Talor Gardin may be a princess, but her life is no fairy tale.

A year ago, her mother died and her father burned down their house. Now with a father in and out of a mental ward, she’s working a minimum wage job to finish her last semester of college. To make matters worse, she gets itchy every time a guy makes a move on her. The itch could be anything, really: a desire to escape her haunted hometown, a financial windfall, the name of some vampire…or all the above. Whatever the reason, she thinks the answers are written in the freckle constellations of her cute new coworker, Sage Talis.

Sage is the quiet, polite type with plenty of secrets – like fangs and a price on his head – and Talor can’t figure out what makes him so irresistible until she hears him sing. But when cryptic letters appear on her wrist, Talor is thrust into a world where fantastic creatures lurk just below the skin, strangers keep calling her a princess, and everything she’s been through is nothing compared to what’s coming.
Safari Spell is a native of Albany, Georgia. She has a BA in Journalism from Valdosta State University. She currently lives in North Georgia with her husband, hilarious daughter, and a backyard jungle harboring all the dinosaurs everyone thinks are extinct. Her dreams include chasing autumn around the globe, owning a wallaby, and riding a camel for at least nine seconds.

A Vampire rock band! How crazy cool is that?! Woot woot.
OK this book started out normal enough (actually a good 1/3 of it), then at a party (of course, everything weird happens at a party) Talor's "date/but not date" changes... into something - she's not sure what or even if it really happened. Because after all - could something that strange really happen - she was drinking. Always blame it on the alcohol. But then her hot crush, Sage, tells her he's a vampire! Whaaat? For real?

From there the story just gets insanely fun. My only teensie problem with this is that I did not like any of the characters. Nope. didn't really like Talor, not even hot Sage. I just couldn't connect with them, they didn't feel real to me. But still a super fun paranormal story! Kind of an nontraditional, new twist on the old vampire story, refreshing.

And, I have to say for her first book - its a good one! Definitely makes you want to read the next! I personally am looking forward to FOR THE AGES, book 2.
