This book was super cool. A book with vampires and werewolves can sometimes be kind of a Twilight copycat, but I really felt like this book was really different. I loved the characters, especially Quinten and Ray, and I felt like they were all one big dedicated family. There was intense action that was described so well I felt like I was watching the fights in person, and there was a relationship that grew over time and turned out to be true love. This book has it all. Drama, action, romance, suspense, and mystery.
The idea behind this book (vampire bodyguards, vampire goddesses, and vampires with special powers) has been done many times before, like with House of Night and Vampire Academy, but I still really loved it. The main character felt real and likeable, and I couldn’t help but love her. Her relationship with the person she’s sworn to protect was different because she was in love with her. The main character is bisexual, and I really liked that. She had a hard time figuring out who she was, and it made me relate to her all the more. There wasn’t much romance in this book, which I really liked, since most paranormal romance books seem to be love stories with a bit of plot mixed in. The action in this book is well-written (action scenes seem to be a specialty of this author) and the twist ending had me in shock.
This book was good. It wasn’t anything super special, but I liked the characters, and I liked their powers. There wasn’t a ton of action in this one, but it was still well-written and I felt like I was there. The relationship between the two main characters develops from a hateful one to one that might be love, and I like that they weren’t resolved by the end of the first book. One thing I’ve noticed about this author is she isn’t scared of causing her main characters pain. They’re always betrayed, or seriously injured, or even killed in some cases, and I think their mental, emotional, and physically suffering makes them more relatable.
