She is suddenly awake.  She is alone and does not know where she is is.  She is vampire and has no memory or how or why.  As she struggles with the insatiable Thirst through the night time streets of Seattle, she undertakes the quest to piece together that lost night and finds herself on a journey centuries into the past to understand strength, friendship, and destiny.

I am going to admit something here that might put my love of vampire novels to shame, however, this novel read how I wish an Anne Rice novel would read.

When you think of newly awakened vampires, I’m sure ravenous and uncontrollable beast springs to mind but not for this new vampire. Her ability to resist is strong.

Her maker leaves her to fend for herself at first, which was an interesting turn of events. She does make some hiccups along the way but in the end gains life long friends for it.

You never find out her true name as she is given a new name when she finally meets her master. He calls her Titian. He prompts her to find herself and the answers to his journey as well.

It is an interesting tale of an unknown, newly awakened vampire and those she meets along the way.
