Summary of the book:
There’s only one way out
Belle Morte. One of five houses where vampires reside as celebrities and humans are paid to be their living donors. While others came here seeking fortune, I came in search of my sister who walked into Belle Morte five months ago . . . and never walked back out.
Now that I’m here, the secrets about this world have proven to be much bigger than I ever anticipated. And lurking around every corner are shocking insinuations of what happened to my sister.
There’s only one person who might have the answers I need, and the undeniable pull I feel toward him is terrifying: Edmond Dantès―a vampire, and my mortal enemy.
The harder I try to resist him, the further I fall under his spell. And in one instant my life is irrevocably changed. My past becomes prologue and my fate becomes sealed behind these doors.
Belle Morte has spoken. And it may never let me go.
My Review on the book:
The cover caught my eye while I was browsing at the books in Target one day. I picked this book up to read the jacket cover to learn what the book was about. Vampires! Hey now….this is so my jam. I’ve been reading about vampires since elementary school so why should I stop now? The story itself sounded interesting and I wanted to see what would happen. I could not resist, I ended up purchasing the book!
Well….I’m biased because….it has vampires in it! The story itself was easy to follow and for me I had a hunch on what would happen next. Most of my predictions was right. I did not mind that. That’s what stories do, right? You get to figure it out or you get to yell at the story or fall in love with the characters right? Everyone reacts differently.
So back to the story……The vampires in the story need food so therefore they need blood donors who come to the house to get paid for their time, given food and clothing and boarding while at the house. The problem is that the humans have to sign contract and they cannot leave until the vampires say so. Some do not even get to leave. This can be seen as good and bad depending on how you want to break it all down. Most donors that sign want to go.
Enters: Renie Mayfield! She decides to sign up as a blood donor because she is on a mission to find her sister, June who was a blood donor and had not been heard or seen in a while. She is worried for her sister. Renie is not like the other blood donors who are enamored by the glamor of vampires. While she is there on her mission to find out what happened. While she is on her mission, Edmond Dantès comes into the picture. She sees him as the enemy but as her investigation keeps going, she realizes there is more to him than meets the eye. An attraction looms over Renie and Edmond but will it happen? Humans and vampires are allowed to be together…so whatever shall happen? Will there be consequences? Also will Renie stay to her mission?
Go pick the book up at your local library, bookstore or online store if you want to know what will happen. I thought the book was a fun, adventurous, and semi predictable read! I really liked it and you bet I’m picking up book two when it comes out. I want to see what will happen next with the drama, action and consequences.
Vampire books – I will love you forever. (Don’t be surprised if you ever see more of any kind of vampire books popping up on my blog!)
