Review---Sunset (Pact Arcanum #1)

Hey everyone!!!  I LOVED THIS BOOK!! It is such a huge book with so much to say that I am sure I haven't done the book justice with this short review. I could actually come up with pages and pages of stuff to say, but I didnt know for sure if that would be ideal. So I put all my enthusiasm into this review and I hope that, even though its not so big, you guys get the point about how wonderfully awesome this book is.

Sunset by Arshad Ahsanuddin is the first book in the Pact Arcanum series. It is amazing how the author has taken the concept of vampires and turned it into something completely different from the usual vampire books. And when I say "completely different" I mean, not the stereotypical blood-drinking, super-fast, afraid-of-sunlight kind of vampires. Yes, the book, to a certain extent has all of that but also so much more. It is a very well written book!! What I liked most about the book is its hypnotizing, overpowering sense.  The story is so gripping that you cannot but finish the book soon. It was honestly so difficult for me to pry myself apart from the book. Everytime I picked up my e-reader,and started reading,  I could feel myself being sucked into the story. I wasn't aware of anything in my surrounding during these blissful moments of reading.

 The story is set in the future in year 2040, when vampires live among the humans in a hidden society. There are three races in the hidden society- Daywalkers, Nightwalkers and Sentinels. The nightwalkers are typical vampires. The Daywalkers are those who have reclaimed their souls. The Sentinels are soldiers who have been trained to kill vampires. All the three races have been in war against each other for thousands of years with one main motive- world dominance. I loved the action scenes in the book. The descriptions felt so real, almost like they were really there and not just fiction.
Thank You Arshad, so much for sending me the book. I enjoyed it completely!! Can't wait to read the next book. I will most probably cheat and cut through my entire TBR pile and read the 2nd book next.
