The Year of Disappearances by Susan Hubbard

Description from the book:
It was the year of disappearances. The honeybees were the first to go.
Half-human and half-vampire, Ariella Montero has spent her first thirteen years in exile, unable to fit into either of her worlds. After the murder of her best friend, Ari struggles to begin a new life in Florida, but her special talents are severely tested as she moves on--from a vampire community in the Sunshine State to college in Georgia to the primeval maze of the Okefenokee Swamp. One by one, the people and the things she cares most about begin to disappear. And Ari may be next.
In a style that The New York Times calls "minimalism O. Henrified," Hubbard chronicles Ari's mysterious and spellbinding quest, begun in The Society of S, as she contends with the demons and shadows that haunt us all.

My take on the book selection:
This second book in the series was fantastic! I loved the suspense, and even the romance. Its was heartwarming to watch the characters live their lives just like we do. Though being a vampire it is a hard life to live. I was so enthralled by both the first book, and this one, that I can't wait for the next to be written. I want to the story to never end. Quite an entertaining story! It makes you wonder about vampires, and all the different legends surrounding it. While knowing it's just a tale, you secretly wonder what it would be like to have some of the powers vampires have. Truly a fantastic book! I would highly recommend to any one I know!



  1. Okay, I think you've sold me on the series. I'm going to have to go out and find the Society of S first.

  2. cover seems to fit the book

Still, it was kind of cool to reminice about two cartoons from my childhood. So many great actors bring the film to life! What a fun story it was too! Although
