Had no idea what I was getting into when I started reading the first book. I thought it would be a bit of fluff to tide me over while waiting on another series. I WAS WRONG!!!!! These books are additive. I could not get enough. The characters and world are so very real that I could be reading for 5 mins. and be stepping right into that world. I laughed, I cried, both sad and happy tears. I grew angry and anxious and every other emotion you can imagine. Shade and Kate’s story is not an easy one. It is not just boy meets girl and fall in love and HEA after a few bumps in the road. It is heartfelt sorrow, happiness, love and fear all the things that make a great story. Shade Medici is a King, warrior, fearless, brave and driven to keep his people safe and his love for Kate is completely real with all the troubles and fears and everything that goes with it. There is betrayal, wars, loss and above all Love. There are tender moments, fighting, misunderstandings and still Love. Step into a world that gives you all the feels and make you never want to step out of it again. I WOULD HAVE GIVEN THIS SERIES A 10+ IF I COULD. DON’T KEEP YOUR VAMPIRE KING WAITING!!!
