Book Review: A Shade Of Vampire By Bella Forrest

A Shade Of Vampire 
(A Shade of Vampire #1) 
By Bella Forrest

Published: December 14th 2012 
ISBN13: 9781481280761

On the evening of Sofia Claremont's seventeenth birthday, she is sucked into a nightmare from which she cannot wake.
A quiet evening walk along a beach brings her face to face with a dangerous pale creature that craves much more than her blood.

She is kidnapped to an island where the sun is eternally forbidden to shine.

An island uncharted by any map and ruled by the most powerful vampire coven on the planet. She wakes here as a slave, a captive in chains.

Sofia's life takes a thrilling and terrifying turn when she is the one selected out of hundreds of girls to join the harem of Derek Novak, the dark royal Prince.

Despite his addiction to power and obsessive thirst for her blood, Sofia soon realizes that the safest place on the island is within his quarters, and she must do all within her power to win him over if she is to survive even one more night.

Will she succeed? ...or is she destined to the same fate that all other girls have met at the hands of the Novaks?

My Review:

This book started out like any other vampire book out there and since I'm a sucker for kidnapped by the big bad vampire novels I was pulled in from the start. Though by page 70 (eBook) I had a sense of déjà vu. Since I watch and read A LOT of vampire movies/TV series/books, I guess it was to be expected.

Sofia was WAY TOO innocent and, since she's SO lucky, got pawed at the first 5 minutes of being captured. The trauma only piled on from there. I found it funny that almost every vampire pushed her up against a wall (and not in the sense of what you're thinking. Get your head out of the gutter C:). Though there was insta-Love found in this novel it did take a while to to appear and by then it was somewhat believable (if you tried VERY hard to just ignore it).

We'll get on the topic of Derek in a minute. First things first: Ben. I have never loathed a fictional childhood BFF as much as I did Ben. From what Sofia says about him it seems like he controls her (even without knowing it he influences her). It seems like if he tells her to jump off a bridge she'll actually consider it if he keeps pushing. She has to have a backbone and make up her OWN damn mind.

Derek. I respected him from the beginning. He wasn't overly nice and gentle, but he wasn't a jackass either. He respected her and she respected him. Towards the ending (just when their relationship was getting somewhere) the story had to end and Ben had to appear. I totally intend on finding out what happens next C:

Favorite Quotes:

"(...) blood runs thicker than water."

"She was no longer mine. In fact, it was the exact opposite. At some point during all those times I'd spent with her, I'd become hers."

"Whether I like it or not, home had become wherever Derek Novak was."
