This is a young adult fantasy novel. It is about witches and vampires yet is unique in its approach to them. Alena Scott is half witch/ half vampire; a forbidden breed. She is raised by her mother who is the vampire chancellor. She is raised with the knowledge to assimilate into human society. Unfortunately with her weird diet, pale skin and being the new girl in school, she sticks out like a sore thumb. Trying to make friends and hiding what she is is proving to be difficult. Being a teenager with her hormones out of whack, there are times when she literally wants to rip someone’s throat out. There are so many secrets that she longs to uncover concerning her missing father and her powers. Meeting her childhood imaginary friend in the flesh, they work together to figure things out.

I think that this is an amazing start to this series. Although I was frustrated to know more details about Alena, the author threw out enough crumbs to keep me interested. There was intrigue, action and mystery. I enjoyed the fact that the main character wasn’t some all powerful being. I have a feeling that her powers will grow throughout the series and that’s how it should be. I’m so happy that she acted age appropriate. Alena is an inexperienced seventeen year old who I’m thrilled didn’t jump into bed right away with someone. She had the same questions and feelings that we all lived through at one point. I loved this book and look forward to reading more of this world that Ms. Copeland created.
