Of Light and Darkness (Of Light and Darkness #1) by Shayne Leighton #BookReview

 
Shayne Leighton's stunning New Adult debut is a fiercely imaginative, multilayered dark fantasy where Alice In Wonderland meets Anne Rice's Interview With The Vampire in a story about a girl caught between two societies . . . two magic sides . . . and two loves.

Charlotte is the only mortal in a society of beasts and nightmarish things. By night, she hunts other humans to satiate her Vampire guardian. By day, she struggles to find her place of belonging among the magic and monsters.
But when war conflicts her peaceful, however odd little life, she must fight for love and survival the only way she knows how...
...with her blood.

The world building in this book is really good. I could picture myself in the world with the character. There were also a lot of twists and turns that had me on the edge of my seat till the very end. I found it interesting that the secondary characters were so developed and interesting. These secondary characters really add to the story in my opinion. I also really enjoyed this cover! GORGEOUS!
