I really enjoyed reading The Amarant by Tricia Barr. I found this young adult novel different than the other vampire based novels. The way the characters are introduced and described by Tricia Barr is simply amazing. The story is about a teenage girl named Crimson Wilkinson who is in love with a collection of vampire books she has read. Crimson is more in love with the main character Nicholae Albaric. She decides to type his name in the search engine of a people finder program after she falls bored while searching for her father. What she does not expect to find is a match, Nicholae Albaric is real. This starts many twists and turns with the story. I found my self really interested in this fictional vampire. All the clues made you really wonder how this love story will end. I was very surprised with the ending and I loved it! I really find that Barr took a popular young adult book theme and made it her own. I found this a really good read. ***I received this book free in exchange for my honest and unbiased review.***

After some investigation, she becomes a very active part in the very true vampire stories the world thought were fiction and falls in love with their author, Nicholae Albaric, the sweetly lonely vampire celebrity. But her happiness is short-lived as she discovers she has a rare gene that makes the carrier extremely powerful if turned into a vampire, and she is targeted as the vampire community’s number-one most-wanted, some who want to kill her before she becomes a threat, and others who want to use her powers to their own ends.
