My husband bought me this series of books a couple of weeks ago and I've been saving it for an "emergency". Yesterday, sitting at the hospital in the emergency room, was that "emergency". I don't deal well with waiting or being worried. So, I started the first book (shown here) and let me tell you....it's really, really good so far. I got through the first four chapters with the snap of my fingers. So, if you like fantasy and vampires, give this series a try!
