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.
This is not your typical vampire story. These vampires can go out during the day and actually are born into what they are. They are called Pijawikas and Brooke finds out that she is half Pijawikas and half human. Just when her life was going along perfectly.
After finding out her true nature, Brooke, her best friend Kaitlynn and her boyfriend Jaren are all whisked away into hiding. She soon finds out that the Pijawikas people look at her as an abomination due to being a half breed and actually will threaten her life.
Along with all of that, there also begins a love triangle. I really enjoy the love triangles in stories. I think it makes the book more intense and this triangle was really intense! I cannot say whom I like more, Jaren or Mirka. They are both pretty great, but I will probably end up being Team Mirka. He seems to have a little more “bad boy” in him;-)
“Whoa, Jaren,” I stepped in front of him. “You broke up with me. Remember? Either I’m your girlfriend, or I’m not. But you do not get to push me away and then stake a claim on me when another dog comes sniffing around.”
Dear Ms. Kace, How can you leave me hanging like this? Cliffhanger ending! The story builds up leaving you wanting to have the next book right there…NOW! There is a little shock factor at the end and I cannot wait to find out what happens in the next book!
Will Brooke choose whom she loves more? Will she finally find out whom is threatening her life? Will she and her friends be safe enough to return home? Not sure, but the next book seems to be scheduled for release sometime in 2012. It cannot come soon enough!!!
He pulled away from me and cupped my head, stroking my outer ear lobe with his thumb. “Please choose me,” he pleaded.
