Synopsis: (Goodreads):

When Lenah Beaudonte, a 500-year-old vampire queen, wakes up a human teenager at an ultra-cliquey prep schoo, she must choose between embracing the humanity she’s always craved and saving her new friends from her vicious coven. The first in a sizzling new YA series.

Lenah Beaudonte is, in many ways, your average teen: the new girl at Wickham Boarding School, she struggles to fit in enough to survive and stand out enough to catch the eye of the golden-boy lacrosse captain. But Lenah also just happens to be a recovering five-hundred-year-old vampire queen. After centuries of terrorizing Europe, Lenah is able to realise the dream all vampires have – to be human again. After performing a dangerous ritual to restore her humanity, Lenah entered a century-long hibernation, leaving behind the wicked coven she ruled over and the eternal love who has helped grant her deep-seated wish.


Until, that is, Lenah draws her first natural breath in centuries at Wickham and rediscovers a human life that bears little resemblance to the one she had known. As if suddenly becoming a teenager weren’t stressful enough, each passing hour brings Lenah closer to the moment when her abandoned coven will open the crypt where she should be sleeping and find her gone. As her borrowed days slip by, Lenah resolves to live her newfound life as fully as she can. But, to do so, she must answer ominous questions: Can an ex-vampire survive in an alien time and place? What can Lenah do to protect her new friends from the bloodthirsty menace about to descend upon them? And how is she ever going to pass her biology midterm.

Review:

So, I know I’ve already done a review for Infinite Days, but I recently (well, last month) was sent the paperback version of infinite Days! I have to admit I prefer the PROOF copies cover, but I do really like the paperback version.

So having read the book before, I knew what was going to happen, but that didn’t actually take any of the surprise or emotions away from me. I still cried when certain characters died, and I still love Rhode and Tony as much as I did before. Might be slightly warming up to Justin, MIGHT BE!

I was able to cope better between the swtiching of time periods this time, and enjoyed it a lot more. I think Ms Maizel wrote a truly amazing book, and I don’t think i’m going to ever stop saying this! It’s about vampires, yes, but never before (am I aware) of their being a story of a vampire becoming human again… It’s so different to any other vampire book i’ve read – and i’ve read many!

I definitely suggest giving this book a chance! I let my friend borrow it and got her addicted; she’s now as excited for Stolen Night as I am! If you don’t read it you’re missing out!

Rating: 5/5 still!
