I twiddled between four and five stars because there are some themes I didn't particularly mesh with--like the whole acting thing. Yeah, I get that people are willing to give up a lot to get a part and the struggle of the main with this issue is done well, but not being the least interested in acting kept me from empathizing with the character right away. The plot is pretty intense in places and there's some rather graphic violence (there are vamps, after all, and they are a bloodthirsty lot)! The characters really are drawn well. I enjoyed a number of the side characters and relationships. The analogies are top-notch: Would you give up your very soul for your dream? And what if you did? Who are you without your soul? Is your soul your dream?

These are things I got out of the novel, not stated themes or preached themes. The author does an amazing job of touching on themes without preaching. There are some good action scenes, especially for such an ordinary main character. She's waitressing two jobs, trying to get parts in plays and picking up side jobs to survive. This is not one of those "She's secretly the chosen one" who will suddenly find her birthright. She's just an ordinary gal trying to make it and wondering if cheating will make it easier or harder--and if she cheats and makes it, does it still count.

The plot flowed, the mystery was decent and the characters were fun.

This was a different take on vampires and I really liked it.

The vampires in this book are drawn to humans for their "Shine" essentially their Soul. Artists seem to have the most shine of all, whether they're stage actors or paint artists, the vampires feel the most pull towards to them.

I liked the writing a lot, it was mature and the characters were easy to relate to. (No annoying heroines) Amen!

The secondary characters were wonderful as well. They all fit in perfectly with the story and all their little puzzle pieces came together perfectly in the end. The author did a great job making me like or dislike, trust or not trust, a charactor from one chapter to the next. I love that.

Overall, good book, evenly paced. I would definitely read more books from this author.

*I received a free copy of this book from the author in exchange for an honest review*

Cassie is an aspiring actress who loses her nerve and has panic attacks after a bad experience at an audition, though she cannot remember what happened to her. She soon works out that vampires are running the theatres and stealing the souls of the actors to keep themselves young-and Cassie is now on the menu.

This book had different elements from the usual vampire story. As well as feeding on blood, the vampires feed on the 'shine' aka souls of creative people which drains everything good from the person and gives the vampire added beauty and strength. This was different and I liked the concept. Vampires owned theatres and art galleries in order to have access to the creative souls. I also liked the diversity of the main characters. Cassie is part Greek part Arabic and worries that her Middle Eastern appearance could be an issue when auditioning for traditional white roles, but there is no chip on her shoulder about her heritage and no racism elements to the story. I liked this. She isn't 'Cassie with an ethnic background'-she's just Cassie, and she is a sympathetic character that you can't help but like. Her best friend Andrew is a great character and I enjoyed the added storyline of his domestic abuse at the hands of his boyfriend Caleb. The other characters like slimy Darryl, supernerd Perry, flamboyant Victor, Charles, Hedda etc are all interesting and entertaining in their own ways, making the book very much character driven. One other thing I enjoyed was the dry humour surrounding the plays that Hedda has featured at the theatre.

"Could you explain why Lucy Seward and a scarecrow performed a square dance in slow motion while a sad clown played the harmonica?
