On Solange’s sixteenth birthday, she is going to wake up dead. As if that’s not bad enough, she also has to outwit her seven overprotective older brothers, avoid the politics involved with being the only daughter born to an ancient vampire dynasty, and elude Kieran Black—agent of an anti-vampire league who is searching for his father’s killer and is intent on staking Solange and her entire family.Luckily she has her own secret weapon—her human best friend Lucy—who is willing to defend Solange’s right to a normal life, whether she’s being smothered by her well-intentioned brothers or abducted by a power-hungry queen. Two unlikely alliances are formed in a race to save Solange’s eternal life—Lucy and Solange’s brother Nicholas, and Solange and Kieran Black—in a dual romance that is guaranteed to jump start any romance-lover’s heart. Even fans of the genre who’ve seen it all will find a fresh read with kick-butt characters and family dynamics that ring true for all brothers and sisters—vampire or otherwise.

I pleasant read but, a couple of days on, totally forgettable! Really for a much younger audience, any aggressive or fight scenes are over so quickly with little description, and some were down right confusing. Did I ever feel worried or was my heart ever in my mouth? Sadly not. I have a the next co...
If it were a food it would be cotton candy. Fluffy, sweet, addictive and best eaten in one sitting but you won't feel terribly full after eating and you may have a bit of a toothache. This was a light, page turner that you don't want to think too hard about or elements of its plot and its world-bu...
