The Silver Kiss by Annette Curtis Klause - Zoe is a young girl having to deal with the knowledge that her mother is dying. Simon is a vampire looing for revenge for the murder of his mother three hundred years ago. When their paths cross, Zoe is wary of the handsome stranger, but warms to him when he understands her loneliness and her pain. Can Simon bring himself to ask Zoe for her help on his dangerous quest? Can Zoe has to let down her guard and let him in to see who he truely is? One things for sure, nothing will stay the same.
I really liked this book. I liked the relationship between Zoe and Simon, how they deal with their own individual struggles, and how they both need each other to save them from their loneliness and pain. I love how detailed Simon's history is, and just how disturbing the truth is. This is in no way a happy story, it's really upsetting in places, but there is a resolution in the end. I didn't like how it ended though, I was a little disappointed - I'd rather it had ended differently, but I guess it does make sense for who the characters are. The Silver Kiss wasn't as great as Blood and Chocolate, but it was still a good read. Worth picking up!
