"On the evening of Sofia Claremont's seventeenth birthday, she is sucked into a nightmare from which she cannot wake.
A quiet evening walk along a beach brings her face to face with a dangerous pale creature that craves much more than her blood.
She is kidnapped to an island where the sun is eternally forbidden to shine.
An island uncharted by any map and ruled by the most powerful vampire coven on the planet. She wakes here as a slave, a captive in chains.
Sofia's life takes a thrilling and terrifying turn when she is the one selected out of hundreds of girls to join the harem of Derek Novak, the dark royal Prince.
Despite his addiction to power and obsessive thirst for her blood, Sofia soon realizes that the safest place on the island is within his quarters, and she must do all within her power to win him over if she is to survive even one more night.
Will she succeed? ...or is she destined to the same fate that all other girls have met at the hands of the Novaks?"

Was given this from the author for an honest review.
This isn't like any of the other vampire books I've read. In A Shade Of Vampire, the vampires live on a reclusive island called The Shade. Some of the guards or even the vampires going looking for humans to be their slaves.
Sofia is chosen to be Derek's slave. But with his bloodlusted brother Lucas always threading her life. Sofia becomes more to Derek. Together they will change the fate of the vampires and the royal family.
I really enjoyed Bella 's take on the vampires. That they lived on an island of darkness and weren't afraid to share their lust for blood. And how Derek resisted the urge to drink Sofia's. How she changed him to be more human. And he changed her from seeing him as a coldblooded killer.
For those of you who enjoy vampires that are strong, true to what vampires are then I'd recommend reading this.
All in all, a great read and an awesome start to a series. I look forward to seeing where Sofia and Derek end up.
5/5 stars, Happy Reading, Ashley
