Cor has one goal: To blend in and be invisible. Unfortunately for him, no matter how far he goes, he can't run away from his secrets. Secrets about who he is. Secrets about why he's sick. And secrets about why so many people he meets end up dead, drained of blood.

To put it simply in three words “I loved it!”
Yes, I know it's not quite the red-carpet affair for one (especially me) to claim to love a book but I did. Why you ask? Straightforward, it was the point of view. Nowadays the book stores, e-store and libraries are bogged down with sups stories from the female point of view. Let’s face fact, sometimes a lady just want to know how the guy sees things. And young men need some way to relate to the young ladies other than reading Twilight, Vampire Academy and other related sups books.
I know romance from a guy’s p-o-v, who would have thought? Hey, it worked for HB’s Vladimir Todd Series as well as FM’s Bloodthirsty, and it works for Nathan Wrann’s Dark Matter Heart as well.
Additionally, it’s a clever new twist to the whole sups pop culture that every young guy can relate to (I’m speaking of the love) and every girl who loves sups stories should read.
Overall, Dark Matter Heart was a great debut that will hook all readers and the male p-o-v will definitely stand out. It contains its own unique set of characters, and a plot. Some might argue that it lends ideas from other popular books. As an avid reader I can accept that but to me all books reflect each other in some fashion. DMH is a classic tale of coming of age with a supernatural bite that even the guys will secretly love.
READ!! READ!! READ!!! What else can I say?
