Marking the second anniversary of the release of A Shade of Vampire, Derek, Sofia and their twins have returned in new adventures!
I never could have imagined that Derek and I would willingly turn back into vampires. But there are some things in life that you just can't predict. Like the strange human disappearances that started happening on the coasts surrounding us. There would have been nothing mysterious about these kidnappings so close to our own turf, had The Shade's vampires not given up drinking human blood almost two decades ago.... Book your ticket back to The Shade. Buy now!
Note: This book directly follows A Break of Day: A Shade of Vampire, Book Seven.

I am in to this series and will continue to the end. All of the narrations have been great up until this book when Caleb was introduced. The Caleb narrator is just awful. He stumbles over words and sounds as though is in just reading words off of a page. He pauses and puts inflections in all of the wrong places. It's totally distracting since he is the main male character. I will have to try very hard to focus on the story and not his horrible narration in the future books. Too bad no one really listened to how he sounds compared to a dynamic narrator like the narrator for Kiev who is great in this series. Still a fan but had to write a review on this one.
I wish it wasn't over. every time I come to the last few chapters I get sad knowing it's going to end
The story was pretty good but I could have done with out the swear words. I loved the audible narration, though It took me a couple of books to adjust to the characters varied voices. It has an interesting story line but some of it does slightly mirror the original book that kicked off the series. The end will have you jumping for the next book.
I'll read just about anything!
Well, I was intrigued in the beginning and even got sucked in but as soon as I started to embrace the story the book was over. This book was to rushed and didn't have enough development. They just started the plot and then the book was over. I get that they want to suck you in but at least leave off on a better cliff hanger.... Or something after more development happens. It was also too similar to the first shade book with just a slightly different twist. I was hoping with a little more of a storyline here. I will read the next one but if it's just as disappointing I will discontinue reading the series. 😐
The Novak twins are all grown up and ready for adventures of their own. Like most teens they want to go on a grown up adventure before they become vampires. The adventure leads to trouble and a possible love interest for one of the twins.
I was disappointed Rose told most of the story in this book. I'm fine with kids growing up and becoming part of the players, but Sofia had very little time in this book. If your using all the narrators, it would have been nice to have had Sophia and Derek's point of view during the major plot line. That made no sense. And while I'm all for the love at first sight, Rose showed no concern for what happen to her because she likes Caleb. Again understand it's turning into a love story, but the author really made it seem she was suffering from Stockholm syndrome. I also felt that the author took certain pieces of the book from other series. Twilight.,Immortals After Dark, etc.. The author does do a good job of having all kinds of twists in her story's, but I can see several things that have been pulled from other series.
However, I will get the next book. They aren't bad, but they aren't completely original.
