No matter how much you try to leave your past behind, it doesn't always leave you…
After being hired for my dream job, I move back to the small-minded town where I grew up, for the job and to finish my degree.
I'm surrounded by my past, by old classmates, old neighbourhoods and old prejudices against gay people.
But on my first day back, my eyes fall on something new around here. A goth guy sitting at the front of the class and I can't keep my eyes off him.
Even though I don't know him, I feel like I need to protect him, no matter what.
I can't stay in the same place for too long. People start to notice that you don't age, that you don't get older, and add to that that the chance of vampire hunters finding you gets bigger the longer you stay…
I know that I'm running out of time in this town. I need to move on. I just need to finish my degree and then I can leave and start over somewhere else.
But when my housemate/blood donor turns on me and forces me to leave, I suddenly find myself asking for help from the new guy in our class.
Leaving doesn't look as appealing anymore…
This is the first short novel about vampire Jules and human Sean in The Vampire's Past series. It takes place in a world of all sorts of creatures, vampires, werewolves, mages and, of course, humans, but there are also hunters, trying to rid the world of the un-humans.

It was okay
This is an insta-love story for the two main characters, Jules and Sean. It was an okay story. I had tons of questions about holes in the stories: We don't know how Jules being a vampire and a runaway is able to attend classes without notice - you would think his parents are looking for him and the hunters are targeting him. And he's supposed to be working too but that's all that's mentioned; we don't know what kind of work and how he works considering he can only go out at sunset.
The minor characters were too cliche to be interesting. Sean's high school friend, Darren, was a typical homophobic jock. I didn't understand why Sean wanted to hang out with him. Or Darren to Sean.
The best part, what was interesting to me, is the mystery behind Lance's behavior, and why he's betraying Jules. I had wanted to know about that and how the hunter caught up to him. But the story ended abruptly. So this is a warning for those who hates major cliff-hangers.
I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review.
