Not everything is as it seems.
Sarah thought she was just another orphan left on a doorstep. She had a quiet life working as a secretary at the local printing company. One night changed everything. Now she is journeying to Zlorta to learn about her powers in the company of a man named Micheal. Though she has never seen his face, she feels compelled to follow him and explore the passion that burns between them.
Antony will stop at nothing to possess her and her powers. He sends his henchmen to attack and kidnap her. Micheal swears he will protect her with his life. But as she loses her heart to him, she finds that she must protect him. Will Sarah prevent Micheal’s death or will Antony make her his weapon?
I honestly didn’t keep track because I was so engrossed in the book!
I received a copy of this book from the author in exchange for my honest opinion.
This is an *NSFW*. You’ve been warned.
At first, I was a little put off by the title of the book. I thought it was going to be an amateur science fiction novel so imagine my surprise that it was a paranormal romance with a new twist on vampires and magic.
Hunt did an amazing job at bringing a refreshing perspective to a vampire romance novel. I wouldn’t even say it is just a vampire novel because that is too small of a box to put it in. There is action, adventure, romance, and magic. At first I wasn’t sure how this book was going to go but the concept and storyline were both very interesting and I couldn’t put it down.
I do wish that Sarah and Micheal’s romance had developed slower. It went from “I just met you” to “I’m attracted to you” to “we’re inseparable” very quickly. I am a sucker for a slow tease that leaves you desperate for more.
At first, I noticed a lot of the sentences were short and cut off with a period; I felt like they didn’t flow. I felt like I had to stop and start my train of thought often. But as the story went on, it either got better or became less noticeable. This is simply me being nitpicky.
The ending was rather abrupt and cut off, but it did still leave me wanting to read more.
Overall, this was a really interesting read, and I am excited to see where Hunt takes it next. If you like action, adventure, romance, vampires, and magic then this book is for you. Happy reading, everyone!
