I ABSOLUTLY LOVED MIDNIGHT PREDATOR. I THINK ITS THE BEST OUT OF ALL THE BOOKS. I FELL IN A LOVE TRANCE WHEN I READ ABOUT JAGUAR. HE SEEMS SO BEAUTIFUL I WOULD LOVE TO MEET A PERSON LIKE HIM SOME DAY. IF YOU HAVEN'T READ ANY OF HER BOOKS YET YOU'RE MISSING OUT BECAUSE THERE ORIGINAL AND BEAUTIFUL.

Shattered Mirror was the third book of Amelia Atwater- Rhodes that I have read. After reading the other books, I just had to have my hand on the next. This book is captivating because it holds you on with every word wondering what will happen next. I love this book, because it kept wanting to read it in one day, and I believe that this quality makes it a very good book. It had characters such as the dramatic vampire Christopher Ravena, the character we all fell in love with and Sarah Tigress Vida, the witch that loved Christopher but had to walk away from him. The end kept me wanting to know more. Will Sarah go back to Christopher? I guess we will never know.

Amelia Atwater-Rhodes really put out her shining abilities in this intrguing novel! I'd say this is her best novel yet. While I enjoyed Demon In My View and Shattered Mirror, she's brought me into a whole new world of light- or should I say darkness. She's got her talents are being sharpened with every words she writes. I can't wait for the next book!!!

I've read Midnight Predator and can't believe the reviews. Once more every praises the teen writer. I'm sorry but there's a reason that the author's biography is on the back cover, because your supposed to read the story first, then find out about the author.
Midnight Predator is a blantant copy of L.J.Smith's book The Chosen. In The Chosen, young Rachel becomes a vampire hunter after a vampire murders her family. When Rachel finds out about a secret world of human slavery, she goes undercover as a slave and ends up falling in love with one of the vampires. Rhodes's book is an obvious childish attempt to copy it. It's a joke any of her books are considered horror novels, and it's obsurb that people congradulate her for tackling every day issues. Right, because before I go off to school I have to ponder whether or not I should screw a vampire.
There are some reviewers who admit her books are horrid, but then say that they're great because they were written by a girl not old enough to drink.
Sorry, but you review the book, not the author. If you want to read a good book about human slavery, read L.J.Smith's, it's better writing and better charactization.
Perhaps the most disturbing thing is that Rhodes is being compared with Anne Rice because she can copy her style of writing about a vampire's history.
There's no originality in unoriginal cliqued work.

I finished Midnight Predator a while ago and I have to say I didn't like it. There was barely any characterization. The Ravyn character wasn't needed and annoying. In the end I don't understand Ravyn's reasons for associating with the vampire. Also, why would Jaguar fall for Turquoise? It's never really explained and for a place that has such a dark reputation, nothing dark happens. The villian is all talk and absolutely no action. It didn't seem like Turuqoise liked her mother very much.
I think my main problem is that this is a blantant copy of L.J.Smith's The Chosen, a novel about a women who's mother is murdered by vampires. She becomes a vampire slayer and then pretends to be a human slave to get into a human slavery organization. She ends up falling for a vampire. Then again AAR admits that she reads L.J. Smith. It shows.
