When Lenah Beaudonte, a 500-year-old vampire queen, wakes up a human teenager at an ultra-cliquey prep school, she must choose between embracing the humanity she’s always craved and saving her new friends from her vicious coven. The first in a sizzling new YA series.

Lenah Beaudonte is, in many ways, your average teen: the new girl at Wickham Boarding School, she struggles to fit in enough to survive and stand out enough to catch the eye of the golden-boy lacrosse captain. But Lenah also just happens to be a recovering five-hundred-year-old vampire queen. After centuries of terrorizing Europe, Lenah is able to realize the dream all vampires have -- to be human again. After performing a dangerous ritual to restore her humanity, Lenah entered a century-long hibernation, leaving behind the wicked coven she ruled over and the eternal love who has helped grant her deep-seated wish.

Until, that is, Lenah draws her first natural breath in centuries at Wickham and rediscovers a human life that bears little resemblance to the one she had known. As if suddenly becoming a teenager weren’t stressful enough, each passing hour brings Lenah closer to the moment when her abandoned coven will open the crypt where she should be sleeping and find her gone. As her borrowed days slip by, Lenah resolves to live her newfound life as fully as she can. But, to do so, she must answer ominous questions: Can an ex-vampire survive in an alien time and place? What can Lenah do to protect her new friends from the bloodthirsty menace about to descend upon them? And how is she ever going to pass her biology midterm?

Before I review the story itself I HAVE to review the book cover. 5/5STARS, this is got to be one of the most beautiful covers I have seen this year. This picture does it no justice. The Hardback itself has the image of Lenah on it and its very shiny. The dust cover is white and transparent so you can see Lenah coming through from underneath. It has pretty embossed silver flower design that is subtle yet very eyecatching. I just love the cover!!!

So for the story. Well honestly, I was a little disappointed in this book. I had real high hopes from reading really great reviews. It is very very slow and doesn't really get going until half way through the story then it is quite good. I seem to find myself more interested in the flashback stories then the characters present story.

However, this is a very good twist on the vampire story. I have never read anything like it because this is the story of an EX-Vampire lol. The characters have their good points and bad. Lenah who is the main character I didn't really warm to her as a human but during her flashback I really liked her and her vampires because they are proper vampires, killing, drinking blood and evil like vampires are meant to be. Lenah falls for Justin, who I didn't like at all. There relationship just got on my nerves. (not very good at explaining without giving away spoilers). My two fave characters are Rhode (Lenah's maker) and Tony (Lenah's best friend). I found them really easy to connect with.

I would really love to have prequel of this all about Rhode and Lenah and the other vampires that would make a real interesting story getting to read about how vampires are meant to be.

Overall though, its a quick read and that doesn't really have any suprises you kind of knew what was going to happn. However, there is one part I didn't except and I cried my eyes out so much. And as I said once the story picks up its is quite good.

I will pick up the next installement Stolen Nights because Infinite Days leaves you on a cliffhanger that you just need to know what is going to happen.
