I must say that I find television very educational. The minute somebody turns it on, I go to the library and read a book. --Groucho Marx

Ever since Anastasija Parker found out she was a vampire princess, her life has been crazier than normal.  No longer just a witch trying to past her Initiation, as they say been there failed that. Now she’s the half-vampire- half-witch trying to find a small amount of balance between the two sides of her life that want to kill each other. There’s nothing more Ana wants than to be normal and trying out for the spring musical seems like the perfectly normal thing to do. Thought that’s about the only normal thing going on in her life right about now. Ana has a lot of her plate this time around she’s still trying to figure out how to be both vampire and witch (who are mortal enemies by the way), she’s a little sure how to handle her things with her sometimes, maybe boyfriend Nikolai (Nik) Kirov, vampire hunter in training, and rock star. Then there’s Elisa Constantine, her vampire knight fiancée. And if that wasn’t enough to deal with someone has stolen the ancient talisman that stands between vampire freedom and slavery to witches it up to Ana to find it. No one knows what happen to Ana if someone uses it to make the vampires, slaves to the witches once more.

This book pick up where the last left off, Ana is still unsure about a lot of things but she knows that she doesn’t want to be a slave to anyone. If there was a word between love and like I would totally in it with this book. Ms. Hallaway captures Ana and her world perfectly making the reader feel like their apart it and not just on the outside looking in. I could everything and all of the character in my head. Hallaway makes Ana so easy to relate to, even though most people can’t claim to be half vampire half witch (who knows what’s out there) we can understand on some level how Ana is feeling. I find that Ana to be unsure and misunderstood, I don’t think out of all of the character in the book no ones tries to see things from Ana’s point of view. No one realizes how hard things are for her and how well she’s handling things. I like that Ana is trying to learn more about herself from people on both sides. This was a really good book and a must read for anyone, who loves great reads.

This book will out May 3 so pre-order you copy.
