***Shelley C – #NerdGirlRed’s  Review***
This is a very difficult book for me to review; it’s one of the first books that I’m completely torn between the good and bad. I was very impressed with the author’s story idea. It’s a completely unique and fascinating take on vampires in a futuristic world where they have usurped humans’ control of the world. The sudden change in the world that the main character, Meryl, wakes up to drove home the plot. I was pretty crazy over the hierarchy, the division of the world, and the conspiracies wound into the story. This story and series has the potential to be an amazing blockbuster, both on the pages and on a premium cable channel.
Now for some of the bad, the author is from Spain and I don’t know if this is the reason behind some of the issues in the book. The story NEEDS an editor. There are multiple levels of editing issues that need attention.

Overall, the story is really good and although there were a few times I wasn’t sure if I could read through the editing problems, I did and I’m glad I finished.
