      I'm re-reading this because I live in a college town, and I need a reminder every now and then that no, I'm not literally stuck in a vortex. I can leave, unlike the characters in Chamber's excellent horror novel. Although there's plenty that's frightening- disappearances, murder, soul-stealing, monsters, and more- perhaps the most frightening of all is the way Chambers captures that moment when we leave college behind for the "real world," and how very ill-prepared so many of us are.

      This was a good horror tale, well written with interesting characters. The narrative dragged in a few places, and the ending was satisfying though it felt a little abrupt. But the plot was compelling enough to make me want to get to the end and find out just what WAS going on in this small "historic" town of Elston. Something with that libraryI downloaded (and will soon read) Ms. Chambers' RATCATCHER based on the sample included at the end of this novel.

      Boring This book would have been 3 stars for me as being mediocre but I gave it less because it was way too long. The main characters were not likable. Ramona is an alcoholic and Heather isn't believable,. I could have cared less about what happened to them by the end. The thought I had at the end of the book was who cares? A waste of time.

      Not for meSlow and confusing, then vampires. This is not my type of book. I'm only adding more words because of the minimum. Don't waste your time.

      I will always love this book for personal reasons. Ms. Chambers writes about a "vortex", an unseen force that keeps the inhabitants of a small college town locked or glued in place. I have lived in a little nightmare just like that. The book is easy to read; the author is worried to a fault the reader might not understand the plot or the characters' motives. However, this makes the book soothing for horror fiction fans coming home from work with a headache. I enjoyed the plot, the romance, and m [...]

      For me, this book was very hard to get into at first. Later into the book I found myself skipping parts of it. I wanted more of an explanation of the "bad guys." I wanted to not roll my eyes and think "of course that happened" at some of the parts, it was very predictable. There was one continuity error that stuck out to me. On one page a character that was there was Dawn, and on the very next page it was Cecilia. I checked a couple of times to make sure I'd read correctly. I can overlook a lot, [...]

      A recommended book for readers interested in a thrilling new-adult novel about a college town with a mysterious and deadly entrapment that never allows its residents to leave. Brighter has a cast of authentic complex characters that are coming to terms with life post graduation in addition to realizing their town and its residents are not what they seem. The prose and pacing create an enjoyable and engaging story. While subtle elements of horror and mystery forge a suspenseful constantly unfoldi [...]

      I kept waiting for it to pick up and get on with the story and then once it did, eh. The story line was choppy and scattered, jumping from one character to another. The ending was anti climatic and left a lot to be desired. I really feel like I wasted my time reading this book. It wasn't the worst book I've ever read but I will not be recommending it to anyone in the future.

      This book seemed to move a lot slower than other books by V.J. Chambers. It was still a decent book, but I like her other novels better.

      I understand cliffhangers, but this was drug out too far and you never really found out anything in the end.
