I was just a reporter, trying to stay ahead of my student loans. I knew the rules, and I followed them.
I thought I knew how the world worked—humans lived their petty little lives in the safety of the sun. We loved and fought and—when the sun sank—we scurried behind our walls and lived in fear. That is when the monsters came out to play.
And even in the safety of the sun, we knew who ruled us.
The Houses. And their Scions.
Everyone knows the great Houses and their Scions—they are feared and loved and hated and envied. They are the gods who walk the shadows and rule all of our lives. They are salvation and death.
And somehow, I am one of them.
I came across this book through blog tour and it sounded like something I enjoy so I requested a review copy.
I really glad that I did. I really enjoyed this book.
It has action, suspense, romance some steamy smexy scenes and plenty of snarky humor.
The beginning was a bit confusing since I have not read the prequel novella but this book had a glossary in the beginning that helped with that. As far as what house is what and what positions in the house and such. I think what I liked about this book the most is that while the world knows about Vampires they should still fear them. They are still or can be very dangerous to human and they have no problem showing the human world who is on top of the food chain. Of course they is always one group that tries to destroy the vampires.
The book has Dual POVs. Farley who is human and raised human and is scared of vampires but turns out is their House Scion and Octavius who is the houses blade.
I enjoyed the dual view because we get a better look into both worlds and views.
I like both main characters and can’t wait to learn about all about them and dig further into the secrets that have been hiding along the worlds they been living in.
There are some pretty nice twists and turns. The book is very fast paced and hard to put down.
Overall. I loved the book and looking forward to the next book
I rate it at 4 ½ ★
