Although Paris appears to be your average teenager, behind that guise resides a lethal 130-year-old-vampire. After having served for decades as one of the elite High Guard in an underground vampire society, one fateful decision turns her from trusted bodyguard to criminal.
Paris’ actions end in a death sentence and she finds herself in the human world, on the run from Garrett, an ancient assassin and the one man on the planet who knows her well enough to find her.
As Paris tries to find her place in this new world, she encounters other vampires and humans who revel both in their frailty and their own monstrous natures. She soon learns that the larger issue is that she might not belong in this world after all. Not to mention the fact that the very man sent to destroy her is the only man she has ever loved.

You get a chick named Paris who is a kick-ass vampire, she doesn't crumple and submit to anyone.

The author was able to weave a story that entertains you but also has you asking yourself the important questions: What does life really matter? How are we making the most of it?

Stegall has created a mythos that is more inspired by films like "Underworld" and "Blade" than by any sparkling teen romance.
~ Douglas Brookes
The characters were extremely well written. Many of them got their emotional hooks into me early and it has been quite a while since I have become this attached to new characters.
