Summary

You've never met vampires like this before...
_____________________________________________

One last adventure. That's all Riley wants before heading off to college and parting ways with her two best friends.

Spending their last summer together on a Texas farm in the middle of nowhere isn't quite as exciting as they'd planned... 

That is, until they stumble upon secrets no human should know.

Men who appear and disappear. 

A giant wing hidden in the creek. 

Screams in the dead of night. 

Every oddity seems connected to their strange - and alarmingly attractive - new neighbors, led by the stormy-eyed Navan. For reasons she can't explain, Riley feels drawn to him and the story of his past. 

But Navan has a monstrous side, one that grants him incredible powers that are not of this world... and ashen skin that feels like fire to the touch.  

When events take a dangerous twist, Riley is determined to protect her friends at all costs, but as she unravels each thread of the mystery, she finds herself entangled in a supernatural conquest that is far bigger than Texas... and even Earth itself.  

A mystery.

A romance.

And a journey that could change the fate of the human race.

Prepare for a unique spin on the lore you love - and an adventure that is as thrilling as it is unexpected.

Narration was the best thing about it

The plot was very slow and the characters boring and bland. The narration was good but that's its only redeeming quality. Shame I didn't like it as I like some of the authors other work.

If you have nothing better to do, read this book.

Struggle to finish it for real. Not as realistic as her other books. I hope it would get better then it was over. Narrated very well.

Couldn’t finish

This book was possibly for young adults. They did so many stupid things that I just couldn’t finish the book. I was attracted to the story line but it just wasn’t for me when I kept founding myself rolling my eyes at the stupidity of the characters.

I tried, I really tried

I couldn’t even finish the book. That’s how frustrating and slow it was. Barely anything happens for the longest time. It has a nice universe story, little different than the norm. Which is good but stilll it was toooo slowwww..

not for me

sorry but this story doesn't know what it wants to be. Characters take forever to develop . The folklore makes no sense at all. Hes the first vampire but hes not a vampire but hes the first to discover earth. There no chemistry between the main characters. This book was a waste of money.

Not as good as the shade.

I'm so sad that this one isn't very good. I was hoping for another bingeable series, but I struggled to finish it and had no urge to get the next one.

Updated review

I started off enjoying the series, managed to get to book 4 the just gave up. The details of the world are great and twist on how the author portrays different forms of life. I didn't even mind that the intimate scenes were PG. But every damn book was a cliffhanger. Truly upset because I did enjoy it and would have seen it through to the end. Unfortunately, I do not like giving up on books, but the cliff hanging ruined it for me. I'm not sure how I feel about the author I might check out a different book. But I'll be checking the reviews first. Over all I liked the narrator and for audible I'll be looking for more books read by her.

Amazing book and fantastic series!!!

The descriptions used to flesh out the characters was fantastic and held true throughout the whole series. Even from the first book reading how the characters develop and grow on their journey is enchanting. My most memorable part in this book was the theater scene. The narrator for this series does a fantastic job as well. She portrays each character so distinctively that it's easy to get lost in universe
