I love the Demonica and Horseman series, so much that this was an instant download for me. And although this book was okay, it was nowhere near as go..Show More »od as her other books. It was almost unbelievable that the main characters actually got together and fell in love. Nicole character was not congruent, she went from doing lab test on vampires to being a vampire lover. She was supposed to be smart, but she blatantly ignored horrors that were right under her nose. She must know how the slaves were treated, yes I can see when she was a child she didn't know better, but she was 28 in the book. What got my caw was the fact she supported things I wouldn't wish on anybody not animals, not people, and not vampires. I know she didn't know the extent of what was happening, but still she was supposed to have been the CEO. After I got over her the book improved and I will probably read the next book, based on how well I liked her other series, who knows maybe this one will improve. I liked the narrator pretty good but I'm not as picky as other listeners out there. Overall I would give this a 3.5, it's hard to rate because the characters weren't great but the world building has potential.
I enjoyed this book better than book 1, but there is still something missing for me. In this sequel, Hunter, chief of MoonBound clan has to fulfi..Show More »ll the bargain he made in book 1, to marry the daughter of a rival clan. While Hunter wasn't looking forward to mating Rasha, as a leader, he had to create alliances as the human attacks on vampires continue to increase.
Rasha travels to her new clan with her twin sister Aylin as a decoy in case they come across trouble. Aylin is disposable since she has a limp, and she is a second twin who should have been drowned according to clan customs. When the group came under attack, Hunter was able to rescue the princess and they spent some time getting to know each other. Imagine Hunter's shock when he learned that it was actually Aylin, not Rasha that he has been spending time with at the hidden cabin.
The contrast in personalities is vast as Rasha is just awful and Aylin is so sweet. I did find that cliche that the beautiful one was rotten inside and the deformed sister was a gem inside. But it put Hunter in a quagmire--does he do his duty or follow his heart?
The length of time it took to resolve this triangle, coupled with the dangling issues with Mine and the traitor left me unsatisfied.
The world building in this book was much better and more interesting. The origins of the clans, seeing some of the individual's abilities such as Aylin's gift was a good touch to this story. I will continue the series but I wasn't wowed by this one either.
