I enjoyed reading my first vampire book. I was gifted this book to review as an ebook and have stayed away from the culture of vampires. I now realize how many parallels there are between humans, vampires, vampire hunters and any ostracized ethnic culture. It is apparent that the world of vampires can be a representation of all that is stressful in coming of age. Shelter, Blood Haze is the first of the series and enticing in the difficulty of choosing to take care of the underprivileged, unloved and needy or the adventure and seduction of the strong and protective.
