Lenah is a 600-year-old, vicious, blood thirsty vampire queen. But unlike many vampire characters you may have read, she hates being a vampire and longs to be human again. As Rebecca Maizel’s Infinite Days begins, she is waking up after a ritual performed by her maker and lover, Rhode. He makes a sacrifice to make her human. He leaves behind only a pile of glittering dust. Lenah is now 16 years old again and is a student at a prestigious boarding school. Her time is limited because her dangerous coven of vampires will be hunting her down once they discover she is gone. If they find out she is human, she is as good as dead. Before the ritual, Lenah slept in the ground for 100 years. The world has changed and she is baffled by computers, TVs and the strangeness of modern music.
It is refreshing for a character to want to change from the supernatural to human. Twilight readers will enjoy this change. There is plenty of romance as Lenah becomes involved with Justin. And there are flashbacks of her relationship with Rhode. The richness of the flashbacks to her life in an English castle are what I loved the most. I really enjoyed this one!
