"My sister then told me about the book, and after she finished reading it, she loaned it to me, and I read it. For a vampire book, it was amazing! I love the way the author writes. The author is a true writer. I hope the author comes out with more books. I love the plot of the story and all of the nonstop action and the characters. The Cromwell sisters are great characters. I like those characters the most, as well as vampire Caleb. This is one of the best books that I have ever read. I would recommend this book to anyone." - Elena, Amazon Reviewer
