Evangeline has spent her teenage years in obscurity. Her foster parents have the emotional aptitude of robots and her classmates barely acknowledge her existence. About to turn eighteen and feeling like a social pariah, she is desperate to connect with someone. Anyone.
When Evangeline meets Sophie after literally stumbling upon her café, she believes she’s found that connection. Willing to do anything to keep it, she accepts a job as Sofie’s assistant and drops everything to fly to Manhattan, where she is thrust into a luxurious world of Prada, diamonds, and limitless cash. 
With such generosity and kindness, it’s easy for Evangeline to dismiss certain oddities... like Sofie’s erratic and sometimes violent behavior, and the monstrous guard dogs. She’s even willing to dismiss her vivid dreams of mob-style murders, beautiful homeless people living in caves, and white-eyed demons that haunt her each night as figments of her imagination—especially when one of those figments is the gorgeous Caden. When she wakes up with bite marks on her neck, the fairy tale quickly turns into a nightmare. She slowly unravels the mystery surrounding Sofie and friends, and the reality of the bites and the “dreams.” What she discovers is far more mysterious and terrible than anything she could have imagined. 

The first thing the pulled me to this books was the cover. The cover is really pretty and attention grabbing. It makes you wonder what is going in inside that book?!

Then I skimmed the synopsis thinking that this sounds like a very interesting book, and it’s free!

Barns & Noble            Amazon

THEN I started reading the book and I was instantly hooked!

Evangeline is a character that you cannot help but love! She’s naive in an endearing way. And her story is so tragic that you really do feel for her and you don’t dislike her for being naïve because you are hoping that she is right. Evangeline is pulled into a crazy world where, despite her instants to trust those around her, any wrong move could kill her or those she trust. And she doesn't even know who she can trust.

This is a wonderful story! Full of interesting characters that keep you guessing. Every time you think you have figured something out, there’s an unexpected surprise! It’s refreshing to read such a well-written paranormal story. It has a little bit of everything! You should just read it, trust me!

Annd it’s a series! I already got the second bookAsylum. I think there are four books in totally but the fourth one has yet to be printed, giving us time to catch up….
