Brooke Keller is a high school junior who has never spent much time living in one place. She is finally in a town long enough to almost snag the boy of her dreams, until her life is threatened after killing a fanged man in his attempt to kidnap her. Brooke begins a dangerous journey in an effort to find out who is after her and how to stop them. Thrown into a world with powerful and prejudiced vampires, Brooke must tap into the side of her that she never knew existed at the risk of losing her life in order to save it.

Descended by Blood by Angeline Kace is the first novel in her Vampire Born Trilogy and I loved it. Not many novels can grab my attention from the first page, but this one did.

Teenager Brooke is finally living a normal life after moving around for years with her mother. Now she goes school, she has her best friend Kaitlynn and a new boyfriend Jaren. But when this stranger starts following her and one night demands her to go with him, she knows her life will never be the same. In a fight with this stranger Brooke discovers her speed and strength and knows she has to talk to her mother and “uncle”.

It appears Brooke is half human, half vampire and her father is a very powerful vampire, his enemies want to get rid of him and they need Brooke to complete that task. So now she needs to go into hiding and her friends Kaitlynn and Jaren are coming along, although her boyfriend isn’t too happy about her heritage.

I love the friendship between Brooke and Kaitlynn, they are really best friends because no matter what happens or what Brooke appears to be, Kaitlynn accept it without any questions and support her in every way. You cannot say that from her boyfriend Jaren, in the beginning of the book he’ll do anything to have her as his girlfriend, but the moment he sees her fighting this other vampire and discovers what she is, he says they need a break.

That is why I love Mirko, Brooke’s new bodyguard and her trainer. Mirko doesn’t hide that he really like Brooke and that he will do anything to make her his...and it helps that he is already a vampire and knows what Brooke is going through.

The attraction between Brook and Mirko but also between Brooke and Jaren is great and the competition between the two different men is fabulous. Brooke doesn’t really know who to choose, because she like them both....bet I can give her some advice.

This novel was an amazing read and I desperately want to get my hands on the second novel, especially with that little cliff-hanger at the end. This is definitely a book I would recommend to vampire/young adult loves.
