Story Overview:
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.

My Review:
I like the little twists and creativity that Megan Erickson has added to the vampire lore, and the blood veil is a very cool one. 

Like his brother before him, Idris has no intention for falling for the woman he's in charge of. In fact, she's the daughter of his mortal enemy, so she's as off-limits as they come. But what he didn't expect from her was her complete ignorance about who she is or vampires in general. And that tiny bit of vulnerability slays him and knocks him to his knees. He never expected to feel any empathy for Celia...or anything else. 

I wish there had been more interaction between the two brothers, but liked the bonding between the sisters. It was interesting to see how ignorant Idris was of anything in the human realm. I didn't remember the two societies being quite that segregated in the first two stories. 

Overall, I did enjoy this book. I liked how the climax flowed and the choices that were forced upon these two that were all impossible. It made for great, exciting reading.

The story seemed a tiny bit stilted and off in certain places which affected the flow of the story, but I enjoyed it enough that I could overlook those small issues. And the story line was very creative...I liked the little details about it and wonder if there will be more books to come. There definitely is a lot of things that could still be explored in this world.

I received a complimentary copy of this book in return for an honest review.
