Overview

Blood doesn't just make her who she is...it also makes her what she is.

Like being a sixteen-year-old vampire isn't hard enough, Tessa's throwback human genes make her an outcast among her relatives. But try as she might, she can't get a handle on the vampire lifestyle and all the...blood.

Turning her back on the vamp world, she embraces the human teenage lifestyle-high school, peer pressure and finding a boyfriend. Jared manages to stir something in her blood. He's smart and fun and oh, so cute. But Tessa's dream of a having the perfect boyfriend turns into a nightmare when vampires attack the movie theatre and kidnap her date.

Once again, Tessa finds herself torn between the human world and the vampire one.

Will blood own out? Can she make peace with who she is as well as what?

EXCERPT
No, Cody had some serious skills, at least according to David. It would take a lot for someone to get the drop on him.
"Psst."
He just didn't have much class. Turning around, Tessa watched Cody land in front of her. His graceful controlled landing made her instantly jealous.
"There's no sign of anything unusual going on."
"No, of course not. Why would there be? It's not like they're going to advertise that they've kidnapped humans." She studied the huge stone mansion. "The captives are most likely to be downstairs," she said slowly, eyeing the lowest level.
"Whoa. You're not going into the house. If you're determined to take this further, we go back to our parents and let them go to the council. They will determine the best course of action."
Tessa stared at him in disbelief. Everything about the night had taken on a surreal appearance. She was here, where Jared was being held, with someone who could actually help her and he wanted to go for their parents. No knight riding to the rescue here.
Then he'd been raised by the old belief that vampires don't go against vampires - without just cause. She didn't think she could come up with enough evidence to prove her case.
She snagged his arm, willing him to listen. "We have to at least see if they are here."
"No. No way." He pulled away and turned, prepared to leave.
"Please."
"No Tessa." He shook his head, his vampire eyes glowing with terrible heat. "That's enough. This isn't a kid's game. This is vampire business."
"And who's going to believe me? No one. I'm not like you. My word doesn't mean anything to the others. If you don't see that Jared's been taken and kept as a captive yourself, you won't be able to convince them either."
He shook his head.
Fine. She'd go in alone. Turning away, she headed to the back of the house. "Go back home. I don't need you."
"What the..." He raced behind her. "Tessa stop. You can't go inside there. You're not allowed."
"And they're allowed to take humans?" She snorted. "I don't think so." The moon slid out from behind the clouds, highlighting the lower level of the house. Off to the left, a set of stairs cut down to a narrow wooden door. Probably the cellar. Perfect. She picked up her pace, reaching for the knob in seconds. She bolted though the unlocked door before Cody could drag her back out. Down a narrow hallway, she fled through another door that led to a wide open space. Empty space. Damn it. Could the prisoners have been moved already? How? There hadn't enough time for that.
"There, are you satisfied now?"
She spun around at the sound of Cody's voice. "No." She walked the perimeter of the room. At the far end, the room curved down and around. This place was huge. At the far end, her nostrils flared. Her weird knowing sense kicking in. Animal. Death. Fear. Pain.
This area had been used as housing for animals during the cold winter months. Horses, most likely. Ancient farm smells permeated the air. Hay. Manure. Blood.
"What's the matter?" Cody whispered.
She looked at him. "Can't you smell it?"
"Smell what?"
"Pain. Death."

    Really good book but.....

    I really liked this book, but i need some URGENT help. So there is this book that i really really liked but i cant remember the title. I remember small flashes of plot now and then and im pretty sure the book is free so if you think you know what the books title is please tell me!
    What i remember: there is this witch or sorceress girl and this vampire i think named benedict but im not sure.... so the sorceress is really powerful becuz she has like the power of more than one "witch caste" and there is a war between good and evil or something oh and the sorceress and benedict fall in love and the begginging is when the sorceress or witch girl wakes up from this sleep that her grandfather put her into. Oh and somewhere along the storyline the sorceres wich girl turns into a vampire but she doesnt lose her powers.... and lets say there is some BEDROOM stuff in it too. i would really appreciate it if u would write a review to answer this! Please mark it as To: AngelKitty (me) ^.^

    I LOVED this book. Tessa is a pure blood vampire but ended up a throwback with human traits also. She is a little of both races but not fully belonging to either world. She is treated like an anomaly by both and feels very alone. This is a face paced non-stop action book. I love how she has compassion humans and more so for her friends. She really comes into her own and sees how she does indeed have rare abilities that help everyone in the situations that occur. I can't wait to read the next book and see who her feelings are truly for, jared the human or Cody the vampire who has always been around as her brother's best friend!!!!

    WOW

    This book starts off a little slow. Pickes up when the action starts. Ends with a cliff hanger. Have the next book before you start this one. The 10 seconds it will take you to buy book two is to long to see what happens next.
