A Shade of Vampire - Bella Forrest (Shade of Vampire #1)

Published Date: December 17, 2012
Genre: Romance
Synopsis: 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?

I want to start this review off with the fact that I hate vampire romance stories but Derek Novak is ultimately heartbreaking and the only who can heal him is Sofia Claremont. Don't get me wrong, Sofia makes you want to hug her and never let go. She is a strong heroine and yet, she is this mothering figure within the book.

Something that all the characters seem to need. They cling to her. At least the humans do. The vampires however, they cling to something else of her.

The dangerous pale creature that they speak of, well he disgusts me as the book progresses. He ultimately tries to make himself an alpha male but the only one who is really the alpha male is Derek. He is one of those beautiful creatures. You know... The Twilight stuff. 

But in all honesty, I am tempted to continue the story but I've heard some horror stories about it. As a blogger, I shouldn't go off of what other people say but it's just so easy to listen to them and show what they didn't like about it. The question is, am I willing to spend 4 USD to continue the series? 

I rate this book a good 3.8 out of 5 stars and I am hoping that there will be more of a jump in their relationship now. But I'm sure there will be the classic love triangle. 

Blog you later, awesome book nerds.
