    Isabelle and her mother have never stayed in a place for too long. They are always on the run because of their disease which makes them irresistible to vampires. Their first night in a new town Isabelle gets caught up in an ancient vampire book in the library and ends up getting surrounded by a group of blood thirsty vampires looking for some fun on her way home. She blurts out "Hail the elder nearest, ruler of the night; Guard me and mine until the dawn's light" and Xavier shows up to protect her from the other vampires, but not without a price. He was the one that hid the summoning spell in the library for "the one meant to find it". He is convinced that they are meant to be together and demands that she stay the night with him for protection, but one night isn't enough for either of them. Her blood calls out to him just as much as he calls out to her. For being such a short book it really hit all the points for me. You got a short quick background story on why Isabelle and her mother were on the run. A little bit of romance even though Isabelle didn't really return Xavier's passion. And then the climatic ending that leaves you wanting more. It was short, sweet and to the point. Favorite part... Isabelle doesn't want anything to do with Xavier and doesn't like that fact that not only can he read her thoughts but he can do so when he is not even with her. "She needed to sit down. One glance at the bed caused her to look for anywhere else to sit. As soon as the thought came to her, a large armchair materialized behind her. She heard a low growl of pleasure in her head. It was his growl; he delighted in the fact he could provide for her even when he was not there."

    This is a retelling of Beauty and the Beast. It is actually pretty similar but with a couple of twists. Bee grew up knowing that something wasn't right with the Curse House and heard a lot of stories about the house. Bee is terrified when she is sent to live in the Curse House by her father to help break the curse. At first Bee's only concern is to escape the house and get back to her old life but once finding out that the house refuses to let her go, she decides to help break the curse. Will is not overly receptive to Bee and the feeling is mutual. However, they decide a truce is in order and they throw themselves into solving the riddle and breaking the curse. The curse that was intended for his brother from his sister-in-law. She had found him unfaithful and decided to put a curse on him but the curse went awry and cursed the house instead with everyone inside it, which now includes Bree. I thought the story was a fun new take on Beauty and the Beast with the Fey Lands and all the magic involved. This is a great read for any YA reader. Favorite quote... Shortly after Bee is sent to the Curse house she is talking to Will and his sister Rose. She asks his what he likes to do and I thought his response was pretty funny considering everyone thinks that he is this evil, human eating beast. "I prey on innocent villagers and terrify their children, and sometimes when I'm feeling really evil, I read books or paint."
