    About "Amelia Atwater-Rhodes"

    1. Amelia Atwater-Rhodes

      I grew up in Concord, Massachusetts, where I matriculated through the public Concord Carlisle school district from kindergarten until my graduation in 2001 The best part of school, from fifth grade until the year I graduated, was definitely chorus I love music, and I love to sing, and though I never had the courage or the talent to participate in any of the high school plays as a performer, I enjoyed being involved at other levels the music and drama community at CCHS was the highlight of my high school career I was also on the fencing team for two years, an experience that actually inspired a couple storylines, and regret that I did not continue with that sport.I now live in Massachusetts with several pets as well as, of course, my family I am a student at the University of Massachusetts, with an English psychology double major I hope to work either as an English teacher at the secondary level, or in special education I have strong opinions about literacy, education, and how our educational systems are treated strong enough that most of my friends know not to get me started on the subject.My non writing hobbies are eclectic, and cover everything from rather domestic pastimes like cross stitch and cooking to aquarium keeping, playing piano, gardening, carpentry, Harley Davidsons, driving, and arguing there are few things I enjoy than a good debate with someone who knows how to argue, which might have something to do with a best friend who works in politics I love to learn, so if I have down time and nothing to do, it is not at all unusual to find me pouring over some book, website or video designed to teach me some new skill, from belly dancing something I desperately want to learn but have not yet been brave enough to sign up for classes on to JavaScript.

    1. For most of Erin Misrahe s sixteen year old life, she has been constantly afraid of losing control Erin has been diagnosed with schizophrenia at a very young age and her alter ego, Shevaun is highly dangerous and is prone to violent actions Erin never remembers what happens when Shevaun takes over her body In fact, Erin believes Shevaun to be a product of her mind but, in actuality, Shevaun does exist apart from Erin Shevaun is a dangerous vampire who lived for quite a long time and has some dan [...]


    2. I think the reason I didn t like this one so much as the previous four in the Den of Shadows series, is that I just didn t connect with the characters as well Don t get me wrong, I really loved it I just think that perhaps with all the schizophrenia going on I got a little too confused before the ending came along But it still gets five stars just.I found the premise of Persistence of Memory really intriguing, to begin with a girl struggling with schizophrenia, trying to re enter the real world, [...]


    3. Reviewed by LadyJay for TeensReadTooSince she was a child, Erin has been plagued with mental illness Her schizophrenic episodes have kept her in and out of various institutions for most of her life Now, at age 16, Erin s therapist has decided she must re enter the real world Public school is a little frightening lots of kids, larger classes, stimuli to trigger an outburst Erin attempts normal teenage activities making new friends and trying out for the fencing team, but nothing is able to stop [...]


    4. White pill, blue pill, yellow pill, purple pill its like swallowing a rainbow every bedtime I m really digging these Den of Shadows books I like all they all about different people but still somehow seem to flow I don t know if that makes sense yet because I just started drinking my first cup of coffee Now for some spoilers view spoiler Persistence of Memory is a pretty quick read, like most of the books within this series because they are really quite short This book is about Erin and it s from [...]


    5. Enjoyable read I think that the books in the Den of Shadows series are a bit short, so some of the depth is missing, but I still enjoy reading them through once.



    6. I decided to return to Amelia Atwater Rhodes s Den of Shadow Series It took me awhile to realize she had return and now I have five additions to read Persistence of Memory was an interesting story Not as incredible as her earlier books that I fell in love with long, long ago, but still an entertaining enough tale Erin has problems, she s schizophrenic and has been since she was a child But things have been getting complicated in her life lately Shevaun, her alter identity seems to be taking ove [...]


    7. I probably would have read this book anyway, because I read all of her other vampire world books I can t pronounce the name of her other series so I really can t even imagine trying to read it , but Amelia came to our local Toadstool Bookshop and what she said about this book really intrigued me She got her undergraduate degree in psychology like me and the psychological aspects of the story a girl who has spent her life in and out of mental hospitals due to hallucinations and disassociative epi [...]


    8. First of all I want to say this is number five in Den of Shadows series and I have not read any of the others but that does not matter, they are companion Novels set in the same world, and I have been told some characters show up in different ones so that s neat, but this book on it s own gave me all the information I needed and it read like a book one not a book five and I am really glad for that since this book caught my eye and I got it cheap and really wanted to read it before having to buy [...]


    9. I thought this was better than this author s previous books It had meat in the story and actually had an endingt to the point where you couldn t continue with a follow up but enough that it didn t make me turn the page wondering why it was blank I felt attached to the characters in this book too the personalities and flaws were brought out so it made them real Overall easy, good and entertaining.


    10. The beginning of the book is 4 stars the end maybe a 2 or 3 Erin believes she is mentally ill She has blackouts and sees things But what Erin doesn t know is that there are supernatural forces at work that are contributing to her condition As stated before the beginning was enjoyable Finding out what was going on in Erin s life and how she was learning to deal with it were interesting So was the explanation of how these episodes started but I did not like the end It feel flat and felt too easy o [...]


    11. This book really brings me back to my earlier years I loved reading the Den of Shadows quartet and the Keisha ra series back when I was in the 9th 10th grade I didn t realize books had been written I love Atwater Rhodes writing style Her stories while on the shorter side always seem to flow so nicely I really need to go back and re read the previous Den of Shadows books Her books always draw on and reference characters and events from earlier books, and I could tell that she had those in this b [...]


    12. This is one of those books where I have to get my thoughts down on paper or on screen, I guess before I feel like they re at all coherent As of now, I have no rating, only plans to show my thoughts That being said, this may or may not be my most coherent review You ll have to stick around to find out So, anyway, there were a good number of negative reviews for this one, even among Atwater Rhodes s fans When I first started reading the book, I couldn t quite understand where they were coming from [...]

    16. The story centres around Erin, a schizophrenic teenager, with a mysterious connection to an ancient vampire named Shevaun While the story was definitely interesting, I found both the plot and Erin and to be a little underdeveloped Erin had such a hard time dealing with the truth I felt that this aspect of the plot was completely glossed over Erin didn t really deal with anything She was just like, Oh, everything s changedokay It would have helped if Erin had a distinct personality She could be [...]

    20. I have to start by saying I absolutely worshiped her when I was growing up, cause, y know, 13 year old author, wrote about vampires, etc, etc Her fictional world shaped mine as a child, and still kind of does, to some extent Anyway, that being said, Persistence of Memory was kind of disappointing.I mean, the premise was promising a girl who all her life has believed that she is schizophrenic and has a violent alternate personality named Shevaun, comes to find out that her alter is in actuality a [...]

    23. Persistence of MemoryDear god this Persistence of Memory was intense, but I absolutely loved it As I ve mentioned in many of my reviews before this, I have been reading Amelia Atwater Rhodes books since I was thirteen and I m pretty sure this might actually be fast approaching my favorite It was so different from the normal Den of Shadows worlds we ve been in thus far and yet it had all the same elements we know and love.I think my favorite character was by far Adjila There was just something ab [...]


    24. I want to start off by saying that I love all of Amelia Atwater Rhodes s books I have read both her Den of Shadows series and her Kiesha ra series In fact, much like with Twilight, I found her first book, In the Forests of the Night when it was her only published book All of her books are incredibly short reads I would have finished this one in only a few hours if I had not started it on a weekday evening and had been too tired to keep reading I own all of Atwater Rhodes s books, except this one [...]

    29. How refreshing Somehow I managed not to skim than three pages on this one I think because, it was to interesting to accidently skip a detail of importance As I told Alea from Pop Culture Junkie on a Twitter message, it reminds me somewhat of The Host Which seems, frankly, I was wrong about Admittedly, the alternations in reality taken in stride are very comparable but that has to do with the concept of the book, not the background details, or the characters for that matter What s refreshing is [...]
