...then I got to this prequel novella!! Which I loved! It gave me exactly what I had missed from the first book of the series. This prequel gives an insight to the relationship of some of the characters of the story in the series. After reading this I am once more very expectant and will start reading the second book of the series with vigor.

"Cassie squeezed his hand, keeping her head on his shoulder and forcing him to loosen up and continue dancing. The song played on. They danced like they were the only two people in the world. Daniel entertained thoughts of spiriting her off the dance floor and sneaking off to a secluded location.  He jumped, startling Cassie, when a warm hand fell on his shoulder. The heat was unmistakable; the second thumb was unnerving. He turned, coming face-to-face with the red-haired vaempire. 'Are you trying to keep the princess all for yourself?' the man asked. He smiled, but it failed to reach his green eyes. Instead, they held an accusation and a hint of something else - a threat, perhaps - that Daniel couldn't identify.  It triggered primal instincts. Daniel's gums throbbed and fingertips pulsed as fangs and claws prepared to come online. It shocked him, but he held them at bay with an effort, reminding himself that losing his temper could have implications far beyond the embarrassment it would cause everyone in the room. Hell, wars had been started over less."  The first book in this series really pulled me in from the beginning, and I couldn't wait to dive into the prequel. Don't read them out of order, though. The author made sure to let me know that A White Christmas is meant to be reader after Vaempires: Revolution. After reading it, it's perfectly clear why you have to read them in that order to appreciate the story. The book begins with a great action scene, which I've come to expect from Mr. Winship, and he doesn't disappoint.  Vaempires: A White Christmas does more than set the stage for the coming devastation in the rest of the series. Winship does an amazing job of setting up the love story between Princess Cassandra and Daniel, the son of the head of the royal guard. The bond between the two vampires is explored, giving the needed strength to their tireless resolve in Vaempires: Revolution.  Winship effortlessly weaves in the backstory the reader needs without slowing down the plot. Not only is the relationship between Daniel and Cassie grown in this installment, but the reader learns just how close they are to their families, making the losses they suffer later all the more heart-wrenching.  Despite all the knowledge the reader brings to the table after having read Vaempires: Revolution, there's no lack of new information and intrigue in this installment of the series. I feel even closer to Daniel and Cassie and their cause now that I understand more about their beginnings. The author even provides a better glimpse into the way vampires view humans while showcasing his ability to weave humor into serious situations.  I especially appreciated the season of the book, having read it during the Christmas break, but I assure you that it will be enjoyed year-round.  I highly recommend that fans of Vaempires: Revolution read A White Christmas directly following it. The relationships are beautifully fleshed out, and the up-and-coming revolution is more understandable after having read this book.
