I Loved the tragic aspect of the book, no, not in a sad way. But how Alexia became a vampire, and what she had to face afterwards was pretty much brutal. I really felt for her from the moment she woke up as a vampire. She had such a short time to grieve what she's lost before she's given a death sentence. Lucky her, she's special. The unlucky part is that she has to learn the hard way.
Speaking of unlucky characters: Meet Lucas. Hot and strong and protective. Did I miss anything? He also had to loose a lot in the beginning. He was a very bitter character in the beginning, his mood softened a little as he got to know Alexia, and together they had great-sarcastic sense of humor, I really enjoyed the interaction between these two. Apart from the great dynamics between the main characters, was all the action. No dull moments. Always on the go and running for their lives.
I was really intrigued by the prophecy in the book. The fact that Alexia is was meant to basically extinguish vampires was a bit funny yet exiting and interesting. Especially if we consider that Alexia feels really bad for stealing someones car... not exactly what I had in mind for a main character with a huge destiny. Alexia was original in this aspect. She's not your typical hero, she's quirky, awkward and she can't seem to shut up x) She's in the stage of trying to find out who she is as a vampire and who she is to the vampire race. By the end she became stronger and braver. I really enjoyed the ending and the shocking aspects of it. Looking forward to the sequel :D!
