Bloodlust | Book by Alex Duval | Official Publisher Page | Simon & Schuster
Determined to enjoy his almost postcard-perfect new life, Jason tries hard to ignore the many strange things going down in DeVere Heights. But then a girl washes up dead the morning after one off-the-hook party — and with no explanation but a suspicious-looking bite mark. Now Jason has to admit that what you don’t want to know can hurt you.

Mar 15, Zyra rated it really liked it Shelves: Feb 08, Wren [t he y] rated it liked it Shelves: This review can also be found at http: Jason has moved to Malibu and starts attending a new high school where he makes friends quickly and meets Sienna; hot, popular and taken.
With a new crush and invitations to parties, things seem to be going fairly well for Jason. That is, until someone turns up dead.
When one of Jason’s new friends reveals his crazy theory about the student’s death, that she was killed by a vampire, he’s skeptical but wary. But as the eviden This review can also be found at http: But as the evidence begins to add up, Jason learns that there’s something dangerous in Malibu, and everything is not as it seems. I think the best way for me to sum up my feelings concerning this book is that it was enjoyable, but it wasn’t memorable. It’s an easy, quick read, but it’s not the kind of book that you’ll be recommending to all your friends, rushing out to get the sequels or hoping that it becomes a movie.
This is the kind of book that you read after you’ve read a long novel or you’ve just finished a series. It’s a fill-in book, something to entertain yourself with while taking a break from a regular reading schedule or a big to-read pile.
The characters weren’t all that special, they were pretty flat and stereotypical. However, they did make the story move forward effectively, albeit predictably. Jason was a likeable main character because he seemed like a decent guy, but there was nothing really unique about him. He didn’t really stand out from the crowd or make an impression like some characters in other books. The plot overall was really predictable, except for near the end where there was a twist.
I thought it was a pretty good ending and a decent twist, however I wish that there had been more evidence or foreshadowing leading up to what happened. I don’t really like it when twists seem random, or when clues only appear near the end of the book. I like to be able to guess, and this book didn’t really fulfill that for me. While this doesn’t really stand out from the rest of the YA books I’ve read, I do recommend it for fans of vampires and YA novels. If you’re looking for a short read or a break from long, intricate books, you may want to give this one a try.
Dec 05, Izzy Nickole added it Recommends it for: Vampire Beach Bloodlust is a supernatural mystery, set in Malibu, California. Alex Duval makes you feel as if you are there with the main character, Jason, as he tries to begin a new life in Malibu. Jason Freeman and his family moved, at the end of the summer, to Malibu, California from Fraster, Michigan.
Jason was hoping for an adventure, what he got was more than he hoped for. When Jason goes to school he notices all the kids looked perfect and unreal. He describes them duvall having: Adam is a director, in some ways. He loves to film duva to watch movies. One day at a party, Adam was filming and saw something he should not have seen. He saw a vampire blooxlust, and without thinking Adam filmed it. Adam asked Jason for his help and showed him the tape of the vampire feeding.
Jason later finds out bloodluat there is not one but several vampires, in Malibu. Now Jason and Adam are trying to find the killer. Will they find him or be killed in the process? Feb 27, McKenzie Templeton rated it really liked it. I’ll agree with some of the other reviews I’ve read.
Yes it’s simple, yes there’s nothing extremely differentiating between this novel and other vampire fiction and nothing really unique about it, but I did enjoy it. The plot, like I’ve said, was very simple and expected. It is much like every other vampire novel out there. The greatest difference, however, is that the main character is a male, and making it even more unusual, the girl he is crushing on is the vampire. Usually in vampire novels, I’ll agree with some of the other reviews I’ve read.
Usually in vampire novels, I am struck with crazy hormonal teenage aelx swooning over a big strong boring male vampire, which usually results in a boring and two dimensional romance. However, I was pleasantly surprised at this change in roles.
Getting to experience this duvla of view was quite nice. I also loved several little features in this novel: And oh boy, how do I love the main character’s best friend who is film-obsessed and always has a camcorder in hand. Sounds like my kind of guy.
The duvak was nice. It was flowing and really grabs your attention. It’s very fun and light, and really holds your attention. I know I was addicted to it and couldn’t wait to see duvzl happened next. There was several plot twists and turns that I didn’t see coming and that only grabbed my attention more. Overall, I see a lot of promise for this series and I will continue to read it.
It’s very entertaining so far and I cannot wait to see what happens next. Oct 05, Leigh Collazo rated it did not like it Shelves: More reviews at http: First let me just say that I am totally over the vampire craze, even if my students are not. Last week, I was shelving books in my library and I came across this one. Being in a middle school, I started wondering why I ordered a book titled Bloodlust with a large martini on the front cover.
Xlex I looked in Titlewave for reviews and grade level recommendations, there were More reviews at http: When I looked in Titlewave for reviews and grade level recommendations, there were none. My library is new, and I ordered every single book in there. I am not sure what possessed me to order this one.
With no professional reviews to go on, I needed to familiarize myself with the content, so I took it home. Of course, as teen in the late 80s and early 90s, I was obsessed with and have seen The Lost Boys more times than I could possibly count. I even had the movie soundtrack, which was one of my favorite albums in 9th grade.
Vampire Beach 2-in-1 bind up Bloodlust & Initiation
So, for adult readers, Bloodlust will evoke nostalgia for those bygone days of bloodthirsty teen vampires and gorgeous rich kids frolicking on California beaches. I like that the book is short and simply written, blooldust it a great choice for reluctant readers.
Content-wise, middle school librarians should read it first. I am proud of the diversity of my collection, but some librarians might not be comfortable purchasing some of the books I have for my middle schoolers. It’s definitely fine for high school, but for middle school, it just depends on the reader. There is language and sexual innuendo see below. Teens drink and do drugs at a party.
To me, the sexual content excessive partying is euval mature for middle school, so I have moved it to the high school. I liked that the story is told from Jason’s perspective; it seems most recent vampire books are from a swooning girl’s point of view. I like how down-to-earth normal Jason is.
