Review

A great take a Vampyre tale! The dual perspective and time jumps aren't confusing and it just adds to what already is a well paced story!

Saying that there isn't a great deal of background world building going on which I found unusual for the first book of a series and sometimes wished we'd been given a bit more information.  Hopefully this is something that will develop over the series

Overall,  this is a promising start to this new series! The book will keep your attention and reignite your love of vampire stories post Twilight
