    One thought on “End of Days”

    1. Reason for Reading: Next in the series.That a sequel to Night Runner was coming out came upon me fairly close to its actual publication. I was thrilled and couldn't wait to read the new book as I had been out of the loop about the sequel being a go!The very first thing I want to say to US readers is that the US cover is awful! This book is aimed at teenage boys and is *not* a vampire romance like the usual fare out there. Sure girls will love it too, but please don't let that girl-appealing US c [...]

    2. Grant WolfEnd of Days by Max TurnerEnglish 10Book review ETurner, Max. End of Days. New York: St. Martin's Griffin, 2010. I am a liar. In my last book review, I said that I would never read another vampire book (after reading Night Runner, what I felt was the best vampire book ever). However, I said this before I read End of Days by Max Turner, the sequel to Night Runner. As soon as I heard that there was a sequel to Night Runner I could not contain my excitement. I got my hands on the book as s [...]

    3. *WARNING, SPOILERS FOR BOOK 1 - NIGHT RUNNER!End of Days by Max Turner was an absolute thrill ride of a book. It is everything a sequel should be - the characters are further developed - but they stay true to form, the pacing and tone are both similar to the first book and the plot continues to develop.The book begins one year after the conclusion of Night Runner, and Zack and Charlie have been bunking together with Ophelia. Charlie has, understandably, been struggling with his new status as vam [...]

    4. I read the first book, Night Runner and wasn't to impressed. I thought it was good but it didn't make my favorites list. I actually wasn't planning to read the sequel (I didn't really think about there being a sequel until I saw it in the book story). I am so glad I did because the sequel was better than the first.End of Days had a lot more interesting storyline, not that the first one didn't. To be honest, I had forgotten a lot that had happened in the first book. I was reminded as I read. But [...]

    5. THE END OF DAYS IS COMING . . .Zachariah Thomson has spent the past year getting used to the idea that his best friend, Charlie, and the lovely Luna are now vampires, just like he is. As they learn to cope with the changes this brings, a mysterious creature appears. Likened to the Beast of the Apocalypse, it begins to dismantle the network of support around Zack, who discovers he is more than just an orphaned vampire - he is the subject of an ancient prophect that relates to the End of Days. As [...]

    6. An enjoyable addition to the series and the vampire book world. For a young adult novel, I did find it to be a fun read.The book picks up not long after where the first one has left off, judging by the ending, the third book will be the same. In fact, the third book looks to be something to watch out for. There was bits and pieces throughout this book that gave enough information to carry the story forward and set up for an exciting read for the next book. This book may not have been as action p [...]

    7. I will go right into and say I did not enjoy this book as much as I enjoyed the first book. I found myself struggling to keep into it and I felt like it wasn't written the same as the first book. I felt like something is missing and that upset me.Zack learns many new things about himself in this book. He is having a hard time being away from his girlfriend and dealing with the fact that he is a vampire. Zack in this book seems to confused on what he should do. In the last book he was much strong [...]

    8. Even better than the first.When my wife suggested I read this, saying "I love a good end of the world prophesy" I may have actually rolled my eyes.Prophesy is a hard theme to play with. Things tend to either feel as subtle as a hammer to the face, or have a forced twist that just leaves you feeling like you want to slap someone.This managed to avoid both, and even within the book there is the warning that prophesies are vague, could apply to anyone, and have been applied to others before without [...]

    9. Mini review--I really liked how this and the first book are not your typical vampire novel. Since this book is more geared to boys (I suppose), the focus is more on the action and less on the romance, which I'm totally fine with! Yes we know Luna and Zack care deeply for each other but it doesn't stop them or even slow them down in their search for the 'beast' or the prophecy surrounding Zack and the mysterious 'end of days'. You really don't know who to trust in this book; it keeps you on your [...]

    10. "Positive messages to convey – a different kind of vampires"I seldom read teen fiction, and this is more so since the trend of “romantic teenage vampire werewolf affairs” started. I have to agree with reviews that I have read for Max Turner’s Night Runner series, it is a different kind of vampire story – even yes, there’re vampires, werewolves and a lot of teenagers. Humorous and lively writings. Great storyline with some great positive messages to convey. End of Days is actually the [...]

    11. The sarcasm and humor I fell in love with in Nightrunner has a star spot within End of Days as well. Here is a short list of my favorite lines. "I hate to break it to you, Edward, but you aren't in Forks anymore" "Cheese!Yeah, I'm definitely tagging you on my Facebook page" "Hell hath no fury like a demented vampire. I'm sure Shakespeare said that somewhere."I literally laughed out loud at parts, fell in love with various characters, and rushed to keep up with the fast paced storyline. I highly [...]

    12. Do you know what saves this book? It's really funny. Not the ha ha Saturday Night Live funny, but more along the sarcastic route. It's witty and does not seem forced. It just flows out of the characters mouths so easily that I can actually picture the characters in my head saying this to each other. I still question some of the actions in this book like Zack not going to school since the 2nd grade and vampires being put down by silver bullets, but I can forgive some of the silly stuff if it make [...]

    13. Read this because it is a continuation of a previous book, Night Runner, which I only read because I won the book from the publisher.As a continuation of the story from Night Runner, End of Days wasn't fabulous. It was okay. Parts were great, other parts were so-so. It seemed like there was more "filler" in this book and less content when compared to the first book. I have to say that I am curious to see where the story goes from here, as the ending was left open ended on a few threads from the [...]

    14. End of Days is a great sequel to Night Runner. I love that the author kept the series short with just two books. The story stayed interesting and didn't get drug out. Cleanliness: A few swear words / an old vampire using opium / opium used in a pain reliever for Zack / a stop at a rave, but no references to any illegal activity there / some violence and blood drinking / as I recall there is one kissing scene.

    15. I enjoyed this as much as the first book. There is so much action and so many twists that it keeps you on your toes. Zack and his newly made vampire buddy are now being hunted not only by the coven (child vampires are not allowed) but also by a creature. There is a prophecy that hints at Zack being the savior of the vamp race. The job is to keep him safe - good luck with that. Lots of sadness and death as in the first book. Hope the third book doesn't take so long to be published.

    16. This book was a great sequel to Night Runner. The events were really great. I still really love Charlie, and the rest of the characters of course, but mostly Charlie. Too bad those people died in the end and there was such a surprise at the end!!!!!!!! I really love the relationship between Zacj and Luna. Read this book because it was pretty good!YYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    17. A nice sequel to the first book, carrying the plot on nicely. Leaves you with a few of those annoying questions that you desperately want answered so I will be reading the third book as soon as I can. Some character development and a surprising twist at the end.

    18. I loved this book a lot. Zack and Charlie make a great team and I loved the action. The book is definitely geared towards boys in my opinion because the romance is lacking but the writing definitely makes up for that. I really hope Mr. Turner release third book soon!

    19. I liked this book. Very interesting. The chapters definitely caught my attention. The characters are also all very intriguing.

    20. Never saw the end coming, and now i'm mad. i wanted them all to be ok, but that never does happen in books. Can't wait for the next one to come out.

    21. This is a fast-paced and exciting series. I know the field is crowded with vampire novels, but you won't be sorry to read these. They would make good movies
