Cave of Terror by Amber Dawn Bell

Cheyenne Wilde was a normal teenage girl until she turned sixteen, and found out that she was a vampire. Now trying to deal with bloodlust, school, a new crush, and intense gymnastics practices every day, Cheyenne is getting a little stressed. And finding out that she's her clica's first Vanator in 500 years doesn't help much either. Cheyenne has all this untapped power, and must learn how to use it to defeat an enemy clica that wants her dead.

Fantasy, as a genre, is supposed to draw you in and make the unbelievable believable. Cave of Terror didn't quite do that for me. There was a lot going on, as Cheyenne and the reader are both completely new to the vampirism, and not a whole lot was explained. Some parts were a little corny, and some of the words the characters were using didn't fit with teenagers today. This book reminded me a lot of Sucks To Be Me by Kimberly Pauley, because the main characters both find out about vampires when they turn sixteen and the some of the characteristics of vampires are similar. Even though the plot could use some work, the book was cute and funny at times. If you're looking for an easy read with vampires and romance, then this book is for you.

6 out of 10.

Release Date: December 2008

Yeah, I thought the same exact thing. It's a little cheesy.
