Summary from Goodreads:
Brooke Keller is a high school junior who has never spent much time living in one place. She is finally in a town long enough to almost snag the boy of her dreams, until her life is threatened after killing a fanged man in his attempt to kidnap her. Brooke begins a dangerous journey in an effort to find out who is after her and how to stop them. In a world with powerful and prejudiced vampires, Brooke must tap into the side of her that she never knew existed at the risk of losing her life in order to save it.
Review By Alaiel Kreuz:
Brooke, I assure you, doesn't have an easy life. Her mother for some reason she can't understand doesn't like to stay too long in a place so she could never have real friends. But now things are a little different. She has spent a couple of years in the same little town, got a BFF and her secret crush is finally available! Life couldn't be better.
Until the day she helps her boyfriend, Jaren, to move to his new place... A man that had been following Brooke (something that she knew but feared to tell if it meant moving again) entered the apartment and told her to go with him. Of course Jaren tried to stop the man but the only thing he got was a horrible bruise in the head and then something very odd happened... Brooke went for the man with an incredible speed and strength and killed him.
Panic rushed upon her and after calling her mother, who told her to meet and talk at her uncle's house, Brooke discovers that she is far away from been normal and that they've been hiding all these years. Now she has to take Jaren and Kaitlyn (her BFF) and run away to meet with a guy, Mirko, who will protect her.
The story is well developed and each character is perfectly defined. Brooke is strong and nice but at the same time lacks confidence. Despite that she ends up with the hot guy who turns out to be... well, I'm not going to spoil anything but I'm 100% Team Mirko! He is just the perfect guy and I'm completely in love with him.
The only thing I didn't like to much: why, o why, a girl would think that being a vampire is like being a monster?! Please, tell me. The fact that Brooke kept thinking that (she being a monster) annoyed me a little bit... But, don't get me wrong, this book is a MUST read. When I finished it I couldn't stop pressing the buttons hoping that I would find more hidden pages... I seriously need to read the second book right now!
Go and buy it, I promise you will have a terrific time reading it ;)
