You think she's acting like 25? To me it's more like 15. I mean, spit balls? Come on, the last time I did that, I was thirteen.
The first time it was mentioned she was 40, I was shocked. I was sure it was a mistake, but no. She really is.
This was just one of many things in the book, that didn't really make sense. That Lucien was a jerk didn't help either. But what can you expect from an 800+ years old guy who is attracted to a perpetual teenager?(less)

It has been a while since I read a vampire story, but 'Until the Sun Falls from the Sky' was just what I needed. This story puts a different spin on the "vampire and human fall in love" trope. This one took a little time to warm up to, but in the end it was well worth it.

In Kristen Ashley's 'The Three' series, human and supernatural beings have coexisted for centuries. A war fought centuries earlier resulted in some rules to keep vampires in check and to keep both species alive. This has helped

I am actually pretty convinced that Leah is actually a teenager, she certainly acted like one throughout most of the book.
This is Leah after she has been choosen & is living with him

So Kristen Ashley can write paranormal too! Not that I ever doubted her. A different take than what you normally think of when you hear about ‘vampires’. Lucien isn't your typical vampire. And Leah... well, she's not the typical concubine.
“Mine,” he declared.
“Never,” she returned.
His mouth moved to her ear and he murmured, “We’ll see.”

But for some reason all eyes are on her and she senses everybody knows something she should know. Until Lucien arrives and marks her as his Master. But their relationship since the beginning isn’t the traditional between a Master and a Concubine. Pretty much because there are feelings between them and Lucien was waiting for

I'm exhausted and still trying to come to terms with the fact I did not like this book like I thought I would. While I'll admit the last 30% somewhat redeemed this story and hero for me, it was not enough to make it one of my favorite Kristen Ashley books.

UniquelyMoi ~ BlithelyBookish

Fans of the paranormal romance genre are painfully aware that vampires have been done to death, and it’s hard to find a unique take on their world. They’re always immortal, tormented, domineering, powerful man-whores, and hey, some are even sparkly vegetarians… but the bottom line - they’re always the same and that gets old. Fortunately Kristen Ashley has created a unique world where vampires were once free to be what and who they are, until they were forced into hiding their true natures. Thank
