Lilith Carson was a normal girl whose parents died suddenly. She moves to a different state with her aunt, and she cuts herself off from everyone. Until one day, when her crush appears beside her in the library. From there, they fall in love, fast and hard.
Lilith finds out that when she turns eighteen, she will transform into a Vampire-Witch hybrid. When a vampire conceives a female, that female already has a mate chosen for her. When Lilith was conceived, there was a mistake. Her world is turned upside down when she must choose between two guys she barely knows.
Lilith has chosen the guy of her dreams and has settled into a life that she thinks is perfect. But nothing is ever as it seems. She will soon face the ultimate betrayal by someone she loves deeply.
The blurb for this really caught my attention. I love a good old PNR read, and this seemed like a good vampire tale with a twist.
The story and the concept itself is very good, and quite unique, which in itself is very attractive to a reader. Lilith, approaching her 18th birthday is an orphan, brought up by her aunt, has just moved to a new town and who does not seem to get along with anyone, and is quite happy to be by herself and loves to read.
She is approached by a group at school, who keep to themselves also. Odin has been watching her when she was not looking and the attraction between them is like wildfire. But as her 18th birthday approaches, and truths will be revealed, she finds herself in mortal danger with newly acquired skills she has little control over.
Lilith has been through a lot, but her character at times made me want to scream with frustration. Whereas Odin has the patience of a saint with her, and is a truly likable character. Be warned this is a bit of a love triangle in this story, but as such the reason why will be revealed, this is not due to cheating reasons!!
I thoroughly enjoyed the story, which ends suddenly in a cliffhanger, hopefully there will be a further book to answer the tonne of questions I have!!
But I wasn’t particularly keen on the authors style of writing – it just didn’t pull me into the story or captivate me in any way, it seems to be descriptively lacking in that certain something that gets you lost in the story, which is a shame as the storyline has a lot going for it.
Given that I still recommend giving it a go for the story itself – a good 3.5 stars.
