“You are destined to be a thorn in my side for all of eternity.”
I’d suggest this roughly sums up the book.
We met both of the main characters in book one of this series. Viper is the almighty clan leader and Shay is a half human/demon. To be precise she is a Shalott, which makes her blood irresistible to all vampires.
Viper buys her at a slave market… I know romantic right. However there is a ‘big bad’ trying to take Shay for their own use. So they slowly fall in love, along with the necessary kidnapping, torture and killing of ‘big bad’.
The story is predictable but written well and is fast paced. It’s one of the reasons I am enjoying this series. Action, paranormal and romance all in one, with neither of them outweighing the other.
Viper is swoon worthy in that dangerous Mr.Grey way.
However I think the better character here is Shay. She’s a strong willed, independent and brave woman who can put Viper and other vampires in their place. I liked that and I hope to see more of her in the series.
But prize for the best character in the book goes to Levet. A gargoyle. He’s great, a little nutty but is a great side-kick for Shay.
2 books into a series and I am happy to continue further down the rabbit hole with these characters.
My Rating 4/5.
