Fatal Harmony is the first book in The Vein Chronicles series by Anne Malcom. I have never read anything else by this author, and what a tragedy that is! I was completely blown away by this amazing story!

Isla’s upbringing and basically her entire life story broke my heart. She has endured so much in her lifetime, and I just want her to be happy. There is social unrest amongst the members of the supernatural community, and they are throwing a wrench in her aforementioned happiness

This book was A-M-A-Z-I-N-G! If I could give it more than 5 Stars I would. It physically hurts that I have to wait for book two. I am thisclose to going all Kathy Bates alá MISERY on this author because I NEED answers dammit! I'm not above begging...just saying...

Where do I begin? Really anything I write here won't come close to doing this book justice. The writing was PHENOMENAL. The World building EXCEPTIONAL. The character development FANTASTIC. The plot was COMPLEX and FAST PACED.

Fatal Harmony: is the first book in a new supernatural series by Anne Malcom, we've established this genre is me totally out of my element, and my first read by this author, so on both counts this was my first rodeo!!

Isla is a hardcore take no prisoners kick ass vampire, she's a Rominskitoff which makes her from one of the greatest families of their race. She's the kind of girl you'd want covering your back the non vampire side though, because she's got no tole

This book was incredible!! It you're a fan of the paranormal and this book ISN'T on your radar, ADD IT!! It's got vampires, slayers, tons of action scenes, vampire politics, scheming and betrayals. And there's lots of fighting and blood and gore and sarcasm and witticisms and other fun stuff.

Ok, so the main character was Isla and the story is told entirely from her perspective. I had a real love/hate connection with this girl. She was narcissistic, arrogant, inconsiderate, insensitive, and downr

I’m not going to lie this book took me out of my usual comfort zone. I have these set rules in my head, I don’t read cheating, it has to have a happy ending, and if the book is paranormal romance, alien romance (anything with one character that is other/not human) the hero is the character that isn’t human the heroine has to be human. My theory in this is that I’m human (I know Ive just shocked some of you but it’s true) But with Anne Malcolm writing it I’m reading it. Now don’t’ get me wrong I’ ...more

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Isla stars!!

Thank you Fei for this rec.

I FLOVED this woman, This heroine was badass, a kick ass, a strong female lead and she can be a bitch but oh how loved her.

Dear Alex I think you should read this book this heroine reminds me a little bit of Lana!!

"Why try to fit in when you were meant to stand out."

A heroine who doesn't become an mumbling mess or gets wet when meeting hot men.

I have a fucking crush!

Did I mention that I loved this woman? She was witty and smartass.

This was a great paranormal romance but I just feel like something was missing. Maybe Isla and Thorne’s romance was too rushed? Maybe I wanted Isla and Rick to have a shot at romance?

Fatal Harmony is going to be the first book in my new supernatural series, The Vein Chronicles. I'm warning you now, it's long. And a cliffhanger. This tale is just too epic to be contained in one book. Or even two...

January 31st is when you get to start this wild ride. Preorders are live everywhere.

I freaking LOVED this book!! Anne Malcom is soo talented!!

I am totally in love with these characters. Isla is the most hated vampire in her entire race or so her family keeps telling her!! After many assassination attempts she is a strong sassy woman, who doesn't need any man to give her a hand! I loved Isla! She made the book for me, with her smart remarks and quick comebacks and the IDGAF attitude. Yeah she is definitely someone I would want to hang out with. Anne has written Isla beautifully

I am a sucker for paranormal romances.
Werewolves, Vampires, Witches, I just can't get enough of that genre.

When I read the synopsis for Fatal Harmony by Anne Malcom, I just knew this was going to be a kickass read. And I was right. I could not get enough reading this book, I was on the edge of my seat, biting my nails in anticipation for what was to come next.

Isla was BADASS!
She stood her ground and fought for what was right. Being a vampire she has loved and lost so many people in her lifet

What a way to fuck with my feelings.

Fatally Good

Fans of Debra Dunbar's Imp series should appreciate the scathingly irreverent humour of Isla, vampire extraordinaire and rebel to the end. This wonderful new series has me thirsting for more. Wanted woman by the King of the vampires as both a spy and as the woman he can't have, wanted by the leader of the New York slayers for sexy loving, and wanted for slaying by the rest of the slayers for death and retribution, and last but not least wanted by her family so they can either assa

Isla is a hoot... Strong, sassy mouth and funny!
She reminded me of Lana from Mindf*ck series that i really love.

She doesn't swoon all over when she sees a hot guy.. (thank god!)

The trio has a hot/cold dynamic that's nice but some how Thorne didn't grow on me!!! I'm team "Rick" all the way! (yeap, give me dark, teaser and dangerous *please*)

The books has a lot of pop/fashion/movie reference that are funny but a little over the top if you don't know them!
Suprisingly intrigued! All the catty banter did eventually get old but nice twist at the end kept me hooked. Definitely going to read book 2!

"You're a storm, a volcano, a fucking battle. Every day with you is a fight against an unstoppable force. Beauty."

What happens when you find a great book that happens to be about vampires, slayers, werewolves, demons, love and war? You stay up until late at night drinking as much caffeine as possible to finish reading before you crash and wake up to do it all over again. That's how fangtastic Fatal Harmony is! I couldn't get enough. I couldn't read fast enough. I dreamed, ate, breathed this book

This book has absolutely everything I want in a PNR story and a whole lot more.
Feisty, witty heroine ✅
Hot alphas ✅
Plenty of action ✅
Smoking hot chemistry ✅
Plenty of laughs, and quite a few tears ✅
Fantastic dialogue ✅
I could go on and on ....
I devoured this book in one session and was left staring at the wall wondering what the hell happened after the final scene. I think Isla may be one of my favourite book characters ever
Cannot wait for book 2

I wanted to love this book. It was recommended to me after loving Rhapsodic. This book is similar, but this main character is very shallow. She is materialistic and judgmental and in no way did I connect with her. She also tries waaaaaay too hard to be a badass. Constantly reminding the reader how she breaks all rules and doesn't care about authority. It got old, fast.
The romance is also hallow and is losing my interest, I've started skimming.

This book ends on a huge cliffhanger. I always check the ending before reading. I'm not going to read until the 2nd book is released. And if the 2nd book is expensive I'll just pass on the series. ...more
Full review to come at a later date because the series continues with the same couple. This was an awesome read! Very original!

This book absolutely destroyed me. I'm not the kind of person who likes PNR. Mainly, because I've never found one that captures my interest long enough to make it past the first few chapters. But, with Fatal Harmony, I never wanted it to end. I think there are only about 3 or 4 PNRs that I've loved in my entire life

Every time I finish a book my Anne Malcom, I’m convinced it’s my favorite. The I pick up her next read and BAM... it knocks the previous book out of the park.
Fatal Harmony might be my favorite book that Malcom has written. I love reading PNR books. They were and always will be my first love. Fatal Harmony had EVERYTHING I look for in the paranormal romance genre.

WOW. I did not expect to absolutely love this story as much as I did. (Is there a stronger word for love? because I'd sure as hell would want to use it right now.) This book was just mindblowing - I could not stop reading it. It was funny, sarcastic, endearing, enchanting, blah blah blah, keep them adjectives going. Vocabulary is important.

First paranormal book for this author...and she has killed it <---- vampires, killed it, get it?!!! Although I could slap her for the cliffhanger!

Isla: 'Evil doesn’t exist. Neither does ‘good.’ Vampires do, though. I just happen to be one.'

And what a vamp Isla is! Love her. Sarcastic, funny, sassy and cares more about her shoe collection than the woes of the supernatural world. That is until a slayer and a Vamp King enter her world!

King Rick and Thorne. With each chapter I denounce the other guy
