Review - "Rise of the Fallen" by Donya Lynne

Rise of the Fallen
(All the Kings Men #1)
Author:  Donya Lynne
Publisher: Phoenix Press
Release Date: 3/23/12 
Genre: Erotic Paranormal Romance
Source: Provided by author

Vampire Micah Black is on a downward spiral and he’s slowly losing his mind. Having lost not one but two mates in his long lifetime, he doesn’t want to live anymore and his incredible craving for pain has become so unbearable that he seeks out one of his clans biggest enemies, dreck named Apostle and almost causes their long time peace to end. He wants Apostle to kill him in a most painful way and Apostle is eager to help him with that.

Samantha Garrett has been hiding for a while now from her crazy abusive husband and has been stripping in a seedy bar to pay the bills and stay under his radar. When she stumbles upon a man being beaten to death she goes against her better judgment and saves him from the gang of really strange looking blue haired men.  In doing so she may have changed Micah’s fate, forever because she is now on her way to becoming his third and most cherished mate. If they can overcome Micah’s past issues and take care of the little problem of the drecks trying to sabotage them…oh and that pesky crazy husband issue…maybe they can finally find the happiness they both desperately want.

This book really took me by surprise! I wasn’t expecting to love it this much but I did and I’m so glad I’ve found this author! It’s so refreshing to find a Vampire story that isn’t so much like all of the others out there but Donya Lynne has succeeded in making this book original and quite entertaining!

Micah actually had some major inner issues to deal with, it was kind of nice to see such a big tough guy like him not feel as confident as a vampire usually is and seeing him open up and fall in love was a beautiful thing. But I must add that once he got back on his feet, he was one kick ass bad boy. It was SO funny when he interacted with the other guys one the team. Talk about a bad attitude. LOL I’m really going to miss the angry Micah in future books.

Sam is a very in your face, ass kicking character too so it was only natural that she end up with an alpha male like Micah and I loved that he was such a hard ass with the guys but when it came to her he would get all sweet and mushy. She so deserved someone as sweet and doting as Micah is towards her, especially after her horrible relationship with her crazy husband and I really loved how that relationship ends. If you ask me, he should have gotten much worse.

I loved all of the different guys on the AKM team, there are so many different personalities and that makes for some interesting character interaction, that’s for sure. I’m looking forward to the next book, Heart of the Warrior, which will be Severin and Arion’s story but the one I really want to read is Trace’s story. I can’t wait to find out what’s up with him and how the whole thing with Micah plays out.

I give this book 4.5 Moons and recommend it to all PNR and Vampire lovers! It’s something new and different and it’s worth the time to read it!
