Review By Alaiel Kreuz:
This book is about Sophia, an eternal teenager that is forced to go back to high-school to keep an eye on her youngest sister, Danika. The reason? Danika is the newest addition in her family, a vampire family. This means that if she struggles to behave herself in high-school at least she won't be alone.
The only problem is that since her older brother, Caspian, killed his girlfriend in a terrible accident and then ran away ashamed of what he did, Sophia prefers to keep her distance with humans and the only people she allows to enter in her world is her family so going back to high-school is not something she wants to do. At all.
Specially since she doesn't trust Danika...
But we all know high-school is not as bad as it seems, specially if we have in count that you can find a few cute guys *big smile*. And that's what happens with Sophia when she bumps - literally- into Nathaniel. Is not that she wants to reveal herself to him and tell him all their secrets but there's something about him that drags her to his arms. It doesn't matter how many times she tries to stay away from him, its useless.
And then her fears become reality...
I had a good time reading this book, is not very long so I finished it in one night. Now, I'm always going to be honest and this book has a few similarities with Twilight, there's no denying that. So, if you liked it this book should be a nice one to read.
Saying that we can also find witches and another supernatural beings that make the story very entertaining. And the second book is also very good, but I'm going to tell you about it tomorrow ;)
