Xoe: or Vampires, and Werewolves, and Demons, Oh My! (Xoe Meyers, #1)Xoe: or Vampires, and Werewolves, and Demons, Oh My! by Sara C. Roethle
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Alexondra Meyers, or Xoe as her friends call her is a seemingly normal teenager who lives with her single mother in a small town, she’s never known her father. Lucy and Allison have been her friends forever and that’s all she needs, she hasn’t been interested in boys or expanding her social circle.

When a new boy enters the cafeteria and stares at the girls Xoe immediately thinks there is something strange about Dan but Allison invites him over to have lunch with the trio. Lucy and Allison then proceed to invite Dan out with them to the movies despite Xoe thinking it’s a bad idea. Things don’t go as planned of course and the girls are introduced to a world they never knew existed outside of the movies.

My first thoughts when starting this book is it reminded me a lot of Twilight which wasn’t bad as I enjoyed Twilight. The girls meeting Dan in the cafeteria at lunch after he had stared at Xoe was a reminder of Bella and Edward but there was no instant attraction, instead Xoe had more of an instant hatred if anything of Dan. Other than the cafeteria scene the story had a complete life of it’s own though.

If it weren’t for a few typos here and there I may of even given this a five star rating. Rather a fun read bringing normal teenagers into the world of supernatural beings of Vampires, Werewolves and Demons. While this didn’t end on a cliffhanger there are more books in the series and would be interested in reading Xoe’s story further some day.

Overall, great, quick read that fans of Twilight might enjoy. The first book is available for free on Amazon for download if anyone would like to check it out.
