Ariella Montero sente di essere diversa. Non solo per l'educazione raffinata che ha ricevuto, ma per qualcosa dentro di lei, che scorre potente nel sangue. Ed è proprio sul sangue che suo padre, uno scienziato austero e taciturno, conduce misteriose ricerche. Questo è l'aspetto bello e signorile di Raphael Montero, mai sciupato dallo scorrere del tempo, risveglia in Ariella dubbi e inquietudini: c'è una ragione all'isolamento in cui vivono entrambi? Qual è stata la causa della morte della madre, che la ragazza non ha mai conosciuto? E perché Raphael non appare nella foto che Kathleen, giovane amica di Ariella, gli ha scattato? E poi, un giorno, un brutale omicidio sconvolge la quiete della comunità. Ariella scopre che tutta la sua vita fino a quel momento è stata avvolta nella menzogna: sua madre non è morta ma scomparsa, e lei e Raphael non sono più esseri umani...

I felt that the author's writing in this book was very dry and lifeless, but more than that, the vampire trope was really typical and nothing nobody's seen before in one form or another. Though I did love the characters in this book and the depth of some of them, I really don't think I would ever re Leggi tutto
I don't know why this keeps getting grouped in with Twilight because it's a very different kind of story - and by that I mean The Society of S actually has a positive message for girls. Sure they are both young adult books about vampires. But that's where the similarity ends. The protagonist, 13 yea Leggi tutto
I've read a lot of vampire books--you could say I'm a bit of a connoisseur. So I appreciate a fresh perspective on the idea, which is exactly what Hubbard's book brings. It centers on 13 year old Ariella Montero--delicate and protected from the world by a reclusive father after her mother disappeare Leggi tutto
Environmentalist vampires. That sounded, well, interesting to say the least. The real selling point, though? The hardcover was $5 on the Barnes and Noble bargain rack. Can’t beat that! And I have to say, thank whatever god may exist that that’s all I paid for it. I would have been peeved if it cost Leggi tutto
Raised by her handsome, clever, enigmatic father, Raphael, thirteen-year-old Ariella Montero never knew her mother or why she suddenly left - she only knows how sad her father always is, and that he won't speak of her. Ariella tells her story of growing up in a large, mostly empty mansion, looked af Leggi tutto
For a vampire story, it is pretty slow-paced and uneventful in the way I must have been expecting...I was only partially drawn into this story, it's characters somewhat on the bland vs. alluring side, and perhaps underdeveloped as characters one could empathize with. These vampires can drink scient
So here I present my first review of an audio book! (Cue canned applause)! The audio book of The Society of S came into my possession by accident. I was shopping online at Barnes and Noble, and saw the book in the bargain section, so I ordered it. When it arrived, I realized that I had accidentally o Leggi tutto
♡ 3.5 ♡ Siendo sincera creo que es un libro muy bueno, la autora se alejó en su mayoría de los clichés de vampiros tanto modernos como antiguos. Su narración es precisa, comprensible y rápida de leer. Realmente Raphael me enamoró, tiene una elegancia y presencia muy característica. Ari igual que su pad Leggi tutto
Most boring vampire book I have ever read.
The story starts off and ends with the journal of a child/preteen girl, that finds out that her father is part of a secret society of vampires called the Sanguists. Ariella ( the child) has been raised by her father, thinking that her mother is dead. Ariella who is a loner and home schooled by a loc Leggi tutto
