Luella, fierce, strong vampire,
Falls for a pretty human catch
Sent on her fiance’s desire
To celebrate they are engaged.
This unexpected turnabout
Is doomed to come to a dead end:
Her human sweetheart’s dead to shroud;
Her fiance’s avenged for that;

And she is punished for blood treason,
Banished into a mortal child,
Whose human body is a prison
For all her powers to bind.

Her memories obliterated,
She is to find her love at last
Who proves to be too much related
To the misfortunes from her past.

Still need a bit of a break down to help you understand what the heck this book is about? Don’t worry you aren’t alone! I will be glad to offer you a glimpse of understanding.

Ordeal is unique because although it is considered a book, it’s written as a lyrical poem.

Ordeal is a story of a girl named Allison. The story opens with Allison dreaming of the birth of a child and waking up feeling as if it was more a memory than a dream. Allison goes on a hiking trip one day and ends up falling into a river because she’s day dreaming. Her savior comes in the form of a man who disappears just as suddenly as he saves her. Allison then starts dreaming of this mysterious man. She starts seeing him everywhere. She feels as if she already knows this man, as if they belong together. The years pass and Allison continues to dream of the man but never sees him again.
