" A Shade Of Vampire" Bella Forrest

 My Rating: 4 Stars 


On the evening of Sofia Claremont's seventeenth birthday, she is sucked into a nightmare from which she cannot wake.
A quiet evening walk along a beach brings her face to face with a dangerous pale creature that craves much more than her blood.
She is kidnapped to an island where the sun is eternally forbidden to shine.
An island uncharted by any maps and ruled by the most powerful vampire coven on the planet. She wakes here as a slave, a captive in chains.
Sofia's life takes a thrilling and terrifying turn when she is the one selected out of hundreds of girls to join the harem of Derek Novak, the dark royal Prince.
Despite his addiction to power and obsessive thirst for her blood, Sofia soon realizes that the safest place on the island is within his quarters, and she must do all within her power to win him over if she is to survive even one more night.
Will she succeed? ...Or is she destined to the same fate that all other girls have met at the hands of the Novak’s?

My Thoughts:

I really enjoyed this book; it was an entirely new concept to the vampire genre.

Sofia is one of those characters that make her story worthwhile. She is strong, yet she is lost all at the same time. She is pinning over her best friend who she thinks she’s in love with, and was hurt by seeing him with another girl. Taking a walk on the beach she was approached by a stranger. She was cautious of him. Then she’s waking up as a slave somewhere, and she has no idea what is happening or where she is.

They keep her on this island, and she was to meet the prince and her only chance of survival is to make him fall for her. She overcomes her fear, and makes the best of her situation; she lets it be known that she isn’t scared, when really she is terrified.

She is meant to be the prince’s slave.

Derek is the prince and he is a vampire who hates his entire existence, but he is drawn to Sofia, because she has compassion. The other vampires think of him as a legend, he gave them a place to be safe from hunters.

Sofia though is not always so lucky, Derek will do anything to protect her, and when Sofia starts to get tormented by Derek’s brother Lucas, he doesn’t know how to help her. He knows deep down that Lucas is the cause of all Sofia’s pain, but he also doesn’t want to face it.

I’m excited for the rest of Derek and sofas story. This is just one of those books you can fall in love with. It was a short and enjoyable read. Its one of those books that you will want to read again and again; it was also put together very well.
