In fact, Solange is the first, and only, female vampire ever born in history.
Solange, being the novelty that she is, is widely assumed to be said vampire. But Solange wants nothing to do with that. She already has to cope with seven overprotective older brothers. Does she have to deal with vampires who want to kill her because people think she wants to overthrow the current vampire queen too?
Who can edit:
What sets this novel apart from other vampire YA of its ilk are the awesome female characters and the great depictions of relationships. I adored the friendship between Solange and her human best friend, Lucy. The contrast between them was great: Solange, daughter of an ancient vampire bloodline and whose mother is a fearsome martial artist that puts those skills to work regularly, who hates blood and Lucy, daughter of peace-loving vegan hippies, who has a violent streak. Solange is very much suffocated by her overprotective family — something that Lucy strives to mitigate as much as possible.
Their concern is not without reason, of course, since I imagine most families would be paranoid if people kept trying to kidnap their only daughter so she could bear a score of vampire babies. I will never stop laughing about how she simply looked him up in the phonebook, called him up, and then proceeded to blackmail him. And then later used the idea of crank calling Kieran to cheer up Nicholas.
I know part of that can be chalked up to space but there are two other major types of vampires in addition to the natural-born and standard made ones. I especially think readers who like snappy dialogue and solid depictions of female friendship and family relationships will like this one a lot.

I admit to the same ennui with vampires and even YA books. And yet, here I am, seduced entranced by another thoughtful and detailed DA review. I think the ebook is out in the UK not sure if its available in the US. But its under a different title here- My Love Lies Bleeding.
Hearts At Stake
Has : Thanks for mentioning the UK title. Silvia : When you find that book, let me know. Even with all the vampire books out there this one has a quality that keeps you into it; I still liked it. The characters are all adorable and so funny. Thanks :. Hi, im doing my ISU on this book, but am having trouble with the thesis statement.
My Love Lies Bleeding
Two unlikely alliances are formed in a race to save Solange's eternal life-Lucy and Solange's brother Nicholas, and Solange and Kieran Black-in a dual romance that is guaranteed to jump start any romance-lover's heart. Even fans of the genre who've seen it all will find a fresh read with kick-butt characters and family dynamics that ring true for all brothers and sisters-vampire or otherwise.
