This new adult paranormal novel has an interesting spin on the vampire world. 

Lilith is seventeen year old and has recently moved to Maine to live with her aunt as she doesn't have anyone else. She keeps to herself and isn't in a hurry to make new friends in her new environment. She likes to read and spend a lot of time in the school library. 

She is approached by Ambi who usually hangs out with a group of boys. They don't mingle with anyone else either. Odin, one of the boys in the group is attracted to her and she has been watching him when she thinks that he isn't looking. They become friends but the electricity between them sparkles with just one look. Her eighteeth birthday is fast approaching and she finds out that her life is about to change. 

Then she has to face the dilemma of having to make a choice when her true nature is revealed. She is in mortal danger and betrayal leads her to a near death situation. This has the most unexpected effect where Lilith discovers that she is stronger than she thinks. In a supernatural way! 

Lilith has been through some tough experiences which have left her with psychological scars. I felt that she can be contrary and impulsive but her intentions are good. Whilst some things are beyond her control, on occasions she takes advantage of her newly acquired abilities. Odin is lovable and has the patience of a saint. Most of the guys in Odin's group are likable but for unkown reasons, I am not sure about Tristian. 

This novel is slow to begin with and builds up gradually. I soon found myself absorbed in the story but then it just stops. There is no indication that this is the first part of a series but there are some secrets to be revealed and whatever Lilith finds at the end leaves a major cliffhanger. Who? 

I sure hope that there is a sequel as there are too many unanswered questions and unresolved situations. Overall, it's a fascinating concept with all the right ingredients for a paranormal romance. 

I received a complimentary eARC and the views expressed are my personal opinion.
