*** Eyes like violet sapphires. Wings of smoldering fire. Consume your true love’s blood. Become the Eternal Vampire. ***
Once upon a time there lived a vampire with wings and the genie who loved her…
Born of the seven magics, Jasmine is different in every way, including the obnoxious wings on her back courtesy of the original Vampires. She wants to be normal, to be a regular teenaged girl.
When a gorgeous dark-haired boy named Laeddin shows up and promises to sneak her away from all her problems and hide her in the human world, she agrees.
But an evil lurks in her nightmares, a man with red eyes. It doesn’t take long for Jasmine to realize that no matter how far she tries to run from who she is, he’s only a dream away. He wants her. He needs her. He acts as though he loves her.
It’s becoming harder and harder to tell the difference between the path that’ll lead to her happily ever after, and the path that’ll lead to her destruction as well as all magic.

Ok I’m ashamed to admit I haven’t read Blood and Snow season 1. BUT WHEW am I going to now! 5 crazy ++++ beautiful +++++ magical stars! It’s like taking all of the fairytales you loved as a kid, mixing them up and putting some dark, twisty, hot and steamy elements in them. WOW is all I can say! If you haven’t read the first series. YOU MUST but don’t worry. The story unfolds beautifully without knowing the history of the Vampire Queen. I can’t wait to read them all now *squeals*~!
Ok on with the show.
Jasmine is a teenage original vampire. Daughter of Snow White, the Vampire Queen. She also sports huge black wings that no other vampire of her kinds has. She hates them and believes they keep her from living a normal life (or as normal as a teenager vampire can be). After arguing with her parents one night she decides to return to her favorite hidden spot. A magical cave where she meets Laeddan.
Laeddan is and has always been captivated by Jasmine. He watches her every time she enters his home. He tries to hold back but appears before her. She is as captivated by him as he is her. His blood is intoxicating. When he tells her he is a genie and that by her finding his cave has made her his mistress. What does a girl do? She wants to be normal. So she wishes it and off to Salem she goes where her wings are hidden and she can finally go to high school like a normal girl. Only problem she still is a vampire and still craves blood. Though Laedden helps her out in any way he can she still struggles with the urges and tries to make friends. She finds that being a human teenager is much harder than she thought. She is tricked into going into the woods by a girl from school where she comes across a man that has been cause of the recent killings. She is attacked and fends him off only to find out that he is not human. He vows revenge and starts hurting people that she cares about.
When that person happens to be Laeddan she is determined to do everything in her power to save him. Then…wait for it…wait for it.
BIG GIANT CLIFFHANGER LOL
Let’s just say I really really REALLY can’t wait to read the next one and can only hope it’s as good as this.
