Infinite Days: Rebecca Maizel

Infinite Days (Vampire Queen, #1)Infinite Days by Rebecca Maizel
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

WHY, publishers, WHY do you insist on turning everything into a series? This book was so good just the way it was - anything more will ruin the enjoyment readers are sure to have when they read Lenah's story. Seriously. There's no need for a sequel. None.

Lenah's a vampire queen. Ancient, old, evil, blah blah blah. Except she's got this one burning desire: to be human again. The love of her very (500-year-long) life, Rhode, finds the ritual that will change her, except in doing so he knows that she's breaking faith the the coven she created. So he hides her as best he can, in a posh boarding school on Cape Cod. There she learns what it's like to be a teenager again. Talk about girl, interrupted! There's computers and CDs and bungee jumping and immodest clothing and all the accoutrements of the 21st century for her to get used to (oh, did I mention her 100-year nap? yeah, no so much with the sleeping beauty, tho').

This is such a refreshing take on the whole vampire myth and I really enjoyed the book. However, I won't read any more in the series because, well, why? This ended in the perfect place. I don't need any thing else.
