'Birth of a Vampire' for Gayla Twist.
The book opens up in a way that leaves me wanting more and I have to go on - I started this book earlier today and I couldn't stop until it was finished. There are very well-developed characters who seem realistic both in nature and in their conversations, something I'm not finding enough of lately. Early on I made several predictions thinking I'd made how the whole book would play out but - nope. It took a very different turn and I will not know if ANY of my predictions are correct as the end left me very much hanging. Very well written with good grammar and from a believable standard. The POV switches around a bit and it is done well with great continuity and is very easy to follow.
