There is a balance in life most know nothing about. Some are put here to simply exist, while others have been placed here to ensure life. Healers, such as Aldo Lawson understand the power of their gift, although at times, it seems more a curse. Upon meeting a handsome young healer named Thomas, Aldo's life heads into a tailspin. With his arrival, Aldo's aunt, the woman who raised her, is forced to share a hard and scary truth--vampires exist. And not only do they exist, but they thirst for healer blood.

Despite this new and frightening information, Aldo longs for a normal senior year, and she's determined to have it. So close to achieving her goal, her world is turned upside down when her aunt is murdered and Thomas disappears. Riddled with questions, she sets out to find him.
Submerged in a world filled with sex and danger, Aldo hopes to find the vampires that will lead her to Thomas. When they find her first, she is forced to piece together truths, deal with her pain, and finds that not everything is what it seems.

I just finished this book and I'm left more than a little shaken and disoriented. It certainly pulled me in and kept me reading with its intensity and gripping pace, but at times the story had so much Inception-like convolution, I felt lost. But, where in most books, that would be a big negative, it kind of worked in this one since our heroine, Aldo, whose point of view we read, also was disoriented and confused for much of the book. The plot was superb - original, never once boring with so many twists that I lost track of how many times I said "wow - I didn't see that one coming." Although the romance aspect is what hooked me from the get-go, I actually felt like that was one of the weaker points of the novel as a whole. In the end, it felt incestuous and creepy to me (even though I'm almost positive that was not the author's intent). Without spoiling, I will just say this - I certainly know whose "team" I'm on and I really, really hope book two gives us more resolution when it comes to him. Despite being a bit more tortuous than I would have liked, I still thoroughly enjoyed this book and would recommend it to anyone looking for a fresh take on the paranormal/vampire world.
