WOW, what an awesome read! I didn't want to stop reading it.

All of the characters were nicely developed, complicated, and likeable. As a reader, I could feel their struggles. The emotions in the story were nicely written and not overly done.

Each person we meet comes into our lives for a reason. Olivia is used to living on her own. She believes she is the only one of her kind and she's lonely, but gets by. Then, she meets William, Jesse, and Jane and her inner turmoil begins.

Why is her soul so a

I just finished Alyson Burdette's Nightfire, and I have to say that this is one of the best vampire books I have ever read. I read Anita Blake (Laurel K. Hamilton), Anne Rice (Lestat), and have read the first book in the Twilight series so it's not like I'm a stranger to vampire fiction.

What I loved:

1) Olivia. She's an amazing and refreshing protagonist. This is a vampire novel told from the female point-of-view (as a vampire and something else). I'm going to leave the "something else" as a spoi
This is a mix of romance and suspense, which I like. The storyline was well put together, with characters that are well developed, it all jumped off the pages.
If you like romantic suspense, you'll enjoy this book. Just make sure you set time aside so you can read it from start to finish, because you will not be able to put it down.

I recieved this book from the author for an honest review....Thank-you Alyson Burdette you took me away, gave me new friends, and I really enjoyed myself.

This isn't your typical vampire story. Yes there are traditional vampires in but their other breeds of vampires. This is what makes this book so interesting. It defies the norms and breaks with traditions in vampire lore. These vampires can walk in the sun and have culture, histories, and form of government as well. Here are my thoughts:

Olivia became a monster over hundred years ago yet despises her existence because of the Hunger that she must feed. She lives in a rural town in Ohio and enjoys
Cheap and Lazy
In addition to well-developed characters and an interesting plot, this book had several intriguing aspects. The prose is remarkably lovely. The author's treatment of Olivia is refreshing. Since everything is from her point of view, you would think it would be easy to sympathize with her. It wasn't for me. Sure, I can give her the monster bit, it's not her fault. But the choices she does make bother me, which is intriguing in itself, and I do care about what happens to her because I can see no go ...more
I really hope she writes another book!
