In one dark and fateful night, everything about seventeen year old Lucinda Malone’s life changes. Having already lost both of her parents, Lucy loses the one remaining person she can rely on—and, worst of all, she loses her to a darkness she never knew existed, but to which she had always felt drawn.
The moment Lucy discovers that there’s another world existing within her own—that vampires and casters aren’t just mythical beings—she feels nothing. Nothing but a quiet acceptance. For as long as she can remember, she’s dreamed of the darkness. She’s felt its pull, calling out to her—but it isn’t until she meets Darren O’Connor—the vampire who saves her life—that it all begins to make sense.
I am really not sure where to start here. For most of the book Lucy and Darren were held up in a hotel room after just meeting because some bad vampires were looking for Lucy. She instantly falls in love with Darren and of course he feels he is no good for her. Sound familiar. Don’t get me wrong, this was a pretty good book and I am curious enough to find out where it leads in the next one. However the hole time I was reading it I was thinking twilight ripoff.
After everything that Lucy has been threw in here life (her mother dying, her father dying, being emancipated so she can live on her own before graduation), you would think she wouldn’t be as naive as she comes across. There a few hints that she should catch on to, but for what ever reason she doesn’t.
Darren’s character has lived a long time and done many things. Most of them not good, and if it wasn’t for the witch I get the impression that he probably would still be doing them. He leaves Lucy in the dark about a few things, which I always have a problem with.
