I always check for its author's update regarding this book and after I saw the paperback version of this novel, I immediately grab it tightly and read it the same day.
The story is about a mortal girl who entered the world of vampires accidentally. She met Red (because literally, he has a red hair which grew redder when he's angry) the one-third mortal, one-third vampire and a one-third werewolf. They were like childhood sweethearts but then because of the prophecy about the war between the different bloods and race, were torn apart. Want a spoiler? I'll give you a hint...
OF COURSE, THERE'S A HAPPY ENDING! :)
Miruna's attitude captivated me all through out the book. She was not your typical heroine. She's a very talkative one yet very honest and straightforward.
I also fell in love immediately to Red. His thoughtfulness and protectiveness to Una melted my heart and at the same time, torn me apart. Torn me apart because I can't find someone like him in the real world! lol.
The plot was what I wanted to read in a gothic novel. More mature, intense and dramatic dialogues. I enjoyed the thrilling ride brought about by the author's imaginative world of immortals especially when the vampires were being consumed with passion and why some of them become silver bloods.
The story was very satisfying so I gave it five stars though I'm still hoping for another sequel which I hope to be about Sidney.

You will think that Caitlin was having a good life, coming from a well-off family. Her mother was a PTA member of their high school and a dedicated mother while her father was a respected dean of the university. They had New Age neighbors whose like been a part of their family for years. She had a straight A sister whose going to Yale in due time.
But no and it started when her sister ran away from home to be with her current boyfriend.
Caitlin, the-always-have-been-second, started to make her own path instead of just following her sister. A path that her sister never took before, being a cheerleader of the campus and dating Rogerson. Yes, a very mysterious Rogerson who became obsessed with him as their relationship falls, beating her when she came late during their meeting and when he found her talking with other guys.
THE REAL SHORT REVIEW (unedited. please, bear with me)
I love this book! There are so many books out there about real teen problems that ended up depressingly but this one ended up with full of hopes.
She had been placed second with her sister always being on top. She had been invisible in her own home. She smoked pot and get stoned. She'd been beaten black and blue by the one she gave everything to. The one she loved the most.
Compared to other fictional characters, can I mention Hannah of the Thirteen Reasons Why? Caitlin never thought about suicide as the story progresses even though everybody around didn't mind what's actually going on about her, which she realized was her fault after all for alienating herself to everyone. She realized all her faults and THAT REALLY WHAT MATTERS to me.
She mentioned she still misses Rogerson and I absolutely understand her. You can't just forget someone you give your life to, right? Even though he hurt you beyond imaginable.
I also like the sisterly love revolving around the story. That really grips me a lot.
I cried a lot at the end of this book. It's just that BEAUTIFUL. You have to read this. :)
