When Claire Miller turned eighteen all she wanted to do was celebrate her birthday, but after a night on the town with her best friend she awakes to a visitor she never expected. The rulers of her region, a vampire royal family, have chosen her to be turned as their new heir and vampire princess. Claire quickly discovers the royal family is not what they seem and that she has secrets in her past, she never knew existed.

Claire just turned eighteen so her mom is taking her down to the blood bank to be tested as a donor. In Claire's world, the vampire royals rule along with humans and humans donate blood to help feed vampires. They even learn all about vampire politics in school. The vampire King and Queen long ago wanted humans and vampires to be able to live in peace so they set up the donor system. Some humans are against this and protest but Claire's mom is a vampire activist and believes in working together for peace. The next day vampire royals show up at Claire's house claiming her blood is pure and special which has not happened in a hundred years. They would love for her to join their family and be their princess.

Her mom supports vampires and is so excited that this opportunity has been given to her daughter. Claire is sad to give up her life but the King and Queen will treat her well and she will be able to make a difference and one day be Queen. Claire is learning to love life at the palace as a princess and has even become close with Dmitry another vampire that lives at the palace. Except she needs to stick with tradition and take a blood mate thus bringing in a very interesting love triangle with revealed secrets and a twist ending. I found all the characters intriguing and enjoyable. In the beginning I felt some details were cut short but as the story progresses I became very engrossed and the details of the ceremonies were unique. Also I became emotionally confused at the end because I absolutely loved Dmitry but at the end the blood mate really grew on me! Opens up so much more to happen.

"A representative for the vampire royal family is here!" She tried to hold back a squeal of elation and only half succeeded.
"What? Why? What did I do?"
Rating: 4/5 Fangs!
