Marking the 2nd Anniversary of the release of A Shade of Vampire, Derek, Sofia and their twins have returned in new adventures!
"Outstanding... This has been the best of all the Shade books." - S. Bridges ★★★★★
I never could have imagined that Derek and I would willingly turn back into vampires.
But there are some things in life that you just can't predict. Like the strange human disappearances that had started happening on the coasts surrounding us.
There would have been nothing mysterious about these kidnappings so close to our own turf, had The Shade's vampires not given up drinking human blood almost two decades ago...

RATING 4.5 STARS A Shade of Novak is book #8 in The Shade of Vampire series by Bella Forrest. Derek and Sofia are back!!! I didn’t realize how much I had missed them! In the prologue, five years have passed since book #7, A Break of Day. The twins are five years old and Derek, Sofia and the kids are living a wonderful life on the beach in California. But strange mass disappearances have been taking place. People are just vanishing into thin air. Who or what is taking them and why? As Derek and Sofia become concerned with the safety of their children, they decide to return to The Shade. As Chapter one begins, twelve more years have gone by and it is now the twins seventeenth birthday. As in the previous books, each chapter is told from a different person’s point of view. We get plenty of Derek and Sofia but we get lots of Rose who is one of the twins, and some from her brother, Ben. There are also some new characters introduced. Some you might like, and some not so much. I particularly fell in love with Caleb. Rose reminds me so much of Sofia at that age. She has the strength and purity that her mother did. Their father taught his children about music. Rose can play just about any instrument. I loved that part of the book. Derek and Sofia find themselves once again in turmoil as they try to figure out why humans keep disappearing. They have come so far since we first met these two! Now they are just like an old married couple and have truly grown into their roles of King and Queen of The Shade. Even though some time has passed since I read the previous book, I easily found myself drawn right back into this world. The writing was fast paced and the imagery was perfect. What is it about The Shade and it’s residents that keeps us addicted? There is a cliff hanger and I can’t wait to continue on with book #9, A Bond of Blood. I’m so glad that Bella Forrest decided to keep this series going!
