I absolutely adored this book.  It was great for young adult readers, and for adult readers.  I really loved Roseline.  After literally hundreds of years of severe abuse from the man who is most likely the most scary man on the planet, she risked a possibly severely painful death to escape him, leaving with practically nothing, and starting a new life at a Prep school in Chicago.

As you may expect, Roseline was hesitant in making too many friends, but the friends she did make were every bit as important to the story as she was.  I loved all of their individual quirky personalities, and how they brought Rose out of her shell, and made her (and me as the reader) laugh.

And then there’s Gabriel….the perfect guy.  She can’t stay away from him.  No matter how hard she tries, they are both constantly drawn together, and they start to realize there is more to their story than just a crush or a physical attraction.  And although Roseline is afraid to get too close, and have her past literally come back to haunt her, Gabriel won’t give up.  The author did a perfect job of keeping their relationship realistic in how you would think they would really be affected by her (real) age, her past that could kill, and the strange new things that were happening with Gabriel.  There were definitely some “awww” moments, but not too many.  It was perfect.

The end of the book wrapped up perfectly, not leaving a cliffhanger, but definitely leaving me ready to read the next book ASAP!  It was a great read!

    A very good YA take on Dracula's wife. I was hesitant to read another YA novel with whiney girls and high school drama, this book kept that stuff to a minimum. I think it helped that Rose is technically 322 years old so she behaved mostly like an adult. I had to keep reminding myself they're still supposed to be in high school with all of the stuff that went on. I definitely want to get the next in the series to find out more about Rose and Gabriel, the prophecy, and find out what happens to Vladimir.

    No

    I got this book because it was free and because I like vamps...The writing wasn't very good and the characters were bland to me, especially Rose. I put it down after a few chapters.

    Great Teen Book

    This is a great teen book. I would recommend it for ages 13-17. And also the girl on the cover is so pretty.

    Still reading...

    I'm still reading the book, and it's good so far. I think if it was written in first point of view, it'd be more powerfull.

    Would have given more stars, but...

    The plot is good, the story is engaging, but the horrible grammar really distracts from the story and makes it so hard to stay inside the story while you're reading it. If the author can't correct her own errors, she should spring for a really good proofreader.
