Description: On the evening of Sofia Claremont's seventeenth birthday, she is sucked into a nightmare from which she cannot wake.
A quiet evening walk along a beach brings her face to face with a dangerous pale creature that craves much more than her blood.
She is kidnapped to an island where the sun is eternally forbidden to shine.
An island uncharted by any map and ruled by the most powerful vampire coven on the planet. She wakes here as a slave, a captive in chains.
Sofia's life takes a thrilling and terrifying turn when she is the one selected out of hundreds of girls to join the harem of Derek Novak, the dark royal Prince.
Despite his addiction to power and obsessive thirst for her blood, Sofia soon realizes that the safest place on the island is within his quarters, and she must do all within her power to win him over if she is to survive even one more night.
Will she succeed? ...or is she destined to the same fate that all other girls have met at the hands of the Novaks?
Review: I really enjoyed this book. There was only one problem I had when I began reading was the beginning of the plot and how Sofia got to The Shade. Once you overcome the little bit of missing information the story really takes life.
There was not a dull moment in the story. You have Derek the prince of the vampires who is conflicted and Sofia who was captured to service Derek. I was reading just for Derek to see how he deals with his inner struggles being around Sofia and not attacking her.
The development of their relationship was nicely done. Also the books ends with a cliff hanger and I'm hooked. I need to know what happens next.
