This is probably the longest it has taken me to read one book. I found this book was hard to get sucked into but wanted to give it a shot. I am torn between 2 & 3 stars, I am going to give it a 3 for effort. This book was a mix between historical fiction and paranormal love.

Voss is a vampire, he cares for no one but himself. Life is a game to him since his life is never ending. He loves to find out secrets and weakness about other vampires and flaunt that in their faces or charge others for he knowledge, which has caused him to have enemies. As he tries to gain knowledge from the sister of a vampire hunter that he plans to sale, something happens….he falls in love with the vampire hunters sister Angelica. Angelica has what is called the sight. She can see into the future and see when one is to die, she can see the exact moment they die. This gift is usual to both humans and vampires which has put her in danger and Voss feels protective of her but also has the bloodlust for her that comes with being a vampire.

This book was very descriptive, I found it to be too descriptive at times, it was as if words were just being used to fill the page not to enhance the story. Also the story went back and forth between the present and past a lot. It wasn't distinctive when it was done though. I would be half way through a page, confused non the less, before I realized that we had changed from the present to the past or vise versa and would have to go back and reread to apply that part of the story to wear it belong.

Overall, I like the underlining moral to the story.
