This book is about Zoe; a girl whose mother is dying of cancer. She meets the mysterious and strangely gentlemanly Simon; who also suffered the loss of his mother....several hundred years ago. Amid the struggles that she faces day to day, she finds herself falling for Simon....but Simon's evil brother, who is also a vampire, has murder on his mind. Will they be able to stop him before he strikes again?

I wasn't sure how much I would enjoy this book. But when I found it in a little used book shop, I had to buy it. I am very glad I did! The writing is beautiful and  lyrical. I loved the rawness of Zoe and Simon's emotions, and how the author wasn't afraid to explore every aspect of their thoughts. 

This story wasn't cliché or stereotypical at all. The romantic aspect of it was touching and beautiful, and the author made it appear as if the characters' emotions were very, very real and true.

A great read, with a beautiful, bittersweet ending! This read tugs on the heart-strings and pulls you in from the first page!

I recommend this novel to both teen and adult readers looking for an emotional, paranormal read.
