This is such a compelling story with a dark element, I seriously could not put this book down and I ended up reading it in one sitting! How amazing is a story which is not all rainbows and sunshine for once and has a very capitivating plot that just draws the reader in? Not many do

I absolutely adored the cover! It had such beautiful colours and created a very enchanting image. The blurb also really intrigued me and I had high hopes and expectations for this novel and couldn't wait to see how it would all go down.

I really loved the cover and synopsis of this book so I couldn’t wait to dig in! It’s a very intriguing storyline that may have it’s downsides. It’s YA..so expect some young aspects, but it is written pretty well and keeps my interested so that’s a plus!
It may not be super duper amazing, but definitely give it a shot to see what you think!

I rather liked Astrid, but found her a bit too human for my taste. I would have liked to see her go more into her vampness, and have been less afraid of the typical vamp lor ...more

The strange occurrences that seemed to have Astrid at the centre of it all didn’t do much for me and the book. Don’t get me wrong it was a gre ...more
