About the Author: Raised in country Victoria, Rebeka started her writing career working for the local newspaper as a teenager. While she decided not to pursue this as a career, she has always enjoyed writing and being creative With so many varied interests and eclectic taste in most things, Rebeka enjoys incorporating all of them in her writing. She particularly enjoys writing about vampires. Rebeka seeks to define and explain vampires in a way not done before. This was achieved with her debut title “Vampires Revealed”. Following titles revolve around exploring the world and characters created in her first release. She currently lives in Melbourne with her “demented” but lovable cat, dividing her time between writing and managing a small boutique entertainment agency.

My Review: I was pleasantly surprised with this book. This is the first book I read from this young author and instead of finding just another vampire book, I found a whole description of an interesting world, that captivates the attention of the reader from the beginning. The plot is simple: a family is rescued in the middle of St. Bartholomew's Massacre (Paris 1572) by a vampire. Nicole, the younger daughter of the family was five years old at that time and she develops an admiration by their savior, Lady Harrington, without the prejudice that their two older brothers and her father and mother shows towards the vampire. Their relationship starts to grow stronger with the passage of the years. But the vampire world is not only made of good ones, playing the role of heroes, but there are also the bad ones, from an extremist faction that does not accept interaction between vampires and humans. An Nicole is drawn into the middle of this war, with consequences that will change her life forever.

This book was written by Ms. Rebeka Harrington and released on June 2012.  I recommend this book for the permanent library of those readers that enjoy a very well written soft fantasy. Very entertaining reading, it took me around 6 hours to read the whole book.

The author was kind enough to provide me a book for reviewing in electronic format. Thank you Rebeka for the opportunity you gave me to review this wonderful book!
