Blurb: A phone call from an old friend sets Dr. Giovanni Vecchio back on the path of a mysterious manuscript he’s hunted for over five hundred years. He never expected a young student librarian could be the key to unlock its secrets, nor could he have predicted the danger she would attract.

Now he and Beatrice De Novo follow a twisted maze that leads from the archives of a university library, though the fires of Renaissance Florence, and toward a confrontation hundreds of years in the making.

Review: Another vampire love story and I was hooked on this one. I have to do it, I have to make the comparison to Twilight but, only a little bit.

When she finds out he’s a vampire, she asks the typical questions, and they have special gifts as well except just over a certain element, earth, fire, water, and air. That’s where the comparisons end though, other than that, it’s so different and so much better.

I would definitely recommend this book to anyone. This book is full of tension and intrigue, action and emotions. Instead of a sassy girl this time however, she’s a little bit of an introvert because of something that happened when she was a teenager. Her being a quiet, shy girl with not many friends, I found I could relate to her on that level. Also, she’s a bookworm!

There’s a point in the book when her trust of him is put to the test and I kind of knew what would happen after but, I felt betrayed with her, I couldn’t believe it. There’s really only two major plot twists that I can remember but, they are so different.

One is the betrayal I mentioned and then the other one is a pleasant surprise. If you’re looking for another vampire romance, or want to get started in the genre, I would highly suggest this one.

Thank you for reading my review.
