Infinite Days by Rebecca Maizel
Lenah Beaudonte is, in many ways, your average teen: the new girl at Wickham Boarding School, she struggles to fit in enough to survive and stand out enough to catch the eye of the golden-boy lacrosse captain. But Lenah also just happens to be a recovering five-hundred-year-old vampire queen. After centuries of terrorizing Europe, Lenah is able to realize the dream all vampires have -- to be human again. After performing a dangerous ritual to restore her humanity, Lenah entered a century-long hibernation, leaving behind the wicked coven she ruled over and the eternal love who has helped grant her deep-seated wish.
Until, that is, Lenah draws her first natural breath in centuries at Wickham and rediscovers a human life that bears little resemblance to the one she had known. As if suddenly becoming a teenager weren’t stressful enough, each passing hour brings Lenah closer to the moment when her abandoned coven will open the crypt where she should be sleeping and find her gone. As her borrowed days slip by, Lenah resolves to live her newfound life as fully as she can. But, to do so, she must answer ominous questions: Can an ex-vampire survive in an alien time and place? What can Lenah do to protect her new friends from the bloodthirsty menace about to descend upon them? And how is she ever going to pass her biology midterm?
Freakingly Awesome!!! It's beyond words, I can't quite explain the excitement and joy and contentment upon reading Infinite Days. It's just so wonderful! It's not your typical vampire book. A different twist yes and created excellently! Rebecca Maizel delivers us a new world of vampire that goes beyond our expectations. You're going to love Lenah because of her intentions. You're sure going to love Justin because of his love for Lenah. And who could ever forget Tony??? He may not be conventionally a good looking guy but his character will shine thru the book. Rhode and Vicken? Aaaaahhhh! such mysterious and gorgeous guys! I LOVE IT!!! I wished Stolen Nights is already available...
