Evangeline has spent her teenage years in obscurity. Her foster parents have the emotional aptitude of robots, and her classmates barely acknowledge her existence. About to turn 18 and feeling like a social pariah, she is desperate to connect with someone. Anyone.
When Evangeline meets Sophie after literally stumbling upon her café, she believes she's found that connection. Willing to do anything to keep it, she accepts a job as Sofie's assistant and drops everything to fly to Manhattan, where she is thrust into a luxurious world of Prada, diamonds, and limitless cash. With such generosity and kindness, it's easy for Evangeline to dismiss certain oddities...like Sofie's erratic and sometimes violent behavior and the monstrous guard dogs. She's even willing to dismiss her vivid dreams of mob-style murders, beautiful homeless people living in caves, and white-eyed demons that haunt her each night as figments of her imagination - especially when one of those figments is the gorgeous Caden. When she wakes up with bite marks on her neck, the fairy tale quickly turns into a nightmare. She slowly unravels the mystery surrounding Sofie and friends, and the reality of the bites and the "dreams". What she discovers is far more mysterious and terrible than anything she could have imagined.
In a world where everyone has motive to lie for personal gain, Evangeline must decide which deception is least likely to get her killed.

Just couldn't stay hooked
I've tried for two weeks, & I couldn't get hooked on this book. I love K.A. Ticker's other books and have read all, but this one does not live up to her others. (This could be for my own personal lack of imagination and love for vampire storylines though.)

Slow and Steady
Found it a bit slow to start with, but 3 or 4 chapters in, I was hooked. Also not a book I would go for but the premise intrigued me to the point that I had to purchase this book.
The narrator made this book for me, as it is one of those cases like Stephen Fry reading Harry Potter.
