    Lara Callahan has come to the small town of Pinewood to start over and to hide. Devon Shane has come looking for answers. When the wary woman and mysterious man take roles in a community theater production, they risk far more than the judgment of an audience. They risk their very lives.

    The story is absolutely great. I liked to hear it. The characters are well described and the suspense is almost touchable.

    But sometimes I had to laugh because of the voice. The voice of the herione is a bit too high, too fragile and it sounds slightly pathetic. Some voices are so low it was funny. A woman (the storyteller) trying to talk like big man of 300 pounds who is very serious, is just amusing in the wrong way.

    But that doesn't destroy the effects of romance and suspence. Its a lovely exiting and sometimes even funny story and I would recommend it to anyone who loves romance with the edge of a detective.

    Waking up in a tacky coffin and wearing off-brand shoes, Betsy Taylor can't believe the horrible turn her life has taken; then she discovers she's a vampire. Soon, Betsy becomes a participant in a power struggle between the forces of darkness. With only her friend Jessica and the hunky vampire Sinclair to help her, this new "Queen of Vampires" will have a tough time getting her afterlife straight.

    Overall

    Although in Holland 'Betsy' is a common name for a cow, and yes, I had to get over that, this Elizabeth is really really cool. When she thinks she's a zombie she tries to kill herself, several times, and when that doesn't work, she gets wicked.

    'What are you gonna do? Kill me?'

    Its like the devil wears Prada. Literally. I was laughing out loud every 10 minutes or so becuase she's so adorable. When other vampires want her to help destroi another she doesn't want to go with them. But then it appeares they have bought 10 pairs of very nice shoes and she's all over them. "I can't believe we are bribing our future queen with designershoes" sights an old-but-younglooking vampire girl. But hey, it works!

    This book is perfect for fashionistas who love romance and comedy, and don't mind the paranormal surroundings. If you do- Betsy will talk you through it, this book is great.

    St. Vladimir's Academy isn't just any boarding school - it's a hidden place where vampires are educated in the ways of magic and half-human teens train to protect them. Rose Hathaway is a Dhampir, a bodyguard for her best friend Lissa, a Moroi Vampire Princess. They've been on the run, but now they're being dragged back to St. Vladimir's - the very place where they're most in danger.

    Overall

    Wauw! I just finished listning to this book and I absolutely loved it! It's very well written. It also reminded me of Harry Potter by the way. Also gossiping students locked up in an acient (looking) building, magic powers and big threads to the main characters.

    I really like that the girl who's tells the story, Rose, is a non-magic kick-ass guardian who trains every day. I like tough (and ruthless!) heroins. :)

    Altough, unlike Harry Potter which I once red to 10 and 12 year olds, I'm not very comfortable with the idea of 13 year old boys reading this stuff too. There is a some talk about sex, so-called 'bloodwhores' and at some point we have some nicely described nudity. Further, we have some dead animals, some dead vampires, very much passing out, not too shocking. It is a story about special teens, but not for teens who aren't at least a little mature.

    Oh, the story is also very funny because told by Rose. Your sort of in her head, and her head is pretty amusing.

    Anyway, a perfect 10! (in US straigt A?)
