He paints a vibrant story where every movement and phrase seems heavy with significance. But as with his films, reality sometimes loses out to arty, expansive style, making for a surreal world that's prettier and more immersive than it is believable.

Synopsis

With over 5 million copies sold in the series, A Shade of Vampire will transport fans of TwilightThe Mortal Instruments and The Vampire Diaries to a world unlike any other...  
On the evening of Sofia Claremont's seventeenth birthday, she is sucked into a nightmare from which she cannot wake. A quiet evening walk along a beach brings her face to face with a dangerous pale creature that craves much more than her blood.

She is kidnapped to The Shade, an enchanted island where the sun is eternally forbidden to shine. An island uncharted by any map and ruled by the most powerful vampire coven on the planet. She wakes here as a slave, a captive in chains.

Sofia's life takes a thrilling and terrifying turn when she is selected out of hundreds of girls to take up residence in the tree-top harem of Derek Novak, the dark royal prince.

Despite his addiction to power and obsessive thirst for her blood, Sofia soon realizes that the safest place on the island is within his quarters, and she must do all within her power to win him over if she is to survive even one more night.

Will she succeed? Or is she destined to the same fate that all other girls have met at the hands of the Novaks?

I guess my life as a writer started when I was five; I'd sit under the kitchen table with my box of multi-colored wax crayons (I miss those) and create picture books. Creative writing was always my favorite subject and I used any free time I had to sit down with a notepad. Not much has changed, except that now I have developed vampirish habits: my writing "day" typically starts at 1am. I'm an avid reader, a big fan of cookie ice cream and I'm often travelling. When working I have to disconnect the internet for fear of being endlessly distracted by websites such as www.icanhas.cheezburger.com. This is my website: www.bellaforrest.net And don't forget to come say hello on Facebook: www.facebook.com/AShadeOfVampire

Why is it that the girl who thinks that she is not pretty turns out to be THE most beautiful one? This book is no different, and vampires, male and females alike, drool over Sofia. Nothing new in this story.
