Summary ~ from goodreads~

When Amelia Caldwell learned that she was marked by a vampire's soul, she did what any smart, self-preserving person would have done: tried to run. But thanks to the soulmate bond that tethered her mentally and emotionally to her vampire soulmate,, Mitchell Lang, running was not an option and finding out she was a witch didn't make her life any easier.

Now, Amelia has made peace with her new supernatural life and accepted her destiny with Mitchell, one of the most powerful vampires in the world.  They are finally getting along but Amelia is sure he is hiding something - something big.

Little does she know that this is just the calm before the storm. When Mitchell's former flame resurfaces and Eric's dreams become distorted visions of his soulmate, hostility and tension threatens to tear their world apart.

Just when Amelia thinks life couldn't get any crazier, vampires and human start turning up dead. The killer--something more sinister and haunting than your run of the mill psychopath - is heading straight for their front door.

My Review:

Ashley Stoyanoff is a very talented writer. I love the world she has created. Willowberg is a town with vampires, soulmates, humans and witches.Even though the most of the characters are supernatural, they are relate able because of the emotional ties and relationships they have.  I'm glad that the story is not told in the first person. I can feel right along with all the characters. I developed a connection and understanding with the struggles they all faced.. I laughed, cried, felt the love and even anger. I love a story that takes my emotions for a ride.

The murders of humans and vampires shakes up Willowberg. The mystery, the suspense and the action did not just affect the main characters, it affected the entire town. This is a community that bans together when faced with danger. I enjoyed experiencing the loyalty the entire community has with each other. The trust and respect that the humans of Willowberg have, shows that Mitchell has earned it. Mitchell obviously has an emotional tie and wants to do the right thing for everyone.

Amelia and Mitchell's relationship  constantly faces struggles.  I know Mitchell can seem very mean but Amelia is very stubborn, They both have reasons to be acting the way they do ( they both have good intentions) and they both have the desire to make their relationship work. They are awesome when they learn to work together. I do not want to give any spoilers, but I do want to make one comment. In this story we see two relationships that should not be compared.

The last chapter pulled everything together and all seems to be ending well.......then bang!! Cliffhanger!!
I really did not see that coming! I feel like I am on the edge, desperately hanging on to read the continuation of this wonderful world.
