Provided By:
Luella, fierce, strong vampire,
Falls for a pretty human catch
Sent on her fiancé's desire
To celebrate they are engaged.
This unexpected turnabout
Is doomed to come to a dead end:
Her human sweetheart's dead to shroud;
Her fiancé's avenged for that;
And she is punished for blood treason,
Banished into a mortal child,
Whose human body is a prison
For all her powers to bind.
Her memories obliterated,
She is to find her love at last
Who proves to be too much related
To the misfortunes from her past.

My Review: 
Ordeal is a book written in poetry, and is the story of a forbidden love. Written by Tatyana Varenko it's an intriguing book. And is the story of Luella/Alice and Derek two people that weren't supposed to fall in love in the first place.

Luella is an ancient vampire, now reborn into a human girls body named Alice. Alice has none of her old memories until she meets Derek, a mysterious stranger that intrigues her. And then Luella's memories begin to come to Alice in the form of dreams, and the story starts to get more involved. Derek, a dark handsome young man, is however one of the main points in the story, and is the cause of Alice's past misfortunes.

The Story of Ordeal continues and is a very creative spin, on the sometimes over written vampire world. Tatyana does a great job with the way she writes, and I adore how the book is written in the form of poetry verses. Some others have compared Ordeal as a mix between Shakespeare and Edgar Allen Poe. I don't want to do that, because unlike those two famous writers, Tatyana's writing is completely different and in a separate category (not in a bad way though). Ordeal is a great love story, and even if you don't like reading poetry you should still pick Ordeal up.

About the Author:
This time my birth as human being
Took place in 1982,
In June, when weather was appealing
And sparkling with the morning dew.

As I grew up, too shy by nature,
My friends were Pushkin, Dante, Wilde
Who wrote of love and of adventure -
I dreamt of the vampire kind.

As time went by, I took to versing
When I got hardly over ten,
And life was constantly coercing
Me to compose and use my pen.

The Foreign Languages Department
I joined in 1999
Served as a very good incitement
For my verse writing to refine.

Then the first sketches were laid out,
When I was drawing to 18,
Ordeal began to come about
To lighten up my dull routine.
