Dimitri Arsov, the last remaining pure vampire, was thought to be dead for the past four hundreds years. Now, he is back and has a score to settle with the traitor that had tried to kill him centuries ago. But as he waits for his prey to blindly step into his carefully laid trap, his overwhelming hunger for blood is triggered when he saves a beautiful art historian.
Kerstyn Ingmar’s life was normal and straight up boring until the night she is rescued by the dangerously sexy, powerfully mesmerizing, Dimitri. Unable to resist his diamond blue eyes and intense kisses, she is drawn into his world of darkness and closer to her impending doom.
While their desire consumes them, Dimitri is haunted by images of a bloody and deadly future. As his enemies draw near, he must find a way to save his mate from her destiny before fate destroys them both.
I love a good vampire romance novel but this one was over the top good for me. I loved everything about it and I could end my review there. This is the second book in the series and I didn't read the first (yet) and it totally reads as a stand alone.
Dimitri is king of all vampires and is extremely powerful and dangerous. He faked his death 400 years ago and has come back to claim his mate. Kerstyn is a strong woman that has no trouble taking in her whole new life and is the only one not scared of Dimitri's vampire and she has the ability to calm his beast within and also has the power to draw it out of him. The romantic development is fast and intense due to the pace of the story. Their relationship is flaming hot right from the beginning to the end.
Amanda did a unbelievable job writing this book. I literally flew through the book and I can count numerous nights were I was up to wee hours in the morning reading on to see what was going to happen next the suspense was intense. She also did a great job with the worldbuilding because I didn't read the first book but I never felt lost or had questions. You will fall in love not only with the main characters in this book but with every character in this book. She also set up for the next book in the series nicely if I got my clues right.
I would highly recommend this book to paranormal romance fans especially if your a vampire lover. I can't wait for the next book in this series and I will be reading the first book very soon.
