Why I chose this?
This is a book that popped up on NetGalley after leaving a review on another book. I thought it sounded alright so here it is.
What it’s about
Centuries ago, there was a beauty who did not live happily ever after. She fled her vampire Ottoman Prince, who now rules the Primati supernatural on earth with his half-brother Alaric, the terrifying Enforcer. The runaway beauty’s only living descendant, seventeen-year-old Stella Avery, is juggling the care of her ailing grandfather with the discovery that life is not what it seems in Portland, Oregon.
Stella’s Romany family shadow her every move and she discovers that an ancient enemy
wants her dead. Her best friend, Amanda, reveals herself to be an actual witch and Stella must uncover the truth about the curse that has killed every woman in her family before their twenty-first birthday—or suffer the same fate.
For Alaric, his role as Primati Enforcer means utter loyalty to his brother. Half-angel, half-demon, he has no place in his heart for a mortal. Feared in his own right, Alaric finds himself torn between the law he has protected for hundreds of years and a young girl who cannot be loved without bringing about her own death.
What I Thought
**Thank you, NetGalley for an eArc in exchange for an honest review**
This story follows Stella as she dives headfirst into the paranormal world while falling head over heels with Alaric almost instantly while trying to survives curse.
Stella is a headstrong girl who knows exactly what she wants, is brave in the face of adversity, and doesn’t hesitate to make the first move in romantic relationships. With Alaric who is the love interest, I thought he was interesting especially when his background is brought to light. Still not quite sure how to picture him as at some parts it was like an information overload
Although a lot was packed into this book there didn’t seem like there was a whole lot of excitement but it’s been built up enough to set up sequels. Which I am really hoping for and I believe they will be happening as the cover says book one but I’ve not been able to find things on Goodreads.
For a book that had me questioning things throughout the book, this wrapped up most things rather nicely. A must-read for those who like stories about vampires and witches.
