Infinite Days by Rebecca Maizel

Infinite Days (Vampire Queen #1) by Rebecca Maizel


Rating: 5 Stars

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 realize 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?

First Thoughts: I won a signed copy of this book from FreeBookFriday.com so I didn't know exactly what this book would be like but I fell in love with the cover. It's got a shine to it and the flawless face with that blue tear, it's a remarkable cover. If I had picked this up in the store the synopsis would have gotten me. It really intrigued me.

Writing Style: Rebecca's style is okay, not my type but it was perfect for this character. It sounded just as old fashioned as Lenah seemed to be. She was a very old vampire and her language isn't very modern.

Characters: Lenah is a great character. She used to be an evil vampire queen who was given the chance to be human again. Her evil days probably weren't that great, we got a few glances of them but as a human she was the kind of girl anybody could connect with. Tony is a great friend to her. He's an oddball but a great character, he is important to Lenah and her path to being human again.

Final Thoughts: Overall the book was awesome. It took some time for me to get into it but after I did, I really enjoyed the book. It is the first vampire book I have read where the vampire becomes human again. I was happy to find the story wasn't over yet and the next novel will soon be in my hands.
