When Sofia Claremont was kidnapped to a sunless island, uncharted by any map and ruled by the most powerful vampire coven on the planet, she believed she’d forever be a captive of its dark ruler, Derek Novak.
Now, after months of surviving an endless night, the morning sun may soon rise again for Sofia. Something has possessed Derek’s heart and he offers her a gift no human slave has ever been given in the history of his cursed island: escape.
High school, prom and a chance to move on with her life now await her.
But will she be able to forget the horrors that steal her sleep away at night? … or the feelings that haunt her for that tormented prince of darkness?
After reading the first A Shade of Vampire book, I was eager to find out how Forrest would continue the story.
As with any good saga, new characters and plot twists are a must and Forrest doesn’t disappoint.
In this book the bond between Derek and Sofia grows much stronger and you get the sense that there is much more to come in the way of plot as details about the characters are subtly revealed. A connection between the reader and the young couple begins to develop, as does a strong dislike for certain characters!
This book is twice as long as the first so there’s much more to take in and a good chance for character and plot development. This is an excellent follow up to the first book and was much better than I expected to be honest. Forrest has created yet another YA novel world to get lost in, and I love it. Bring on book 3!
My Star Rating: 3.5/5
