This story pulled me in almost immediately. It is the beginning of what will be a series of books. I have never read this author before but I will be buying the next one in the series as it becomes available. Except for some minor flips of grammer - nothing that would bother anyone that is not English major - it was a book that grabbed my imagination and ran with it.

A woman wakes up in an alley, naked and blue with white hair. She thinks this is a dream because that is not her normal coloring - and then realizes she knows not her name or anything else about herself. She finally finds help but comes to understand quickly that by helping her they have sentenced themselves to death if caught. Think of being of the Jewish faith in Nazi Germany for paranormals. As the military police bust down the door a vampire saves her and they transport across the US. The vampire explains parts of her new 'life' to her. She is Otherborn. She is dead. She had no blood. She is a wraith. She will always be hungry and cold. The story ends on a cliffhanger more or less.

It was enough for me to want to know what happens next. Granted, I received this for free but it was enough to make me go buy her next novel in the series.

Bottomline: Great story but too short. Great start. Good author.
My recommendation is for you to downloaded it and give it a run.

Unlike the high reviews so far on this one, I find myself torn between "It's OK" and "I liked it".

Considering the short length of this prequel novella, the author did exhibit a very nice flair for world-building. I like the premise and the vast possibilities that the plot hints at. This has the potential to be a really good series.

BUT, for me, the major characters (at least so far) are not appealing enough. The Heroine, Wraith, has the potential to be SO unique. Unfortunately, I'm just not feelin' her or her male Vampire friend. I actually found myself more interested in the two minor human characters that were introduced in the first part of the story. The writing style seemed to lack cohesion. I did like where the book seemed to be heading at the beginning, but it just didn't seem to arrive there.

Sure, I realize that it's just a teaser meant to introduce the reader to the series. And I did look up Book One, as I was intriqued enough to continue reading. However, I'm not sure that I'll buy it at the current $7.59 asking price; for that price, this prequel should have worked harder to 'Wow' me.

This person wakes up not knowing who she is. She is in an alley in a card board box. She goes to the bathroom in a store and the youngman Jonah, gives her clothes he tells her she is a other born. The cops are after her and then a vampire shows up and helps her. Nicholas Coltrane St. Delacrorix. She thinks he wants to drink her blood, but he tells her she doesn't have any. That she is a wraith.
This was a novella which like all novella's make you want to read more about the characters. This is true with this story. I can't wait to find out what happens next.

This story is extremely short. About the time you're getting interested, it is over. I would like to see where it goes, so the next book is on the agenda. Again as with so many, better editing would be a plus...but still, it was intriguing and I will go on.

Virna DePaul has created one of the most fascinating characters I've ever read, and I'm grateful I get to experience Wraith's world once again in this prequel. Here, Wraith handles the entrance into her new world with the vulnerability and strength she showed in Chosen By Fate. Some characters stick around in your mind. Wraith won't seem to leave mine.

I have read the whole series Finally reading about when Wraith woke up and didn't know who she was , was a treat. To read about her struggles broke my heart. This is an excellent series. I really hope that this author will be writing more books for this series.

I don't usually read Short Stories, Novellas or excerpts from longer works. I actually did not know this was so short, else I would have passed it by. It's a great beginning, however! The characters are intriguing, and the hopelessness of their existence makes you want to believe they can overcome it! Great writing!

DePaul has built an interesting world here. Wraith is a unique and intriguing character. I understand this is a novella and meant to be a teaser into the rest of the series, but I felt it was still too short even as a prequel. It didn't seem to develop the overall story and world enough to make me anxious to read the next book. The writing was clean and the story interesting. For a really quick read, it's not bad, and I may pick up the next book just to see how the author continues the world she has created.
