So, my apologizes for getting this up at this late hour!!! I wanted to be up and live two hours ago, but with my boys... yea, that never happened!!
I loved this book, and I loved Abby! In the first book, she was turned into a vampire against her will, and kidnapped and help captive by Bronx, who turned out to be someone who wasn't so nice. What she didn't know was that her mother was really a vampire, and a powerful sorceress who was a part of the Head Council. In this book, she's discovering what her true powers are, and how to use them. She learns she's a very powerful vampire, and there are those out to kill her.
She's conflicted at the beginning, because Tyler, her human from the first book has betrayed her more then once, but she's still giving the benefit of the doubt where her feelings are concerned. She loves him, and is desperately trying to prove his innocence. When it becomes known that he lied to her yet again, she's finally forced to let him go. It is when he shows her in one of his visions a secret so horrible to her, that she fights now to kill him on sight. Still, she loves him, but knows it is truly over.
When she moves into the castle of the Head Council, this is where she is reunited with Trace. Abby is surprised to feel an attraction towards him, and is more then a little scared when the attraction is returned. He makes it clear that he wants her, but lets her have her space when she needs it. Personally, if I had a vampire that looked like Trace... he wouldn't be waiting very long!! He's beautiful... It is when he tells Abby the truth of a certain vision that Tyler showed her that was the catalyst for her feelings regarding Tyler.
With the help of Elliot, the oldest vampire on the Council, she's able to reconnect with her mother Madelaline, who was killed by the vampire trying to kill her. She's apprehensive at first, but soon she realizes her mother is there to help her progress with her powers. Also, she aids Abby in finding out where the vampire is located who wants her dead.
Can I repeat that I loved this book?? I loved how kick ass Abby becomes with her powers, and yes... I would love to be able to shoot fireballs out of my hands! I think that would be an awesome power to have!! ...more
Grace Morgan is heartbroken. She's lost her grandfather, who was the only one in the family who really understood her. While she is at the funeral, shGrace Morgan is heartbroken. She's lost her grandfather, who was the only one in the family who really understood her. While she is at the funeral, she meets Quentin. He was her grandfather's lawyer, but she soon finds out he is so much more then that.
When she goes to get her inheritance, she realizes there was more to her grandfather then she ever thought possible. He was a chosen, and responsible for protecting something very dear. Quentin is his guardian, and now hers, as she's a Chosen as well. She's confused as what this means. She knows that she is different; and has the similar power as her grandfather had but doesn't know her future.
She's at odds with her mother, who hasn't been much of a mother in her life. She wants desperately to trust her, but is afraid to. Her father abandoned her when she was young, so trusting men isn't high on her list.
It is when she's at the local cafe listening to her best friend's boyfriend's band that she first meets Darius. He's beautiful, and she falls for him. Hard. She's devastated when she finds out he's not who he seems to be, and is intent on hurting her. Again she's unsure of who to trust, and finds herself alone in her devastation.
Quentin.... I would love to have a bodyguard like him!! He's beautiful, but he's scared of his growing feelings for Grace. He knows that he must keep information from her to protect her, but in the end he realizes that wasn't the best decision for him to make. He loves her, and must do everything he can to protect her. He makes the decision to tell her something that will cost him everything, but thinks the price is worth it if he can be with Grace.
I loved this book, and I loved the men in this book! Both Darius and Quentin are heartstoppingly beautiful, and both love Grace. Darius is sweet to Grace, but he has his own reasons for wanting Grace. Reasons that aren't good, and aren't what Grace thinks.
She's desperately trying to find out who she is, and it's made harder with the presence of both Darius and Quentin.
I found myself reading more and more, because I had to find out what happened with Quentin and Darius... as they are both pretty yummy. I loved Grace, and I loved that she's able to show forgiveness to people who she thought she could never trust again. ...more
This book had me from the first word!! I was hooked right from the beginning, and could not wait to see what happened.
Jade has no memory of who she i This book had me from the first word!! I was hooked right from the beginning, and could not wait to see what happened.
Jade has no memory of who she is or where she's from. She has glimpses of certain memories, but nothing she can hold on to for very long. When she wakes up with blood on her hands, literally, she knows something is wrong with her.
She finds herself in Louisiana, and realizes there are clues there on who or what she is.
Conner is hurting, and he's hurting badly. He's suffering from the loss of his father, and because of this wants to be invisible at school. If no one notices him, they can't pick on him. He likes it that way. When he meets Jade for the first time, his world changes.
When Jade starts having strange visions of girls who have been murdered, she starts on a journey for answers about who she is. When she finally finds the answers, she's forced to make a choice between life and death; good and evil.
Throughout the book, I kept trying to guess what Jade was, because it was clear she wasn't human. First I thought she was a vampire, and once you read the book, you'll know why I thought that. It is so far from what she actually is, that I'm still shaking my head at myself. There is something dark within her, and it is fighting to come out. She just doesn't know what that something is.
I felt sorry for Conner, because I know I would have been friends with him in highschool. He's picked on and bullied by two jocks at school who he despises wholeheartedly. Jade is the light in his dark cloud that is following him.
I'm going to repeat myself here, but I loved this book so much! I love a book that keeps me guessing, and this book kept me guessing right until the end! I know it is one that I will be reading again, because I love Jade and Conner together!! There are times I just want to give Conner a hug, because I felt horrible for him at times. He proves to Jade just how much he loves her, and it almost costs him his life. ...more
I loved this book!! I felt incredibly sorry for her at first, thinking when is she ever going to catch a break?!?! The fact that she thought suicide wI loved this book!! I felt incredibly sorry for her at first, thinking when is she ever going to catch a break?!?! The fact that she thought suicide was her only option, is sad, as I've dealt with a suicide in my family. It's hard to think they are that desolate.
BUT.... she finds something that she's actually good at! She becomes a volunteer at the Station. She's not sure where it is or how the people that are there have gotten there, but she thrives at what she chooses to do! She becomes the voice in a person's head who is thinking about suicide themselves, and she enjoys it!
The ending was surprising to me... and I LOVE SLOAN!!!! Definately can't wait to read the next one!!!! ...more

Meena, to me, was perfect. She's shy, because of the secret she carries, and Blake is perfect for her! At first, she is cautious of Blake, knowing that if she gets too close, she'll get hurt. He's leaving, and she doesn't want to get involved just to have to say goodbye.
Blake, on the other hand, is a little more determined to get to know her. They are forced together by her father, who is looking for new ideas for a sign for a Cruise destination contract. It is while they are doing this, the two of them get to know each other better.
I could not put this book down! I had to know what was going to happen to them, and was happy at the ending. There were some scary moments, but a very good good read until the end!!

This book had me from the very first word! Although I wanted the ending to be different for the characters involved, I still loved the ending that was in the book.
You follow Luce on more of her self discovery, with not only Daniel, but how her life came to be. From the very beginning. I was glued to it for about two days until I finished it! I was actually a little mad that it ended...
The relationship between Daniel and Luce is beautiful, and I loved reading their story!! ...more
