Before I get into my review, here's the synopsis from Goodreads:


Sara Grey’s world shattered ten years ago when her father was brutally murdered. Now at seventeen, she is still haunted by memories of that day and driven by the need to understand why it happened. She lives a life full of secrets and her family and friends have no idea of the supernatural world she is immersed in or of Sara’s own very powerful gift.

In her quest for answers about her father’s death, Sara takes risks that expose her and her friends to danger and puts herself into the sights of a sadistic vampire. On the same fateful night she meets Nikolas, a warrior who turns Sara’s world upside down and is determined to protect her even if it’s the last thing she wants.

Sara’s life starts to spin out of control as she is hunted by an obsessed vampire, learns that her friends have secrets of their own and reels from the truth about her own ancestry. Sara has always been fiercely independent but in order to survive now she must open herself to others, to reveal her deepest secrets. And she must learn to trust the one person capable of breaking down the walls around her.

My Rating: 4 out of 5 stars.

My Overall Thoughts/Impressions: This was free on Amazon and so I snagged it. I absolutely adored it. At first, I wasn't sure what to expect or where the novel was going, but I was quickly sucked into the story.

This is paranormal at it's best. It's been a long time since I've read a good paranormal. This was one that reminded me why I like paranormal. The plot was intense, and even though I guessed some of what was going on, I couldn't put it down.

If you love kick-butt female protagonists, then Sara is what you're looking for. Seriously, this novel was incredibly well-written. I for one know I will be reading the sequel. 

So why 4 stars? It was unique and it caught my attention. Great read.

Warnings/Side-notes: None!

The Wrap-up: A well-written book that I really enjoyed. This book is chock full of intrigue and suspense. A world you won't want to miss delving into. 

Love,
