It's hell being a teenager. 

Larna Collins has never understood why her dad skipped out on her and her mother when she was twelve years old. Until then, he was a devoted and loving father. 

But six years later, during a renovation of her childhood home, she unearths her father's journal from under a dusty floorboard. According to his final entry before he left, he had recently visited a small parish in England. 

The entries draw her to this seemingly quaint village, which Larna discovers isn't as charming as its blood-craving inhabitants want her to believe, and she learns that she isn't the only one trying to track her father down. 

Could this explain her father's disappearance? Or was placing her in the center of danger her dad's master plan all along?

Review: Its always fun to pick up another vampire story and see how another author has used the world we so dearly love to tell a tale of paranormal glory. The story was entertaining, but to tell you the truth, I found it a little contrived. Everything felt so easy and laid out for the main character. And all though I enjoyed the story very much, I wish there would have been more conflict and hardship. Less telling and more showing.

The book got three starts from me for an interesting plot line and worthy characters.

Received an advance reader copy in exchange for a fair review.
