*~SYNOPSIS~*In A Shade Of Blood, Bella Forrest transports you deeper into a unique, enthralling and beautifully sensitive story.
Prepare to be lost in its pages…
When Sofia Claremont was kidnapped to a sunless island, uncharted by any map and ruled by the most powerful vampire coven on the planet, she believed she’d forever be a captive of its dark ruler, Derek Novak.
Now, after months of surviving an endless night, the morning sun may soon rise again for Sofia. Something has possessed Derek’s heart and he offers her a gift no human slave has ever been given in the history of his cursed island: escape.
High school, prom and a chance to move on with her life now await her.
But will she be able to forget the horrors that steal her sleep away at night? … and the feelings that haunt her for that tormented prince of darkness?
Ever have those books that when you finish one, you want to immediately read the next one because you are so involved in the series? Well this book and series fits that Bill. The writing is phenomenal, the story is just awesome itself. The mixture out modern day atmosphere, with a scene like what you saw in the old 90`s film "Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves" with the living up in the trees. Very vivid world Bella Forest has created for us.
In "A Shade of Vampire" we were left with Sophia and Derek kissing as he was helping her and her best friend Ben escape. In "A Shade of Blood" we're still in that same scene, but Sophia is debating on whether she really wants to leave the Shade and Derek, or to escape with Ben and go back to her old life.
BACK at home Sophia and Ben try to go back to being normal, however can they ever be normal now, after the things Claudia did to Ben, and the unrepentant feelings Sophia still has for Derek.
back at the Shade Derek is turning more dark everyday since Sophia left, and he's letting the darkness consume him despite the warnings if his twin sister Vivienne kept telling him.
This book is filled with twists and turns at every corner, and a shockingly surprising ending. I would put more into this review about what happens in the book but I don't want to spoil any of the goodies inside, so if you are dying to know what happens next, then you need to pick up A Shade of Blood and sink your teeth into this deliciously entrancing story.
