Created by the First Born, The Night Touched created the bloodlines from which all modern day vampires descended. Different because of their incredible powers and advantages in the human world, The Night Touched were a special kind of vampire. However, they were believed to have died out centuries ago, and had been reduced to little more than whispers in the vampire world.
Harper Kemp was the only modern Night Touched in existence. The reasons behind her creation were unknown and she had been abandoned during her change. Eventually she was found by Lily and Jason and taught how to handle what she had become. She learned how to blend in with the human world and even made herself in to quite the socialite of the New York City elite scene.
After a plea for help in her dreams and the dangers of a forbidden love, Harper is sent down a path to discovery; not only is she not alone, she’s about to face her worst nightmare – a devastatingly handsome slayer named Silas with a finger on her non existent pulse.
I finished reading the book the first day since I got it. I didn’t find it difficult to read because it grabbed me from the very first pages.
Harper is a very interesting character , but I would have rather knew more details about her turning into a Night Touched, how Lily and Jason were found and how they got in “their family” . I see her just like my own child, and the relationship between the three of them exceeds the definition of friendship.
The whole action gets complicated when Harper receives visions from another Night Touched, called Celine, whom was kidnapped and asked him for help. Harper learns about Celine, and she has to rescue her from The Slayers. Along the way, Harper falls in love for Sailas and she has to make some pretty difficult decisions about it. Both of them have some secrets and this hinders their relationship.
I get very restrained when it comes to vampire book. I believe it is because I’ve met them in so many books, but when I had the chance to read this book, I found myself very impressed by the fact that Maegan Provan managed to bring something new for this type of characters.Night Touched were created by the First Born (the first vampire) to create the bloodlines from which all modern day vampires come from. Each Night Touched has a mark that appears in a different place on their body. Celine’s appears on her wrist. Harper’s appears on her chest above her heart. Their marks glow different colors which gives insight to what kind of person they were before they died.
I think it’s a great book and I recommend it to everyone, not just to vampire book fans. I was very impressed by the story and can’t wait to read the sequel.

Excerpt #3 (from Chapter 3)
As the song came to an end, he spun me out and smiled. I felt like I was floating. As the next song started, he led me out into the hallway and towards the stairwell. I giggled to myself and followed as we sprinted down the long hall. He opened the door for me and I walked in.
He pushed me back against the wall and kissed me passionately. His strong hands held me and he stood with his body pressed against mine. I kissed back against his soft lips and pushed myself to him. My bun had worked itself loose and my long brown hair cascaded around my shoulders He ran his fingers through it as I resisted the urge to bite his lip. He grunted a little and it was so amazingly sexy. I sighed and tried to remember how to make it look like I was panting.
Suddenly I felt that old familiar tingle in my chest. Fuck! Not now. Please not right now. I did everything I could to make sure that he wouldn’t be able to see my mark glowing through my dress. Before it could even become that big of an issue, his phone rang.
“Hello?” He pulled back and answered, mouthing to me that it was his work. “Really? Okay, I’m on my way.” He hung up and shoved his phone into his pocket.
“Harper, I am so so sorry, but I have to go. I promise I will make it up to you.” He threw the door open and rushed out of the stair well.
“That’s okay, I was about to eat you anyway.” I said to myself leaning back against the wall and looking at the ground.
After about a minute the door opened and I looked up, hoping that it was Silas coming back to kiss me like that again. Jason stuck his head in and looked around before noticing me in the corner.
“Come on, it’s time to go.” He looked at me, confused. Then, like a light bulb going off, his eyebrows raised and a sly smile appeared on his face “What were you doing in the stairwell?”
“Practicing great self-restraint” I took my wrap from him and put it around my shoulders.
