Jae is a Korean student who came to Europe to study art. Things aren't going her way, but she's determined to make it.
One night, her friend Melissa brings a drunk guy to her apartment and asks if he can stay there for the night. Jae
doesn't like it, but agrees. That night she has a dream that the drunk guy drinks her blood...which, of course, turns
out NOT to be a dream. Jae is surprisingly unafraid of the vampire, Michael, and starts to paint his portrait. The two
strike an unusual deal: if Jae allows the vampire to feed on her, he will pose for her. His beauty and alluring
preternatural energy could be exactly what Jae needs to finally succeed as a painter.
Pretty good vampire drama, I'll admit that. The story can get confusing at times and may require a re-reading, and you may find yourself changing your opinion of the characters from one chapter to the next. The art took a bit of getting used to but it ultimately grew on me and now I find it quite beautiful even though I still think there's something off about Michael. As for the ending, let's just say it goes either way and you can interpret it as you wish, which I found appropriate given the story.
