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 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 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

What is there to be said that hasn't been mentioned already. To be honest, this is a book you will not want to put down. It takes you places far and wide, and introduces you to things we have been shielded from. The format the author used for the story was very well thought through. Everything comes full circle in the end and the font size is very easy on the eyes which I thought was very convenient. I have read it multiple times and I still find myself researching things I missed the first time ...more
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 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 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!
I received this book as part of the First Reads program.

This just wasn't my type of book. I enjoy vampire books as well as the vague allusions to aliens but I just could not get in to this book. I don't want to dissuade other people from checking it out because it is well written but just not for me. I couldn't stand the main character and while the conspiracy theories/philosophies were explained well I did not enjoy them and felt they bogged the story down. If you enjoy a lot of intrigue and tw

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