About the Author

I guess my life as a writer started when I was five; I'd sit under the kitchen table with my box of multi-colored wax crayons (I miss those) and create picture books. Creative writing was always my favorite subject and I used any free time I had to sit down with a notepad.

Not much has changed, except that now I have developed vampirish habits: my writing "day" typically starts at 1am.

I'm an avid reader, a big fan of cookie ice cream and I'm often travelling. When working I have to disconnect the internet for fear of being endlessly distracted by websites such as www.icanhas.cheezburger.com.

Oh, and unlike the beautiful girl on my cover, I'm camera-shy...

*** may have spoilers because this is book 2 *** After spending time with Derek in The Shade, Sofia decides she has feelings for Derek. Derek knows that he loves Sofia and knows the only way to keep her safe is to send her back to her home. Sofia longs for home and her best friend Ben. She has never had a "real" family, but Ben's family has been her family since she was very young. Crazy things are happening at the Shade and Sofia seems to be in the middle of it all. Some believe she is the answer to a prophecy made hundreds of years ago. Derek knows that he must send Sofia back home to keep her safe. While home she and Ben give their relationship a "real' try. Yet, Sofia knows that her heart belongs to Derek. Whether it is good for her or not. She is being pulled in so many different directions. When Derek's sister comes searching for her to help save the Shade, Sofia realizes that her real home will always be at the Shade with Derek. Again, this book drew me in. It was a quick listen and so much fun. The narrators are so wonderful. It's fun to hear the characters from different people. The story flows from the first book to this book very well. I love the the world that Forrest has brought to life in this series so far. I am excited to finish the series.

I have enjoyed the entire series... from romance, to funny, to heart break, to achievement. I never write about the books in my comments as I do not want to give anything away... but this series is a MUST read!!

I had all kinds of emotions reading this book. At times, I hated Derek. We see his evil side, which is understandable. He's a vampire afterall. He's not entirely civil, but not entirely uncivilized either. There is an untamed beastly nature to him. Sophia keeps him tame. I don't think she should have ever left The Shade, but by doing so I think it woke her up and strengthened her. Ben is not an option for me. I don't think he's good for Sophia, and I hope he doesn't cause more trouble for her and The Shade. I'm kind of hoping he hooks up with one of the other characters. I think he'll get to know this person pretty well, so we'll see. Fingers crossed! A Shade of Blood by Bella Forrest was kindly provided to me by the author for review. The opinions are my own.

When I first got A Shade of Blood, I was surprised and pleased that the novel was double the first novella. Yay! More Derek and Sofia! I thought. Just like I asked for in my A Shade of Vampire review. But I ended up being a bit disappointed. To start on a positive note, there was definitely more Derek and Sofia, which I was pleased with, and also a few chapters from Ben’s and Lucas’s point of view as well. I actually found this intriguing. I liked know what was happening with other character and how their thoughts added to the plot, eventually effecting Derek and Sofia in different ways. I also liked learning more about Sofia and Ben’s past relationship together as friends and how that built over time. I also loved all the secrets that were revealed. Some of which I expected, some of which took me completely by surprise. All of them adding new twists and turns for the series to take. Here’s the down sides for me. First, the novel seemed to be written in a rush. There were several things that were plainly inaccurate, events that were disconnected from the plot, and sudden turnarounds in characters’ attitudes that I couldn’t figure out. Second, the timeline was wacky. An example would be the fact that there was prom, which is usually in April or May, and then a chapter or two later, there was a big football championship game, which usually occurs in December. Needless to say, I was completely lost. But the biggest disappointment was the fact there was no climax. I was waiting and waiting and the story just ended. True, it ended on a fascinating note, but not one that is climatic. Honestly, in my opinion, A Shade of Blood is what I would consider just a bridge to the next novel. Considering that this is one of the few vampire novels I actually like, I will still continue reading A Shade of Vampire series. I just hope in the next novel there’s more of a climax to the plot.

Ben Hudson has been Sofia's best friend and reason for escaping in the first place. Ben wants nothing more to do with The Shade or Derek Novak ever but the torture inflicted on him by Claudia remains. Sofia realizes she made a mistake in leaving The Shade and Derek Novak. She tries to have different relationship with Ben but she can't forget Derek. Derek is going done a dark path and his only light is no longer on the island. Derek cannot remember being this alone before yet that is how he feels. Will Derek continue on this path? Will Sofia return to The Shade and Derek? What will Ben do? Your answers await you in A Shade of Blood.
