In the midst of supernatural chaos, worlds and hearts collide.
Celia: Having never known my parents, I’ve always felt like an orphan. All I want is a normal life. But after I’m attacked in my bedroom by one vampire—and rescued by another—it’s about time to give up on “normal” once and for all. Idris, the second in command of the Gregorie vampire clan, has come to my aid, but his motives for saving me are unclear. And what surprises me most is my attraction to his heated gaze. . . .
Idris: Terror. Curiosity. Arousal. These are the natural impulses of a human female, not the spawn of the ruthless Valarian king. Is it possible that Celia is unaware of her bloodline—and the power coursing through her veins? As the daughter of my archenemy, she was supposed to be my ransom. But how quickly the heat of desire changes everything. Now the family Celia has always craved is trying to kill her, and it’s up to me to save her again—when all I really want to do is make her mine.
I am really glad this can be read as a stand alone. I picked a book to review from a series without reading the books that came before it. Thankfully I can catch up rather quickly since this is book #2 in the series.
This book was a quick easy read. It was a bit predictable but I feel that lets you focus on the characters. There are a few bits of ‘vampire lore’ I enjoyed as they where different than what I mostly read. I hope that they inspire other authors to branch out of the generic plots of vampire worlds. I felt there was a few details that could have been added since it states it can be a stand alone if wanted. It was also a little fast paced once they found Amelia. I was rather disappointed I finished the book because I got so involved in the world.
Over all this is a good book to read and I would read other books Megan Erickson has written.
I received this book from netgalley.com for a honest review.
