I’m a part of the Netgalley readers community, and I was shocked by the lack of Vampire Novels. In my desperation I searched ‘Vampire’ and this was the ONLY book.
But it must have been kismet because this book was awesome.
It’s set in a slightly futuristic American, where there is a Vampire Royal Family.
The Prince, Dallas, is looking for a wife, and he wants a human wife one from one of the settlements. And so begins, a ‘The Bachelor’ type reality with Vampires, Rebels and an impending war.
I’ve heard this book called ‘The Selection’ with Vampires. I haven’t read The Selection, so I can’t really compare, but it was a great read.
Sensitivity training so they won’t insult the Vampires. Now I’ve heard of everything.
Gwen was a likable heroine. At first, she had a kind of Katniss complex, looking out for family etc.
“I no longer let myself want things. Wanting wasn’t something I could afford. It lead only to disappointment.”
She made friends quickly, and was quite sassy, and clearly wanted to help. I could see that the author was setting her up to be a ruler.
“She was my friend, and she was kind. And she was certainly easier to get along with than me.”
Very Byronic. He had a tortured, kind of way about him. He clearly had a lot of responsibility and was trying to change the problems within the kingdom.
The Vampire Myth
Fangs, impervious to bullets, drink only liquids (Blood & Wine) Northern Vampires can have children, Vampire can be made via bite.
Amazing, 5 star YA Vampire read. I believe it’s a Trilogy and I cannot wait to start The next in the series- The Gala
