Adamo is merely a new pet to his maker, Juliet. Seeing to her every need and playing her games is certainly not what Adamo wants. When he finally sees a chance to escape, he takes it.

What is it about these short stories that I love so much? It's the superb writing- the way a scene plays out, the way the characters feel real and the excitment of not knowing what will come next. I love it!

Usually short stories aren't that great, but it's the opposite with Carla Krae.

I really feel for Adamo- he's
This short story is like those proverbial bag of airplane peanuts - not quite satisfying, but you sure want more. Good job, Ms. Carla Krae! My curiousity is piqued!

I liked. It was a captivating paranormal story. I liked the short story and the characters a lot. It was time well spent.

An enjoyable, engrossing read. Captivating paranormal, with genuine, likeable characters.
It was entertaining for a minute there. Like standing in line at the bank kinda minute.

I read this very short story in a few hours and it was fairly well written. I appreciated that the religious man that was turned to a vampire would not totally submit to being compelled by his maker. Perhaps he could hold out because he had once been a religious man. His female vampire maker tortured and played with him throughout the short story, trying to drive him to madness. It was not particularly gruesome, but more a short tale of this man's survival. I don't usually read short stories, bu ...more
Way too short. Longer than the prequel, but short just the same. And yes, I understand the concept of a short story, but I don't understand an abrupt ending where the reader is left speechless. I was shocked because there was nothing left and there's so much more to be told. More to be contemplated.

So Adamo is compelled by Juliet, his maker, because he feels as though he is evil and wants to be free. She makes him do horrible things (in his mind) until finally he decides, after a year, that he's

Finished!!! I don't know what to say about this book. Before it started to get good It finished. I was like WHAT!!!!! WHAT, DID THE BOOK JUST FINISH. I COULD NOT BELIEVE IT? I was looking through my Kindle and just felt speech less that is was done so fast. I think it was about 1 hour long. I just don't know what to say it finish fast to the point that I can't type a review.

3 stars!!!
This story picks up right "A Reluctant Vampire" and Adamo is still not giving completely into Juliet's unnatural ways. In this short story, you will start to see that Adamo is not as weak as they all think he is and you why Vittore is so jealous of Adamo. I really love this short stories, the only thing I don't love is that they are so short :-( I want more please!!! And thank you! :-)

I liked this story but found it lacking a little so I am giving it 3 stars. It might be because I read it before the 1st but I think they way my ebook is I had the 1st too. Could quite figure it out on here on this site. But I am going to get the 1st and the 3rd and give them a try and see were it goes.
Talk about not being able to choose your destiny!!I felt so bad for the about being stripped of your belifs and faith to be thrown into a violent, dark and sexual world of being a vampire!!I really liked this book and am looking forward to see where it goes...highly recommend!!!
Found out after reading this that there is a previous ebook that explains a little more. Wish I would have realized it, so I could have read that first.
had potential but was hurried and seemed to leave off with much more to tell. the author should have made it longer and given it its due.

cant believe he was part in the religion now he is disobeying it and became an enemy of GOD
Love Adamo! Hate Juliet with all the fires of Hell! That is all!
I am not sure what I think about this book yet......
This was an amazon freebie short. It was ok.
Extremely graphic vampire tale.
