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?

My Review:

*A copy of this book was provided by the author in exchange for an honest review*

I absolutely loved this book. I haven't read a vampire romance book in a while, so this was definitely refreshing to read. I love how Bella Forrest is able to come up with a whole new different concept to your typical vampire romance story. 

From the very beginning I was captivated by the whole aspect of the story, it starts of with Sophia, a seventeen year old girl that longs to have her best friend, Ben, see her as more than a friend. She has struggled by seeing him with other girls and doesn't know what to do anymore. One night she decides to a stroll by the beach, when suddenly a handsome stranger appears and kidnaps her. When she wakes up she is scared to find herself chained and helpless. Everything is going wrong with her and things start to get a lot worse when the stranger that kidnaps her is non other than a vampire, that has taken a liking in her and her blood. 

When she is selected to be part of Derek's personal slaves, she is shocked to discover that he is a legendary vampire prince that is respected among his kind. Confused and desperate to find a way to escape, Sophia embarks in a new adventure where she'll have to learn how to survive and most of all learn how to not fall in love with the very prince that can't let her go. In this new world, Bella Forrest, describes how Sophia is trapped between a vampire that wants to have her for her blood to one that desperately wants her to love him back. 

I really enjoyed the flow of the story, it has a great plot that is impossible to let go of the book, because you just want to know what happens next. It is very well-written and it all ties together in the end. I would have liked to see more scenes between Derek and Sophia though, but overall it was a great story. I'm really looking forward to reading the rest of the series. I recommend everyone to give it a try, you will not regret it. 

My Rating: 4.5/5
