While the king was occupied with palace business, Almika wandered off by herself.
She came upon the Sacred Sacrificial Cenote and threw her gold ring in, praying for her and her unborn daughter, Melanna. Unknown by anyone else, her labor started. As she lay dying, a stranger came out of the jungle and she bade him, protect her baby. After her body and the baby were taken away, he found the ring she had tossed into the cenote, thinking he may need it in his duty to protect the baby.
Melanna grew up in Coba, which became a Mayan city of note, with far-reaching influence. When Melanna came of age, she went on a pilgrimage, the Women's Right of Passage, to Izla Cozumel. While there, she had wandered off on her own and fallen into a cenote. Tez was there to save her.
Back home, her personal servant Quaileen told her some of her family history. Her mother had come from a line of warriors. As she was thinking about what she learned, she wandered out to the garden, where she ran into Micah. He told her his gift and purpose in life was to appear where there would be a terrible conflict. He went on to tell her that she would have an important role to play.
Melanna was ecstatic when Tez showed up at the door of the palace. He had always been near her, keeping her safe, but she was unaware of it. As they got to know each other, she asked about his family. He told her that a blood thirsty cult had killed, not only his wife and family, but his enter village. A group of men arrived shortly after and had taken him in. They became his family.
On Bonfire Night, they had a feast, dancing and celebrating the end of school. Manny and Melanna went together, Zonya cozied up to Noctli.Read more ›
In the past few years the same vampire story has been rehashed over and over, I'm glad this novel has changed that path. This is not a typical vampire novel and it throws us into a new world of vampire lore. At just a glance, the story takes place in a vivid and detailed vision of the Mayan Nation where of course human sacrafice is a regular occurance. Also as the readers soon find out, vampires aren't sparkling and perfect lovers, in fact they're pretty hell bent on the destruction of humanity.
This is part of a saga, and I'm excited for the next part.
I'm showing my support of the author and purchasing the kindle edition!
I TOTALLY RECOMMEND, AND TO SHOW SUPPORT I WILL BE PURCHASING THE KINDLE VISION.
THANKS FOR A GREAT READ!
This was a very descriptive book. I felt as though I could see the jungle and the the city of coba. It also gave a new twist to the vampire romance novel. I was excitedly and suprised by this story and plan to tell all my vampire loving friends about this book.

I have never left a review, but this was one of the worst books I have ever attempted to read. Don't waste your time.Published on June 18, 2014 by WandaQue
I have to admit, this is not my style of reading at all. I know the author and knew she was trying to get a start as an author. Read morePublished on September 18, 2012 by chinook203
This is a new author to watch. She does a very good job of world-building and character development in this original take on the vampire novel. Read morePublished on August 24, 2012 by devon
