My Thoughts on the Book
This is the second Laura Kaye book I have read but the first Vampire book from her that I have read ( so far) it was really a very beautiful story about finding love and the healing power of love. The story is slow to start but once Sam and Lucien start to get to know each other the story is really great. Sam has a daughter Ollie ( Olivia) and she is just a charmer and is someways brings Sam and Lucien together. The vampires in this book are similar to the vampires in the twilight series but are less moody and don't sparkle! but other then how these vampires behave and feed the similarities stop there. It is beautifully written, the characters are great and I look forward to reading all of Laura Kaye's books vampire and otherwise in the very near future.
