Madison Amber Rose is just a normal seventeen year old high school girl. She is left with her brother Aiden an his girlfriend Abigail, her best friend when there parents leave the state for an emergency! But everything changes when she meets Ethan a hot guy seeks her on the beach, she is mesmerised by him. But when she is at a beach party and a guy puts a fun to her head, her 'dark haired saviour' saves her life and mysteriously disappears, leaving her in awe and shock! Connor, the dark haired saviour reaches her and an overnight trip to California changes her life forever...

Madison has died before, and this affects her life completely. She has the Mark of Pandora, which she and two other people have and she has been foretold that she is the one to open the Box of Pandora which hold more that history tells us. She also has a gift at creating art based on her thoughts and feelings and she uses this to tell her of her future and what she sees. Madison has this dream that repeats night after night that can only be shown as her future self becoming a Vampire warrior. As the novel develops, the more her dreams become the truth and future, her future.

Connor is more than just a guy that saves Madison's life, he is a vampire and one that changes Madison's life forever and eternally. Connor is on a mission to sought to kill Madison and why... The Translucent Man becomes the terror for Connor and he doesn't get scared often, there is a real threat and he will protect, guide and care for Madison that he has never done before. His arrogance and darkness makes him the perfect guy for Madison, I mean that's what I think. It has always got to be the persona of a bad boy to make the novel so much more interesting and intense! :D

This was a free book that I got off the Kindle Store, and it was a very good read. Its a simple, YA novel, with the typical aspects of a vampire (my favourite kind) with need for romance. The author, Rashaad Bell, I have never heard of, but he proved himself pretty good in the beginning of his series. I would recommend this to those who enjoy a simple, straight-forward, dark romance read. I throughly enjoyed it!


  1. This cover looks so cool...except for the heart at the bottom, which is kinda creepy. Haha, I agree with you about the bad boys! ;D Although there have actually been a couple of sweeties who were good from the first. Ooh, a freebie! I have to say, it looks like a basic paranormal read, but who knows, I might check it out. Thanks for sharing, Em! :)

    1. Haha! :) You can't beat a bit of Damon or any other bad boys for that matter. Though I do agree with you with some of the bad boys ;D Yeah, on Kindle Store there are so many paranormal reads that the first book are usually free in the series. They aren't well known, but they are really good reads if you want something, quick, simple yet have all the aspects of a YA/paranormal novel. You should definitely check it out... Your Welcome, all part of the world of blogging! :)

  2. I really enjoyed this story, I'm not an English major so the grammatical errors really didn't bother me. I would recommend this book it is a fun read. And just like another reader said this is probably not for someone younger then 16.
