Description/Synopsis:

In A Shade Of Blood, Bella Forrest transports you deeper into a unique, enthralling and beautifully sensitive story. Prepare to be lost in its pages…

When Sofia Claremont was kidnapped to a sunless island, uncharted by any map and ruled by the most powerful vampire coven on the planet, she believed she’d forever be a captive of its dark ruler, Derek Novak.

Now, after months of surviving an endless night, the morning sun may soon rise again for Sofia. Something has possessed Derek’s heart and he offers her a gift no human slave has ever been given in the history of his cursed island: escape.

High school, prom and a chance to move on with her life now await her.

But will she be able to forget the horrors that steal her sleep away at night? … and the feelings that haunt her for that tormented prince of darkness?

Review – MAY CONTAIN SPOILERS

Nothing all that much happened in this book, it just seemed like a bunch of set up for things that were to come in the next few books.

Ben instantly got on my nerves in this book. He found something out about Derek that Sofia wasn’t going to like, and for pages we were dealing with him going on and on about how he couldn’t tell her and then in the first conversation they had he told her. In my kindle I made a note of you gave that up quick didn’t you. His name for Sofia got on my nerves and I HATED the fact that they got together. It was just stupid. Stupid love triangle trying to go one way when we know that our girl has no feelings for the other guy in that way. It was just so forced. Ben kept getting mad about it but even he knows she doesn’t feel that way about him yet he tries and tries anyway… Then he moves on and hits on another girl pretty much straight after Sofia came to her senses. Gah.

Everyone in this book wants everyone. Specially Sofia. I really don’t see what is so great about her. I have a horrible feeling this is a trend that will continue on through the series… And I mean everyone wants her. EVERYONE. She is really quite dumb in this book, and I think Derek needs a good slap. I wouldn’t want them with anyone else however.

Most of the characters are a bit of a bore but in the last few chapters things picked up and I wanted to get more out of the story. We get introduced to the hunters which I found really interesting. It was cool to see how they function. We also got to meet Sofia’s parents for the first time and I really wanted to know more about them but of course we didn’t get them until the very end of the book. Their identities were suppose to be a big shock but I guessed them both before they revealed who they were.

Sorry this seemed to mostly a review to bash Ben, but yeah. This book was a great big set up for things to come. This book really frustrated me, but there was enough in it that I will continue to read the series so I can see where a few things go or get resolved.

Till Next Time…
