It is a verse-ornated story
About love, betrayal, wrath,
Royal vampires' bliss and glory
Bringing them straight to their death.

Luella, fierce, strong vampire,
Falls for a pretty human catch
Sent on her fiancé's desire
To celebrate they are engaged.

This unexpected turnabout
Is doomed to come to a dead end:
Her human sweetheart's dead to shroud;
Her fiancé's avenged for that;

And she is punished for blood treason,
Banished into a mortal child,
Whose human body is a prison
For all her powers to bind.

Her memories obliterated,
She is to find her love at last
Who proves to be too much related
To the misfortunes from her past.

What I thought:

I have to admit I had some pretty big misconceptions on poetry style writing.  While there may be some out there that is written with some double meaning and you have to dissect and try to figure out what every line really means to get the story, this isn't like it.

This was hard to get the hang of at first, as I haven't read anything in verse before, but after I got into it, it flowed amazingly well.  It is a well written tale of vampires, falling in love, and rediscovering the past, written in such a way that really makes it stand out and not blend in with other books I have read.  It had an unique story to it, at least, to me, it was unique.

There was a scene in here, I don't know if it was on purpose or not by the author, when Luella wakes up to find her love interest in her room (Twilight reference?) and Luella being freaked out by it thinking he just may be stalkerish.... loved it!  Very funny!

I'd recommend it to anyone who likes paranormal romance and is looking for something different.  I was given this, by the author, for review.

I gave it 5 stars!
