What People are Saying About This

From the Publisher

"St. Crow delivers a beautifully romantic yet creepy tale. . . . The world-building is amazingly detailed, and she has built layers in both her characters and in the society they occupy. This story defies type as it’s not merely a twisted fairy tale, nor is it simply another vampire love story. . . . it is purely "other" and new."—School Library Journal

"The ambitious worldbuilding and alternate history are fully thought out and well-realized, sure to enchant readers. . . . A delicious treat for fairy-tale fans."—Kirkus

Praise for Lili St. Crow's Strange Angels series:

"Dark, dangerous, and sexy!"—Richelle Mead, author of Vampire Academy

"Will mesmerize readers."—Publishers Weekly

"Sets hearts beating loudly and never lets go."—Kirkus

"Teens will devour this suspenseful and action-packed read."—Booklist

“Nameless: A tale of beauty and madness” by, Lili St. Crow Camille (Cami) is found in the middle of the street broken and alone when she is six years old. The man that finds her is the head of the Vultusino family, a vampire family that is one of the seven powerful families ruling New Haven. Growing up in a world filled with magic and a plethora of supernatural beings can be very difficult when you are human, but Cami has been loved by Papa Vultusino and his son Nico since the night she entered their home. Though riddled with scars and a struggling with a stutter Cami is thankful for her privileged life. When lost memories start surfacing, Cami can no longer ignore her questions about where she came from and who scarred her. Throw in a mysterious stranger named Tor and confusing new feeling for Nico and Cami’s life is about to break wide open.  First I have to say that I loved the cover for this book, it’s beautiful! “Nameless” is a wonderful read and I enjoyed every second of it. Here are some of the reasons why: *The relationship between Nico and Cami is deep and changes in a very lovely and believable way. (It’s at times dark but quickly changes to gentle and sweet.) Nico is a very complicated young man with a lot of pressure on his shoulders and Cami is his light. The word game he created for her to help with her stutter melted my heart.  *I loved Cami’s two best friends, Ellie and Ruby. They are both very different and complex characters. (I think both girls will have their own books and I couldn’t be happier.)  *Torin Beale is another great character. Tor is a mysterious boy who shows up in Cami’s life and shakes things up. He is sweet, a little dangerous, and has a good heart. (“Hi I’m Tor. And you’re Cami. You’re beautiful, and you don’t talk because you’re nervous. So people end up talking to you a lot, because you listen. And because they want things out of you.”) So great! *The White Queen is super creepy and super evil. I don’t want to say too much about her but you will love to hate her.  Cami’s story and the world that she lives in is unique and will stay with you long after you finish reading. I can’t wait for the next installment in this series. This is great storytelling and everyone should go out and get their copy today.

A great, modernized retelling of a classic story with a completely original plot and subject matter. Extremely interesting from beginning to end! I love Lili St. Crow's novels for an adult audience, but she shows the same amount of creativity and keeps the same level of fascinating characters in her "young adult" novels to make this worth reading for anyone.

Really liked this book. I wish the author could have explained some of the words that she used in the book, other than that I almost read the book in 3 days. The way the author retold the story really made the book worth reading!
