Wow! The main character, Sarah is likeable,and begins to grow on you as she discovers her way in school, her worth, and her powers. But she isn't the only interesting character, this book has many and they are all given just enough depth for you to either like them or not. There is never a dull moment, although there is a lot of information given regarding the world that is being built. This world includes a multitude of races, mixes of paranormal beings gifts/curses in many of the characters, with a bit of mystery, touch of romance, and lots of drama thrown in. The characters do use slang, which is not typical for some YA books, and this one fits the kids perfectly.
Okay, I so feel like this book was a steal for just $3.99. This book would be about 398 pages if it was in print and if you like Vampire, paranormal books, and demon slayer books for adults or teens, you will love this.

I read this book during a vampire/paranormal book marathon over the holidays. It was an enjoyable quick read. The main character was likeable and I enjoyed how she kind of got swept up into the whirlwind of the vampire and paranormal beings around her. It starts off with a foretelling of sorts, and then you delve into the first person dialogue of the main character named, Faith. The book is told from the point of view of both Trent, her love interest and Faith. There is a retelling of scenes that give insight into what each character felt about the event which was interesting. This isn't too gory that a teen couldn't or wouldn't enjoy it and my teen thought it was enjoyable.

This is a truly seductive vampire book with a different spin. Not boring at all, great characters with depth, and what can I say, the beginning rocks and sucks you so deep in that you can't put it down. My teenager and I both read it and this is great read.
