This Story Is Seductive

Publisher's Summary

One of the few humans who managed to escape the deadly twilight world of Vamp City, Quinn Lennox vows never to return. But the vampires want her back, for only she has the power to renew the magic of their crumbling world and free the vampires trapped within.

When the dangerous and all-too-seductive Arturo Mazza comes for her, Quinn knows that she can never trust him after the betrayal she suffered at his hands. But with her beloved brother's fate hanging in the balance and her own power beginning to emerge, she chooses to risk it all on yet another perilous journey back to Vamp City. And though she tries to deny it, her heart begins to hold hope that even a ruthless vampire can learn the meaning of true love.

Vampires are corrupt and Humans are at their mercy

There are very few series where vampires are just all bad and corrupt. This is one of those where I just don’t see how they can be redeemed.

Quinn Lennox has always had weird things happening to her like seeing portals or her eyes/hair glowing etc. Quinn has been tested for almost every disease and there seemed to be nothing physically wrong with her.
One day Quinn and her brother are sucked into a parallel world where vampires are at the top of the food chain and that’s when Quinn learned that her dreams weren’t a figment of her imagination.

In this parallel world, humans are auctioned for the pleasure and servitude of the vampire and Quinn was purchased by Arturo Mazza, a vampire whose feeds on fear. It was confusing for me at first to decided where Arturo's loyalty lay. He seemed to feel something for Quinn, but his master wanted Quinn for her dormant magically powers, so whenever there was any issues, Arturo never stood up for her.

I came to hate the vampires because they reveled in their power over humans and abused them mercilessly. It was disturbing and I found myself rooting for a rebellion to kill the vampires.
In the end, Quinn and her brother were able to escape back to Washington DC and away from the vampires with the help of Arturo. But the last few paragraphs let the readers know that all wasn't what it seemed. Arturo isn't all that he seems. After this book, I don't think I can ever trust the vampires. They enjoy feeding off people's misery way too much. But I will continue reading because I am hoping the humans will crush the vampires.
