For once the man of your dreams finally exists!

After the unexpected death of her parents, seventeen-year-old Elizabeth is left with several mysteries to solve.

This book is a fun new look at the paranormal world of werewolves and vampires. Gracie Ray does an amazing job bringing a new character into the mix with the blood singer. I really enjoyed this story! There were a couple times where the pace slowed down a little bit but I don’t think the action of the story would have had the same effect if it hadn’t been explained so well. The main character Lizzie has a lot of spunk and really grows as the book progresses. Tristan…Tristan… not only is he a hottie but he is the knight in shining armor every girl dreams about and lucky Lizzie actually gets him! A lot of research went into creating the story, and you can tell. Gracie made sure you knew exactly what her characters were getting into as soon as you needed to. I loved all of the facets of this story, from the very beginning you knew something was different with Lizzie and Lexi’s Uncle Chriss but just how different was something even I didn’t expect. The history she poured into the story was an absolute blessing. Over all I think this story was great, I will definitely be reading the second book. All I have to say is, the end is worth the wait.
