Amazon Product Description:
It was a flash in the moonlight, a blur of motion like I’d never witnessed before. No human had the capacity to move like that. When I found myself face-to-face with him there in the meadow, I knew without a doubt that the journal was authentic. I knew that my grandfather hadn’t been crazy at all. Because a foot away from me stood a vampire. Sarah Brightman reads her grandfather's journal in stunned disbelief. What was once her grandfather's responsibility has passed to her father and now to her. She has become the Warden. Her life will never be the same.

My thoughts:
This was a fast read.  It is mysterious and intriguing.  I really enjoyed the characters!  

Michael is so interesting!  What is really going on?  Who is/was Michael and what is he to be to Sarah?  Alex is great!  What is his story for real?  How does he know Michael?  Where does this budding friendship between he and Sarah go?  Speaking of Sarah... she is a fantastic character.  Tough and determined.  I can't wait to find out what she does with her new job as The Vampire's Warden.  I get the impression that her and Michael will be changing the way things have been for the last hundred years.  

The ending is shocking!  Total cliffhanger!!! CAN'T wait for book 2!  
I will be checking out the final stop on the blog tour where we will be getting a sneak peek at book 2.

I enjoyed the story, but feel like it could have been fleshed out in places.  I finished with questions - loads of questions.  Some of those questions I am sure are left unanswered so that the reader is looking for the next book in the series, but I felt that there were some holes.   

All in all though a really entertaining read!  Be sure to check it out!
