Family dating rules were pretty clear—no humans. But the undead heart wants what it wants and Haddie’s high school boyfriend ended up dead because of it. Now her brother Damian is repeating history and the same fate’s lined up for a very non-vampire, Madelyn.

With the girl’s throat on the line, they don’t have many options. Soon all three of them are on the run. Hunted acro

A twist on your average paranormal love story, this novella is a keeper. Yes, there's a vampire-human love story--in fact, there's even one in the past. But the love that makes our main character, Haddie, tick, and pushes her to make the decisions she does, is a strong, healthy sibling love. What a breath of fresh air! Haddie is an awesome main character in her own right: smart, snarky, brave and loyal to a fault, she'll mouth off at the guy holding a gun on her because, well, that's better than ...more

Actually, I'd give Fanged Princess 41/2 stars if I could...well, I guess I just did. Why, oh why did I take so long to finish this, the first novella I have ever read? It certainly wasn't because the story didn't hook me right away. I read it in just two sittings with a huge break of several weeks in between. Once I found the time to settle in with my Kindle that second time I was kicking myself for waiting so long.
Kudos to Elizabeth Wheatley for great character development and a compelling plo

I had read one of Elisabeth Wheatley’s other books, The Secrets of the Vanmars, so I decided to give her novella a go. The story contains a lot of action filled scenes along with enough backstory of the characters to make them real (as real as vampires and such can be). I found myself wanting Hadassah to succeed in protecting her brother and his girlfriend. It was a quick read, which I like, and I would recommend it to anyone who is interested in paranormal YA books. I definitely want to read th ...more
Haddie and her brother may be vampires but the are far from what their father expects them to be because they both broke the rules and fell in love with a human. Haddie know’s all too well what happens when you break the rules and fall in love with your food. You would think that Damian would learn from his sister's mistakes after watching her go through punishment for Fletcher.

Instead of being as his father expects Damian falls in love with a human heading down the path just like his sister. T

I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
This is another one I've had on my pile for ages, It was almost at the top and I had a free half hour, I noticed that it was only 77 pages so I decided to read it then as I knew I could finish it.
I always find it incredible when authors manage to get a story in with such short space. For me 77 pages is more of a short story. As you may know I am an aspiring author and I find it impossible to tell a story in that space. It's actually

19-year-old Hadassah is a vampire, and so is her brother Damien. But Damien has done something stupid – he’s fallen in love with a human girl – Madelyn, something that his father will never tolerate, which he should know after Hadassah fell in love with a human boy and their father had him killed.

Hadassah knows that the only way to save Madelyn’s life is for them to run away, and to

***I received a free copy in exchange for a book review***

I liked this 9 chapter book. It was told through Haddie’s first person point-of-view. She had lost the love of her life, Fletcher, because her dad and uncle killed him. Now, her brother, Damian, is in love with Madelyn, so their dad and uncle is on the hunt to end her life as well.

My favorite lines: 1) The Huntsmen have jobs. That’s strange for some reason. 2) I’m going to die. For a moment, that one thought seems to consume all of me so

Okay, I have to say that I loved this story but my only complaint is that it's too short. I was originally looking for a short story and picked this one out, but I didn't realise that I'd fall in love with the story and want more!
I loved all of the characters but I had to choose Hadassah because, well, to be honest, I love her sarcastic attitude.

I have a particular fondness for fantasy and especially paranormal if you haven’t guessed by now. I absolutely loved this story and can’t wait for the next one. I love that Haddie is a strong kicking butt girl trying to protect her baby brother. Her tragic back story makes you like her even more. And there are even a few jerks that you won’t mind hating. I love Haddie’s snarky attitude and quick wit, and I did cry at one point but that happens with

ood novella. Hadassah is determined her brother will not suffer the same way she did simply for falling in love with a human. He and his girl deserve the choice on who to love, not have that choice and the person taken from them. She will now give her life to protect this human girl. Her uncle, the enforcer, is after them and they have to befriend people who would be more than happy to kill both she and her brother.

I won this book through the Goodreads First Reads program in exchange for an unbiased review.

This short novella of Hadassah, the daughter of the Vampire King, was an action packed adventure, with a core that revolved around family. The family that means more to you than your own life, and the family that you wished you had not been born into. In a world where vampires and humans are forbidden to fall in love, Hadassah must help Damien and Madelyn escape, before her uncle (her father's main enfor

Fanged Princess
By Elisabeth Wheatley

Now and then a book jumps out at me from the dozens on my book shelf or one of my readers and Fanged Princess is one of them. Written entirely in first person and in the present tense it starts with a dramatic scene when a vampire princess, Haddie discovers her vampire brother Damian with a human girlfriend, Madelyn. From there the action just keeps going as Haddie is forced to escort the two lovebirds away from their father and his brother, their Uncle Devin

I don't normally read Paranomal books, but since this novella was written by a fellow teen (I'm milking my last few months of teenhood for all it's worth ok?), I really wanted to support it.

And the verdict is...



Good read! And if you love Paranormal stuff, you'll love this.

What I loved most about this book was the the main character (Hadassah) wasn't the one in love. Nope, it was her brother who was in love with a human. And since I used the term human, you should know that Hadassah and her

This was a quick but fast read but it was still action packed. The author told a great story in this book and I loved every minute of it. In this story we meet Haddie who we learn is a vampire princess. Haddie is helping her brother and his human girlfriend escape her father's wrath. Haddie and her brother aren't like her father and see humans as more than just prey. I love when books have the whole forbidden love thing going on in it because it always makes for an interesting tale. This one mad ...more

Read this review and many more on my blog.

The writing here was very crisp, (i.e. good), just as many have come to except from Wheatley. As for pace, sometimes it was a tad slow. Even so, once it picked up the story rocked right on through, and became very intense. Like, hardcore-bad-ass intense. (I ache so badly to give you an example, but I don’t want to spoil anything.)

On that note, the characters are great. I won’t give away why, since you’ll need to read and figure

Hadassah has a problem. She’s a vampire who fell in love with a human, but all we learn about that in this first book of the series is that her father intervened and killed the young man a year ago. Now Haddie learns that her vampire brother, Damian, loves Madelyn, a human, and Haddie decides not to let the same thing happen to her that happened to her beloved Fletcher. What follows is a chase between Devin, Haddie and Damian’s uncle, and the vampire siblings with their human. Haddie even enlist ...more

This was my first novella, as I’ve always been a lover of thick books, and thanks to Elisabeth Wheatley, I will be reading more novellas in the future. Although I finished it in one night, the story wasn’t lacking. It’s fast-paced and filled with action. As a writer and reader of books, it amazes me how someone can fit so much into so few words, and I am impressed with the teenage girl that wrote this.

Imagine being hunted by your own family with no one to turn to but your brother and his girlfriend whom you are trying to keep safe. That's exactly what Hadassah is up against.
She and her brother Damian are on the run with his girlfriend Madelyn trying to keep their family from coming after her. Why you ask? Because they are vampires and she is a human. It's against the rules for a vampire to love a human and if the others find out, you're in deep trouble. Haddie knows all too well what happens
First in series read that grabbed me from the start.

Mysterious Vampire Princess Hadassah has discoverd that the fate of her brother's human love interest is about to suffer the same ending as her own did. In an attempt to save Damien the heart ache and subsequent punishment for loving a human that she herself received, she hatches a plan to hide them away from their father and his henchmen.

Without any long range plan in mind she's forced to turn to an enemy of her people hoping they can underst

Hadassah has had a hard life and it looks like her brother is in store for the same thing. She is brave and she is a great heroine and main character in this book. She stands up for what she believes in even if that means facing someone who may be stronger than her or she may get herself hurt etc.

This is narrated by a vampire princess with the Hebrew name Hadassah. Her seventeen-year-old brother Damian has fallen in love with a human girl, Madelyn, and their father has sent his enforcer to kill her. Hadassah is determined to save her brother and his girlfriend, and so begins the flight for survival.

This is a well written and enjoyable story, with a capable kick-ass vampire heroine, and despite the YA cast it didn't feel like it was written for a YA readership. I am, though, a little disa

Fanged Princess is a quick and action packed read. For such a short book, you are given a tremendous amount of detail into the lives of the characters. I feel like a have a good idea of their world and lives. It always excites me to read books by young authors, specially, when they are as talented as Miss Wheatley.

Fast and furious adventure, with a backdrop of family loyalty and an equal measure of family betrayal. Protecting those whom you care about, no matter the cost or risky consequence, is the underlying theme. The story is basically a "high-speed-chase" from state to state as the protagonists fight to outrun the punishment for breaking with what is considered the norm in the world of this colourful vampire suspense. ...more
Wow! This book is amazing! I'm not into vampires or that sort of thing, but this book really captivated me. I could not put it down. Full of action and suspense, it still takes the time to develop the characters. I really enjoyed the dry humor as well; I'm a huge fan of sarcasm. Altogether well-written, it's a relatively clean book with good morals and an excellent plot. ...more
