Shara has been on the run for five years never being able to stay in one place longer than a month. Why? Monsters hunt her and every time her period starts they’re able to track her down by the scent of her blood. Honestly, I would be exhausted…imagine fighting for your life EVERY MONTH while you’re on your period?! That’s cruel and unusual punishment right there.
Daire and Rik are Blood, people who are meant to serve a vampire Queen. For years they’ve yearned for their own Queen to serve and have been searching coast to coast in hopes of finding one. Lovers for years they’re both extremely close and long for the time they can share a Queen.
I’m really fascinated with the lore behind the origin of Vampires in this series and look forward to finding more about the history the authors created. At times the dialogue got a little cheesy between the two Blood and Shara but not so much that I needed to walk away.
The connection between all three is strong and I’m a little sad that she’ll be adding more Blood, at some point, because a Queen grows in strength the more Blood she has. I really like seeing the relationship develop between Shara, Daire, and Rik. I’m hopeful that their bond will remain strong regardless of how many Blood wander into their life.
What a fun start to a series and as long as you aren’t squeamish about reading scenes with blood play, including scenes when she starts her period, you should be just fine. I should be picking up book two soon as this book ends with some new information, and a new direction to travel, and I’m eager to learn where it all leads.
This series is currently available to read if you have Kindle Unlimited so I thought I’d try this widget out. 💜
