Book Description:

On the verge of her twentieth birthday, Vivien’s worries are those of a typical young woman: doing well in college, gaining more independence, and maybe managing to show Brad, her classmate and sometimes jogging partner, that she wouldn’t mind taking their burgeoning relationship to a different level.

Everything changes in the blink of an eye. Vivien stumbles into a knife fight, watches a man die in front of her, and soon listens, stunned, as Brad and his brother Aedan tell her a story of magic, vampires and a murderous ruler intent on killing a princess in hiding – a tale in which she is the princess and heir to a realm she didn’t know existed.

Vivien’s first instinct is to refuse to believe this incredible tale, even if it comes from a man she is attracted to. But when her self-proclaimed bodyguards use magic to take her to a different world, the edges of reality start blurring and Vivien has to figure out who she truly is.

My Review
I received this book for review without knowing anything about the author, I hadn't read anything from Kallysten before so I wasn't sure what to expect. Now though, I am impressed. Starting this book I was thinking it would be ok but not a favorite and now after reading it I really enjoyed it. It has all of the things you could ask for in a sweet paranormal romance like this, action, adventure, a fascinating world and characters that make you fall in love with them (well maybe not Vivien but definitely the guys). And I loved the different look on vampires! I'm always excited to read a story like this with a new look at a favorite paranormal creature.

This story had a lot to it but was pretty simple and easy to follow but it also has a lot of info thrown in there. From the very first word I was interested, which can be a difficult thing for me since I've read so many books. But this one was surprisingly easy to read and enjoy!

I really liked Braden and Aedan's characters. They were everything you could ask for in heroes. They protected Vivien with their lives and would have done anything to make her happy. Vivien though, she is a spoiled brat, or she acted like one anyway. I didn't much care for her attitude towards Aedan, it kind of made me mad throughout the whole book. She should have just been grateful for everything they sacrificed for her but no, she has to act like a spoiled 5 year old about everything, including the fact that they fought to protect her. But in the end she turned around, mostly and won my respect with the way she handled herself with the King.

All in all, I enjoyed this book a lot. It's still not my favorite but it's close enough to being one. And with the way it ended, opening things up for the next book in the series, it really makes me wish I could continue on with the next one right now! I am very much looking forward to seeing where Kallysten takes these characters in the future and I'm also kind of hoping that poor Aedan gets his happy ending in all of this. I have my guesses but I'll keep those to myself until I can read the next book and see for myself. :) Until then though, I plan to catch up on all of this authors books that I haven't read yet because this book has made me a definite fan!!!

(I received this book in return for my honest opinion. I was not compensated for this review and the opinions stated in it are mine and mine alone.)

About the Author:

Kallysten’s most exciting accomplishment to date was to cross a few thousand miles and an ocean to pursue (and catch!) the love of her life. She has been writing for fifteen years, and always enjoyed sharing her stories and listening to the readers' reactions. After playing with science fiction, short stories and poetry, she is now trying her hand, heart and words at paranormal romance novels.
