When I first got this book, I wasn’t sure if I would like it. I do enjoy reading about Vampires but only recently I have been looking for something different, but I thought I would give another vampire romance a go. I started reading it but left it for couple of weeks not getting into the story. However, I picked it up again being bored at work. An hour later I realize that the story drew me in completely and I have already read around thirty percent of the novel!
The main character Tegan just gone through an emotional meltdown after finding her boyfriend dead in her bathroom. She hasn’t left the house for a while not able to cope with the trauma. However, when she finally goes out and tries to enjoy her time with friends in the local nightclub something else happens. In the nightclub, she meets Ethan he won’t leave her alone after discovering that she is immune to his charms. Everything would be perfect if Ethan were a human, but he is a vampire. Tegan not only catches the interest of Ethan but also few other magical individuals. Despite the circle of new ‘fans’ she gets close to Ethan, who is trying to protect her, but she fights back. Tegan does not want to be dominated and controlled. She manages to find a job and sort her life out independently.
The plot of the novel is complex and it’s based on Tegan and her precious blood that her mother had hidden casting a spell when Tegan was a toddler. The first half of the novel was engaging and made me turn the page after page, but the second half was slightly confusing pushing aside the romance. I wanted to read more about Tegan and Ethan’s relationship instead I was thrown directly into the battle between vampires and slayers.
I did like the characters, although I thought that I wouldn’t like Rita that annoyed me in the beginning but further in the novel her personality evolved. Ethan is corky and aims to bring the main character out of the darkness.
It’s difficult to present the new unique vampire story as there are so many books out that repeat the similar pattern of paranormal romance, but the author managed to pull off the new interesting plot with original character that the reader I can relate to. There is a new idea of magical rituals that flows well with vampires and other paranormal creatures within the story. I can highly recommend this book to all the lover of paranormal romance or anyone who enjoys reading about vampires.
