AJ Ashe, a teenage Southern belle, is hiding a secret.

Her family is descended from a long line of vampires ? yep, I just said vampires. AJ has fangs and occasionally craves blood, but she has also suppressed many of her vamp instincts to fit into ?normal? society.

The part that?s not normal ? AJ?s mom is marrying her boyfriend?s father.

AJ knows she can?t be with Ryan, especially now that they are step-siblings. The reality of the situation doesn?t make it hurt any less. AJ tries to push Ryan into the arms of another willing female, but they just can?t seem to avoid one another.

And then, of course, other weirdness starts going down. AJ discovers that her family is part of the Serpentine clan; a high school friend is killed, rises from the dead, and begins to stalk her; AND she gets suspended from school.

Just another day in the life of a teenage vampire!

Melissa Francis has successfully produced a fun and fresh vampire novel. The story itself is engaging, and you can?t help but love the characters. Many a teenage girl will empathize with AJ and her angst-ridden relationship with Ryan.

I enjoyed the fact that Francis has made her vampires very different from those in the TWILIGHT series. These vamps have their own set of rules to follow.

I am so glad that I got my hands on this book. The ending left me wanting more, so here?s hoping that many sequels will follow!

    I'm not going to say I didn't enjoy this story. I love a good vampire novel as much as the next teenage girl, and this one did have some aspects that I enjoyed. I loved the whole background on the history - her Serpentine background, the potential prophecies that the sequel will hold, etc. Aunt Doreen is a fantastic character. The drama between Ryan (her boyfriend gone stepbrother) and AJ was fantastic.

    On the other hand, it seemed as if there were too many plot points. We had...
    1) Ryan x AJ Drama
    2) AJ & Friends Drama Hopefully more will be elaborated on Malia in the next book???
    3) AJ & Stalker Drama SPOILER ALERT: Stalker ends up dead. The only use I saw for him was to add more drama... unnecessary drama. She could have tried to find out her family history with #5.
    4) AJ & Evil Teacher Drama Sure, evil teachers are fun. But necessary? Uh. No.
    5) AJ & Mr. Charles Drama
    6) General Vampire Drama

    Now, why do I refer to everything as "drama"? It was ALL dramatic. So far - we'll see if a sequel illuminates more - I saw no need for 3) AJ & Stalker Drama and 4) AJ & Evil Teacher Drama.

    All in all, it wasn't a bad book. I just felt as if there was too much going on at once. I am looking forward to the sequel, though.
