Simon is one of the undead, a vampire, seeking revenge for the gruesome death of his mother three hundred years before. Does Simon dare ask Zoe to help free him from this lifeless chase and its insufferable loneliness? I loved the character and the story. I wished things ended differently though, but i still love it. This was my 1st ever vampire book i ever read, leading to my quest for more vampire books.
Report this review Comments 0 Was this review helpful to you? February 16, Reader reviewed by melissa this book was confusing. The first review off my blog. February 01, Please excuse me for a moment. I'm about to lose all dignity.
I'm back. I have some dignity again. I'm good. The Silver Kiss is about sixteen-year-old Zoe, whose mother is dying from bone cancer. Zoe isn't dealing so well with that, but who could blame her? Not only is her mother sick, and the doctors allowing Zoe to see her for shorter and shorter, farther and farther apart visits, but her best friend is moving away, her father has basically quit talking to her because all his energy is focused on Zoe's mother, and Zoe is feeling like she's slowly fading away, disappearing.
So one night, she goes wandering and ends up in a little park near her house, where she meets Simon. Simon is our vampire in this vampire story. Don't worry, Ms. Klause tells you this right away, I'm not revealing anything big. He's pale but incredibly handsome in an undead kind of way. And I'm not going to tell anymore or I'll ruin the story, so if you want to know more, you'll have to read the book. This is the part where I tell what I thought of it, right?
Huh, that might be dangerous territory. See above. No kidding, though, I honestly loved it. It's dark, creepy, sweet and Annette Curtis Klause doesn't write like she's aiming at YA readers, she writes like she's just telling the story in her head and who cares if it's not g-rated fluff.
Sore spot, don't get me started on that. Just so you know, though, it is more PG, but there's really nothing inappropriate. It's just a book for mature YA readers. And I don't know about you, but I like that. So put this book on your to-read list, rush out, buy it, beg borrow or Okay, don't steal, but try to get it, because it's amazing. Happy reading. July 13, Reader reviewed by stebat The "Silver kiss" is an amazing book because it touches everybody's feelings, i cried after reading it, it talks about "Zoe", a girl who has been dealing with a lot of drama in her life, her mom was diagnosed with cancer and she's been in the hospital for a long time, her dad while taking care of his wife ignoring his young daughter, and a new boy in her life who by the way is a vampire, and helping him to overcome the power of his evil brother.
Check out the ending of this book! Was it as good as Twilight April 27, Reader reviewed by Kit-Kat But it was a decent book. The plot is simple, and predictable at times, but very interesting. The language is easy to understand and I read it with little difficulty. The characters have little quirks and faults, but they are human ones - even though some of them aren't technically humans - that endear us to them.
There were portions that surprised me, parts where the author came through with surprising originality. I recommend buying it! The Silver Kiss. March 11, Reader reviewed by Lauren I'd really give this book a 4. I recently reread this book, and I tell you, everytime it gets me. I love those forbidden love things. Zoe has her mother's inevitable death looming over her head, Simon is death, but has a mission.
Simon and Zoe work together to kill Simons vampire brother who is resposible for all the murders occuring in their small town.
They find each other and fall in love, I mean who couldn't fall for a vampire kiss???? When Simon completes his mission, he's finally allowed to be free, to wait up for the dawn with Zoe, one last time, and fade into the sunlight without being burned, with an,"I love you Zoe" as he fades. February 13, Reader reviewed by Lauren This book was amazing. A girl and a vampire fall in love, sounds crazy doesnt it, but its not. Its a new version of your typical love story. Boy meets girl, oy falls in love with girl.
You should no doubt read this book, its filled with mystery, emotion, and everything. Writing this review now makes me want to read this book again!! April 12, Reader reviewed by Leah This book defiently pales in comparison to Blood and Chocolate but it was definetly an interesting story. I think that if there was more character developement etc.. It would have been a better read. When an ordinary girl meets a mysterious vampire, they are drawn together and face a difficult friendship.
In the end, you feel really unsatisfied with what happens. For lovers of vampire books. December 17, Reader reviewed by Sara Zoe having a hard time dealing with feeling about her dying mother when she meets Simon. Simon seems to understand the pain of death and loneliness and Zoe's brooding thoughts about her dying mother.
Simon is a vampire, seeking revenge for the gruesome murder of his mother years ago. Does Simon dare ask Zoe to help free him from this lifeless chase and it's intolerable solitude? This book is for lovers of vampire fiction. I'm not going to lie, I didn't think this book was as good as Twilight.
However, I think it is a good story. Zoe's dealing with her mother's death helped me put things into perspective.
The Silver Kiss
He kissed her with the sharp, sleek kiss, the silver kiss, so swift and true and razor sharp, and her warmth was flowing into him Drowning in grief as her mother slips away from life in hospital, Zoe senses an odd bond with the beautiful but strangely frightening boy she meets in the dark one night. But Simon is one of the undead - a vampire. Haunted by a centuries-old search for revenge, he dares to hope that Zoe could be the one he has been longing for - the one who can help free him from his insufferable loneliness A shivery page-turner in which Annette Curtis Klause exquisitely conveys the eternal truths of life, death, and love. I love vampire books. I don't know why I never read this one sooner.
