She doesn’t know why anything is happening. She only knows that her life is in danger and she’s falling in love with Liam, a vampire.
The story has a lot of potential to become a sweeping & epic Urban Fantasy novel. There were several elements of the book that I liked but I had a hard time staying within the story as a reader due to structural & technical errors. I like the ideas the book is based on. I do not like the book as a whole because I felt that I had to make the story become whole by rationalizing as a reader rather than having the story come together because of the way it’s written.
