Book Review: Two Halves by Marta Szemik

Genre: Young Adult (Fantasy/Paranormal Romance)
Published: November 27, 2011 
Publisher: My Lit Publishing

The Blurb:
 Twenty-one-year-old Sarah is a child of a human mother and a vampire father and has suppressed her dark side with serums. The only memory of her mother is when Sarah killed her, soon after birth. Of her father, nothing—just a hatred for his vampire traits that made her kill her own mother.

When a disturbing nightmare foretelling her bleak future stirs the superhuman traits, underworld creatures are beckoned. On the run with William, a man she knows from her dreams, Sarah tries to learn what’s been hidden from her, for a good reason. Had she known her destiny, she may have continued with the serums that kept her hidden.

My Review:
The premise behind Two Halves was interesting, original, and set a strong foundation for a great story. There were a few issues that kept me from really getting into the story though. The biggest issue being predictability. As I read, it was always obvious what was going to happen next. There were no surprises to really engage me in the reading. Also, some of the logic behind things that happened, the serums, and/or spells were inconsistent and sometimes just didn't make sense at all. The characters were likeable and the romance was full of anticipation. I think there is potential for the next books in the series, and I'm sure there are many who will enjoy this book.
