Summary: (from goodreads) After witnessing the murder of one of her dearest friends, Khalida finds herself caught between doing what she knows is right and letting go of her past. With the help of the Network, an organization created to keep her secrets buried, Khalida will battle enemies as old as time. But will the secrets of her past destroy everything she knows and loves? Soon, another friend is facing his death, and she will have to save him. Others will follow, and she will have to make the hardest decision of her life. There is only one way to save her friends from this enemy. As she races against time, Khalida will learn that sometimes your past comes back to haunt you, even when you are a vampire.

This is the 1st book of a trilogy and it is a good start. This is not a typical vampire book, the main character is a very old (5000 years) vampire locked in a body of a very young (19 years) girl.  She is  sensitive, caring and very emotional for her human friends and followers and this, even being very strong, put her in very dangerous situation. In order to adapt to the new world she created a network of very loyal people, that help her stay under the radar from her enemies. The secret that she has carried for years, comes back to haunt her creating a very explosive and sensitive situation for herself and all her close people.  It is a fast read but it doesn’t feel rushed, it keeps you on the edge to the end.  This book can be the door opener for other series expanding from a couple of interesting characters in the story.  I will definitely be reading the next  chapter in the series.
