    Great Novella

    There is a whole lota (is lota a word? if it wasn't it is now!) story packed into less than 75 pages in this first short story of the Kindred Curse Anthology. I loved it, plain and simple. The story never lets up from the first chapter to the very last page.

    Isabelle and her mother are on the run. From vampires. After loosing her twin sister Gabriella who was in love with a vampire and her father to suicide, they don't stay in any place too long. Something is in Isabella's blood that makes her irresistible to the vampires. After arriving in Chattanooga, TN Isabella has a run in with four young vampires and her life is on the line, literally. After being rescued by Xavier, an elder vampire, her whole world will be turned upside down whether she likes it or not. They are both drawn to each other and Xavier will stop at nothing to loose her, even offering her her every wish. The one thing that Isabella wants more than anything is her sister Gabriella back. But can he give her the very thing that she desires?

    Gleaming White is so well written that you will feel like you have read a whole novel by the time you reach the end. The ending was outstanding and left me hungering for more.

    Short, But Incredible

    Isabelle and her mother have been on the run ever since she can remember. A strange disease that is passed on through the blood to every new generation attracts vampires from far and wide - a fact that neither woman can deny.

    Having lost her father and her twin sister to the very evil that stalks them night by night, Isabelle finds herself haunted by memories she can't escape. Her heart yearns to be reunited with the part of her that's missing, but she knows that it's impossible. Gabriella is dead and will remain that way for the rest of eternity.

    Intrigued by a book she's found at the library, she loses track of time and finds herself surrounded by a pack of vampires who refuse to let her go easily as she tries to make it back home. Inadvertently invoking a spell, she summons forth an entity that must protect her from those around her. Yet she never imagined that her doing so would have dire consequences.

    Having attracted the elder vampire's interest, Isabella realizes that her days are numbered. Her blood sings to his and Xavier is convinced that she is the one he's meant to be with. She soon finds herself falling under his spell. Unable to truly break free, she accepts the fact that certain sacrifices must be made. Even if it means losing the one thing that has come to mean the most to her in such a short time.

    While this was a short novella, it read and felt as if it were a novel. Terra has such a way of telling the story that you get hooked into it from the very start. While it ends on a cliffhanger, I'm pretty sure that the next part in the series won't disappoint. She's that good of writer and I truly recommend this book.

    Not into vampires, but perhaps I will make an exception this time!!

    I really enjoyed this shorty story a bunch. I am a mom that usually ventures into Magic Tree House for my fantasy life-lol. I decided to venture into the vampire world slowly and a short story was the way to go for me. I never got into the Twilight thing. But this is good. A little adventure, a little lust-just the kind of escape a mom could use for an afternoon.:) Well at least if it is not my life, it is nice to have a mental escape into another world. MUST READ!

    Definitely for adults~
