I thought that this was a good first book in this series. The author, Danielle Rose is a good writer. She did infuse life into Avah, Jasik, and the rest of the characters in this book. I got a nice sense of the vampires. Which in this case they were not the evil ones. Just the ones that they fought were the evil ones.

Danielle did a wonderful job of taking me the reader through the progression of Avah's transformation from a witch to a newly formed vampire. The urges, fear, loss, and strength. There was also the chemistry shared between Avah and Jasik. The romance slowly built up but was not overly sexual. With each new battle Avah's powers and strengths grew. Not just as a vampire but as a witch as well. If you liked the Twilight series or any other vampire or witch themed series then you should check this book out. ( )

There was a war between witches and vampires. No one really recalls how it started, but the witches are taught that vampires are nothing but soulless killing creatures. In each generation a witch becomes The Chosen—after the last one dies--someone through ritual who is gifted with The Power of all of the elements. The prophesized role of The Chosen is to wipe out all vampires.

Avah has been training all her life to hunt and kill vampires and she’s very good at it. She’d recently been told that she’s The Chosen and is determined to succeed where her successors have failed. Only something happens during the coven ritual and she discovers that not only is the information taught by the witch elders incorrect but the role she expected to play is vastly different than she imagined.

I was provided a copy of this story in exchange for a review of this debut novel and I have to say first and foremost that this is a very polished story with really good editing, world and character building. This doesn’t read like a first novel.

There’s a number of greatly detailed action scenes as well as angst on Avah’s part for the change in her circumstances as she learns to deal with the major twist in her life. That is to be expected, but was just starting to get old when she finally begins to accept what she is. There is also quite a bit of sexual tension and a romance.

I found the story interesting and it kept my attention enough to read it in one sitting. I’d like to see what happens next. ( )
