Goodreads Summary:
By day, Risika sleeps in shaded room in Concord, Massachusetts. By night, she hunts the streets of New York City. She is used to being alone.
But someone is following Risika. He has left her a black rose, the same sort of rose that sealed her fate three hundred years ago. Three hundred years ago Risika had a family- a brother and a father who loved her. Three hundred years ago she was human.
Now she was a vampire, a powerful one. And her past has come back to torment her

DeLibrarie (Nichole) Review:
If you're a fan of vampires, then you should really give this book a read. I read this when I was younger and I loved it. It's really well written and gives you a good look into what it might be like to become a vampire. You get to know Risika and by following her you see the torment and difficulties that come with being a vampire. Her character is so strong and powerful that it's fun to follow her and to see how she overcomes things. It's also interesting to see things from a female vampire's point of view rather than the usual male vampire's point of view or female human with a vampire boyfriend's point of view. It's a fast read and the writing is easy and smooth yet intelligent. This dark book will leave you thinking about vampires in a completely different way.

Amelia has been my idol since I started reading years ago! Do you know how young she was when she wrote this book? I think it was 13 or 14... Love this book so much. All of her books are great.

Oh I know! She is absolutely brilliant! I just double checked and she got this book published on her 14th birthday. It's incredible! I totally wanted to be her when I was younger.
