AJ Ashe isn’t your typical seventeen-year-old vampire—as if there is such a thing! She’s stuck in the middle of a huge fight between her two BFFs. Her ex-boyfriend—whom she’s still totally in love with, by the way—is now her stepbrother. A former classmate—who, um, she may or may not have turned into a vampire—is stalking her. And now, apparently, the fate of humankind lies in her little undead hands. What ever happened to the good old days, when all a vampire girl had to worry about was the occasional zit and hiding her taste for blood?

This was a good read but something about it keeps me from giving it a 5 flame rating. I can’t really put my finger on one thing. I laughed at times, I was interested in the story, and the characters weren’t too bad either. I think it was mainly that at the end, everything came together too fast and ended too early. The book does leave it open for the next book, but it did wrap up most of the plot before the last page. A great rainy day read for adults and teens, with new twists on some of the vampire myths.


Very Good! Worth Spending Your Money on!
