Book Description:A young girl (Kailah) discovers that she is from a lost and forgotten powerful Immortal blood line after she meets a strange new physician at work. She begins to have visions and see spirits and has trouble controlling bad things from happening when she is angry. Along the way she discovers the terrible truth about who she is and the incredible power that is locked away deep inside her. Her Immortal ancestors want to use her to destroy the vampire race. Vampires want to use her power to destroy her Immortal ancestors. But hiding in the shadows are those who have been watching her since she was born. They want to help Kailah discover who she is and help her learn to use her abilities. They simply want for her to make the right decision before it's too late. Unfortunately for them time is not on their side and the Rogue Vampires have plans for Kailah no one could have imagined.
This story has a promising premise. A girl has visions of a woman fighting a vampire which comes true. Kailah has abilities and she belongs to a race of immortals. But somehow it wasn't coming together for me. I liked the idea but I thought the story needed more development. I couldn't get a good feel for Kailah and I wasn't caring as much about her story as I would have liked. The writing is promising and I feel that the author does have talent. This is the beginning of a series, so maybe it will get better as it continues. 3 stars.
