Ava Delaney is different, she’s not quite a vampire but not quite human either. When Ava’s mother was pregnant she was attacked and killed by a vampire, Ava was born right before her mother died and some of the vampire’s poison stayed in her making her somewhat of a hybrid.
Ava does everything she can to fight her cravings for blood and to live like a normal human shutting herself off from others to not harm them. When she comes across a man in danger from a vampire and steps in to help she accidentally claims Carl to keep the other vampire from hurting him. Not knowing how to break the bond Ava seeks help and gets into more than she bargained for in the vampire world.
Not a bad story really but I found myself a bit bored as it seemed to move rather slowly for a short novella. Also, I found Ava a bit frustrating during her first meeting with Peter, seems she’d have saved herself a lot of trouble if she would have just said her grandmother sent her.
Overall, didn’t grab me as much as I’d like but a bit of a different twist on vampires so some may like it.
