      A vampire story with a twist!

      'I'd never felt more vulnerable than I did the moment Derek Novak's electric blue eyes settled on me. His gaze betrayed the thoughts roaming his mind. I was a lamb - a lamb ready for slaughter.' PLOT An evening walk along the beach turns into a nightmare for seventeen year old Sofia Claremont when a strange man takes a liking to her. That's the last thing she remembers before she wakes up in chains; a slave on a island run by Vampires, where the sun never shines. Although she's one of many human slaves, Sofia is chosen to join the harem of Derek Novak, the prince and ruler of the Vampires. She soon comes to realise that in Derek's presence is the safest place to be, but Derek's brother Lucas is determined that she will be his. MY THOUGHTS I actually entered a Goodreads giveaway for a copy of this book, and when I didn't win I was generously offered a free ebook copy in exchange for a review. Initially I thought that this book would feel very short and rushed, since it's quite short, but this couldn't be further from the truth. The plot is fast paced, but it's by no means rushed which I always enjoy in a book. I was hooked from the start by the strange world of the Vampires; the concept of Vampires having their own island completely void of sunlight is a new one for me, and it definitely added to my enjoyment of the story. Sofia is a lovely character; she finds herself in this nightmare world run by creatures she thought were myths, and of course she's terrified. But Sofia is also very strong, she shows warmth and compassion towards the other girls in Derek's harem, giving them comfort when she's terrified for her own life. She tries to make the best of her situation, which is perhaps made a bit easier by the fact that Derek has a soft spot for her, but she is still very much in danger, especially from Lucas. The story is told from the alternating point of view of Sofia and Derek, which I really enjoyed because I was able to see two sides of the story. By reading both of their thoughts in certain situations, I could see how they would interpret those situations differently, and I could also get a feel for how their relationship was growing from both of their thoughts. Although this was a fairly short story, I wasn't left disappointed or confused at all. The concept was interesting and imaginative, and one I won't be forgetting about soon. It has a cliffhanger ending, which only makes me want to read the next one even more, and see what's in store for Sofia and Derek. THE AUTHOR I'm very grateful to the Author, Bella Forrest, for the free e-copy of her book. There are four other books in this series; the next one is called 'A Shade of Blood' and I'm hoping to buy this one for myself soon.
