While the plot was somewhat unique, parts of the book felt forced and abrupt rather than flowing in a mentally tangible (and appealing) way. As a lifelong adorer of vampires and vampire culture, I am automatically drawn to any book that boasts them as part of the plot. I have read any and every book I could get my hands on with vampires in them (including the Twilight series, regardless of the unorthodox portrayal of them). Thus, I have read the gamut from absolutely enthralling, makes-you-want-a-bloodsucker-right-in-front-of-you pieces of true art to the trash that is so bad it almost makes you physically ill. This was neither enthralling but nor was it trash. Piper Maitland shows potential, this much is apparent. I am hoping that the second book in the series will show that she is growing into that potential.
