Blood Slave.

Captured, taken from her beloved family and woods, Aria’s biggest fear is not the imminent death facing her, but that she will be chosen as a blood slave for a member of the ruling vampire race. No matter what becomes of her though, Aria knows she must keep her identity hidden from the monsters imprisoning her. She has already been branded a member of the rebellion, but the vampires don't know the true depth of her involvement with it, and they must never know.

Though hoping for death, Aria’s world is turned upside down when a vampire named Braith steps forward to claim her. He delays her execution, but Aria knows it’s only a matter of time before he drains her, and destroys her. Especially once she learns his true identity as a prince within the royal family, who started the war that ultimately brought down humankind, reducing them to nothing more than servants and slaves. Aria is determined to hate the prince, determined not to give into him in any way, but his strange kindness and surprising gentleness astonish her. Torn between her loyalties to the rebellion, and her growing love for her greatest enemy, Aria struggles to decide between everything she has ever known and a love she never dreamed of finding.

Twilight/billionare club in da future!

So I read/skimmed through the whole book. If I were a teenager of 13 I probably would think this book was cool, but as I am not a teen I thought it was cliche and the way the characters emotions changed from minute to minute was unrealistic.

Also, as another reader said it was kinda twilighty lol. And I will add that since she was a poor rebel and he a prince, they belong to the billionare club/fifty shades story lines.

The idea was a little interesting, but I think all the "swirl" and "rush" of "brutal" repetitive emotions overshadowed the plot.

I always read books to the end even if I don't like it much just in case it somehow changes at the last minute. The book got good ratings so I figured I needed to keep going to get the to good stuff...

Hmmm if you aren't a fan of teen paranormal fantasy (as i am not) this is not for you. But if twilight and beautiful creatures is your cup of tea then his book be for yooooou. :)
