Destiny’s world is anything but ordinary, only she doesn’t know it yet. Some of her memories are missing, and the handsome and intriguing Nataniel whose attention she has caught is more than just a bartender.
After she suffers a fatal accident, Destiny is turned into a vampire by none the other than the sexy, arrogant, and infuriating famous supermodel Enrique, who expects her to be at his beck and call. Forced to abandon her dreams and plans, she has to learn to feed on humans and navigate the supernatural world. As if that isn’t hard enough, she and Nataniel find themselves on opposing sides.
But when a party goes wrong, Destiny wakes up surrounded by corpses with no idea as to how that happened, and Enrique refuses to help. Her only hope to find and stop the killer before more people die lies with Nataniel… if she’s willing to risk trusting him.
Really really enjoyed this book. Loved the story and the characters. Especially destiny. Can't wait for wait for next part. 5*. Netgalley and victory editing netgalley co-op.
P. S. I received a free copy of this book from NetGalley and voluntarily left this review. (meaning... I put in to get a free copy of this book because it looked like something I would end up liking and enjoying reading and I got accepted to get to review it).
This book put a unique spin on hunter/vampire lore, throwing in a mystery to keep the pages turning. The mystery was solid enough that I didn’t solve it until the characters did.
Destiny is night owl who begins the story at a club with her BFF. A simple enough party for some famous model, Enrique, turns into a challenge for the vampire/model. Consent, while clarified between the two of them later, is super muddy at this point, and was not something I enjoyed. Circumstances, however, force Destiny to end up being his first vampire made. We get to watch Destiny come to grips with her new reality, filled with a lot of politics that dampened the enjoyment of living forever.
Nat, a bartender she met at the same important party, ends up being on the opposite side of the conflict Destiny finds herself in. Together, however, they really try to do the Romeo/Juliet thing. I can see a love triangle in her future, but we don’t get that delivered just yet. The ending to this book wrapped up most everything, and I’m happy to leave it that way.

Thoughts: Ooohh, that was fun and I can't wait to read the next one!! Destiny is stubborn, snarky, and I so wish we could hang out. She doesn't care about the hierarchy of vampires, she just wants to stop a killer from striking again. Which leads her into a relationship with the one person she shouldn't be with, a vampire hunter. Granted, the hunters only hunt rogue vampires but still, the two sides do not get along. What is really great about this story is the vampires, thankfully they don't sparkle but there are some new twists like dreams and why they dream (sorry, I can't give anything away, well, I can but I won't lol).
Please note that I received a complimentary copy of this work and chose to write a review.
Bea and Destiny are college students at a “birthday” party. Bea is very excited to meet the famous model Enrique. Bea is very outgoing, party type of college student. Destiny is the polar opposite, but Bea is her best friend, so what is a girl to do. Destiny is introduced to the supernatural world by accident and then discovers there is so much she doesn’t know. She is not the typical Vampire, she still has most of her humanity and it leads her into many adventures.
Alycia Linwood takes us on a trip into the supernatural, but starts at a very normal time in a young girl’s life. This was a little slow to start, but once it does take off hold onto your hats. I am excited to read more about Destiny, Bea, Enrique and Nathaniel. If you like vampire, hunters, and other supernatural mystery’s you will love this!
