Mortal death or eternal damnation? If those were your choices, which would you choose?

Allison Carmichael is frustrated with the doctors who can’t diagnose her seemingly common ailments. Her frustrations are further compounded by her inability to discover her life’s calling, a purpose she desperately desires yet which has eluded her for thirty years.

A car wreck throws Allison into a life she doesn’t recognize filled with vampires, centuries-old secrets, betrayal, and vengeful enemies she never knew existed.

When Allison discovers the source of her ailments and the truth about her biblical lineage, she wishes she hadn’t searched so hard for the answers she thought she wanted.

    Allison knows something is wrong, but no matter how many doctors

    Allison knows something is wrong, but no matter how many doctors she sees or how many tests are done, none of them can find anything. She's not eating, not sleeping well, running ice cold or burning up, and having debilitating stomach pains. Doctors leave her thinking they believe she's crazy and she knows she isn't. Her husband, Matt, is sweet, understanding, and very supportive.

    Then her world is turned upside down when Allison and Matt are in an accident on their way home from a party. Allison wakes up in the hospital and immediately begins asking about her husband. No one is answering her questions until her best friend, Jenna, arrives. Devastated to be told Matt has been dead for three years, Allison feels lost. She has no memory of the accident or her life of the past three years. Jenna takes her home from the hospital to a house she doesn't remember.

    In addition to the den she's always wanted and a beautiful garden, the house has one more thing, photos of Allison with a man she can't remember. Vincent Drake shows up at her door expecting her to remember him. But he's more than just the man in her life. He's also a vampire with a very special talent. He can make you remember things that never happened. He wants Allison for his own. More than that, he wants her to choose to be converted. Allison is more special than she knows; she is a direct descendant of Cain. This also makes her a target for someone bent on revenge.

    Grealis has created an amazing story. She's taken the biblical story of Cain and Abel, given it her own special twist, and hands us vampires. I've only read one other series that offers an explanation as to the origin of vampires and this wasn't it. I really enjoyed the storyline. Love, loss, vampires, revenge, and surprising ancestors all combine to make a uniquely original story. There were a few errors that got in the way of the story, but overall, a very good book. Even better is the fact that I already have the sequel. That makes me a very happy person.
