With over 7 million copies sold in the series and more than 138,800 worldwide 5-star reviews, A Shade of Vampire will transport fans of TwilightThe Mortal Instruments and The Vampire Diaries to a world unlike any other...

On the evening of Sofia Claremont's seventeenth birthday, she is sucked into a nightmare from which she cannot wake. A quiet evening walk along a beach brings her face to face with a dangerous pale creature that craves much more than her blood.

She is kidnapped to The Shade, an enchanted island where the sun is eternally forbidden to shine - an island uncharted by any map and ruled by the most powerful vampire coven on the planet. She wakes here as a slave, a captive in chains.

Sofia's life takes a thrilling and terrifying turn when she is selected out of hundreds of girls to take up residence in the tree-top harem of Derek Novak, the dark royal prince.

Despite his addiction to power and obsessive thirst for her blood, Sofia soon realizes that the safest place on the island is within his quarters, and she must do all within her power to win him over if she is to survive even one more night.

Will she succeed? Or is she destined to the same fate that all other girls have met at the hands of the Novaks?

Review:

"...an utterly enthralling, highly exciting and beautifully sensitive story... Five stars and a standing ovation for A Shade of Vampire and its wonderful author, Bella Forrest."
- Books4Tomorrow

"Bella Forrest transports you into a story with many defining moments and an unlikely set of heroes. In a narrative world overrun with supernatural creatures full of angst, A Shade of Vampire puts a new spin on a crowded genre. Sofia and Derek have a chemistry that cannot be denied. Move over Bella and Edward and make room for Sofia and Derek! A Shade of Vampire is unique, passionate, thrilling, and full of intrigue! A blend reminiscent of "Beauty and the Beast" and "Twilight", this story grabs you from page one!"- Faerie Tale Books

"A Shade of Vampire was brilliant. It was the perfect mix of romance, suspense and fantasy all rolled into one ... The author Bella Forrest has just gained a new fan ...  I challenge you to read this book and not love it."- Get Lost In Fiction

"...a sexy vampire twist, an unforgettable romance that sizzles from start to finish. It's a perfect read for Twilight fans and vampire fans in general."
- YA Book Season

"I can't even remember the last vampire romance I read that I loved as much as this one."
- Just A Book Lover Reviews

"This is the kind of book you can re-read over and over again and not get bored. The plot is intriguing, the characters are great, and the ending will leave you left begging for more!"
- City of Books
"Watching the relationship between Sofia and Derek blossom was fascinating ... A Shade of Vampire has set some high expectations for me." 

- Bookworm Brandee  What Amazon reviewers are saying: "This story pulled at my heart. The author's writing pulled me right into the story and I didn't want to put the book down. I am absolutely going to continue this series!!" "Very well written, excellent plot lines and energizing story lines, I recommend this series to anyone who enjoys a bit of romance mixed with fantasy- I call it escapism, and this series did that for me!" "A wonderful twist on vampires like I've never seen before. The more you read the more you fall hopelessly in love with the story and every single character - even the evil ones." "This is one of the best YA vampire series I've ever read! A Shade of Vampire is in a whole different ball park than all other vampire novels, including Twilight!" "Hooked on the new series! Can't read them fast enough!! Highly recommended!" "I'm addicted to these books!" "Bella Forrest whisks you away to the Shade, which is constantly transforming as the series progresses. I'm currently on A Shade of Vampire 40. Yes, she has held my attention for that long! Every book is captivating and pulls at your heart. I find myself wishing I could be in the Shade. The romance, action, danger, and supernatural creatures keep me coming back. I've also read her spin offs involving the characters of The Shade. They give you a deeper understanding of those characters. They're like the chocolate and cherries on top of a delicious brownie sundae..." "The Shade series has the perfect mix of action, romance, and mystery. Everything I love in a book! I would definitely recommend reading!" "By the time I finished the book, I was hooked and I knew this was a series I wanted to read. There is a lot of twists, internal conflict, drama intertwined with an underlying love story of survival." "I'm so glad I finally bought this book. It is a great and refreshing addition to the Vampire genre!" "I just finished the first book and I am absolutely not going to be sleeping tonight...I must read the next book." "The intensity between the characters holds your interest and leaves you questioning what's next. Check it out! I had to buy the second book!" "Freaking loved this! Great story line, interesting and complex characters, and a fun take on vampires! I fell in love with the characters and found myself thinking of them long after I finished the book." "From the very beginning I was intrigued and powerless to stop reading ! The story had such a profound impact on me that I was physically and emotionally moved every step of the way! Upon reaching the end I am desperate to continue to the second book.... I absolutely loved this read and would recommend it to everyone!" "So very vivid you feel as though you're right there in the story with the characters, maybe looking in from a distance, but so very close that you can almost hear, feel, touch everything that's going on." "This book was everything I wanted Twilight to be: a suspenseful vampire romance with a strong heroine and a handsome male supporting lead." "This book deserves a 10 in my opinion, but since 5 is the highest, I will settle for that!" "It's just wickedly beautiful."
