“Do you believe in things that go bump in the night?”
At only a few hours old, Angela is left on the steps of St Paul’s church. Alone in the world, the only link she has to her past is a pink blanket bearing an emblem with two crossed swords and a snake.
A troubled childhood spent in orphanages leads to Angela attempting to rebuild her shattered life as an adult. Meeting the priest who found her eighteen years previously, she gets a job and a boyfriend, and settles into her new life.
Until she meets Jack.
Drawn to her new boss, she throws herself into work, feeling an unusual bond with people she hasn’t known very long.
Angela becomes embroiled in this new life, feeling a change within herself. A change which isn’t altogether human. Within this change she finds a terrifying secret…a secret which involves her past, her present, and definitely her future…
I won a gift certificate to Moon Rose Publishing last Friday duringFun FB Friday and it was on my list of #FridayReads last week. I did read it over the weekend, I just had so many other things I needed to get posted that I hadn’t gotten it up yet.
I still don’t have my Friday Reads post for today up. It is Friday right? I think the 4th threw me off my blogging schedule.
Once I started reading, I wasn’t sure if I was going to like the book (don’t get nervous Caroline, promise!), if the writing style was one I would like, but after a little bit more reading, I really started getting into the story.
I figured out what was throwing me. I am used to reading books by American authors or those who write with American lingo. Once I settled into the British spelling and speaking, I was good to go, and sat back to enjoy the ride. I mean really, they did come up with the language first, we just twisted the stuff around to suit ourselves. I ended up truly enjoying this book a lot. It was different.
It’s so hard to go into what I liked without giving any spoilers, we all know I hate spoilers in a review. A lot I could say would give away different situations. Angela ends up being a very likable character for me (she’s had a rough life and has a hard outer shell) with some wicked dreams (I mean wicked good) that are extremely hot. There are a few other scenes…… wow. Caroline has quite the way with words. Not for the under 18 crowd.
I got to say I’m sad. Cuz Angela didn’t end up with….. can’t tell you. I honestly didn’t see that coming. You know what, it’s the twists that keep it interesting, that keeps us coming back for more. I want to know what is next for Angela and her cuddly teddy bear.
The whole story is an interesting twist on vampires that you don’t see a lot. Not your typical I got bit, turned, and I vant to suck your blood story.
Thank you Moon Rose Publishing and Caroline F. Levy for a thoroughly enjoyable read! I can’t wait to get my hands on the next one.
