Fallen by Stacy Claflin

**** out of 5 (really liked it)

I got this book free from http://storycartel.com/ in exchange for a fair and honest review.

Genre:
Novella, Young Adult, Paranormal

Synopsis:
Is love enough to make a bad vampire turn good?

Samantha Erikson is a vampire with one mission: to rule the world. She’s spent decades winning over the world’s most feared vampire, Vince Moretti. Just when everything is going according to plan, he sidetracks her with the assignment of pretending to be a high school student in a small town.

It’s humiliating enough going from stilettos to sneakers, but Samantha must also follow the most boring person alive: the teenage girl who stands between her and the throne. When she has had all she can take, she finds a fun distraction: an attractive football player who isn't scared of vampires, but there's one problem. Against her better judgment, she falls in love with him. Now she must decide between the mortal she adores and a place of power in the vampire world. If she tries to have both, she could lose everything.

This is the prequel to the Transformed series - it can be read independently from the series. 

Review:
This is a prequel to a series that I haven't read but based on this novella, it is now on my t-b-r list.  It has left me with enough questions that need answering and the only way I'll get answers is to read the books.  Still not 100% sure why 'Alexis' needs to be got rid off or why she is so fully ignored by everyone.  Samantha is a vampire who prefers fear-laced blood as it tastes sweeter.  Until she meets, and gets to know, Tanner.  Then she finds that love-laced blood tastes just as good.  

This is a prequel and a novella so please bear that in mind - it is not a complete story but enough to give you some background and to irk your interest.  As a taster for a new series and with a background story that I'm sure will make more sense once the series is read, then I can definitely recommend this.  It's certainly left me wanting more so in my book that's mission accomplished.
