In the Forests of the Night
By Amelia Atwater-Rhodes
Risika is a hunter…a predator…a vampire. But she wasn’t always a vampire. More than 300 years ago, she was a human girl named Rachel who had a loving family. In alternating chapters between the past and the present, we find out just how Rachel was turned, against her will, into the fierce vampire Risika. Even though Risika is a cold and calculating predator, she does still hold onto one burning human emotion: the passion for revenge. Eventually she does get to inflict her revenge…against whom? how? why? and where?
