Format: Hardcover
I'm not a typical fan of the vampire genre or even most revenge fiction. What made me decide to give it a chance was the great hook: "How many times would you die you for kids?". It's a great question to frame the book around. Even though it's not my normal reading material, I found it to be a really intriguing book, and look forward to more from this new author. I think the direction this book is carving out for the series will leave a significant mark on vampire lore from here forward - a cure for vampirism? Could such a thing truly exist? And if it does, what would it be? I'm interested in seeing how the characters develop after this - but I have to be careful not to give too much away here, so I'll leave it at that. I do recommend this book for those looking for something different, and fun to read. I will be looking forward to the rest of the series.

This is the compelling story of how far you will go to protect your kids. How far is too far, and the better question.....can you come back? Vicky St. John writes a thought provoking first novel that will surely draw you in for the three future installments. The characters in this novel are very well rounded and guarded of their secrets, and their personalities weave together perfectly. Does Zoe have feelings for Gibbs? Is she siding more towards Tobias, her mentor into vampirism? This is a wonderful foray into the vampire culture that is not all gruesome and gross. As a reader who follows a number of genres, this is a very clean vampire book and accomplishes it's goal without all the gore and blood that so many writers mistakenly think adds to the story. Zoe is torn between life and death, the beginnings of relationships and the ends of them. The daily struggle of losing your children, and what it can cause you to do. Do any of us remain human when some tries to take our kids? Wouldn't you go to the ends of the earth for yours? I really enjoyed reading this unedited author's first edition, it shows how vulnerable that we become as a parent, and just what we are willing to endure to be with our children. I recommend this book and cannot wait to see what is offered in the second book in this series from Vicky St. John.

Good story but there are a lot of errors. I can understand a few but towards the end of the book i was ggetting irritated with the spelling errors, ppunctuation errors, and overall bad grammar.
