A Shade of Vampire by Bella Forrest

My Copy: ePub eBook, 79 pages
Publication Date: December 14, 2012
Publisher: Self-Published
Source: Author
Genre: Paranormal | Romance | Young Adult

On the evening of Sofia Claremont’s seventeenth birthday, she is sucked into a nightmare from which she cannot wake.

A quiet evening walk along a beach brings her face to face with a dangerous pale creature that craves much more than her blood.

She is kidnapped to an island where the sun is eternally forbidden to shine.
An island uncharted by any map and ruled by the most powerful vampire coven on the planet. She wakes here as a slave, a captive in chains.

Sofia’s life takes a thrilling and terrifying turn when she is the one selected out of hundreds of girls to join the harem of Derek Novak, the dark royal Prince.

Despite his addiction to power and obsessive thirst for her blood, Sofia soon realizes that the safest place on the island is within his quarters, and she must do all within her power to win him over if she is to survive even one more night.

Will she succeed? …or is she destined to the same fate that all other girls have met at the hands of the Novaks?

My Review

I really need to stop reading vampire books.  I just really don’t enjoy them as much as other genres.  Seriously, if you ever see me looking at a vampire book and considering reading it, don’t let me!  Make me take it off my to-read list on Goodreads, or put it down in the store.  I am just not into them anymore!  In fact, I haven’t really fully enjoyed a vampire book since the Twilight series.  So.  Don’t let me read any more of them, k?

Having said that, this one was a pretty good vampire book.  I thought that Bella Forrest did a good job with it.  It definitely was not a bad book, I just don’t care for the genre anymore.  But, I’m going to try to put my biases aside for the rest of this review.

I thought the story was good.  It was able to keep my interest throughout.  It wasn’t the most original story in the world — in fact, I was able to pick out parts that had definite similarities to other vampire books — but it was still a good little story.

The ending made me very interested in continuing the series.  I’m not sure I understood the Epilogue, but I don’t think I was supposed to either.  But, the Epilogue definitely caught my interest and made me want to read the next book.

If you’re a fan of this genre, I think it’s definitely worth picking up.  It’s very short, so why not give it a shot?
