Booklist Review: "Set in the same alternate world as Tantalize (2007), this companion novel is a witty, dark love story of death and redemption. Miranda dreams of one day being a star, but she's already captured the heart of one fan: her lifelong guardian angel Zachary. When he sees her death approach, he desperately breaks the rules to prevent it, an act that dooms both of their souls: Zachary is cast out of Heaven, and Miranda lives long enough to be made a vampire. A year later, Miranda has settled into her wicked life as the glamorous daughter of the vampire king, and Zachary has been sent to their estate on a mission that may earn back his wings. Forced to confront the monster Miranda has become, Zachary is determined to save her soul and redeem them both. Smith's take on aristocratic vampire society is a sometimes humorous, sometimes horrible mix of the niceties of high society and the blase violence of monsters, while angels appear to be a largely bureaucratic organization. Miranda and Zachary are complex, sympathetic characters, and their hopeful ending is well earned.--Hutley, Krista Copyright 2009 Booklist"

Publisher's Weekly Review: "Smith's latest revisits the dark alternate world of Tantalize (2007) with a new set of characters. Despite the efforts of Zachary, her guardian angel, Dallas teenager Miranda joins the ranks of the undead as an "eternal" (vampire), courtesy of the current Dracula, their aristocratic ruler. A year passes, and as Dracula's pursuit of power begins to affect his sanity, Miranda struggles to acclimate to her new regal life in Dracula's castle (in Chicago). Meanwhile, Zachary has been cast from heaven for revealing his angelic nature while trying to save Miranda, so he poses as a human-and Miranda's personal assistant-trying to save her. Smith balances the story's bloody details with frequent touches of humor (when Zachary is taken aback by Miranda's enormous SUV, she replies, "We're eternals.... We are evil. We are not fuel efficient"). The confessional style, alternating between Miranda and Zachary's points of view, is intriguing as a diary-readers should be hooked by this fully formed world, up through the action-packed finale.
