Brooke Keller's a high school junior who never spent much time living in one place. She's finally in a town long enough to almost snag the boy of her dreams, until her life is threatened by a fanged man in his attempt to kidnap her. Brooke begins a dangerous journey to find out who is after her and how to stop them. Thrown into a world with powerful and prejudiced vampires, Brooke must tap into the side of herself that she never knew existed, at the risk of losing her life in order to save it.

Brooke is a girl who has never tasted love or a friendship because his mother, with whom she lives, has not stopped moving from state to state until now.

Happiness comes at last when it seems that her mother agrees to stay in one place longer and Brooke experiencing what every normal teenager, a friend who becomes her closest confidante and best friend, Kaitlynn, and a handsome boy that fill her hours with love, Jaren.

All is happines until Brooke slowly realizes that someone is following her and one day this guy tries to take her by force. In that moment Brooke shows a unknowning supernatural force.

From that moment her life changes radically and starts an adventure.
She has to keep loved ones safe while the vampires, called Pijawikas, go after her and can harm the people around her.

I loved the way the writer has been showing each of the characters. It makes you part of Brooke's life and you become attached to them.

Also I have to add that this is one of the few times I do not hate any character. All have something special, good or bad...

My favorite character is Mirko, handsome and arrogant. I would fall in love with him in real life if he was real.

The central plot revolves around Brooke and her friends survival and is mixed from time to time throughout the book with scenes that leave a rich smell of love.

This is a book I recommend to anyone who loves the young adult books. It is entertaining, easy to read and you will be hook until the end.
It has the notes of love that many of us like mixed with an aura of intrigue interspersed with lots of action.

Something negative? I do not like so much the cover. Keep a little book style vampires but it does not draw attention from the bookstore shelf (in my opinion). I will wait to see the cover of the second book to see if it gives better vibration.

I would like this book in Spain. In this manner many of spanish readers will can enjoy it!!!

The best: everything.
The worst: book with an open ending that will make us wait for more adventures of Brooke until the next delivery :-( .
Thanks for the book Angeline Kace!
