Bitten by a vampire queen as an infant, triplet Tashya Crosse begins turning into a vampire after her 21st birthday. She moves out of the family home and away from her vampire-slaying sisters to protect her family and find a cure. She gets help in the form of Dmitri Malkovich, a member of a secret order who's been sent to kill her. But he's unable to complete his mission, and together they must work to save Tashya and prevent another vampire queen from taking over their town. Dead Is the New Black (4.5) by Harper Allen is exciting from start to finish. Allen's plot is original, and her characters are compelling.
