Isadora Nikitas understands what it means to be betrayed. That lesson was taught to her in the prime of her life, and when she is offered a chance to exact revenge, she finds it difficult to refuse.

Instead, she entrusts her survival to a mysterious vampire known only as Diomêdês, a male who wants nothing in return but to watch over her—in every way

Sexy Vampires,Greek Mythology,M/M/M, M/F, F/F and a bit of voyeurism..Hell Yes!!

Well,I loved Alasdair but I think I enjoyed this even more.This series has the perfect mix...a PNR story that's gripping and easy to follow and it's so erotic,the sexual tension is so hot!

This one picks up straight where book 1 ended It's,obviously,Isadora's story but for fans of hot m/m action don't worry because we get a LOT more of Alasdair,Leo and Vasilios.

My my, Ella Frank, what a twisted tale you weave. The Masters Among Monsters series continues with Isadora, and all the puzzle pieces from the previous books begin to slowly put themselves together. But while you get answers to some things, you're left with plenty more questions.

Truth be told, I struggled with my rating for a bit. Do I rate this for what it was or what I thought it would be? But Ella Frank has never been conventional, and she's not one to be put in a box. This series pro

Isadora is a terrific continuation to a great series. Ella Frank did it again. She gave us some strong creatures with or without fangs, with the sexual tension reaching high levels and the suspense driving us crazy. I loved every minute of it. The story was captivating and I easily devoured every word of it.

What a story!! I was so scared to begin Isadora. I remember I even sent my first message to an author after reading Alasdair. I wanted Ella to reassure me on the direction she wanted to take with this story. I have to laugh at myself right now because I should have never doubted her. What she did with Isadora was exactly what it needed to be.

Isadora starts exactly where Alasdair ends so if you have troubled remembering a few things, I suggest you read the last chapter and you'll be all set.

Isadora Nikitas is a beautiful and strong woman who experienced a crushing tragedy but her fate would have been much worse had it not been for Diomêdês. Since that time, Isadora became a powerful first sire to Diomêdês and while it has always been the two of them, Isadora feels an attachment to a human named Elias Fontana and wants a second chance for both herself and also to please the needs of her Ancient, Diomêdês.

I thought that I loved Alasdair but Isadora took my heart. Her story was so heartbreaking and I really felt sorry for her. I was really afraid that I wouldn't like her because she was not my favorite in the first book.

Her bond with Diomedes was very strong and beautiful. He also had a tragic ending before becoming a vampire.

We learn more about Elias and Isadora's past and why their relationship ended so abruptly. Even though Isadora is a 2,000 year old vampire, she has a sweet side also for th

When I ventured into the Masters Among Monsters series, it was 100% based on my faith in Ella Frank...not my enjoyment of the PNR genre. Well, Ella AND the promise of MM in this series. Though with PNR, I have a rather difficult time wrapping it around my very literal brain, I've found this series fairly easy to digest (I say that loosely). Aside for the Greek language (thank you so much, my Greek goddess Pavlina) which threw me a few times, I was able to keep up wi

God. Where to even begin…

You will need to keep a firm grip on your wits, emotions and panties while reading Isadora and forget every thought you had on what this book might be. It is not a conventional romance and it is definitely unlike any other PNR book I have ever read. Absolutely brilliant!

With Isadora, we pick up where Alasdair left off, right in the middle of the confrontation between Isadora and Elias. I loved Isadora as a character. She is strong and intelligent and in a world ruled b

Starting right where Alasdair ended, Isadora answers the questions Ella Frank so twisted-ly left hanging in book 1.

I’m not sure what else to say without revealing huge spoilers, so I’ll be exclusively talking about feelings and impressions. And if you haven’t read book 1, Alasdair, you should definitely read this one first or you would be lost (review here : Alasdair )

Oh, my god. OMG. Oh. My. God. I don't know what else to say, except those three words over and over and over. I've just now finished the incomparable Isadora, and I am crazy for this book. I binge read the entire thing today, and so many—so very, very many—times, I thought I didn't want it to end. I thought I loved the titular vampire and her passionate, interesting, compelling sire, Diomêdês. I thought that if I could read nothing but these characters ever again, I'd still be a very happy reade ...more

Against not only each other, but what they felt. Their relationship would never be accepted by society. They would be shunned and, if this woman was indeed betrothed to Isadora’s brother, likely executed for their grievous sin. ”

I am digging this series. Set in a richly imagined fantasy world, this story is the epitome of a well-crafted tale of paranormal romance, with strong ties to Greek Mythology. It’s unconventional in a way, but that’s what I like about it.

I’ve read a few reviews that mention the lack of Isadora page time, which is a fair point considering it’s her title book, yet, in truth, she’s lucky to feature in 40% of the whole story. But here’s the thing: this series has nine main characters, each

Although we still see a lot of Leo and Alasdair in this book (what... did you think their story was over???), this book primarily centered around Isadora and Elias. Like Alasdair and his Leo, Isadora is the one Elias is tasked to take out and he's the descendant of Artemis (Leo is from Apollo and Paris is from Hades). Eventually we see that these two share a history. A history full of love. And the love that these two shared never died and they both attempt to find a way to be together despite a ...more

This book picks up straight where Alasdair left off. Of course this is thr story of Isadora and her Ancient, Diomêdês. But not only, since we do get a lot (hot action) of Alasdair, Vasilios & Leo too, as well some of the third cousin Thanos.

I was captivated by Isadora’s story and was truly fascinated by the intense, and even caring, relationships between the Ancients and their first sired.

At the end of the 1st book, Alasdair, (here's my review) his story is not quite finished so upon learning that the 2nd book is titled, Isadora, it clicked then that each book, while focused on one character for the most part, actually moves the story forward in its entirety.

So here, we do learn more about Isadora, her past, her connection with her sire, her history with Elias and how tethered they are to each other.We're also learning more about ho

Masters Among Monsters is the epitome of a nonconventional PNR. The reason I only rated this 3 stars is purely due to my personal preference towards something more conventional.

First of all, there are simply too many POVs. Everyone seems to have their own voice in here. I don't even know who is the person I should be focusing on. I was expecting a romance between the female vap, Isadora and the vamp hunter, Elias. But that's not the case.

Let me again preface with this. Don't go into this sequel thinking the main focus will only be on vampire Isadora. Instead this literally starts where the first book ended and continues to delve into the central mystery of what a trio of "chosen" humans have to do with the destiny of three vampires.

As Meags has said, this series focuses on these three groups of three, each comprising a human and 2 vampires, and each with its own fascinating and titillating dynamic. Not a lot of question

With the way the last book ended, I needed this in my hands. While this is Isadora's book we do get a lot of Vas, Leo, & Alasdair as well. What I wish was that their story was finished in their book and this was all about Isa. Don't get me wrong, I loved reading about them but sometimes I felt like her story was getting overshadowed.

And can I be honest? The only reason I read this was for Vas, Leo and Alasdair. I wasn't sure if I wanted Isa's story but I did end up enjoying it a lo

Just when I thought this series couldn’t get any better, BAM! Isadora completely wowed me! This is book #2 in the series and it picks up right where Alasdair (book one) leaves you hanging. Alasdair was one of my top reads of 2015 and Isadora has secured her spot for 2016. And YES, you most definitely need to read this series in order or you will be thoroughly messed up.

Isadora starts right where Alasdair left off. Isadora is in big trouble. Alasdair and Vasilios are in the process of handling Leo. Thanos is barely hanging on.

There is an underlying mystery as to how the vampires are connected to the three friends Leo, Elias, and Paris. And it is all coming together in one unpredictable and dangerous conflict.

As I stated in my Alasdair review, I rarely read paranormal or vamp books anymore, but I am hooked on this series and these characters. This book is INTENS

Isadora is immensely erotic. It has a sex scene or two for everyone (M/M, M/F, F/F, M/M/M, etc.). Well played, Ms. Ella Frank, well played. I savored them all.

The storyline to Masters Among Monsters grows substantially in this book. Alasdair was über seductive. Isadora is just as sexually provocative, but it also lays major foundation in the mythology and exudes powerful feelings. The relationship between and background

OK so when I finished Alasdair, I was really excited to read Isadora, because lets face it, that book ended in a big cliffhanger. Also Alasdair was mostly about Alasdair, Leo and Vasilios, like 90% of it anyways. But I am not sure I can say the same about Isadora. I was expecting a lot more about Isadora and her sire Diomêdês and Elias. But only about 33% of the story belonged to them and the rest to Alasdair trio and a little part to Eton, Thanos and Paris.
