Within the Shadows by Julieanne Lynch
Living on the razors edge, Giselle Burgman's life is torn apart by her cheating boyfriend. Little does she realise that he is the least of her worries when her long term friend Alex introduces her to his family and a new, darker world. A world of lies, deceit and corruption. Thrown from one problem straight into another, the razors edge gets thinner and sharper, testing Giselle's sanity and vitality. Not even she can hide when living within the shadows.
I received this book from the author to give an honest review.
I do have to say this was a very good book, but to me it is not suitable for YA there is a lot of explicit content in here. That being said I felt so bad for the main character Giselle she was forced into a life she did not want to live. Her so called best friend Alex who at first I thought was the good guy turned into the bad guy, and I found myself wanting to slap him. With the vampires in this book they are not good they are evil, they have an evil agenda. Like most vampire books you get the girl who wants to live the lifestyle and she finds this romantic vampire and they run away happily ever after for eternity well not here. Giselle doesn't know who to trust, she is abused, and at times frightened. But she has to be strong to live and figure out what to do not only for her but for someone else.
Now where the ending left off I can tell there is going to be a second book and I can not wait to read it. I want to see if Giselle and Antoine will live and will Giselle be Queen or will she figure something out.
This is an amazing paranormal story that you should give a read!
