circle" like you would see in most stories, as a matter of fact Jason didn't even want to deal with the fact unless he has to. It is definitly a nice change but I must admit I don't see where else this could go since I'm getting b This book was very interesting.
It is definitly a nice change but I must admit I don't see where else this could go since I'm getting bored already. Jul 06, Nan rated it it was ok Shelves: borrowed. This read like a guy's version of Blue Bloods to me. It's reasonably fun, rather light, and doesn't add all that much to vampire mythology.
The similarities between it and De la Cruz's series largely have to do with the wealthy teens at the heart of the novel rather than any similiarity of mythology. In that regard, Blue Bloods is far superior.
