Summary from Goodreads:

Vampyre Kisses is an enthralling story about a young woman named Faith, who seems content with her life, but deep down craves more excitement. Then a mysterious man named Trent enters her world and everything changes. Surprising to Faith, Trent is a green-eyed vampire from Ireland. She is even more amazed to find out that she is a witch, and the last of her kind.

Faith learns that she is destined to restore her witch line and becomes more powerful as she gains confidence and knowledge, but danger lurks everywhere -- especially when unknown assailants steal the most important gems from the vampire master and werewolf royalty.

Now surrounded by a world filled with mystifying vampires and werewolves, can Faith gain enough power to help her friends and rescue the stolen gems?


Review By Alaiel Kreuz:

It's been a while for me since my last book about witches and, so far, I think this is one of the bests. At the beginning of the story we have Faith, an average girl that was actually, quite bored of her life. A while ago she had lost her dad and, for some reason her mother seems to dislike her a lot (such a mother material here...). On top of that her job as a secretary is rather boring and the only light in her life is Mac, her best friend and old lover.

Soon all this is about to change as she becomes friends with Trent (may I say, I like his name a lot. Don't ask me why, I just do xD), a caring and protective vampire that is supposed to stay away from her. But he can't, obviously because there is something different about Faith... she has the "vampyre kiss".
Hum? You want to know what is it? Then read the book xD
No, really, read it. Elizabeth created a really good story, strong characters and wonderful creatures, like Oran. I think he is the pet every person would love to have... I'm a huge fan of cats, you see, and Oran is a volucris, a creature that in it's small size looks like a kitty with tiny wings that he hides in his fur and, in his real form he looks more like a leopard with huge Pegasus wings. Who wouldn't want a pet/friend like that?!

Of course we also have the "love triangle" between Faith, Trent and Zou Tai, a werewolf prince and almost Faith's killer.
Think of Trent as a serious, handsome, caring and strong protector (although he can make good jokes) and then Zou Tai -his family originates from Thailand- who is more like a funny, hot and sweet friend. I can't choose a team, they are both great in their own way.

I like vampires, I like werewolves and I like witches a lot and this book mixes all of them in a pleasant way. Think of it, if you discover you are the last witch and your new best friends are all from the supernatural world, wouldn't you be happy? Plus, there is a war coming and Faith is the only one that can save them all. And by "all" I mean all the vampires and werewolves out there.
And I'm heading off to read the second part! Yay! :D
