Dominic Vorchowsky is a normal teenage boy, except he is in the process of being turned into a vampire. He is six feet tall, with dark brown hair, and deep brown eyes. He is in search of his life mate to help him destroy Lynetta, a vampire trying to change him to replace the lover she lost 200 years ago.

Marissa Lakeland is a teenage witch trying to master her skills. She is described as an average looking girl, thinking she is much less attractive than her best friend Kate.

THE VAMPIRE...IN MY DREAMS starts out with Marissa and Kate chasing after a boy whom they think is a vampire. Eventually they get separated because Marissa is much slower than Kate. Dominic appears by Marissa and soon later tells her that she is his life mate. She is the only hope he has to stop the process of becoming a vampire. When Marissa agrees to share her blood with him, he kisses her and she accidentally gets some of his blood. Resulting in that they exchange powers. After learning how to use the new powers, they defeat Lynetta.

This book successfully combines witchcraft and vampires. This book is great because each chapter is written from one character's point-of-view. Dominic and Marissa are both likeable characters and seem to bring out the best in each other. It is very well set in the system of high school. This author reminds me of Lynsay Sands and the way she describes the characters. (Except for the mind reading aspect.) It is obvious that it is a young adult book, in some places it seemed rushed and scenes could be a bit longer or with more detail. It is understandable because young adults might not be interested in longer scenes. With that being said, it was an enjoyable book. I will check out others by this author.

Great book, Terri! Hopefully, this will become a series and we will see more of Dominic, Marissa, and Kate! Her website is:
