My Review
You would be forgiven for thinking this was just another story about vampires. At first look, you wouldn't even realise that this story involved vampires at all! Daphne is a meek substitute teacher who just happens to cross paths with Charlie Cross, a man well known for being involved in organised crime. She slowly gets drawn into his web but his constant flakiness leads to Daphne falling for someone else which leads to a very tense storyline.

This book involves a variety of genres rolled into one and makes this a very worthwhile read - romance, thriller, suspense, paranormal - something to suit everyone! I would suggest that this is read by 16+ however due to some of the sexual scenes.

So what did I think of the book? It definitely is unlike any other vampire novel I have come across before and that is meant in a good way. It kept me gripped and I couldn't wait to see what was happening.

I give the novel 4 stars :)
