        Do you believe in vampires? 

    I sure didn’t. Not until I found out on my 16th birthday I’m anything but human. And to add the cherry on the freak sundae called my life, I’m the first Vânător born in over 500 years. You see, I’m destined to be a hunter of evil. That’s right; I’m a real life Buffy.

     

    To make matters worse, I’m falling for Ryan—this new guy at school. I never thought I’d be this love struck, hair tossing, dorky teenager. It’s enough to make me want to hurl.

     

    And on top of all this, I have an entity stalking me that wants to use my rare blood for his own evil deeds, a girl at school who lives to make my life miserable, and a gymnastics coach who is determined to see I make it to Nationals.

       Yep, things are really looking up for me. Welcome to the never boring, anything but normal, you-never-know-   what’s-going-to-happen life of Cheyenne Wilde.”

     I’m not usually one to accept eBooks because I still don’t have an eReader, but am I ever happy that I read this book! Cave Of Terror was just flat-out a great read. Cheyenne is a fun, spunky teenager with a pretty good head on her shoulders, who is thrown into a major life-altering situation. The plot flows, the characters are believable and funny, and there’s danger, romance and paranormal elements. This all makes for a great mix in my books!

    I really enjoyed the relationships in this book. Cheyenne’s best friend Mandy is a blast! Their witty banter makes for great reading. I was totally caught up in this story and found it to be a “page flipper”, because I had a hard time putting it down once I started reading.

    I’m also happy to say that this book is the first in the Vanator Diaries Series by Amber Dawn Bell and the next book, A Ghostly Affair will be out sometime in 2009. I think that this series holds a lot of promise and I highly recommend it for fans of Young Adult Paranormal Fiction.

    ( From Website ) 

    ” Sex as a weapon? That was something undercover agent Callie Whitten never thought she’d use, until Iollan Drake crossed her path. A brooding outlaw with smoky hair and copper eyes, his exotic accent and heated touch promise a lot of pleasure.

    Dangerous secrets loom as Callie discovers that her not-so-typical investigation into a sex trafficking ring has some perilous twists. One of the Bureau’s most wanted, Drake’s a man with a dark secret—something that could get them both killed once Callie stumbles onto the truth. A truth that not only puts her life in jeopardy but also threatens the security of the free world…

    The A51-ASD, a top-secret division of the Bureau, has proof of aliens among the civilian population. Iollan Drake is a ‘living’ vampire, part of a subculture of humans who have merged with an alien species called the Niviane Idesha. Restructured through a genetic mutation, the vampires are gifted with enhanced speed, incredible stamina and the ability to shift energy, and the government has become increasingly terrified of their growing legion. Those hosting the alien symbiont are treated as outcasts, subjected to terrifying tests and put into quarantine.

    When Drake breaks the shell of secrecy around his people and tells Callie about his secret life, her world is spun terrifyingly sideways: She discovers a nefarious plan involving the creations of yet a third species: alien-human hybrids with all the strengths of the aliens and none of their weaknesses. Events turn more harrowing when Callie discovers she may be pregnant. As one of the few sires able to reproduce, Iollan’s life is in danger, and Callie is in a fight for her own life, and that of her unborn child.

    Forced to rely on each other to stay alive, neither Callie nor Drake can resist the passion sizzling between them. When Drake is captured and almost killed, Callie becomes a rogue warrior bent on protecting her new lover—seeking her revenge on the agency that betrayed them both.”
