What do you do when the one you love is also you worst enemy?
Trapped in a destiny she does not want, Cassie finds herself lost and adrift, until he walks into her life, turning it upside down and awakening her in ways that she never dreamed possible.
Cassie is stunned and devastated to learn that she belongs to a long line of vampire slayers known as The Hunters. A murderous rampage by a group of elder vampires has left the Hunter line decimated and the remaining Hunters scattered around the world. With her friends Chris and Melissa’s aid, Cassie struggles to rid the world of the monsters that murdered her parents. Though Cassie knows it is her fate, she chafes against her heritage, and is resentful of the shortened lifespan that has been placed upon her by the circumstances of birth. Struggling to get through every day, Cassie finds herself simply going through the motions of living. That is, until Devon arrives. Tall, dark, and mysterious his arrival turns the school, and Cassie’s life, upside down. Fighting against her fierce attraction to him, and the chaos he represents in her carefully ordered days, she is irresistibly drawn to him. Though worried that what she truly is will place Devon in danger, she is unable to fight her feelings for him. He is the one light, and the only source of hope she has in a world that revolves around death and fear. What she does not know is that Devon has some dark secrets of his own, secrets even more frightening and dangerous than hers. Secrets that threaten to tear them apart forever.

Customer Reviews

Major editing needed.

While the actual story has potential I found it difficult to finish this book.

The author goes on, and on, and oh wait...on some more about the connection and attraction between the male and female leads. So much focus is spent on them that there is little character development beyond them.

It was also very predictable and glosses over everything except this intense obsession between the lead characters.

I found it difficult to like the characters and was absolutely shocked to see how many more books there are in this series. I also saw many typos and misspellings that a decent editing could fix. I had high hopes for Buffy like epicness but was left with mediocrity at best.

Story line

The story line was good really drug along a lot of repeating. But a great book can't wait to see wut happens next.
