The story continues:
"You are the last life I'll take." she said.
"They'll take yours." he spat. "Do you think father will let you get away with this?"
"Crying for Daddy?" she asked mockingly and drove the knife into his chest. She left the knife where his heart should have been and motioned to Liam. "Drink." she said. "Don't let him go to waste. And once you've done with him..." She drew her hand across her throat. She locked the door to the office and left the club. In five minutes, she'd meet Liam by the fire exit. And then, vengeance over and done, she'd have to sit down and face the truth.
Fern isn't a pure blood. She was human first. She's a killer, she's broken ties with the only ones who could protect her and she's committed the greatest crime a vampire can commit, she's broken the commandments: Thou Shall Not Kill Thy Blood and Keep Thy Blood Pure.
If she's caught, eternal hell awaits...
Thanks for the review Jess. I'll be honest, I haven't got the time to write a full-length novel (i'm currently working on one, a TV series and I have a 10page film to do for a media festival) but I turn to this whenever I feel like being a bit melodramatic. You're right - the action is dense, but the reason it seems 'rushed' is because Fern doesn't have a full range of 'human' emotions. She's desensetised to violence, she kills without compunction and she doesn't dwell too deeply over what she's done. Human life isn't really worth much to her, and to be honest, neither is her own immortality. She doesn't love her family, she doesn't even really love Liam, and she's been around for so long that she's a total and utter cynic. She doesn't have much of a personality yet, but I think when she finds her 'real' family and gives birth to her baby and sees Liam under threat, she might discover that she actually does care for something after all, and then we'll see her character grow. Keep reading. It will get better. I promise.
