This lovely vampire book is a great read. You will feel the characters pain and you will be one with the book. This story of Jessica meeting the vampire prince is truly remarkable. Recommended for around 13+ ( )

Spiacente ma... Grossa delusione, anche se avrei dovuto capirlo dal titolo...
Me l'ha consigliato un'amica, dicendomi che era (cito testualmente) super-favoloso ma l'unico momento che sono riuscita a trovare "super-favoloso" è quando il vampiro belloccio di turno si becca una forconata sui piedi...
Proprio non riesco a farmelo piacere... Anche se all'inizio la storia non sembrava poi così male... :/ ( )

Jessica Parker has her senior year all planned out. That is until Lucius Vladescu appears claiming Jessica is actually his long lost vampire princess. Trials and tribulations are ahead as Jessica comes to terms with vampire society and navigating her final year of high school.

3.5 stars. My feelings are torn on this. I didn't find any of the characters particularly likable. Lucius has his moments. I especially liked his letters to his uncle. I enjoyed the story, but since the characters were rather "meh", it was far less enjoyable. ( )

I liked the break from the gender norms throughout, and the plot was interesting, but the ending left a weird taste in my mouth. ( )

"Jessica evolves nicely with each new shocking revelation, becoming, over the course of the novel, intriguing and strong protagonist...romance buffs will find the ultimate pairing of Lucius and Jessica absolutely irresistible, and it's downright swoonworthy once their elaborate courting ritual begins in earnest."
added by Awesomeness1 | editThe Bulletin
"This first novel quickly bursts ahead of the pack of Twilight wannabes...The romance sizzles, the plot develops ingeniously and suspensefully, and the satire stings."

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0152063846, Hardcover)

The undead can really screw up your senior year . . .

Marrying a vampire definitely doesn’t fit into Jessica Packwood’s senior year “get-a-life” plan. But then a bizarre (and incredibly hot) new exchange student named Lucius Vladescu shows up, claiming that Jessica is a Romanian vampire princess by birth—and he’s her long-lost fiancé. Armed with newfound confidence and a copy of Growing Up Undead: A Teen Vampire’s Guide to Dating, Health, and Emotions, Jessica makes a dramatic transition from average American teenager to glam European vampire princess. But when a devious cheerleader sets her sights on Lucius, Jess finds herself fighting to win back her wayward prince, stop a global vampire war—and save Lucius’s soul from eternal destruction

(retrieved from Amazon Thu, 12 Mar 2015 18:10:54 -0400)

Seventeen-year-old Jessica, adopted and raised in Pennsylvania, learns that she is descended from a royal line of Romanian vampires and that she is betrothed to a vampire prince, who poses as a foreign exchange student while courting her.
