Confused and frightened, Sarah clings to Nikolas and Kristopher, unsure of her place in this new world. No longer a Vida, and knowing that her own mother has issued an order for her death, Sarah is certain that turning herself in, allowing the family to terminate her undead existence, would be the best for all concerned. Sarah does not expect that her intended sacrifice will escalate the existing conflict and bring the fight between witch and vampire to a violent conclusion.
I enjoyed the continuing conflict between the Vida line and the vampire race, and appreciated Adia’s courage in accepting the role her mother assigned to her, though she wanted nothing more than to save her sister. The bond between Adia and Sarah was very strong, and seeing the two women working from opposite sides towards the same outcome was interesting. The characters were believable, the descriptions clear and easy to imagine, and my attention was captured from the very beginning.
