PLEASE, someone do me a favor and kill that motherfu****. The lightning will strike me in a minute. I can' even... *deep breaths*. Maybe after i calm down i'll tell you why i hate him so much.

A Shade of Blood is the 2nd book in the Shade of Vampire series. I loved the 1st one, it was amazing! So obviously i was excited when i got a copy of the next book from the author (thanks Bella!). I really enjoyed it, BUT was it better from the previous one?

When Sofia Claremont was kidnapped to a sunless island, uncharted by any map and ruled by the most powerful vampire coven on the planet, she believed she'd forever be a captive of its dark ruler, Derek Novak.

Now, after months of surviving an endless night, the morning sun may soon rise again for Sofia. Something has possessed Derek's heart and he offers her a gift no human slave has ever been given in the history of his cursed island: escape.

But will she be able to forget the horrors that steal her sleep away at night? ... or the feelings that haunt her for that tormented prince of darkness?

There are a couple of reasons why i didn't give this book 5 stars.

Number 1 - Sofia.
I can't believe (!tiny spoiler warning!) that she actually left Derek after everything he's done for her. If she would have truly cared and loved him she wouldn't have left and for what? Ben?! Really? She was such an unthoughtful protagonist!

bitch




Number 2 - the 'surprise/twist'.
There is a twist further into the book about Sofia's farther. It did not surprise me at all. I predicted it and therefor didn't like it.

Number 3 - the separation between Derek and Sofia.
I don't know what it is about authors wanting to separate the main couples. It practically always happens, and i'm disappointed that Miss Forrest decided to take that path. It's not only boring but also annoying because you can't think of anything else but them getting back together.


Reasons why i hated Ben:
He told Sofia to do things and that got on my nerves so much, like when he told her to join the (view spoiler). Thank god she had enough sense to tell him no. And i hated him mainly because he was in the way of Derek and Sofia being together, and he scr*wed with her mind. Ben was talking sh*t all the time and made Sofia question if she should come back to the Shade and if Derek could ever truly love her, i was like...

I would also improve Derek's behavior. Like, he turned a bit evil when Sofia went away, but when she (view spoiler) he magically turned good again. *shaking head*.

Overall

A Shade of Blood was still a very good and interesting read. Derek was still amazing and i love him. It was a very good sequel to the series. There was some action and i was never bored in general.
I'm looking forwards to reading book 3! Can't wait to see what happens next :)

Lalabikida Poppy Ben was a jerk. He purposely tried to manipulate Sophia. Glad she had the "balls" to do what she needed too.
