Sophia Pierce has suffered since her brother left, and is unsure if she will ever get over it. That is until her family decided to move to Wenham, Massachusetts. Her and her siblings have been ordered to protect their little sister, and must return to High school. Sophia never expected to find relationships that will change the meaning of her existence, and last an eternity and maybe even help heal her from the pain she has suffered.

Sophia soon meet's Nathanial and knows he is her soul mate, but she tries to fight it. The connection between them is too strong for her to resist. After she saves his life from a near fatal attack, Sophia can never lose him, and begins to open up. Her family's secrets soon come out and she will face what she thought could destroy it all.

Sophia has friends, a boyfriend and a place to belong; she loves this small town and vow's to protect it all. Terror is about to set on her sweet little town and she needs to do something to stop it. The Pierce family and their close friends prepare for the biggest fight they never expected, little did they know it is just the beginning.

This is Sophia’s story, a story of a girl who finds herself, love and everlasting friendship. The excitement of this story wraps mortals, vampires, witches, shape shifters and the supernatural all into a romantic tale of young love, friendship, the meaning of family and a girl who finds herself when she thought it was all lost.

My Review:

The book was very good. I couldn't put it down even though it seemed a bit... staged. The plot was very good, with the villains defined and you could practically see trouble coming. The characters were so-so believable and the only one that seemed truly alive was Alex and Caspian, other than that it felt a bit forced or, like I said before, staged. 

I found myself rolling my eyes in almost every page at the cheesy lines thrown in between Sophia and Nate. And the first thought that came to my mind when I began reading the book was Twilight. While I'm not trying to compare the books as to which one was better, I'm saying that this book resembled Twilight a lot. A LOT. But with anew approach. Still, the vampires didn't sparkle but had amulets that made them somehow more human. That was something new for a change. 
The romance between Sophia and Nate was very... romantic. Very. There were times when I couldn't stop smiling and other when I was frowning because it seemed like this was a soap opera in which everything was exaggerated. Perhaps it was just the copy of the book in pdf file that I got, or not, but I noticed a lot of exclamation marks at the end of almost every line Nate was saying, also Sophia, when I thought it wasn't necessary. 
Now, the writing was very good. Charlotte made the story float and I wish Caspian would have come out more. I liked him very much. Besides, she did a great job describing the backgrounds of the characters, though some of them were a bit vague and some she didn't say more than a couple of words about. Perhaps she'll talk more about it in the next book, which I'll definitely want to read because I have nothing against books with super-duper in love couples. I love them.
