Luna is a slave who is repeatedly sexually abused by her Master and then his son when he becomes the Master. Her mother is sold away from her when she is a very young child and she has no-one else. She finds her only solace in a ruined chapel on the grounds of the plantation, but even that is no longer safe.

This story is truly intense. It is told from the view of a young woman who finds a journal telling the life's story of an ancestor of hers, Luna. Through her we feel terror, horror, humor, romance, sex, safety, loss, joy, and sorrow. Each page brings new enticing information to keep pulling you into the story.

Well written, this story is not for the faint of heart or for children. This story has scenes of rape, murder, demons, beating, the worst of slavery, and the best in humanity. It will make you angry, happy, sad, and get your adrenalin pulsing. I would not read it in the dark....... Unless you are very brave.

I give this story 4 out of 5 clouds, and a strong parental (adult only) warning due to the violence.

A slave and a vampire love story...I hadn't expected that when I first started reading this book. And it actually worked. I enjoyed the story line. However, after all of the action, drama and excitement on the plantation, the relationship between Avery and Luna became a little mundane. It went on for far too long without much to keep my attention. I continued reading because I kept expecting something to happen. By the time the relationship took a physical turn, I had grown quite bored with the two of them. When the action finally picked up again I was ready for the book to be over. The ending seemed a little rushed and a little discombobulated. I was also bothered by the writing of Luna's journal...it was written so eloquently by someone who at first couldn't read or write...once she learned to do both why didn't her speaking change to match the level of her writing? I would read the other two books in this trilogy just to see what happens but I hope when I do they stay action packed.

This was a very interesting and different take on a vampire romance story. First, it was set during the period in our history that slavery was acceptable. Second, the main character was a female slave that is taken by a vampire and eventually falls in love with. I enjoyed the story a lot and would definitely recommend to fans of paranormal romance.

There were a couple of things that bothered me - like how it was supposed to be a journal but didn't read like one. Also, she wrote in her journal different from how she talked which seemed a little odd to me - it just seems like it should have been one way or the other.

I had this book on my kindle for quite some time before I actually read it. I have a habit of grabbing free books then reading them later. When I started reading I wasn't even sure of what the story was about. I was pleasantly surprised with a heart wrenching, drama filled, historic, paranormal love story! Who would have thought you could combine slavery and vampires? I absolutely love this book and hope to read the next book when it is released. After reading some previous reviews about the reader being upset about the legal disclaimer and dying animals I have one thing to say... If you don't like it don't read it and go enjoy a nice fluff piece about a hunky horse rancher and a animal loving damsel in distress :) Now if you like different and a little dark go on and read this one!

LIKED:
I enjoyed the unusual slave/vampire twist of this book. I thought the writing was very well done. I could actually get a feel for the characters and the era in which the story took place. I enjoyed the story line. It did get a little bogged down at times.

I appreciated that we weren't left with a huge cliff hanger at the end of this book. This book can stand alone but there is enough indication of where the next book can take us to keep our interest alive.

DISLIKED: I thought the length of the relationship between the two main characters towards the middle of the book got a little boring. It kind of drug on for too long without any changes being made.

I thought the difference in Luna's speech and her journal writing was ridiculous. If you can write as eloquently as she did in the journal then you would also change your speech patterns correspondingly.

The ending was so rushed that I am still scratching my head and wondering "what.....?" It's like all of a sudden the author ran out of time and just threw it together. I don't want to give anything away in this review but a better explanation of how Luna did the change thing (very confusing) what the heck happened to Luna later, and why did it happen? I'm a bit puzzled. I think this could have been expanded to at least a couple of chapters worth of explanation.

What happened to Julia the horse? We were given hints that she was more than just an ordinary horse but were never clued in as to how, and what happened to her, she was just let go and never mentioned again.

OVERALL: I wouldn't recommend this to younger teens due to the brutality, graphic violence and rape scenes. I don't feel they were gratuitous, they were a critical part of the story and sadly a reality of how life was for these slaves, but might be a bit much for younger readers.

I was interested enough in the story that I would read a sequel.
