Shelter (Blood Haze:Book One) - Tara Shuler

Synopsis - Two guys, one girl, and two dark secrets that threaten to tear her world apart.

Alice Wright is a young vampire going to high school for the first time at the age of seventeen at the behest of her eccentric mother. In many ways, she's more afraid of the human students than they would be of her.

She feels lost and awkward in human society, but she soon develops a strong bond with the cousin of one of her human classmates, nineteen year old Kai. He is beautiful, but somewhat of an enigma. She discovers a dark secret in Kai's life, and she instantly wants to shelter him from the pain that has tormented him all his life.

Then she meets Maksim Augustine, the incredibly gorgeous guy who seems more like he should be a model than a high school student. She is overwhelmingly attracted to him physically, but her love for Kai causes her to continually push him away. Eventually, she discovers a frightening secret about Max, too.

But Max's secret threatens to destroy everything... (Taken from Goodreads)

Review I won this e-book from LibraryThing Members Giveaways.  A vampire story that is short and easy to read.  Aimed at the teenage/YA audience.  There is some similarity to Twilight, both heroines are the new girls at the local high school but that is where the similarity ends.  I liked the characters.  Kai is a tortured soul but his behaviour is explained as the story continues and Max does sound to good to be true.  I shall have to wait to find out if this is so, in book two.  An enjoyable, light read.  3*
