A Shade of Vampire - Bella Forrest
A Shade of Vampire is the first novel in the Shade of Vampire series. This book was on special for 99 cents and had more than 2,000 five start ratings. It's worth much more than 99 cents. Now I'm going to have to pay for the second one! Sofia Claremont just turned seventeen. The night of her birthday party, Sofia is strolling on the beach, when a strange man accosts her. The man is a vampire. He kidnaps Sofia and takes her to the vampire sanctuary The Shade. Sofia is intended for the ruler of the vampires, Derek Novak. Sofia's ordeal is softened by the care that Derek shows her. Sofia's role in the future of all vampires is not clear, but it is clear she'll play a major part, and that "blood would be shed." This is a great book. Most of the teenage angst from the Twilight series is missing. What's left is a very different and completely engaging story. Very highly recommended.
