Evangeline has been an orphan for 5 years and living in foster homes when she stumbles - quite literally - across a beautiful woman named Sophie who owns a small cafe in Portland, Maine. Sophie offers Evangeline a job at her cafe, but then next day when Evangeline arrives, Sophie announces she has to go to New York and offers to take Evangeline along. Evangeline feels like she's in a dream come true when she arrives in a lavish house and is showered with gifts . until that dream turns into a nightmare.

A highly engrossing story, this first book in the Causal Enchantment series kept me glued to the pages until I finished it. It contains a somewhat different version of vampires than the that often being provided today - sure, they're beautiful and tragic but they're also devious, manipulative and highly dangerous. I really enjoyed this book and am going to be checking on picking up the next book in the series, "Asylum," as soon as I can. I look forward to the chance to continue in this fascinating world and I highly recommend this book to fans of the paranormal/urban fantasy genre.

    Boring and cliche book

    Yet another vampire love story. At first this book was a bit interesting. However, the characters are extremely overexaggerared, the writing is subpar, and there are random personality changes in every person in the book. And it's not just that the people were acting in front of Evangeline because she changes from a lovesick puppy who giggles way too much into a person who pretends to have a spine. I couldn't even finish the book. I would not reccomend it.
