My rating: 5 of 5 stars
OMG. This book is SO AWESOME. I loved this story so much that 5 stars doesn't seem to be enough. :)
Pearl is a young vampire who enjoys her vampiric life. A lot. She has a beautiful boyfriend called Jadrien, and is very loyal to her Family. However, the night a unicorn stakes her, everything she was starts to change. She can walk in daylight, she has a reflection, and starts appreciating all the wonders that come with daytime.
Her Family also see this as an awesome opportunity and send her off to high school. Here, she's to (somehow) round up enough humans to be offered as food to the king when he visits for the Fealty Ceremony. Sounds easy enough, except she soon starts seeing humans as friends. And the way her Family is--even if it was exactly how she used to be--doesn't appeal to her anymore.
So what's a daywalking, reflection-casting, super fabulous vampire with a conscience to do? Well, you'll have to read the book to find out. And you won't regret it!
At first glance, this book seems to be all about poking fun at the vampire genre, but it ends up being so much more. It's clever and interesting. It's filled with awesome characters. I especially liked Pearl and really enjoyed her journey from vampire snob to someone who cares about others.
The story is intriguing, the worldbuilding excellent, and the last half is intense! It's also super cute--just like the cover--and fantastic! And most importantly, it was SO MUCH FUN.
I seriously enjoyed the hell out of this book!
