After what happened to Micheal and with Shane's dad, she had made a deal with Amelie. She now has to wear a bracelet around her wrest. It took her friends at the house some time to get the idea that it was Claire's idea and they had no choice but to deal with it.

Amelie had told Claire that she was going to be working with Myrnin. He's a very sick vampire but needs help trying to find a way to save the vampires there from certain death. What Claire does realize that he could kill her at any time. He's very sick and at times doesn't act like he should, more like he's crazy at times. He also forgets things. As the time goes by, she has helped him do what she needed to do to help but still couldn't find a cure for them. Not that she really wanted to in the first place.

Shane ends up getting stabbed and is in the hospital. Micheal tries to proect Claire from herself. Eve's brother shows up and there has been some girls getting murdered on top of everything. Over all the book is a good read and short. Its just now figuring out what's going to happen to Claire next and being that she's just 16, her parents are worried about her.

Well, I'm off to start another book now. Hope you've been enjoying the book reviews and have tried one or a few.
