Loved Loved Loved this story!! Vicq can bite me anytime he wants...

Oh how I love a good vamp romance! Vamps are and will always be my favorite paranormal genre and I am always looking for a new love.

Ambrielle Kirk's Donor does not disappoint.

First things first. Donor is a fast moving right from the get, action packed, smexy story. The characterizations were well rounded and the prose completely flowed. There was a very dystopian feel that made the author's world very realistic. The smexy scenes

I was given a copy of 'Donor' from Amber Ella Monroe, in exchange for an honest review.

Having recently read the prelude to Donor, I couldn't wait to sink into this book, to find out how things progressed after the cliffhanger from 'Prelude'. 'Donor' is book 1 in the "Dresden Coven" series, but I do sujest you read this series in order, starting with 'Prelude".

Once I started I was quickly enthralled in Vicq & Elaina's life after Vicq escapes the Vampire Lords dungeons. I was LOST, I didn't

For months our heroine has hid herself, moving and changing her name, all to stay hidden from the corrupt corporation she use to work for and longing for the vampire she's sure died to protect her. Our hero escaped but instead of returning for our heroine, he's chosen to watch over her from afar, until her location is comprised. On the run from those who want to capture her and kill him, they drive cross country towards his hidden coven.

My opinion:
I love it! Ambrielle Kirk created an interesting universe filled with lies and treachery where the good persons are not who they seem to be and where you must be careful with whom you trust.
Her version of vampire is called Dresdan and they are a little different from the most common vampires but still have a lot of common so you really dive into the story without bothering with the specific terms even better she

I love a story when members from the “opposite team” fall in love….
Elaina was supposed to track down this wanted Dresdan Vicq. Instead she falls in love with him.

I do appreciate that there is much background given about how it has come to be that the once Dresdan Tracker Elaina working for District 5 is now on the run for her life. She finds a mate in one Vicq, the Dresdan she was sent to

This was a solid first story in the Dresdan Coven series and I’m a little mad at myself it was in my TBR so long. As a former member of District 5, Elaina’s role as a tracker of the Dresdan led her to Vicq. As a vamp creation of the master vampire Russo, Vicq is not your ordinary Dresdan. He has some special skills that he uses to woo and protect Elaina. Unfortunately, after he was exiled from Russo’s coven for his affiliation with Elaina, Vicq has left Elaina alone long enough and he’s finally ...more

Book Review- Donor by Ambrielle Kirk


The story was a novella about Vicq who leads a separate vampire coven among the Dresdan vampires. He has found his mate, Elaina, who was a former tracker of Dresdan vampires for the organization known as District 5. She was sent to execute Vicq by the District. She was unable to carry out Vicq’s sentence and saved his life instead. As a result of her change of heart she was pulled into the battle between the leader of the Dresdan people and Vicq. She almost

I really liked reading this book to pass the time, but I felt like there were information gaps. Maybe the prequel delves into those gaps? Anyways, in Donor we begin with Elaina who is being hunted by a group of people who aim to take her back to the organization that she left behind. District 5 aims to exterminate Dresdan vamps because they don't understand them, and they can't be them. They attempt to create their own species/hybrid that's a cross between vamp and human. Those plans have been ...more

The dresdan are very powerful vampires. District 5 inc. Is an organization set to take vampires only they also test vampire blood on humans to make some kind of super human. Their not as good as they would like everyone to believe.
Elaina use to work for them, she knows the truth now and had to run. She has also fallen in love with a powerful dresdan named Vicq and he is in love with her.
(If you haven't read the prequel it covers this and wow is it hot)
Elaina had thought Vicq was killed and she

They are on the way to Vicq's secure compound when more District thugs attack them and capture Elaina. Vice rounds up some of his men to help him rescue

Recommends it for: PNR readers who love vampires
This story picks up where Prelude left off. Elaina is still in hiding and mourning her dead lover only to discover that he isn’t dead. They team up again to seek out answers and to keep each other safe and while both of those tasks prove to be quite daunting, they are still managing to persevere. As the story goes on, Vicq just seems to get sexier. While not exactly a cliffhanger, Donor does start asking some interesting questions and poses some interesting scenarios that I hope get answered, or ...more

Given to me for an honest review. I would suggest that you read this serial in order to really understand what's going on. Ms Monroe added enough of the back story so you can enjoy this book without reading Prelude Book 0. Elaina thought that she had hidden herself well, but obviously not well enough. District 5 hunters found her and plan to take her alive back to the District. Only a Dresdan plans to keep her safe by keeping her close to himself. Who is the Dresdan? Elaina wants to take down ...more

About 1 year ago, I got this book for free via Amazon, but I just couldn't get into it...

Today, I decided to give it another try, and I am so glad that I did..

Once I got past the first few pages, this book was not only engaging but it had a good flow as well.

The good: Creative world-building, touchable characters, steamy sex

The not-so-good: Considerable amount of lag in the beginning

Giving this one: 3 solid stars

Absolutely Fabulous!

One of the best vampire series I have read so far. I prefer this authors writing style better than almost any other. I love this series. Kept me on the edge of my seat. Plenty of plot twists and turns. I can't wait to read the next book in this series. I love the mix of action/adventure, suspense and romance.

This book is part of The Masters of the Hunt and so far it has not disappointed me.
I enjoyed the fast pace of this story line and the motivations that drive Elaina and Vicq. Got caught up in the action and the wicked romance. Looking forward to reading Prelude and Requiem
