“I’ve abandoned all my principles for you… Broken laws I held to so firm for centuries, did things I never thought myself capable of…” He kissed her as he whispered. “Was it worth it?” His tears wet her lips. “I don’t remember.”~David
Helena K. Sharpe was raised by a man who had sympathy for supernatural creatures, for the vampires his bloodline hunted for centuries. She was too young to understand how he tried to help them, but she knew it was important. Her father made her promise never to hunt them and she would do anything to keep that promise.
Until he is murdered by the very things he dedicated so much of his life to.
Orphaned and alone, Helena takes to the street, afraid for whatever’s left of her life. Without her family, she doesn’t know how–or even if–she can go on. Until a vagrant takes her under his wing and gives her a purpose. Revenge.
For six years she learns about the monsters, studies their habits, until, at 15 years old, she feels she’s ready to find the ones responsible for her parent’s death. All she has to do is become one of them. She’s cute, young, innocent…
They’ll never see her coming.
I enjoyed the content of this book but the age of Helena was to young for me for things that she went threw. There is sexual content in it but didn’t really go into sex scenes. Which was good for me. This was an interesting story and I understand why Helena was the age she was. I just don’t know if I would have read this if it was not free from netgalley. Helena made her choices that lead up to her being a vampire but the boy craziness really bothered me for some reason. It seems like all “female” vampires in this story act that way to get what they want. I don’t know if others will be fine with Helena’s age and her boy craziness it just didn’t help me. That was most of what I took out of the book even though the was other stuff happening. I won’t be reading another one in this series.
