'Gleaming White' by Terra Harmony is a very interesting read. A short story about vampires, the book doesn't take much time to finish. Add to it the fact that the story is quite gripping. A book that can be finished in just one sitting, Gleaming White is a story about two twins, one of whom, that is Gabriella, died after being turned into a vampire. Her twin sister, Isabella is the next victim. She becomes the fancy of a vampire Elder, Xavier and is on the way to bringing her sister back to life... A nice and different take on vampires, the next book in the series called 'Streaks Of Red', is one book to definitely look forward to! ( )

Isabelle and her mother have been on the run ever since she can remember. A strange disease that is passed on through the blood to every new generation attracts vampires from far and wide - a fact that neither woman can deny.

Having lost her father and her twin sister to the very evil that stalks them night by night, Isabelle finds herself haunted by memories she can't escape. Her heart yearns to be reunited with the part of her that's missing, but she knows that it's impossible. Gabriella is dead and will remain that way for the rest of eternity.

Intrigued by a book she's found at the library, she loses track of time and finds herself surrounded by a pack of vampires who refuse to let her go easily as she tries to make it back home. Inadvertently invoking a spell, she summons forth an entity that must protect her from those around her. Yet she never imagined that her doing so would have dire consequences.

Having attracted the elder vampire's interest, Isabella realizes that her days are numbered. Her blood sings to his and Xavier is convinced that she is the one he's meant to be with. She soon finds herself falling under his spell. Unable to truly break free, she accepts the fact that certain sacrifices must be made. Even if it means losing the one thing that has come to mean the most to her in such a short time.

While this was a short novella, it read and felt as if it were a novel. Terra has such a way of telling the story that you get hooked into it from the very start. While it ends on a cliffhanger, I'm pretty sure that the next part in the series won't disappoint. She's that good of writer and I truly recommend this book. ( )
