Visit her website at See all Product description I expected a light read - even a comical one. You see light bantering between Lucius and Jessica (also known as Antanasia).
Jessica finds him annoying and overbearing whereas Lucius does whatever he can to convince Jessica that she's his betrothed and a vampire princess.
Realizing that Jessica was not raised to handle her vampire life, Lucius begins to distance himself from Jessica - only to have Jessica start accepting her heritage. yet their are also so many original twists to the story, it makes my head spin to keep up with the two.
During this time, Lucius figures out some dark secrets of his own family and decides to break their contract of marriage in order to save Jessica's own life. The ball is in Jessica's court - does she continue to live out her normal life, or does she embrace her fate ... What I love about this story is that you can really see the character development happen right before your eyes with the two main characters, as well as a few others.
even if there is a chance she has lost her vampire fiance? Jessica actually develops feelings for Lucius over the course of the story, she doesn't just automatically fall in love with him as soon as she sees him or as soon as he shows chivalry.
Lucius is hard at first, set on bringing Jessica back to marry her as part of his duty - but her ways charms him into actually feeling something for her. The story is told from Jessica's point of view (in 1st person pov), but you get breaks and a peek in Lucius' mind through his letters to his uncle scattered throughout the book. He reminded me a lot of Stewie Griffin - and that's a very good thing!
The story was wrapped up really well and everything just seemed to flow seamlessly. If there is one thing I regret about this book, it's not reading it sooner!
The romance sizzles, the plot develops ingeniously and suspensefully, and the satire sings." - Publishers Weekly, starred review "Fantaskey sustains a wholly believable contemporary teen world against a backdrop of vampire romance-Jessica and her friends look and talk like real teens, and her wry sense of humor is delightful, especially when describing an archrival who has her eye on Lucius.
