Thanks largely to the encouragement and vivacious faith of her wonderful fans, L.M. has finally allowed herself to hope that she may someday see Jasmine and all of her friends brought to life on the silver screen.

I would like to say, up until now I had no interest at all in anything that had to do with the Vampire craze. I knew this book had a lot to do with them from reading the editorial review, but the short review sounded like it would be an interesting story, and I was curious how the author would handle an entire novel about the Vampire subject. Plus, I wanted the book to enlighten me on the meaning of the title without researching the subject myself, as I normally would have done.
The book starts out in 1872 with 22-year-old Colleen Patrick. She and her husband, Ronin, a young immigrant couple happily living a nice quiet life on a little farm in America they built themselves. I took a liking to Colleen from the very beginning. The actions start right away when her trip to town changed her life completely. She was turned into a Vampire and her emotions and actions when she realized what was done to her, I thought, were very well-written and believable.
The story spans 150 years or so, since Vampires are immortal, and, without giving any of the story away, the book just keeps getting more and more exciting.Read more ›
this book starts out a little slow, but it turns into an amazing read.i was unable to put it down even while cooking dinner!
I hope book 2 of this will come out soon, would love to read more about what happens to Colleen and Ancira.
L.M.Smith is an amazing writer, and i can see her books becoming best sellers and even movies! i would be honored to read more of her works.
I found this to be an enthralling read. It show's another side to vampire's that some would think impossible to contemplate but the author makes this work to her advantage. It is full of turn's that you don't see coming til they happen. I hope that there will be a second book as would like to know what becomes of Ancira. A must read for any Vampire fan x
Colleen Patrick is a very likable character. She had immigrated to America with her husband, Ronin, from Ireland in 1870 and had settled in Lexington, Kentucky. In the autumn of 1872, her life takes a dramatic turn when she meets the Deussen's. Her life will never be the same again.
This is a book I have been wanting to read for a while. I have read other books by this author, so I was excited to begin this one.
I started to read this book and was quickly drawn into the tale. The story spans 120 years and finishes in 1992. There are several points of view, but the story is mostly told through the eyes of Colleen. I was a little confused as to the motives of the Duessen's, especially Anca and Dorian, and why they would pick Colleen to be one of the family. There did not seem to be a sexual element to this choice, but rather a servile one. But, I did wonder if Anca had feelings for Colleen because of something Dorian said. However, this was not explored by the author.
The story is certainly unique with regards to vampire life. The characters were quite interesting, but I would have loved to have seen more interaction within the family unit. Large segments of Colleen's life seemed to have been skipped over, so on occasion I felt a bit lost. But, as soon as the Valkyries were introduced, things got even more interesting. I liked Pandora. She seemed level headed and logical for a Valkyrie. They have been at war with the vampires for a long time, and have been slowly recovering from the last battle 200 years previously. The Valkyrie queen, known as "Mother", is one ticked off lady, with a grudge against the vampires. In my opinion, her need for revenge made her deranged.Read more ›
