Vampire Princess, The Kingdom of night book 1 by Cameron Drake is a new series by a new author.
Princess Sasha has been on the run since she was a small child. She is half human, half vampire. She is the daughter of the King; the King has been taken prisoner by the new leaders who don't like the rules he makes so to protect the princess his two most trusted advisors spirited the young princess away to keep her safe until she can return safely home and her father can resume his leadership, with Sasha by his side.
In a new town Sasha has to act like a normal teenager , go to school under a fake name and act 100 % human but its hard for Sasha to do this because she really isn’t all human. Its here she makes her first friend named Dylan who is the school’s star football player. But thing is, Sasha wants to drink his blood and her powers are heightened when around him so that’s when her guardians want her out of town but she refuses to leave but is this her downfall? There are other twists and turns in this new series by Ms. Drake that kept me reading. The story ends in a cliffhanger with a set up for book 2. I did like this YA paranormal read that had me wanting to see Sasha/Sophie achieve some happiness but since this is a new start, that is some time off .. Hopefully in book 2, some answers like who exactly is after her, will she get to find out why she is being sought after and what they want to do with her—hopefully these answers will be coming and she will get some happiness in the next book.
My rating: 4.0 stars ****
