Synopsis: "Throughout all my histories, I found no one I loved more than one."
Those were some of Rhode's last words to me. The last time he would pronounce his love. The last time I would see his face.
It was the first time in 592 years I could take a breath. Lay in the sun. Taste. Rhode sacrificed himself so I, Lenah Beaudonte, could be human again. So I could stop the blood lust.
I never expected to fall in love with someone else that wasn't Rhode.But Justin was...daring. Exciting. More beautiful than I could dream.I never expected to be sixteen again...then again, I never expected my past to come back and haunt me...

            This, this is one ultimate vampire themed book. It’s one of the best Young Adult books I’ve read so far. It gives an extraordinary twist to the mythological nature of vampire. I love the plot, it’s quite amazing and every scene is unpredictable. The writing is exceptional, and every detail was finely described. I love how the flashback parts get coordinated with the present scenes and it doesn’t jumble up and made me wonder on what’s going on.

            The romantic moments of Lenah and Rhode are very interesting even though it was emphasized in the flashbacks. It’s sad and yet it’s really romantic that Rhode sacrificed himself just so Lenah could attain her human body once again. Rhode is a very noble and a man of his words. I’m just disappointed that I only saw glimpses of him in this book. Lenah is one of the best female protagonists that I’ve known and come to love. She’s smart, brave and she could easily fit in with her environment even though the time she remembers has long been gone. The other characters are also exceptional with different sort of personalities that I can’t help not to notice. I’m just a little sceptical with Justin and Lenah’s relationship due to its rush.

            The climax part made my heart jump and I never foresee the events that’s about to happen. I’m just a little disappointed to meet the ending in a very fast rate although it’s an ending that made me crave for the sequel and I hope I could see more of Rhode in the rest of the series.
