Shadow Embrace

Embraced by the Shadows by Mayra Calvani

* Received for review

First of all a definite 5 out of 5 tiara wearing bats for this little story.

Do you ever feel a presence watching you from behind, following you and protecting you.  Could it be that you have a Guardian Angel?  No that’s just your vampire stalker.  This book draws you in and then keeps giving you reasons to read more and more.
I like that the mortal who bonds with a vampire starts to gain little traits that allude to it (i.e. eating nearly raw steaks, unstoppable urge to watch the bloodiest movies and shows to see the gore, and licking raw liver leavings.)
It is interesting how things lead into each other in this book.   It ties everything together really nicely even with a couple of sub plots all going on at the same time.  Oh and the mystery with her mom’s death is done very well, I didn’t even have a clue until the reveal.
I want the clubs and restaurants from that world to exist. If Fangs was located around here I would definitely be a regular.  And that serpent necklace would so have to be mine it sounds so pretty.

This is a wonderful read that will keep you wondering and really draw you into the story.  I liked the unique view of vampire society.
