On the evening of Sofia Claremont's seventeenth 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 an 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 the one selected out of hundreds of girls to join the 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?
First of all I love reading about vampires and yes I am a fan of Twilight :) I found this book very compelling ! I would definitely recommend it.
I appreciated how well written it was and it flowed easily from one chapter to the next. The story alternated between Sofia Claremont's and Derek Novak's point of view. That was exciting as they were both likeable characters I enjoyed .
Even being in a dark atmosphere, in a land without sun, the attractive vampire , Derek Novak, is loyal to his family and friendly to Sofia. His brother , Lucas, was a typical sadistic, uncaring, evil type who wanted nothing more than to overthrow his brother.
As a human Derek Novak, the now dark royal Prince, sought revenge for his mothers death, and joined the Shadow Hunters 400 years ago but his Dad turned vampire soon after, and Vivienne, Lucas and Derek became the monsters as well.
So, to save his family from Shadow Hunters, he took them to an Island called 'The Shade'. I'm guessing with everything that happened, he just wanted to die, but 'sleep' was an option and he has been under a witch's spell for the last 4 centuries.
What happens when he awakes is nothing he ever dreams of..... The Shade has turned into a big community with housing and he has a Harem ...knights and guards. Ahhh! I can't wait to find out what happens! How will Sofia and Derek's love endure the dark forecast foreseen by Vivienne....
My rating: Loved It!
About BellaI guess my life as a writer started when I was five; I'd sit under the kitchen table with my box of multi-colored wax crayons (I miss those) and create picture books. Creative writing was always my favorite subject and I used any free time I had to sit down with a notepad. Not much has changed, except that now I have developed vampirish habits: my writing "day" typically starts at 1am. I'm an avid reader, a big fan of cookie ice cream and I'm often travelling. When working I have to disconnect the internet for fear of being endlessly distracted by websites such as www.icanhas.cheezburger.com.
