My comments:  I don't even know why I'm reading's pretty awful and all the reasons I disliked Twilight are twofold here.  The tiny little bit of plot that seeps through the repetitiousness of the stereotypical characters is somewhat interesting and the last bits of information given make one wonder wher the story's next (small) twist wil go.  There are seven in this series before the "saga" of Sofia and Derek is concluded....I doubt if I'll be reading much more.

Goodreads synopsis for Book 1:  On the evening of Sofia Claremont's seventeenth birthday, she is sucked into a nightmare from which she cannot wake.
     A quiet evening walk along a beach brings her face to face with a dangerous pale creature that craves much more than her blood.
     She is kidnapped to an island where the sun is eternally forbidden to shine.
An island uncharted by any map and ruled by the most powerful vampire coven on the planet. She wakes here as a slave, a captive in chains.
     Sofia's life takes a thrilling and terrifying turn when she is the one selected out of hundreds of girls to join the harem of Derek Novak, the dark royal Prince.
     Despite his addiction to power and obsessive thirst for her blood, Sofia soon realizes that the safest place on the island is within his quarters, and she must do all within her power to win him over if she is to survive even one more night.
     Will she succeed? ...or is she destined to the same fate that all other girls have met at the hands of the Novaks?
