This is Sophia’s story, a story of a girl who finds herself, love and everlasting friendship. The excitement of this story wraps mortals, vampires, witches, and shape shifters all into a romantic tale of young love, friendship, the meaning of family. The story of a girl who tries to finds herself when she thought it was all lost.  
My Review 
I first met Charlotte Blackwell when she came on my show to talk about her book. I was immediately intrigued by not only her concept but also by her warm and giving personality. A few months later I was signed by World Castle Publishing. I had no idea she was already one of their writers. Without hesitation, Charlotte took me under her wing and introduced me to the entire group of World Castle Publishing writers. With her help, I was able to learn a lot of the publishing business and what needed to be done. Little did I know she was going to become one of my closest friends. It gives me great pleasure to talk about her series. 
Immortal Embrace is about a young girl who I completely was able to relate to. As a teenager I remember wanting to be normal or fit in. The thing Charlotte shows in this book is that it's ok to be yourself. Her character Sopia goes through a lot to realize accepting yourself is always the best way. In this book, Charlotte has written about a heart warming family full of love for one another. One thing that brings you into the story is the language she uses in the dialogue. Written in first person, she carries you into the mind of teens through the dialogue, the rhythm of the story and movement of the characters. Charlotte adds another layer to the story through her characters who are witches. The whole of the story is one that will sweep you away into great imagery, good story telling and characters that will capture your heart. I give this book a 5 star rating. 

Forbidden Embrace 

Just when Sophia Pierce thinks her eternal life will be happy and peaceful, something else happens to turn it upside down. With rogue vampires approaching the town she has learned to call home, the Pierce family must prepare for battle. With some magickal help will they be able to save Wenham? Even more trouble arises when Danika, the newest vampire of the family decides this might not be the right place for her. The Pierce family has already lost one love, Caspian, when he felt he was no longer worthy of their family name. Will Danika follow his footsteps and will he be able to save her from a fate far worse than his own?

  My Review 
Sopia is finally at peace with her life. Enter Danika, her new sister. Once again Charlotte shares a world that sweeps you away and carries you into another place where just about anything is possible. All I can say is once again I loved the characters. This story is all about survival and learning how to cope with your own personal gifts. Though most of us don't wake up "Embraced" or turned into vampires, we do have to deal with making the best of who and what we are. What we do often have to deal with are those new people who come into our lives. In this book, Sopia has little to no trust when it comes to her new sibling, Danika. Mistakes are more than just costly in the world Charlotte has created, the are life and death. So the thought of putting a new sibling in Sopia's world adds a new depth to the characters and what they are all about. The romance from Immortal Embrace between Nate and Sopia grows in this book. The sweet tenderness of it all took me back to a time when romance was just that, romantic. Charlotte's use of the English language will take you away into a world filled with vampires, witches and angels. The magic of it all was a lot of fun to read!! 

The entire series is a must read for YA fans and it's something you will always remember.
