About the Author
Pixie Lynn Whitfield resides in East Texas where she is continuously writing. She is a twenty-seven year old married stay-at-home mom to three kids, a dog, and a cat that thinks she's human. You'll usually find Pixie with a book in her hand. She started writing around the same time when she fell in love with reading at a young age. It became her passion creating new worlds and bringing her own characters to life. Later, Pixie drew inspiration from favorite authors like Stephen King, Edgar Allan Poe, Anne Rice, Richelle Mead, and more. Outside of writing and reading, she loves all things baseball and tennis, history, music/concerts, and book blogging. She is also a huge fangirl for the Supernatural television series. You can find Pixie online through Twitter or on her blog: http://the-bookaholic.blogspot.com. Her second book is due out early 2013.

Well, my best friend Tiffany got a copy of this book, So of course I got to read it. let me tell you, this book was awesome. It was an unedited version so i didn't pay much attention to the very few and very far between typos. (there were like 4 out of the entire book. no big deal-io)
Ok, I loved Zarah and her checkered past. Plus, if you know me, you know i LOVE BA ninja assassin chicks. (Wish i was one. D:) Anyway, she kicked but and didn't even stop to take names! Ah! Also, i loved her brother and i felt for him. He did what he had to do. I loved how they picked right back up on their sibling rivalry. They were so cute!
Draven. Draven, Draven, Draven. What to say. I ended up liking him pretty well. He was sarcastic (<3), but he kept calling her names. haha. although, she wasn't really lovin him either. I LOVE her eyes. in my head they are all AWESOME. I think it is majorly cool how Mrs. Whitfield combined The Fallen Angels with the Vampires. I was like.....nice. :)I was freaking out when tey heard the sirensa t the end - right along with them. And i was proud of my girl, Zarah when she unleashed her BA at the end.
Most of all, though, I love how the ending was set up. Ethan. muahaha. I see where you are going with that, Mrs. Whitfield and i like your style. The end of this book left me conflicted, but it ended on a hint of action to come, which made me freak out because the sequel is no where in sight! Ah! Why have more people not read this book? It's pretty awesome. Tiffany and I shall spread the word. (kind of upset with the Author that i had to stop after just one book...need....... sequel...)
When I first started reading I had all these distractions AKA my nephews. When they finally went to sleep it was at 10 and i went back to reading(YAY)Welll I got sucked into the story, I stayed up until the early morning hours until I finished it.
I absolutely loved all the detail in the story. I could imagine everything in my mind esp. the characters, they felt so real. Draven was just a bunch of hotness!!! Zarah, well she's just pure awesome. She totally won me over when she punched a certain someone in the face(epic)Plus, I like reading about redheads. Thomas is Zarah's brother, I really wanted o hate him but i just couldn't do it. He is very likable.
The twist on the vampires was very unique. Let me tell you, you want to read this so you can see what I'm talking about.
I think that some people will love this and other won't like it, it just depends on what you like. Me on the other hand loved this and I highly recommend it to all my friends!!!
I give it 5 hearts <3<3<3<3<3
I really, really loved the premise of this story; I think it was unique, engaging, and unlike the other Paranormal/Urban Fantasy books I've read before. I loved the world building, it was realistic and felt like this could be something that's really going on in the world right now but we humans are none the wiser. Which is a tad bit creepy if you think about it lol. The detail was extremely well done and I was able to imagine everything easily, I also liked the fact that there is some back story to it and you're not just sitting there wondering how certain things (that I won't name due to being spoilers lol) came about.
I really liked Zarah, she was tough, spunky, and intelligent. She wasn't your perfect "mary-sue" type character, she has her flaws and they're part of what makes her real and relatable. In the beginning she starts off not really letting anyone in but as the story goes on you see her start to grow in that area and let some of her walls down which I liked a lot. I liked Draven as well, although at first I was kind of tired of him being so stand offish with Zarah but I suppose he had his reasons lol. However, I would like to know more about his background though so I'm hoping in the next installments we'll find out more about him. And while I still really like the other characters, I think as of now Thomas (Zarah's brother), would have to be my favorite character. I loved everything about his personality, he's got a bit of a sarcastic streak (which I always love in my characters lol), he's also loyal, smart, and cares about his sister's well being.
There's some romance in the story but it doesn't seem out of place or take away from the main plot, I'm looking forward to seeing how it will play out in the other two books. The action was definitely not lacking in this book, there were several times when I couldn't turn the page fast enough haha. I was thoroughly hooked all the way till the end, and speaking of the end it was kind of a cliffhanger and now I I'll be anxiously waiting for the next book to come out!
I know this isn't the longest review but I was trying not to go into too much detail and accidentally give away spoilers lol. But I will say that overall I really enjoyed this book, and if you're a Vampire or Paranormal/Urban Fantasy lover, or if you're just looking for a new series to get started on, I'd definitely recommend this book!
