Series Blood Coven 1

Technically Sunshine can't get killed-because she's immortal. Well, not quite yet. Due to the worst case of mistaken identity with her dark-side-loving twin sister at a Goth club called Club Fang, Magnus, a vampire hottie, went for Sunshine's innocent neck. Now if she doesn't reverse it in time, Magnus will be her blood mate forever and she's doomed to be a blood-gulping, pasty, daylight-hating vampire. That would seriously bite.

And now, after the unfortunate slaying of the vampire leader, Sunshine, her sister Rayne, and Magnus must find the one thing that can solve her problem: the Holy Grail. They wish it were a joke but it's not. It's absolutely necessary that Sunshine gets out of this in time, because somehow she scored the hottest prom date in her school, the mouth-watering Jake Wilder. So she just can't be a vampire for the prom-let alone the rest of eternity.

I picked this book up because it was on sale

What I liked the Most? Sunshine & Rayne – I love this!!

What I liked the Least? Really – not anyone can tell them apart – not even their mom – really?

Review: Sunshine, sweet & innocent, identical twin to Rayne, dark & gothic, goes to the teen hangout “Club Fang”, where Sunny is mistaken for Rayne. Unfortunately for the vampire Magnus (assigned to Rayne as her blood mate) he bites the wrong twin and turns Sunny into a vampire. What follows is a funny romp as Sunshine tries to become human again.

This was an easy, fast read, with some very interesting characters and wonderful world building – a three month training, testing and a waiting list to get a vampire mate.

Recommended to: Anyone who wants a quick funny read

Best Quote: "I need to stop being a bitch? For Magnus's sake?" I stare at her, unbelieving. "Uh, hello? He's the guy who walked up and bit me for absolutely no reason whatsoever."
