Vampires were her enemies. Until she became one of them.
A Chaser born to kill vampires, sixteen-year-old Rachel Campton has grown up in her older brother's shadow. Until she wakes up a vampire, her own mortal foe. She's stronger, faster than her human self, but haunted by bloodlust and the loss of her beloved younger sister, also a paranormal.
Friendless and lost in enemy territory, Rachel must rely on Alex Wellington, a former nemesis and centuries old vampire who looks like a college football player.
As Rachel goes deep into vamp territory, she learns there is more to the vampire life than killing humans. She also discovers another side to Alex. He is more than a murderer, he is someone that she starts to fall for. Rachel faces the ultimate choice--her new life and unexpected love or the family she left behind, the family that may now want her dead.
Shadow Allegiance is the second novel in this young adult vampire series. Book one, Unholy Alliance, and book 2.1, Rival, are also available.
Let me start by saying that if you've not read the first book (like me) you can still read this book. Lacy throws all the important stuff at the reader to keep you on track of where you're supposed to be in terms of serial knowledge.
This book has a great set of characters that you really want to have a happily ever after. There is just something about them that makes you want them to find what most of us never get.
I really love the way Lacy has developed her characters. Not only did I love the emotions, but I felt like I could relate to them and connect. This is so important- especially when writing in this genre!
It's a great book and I highly recommend it for those that love paranormal books, vampires and a good mix of YA genres. :) Check it out!
