"Throughout all my histories, I found no one I loved more than you...no one."
Those were some of Rhode's last words to me. The last time he would pronounce his love. The last time I would see his face.
It was the first time in 592 years I could take a breath. Lay in the sun. Taste. Rhode sacrificed himself so I, Lenah Beaudonte, could be human again. So I could stop the blood lust.
I never expected to fall in love with someone else that wasn't Rhode.But Justin was...daring. Exciting. More beautiful than I could dream.I never expected to be sixteen again...then again, I never expected my past to come back and haunt me...
This book would have to be one of my personal favorites. It has nothing you would expect from a Young Adult writer to write about. When you first pick up the book you get that Anne Rice feeling with it. Like there is a maturity that does not really belong in a YA novel but as you get more along into it, you realize that it fits all to well. Infinite Days is not your average vampire story. There is of course love, drama, magic, power, and a hell of a lot of feminism. Lenah had all the power in the palm of her hand. A powerful vampire, she was considered one of her kind until Rhode sacrificed himself to turn her human. Stuck in a private school, she has to learn how to transition from the killing machine she once was to accepting her past and trying to move on with her life. Most of this book really is about Lenah finding herself and her true humanity. After living without a soul for so long, she was questioning basically everything she was.
I feel that this is a story that many people would enjoy with it's romantic element and heart breaker, Justin. What's the point in reading a vampire story about redemption if there is not steamy action? It would just get boring and feel like if you are reading the world's most unexciting biography. This book comes highly recommended and it gets the Spunky seal of approval.
