Seventeen-year-old Kia barely survived her parents’ divorce several years ago. Now her mom is in the hospital battling cancer and Kia is stuck with her workaholic father, leaving her searching for an escape from the everyday horrors of her life.
She finds this escape with a group of people acting out a dark fantasy. These “vampires” spend all night in dark clubs, wearing gothic outfits, and even baring fake fangs. But when Kia meets Damon, she begins to wonder if maybe a true vampire exists among them, one who could be the answer to all of her problems.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Disappointed I really didn't like this book, I saw a post and thought I would give it a try. I found it really slow to start, its about a young girl named Kia who has lots of depressing things going on.. This book is not about vampires but its good at leading you down that path. Its more a book about life lessons, and serious teen issuses. Good for anyone looking for that, I was not and did not enjoy the book.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Disturbing, Deceiving, Delightful Kia is just a young girl looking for something more to live for; her father is distant, her mother is dying, and her friends just don't understand. When she starts working at a emo-looking clothing store, she meets a friend who gets her into all the best vampire clubs. At her first clubbing experience, she makes her friends--one gay and one shy--tag along, but it's not their scene. However, Kia is completley facintated by the entire place; the dark, sexy outfits--complete with shiny white fangs--, the interesting people, and the incredibly hott DJ. Mesmerized by his pale features, his sexy voice and his mysterious nature, Kia follows him into a world that she never should have been exposed to. I loved this book from the first page to the last. Every girl can relate to Kia in some small way; and every girl can imagine Dameon, the DJ, and how amazing it would be to be lost in him. A must read for vampire fans!
