Fanged Princess by Elisabeth Wheatley
And the verdict is...
Good read! And if you love Paranormal stuff, you'll love this.
What I loved most about this book was the the main character (Hadassah) wasn't the one in love. Nope, it was her brother who was in love with a human. And since I used the term human, you should know that Hadassah and her brother Damien are not human - in fact, they're vampires.
I wasn't very enamored with the human paramour Madelyn until the later half of the book. For the first half, she seemed like a clueless girl. But then, it made what Hadasseh did even better (she didn't like the girl very much at first), and it's so obvious that the two of them are in love. All the characters developed well over the novel.
Especially Hadassah. She's really my favourite character ^^ I love how she's so protective of her younger brother. And because she lost her loved one (human) some time back too, she's willing to do anything to protect him from the same hurt.
Coming into the book later are the vampire hunters. Personally, they came off as rather unpleasant. But then again, the whole novel is told from Hadassah's point of view, and why would they be nice to a vampire? I do think, however, that we're going to see a lot more of them in the later novels.
This was a really enjoyable novella. If you're looking for a vampire love story that isn't like the others, you should check this out. This really does focus on a completely different type of love after all.
