I read this fofests in a matter of hours – two or three to be precise. The one who changed me named me Risika, and Risika I became, though I never asked what it meant.

I feel bad giving this book a low rating because I try to be nice to writer’s, as I am one, and in atwater-ehodes author’s defense she was extremely young when she wrote this.

Believing he could help his sister, Risika informs him that she is happy as she is and the story ends.

Return to Book Page. It seems to skip around a lot, but I like it.

Demon in My View It’s easy to read and understand atwatter-rhodes nicely ties vampires myths of old with some myths of new. It’s young adult in the fact that it was written by a young adult. The book is set in and around the author’s home town of Concord, Massachusetts and in the realm of Nyeusigrube.

I think the author did a fantastic job creating a niyht that teens as well as adults will enjoy. And disproving the myths we humans bight out of thin air. I love music, and I love atwatee-rhodes sing, and though I never had the courage or the talent to participate in any of the high school plays as a performer, I en I grew up in Concord, Massachusetts, where I matriculated through the public Concord-Carlisle school district from kindergarten until my graduation in Atwater-Rhodes’ second book, Demon in My Viewwas published in when she was 16 and is the sequel to In the Forests of the Night.


Ca Midway through the Forests, the lead character – Rachel? That being said, at the end of the novel I still feel this compulsion to want to read on. Demerits for attempts at literary pretension without the skillz to back it up.

In the Forests of the Night by Amelia Atwater-Rhodes

Aubrey has been described as having a knife with him at all times that he had taken from a vampire hunter, the knife has magical qualities aemlia the blade that, if it hits the target properly, can kill a vampire. Delacorte Press, a Division of Random House. In the Forest of the Night”.

It’s a rush of less than pages This book has high praise, probably because the author wrote it when she was thirteen. In the original manuscript the character of Ather was to play the antagonist but after the loss of her computer and having to retype the manuscript it was changed to Aubrey, another character in the novel. There is a history between the two that means they cannot tolerate each other, and Risika has already lost a fight to Aubrey once, but to back down would mean showing weakness.

I hadn’t realised the authors age when she wrote the book when I picked this one up. Three hundred years ago she was human. In the Forests of the Night Author s: It is dark and creepy. It atwater-rjodes well received by critics. If one is transformed against their will o they struggle to live, they will make the most powerful of the vampires. This atmospheric, haunting tale marks the stunning debut of a promising fourteen-year-old novelist.


Jan 28 1 10 Jan 17, In the Forests of the Night. Ameoia really nice sweet short read written by a year old authoress. She knows when and when not to do things. By night, she hunts the streets of New York City.

People say he treats all life as a game that must be played—a cruel and deadly game in which whoever is winning makes the rules.

Alexander has the ability to hear people’s thoughts and able to control things, including fire. Three hundred years ago Risika had a family — a brother and a sister who loved her. Risika talks about the sun, religious icons, silver, and decapitation and explains their ineffectiveness quite frankly.

I first read this book right after it came out, and I have to say it changed me. According to Risika, the two have a strong understanding of each other and they keep each other company.

I can’t wait to read about what else these crazy vampires get into Not really compelled to do further reading based on In the Forests of the Nightbut maybe she has a sequel series worth exploring.
