My rating: 4 of 5 stars
The Only Larissa Ione books that I have read are the Lord of Deliverance books. The vampires in that series are VERY different from the ones in this series.
In this world that Larissa Ione created, vampires are known to the humans - and slaves! Or on the run and in hiding. Anywhoo, this book revolves around Nicole, a human whose family is the leading manufacturers in everything, well, anti vampires, and Riker, a vampire who hates humans because they killed his mate.
I will say, it wasn't at all what I was expecting (especially because I was used to the OTHER type of vampires that she had introduced us to), and at times it was boring. But for an introduction into this world, it wasn't that bad.
There was a lot of tension (wink - wink) between the main characters, and it is action packed. I even cried a couple of times during it. I was thrown through a loop time and time again, and there were things that happened that I definitely was NOT expecting.
So, you might be wondering why the 4 stars, or me even giving it this nice review if I thought some parts were slow. Well, not all of it was boring, just the parts before the action, and I guarantee you, before you even hit the middle you wont be able to put it down!
I really am looking forward to the second book, though! It looks even better than this one, and I kinda - sorta already think that the next main character is going to be my favorite. Plus, the plot is very different than what I think, so that's a bonus.
So, I do suggest that you pick up this book when it comes out because Larissa Ione is a very good writer who just doesn't stop! And who doesn't love sexy vampires?
