Marrying the monstrous vampire king Adrian Vasiliev is the only way Isolde de Lara can save the lives of her people. It’s the classic solution to the threat posed by Adrian’s powerful vampire kingdom and gives her the chance to discover the king’s weaknesses. Adrian’s death at Isolde’s hand is all she wants at first, but the more she learns about the vampires and their history, the more she is drawn to their mysterious king, and Isolde soon realizes she doesn’t know the whole truth. Surrounded by a treacherous court of vampires with decades of complicated personal and political alliances, Isolde must find and forge her new role as queen of Revekka. But when threats from humans and vampires threaten her safety within the walls of her castle home, Isolde will have to trust the man she’s determined to defeat.
VERDICT St. Clair’s (“Hades X Persephone”; “Hades Saga”) epic new series is a vampire lover’s dream, with complex, sensual characters, visceral action scenes, and a riveting plot for fans of the enemies-to-lovers trope.
