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?

Truly Zero Stars. Immature Love-Triangle

Any additional comments?

The entire book is more about teenagers fighting for attention then anything to do with vampires. Whoever said this is like "Fifty Shades" is entirely wrong. This is pretty PG. That is not why I gave it a low rank. My review is harsh because the story doesn't go anywhere, while the author tries to make everything sound more dramatic than it is.

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.

Unbelievable

One of the top Audible Audiobooks I have listen to. I love 'The Shade of Vampire' to begin with, but listening to them brings them to life. The narrators to the book justice and why really make you feel like your live the life of Sofia, Derek and Ben.
My favourite part of this audiobook was when Sofia Claremont returns to The Shade to find Derek taking revenge on Ashley because his beloved twin sister had been captured by the hunters.
My Favourite character was Sofia, narrated by "EMMA GALVIN".
Yes, I couldn't stop listening to it. LOVED IT...! x

In fairness, it's probably for kids

Five stars if you're 14 I'm guessing. Fancied a vampire yarn like Robin McKinley's Sunshine but this is for youngsters. Who calls a lead man 'Derek'?

A Must read

Amazing!
I was gripped from the first few minutes and couldn't stop listening.
I can't wait to follow Sophia and Derek as the story develops and unfolds!

Entertaining vampire romance

Great romance story where there is plenty of trials and challenging siblings to have to deal with. Sometime friendship can shine through.
