After the Eclipse—he night vampires began openly slaughtering human victims—everything changed. Out of fear, the government salvaged what remained of the human population and enclosed them in massive, security-laden cities called White Sectors, while marking the vampire infested territory as Red Sectors.
When seventeen-year-old Sloane McAllister’s twin brother disappears, she seems to be the only one who thinks he isn’t dead, and vows to stop at nothing to find him. Gathering her courage, she braves the Red Sector to search for clues to his whereabouts. By chance, she encounters Aden, a handsome, charismatic vampire with a hidden agenda. He turns Sloane against her will, and whisks her away to his underground city. Enemies quickly become friends as Sloane struggles against her attraction to Aden, and resists her growing loyalties to the creatures that ruined her life. But the vampires themselves are the least of her problems. The city is harboring a devastating secret, one that could change the tide of the war and threaten to destroy everything Sloane has come to believe in.

I’ve never been a huge dystopian fan, but this book totally got me from the very beginning and, I have to say, that a dystopian in a vampire society it’s definitely something to try!

The whole theory of vampires is very interesting and during the story we met few characters whom you can hate, love, or wonder about, but one thing is sure, you can’t be indifferent to Captain Knight . . . And, trust me, he’s a revelation under many aspects . . . If this wasn’t enough to catch your attention, you should know that almost every chapter has a sort of cliffhanger that leaves you with no choice . . . You have to keep reading! I couldn’t believe myself when I stopped, but every now and then everyone needs to eat and sleep, right? Anyway, it was a fast read, pleasurable, intriguing with lots of action always ready to jump on you, a few emotional moments, a couple of things at the end I didn’t see coming at all (I love when it happens!), and a need to know what is going to happen next!

Krystle Jones what did you do? I’m in a desperate mood for book two!!
