Publisher's Summary

With over six million copies sold in the series and more than 18,650 worldwide five-star reviews, A Shade of Vampire will transport fans of Twilight, The Mortal Instruments, and The Vampire Diaries to a world unlike any other...
On the evening of Sofia Claremont's 17th 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 The Shade, an enchanted 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 selected out of hundreds of girls to take up residence in the tree-top 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?

The perfect book hors-d’oeuvre

This book left me hungry for more of The Shade vampires. It was a small but delectable story that introduces the listener to a whole new take on the typical vampire genre. It’s the perfect sized morsel to build your craving for romance and fantasy.
The narration was outstanding and I have already downloaded book 2.

Teenage Stockholm Syndrome


Everyone has their own taste in books so I will just tell you the things that bothered me about this book and maybe if you agree you will save yourself a credit. First this book is short so at the speed of light the 2 main characters fall in love with each other. ( I hate when that happens.) 2nd Derek has killed thousands of hunters,( that’s us by the way humans), he is compelled to drain us dry, how romantic…. a serial killer. 3rd Derek’s mother was drained dry, horrifically killed by a vampire but when his Dad comes home a vampire….. Derek, his sister and brother are all about…. let’s become vampires! Even though they have been killing vampires all these years, they let their Daddy turn them into the same vile evil thing that brutally killed their mother. 4th This really irks me when it comes to teenage and YA books, Derek is 400 years old but acts and looks like 17 and she IS a 17 year old girl. Hey authors how about a 400 year old female heroine and a 21 year old hero! That would be a change from the dirty old man dating the young virgin. These are females writing these books right, how disappointing. Lastly, Sofia is “special” for no reason at all. I absolutely hate that!!! She doesn’t have to be extraordinarily beautiful, smart, skilled or funny. In fact she is none of those things. Derek is instantly in love with her for absolutely no reason. I have read tons of teenage and YA books. I have 3 teenage sisters and I work with teenagers, I would never recommend this book to them even though I think it was written for their age. One of the main reasons being Derek and Sofia share a bedroom together every night and nothing happens. How laughable is that, with teenage hormones Sofia would not be a virgin the first night, so dumb.
