Infinite Days by Rebecca Maizel a vampire romance novel, not just any old vampire romance novel. The 600 year old British vampire queen Lenah Beaudonte decides she has had enough of being immortal. She wants to feel her heart beat, the sun on her skin, and to have her lungs fill with air. Lenah, who gets transformed back into human by the love of her life, her created named Rhode. But being human comes with a price tag, it would give her coven a shock and her love would be dead for good. In becoming a human she is going to have to attend a boarding school, learn new technology and fit in with a whole new society. While her coven is unaware that she will be human again her other “love” won’t be happy. Besides that fact that she is 600 years old she looks like the age she was when she was turned. Which is 16.
Maizel’s novel infinite days is a book you’ve never read before. She put a whole different meaning to a “vampire novel”. The story line is fantastic and has a plot twist you would never suspect to happen. Your probably thinking it doesn’t sound much like a romance, but believe me Lenah has a dead boyfriend, a lover from her coven, and a crush on the most popular guy in school, not mention a secret admirer. I’m not going to lie, you will be disappointed when the book ends, it’s so intense and you just don’t want it to ever end.

Creative Response: A poem from a website, the author is anonymous.
Hind sight is such a funny thing
So true that you never know
What you go until its gone
The things that were so
Annoying and irritating
Overwhelmed all that was good
Nothing left but sad memories of
What was, what is, what could
Have been what we will never be
Love has fed upon our souls
To me this poem connects to the main character Lenah and her former lover Rhode. In Infinite Days Rhode has made a lot of tough decisions in his life in order for Lenah to be happy. Not all memories she has of him are the best.
