Clair was tired of waiting for her parents to pick her up from the airport, so she took a taxi home. She had been away at college and was anxious to get home. When she got there though, the police were there investigating the deaths of her parents, who it seems had been murdered three days prior. Also, her teenage brother JJ was missing. Evidence pointed to a vampire kill. But the Vow had been in effect for over 100 years, allowing humans and vampires to co-exist without fear of each other. Clair didn’t want to wait for the police to solve the murder, as well as find her brother. So, she decides to do her own investigating. Although she finds herself in constant danger from unreliable vampires, she does find one in particular that she feels she can trust. And with his help, she begins to uncover the truth about her family.
The mystery of the murders, and Claire’s family background had me reading this story straight through. It was full of suspense and intrigue, and kept me on my toes trying to figure who to trust. I liked the characters, at least the ones that survived. The plot and characters reminded me a lot of the TV series Moonlight, a vampire show that was good, but had a short run. I hope to read more about Claire, Conner, and Detective Reynolds.

2. Some cultures believed that Vampires were arithmomaniacs and if you were being chased, you could throw a handful of rice at them to force the Vampire to stop and count each grain. This could also be the origin of “The Count” from Sesame Street.
3. A physics professor proved mathematically that vampires could not exist since, if they fed once a month and each victim became a vampire, within two and a half years the entire population of the earth would be one.

5. In medieval times, red hair was associated with moral degradation and intense sexual desire. Redheads were regarded as vampires, werewolves, and witches. The Spanish Inquisition singled them out for persecution, believing their hair to be sure sign that they stole the fires of hell.
6. According to a Romanian legend, you’ll need a 7-year-old boy and a white horse to find a Vampire.
