The love between a father and daughter is forever. Life has a natural order: we are born, we age, we die. It is a cycle that has repeated itself since the beginning of time and is not to be interrupted. However, when Cami was only twelve years old, everything natural was taken from her. Cami is a vurdalak - a vampire - cursed to wander the earth, plagued with an insatiable hunger. She is pursued by the very one who created her and has learned to harden her stilled heart to survive. Nevertheless… when she meets Richard, a man who seems to hold clues to her past, she realizes that she can harden her heart to survive, but must soften it to live.

LOVED it! It reminded me of Bram Stoker's style of writing and was unbelievably original. It has so many twists and turns that you are always guessing what will happen next and you're PROBABLY wrong! It would have been so easy for him to do the obvious, but when you think you know what is about to happen, he hits you with a new twist! Awesome book. Highly recommend!

I loved it! I am SO glad that this was not a glittery vampire book. I LOVE real horror books and this one did not disappoint! It was scary, and sweet, and loving, and funny, and evil, and sad, and scary again! I really went through a range of emotions. I couldn't put it down and read it from cover to cover in one sitting. Thank you, Mr. Avent, for taking me on this ride!

I read it from cover to cover, in one sitting! Couldn't put it down. I took it to the beach and got so into it, I got sunburned! I don't hold that against you, though. GREAT BOOK! I LOVE scary stories and this one is. It is also sweet, in places, but not a romance book! If you drool over "Twilight" this is not the book for you. It's a really scary vampire story. I like romance, too, but this one is more scary, than romantic.

I like scary vampire tales, instead of "glittery, sweet stories". Those aren't real vampires. I rank this one right up there with Anne Rice! When is the next one coming out?

This book was GREAT! Loved it! It's not one of those romance type books that you wonder "WHY?". It made me think of Dracula, a lot! If you liked the book "Dracula", you'll definitely like this book!

Loved it! Very good writing that held my interest so that I didn't want to put it down. Would love to read a sequel..
