I received this book to give an honest review.
I truly liked this vampire story it was not your normal vampire story you would read. But I was really confused as to how one becomes a vampire exactly. Is it from committing suicide? TO me it was never made clear. They do say revenge is a dish best served cold and in this story it was very cold.
Tamara is a woman who thought she found real love with her husband Joel, but all that changed over time. With her mother dead, Tamara believes her mother was murdered. And she will stop at nothing to prove who did it. When she comes back home, she discovers so much, that vampires are real, the legends about them are true. When Joel finds Tamara, she will stop at nothing to get the revenge that she so badly wants, but at what cost does it cost her? Her innocence, her love for someone, is it best to have revenge or just let it go and let justice be served? You get to meet a vampire named Adrik who has a story within this story and in a way you feel a bit bad for him well almost.
You get a lot of information within the book which I thought was a great backdrop for the story, with all this information you get into the story and you want to know more. There were parts that I did not see coming and I was like wow! The ending I for sure didn't see coming and I wonder exactly how one of the characters would act with the news. I don't want to give anything away because of spoilers.
My favorite quote in the book "Here lies the girl who feel for death. He stole her heart and took her breath. He kissed her as he took her life. She should have watched out for that scythe."
