A Shade Of Vampire Review

Hello, so something a little different this week, I received a lovely email from an author named Bella Forrest the other day, asking for an honest review in exchange for a copy of her novel. I am a vivid book worm, and I write lots of reviews on Goodreads (www.goodreads.com) so it was honestly a privilege. All the views are my own, I would not lie to the people who read this, as I believe honestly to tell the truth about reviews. 



Bella Forrest has wrote numerous books, most famous for the "Shade of Vampire" series, "Beautiful Monster" series and "Fall with me." She was #1 Christmas Bestseller in Vampire Romance, Paranormal & Fantasy on amazon too. 



Okay so lets get on with the book, 

The story follows Sofia Claremont and Derek Novak, the two protagonists. Sofia is captured on her 17th birthday, by a coven of vampires, to become a slave for them, like many other humans, on a forbidden island, protected by the vampires and a witch. Derek Novak is the most powerful vampire, who after waking up after 400 years sleep, falls in love with the innocent Sofia.  The novel follows Sofia in her attempt to escape, or does she actually want to? Her main reason for leaving the gruesome vampires might just be the reason she wants to stay. 



I love this story, if you love the Vampire Diaries or Twilight, then this book is for you, its a typical love story that you know isn't right, but you can't help but want more. I fell in love with Derek, and the naive but strong Sofia. The only thing wrong with it, is it is difficult at first to keep up, as each chapter is alternating between Sofia and Derek, however it is unusual and you know exactly what each is feeling. The book is left on the worst cliffhanger ever, literally having withdrawals.. 


Overall, I really enjoyed this book, it was a quick read, at only 149 page (I read far too quick) but it was brilliant, engaging storyline and left you reeling for more. well recommended.
