A Shade of Vampire, Book 1 Audible Audiobook – Unabridged
With over seven million copies sold in the series and more than 169,650 worldwide five-star reviews, A Shade of Vampire will transport fans of Twilight, The Mortal Instruments, and The Vampire Diaries to a world unlike any other....
On the evening of Sofia Claremont's 17th birthday, she is sucked into a nightmare from which she cannot wake. A quiet evening walk along a beach brings her face to face with a dangerous pale creature that craves much more than her blood.
She is kidnapped to The Shade, an enchanted island where the sun is eternally forbidden to shine - an island uncharted by any map and ruled by the most powerful vampire coven on the planet. She wakes here as a slave, a captive in chains.
Sofia's life takes a thrilling and terrifying turn when she is selected out of hundreds of girls to take up residence in the tree-top harem of Derek Novak, the dark royal prince.
Despite his addiction to power and obsessive thirst for her blood, Sofia soon realizes that the safest place on the island is within his quarters, and she must do all within her power to win him over if she is to survive even one more night.
Will she succeed? Or is she destined to the same fate that all other girls have met at the hands of the Novaks?

Sofia is 17, and has been raised by family friends, on her birthday she is kidnapped by vampires! In this first book Sofia meets the shades King, Derek! Can Sofia gain his trust, can she help him over come his darkness within?
This first instalment had me sitting on the edge of my seat, and had my emotions on a roller coaster ride. If you loved reading the twilight series then you will fall head over heals with this series. Happy reading.
We have Lucas the brother to the King..and the usual coward,bully personality..he wants what Derik has...and will do what ever he can to get it! Vivienne the Kings sister..knows somethings going on between the brothers and Sofia and it will end in bloodshed..but who's?
It was going cheap when I picked it up, so no reason not to give it a chance. You won’t be disappointed.

I can't really say mcuh more about it, as I wouldn't want to give anything away, but it's a typical vampire human love story in that they fall in love and there's the whole thing about right and wrong. The vampire isn't 'vegetarian' and he is a prince in his little kingdom. The girl is captured and turns prince vampire's eye and she is just a plain Jane so no one really understands why (especially the other vampires).
It's just an easy read really with a few twists here and there. I wouldn't say it's an overly dark story (I can read it at bedtime lol) and it's just nice. That's all I can say about it really. I hope you enjoy reading.
I'm so glad I did! You see, I'm really not averse to a lack of adult steam, because this time there was enough chemistry and enough presence about the leading guy. I'm definitely going to read more.. But holy cow Bella.. 55 books in this series?!! Who does that?! I'm in awe and horror...
