The Eternal Gift by Candy Crum

The Eternal Gift: The Eternal Series by Candy Crum
Blurb
A young girl (Kailah) discovers that she is from a lost and forgotten powerful Immortal blood line after she meets a strange new physician at work. She begins to have visions and see spirits and has trouble controlling bad things from happening when she is angry. Along the way she discovers the terrible truth about who she is and the incredible power that is locked away deep inside her. Her Immortal ancestors want to use her to destroy the vampire race. Vampires want to use her power to destroy her Immortal ancestors. But hiding in the shadows are those who have been watching her since she was born. They want to help Kailah discover who she is and help her learn to use her abilities. They simply want for her to make the right decision before it's too late. Unfortunately for them time is not on their side and the Rogue Vampires have plans for Kailah no one could have imagined.
My review.
Kailah's story is one of a girl learning who she is and has to deal not only with growing up, real fast but also with loss, heartache and responsibility beyond her years.  Her powers, as she becomes aware of them is impressive and her understanding of what is happening is limited.
Even in these circumstances she grows into her role real fast and with a strength that you want to see in your main protagonist. 
The other characters, especially the evil one's is well fleshed out and their evil apparent.  Their motivation is explored but it does nothing to make them less evil and thus the reader is not left in an emotional ambivalent state.
The story is well told and progresses at a pace that keeps you turning the pages.  The end is a real cliff hanger.  And I am sure that most paranormal romance lovers will adore this book
A 4 * read and one I would recommend to all lovers of this genre.
