I'm no coward. I want to make that perfectly clear. But after my life turned into a horror movie, I take fear a lot more seriously now. I finally became Dr. Carrie Ames just eight months ago. Then I was attacked in the hospital morgue by a vampire. Just my luck. So now I'm a vampire, and it turns out I have a blood tie to the monster who sired me. The tie works like an invisible leash and I'm bound to him no matter what I do. And of course he's one of the most evil vampires on earth. With my sire hell-bent on turning me into a soulless killer and his sworn enemy set to exterminate me, things couldn't get much worse -- except I'm attracted to them both. Drinking blood, living as an immortal demon and being a pawn between two warring vampire factions isn't exactly how I'd imagined my future. But as my father used to say, the only way to conquer fear is to face it. So that's what I'll do. Fangs bared.… (més)

Not bad...a little too graphic (violence) sometimes but in the end I liked the story and the characters. I’m going to read the following books for sure…see what they’re like…

An interesting story with a nice twist to the vampire genre, this book could have had, and probably should have had, a far darker feel. The style makes for a comfortable read, and it's certainly something you can chill out with (if you enjoy this type of thing) but a grittier narrative would have upped the tension and excitement. I also found a lack of connection to the characters' emotions. The depths that must have been there just didn't come across for me.
Overall, it is a decent weekend (or even beach) read, and does have a number of engrossing scenes. ( )

1st time- I LOVE THIS BOOK!!! I love everything about it. I loved all the characters. I couldn't put this book down. Wonderful story, great character development and a story you can't wait to finish reading.

2nd time- This book is just as great the second time around. I love the characters and the storyline. I just can't get enough of it. ( )

Bello questo nuovo romanzo pubblicato dalla BlueNocturne.
Nuova saga, nuova genesi del vampiro (che appare sempre più "umani" dal punto di vista delle pulsioni. Sangue escluso)e nuova questo modo di espriemere il paranormal romance: decisamente splatter!

La protagonista, per una volta, non è una "buona". Nonostante voglia autoconvincersi continuamente si renderà conto, verso la fine, che molte delle sue scelte sono state dettate dal desiderio di sperimentare, provare o semplicemente dal desiderio di concenderai una possibilità.
Alla fine farà la scelta giusta, è ovvio, ma il processo che la poterà a fare questa scelta non sarà altrettanto scontato.

E' stata trasformata, quasi per sbaglio, da uno dei vampiri più cattivi della città, ricercato e sotto sentenza di morte esecutiva.
Benchè l'amico vampiro che l'ha aiutata nel processo di trasformazione le dica che è un vampiro "crudele e da abbattere" lei spinge comunque ad incontrare il suo Sire, non può farne a meno: è la sua natura. Ma quanto di vero ci sarà nel suo pensiero?
E' veramente la sua natura di "figlia" a spingerla fra le braccia del sadico e crudele Cyrus?

Il protagonista maschile, questa volta, non è uno solo e per nostra fortuna l'autrice si tiene ben lontata dal classico triangolo amoroso Lui/Lei/Lui... Giusto per salvaguardare i nostri nervi.

La storia si chiude in modo "anomalo" per essere una romance: Nathan (ora Sire della giovane vampira...) e Carrie sono insieme. Lei capisce di essersi innamorata del suo Sire ma, in realtà, lui non ha ancora fatto pace con i fantasmi del passato e di conseguenza le dice di non amarla. Un fine per niente "happy" ma che ci lascia comunque uno spiraglio colmo di speranza.

Niente male questo primo romanzo, attendiamo con curiosità il seguito!
