Are we going to start with a blurb? Why yes, yes we are.
The men and women who do not have ‘queen’ status are called ‘blood’ what that means is they are warriors and feeders to the queen. A queen can have as many blood as they want, and gain power from their blood. What the blood get from this relationship is they also increase power.
This book is a fascinating take on Vampires. We have Sahara who is a vampire queen. What I took that as like a hive sort of thing. Or in this case, they call it ‘nests.’
They go through this change, gaining more power, this helps them care for their queen. They love her and keep her safe. This book was a mix of love and finding yourself. Sahara was alone for so long running from the bad Vampire’s which they also call the thrall.
What I loved about this book is that. Joley Burkheart didn’t hot back on the whole blood situation. She could have gone the clean-cut way with it. But she threw that out the window and was in it to win it. I love dark romance, why? Well because it’s interesting to see where the line is for some people. Nowhere do I advocate any type of abuse. But fiction is fiction. Not to say there was abuse in this book, because well there wasn’t. It was just a lot of sex with blood mixed in. It was consensual between all parties involved.
The second thing I loved was the M/M aspect in this book, she had her men indulge in their desires for each other. Which hello I love that so much! So thank you Joley, you rocked it so hard. The socks are officially off.
All I can say is ladies, Daire and Alrik make this book. They are ear candy for sure. They are the warriors that come to save Sahara and tell her what she is. I loved these too they help make this story. I am not going to tell you much else, I don’t want to spoil it. If you haven’t read Joley Sue Burkhart before you need to start with this. She is amazing when it comes to giving a new outlook on Vampires.
