When Claire Miller turned eighteen all she wanted to do was celebrate her birthday, but after a night on the town with her best friend she awakes to a visitor she never expected. The rulers of her region, a vampire royal family, have chosen her to be turned as their new heir and vampire princess. In a world fueled by the power of blood, Claire quickly discovers the vampire royal family is not what they seem and that she has secrets in her past, she never knew existed.
Savor was awesome!
I will be writing a review, but for now I needed to let you all know just how great this book is!
What a book!
The world that Megan created around Claire is quiet brilliant!
Your 18th birthday is about freedom. Getting your ID, partying with friends, having your blood cataloged, you know the usual. Well in Claire's world, this is the usual. You are required to supply the vampire royal family with blood, in return you receive safety & rule of the government. As quickly as Claire's able to enjoy her future, it's taken away. Her blood is compatible with the King & Queen Vampire, and they want her to become the heir to their throne. Wait, what?? Claire is now faced with the decision to become a vampire or not. (In this part of the book I felt as though she truly struggled with her decision, which is why I connected with her so.) Feeling as though she's destined to do great things, Claire does step up to the plate and becomes a vampire princess.
Following her transformation jealous is a HUGE factor around the palace. One of the families that has been living with the King and Queen for years thought that they'd be next in line for the throne, now with Claire as the heir, their b---not nice---daughter Ava feels the need to make Claire's life hell. (seriously, this chick has issues) Pushing through all this, the King & Queen (or mom and dad) inform everyone in the region that Claire will be placed with a Blood Mate to ensure her safety. Like her own personal security guard, but super strong & fast.
As the story unfolds, all the little loose ends suddenly come together. Creating a story that you NEVER would have seen coming a mile away. Then the book ends...of course...so now I am patiently awaiting book #2. Don't laugh, yes I have patience...sort of.
