Purchase: Barnes & Noble | Amazon

My Review
I received a free copy of this novel in exchange for my honest review.  Emylene Stipe, is considered a Goth Princess by the Gothic community.  Her parents Theo and Vandy run a very profitable Goth nightclub where they are considered royalty.  On a quest, parcially to find herself, and to rebel, Emylene moves into an apartment of her own, this is when her life gets turned upside down. She meets a young girl with no name with huge secrets that could destroy Emylene’s world.

This isn’t a sunshine and roses romantic vampire story.  Those are pretty predictable and I was really pleased to see something fresh and unique.  This was an intriguing novel that held me captive for hours on end.  Emylene is a really gutsy main character; she has bravery beyond her years.  This was an amazing novel, rich in history that keeps you guessing until the very end.  This is a must read and one of my favorites for this year.
