I was given this book by the author in exchange for an honest review.
Move over Stephanie Meyer, there's a new vampire author in town. I absolutely loved this book. The author creates a completely new world of vampires. It starts out on Sofia's seventeenth birthday. She is kidnapped by a vampire and taken to the Shade. Things in the Shade are different. Vampires rule and humans are slaves. Sofia was kidnapped to become part of the Prince's harem. However, rather than becoming food for the Prince, Derek, she becomes his treasured companion because of the compassion she shows to others. Unfortunately for Sofia, Lucas, Derek's brother, has become obsessed with her and will stop at nothing to possess her. What will become of Sofia? Will her love for Derek survive? I can't wait to read more in this wonderful series.
