The only problem? Pearl’s starting to feel the twinges of a conscience. How can she serve up her new friends — especially the cute guy who makes her fangs ache — to be slaughtered? Then again, she’s definitely dead if she lets down her Family. What’s a sunlight-loving vamp to do?
Pearl is a snarky teenage vampire who likes to eat her icecream via the blood of an awkward Dairy Hut worker. After sucking on his neck one night she is impaled by a unicorn – yep, she didn’t believe it either – and as a result she is able to walk in daylight. Her nasty family see this as an opportunity for daytime hunting, especially given they have to provide a meal for the vamp king’s visit, so they send her off to high school to find juicy young prey.
It’s not too hard to figure out who the unicorn is, but what happens when Pearl discovers her humanity is unexpected and gripping. Evan is a swoony love interest, and I absolutely loved every time wannabe vampire hunters Zeke and Matt came on the scene. Their dialogue almost stole the show for me. A fabulous book, and the cover is just to die for.
