I wasn't going to read this book, because I wasn't sure if I would like it. I don't usually read books about this time period. But I have to say I was surprised. I found this book to be suspenseful and interesting. I loved Laura. She had a headstrong personality which I can relate to. Loved! Loved! Loved this book! Give it a try.

I thought this was a unique twist on the traditional vampire storylines. Although there are some spelling and grammar issues, the story still captured my interest. I am looking forward to reading the next book in the series.

This was a page turner for me. I loved it! It was suspenseful, and I got sucked into the story. I recommend to those that are fans of Victorian era vampire stories.

Took awhile for this book to keep my attention. The beginning was slow but the further I read the better it became! Good vampire book!

By: Sandra Madera
Genre: Paranormal Thriller (possibly YA, but I didn’t classify it that way because I didn’t get the feeling that’s what the author intended when she wrote it)
Rating: PG
Coffee Beans: 2/5 – the story has the potential to be interesting
Spoilers: No. Well, maybe a little.
Favorite Line: “…she answered briskly, brushing off Laura’s concern as if it were a fly that needed to be swatted.” (ebook, pg 54)
Disclaimer: I received a copy of this book free in exchange for this honest

This was the second title that I've read from Sandra, and with both titles I was easily drawn into the story line. It takes a special kind of author to pull off a novel like this and Sandra's writing style makes it seems easy. Great book!
