What Amazon reviewers are saying:
"This story pulled at my heart. The author's writing pulled me right into the story and I didn't want to put the book down. I am absolutely going to continue this series!!"
"Very well written, excellent plot lines and energizing story lines, I recommend this series to anyone who enjoys a bit of romance mixed with fantasy- I call it escapism, and this series did that for me!"
"A wonderful twist on vampires like I've never seen before. The more you read the more you fall hopelessly in love with the story and every single character - even the evil ones."
"This is one of the best YA vampire series I've ever read! A Shade of Vampire is in a whole different ball park than all other vampire novels, including Twilight!"
"Hooked on the new series! Can't read them fast enough!! Highly recommended!"
"I'm addicted to these books!"
"Bella Forrest whisks you away to the Shade, which is constantly transforming as the series progresses. I'm currently on A Shade of Vampire 40. Yes, she has held my attention for that long! Every book is captivating and pulls at your heart. I find myself wishing I could be in the Shade. The romance, action, danger, and supernatural creatures keep me coming back. I've also read her spin offs involving the characters of The Shade. They give you a deeper understanding of those characters. They're like the chocolate and cherries on top of a delicious brownie sundae..."
"The Shade series has the perfect mix of action, romance, and mystery. Everything I love in a book! I would definitely recommend reading!"
"By the time I finished the book, I was hooked and I knew this was a series I wanted to read. There is a lot of twists, internal conflict, drama intertwined with an underlying love story of survival."
"I'm so glad I finally bought this book. It is a great and refreshing addition to the Vampire genre!"
"I just finished the first book and I am absolutely not going to be sleeping tonight...I must read the next book."
"The intensity between the characters holds your interest and leaves you questioning what's next. Check it out! I had to buy the second book!"
"Freaking loved this! Great story line, interesting and complex characters, and a fun take on vampires! I fell in love with the characters and found myself thinking of them long after I finished the book."
"From the very beginning I was intrigued and powerless to stop reading ! The story had such a profound impact on me that I was physically and emotionally moved every step of the way! Upon reaching the end I am desperate to continue to the second book.... I absolutely loved this read and would recommend it to everyone!"
"So very vivid you feel as though you're right there in the story with the characters, maybe looking in from a distance, but so very close that you can almost hear, feel, touch everything that's going on."
"This book was everything I wanted Twilight to be: a suspenseful vampire romance with a strong heroine and a handsome male supporting lead."
"This book deserves a 10 in my opinion, but since 5 is the highest, I will settle for that!"
"It's just wickedly beautiful."
