Book Description

3 Sep 2010
For 500 years Lenah Beaudonte has been a vampire. 500 years of seduction, blood and destruction. But she is sickened by her dark powers – and longs to feel the sun on her skin, grass under her bare feet, and share the breath of a human kiss. She wants to be mortal again. But is she really capable of being human, after her long years of darkness? Waking up as a sixteen-year-old girl brings Lenah many things – the life she has missed, taste, touch, love. But a vampire soul is not easily shed. And her coven – the four vampires she led in decadence and thrilling destruction – want their queen back . . .

Review

"Infinite Days is a wonderfully sexy, dark novel full of lush prose. Rebecca Maizel is a marvel, writing more than just a story, she creates myth with every page." - Carrie Jones, author of NYT bestselling series, NEED


"Once the most feared vampire in the world, Lenah Beaudonte wants what all vampires eventually want: to be human and feel, love and even cry again. After an elaborate ritual that involves the death of her soul mate for the last 592 years and a 100-year secret hibernation at her English countryside estate, Lenah awakens at an elite New England boarding school, returned to her former 16-year-old human self. As she adjusts to the new century (almost too quickly, "chatting up" friends in mere days), tries to fit in with her peers and experiences her first human love with gorgeous ""and ""intelligent Justin and guilt for her past ruthless killings, flashbacks across the centuries reveal Lenah's former life as a vampire, how she formed the coven she rules and why she must prepare to battle its members once they discover her disappearance. In this new series starter, strong, brave, powerful Lenah sheds the wannabe image, capturing readers instead with her complex yet fascinating history and visceral, at times sensual, narration." - "Kirkus"

"Maizel has written a gripping debut novel that wraps a historical story into a modern, paranormal tale. Lenah is a multilayered woman who understands the test of time, yet experiences life as if just born. A new series sure to appeal to many -- young and old. Breathtaking!" - "Romantic Times" Book Reviews (Top Pick)

"Maizel's dark and dreamy debut reverses the vampire trend with a heroine whose heart's desire is to regain her humanity and abandon her evil past. After more than 500 years as the queen of her English coven, perpetual 15-year-old Lenah finally has her chance to become human again when her vampire sire sacrifices himself for the necessary ritual. Determined to live her new days to the fullest be --This text refers to the Paperback edition.

2.0 out of 5 stars Daft as a brush 22 Oct 2013
By Mrs. K. A. Wheatley TOP 500 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:Paperback
I confess already to not being a huge fan of the teenage vampire genre. Twilight, for example, makes me want to stick my head in a blender. I was loaned this book by a fan of the genre - but I can't say it's changed my feelings about this type of book much.

Lenah Beaudonte wakes up to find that she is a sixteen year old human, after having spent 400 years as a ruthless vampire queen and 100 years in hibernation. Her maker sacrifices his own existence to give her life, and she finds herself at a private American boarding school, living the life of a privileged teenager. The coven she has left behind is not entirely happy with this, and sets out to rectify the loss of their queen one way or another.

Firstly, Lenah is apparently English, but the English usage in the book is not right, and really grated on me. I was glad that the school turned out to be in America, as it meant there was only a handful of times when I found myself shouting 'Argh! But we don't use that word/term.'

Secondly, the transition by Lenah from a 500 year old dominant matriarch killing machine into a sixteen year old American girl is handled fairly clonkily and hugely unconvincingly. Every time it began to get interesting the author diverts us to some other plot strand that leaves the detail hanging, and then just skips huge chunks of assimilation material that would have made the book much more interesting for me, anyway.

Thirdly, I was rather disappointed that after longing to be a human again for so many centuries and wanting to experience 'life' with a capital 'L', Lenah floats around campus hanging out with a bunch of high school jocks and doing the odd bungee jump for kicks. Her love story with Justin was handled much too quickly to be fulfilling as a story line, despite the fact that it is supposed to shape Lenah's existence, and all in all I just found myself wondering why she would want to squander the life she has been given at such a high price.

3.0 out of 5 stars Infinite Days 24 Sep 2010
Format:Hardcover
The whole idea behind the story was a very interesting one and something I had never heard about before, which is what drew me to this book. In no other book have I heard about vampires being able to become human again so I was really excited to learn how this was done. It was good to see that not every vampire could do this and that it was extremely dangerous to try to perform the ritual. When Lenah becomes human again, she is a teenage girl who has been out of society for a very long time. There are some funny moments when it comes to Lenah figuring out new technology and what else is new in the world. I imagine it would have been very confusing for her, waking up and not having any idea about what is happening in the world. Not only that, but Lenah had never been to a modern day high school before so this was going to take a lot of getting used to.

Another thing that I liked about the vampires in this story was the fact that there was no good and bad side. All vampires are bad in this case and Lenah's past is proof of that. The reasons behind the evilness were well explained and I thought they were very believable. These vampires lose everything about their human selves once they are turned so there is no humanity or soul to keep them away from being truly bad.

I really liked the fact that I got to learn about Lenah's time with her coven and how she met Rhode and Vicken. These parts of the story were really interesting and gave me the chance to find out who Lenah really is, or was in this case. I love to know at least a little bit of history behind a character so this really worked for me. Lenah's coven were made out to be extremely dangerous but when the time came to meet them, it was all over far too quickly and I didn't believe they were that powerful after all.

4.0 out of 5 stars Original Vampire Novel 14 Jun 2013
Format:Paperback
Originally posted on [...]! Visit for more reviews!

I didn't look a day over sixteen, yet - if someone had calculated - on that particular day I'd officially turned 592.....
Straightaway Rebecca Maizel's 'Infinite Days' seductively grabs the reader pulling them into a story where obviously the main feature is vampires. However what I really enjoyed about this novel is that Maizel never tries to portray the main character Lenah as a good vampire. She's not. And that's the whole point. Lenah was one of the most bloodthirsty, one of the eldest, vampires in vampire history. However she changed. Back into a human. I really liked Maizel's subtle suggestion that humans are better than vampires. Or at least have the potential to be. Basically it was so nice to read a novel where being a vampire isn't romanticised and the whole plot doesn't revolve around how these particular vampires are better than others (Ahem Twilight). Although the main story does follow Lenah's 'transformation' it was more about Lenah getting back to her human roots and really 'rehabilitating' herself as a human girl. However Maizel never lets Lenah forget her past, things don't magically change, Lenah doesn't magically forget the thousands of people she's killed. She can't shed that just because she's become a human.

However just so I don't shoot myself in the foot if you do come to read the novel. Maizel does have vampires that are nicer, well nicer is the wrong word - more humane springs to mind, than the average vampire. But these characteristics only tend to show when these vampires are interacting with Lenah as a human. Other humans are still definitely on the menu.

Lenah
Ever the typical female heroine, main character Lenah is strong, confident and determined.
