    One thought on “A Shade of Vampire”

    1. I was reading other reviews and many people loved this book , so I started wondering if something's wrong with me . Sofia is kidnapped by vampires and she forced to be a part of Derek's harem.Derek is the vampire prince who woke up after 400 years .She hates being there and she tries to escape but she didnt managed to.Why I didn't enjoy it.Derek fell instantly in love with her .When he woke up he was supposed to drink her blood but he didnt want to because he was afraid that he would hurt her. I [...]

    2. I went into this book like a person between jobs, bored of their last venture and not yet ready to dive into anything too serious. I knew exactly what I was getting myself into and my expectations were appropriately set for mindless entertainment. I know this may seem like a strange thing for some people and I'm sure many would wonder why I decided to read a book I was sure to dislike. The simple explanation would lie somewhere between "Because I felt like it" and "Because I paid for it." But f [...]

    3. This book has a lot of mixed reviews from being compared to Twilight to people saying it's amazing.So I was like;Big mistake there!Yeah, I was an idiot for wasting time and money on this. Another fucking insta-love, and believe me when I say it's an annoying one, because I can stand certain amount of insta-cheesy-love. But this was just absurd, throw that in a bowl, add some poor writing, and you are up for a very shitty novel.Some examples:"I caught myself before I could turn myself into my own [...]

    4. WHAT THE?WHAT THE HECK?!WHAT THE HECK JUST HAPPENED?!!!!Errmm, i think it's illegal to end a book like that. You juts can't do that, OK?Sophia is kidnapped at her 17th birthday. She's taken captive by a vampire to an island where the sun never shines. The island is called The Shade. Sofia is selected out of hundreds of girls to join the harem of Derek Novak, the dark royal Prince. Sofia soon realises that if she's to survive she must gain Derek's affection. But will she? And what will happen if [...]

    5. MY BLOG: Melissa Martin's Reading ListI have been wanting to start reading this series for some time and damn it, I decided today was the day. I love Sofia and Derek together! I really liked this book and I look forward to the rest of them! Yay! Sofia is living with the Hudson family. They were friends with her mother, Camilla, and her father. But, Sofia's mom was a little whackadoo there for a bit and got put away and then her father just dumped her on this family. I really wonder though if som [...]

    6. Find all of my reviews at: 52bookminimum/My friend Sh3lly was reading this series awhile back and her updates were all shades of Twilight. . . . Don’t judge. Anyway, I figured what the hell. She was even nice enough to attempt to lend me a copy but there was a glitch in the system somewhere because I suck at technology the universe is out to get me. Lucky for me the porny librarian is also versed in all things vampire and my turn came up at exactly the right time for mindless fluff – a holid [...]

    7. This is my vampire Ke$ha song. Are you a fan of Twilight?Are you a fan of The Vampire Diaries?Are you a fan of the My Blood Approves series?You're prolly gonna like this, then. Eternal 18 year old vamp falls for "regular" 17 year old human who isn't really all that regular after all. Bad guys come between them, best friend (not a werewolf in this instance, sorry Jacob fans) forms the third point of the love triangle It's a recipe proven for success. For a certain crowd. Okay, I admit it. I'm TOT [...]

    8. I waited so long to read A Shade of Vampire and it was worth the wait. It was short but the pages were packed with so much. Bella paints such a vivid picture of the island of The Shade that serves as a refuge for a coven of vampires, led by their prince, Derek Novak. Derek's very evil brother, Lucas, kidnaps Sofia and brings her to The Shade for Derek's harem but secretly wants Sofia for himself. This book is packed with just the right combination of evil and romance. You can't help but fall for [...]

    9. DNF at 81%It's my first DNF of the New Year. I guess I had higher expectations, but this was too cliche for my tastes. Just not the book for me.

    10. Before I begin, I feel the need to quantify my five-stars here. You know how people will say something is "so bad it's good"? I feel that term somewhat applies here, though more in a sense "It's a great read, if you like that sort of thing". As such, A Shade of Vampire is a "great read" if you like swooning human heroines and smoldering love-interests with fangs. For those who aren't fans of those tired cliches, know you're not getting a new experience here. Otherwise - for those who partake in [...]

    11. In case you’re wondering, A Shade of Vampire is not just another average vampire book. It’s a quick, captivating read about a 17 year old teenager called Sofia Claremont, who gets captured to an island called The Shade. The island is controlled by vampires who capture humans as slaves and food to do their bidding, and there’s no escape. Sofia is one of several teenage girls who have been caught to serve Derek, a revered and powerful vampire who has just awoken. Despite the terrifying circu [...]

    12. OMG!!!! This book is brilliant! I am in love with vampires, hmm after Edward Cullen, Salvatore Brothers :) They ruined me for good!This book had everything and I was gripped from the start to the end. The moment Sofia meet Derek, am gone! Intense connection they had :) *swoons*N Derek is such a swoon-worthy vampire.Can't wait for more for these two! If you loved Twilight, grab this book. It is fab!Thumbs up!*This book was given for a honest opinion by the author*

    13. 3 StarsFirst off, I would just like to say: Michael Scofield called, and he would like his mental disorder back! There is something to be said about borrowing from the inspiration of shows and books that you yourself enjoy, that I have no issue with. However, not only is one of the scenes basically a carbon-copy of the reveal of Michael’s “gift” in ‘Prison Break’ but it is also something which we are TOLD and not shown. I hope we will see more show of this behaviour in the future becau [...]

    14. 1.5 starsA Shade of Vampire is an enjoyable, light, extremely short read. is what I would have liked to said but my fingers keep twitching towards Stay away, it's a piece of crap.I couldn't help but point out various grammatical mistakes and the repetition of sentences when they're everywhere. There's only so many times when a person can say, "Welcome to the *insert-place-here*"! It got to a point where I was begging for no more shitty dialogue. Although, this could have been easily fixed if the [...]

    15. 4.5 Super romantic, alpha male, oh my goodness starsI’ve seen A Shade of Vampire for years. It’s been on ’s best sellers list forever, but I never picked it up. I realized there is an extended version that has been tweaked and I figured, why not?As of today there are 22 books in the series, BUT do not fret, only the first 8 books are Sofia’s and Derek’s story. I know I was a bit scared too. I had no expectations getting into this series, I was just in a Young Adult paranormal mood and [...]

    16. A copy of A Shade of Vampire was kindly sent to me by Bella Forrest in exchange for an honest review. I really disliked A Shade of Vampire. It seems to me that Forrest has taken a book from the Stephenie Meyer school of writing and followed it exactly. The plot is bland, it’s full of purple prose, the characters are completely unlikable and the heroine made me want to throw things and scream. It manages to be sexist and misogynistic on practically every page – our darling protagonist Sofia i [...]

    17. "She was the most beautiful to behold— not because her appearance drew me in above and beyond the others.No. She was beautiful because, at a time when she had every right to be terrified, she managed to show comfort to another person who needed it. The moment she’d grabbed the hand of the girl beside her, all the others had paled in comparison. She showed me a humanity I longed to return to. But I was the predator."2.5 Stars. Not Bad. Is this as good as Vampire Academy? No. Is it as terrible [...]

    18. This book totally took me by surprise, in a good way! With a brave and determined heroine, sexy vampire brothers with a bitter rivalry that is shaping their fate (mmm, hello Damon and Stefan*sigh*), and a war brewing behind the scenes that is sure to bring suspense and thrills, this is definitely a series to watch. Add to that a beautiful romance that leaves you gasping for more as the first book comes to a close, and I AM HOOKED!"Every second that kiss lasted was another second meant for the tr [...]

    19. Reading the description of this book made me think mehybe not my kind of read but it being a short story I thought why not. I'm SO GLAD I ended up reading this book! The description gave me a completely different picture in my mind as to what I ended up reading. I was drawn in from start to finish and felt disappointed that it ended so soon that I didn't hesitate to buy the next book straight after. I really liked that the drama starts so early in the book and doesn't drag on about the past and [...]

    20. I have to honestly say that this was very very enjoyable. Quick, clean, well written, nicely drawn characters, reasonable plot, interesting world building, no over the top unnecessary gibberish just to jazz up a vampire PNR book, no insta-love syndrome. Didn't know what to expect and stayed away from any reviews so as not to spoil the story. Went into it without any expectations other than the fact that readers seemed to like it as the ratings were fairly high. Got this great little book for fre [...]

    21. I found A SHADE OF VAMPIRE thanks to recommendations, it had over 600 five-star ratings, and it was a mere $.99 for Kindle. I was kinda excited to find something new.It was a trap.Our main POV first-person narrators are Sofia and Derek. Sofia is our red-haired, green-eyed young woman vacationing with a friend's family when she's abducted on the night of her 17th birthday. Derek is the 500 year old vampire prince just woken from a four century slumber and given his own harem of beautiful human w [...]

    22.   It was only 149 pages long, but I gave up at the 30%.  I am so incredibly sorry. I really am. A couple of months ago I entered a giveaway to win this book, which I did not do. However, the author approached me with the opportunity to read it in exchange of an honest review. Well, the honest to Rowling truth is that the book (what I read) bored me. The writing wasn't necessarily bad, and maybe if I had continued the story and characters would have gotten better. I SWEAR I tried, I really did. [...]

    23. One day, many months ago, in a fit of insanity I got this while it was on some sort of a sale. And today I had some free time. So I though "Why the hell not". And while it was not awful it was definitely boring. And flat. And I couldn't muster any sympathy for Sofia. Or any feeling other than mild disgust about Derek. So I know I won't pick up the rest of the series. Especially seeing as to how many of them there are. I guess I really am too old for YA.

    24. Wow! What a great start to a new world of vampires. Loved this short read and can't wait to get my hands on book 2! The characters are fabulous and the world that has been built is really intriguing. Even though it's an incredibly short read, it's full of emotion & connections. I didn't feel rushed & there was just enough balance in the details given to where I grasped a clear picture of everything. Loved it!

    25. I love a good vampire story. The power, the darkness, the badass men it all just works for me. Now I would choose a shifter over a vamp if i ever got a choice but a girl has to keep her options open so I am always willing to entertain the thought a hot vamper ;) Derek for me is a little like Eric Northman; He loves what is his, he thinks about/is into being more mainstream/working with the humans instead of just thinking they are all food, he is in a position of power, he feels little to no regr [...]

    26. I started reading this book expecting nothing really just a short vampire story and since I am not a big fan of vampires I thought that I might not even like the story, but because of the book's length I gave it a try. Little did I know I would end up loving it at the end.A Shade of Vampire is the story of Sofia, a girl that has been taken captive just to enter a vampire prince's harem and Derek, the prince who just woke up from a 400 years sleep and who hates what he has become. The story was f [...]

    27. DNF at 61%Why didn't I stop reading sooner? Written in alternating first-person POV (Sofia and Derek), this YA paranormal romance introduces two characters I was supposed to care about. It didn't happen. Sophia Claremont walks the beach at night nursing a wounded heart. (Her best friend forgot her birthday and his attentions are all on his new girlfriend.) Her beauty captures the attention of a vampire who wants to possess her and she is kidnapped. Due to a prophecy the vampire who captured who [...]

    28. This book was horrible.Sofia was boring. The only significant thing about her was that she apparently had some superfreak powers that made her 'creative'. Because we all know that painting a picture of a beach on a wall reminds everyone of the sun. Obviously. ''They're the loveliest among a recent hunt we made''"Despite my predicament my ears pricked up at the last statement. 'Lovely' was not something I had ever been described as before''"Can I just point out how monumentally stupid this is? Sh [...]
