Publisher's Summary

Eve's power-hungry witch parents will kill at the slightest insult, and Eve's unwillingness to use her own supernatural abilities is enough to incite them. Boaz, a powerful vampire, may be the only one able to save her, to give her the one thing she's never had--love. But in Eve's world, no one is who they seem and everyone has an agenda. And the more she stays with him, the more difficult it becomes to spot the true devils, especially when she becomes one herself.

Equal parts captivating as it was frustrating.

This book was equal parts gripping as it was so frustrating. The book centers on Eve. Her parents are the worst of the worst and want Eve to follow in their footsteps. She has vowed to never use her powers and never turn out like them but then she meets Boaz. He turns her life on it's axis and she becomes that which she despised. Can she see the light before it's too late?

The start of the book was kind of hard to slog through. It was hard to like Eve and believe that she could be so naive and stupid, that I almost put it aside, but I kept going because I wanted to see if she would wake up and smell the roses!!! That for me was the most frustrating thing about this book. Eve was so gullible and fell for everything Boaz did and said. It was hard to believe that Eve would break her vow so utterly and completely and not see what was glaringly obvious to me.

Thankfully, she eventually realised what was what and the book picked up, and from then on I was hooked. I had to keep listening to see what happened and what would happen to certain characters. I feel like the book is almost 2 separate entities because part one was so frustrating and boring and part two picked up a bit and added a little extra something, though Eve still annoyed me at times.

In all, I enjoyed the book enough that I will probably continue with the series, though I do hope Eve grows a pair and grows up a lot!!

Veronica Fox did a good job though I got confused with her female voices at times. Some of them sounded really similar. Other than that she was a competent reader.

Mixed emotions

The story sucked me right in. I liked learning about Eve's struggle with using magic. But there were some parts of the book that felt slow and monotonous, due to the slow narration. I can see how the narrator's voice was used to give the story a darker feel, but it was too slow, monotone, and unfeeling. I think I would have enjoyed reading the book, instead of listening to it.
