I'll begin by honestly saying I do not like vampire books and just downloaded this as it was on free promotion. I had previously tried Twilight and just couldn't get into it and thought this would be more of the same. Boy was I wrong! This is more than a romance, though the many steamy scenes added plenty of romance and passion, and again not scenes that are normally my cup of tea! However as a fan of science fiction and fantasy and more inspirational themes I was very taken with the back world and back history of the vampire race that Hughes has created. It fleshed out the whole vampire mythology for me and for the first time I actually wanted to know more about the vampires, where they came from, their belief system and their origins. I really enjoyed this book and the three love relationships it contained also fleshed out the value system from different angles. I'm still not a vampire fan but I would read another by Hughes, especially if she ever decides to really go for it and write a prequel that takes us even further into the world the vampires come from and still visit. If I liked it this much then I can only imagine that real vampire fans will absolutely love it.
