Raine was an average girl with an average teenage life. Always loving anything to do with vampires, she never expected they would be real. When a Rogue vampire hunts her, she not only learns that vampires are real, but that the two boys that her heart is caught between are in fact a vampire and a werewolf.
As both boys vow to keep her safe, Raine learns of her true destiny...she is a Shijin Warrior born to win the war against an evil Warlock named Fala. Fala is creating half vampire half shape shifting creatures to take out all of immortal kind.
Will Raine be able to fulfill her destiny and save immortals, or will her hearts desires make her lose everything in the end?
Raine is just a 'misfit' trying to fit in , she doesn't like what all the other kids like , she loves the goth type look and vampires. Lonely she hopes to find love someday and in walks in the mysterious Tristan and from that moment on her world is turned upside down.
As excited as I was to read this book because after all I am such a vampire, lore fanatic. This book left me disappointed. I didn't feel the connection with the characters like I felt I should have.
What I did like:
I loved the premise-love triangle, fight bad guy. The fighting scenes and training was well done those I could visualize and root for the good guy so to speak and lastly it was a fairly fast read.
What I didn't like:
As I mentioned above and this is a biggy for me I just couldn't feel the emotions of the characters it felt flat. I wanted to but I just couldn't. But the downside for it being fast read is that I was left confused as we kept jumping along in the story- nothing really felt wrapped up.
That being said would I recommend this book, well I think I will leave that up to you to decide. While it might not have been my cup of tea, it just might be yours.
My ratiing is a 2 stars out of 5
