PROLOGUE

My name is Ethan Dimitri Ivashkov. I am your average 18 year old guy. Maybe average isn't the right description of me. I've always known I was different, not because I was born into privilege, or that my grandfather is king.

But, I was different from everyone else. No, it's not as if I have a third eye or that there is anything physically wrong with me, actually it's quite the opposite.

I stand at 6' 6'', muscular build, shoulder length brown hair, brown eyes, and I guess I've caught the attention of a girl or two. However, that not why I was different either.

You see, I never really seemed to fit in. Especially where my family was concerned. Not that I wasn't close to them. I am and I love them very much. It is hard to describe how I actually felt. I guess if I had to try to, I would say I felt as if I never truly belonged.

I've always had a feeling like I was missing a part of myself that I couldn't describe. Even though I was whole, which made no sense at all.

My mother is Rosemarie Hathaway Hanedani Ivashkov, a dhampir and a princess, which is quite laughable, if you knew anything about my mom. She is tough, opinionated, and well, just don't piss her off. Other than that, she's the best!

My dad is Adrian Ivashkov, well, he is/was Moroi, until things unfolded in his life that drastically changed his genetic make-up.

Technically, we've never come up with a name for our 'new breed', so to speak, considering the fact that there is only four of our kind. I, being one of them.

And the remaining two are my siblings, the twins. Alexsandr Adrian Ivashkov and Sophie Rose Ivashkov.

It is hard to believe that we share the same DNA. We are so entirely different in the looks department. Who am I kidding... we are different in every department.

My brother, Alexsandr, Alec as we call him, who is a complete chic magnet by the way, stands at roughly 6'4", muscular, but not as much as me. He has light brown, highlighted hair, and green eyes.

He looks a lot like dad, a real pretty boy. But, don't call him that, unless you're a girl who wants to get with him.

And lastly, that brings us to my sister, Sophie Rose. I have to say for my sister, she is very beautiful. Sophie looks a lot like mom. She stands at 5'10, athletic build, dark brown hair to the middle of her back, and green eyes.

She acts a lot like mom too. Yeah, word of advice, don't piss her off either.

As I mentioned before, we are a new breed of vampire, yes, I said vampire. We have fangs, but we don't drink blood like a traditional vampire does. Neither myself or the twins have ever tried it.

My dad drinks blood on occasion, not because he needs it to sustain his life or anything. Honestly, I think he likes the taste. I personally think that's strange, but that is not up to me to judge.

Only a few people know of our differences from the other Moroi and Dhampirs. It is kept secret out of fear that we may be scrutinized by our society. Royal or not.

However, it is known that all four of us are spirit users.

Our new race has many advantages over the Moroi and Dhampir races. Of them being; our strength, which is comparable to a strigoi. Yes, they are still problem and we still battle them. Speaking of strigoi, two of us can hear their thoughts, me and my dad.

Sophie and Alec can sense when they are close, a sixth sense if you will, just like mom.

We are all very fast, and none of us are sensitive to the sun. Sophie, Alec, and myself never had a problem with sunlight, but my dad's adjustment was gradual.

Eventually, he was able to stay in the sunlight without any restrictions, which made mom happy, considering she loved the sun and being outdoors.

The twins do have a way of communicating with each other through thoughts when they open their minds to one another. Where as I can get a sense of what your feeling when I am close to you.

Sophie has powers that Alec doesn't, one being that she could bring things back from the brink of death.

Where as Alec, could only heal minor things, people, whatever the occasion called for.

I myself could do both things, but I went a step further. I could actually bring thingsback from the dead.

It's been told that I can even bring a spirit back to their original form, if it was before their time, and with no restrictions on the amount of time that has passed or so it is predicted.

Some psychic mumbo-jumbo. It's not as if I would want to try it. I've never had a reason to want to at this point.

We realized one my gifts accidentally after our pet bird died. Dad had placed it in a box and we carried it to the backyard to bury it.

I was five years old, I didn't really understand what was going on with the whole death issue as I reached in the box to pull out our pet. I cradled the small animal in my little hands.

I had the oddest sensation come over me and I would never forget the way it felt. I felt warm, calm, and all consuming.

My dad and I stared at the bird, astounded as it's wings started to flutter and it flew away. I had collapsed after that incident and it took over 24 hours for me to gain consciousness.

Suffice it to say, my mother would freak if I ever did that again. She would definitely kick my ass.

She was always afraid to lose me. She reminded me of this often..I knew she loved Alec and Sophie very much.

But, mom always did treat me differently; a little more devoted, a few more hugs, a few more kisses, and I just felt more loved by her in general.

I have many more powers that the others don't have; when I am injured, my body heals itself, quickly, which is pretty cool. But, I am weakened for a short period of time afterwards. I have the ability to calm people by a simple touch.

I guess I could say that I am pretty smart, not just a smart ass. It has to be a gift that definitely skipped right past Alec. Thank god he is pretty…haha.

We all have different and unique powers that we are gifted with, more than I've mentioned. It changes.

Seriously, it seems as if I find out something new about myself everyday. But, on this particular day, I was caught completely off guard by the revelation that was made to me.

My life would never be the same. It changed in an instant; my dreams, my goals, and everything else in my life would be put on hold.

It was 8 days before my graduation when my life came crashing down around me.

My given name is Ethan Dimitri Ivashkov, but I am no longer that person.

Apparently, I am Ethan Dimitri Belikov and this is my story.

I totally love these characters ..

Ethan is smart, serious, and sexy like our Dimitri. But, funny, sometimes careless, and occasionally a smart ass like Rose.

Sophie is serious, sometimes snobby, But don't make her mad. She has a temper, like her mother.

And Alec, what can I say about Alec…He is that guy at school when you pass him in the hallways…He makes your heart race

fast, and your mind swims with 'thoughts' (haha)

I truly hope you enjoy this story….:D
