College freshman Leesa Nyland has been fascinated by vampires since she was three years old. That’s when her mom started acting weird, refusing to go outside during the day and insisting the sunlight hurt her skin because she had been bitten by a one-fanged vampire…
But fascinated doesn’t mean Leesa believes—any more than she believes in blue fire, people who live for centuries, and kisses that can kill. When her beloved older brother suddenly disappears, she is forced to confront all these and more.
I was unable to finish the book. It just did not capture my attention. The first three chapters could have been combined into one chapter. I read until chapter six and when still nothing happened, I had to put the book down. The writing wasn’t the best. Although the author is talented when it comes to describe what the main character is eating, how it tastes, what everything looks like, etc. I feel the author is missing the big picture. He focuses so much on the minor details that it causes the book to almost stand still. Hence nothing has yet to happen and I was on chapter six. The story plot sounded really interesting but the narrative just moved too slow for me.
