*this was gifted by author for review*
When one human stands before an army of impossible obstacles, the likelihood of overcoming them in this coming-of-age modern fairytale may result in war between light and darkness.
Abandoned as an infant in Prague, naive and strong-willed Charlotte Ruzikova was raised by one of the last Vampires left alive. As a human, she knows no other home than the one nestled deep in the woods of Eastern Europe, where Witches drew spells of enchantment, Phasers threw tea parties, and Elves are the closest in kin. Charlotte has lived her life in the dark with her Guardian, content to having him to herself and reveling in his attention, until she's realizes she wants more...
Resident medical doctor and Vampire, Valek Ruzik fears the day his ward would come of age and blossom into a fine woman, and he is forced to confront his own motives as time is of the essence once his past catches up to him, and their lives become endangered...
As genocide and war threatens their secret society, the dictator in power is ready to wipe out Valek's race, but Charlotte will not allow that to happen. Fighting for the only one she's ever loved and truly believed in, she will do whatever it takes to save their love...before the sun comes up and light takes over.

This book is 258 pages of awesome. It had the perfect amount of humor, plot, and romance.

I really liked Charlotte. Of course in the beginning I thought her relationship with Valek was super creepy. First he was a father figure then he was like a brother then all of the sudden she was in love with him. Their relationship seemed a little rushed but they were super adorable together. That was probably my favorite part. Valek was kinda creepy. He was always thinking about Charlotte. Sometimes it was cute sometimes it was weird. I loved how he called her Lottie. They are seriously absolutely adorable. Aiden was incredibly annoying. He loved Charlotte but he was really mean to her. All he wanted was power. I'm kinda glad something bad happened to him.

The plot was very fast paced. I've never read a vampire book like this. Something was always happening. It was very difficult to put down. It ended like a stand alone but I know there is a sequel so I'm excited to see what happens next. Overall I really liked this book. I would recommend if you like vampire books. 4/5 stars
