A Novella by Elisabeth Wheatley
Hadassah’s father, the Vampire King, punished her harshly for her choice to love a human. Now her brother, the only person in the world who still matters to her, has fallen for a human girl. Determined to keep the girl safe, the three of them flee from their home in New England and find themselves cornered with their father’s minions closing in. If they want to escape, their only hope may be to join forces with the mortal enemies of their kind…
Why, oh why did I take so long to finish this, the first novella I have ever read? It certainly wasn’t because the story didn’t hook me right away. I read it in just two sittings with a huge break of several weeks in between. Once I found the time to settle in with my Kindle that second time I was kicking myself for waiting so long.
Kudos to Elizabeth Wheatley for great character development and a compelling plot! Although Vampire stories are not usually my kind of read, I found myself rooting for the main character. Gotta love a strong female lead!
Don’t make my mistake. Make the time to read this one. It’s pure fun from start to finish.
