Publisher Comments:

She longs to be like everybody else.  But her history is written in blood...

Lenah Beaudonte is in many ways your average sixteen-year-old: the “new girl,” she struggles to fit in enough to survive at school, and stand out enough to catch the eye of the golden-boy captain of the lacrosse team.  But her challenges are beyond what anyone could have expected.  Lenah just happens to be a recovering five-hundred-year-old vampire turned human…

Shes just awakened from a century-long hibernation and each passing hour hears another tick of the time-bomb, counting down to the moment when her abandoned vampire coven will open the crypt where she should be sleeping, and find her gone. As her borrowed days slip by, Lenah resolves to live her newfound life as fully as the passing moments allow. But, to do so, she must first answer the ominous questions at hand:  Can an ex-vampire survive in a time and place so alien to her?  What can Lenah do to protect her new friends from the bloodthirsty menace about to descend upon them?  And how is she ever going to pass her biology midterm?

Review:

"Maizel's dark and dreamy debut reverses the vampire trend with a heroine whose heart's desire is to regain her humanity and abandon her evil past. After more than 500 years as the queen of her English coven, perpetual 15-year-old Lenah finally has her chance to become human again when her vampire sire sacrifices himself for the necessary ritual. Determined to live her new days to the fullest before her coven finds and kills her for her betrayal, Lenah explores American teenage life at a boarding school in Massachusetts with best friend Tony and boyfriend Justin. Eventually discovered, abducted, and remade as a vampire, Lenah retains her soul and becomes something entirely new--a compassionate vampire with unexpected powers who can bridge the worlds. She returns to school and her friends, but the coven isn't far behind, and they aren't interested in mercy. Maizel's lustrous style is occasionally uneven, but the captivating characters and intriguing story easily overcome the slight flaws. Vampire fans or not, readers will find a lot to enjoy in this exploration of the power of intent, desire, love, and sacrifice. Ages 12 — up. (Aug.)" Publishers Weekly (Copyright PWyxz LLC)

Synopsis:

"Throughout all my histories, I found no one I loved more than you...no one."

Those were some of Rhode's last words to me. The last time he would pronounce his love. The last time I would see his face.

It was the first time in 592 years I could take a breath. Lay in the sun. Taste.

Rhode sacrificed himself so I, Lenah Beaudonte, could be human again. So I could stop the blood lust.

I never expected to fall in love with someone else that wasn't Rhode.

But Justin was...daring. Exciting. More beautiful than I could dream.

I never expected to be sixteen again...then again, I never expected my past to come back and haunt me...

Shelly Burns, July 13, 2010 (view all comments by Shelly Burns)
When I finished this book, I tweeted something like this; "Just finished Infinite Days. All I can say is WOW!!" And now, a week later, as I write this review, I am still in awe and wish the 2nd book were coming out next month. But, it's not. This book releases then, and, if you're a fan of books about vampires, then rush out and get it; you won't regret it!

There are not many debut books that grab me and won't let me go, but this was one of them! I picked it up on the afternoon of one day, and finished it the afternoon of the next. As soon as I did, I handed it to my favorite teenage reader and said, "I just finished this...you have to read it." So, she started it that night.

Rebecca Maizel does such a great job with this one! What author has taken a new spin on vampires lately? Make the vampire human? That's one we've never heard of, but she does it so wonderfully because I was intrigued by the idea the minute I started reading.

Lenah has the chance that vampires don't usually get, being human again, and she falls in love with it. Not only does she fall in love with being human, she falls in love which is something she thought she'd never do. My favorite part of Lenah being human is her pure innocence about everything. She'd never known what things felt like, tasted like, didn't know about 21st century things like Lacrosse, but it didn't take her long to learn. It is so refreshing to read her naivety and innocence about every little thing. It adds humor to the story.

Everyone thinks there's something different about her, Lenah, the new girl on campus, but she just wants to fit in. She's befriended and is soon learning about her new world, finding love, and "feeling" a kiss for the first time. That is until the bad news...the coven will hunt for their queen. Will Lenah be able to save all that she has come to know and love, or will she lose it all again?

Ms. Maizel has crafted a dark, romantic story that will stay with you long after you close the cover and put the book down. It's unlike any other vampire story you've read in this genre! I fell in love with Lenah, was sad, but applauded Rhode, felt indifference towards Vicken, and was scared for Justin. Very touching, very emotional, very good!!!
