The Forests of the Night by Amelia Atwater-Rhodes

By
In The Forests Of The Night is not only a line from a famous poem, but also the title of an amazing novel by Amelia Atwater-Rhodes, who had it published when she was only 14.

Risika, the main character, is a vampire. She remembers the time when her name was “Rachel” and believed in God, and her brother. After an unfortunate turn of events, she is thrust into a world of darkness, and everything she once knew was gone. But now, she has new problem. The problem's name is Aubrey. He's another vampire who is quite possibly her rival and when things get pushed too far, Risika exacts revenge.

I would say that this is the kind of book that, once you open it, you automatically have to find a nice place to sit and when your mom yells at you to come get dinner you yell back, “MOM! I'M READING! Just. Wait. A SECOND!” Once you're in, you can't leave until it's over. And then, you want more.
