Cheyenne Wilde never believed in vampires. That is until her sixteenth birthday when she finds out that she’s not quite human and her family has been hiding a big secret from her. She’s not only a vampire but she’s the first Vânător that’s been born in over 500 years. That means she is very special. That means she is a hunter. Thing is, there is something hunting her, it needs her blood. So, with all this stuff going on that is turning her world upside down, she’s also falling for the new boy, Ryan, there’s a girl at school who wants to make her life hell and her gymnast coach is working her hard to get her to the nationals. Life couldn’t be more peachy.

Wow, Amber Dawn Bell has written a really good young adult story that is full of adventure and dark, deadly secrets. I was totally captivated by this story and enjoyed every word. This author has captured the life of a young teenage girl perfectly and poor Cheyenne doesn’t only have the usual teenage problems, but a whole barrel of paranormal adventures to cope with. Ms Bells prose is very good and she certainly got my hair standing on end a few times. The story takes twists and turns and not everyone in the story is who they make out to be. I think young adults will love this story and adults too. I’m certainly looking forward to the next installment and further adventures of Cheyenne Wilde.
