Not suitable for tweens.
When Patrick is murdered, Katelina is left with questions. Jorick, one of his so-called friends, has answers of the darkest kind: Patrick was involved with – and betrayed – a coven of vampires; vampires that may now be after Katelina.
The tale is fantastic, but the proof appears in a flash of fangs that Katelina and Jorick only just escape. Taken to a secret mansion, she discovers horror in its halls and learns the truth about her protector. Blood and destruction follow, and leave scars Katelina may never heal from.
The disturbing opener to the Amaranthine series pulls Katelina into darkness that tastes like fear and smells like blood, a world where night is eternal and vampires don’t sparkle.
BONUS: Includes the first chapter of Legacy of Ghosts.
Not for the faint of heat, Shades of Gray moves at a dizzy pace from one threats of violence to actual violence as the heroine, Katelina struggles to survive her sudden entrance into the world of vampires. Real vampires, as in scary people eating ones. Exception: Katelina's hot protector Jorick.
Shades of gray
Somehow I thought this book was going to be more gruesome than it was. It's a great classic vampire book. Yes, there are gory fight scenes, but it's a compelling storyline.
Loved this book!
After reading the short stories I found myself impatient to get this one. I was not disappointed. Excellent story, flow and realistic characters. Would love to see this book in theaters. Can't wait to read the next one.
