So although my patience was tested with this book when it took forever to come out, I am now happy and content with my Mirko fix.
After the cliffhanger in book 1 I was dying to read this book, and if there's 1 thing I have to give credit for to this author- she really knows how to keep her audience on edge.

This was a great addition to the series. Just like Descended by blood this story was very entertaining and completely addictive.
Definitely worth the wait! Wish there was more Jaren though and

WOW....I mean WOW!!! I feel like I've been waiting forever for this book to come out and it was totally worth the wait!!! I hope I don't have to wait as long for the next one! I'm still totally Team Mirko! Brooke has grown a lot in this book. Relationships form, solidify and change and it's a wild ride. She also CHOOSES (OMG! I know right!) in this book!! There's some crazy twists and turns in this book. Things I totally didn't expect. If you loved the first book you will love this one!

To see my full review:

I’ve waited a very, very long time for this second installment in the Vampire Born series, and let me tell you, it was worth every minute! Kace once again grips readers in this tale of love and betrayal, gluing readers to the pages as the plot develops, twists, and turns, leaving the reader wondering just who the enemy within the ranks really is…

Mirko, Mirko, Mirko. That boy is so epically swoon worthy and I envy Brooke to the highes

Ahh! She's done it again >_<
Angeline has me totally hooked with book two in her Vampire Born series, Enemy Within, and I am without a third installment to keep me satisfied!! *curls into a ball and cries*

If you haven't read the first installment, Descended by Blood, I highly recommend you do! It's very unique and utterly gripping =D wait for news on a possible book 3....I'm waiting, Angeline =P

Enemy Within by Angeline Kace = Ass-kicking Goodness all the way!

Enemy Within is the new thrilling addition to the Vampire Born trilogy from author Angeline Kace. I was lucky enough to have beta read for this novel, and let me tell you, it's been awesome to be able to watch this story grow and evolve. Kace's writing abilities just keep getting better and better. I purchased my copy as soon as it went live on Amazon!

Brooke has really shown some growth as the main character. She's accepted her ne

Enemy Within picked up where Descended by Blood left off with Brooke thinking her newfound father was trying to kill her. Mirko rallies a group of Zao Duh's to try and protect her but her father makes it clear he means her no harm and claims her as his daughter despite the consequences. Brooke and her father must face the council to explain themselves, her for killing a protected vampire; Jelena and her father for creating a half breed human/vampire in Brooke. She also has to figure out who trie

I received Enemy Within from the author in exchange for a fair and honest review.

I really want to ramble and rant and rave over this review, but I’m not exactly sure how. It’s not that I didn’t love this book, because I did. It was everything that Descended by Blood was, if not more. My hesitation comes from the fact that I’m scared to death that I’m going to give something away. There were so many twists and turns. So many secrets revealed and so much that happened almost every chapter was ja

Well, I thought I loved the first one, but wow, this was awesome!! With the way the last book ended I had been dying for this book. I easily fell right back into the world. I thought the first book was full of surprises and action, but this one steps it up. The stakes are higher, and things are very personal. It makes for a really great journey and I was sucked right in.

Brooke has to really discover herself in this. She has to decide between two boys who both have her heart, protect herself, try

First of all, thanks Angeline for the review copy!!! I felt like I had waited a lifetime for this book! I had actually started reading it and got through the first chapter, thought to myself, I have no idea of what is going on???? I had to go back and read Descended By Blood all over again! But it was sooo worth it!

The first book left us with with Brooke figuring out that her Dad basically was trying to kill her. In this book, we really get to know her father and see a little bit more of how muc

A review copy was provided for an honest review. Having read Descended by Blood, the first book in the series; I had expected an equally good sequel. What's delivered is a nice follow-up but I didn't love it as I did the first. At the heart of it all I think I built up impossible expectations. Reflecting on it I guess the story didn't go in the direction I thought it would which took me by surprise. Despite that I thought the world that's built was intriguing and greatly detailed especially with ...more

First – let me say I hate Angeline Kace. What? Yep. I do. Why? Cause now she has me totally invested in this kick ass series – and the third book is not out yet! When Enemy Within ended, and I realized I had just read the last page, I felt like the guy in the movies who falls to his knees in the rain and screams toward the sky in agony. I even clicked my kindle page forward/backward buttons a few times, trying to will more words to appear. It didn’t work. So yeah, sorry Angeline Kace, but I hate

4 stars- Still very much TEAM MIRKO!

I loved the strong, confident Mirko in book one and that hasn't changed. Jaren made me mad in book one and I never got over it. Brooke certainly was more patient with him than I was.

I haven't read a lot of vampire books over the years. Some I like but most I don't. It's nice, though, to find a series that has more depth to the vampire lore than most. The Descended by Blood series is full of complex lore that gives meaningful issues for these vampires to overco

Wow its close to a year since I posted that update. What did I think about this book? Hmmm? I absolutely loved it. It picks up right where Descended by Blood left off.

Brooke is back and better then ever. She is just as strong-willed and stubborn as she was in the last book. And I thank her for making her decision on who she wants, Mirko or Jared, early on. There was no wishy washy crap in this book. She made her decis

Holy steaminess!

Now I remember why I'm team Mirko!! That boy man can push me up against a wall any day of the week!


After "patiently" waiting for book #2, I absolutely devoured it. Something about the story, the connection to the characters, all made it seem so fresh & new to me. It took me a while to articulate exactly how to put this review....I went back and forth...and back and forth...nothing I said seemed to do justice to what I had just read. So, I waited.

Kace continues to build her unique world of vampires and expand on her multiple story lines to create another action-packed novel. The author tells this story through both Brooke’s and Mirko’s points of view.

Picking up where the first story ended, Brooke discovers her connection to the most powerful vampire is—he’s her father. Brooke’s existence thr

After waiting for what seemed like an eternity to read "Enemy Within" I must say that I was a little disappointed. The book was rather bland after the wonderful read of the first book. It seems that "Enemy Within" is suffering from the 'sophomore curse' that so many series do.

In this installment, Brooke finally makes a decision in her love triangle. After being betrayed by Jaren, she decides on Mirkos only to discover that their relationship is also forbidden. Initially, she believes that the fa

Descended by Blood was one of the best book The BookWhisperer read last year. I have an anxiously awaiting Enemy Within, and just couldn’t wait to get it started. I jumped right on reading this title when it was sent to me. Enemy Within picks up immediately following the conclusion of book one. We jump right into the story, and it takes on a whole new direction. After discovering her Father not to be the kind and wonderful man that just saved her; she is left on the run yet again.

I do have to admit I was a little lost in the beginning of this book, being as it was a year ago I read the first one, but once I got into it, I couldn't put it down. I knew that I loved the first book too, so this helped me to keep reading. This story was very fast paced and was over before I knew it.

In the last book, I wasn't a huge Mirko fan, I was rooting for Jaren. However, once I started reading the steamy scenes between Brooke and Mirko, I quickly changed alliegences to Mirko. Man was tha

I liked this book more than the first which surprised me. I put off reading this book because I was worried that I wouldn't like it as much as the first. A lot of books have burned me that way and I feared this sequel could do the same. I shouldn't have doubted Ms. Kace! Won't happen again. Loved the dual POVs. More books are starting to go that way and I think its awesome!
Thanks so much for a great second book! Can't wait for the third.

Wow! LOVED THIS BOOK!!! Angeline - it was really good!!! Now I need the next book because that cliffhanger... I just about died! And I didn't read the teaser from the next one because that'll just make me want to, no need to read the third book even MORE! Full review to follow.

Amazing sequel!!! Although I was disappointed with how long this book took to come out, it was well worth the wait. Can't wait for book 3! Only thing I would change was the cover....doesn't give an impression of how amazing this book is and the model looks a little weird.
