I highly recommend it and am looking forward to the author’s next book on her website which I am looking very forward to delving into this week just as soon as I get some school work done… Thanks again to Steph for the wonderful recommendation.
I’m always looking for book recommendations and this was a great one.
This was one of those rare books you HATE to see end.
I was a bit wary going into it because I’ve never read much fantasy or vampire type books, but now I will definitely be reading some more like this!
This was also the perfect book to have been reading during Halloween week.

My good friend, also named Stephanie, recommended it to me with rave reviews and I am so glad she told me about it.
