A modern day Aladdin reimagining told in the Blood and Snow world from Jasmine's point of view.
A dream is a wish your heart makes... At least that's what I've always read.
My name is Jasmine and I'm an original vampire. It's been a month since I agreed to the wish that would keep Laeddin safe. By all accounts I should be excited by the way things are. I'm attending high school, hanging out with friends, and spending time with Laeddin. But I'm not. Ever since the sorceress, Maleficent ripped away a part of me, I haven't felt like myself.
To make matters worse, the man with red eyes that haunted my dreams is appearing in real life and demonic creatures keep showing up in Salem. The question on both counts is why? I must figure out who the man with red eyes is and what the creatures want. Thankfully I'm not alone. Laeddin, Peter, Zoe, and some friends from the mansion next door are here to help.
I also need to deal with Maleficent. She’s using what she took from me to inflict havoc on the human realm as well as other realms.

This series so awesome that I'm so very upset that I don't have the next one right now! Really though I enjoy the characters and the depth of them. The series as a whole is pretty addictive, I read everything that's out in less than 3 days (had to keep up my homework too. Lol)
This whole series is very addicting! So good, you can't put the books down!
RaShelle Workman is the undisputable queen of the fractured fairytale genre and Vampire Secrets is no exception to this rule. It is now one month since Jasmine's encounter with Maleficent, where she sacrificed a part of herself to save Laeddin. Jasmine is emotional and incomplete without her vampire abilities and black wings, which distinguished her from other vampires and she is still adjusting to life as a human. Vampire Secrets is set after A Beauty So Beastly and the connection RaShelle Workman made between the two retellings is continued in this story, as we watch Troy struggling with the loss of Cole. His sadness bonds him to Jasmine and they form a comfortable friendship, which quickly develops into something more for them both. Although I relished every moment Troy and Jasmine share, I found Jasmine's indecision about her feelings disconcerting and was unsure about the 'love square' which followed. Laeddin has an indispensable role in Vampire Secrets and Christopher's appearance adds a dangerous sexual tension to the story, but I always prefer a vanilla romantic plot! However, this is a very personal choice and I think for most readers this element will add to the story's intrigue and excitement. RaShelle Workman is able to build her urban fantasy/paranormal plot with the addition of new characters like the Akuma, who fit perfectly alongside the existing vampires, shapeshifters and other magical species. The Akuma and the threat they pose to Jasmine and her group of friends heightens the suspenseful atmosphere, making the story even more compelling. Any fans of RaShelle Workman will adore Vampire Secrets, the ending of which leaves us gasping and breathless! For any new readers I suggest grabbing the first season of Blood and Snow quickly and catching up before Vampire Nights is released! I received this as a complimentary review copy, but this has had no influence on my opinion.
I have the full collection of these books including Cindy Witch. I was lucky to have this as a pre-view from the author. What can I say, had me glued again, I got it and read it in the same day. Love Troy and we find out what he is and who his father is, Jasmine is great, so many decisions to make, we find out about Zoe and Peter, Christopher the hunter what is he upto? Can't wait for the next installment to find out what happens. Would highly recommend, if you haven't read the first season I would definitely read before you start season 2. Excellent read, couldn't put it down.
