April M. Reign is the bestselling author of HASH, The Mancini Saga, The Dhellia Series, The Disciples of the Damned Series and The Turning Series.

Reign and Arellano wrote a great story- the old fashioned blood thirsty vampire story. Intermixed with that is the story of how 2 children raised in seclusion found their way into and part of this world. This is the story of their turning- how they anticipated it, how they endured it and how it changed their personalities and shaped their futures.

As to any errors, I didn't notice. But then again I was reading for story not editing. I am also a fan of another vampire and angel story writer whose characters not only have their own language, they have a totally different spelling dictionary than Webster ever intended. Please folks, if you are going to read indie writers, then remember that to keep their books affordable, there isn't a staff of 20 editors going over every word. Speeling (pun intended) errors happen. Their editors do a great job so do give them a break.

The story is good, the characters are intriguing and you will want to read books 2 and 3. Apollo's character will draw you in, the Sambras will repulse you or maybe like any outcast you will pity their fate, and you will wonder about Sophie.
