In SAVED (Book #1 of the Shadow Vampire Series) Keira and Amanda, who are twins, suddenly move with their family to a new town, Everstock and start their senior year at a new high school. But though they are identical twins, the girls have different fates. Amanda, beautiful charming, popular is always sought out by everyone and has many girlfriends and boyfriends. Keira, who has always lived in Amanda's shadow is smaller, awkward and different. The kids shy away from her. Even her mother, who is close to Amanda, doesn't know what to make of her other daughter. Keira turns to books for solace and to find out about other worlds.

As before Amanda makes friends easily at the new school and quickly finds a boyfriend, while Keira is left lonely, an outsider. But very quickly, it is clear that something strange is going on in Everstock. The town and school are very divided. The popular rich kids act as if they own the school and have nothing to do with the other other kids, who are poorer and live in a different part of town. They look down on all of them. Not only are the kids muchmeaner here, but an unknown infection has gripped the town, with more and more people going to the hospital. Something here is terrible wrong.

However, things change suddenly during a terrible car accident as Keira drives Amanda to a party. Not only are Keira and Amanda's lives changed forever, but anentirely new dimension of life opens to Keira. She meets a young man she loves tremendously, receives new and mysterious powers and is able to grow in ways that no one can possibly understand.

In Keira's mysterious and fantastic journey, we see the battle of good against evil and the unfolding of what is truly possible when we can rise above everything we once thought we were.
