For over 11,000 years, the survivors of Atlantis have secretly ruled the earth through an ancient society known as the Rominus Empire, bringing death and order to an already decadent world. Yet within this vampire kingdom, an ancient prophecy foretells of an imminent civil war between clans fated to spark the end of the human race, and of the hybrid king destined to stop it by surviving the merging of all three vampire bloodlines within his mortal body. At the highest levels of power are a cland...more

- I have read a few vampire books in my day mainly because my girlfriend is into twilight but this one I actually really liked. It took a couple pages to figure out what was going on and memorize characters names but before I knew it I was seeing the world through the eyes of Vlad Dracula and and a buncha other really cool vamps. I also noticed that this book was written in present tense. My guess is that that was intentional. It read pretty quickly so that's another plus. Some parts creeped me...more
I cant find a better way to start describing this one of a kind novel, but if i was to describe it in one word i would say it is Unprecedented. Rominus has introduced to us a whole new world of vampires, i can guarantee any novel enthusiast and others alike that they have never read anything like Rominus before. It is a piece of art that includes a combination of multiple genres into one book. This book can make you experience the entire spectrum of human emotions at the same time. Jonathan Amar...more

I thought this was an excellent book! It's a wonderful concept with a twist. The characters were easy to identify with and throughout the story became like real people that you care about.

I did find the beginning part a little difficult to escape into the story. I would maybe recommend either adding on some of the details regarding the history of the vampires and their influence throughout history either into the prelude or the history at the beginning of the book. Other than that, I loved it!

A first reads give away, this book is a real tour de force as it is filled with twists, turns and suspense. It tells of the true making of a vampire king and the history of thousands of years of age old vampires and how their worlds work. It is an entrancing read, one that keeps the reader so compelled that I couldn't put it down. I loved it.
I won this book a while back in a giveaway. I was out of the country for a few months and didn't have a chance to read it. Now that I'm back, I'm going to give it a go!!

EDIT: Pretty great vampire book. A bit confusing at first, but once you give the book your full attention it's a great read!

I think that this book was superbly orchestrated. The way it draws you in and keeps you there. Couldn't put the book down for two days, from chapters 12-23. I'll be definitely re-reading this book.

I won this book from First Reads. I got the book, but was told it wasn't the correct version. Waiting on the corrected version. Can't wait to get it!

It's a great book to read, but it is very long. I still liked it a lot anyway.
