This is one of those books that you wanted to be better. The heroine is a poc, she is not in a love triangle, and she is pretty determined. The vampires are bloodthirsty, and the alternate American states and the vampire work.
The thing is when Selah discovers her power - her acceptable of the strange thing occurs in less than a finger snap. She becomes a somewhat different person. It isn't a smooth transition and is somewhat jarring.
Yet, the book is fun.
