My Review:

Oh yes, that I like! A new story about vampires and hunters! I would very much like to finish reading the series. First book was very much to my taste, even though I would have wanted just a little bit more.

I love the two vampire brothers. Nico was the delight of the book, with his funny lines and his unexpected wisdom. Roman was something else: Strong, mysterious, with his piercing blue eyes, he’s always there for Celeste. He is even willing to give up his feelings for her so she can fulfill her destiny. As for our main character, Celeste is stronger than she leads on in the beginning. I like that she had some hard time accepting her new role and she was willing to seek help. So in short: a great story with some great characters.

There were some items that could have been a little improved, like how Roman decided to protect Celeste and from where their relationship really started. Also, the fact that all combat moves were natural to Celeste simply because she was chosen seemed less believable.

Even with these small details, I really really liked the book and I look forward to finish the series. It is very captivating and the chemistry between the characters is very well illustrated. Funny lines are also there… well, it has a little bit of everything. Enjoy !


G.K. De Rosa has been an avid reader from a very young age. At the precocious age of two, while living in Italy, she had memorized an entire children’s book in Italian and expertly turned the pages at the exact right moments of the story. As she grew up, she always enjoyed literature, no doubt having been instilled with a love of story telling from her early years in Catholic school where she was greatly influenced by exemplary teachers who taught her the value of English and Literature. Though she did not pursue writing in college and instead went for the more traditional route of International Business inspired by her love for travel and all things foreign, after a move to New York City, she found her creative writing side calling once again. She began writing a restaurant review blog, City Lights and Tasty Bites, detailing her other passion – food! The hectic hustle and bustle of the city, combined with long commuting times gave her the opportunity to spend more time reading and rekindled a lost love. After reading countless books in many diverse genres over the two years in New York City, and returning to her home state of Florida, she felt compelled to write something for herself. She had always felt particularly drawn to Young Adult novels and having been an eternal romantic at heart, a fantasy romance was a natural choice. She currently lives in South Florida with her real life Prince Charming and their fur baby, Nico the German shepherd.
