With so many vamp books around, it’s very difficult, at best, to come up with a unique spin on the subject. Bella Forrest has accomplished that, and then some!
Combining some common vampire themes, modern day thinking and major imagination, A Shade of Vampire goes where no other vampire book has. Sure, the heroine being kidnapped to become a slave to a vampire, has been done before but the meat of the story goes way off from there.
Taken to a secret haven for vampires, this feisty heroine is unknowingly destined to be a slave for the prince of the vamps, who’s been asleep for 400 years. Kind of like a blood-sucking Sleeping Beauty, except, instead of being awakened by a prince, he is the prince!
I won’t go into any more details so as not to spoil the plot but, if you like vamp books, I’d suggest giving this one a try. There’s danger, intrigue, romance, magic, and mystery, and the characters are three-dimensional in a way that makes you think they could be real people, if vampires really existed.
The ending is a bit of a cliff-hanger, as this is the first book in the series, so I’m more than looking forward to reading the next one when it comes out.
