Blurb: Like being a sixteen-year-old vampire isn’t hard enough, Tessa’s throwback human genes make her an outcast among her relatives. But try as she might, she can’t get a handle on the vampire lifestyle and all the…blood.

Turning her back on the vamp world, she embraces the human teenage lifestyle—high school, peer pressure and finding a boyfriend. Jared manages to stir something in her blood. He’s smart and fun and oh, so cute. But Tessa’s dream of a having the perfect boyfriend turns into a nightmare when vampires attack the movie theatre and kidnap her date.

Once again, Tessa finds herself torn between the human world and the vampire one. Will blood own out? Can she make peace with who she is as well as what?

Review: Another vampire book that was different but, different in a good way. A book that doesn’t have anyone rushing to get into a relationship. She notices the guy and you can tell that there will be a relationship somewhere down the line but, she has a mission to complete and she’s going to get it done and she wasn’t afraid to stand up for herself.

It keeps the reader on the edge of their seat and turning pages to see how the mystery is solved but, it only gets deeper at the end.

A few misplaced names kind of threw me out of the book and I had to read back over what I already read to make sure that the name was really wrong but, the writing was satisfactory enough to keep me going back in.

While it was different and enough of an intriguing mystery to keep me reading, I can’t say that I’m in love with the book here, I wasn’t too terribly impressed.

It was good enough that I wouldn’t mind reading it again, it gives you a little family drama and then BAM, mystery. I liked it and maybe the next book I’ll love. If you enjoy vampires and mysteries, check this book out.

Thank you for reading my review.
