Morgan Taylor-Jackson can’t wait for high school to end. In six months she leaves for UCLA and says goodbye to La Jolla, California and her parents’ messy divorce. But when Morgan is bitten by a four-year-old boy, she becomes infected with a mysterious condition. Fever, insomnia, and a new bustline are only the beginning: Morgan morphs from nerd to bombshell.
As far as Van Xander is concerned, all vampires are evil, even the ones who reject human sacrifice and call themselves Puritans. When Helsing Incorporated sends Van to La Jolla to investigate the local coven, Morgan is his prime target.
Pretending to be interested in her, Van asks Morgan out and puts her through a series of tests to determine her killer nature.
Morgan is thrilled to be dating a hot guy like Van and falls for him hard. As Van strings Morgan along, he grows increasingly guilty. Morgan is kind, compassionate, and a gooey romantic. Just as Van’s mind begins to change, evil forces threaten everything. When prom night arrives, there are only two ways out of the ballroom: death or immortality.

Yes, this is as cool as it sounds. I really like the relationships between MCs that start off bad and then gets better. Van’s indifference with killing vampires and leading on Morgan to determine her fate was delicious because as soon as he realized just how sweet and not-monstrous she was, you totally got to see all that guilt and need to make it up to her. And when Morgan finds out?
Cypress takes a beloved legend and turns it into a virus that creates blood addicts. First off, how cool is that? But best of all is the way she combines that with a very old, very traditional corporation of vampire slayers. And who better to be in the spotlight than a direct descendant of the famous Van Helsing? Morgan is a sweet girl with a pretty normal teenage attitude. She’s smart, she’s witty, and she’s got a bit of a sassy thing going on, something that comes up when things get difficult. I enjoyed reading her POV because she was very easy to like, and it was adorable to see her and Van hit it off
even if one of them started out with a lie. The other characters were pretty good, but her mother was a piece of work. I couldn’t stand her at all but what really made this book special was how Morgan thought of Susan in a positive way, despite all their differences. I think that really made Morgan more interesting because of that. The story was totally cool, the plot was a bit obvious but the way it got revealed was really interesting, and I can totally see myself fighting for the next installment. If you like vampires and young love and high school drama, you’ll like this.
