Book Description:

“In SAVED (Book #1 of the Shadow Vampires), Keira and Amanda, twins, move with their family to a new town, and start their senior year at a new high school. But though they are twins, the girls have different fates. Amanda, beautiful, popular, is sought out by everyone. Keira, who has always lived in Amanda’s shadow, is smaller, awkward, different. Even her mother, who is so close to Amanda, doesn’t know what to make of her other daughter. Keira turns to books, and to her journal, for solace, and to find out about other worlds.

Amanda makes friends easily at the new school, and quickly finds a boyfriend, while Keira is left alone, an outsider. But very quickly, it is clear that something strange is going on in Everstock. The town and the school are very divided. The popular, rich kids act as if they own the school and have nothing to do with the other kids, who are poorer and live in a different part of town. Not only are the kids meaner here, but an unknown infection has gripped the town, with more and more people going to the hospital. Something here is terribly wrong. But things change suddenly, as there is a terrible accident involving the twins. Not only are Keira and Amanda’s lives changed forever, but a new dimension of life begins to open to Keira.

As Keira recovers, she begins to change in ways she can’t expect, receiving new and mysterious powers that no one can possibly understand. At the same time, a gorgeous, mysterious new boy, Cooper, appears at the school, who grips her imagination, and who refuses to tell her what secret he is hiding.

As Keira and Cooper grow closer to each other, it soon becomes apparent that destiny has brought them together—and that they may each have to sacrifice it all if they want to stay together…
Book #2 in the Shadow Vampire series (TOUCHED) is now also available.”

My Thoughts:

I didn’t know what to expect when I started reading this book.  To my delight, this book was a really awesome read.  I could not put the book down.  I loved the story line and  loved the characters in the book.   I have never read anything by Allegra before but she is an awesome writer.  She writes with a lot of emotion and you can feel the emotion flow through her books and characters.

I really loved Keira.  I could tell from the beginning that she was very special  and  I felt the heartache she went through every day in having to try to live up to her twin sister, Amanda’s image.  Never being popular or fitting in like her sister does at school.  Never being truly loved and accepted by her parents for who she really was.  Despite everything, she truly loved her sister and parents.  Her character was amazing.  Keira never complained about her situation or tried to change who she was.  She just wanted her sister and parent’s love and acceptance.

After the accident, Keira starts changing and becomes stronger.  She develops special abilities and stands up to her parents.   Her image even changes.  Keira then meets Cooper and it’s love at first sight.  She starts dreaming about him and can’t stop thinking about him.  Cooper always acts so strange when he is around Keira and she doesn’t know what to think. Maybe Cooper doesn’t feel the same way she does?

I can’t wait to read the next book in the series.  This book was awesome. I would recommend this series to anyone.  This book was outstanding.  I also love this author.  She has a way of writing with emotion.
