What a refreshing awesome read! I wasn't sure what to expect from this book but whatever I did it really went above and beyond. Kristen paints us such a vivid world, that is so unique and really makes this series stand out among the hundreds of other vampire books. I am going to have to stop myself from jumping into book 2 right away.

Mal: (the guy main character)
Mal is the epitome of bad boys! And man do I love him. He is a vampire that is cursed. If he drinks from the vein he will kill the person, and if he kills someone he must live with their ghost.

Chrysabelle (the main girl character)
She seems soft and weak but man that girl is anything but. She is a Commarre, she has been raised to give her blood to vampires. She is pretty much a glorified blood slave. She can actually die if she doesn't give blood. But when her master dies she flees and ends up partnering with Mel to prove her innocence. And we see that there is a lot more to Commarre then just blood!

If I had saw this book was in the future 2067 I may have passed it up, I am not really into futuristic books. But I am so glad I am lazy and didn't do any research.  Because I loved it! I read it in one day and already I am itching for more. I kinda loved that Mel can't take from the vein because then to keep Chrysabelle strong they have to kiss. I think these two have great chemistry and I want to be there when they both start exploring that. I am really excited that I picked up this book, it was a great choice. I am sure this will be one of the few books that will be going on my 2013 favorites list! 


  1. I've seen a couple reviews for this one around! I might check it out some time. It sounds like a pretty cool premise!

    1. It is something you should definitely check out. I wasn't so sure but I am really glad I did.

  2. Those covers are also so gorgeous. Someday I will read those books. I think they might be hiding somewhere on my shelves already ...

    1. I love the covers. Its what made me even look twice at the books.

  3. I have had this book for a while, but still haven't read it. I may have to get it out now....

    1. You really should. I was really surprised at how much I loved it.

  4. Man, this book sounds good! I definitely need to read this.

    1. Add to the pile. ;) We can do a book exchange you get to pick a few awesome books for me to read that I haven't and I can do the same.

  5. I have it on my wish list. Thanks for sharing about it.

  6. This one's been sitting on my shelf since RT. I've been eyeing it for a while now but after reading your review I think it's time that I finally take the plunge! Thanks Amber. :)

    1. You really should. I think you will really like it. I was surprised how much I loved it. I want to read the 2nd book like now.

  7. This is another book that has been on my shelf for a while now and after that amazing review I need to dust it off and read it already. I'm tired of vampires but if there are twists and turns and it is set in the future then it sounds like something I would enjoy reading.

    Thanks for the great review!

  8. Just started reading, already hooked!

  10. An amazing testimony on a spell caster who
    brought my wife back to me.. My name is Andrew
    Nunnelly, i live in Australia,and I’m happily
    married to a lovely and caring wife,with two
    kids.A very big problem occurred in my family
    seven months ago,between me and my wife. so
    terrible that she took the case to court for a
    divorce. she said that she never wanted to stay
    with me again,and that she didn’t love me
    anymore. So she packed out of my house and
    made me and my children passed through
    severe pain. I tried all my possible means to get
    her back,after much begging,but all to no avail.
    and she confirmed it that she has made her
    decision,and she never wanted to see me again.
    So on one evening,as i was coming back from
    work,i met an old friend of mine who asked of
    my wife. So i explained every thing to her,so she
    told me that the only way i can get my wife
    back,is to visit a spell caster,because it has really
    worked for her too. So i never believed in
    spell,but i had no other choice,than to follow her
    advice. Then she gave me the email address of
    the spell caster whom she visited.
    So the next morning,i sent a mail to the address
    she gave to me,and the spell caster assured me
    that i will get my wife back the next day. What
    an amazing statement!! I never believed, so he
    spoke with me,and told me everything that i
    need to do. Then the next morning, So
    surprisingly, my wife who didn’t call me for the
    past seven {7} months,gave me a call to inform
    me that she was coming back. So Amazing!! So
    that was how she came back that same day,with
    lots of love and joy,and she apologized for her
    mistake,and for the pain she caused me and my
    children. Then from that day,our relationship
    was now stronger than how it were before,by
    the help of a spell caster.
    So, i will advice you out there to kindly visit the
    same website {},i f
    you are in any condition like this,or you have
    any problem related to “bringing your ex back.
    thanks to the DR BRAVE for bringing back
    my wife,and brought great joy to my family once
    Andrew Nunnelly
