Series: A Shade of Vampire Book 2
Summary: When Sofia Claremont was kidnapped to a sunless island, uncharted by any map and ruled by the most powerful vampire coven on the planet, she believed she’d forever be a captive of its dark ruler, Derek Novak.
Now, after months of surviving an endless night, the morning sun may soon rise again for Sofia. Something has possessed Derek’s heart and he offers her a gift no human slave has ever been given in the history of his cursed island: escape.
High school, prom and a chance to move on with her life now await her.
But will she be able to forget the horrors that steal her sleep away at night? … and the feelings that haunt her for that tormented prince of darkness?
My Review: I received this book from the author in exchange for a fair and honest review.
I love the story of Derek and Sofia. They are definitely not your average couple. She is a human, he is a very old vampire prince. This is definitely a case of opposites attract.
This book picks up right where the last one left off. Ben and Sofia try to go back to their lives and be normal teenagers. That is hard for them both for very different reasons. Sofia can’t forget her time at The Shade and with Derek. Ben can not forget his time there as well.
There were a few new characters to the story this time. I was shocked as to who they are. The very last line of the book made my jaw drop!
There were a few grammar issues with the book. I don’t know if it was just my copy or not though. I can’t wait to read the next one!
