In this book, it's human who are the endangered species. That's new. The fae, vampires and magi each rule different parts. Sidney is the daughter of Lord Henry and had to get married by the age of 25, that is the law. She is to become the next ruler. Sidney is a warrior, not a lover, so anyone she has come across really is not interested. Her dad finds her a human named Jamie, who looks pretty on the outside, but he is not a nice person at all. The only male Did has ever even liked was her best ...more

This book is amazing! It's a love story wrapped in politics. And feel like some of the political issues kind of parallel what is happening in the U.S. right now with women's rights being threatened.

Sydney is the daughter of, essentially, the mayor of San Fransisco. Her father, a widowed gypsy, married a Fire Fairy and the relationship gave way to Sydney. He was best friends all of his life with the King of Los Angela's, a Vampire named William, who married Sydney's mother's best friend. King Wil

I want to start by saying that I loved this book. I loved that humans are the endangered species and that humans are aware of and know that other species exist like vampires, werewolves, fae ect…. I loved that all species worked together in keeping the world turning.

Some of the things that I didn’t like were that humans or human women were the property of first their father and then their husband. Women are not allowed to be in control of their own lives they must do exactly as they are told or

I was asked to read this book based on a brutally honest review I had left of the authors first book written “Moondance”
I agreed to not allow what most would consider shortcomings sway me, and began to read.
A book where humans are the “lesser race” and supernaturals run the world. Higher technologies and futuristic appeals mixed with very old world laws and rituals. I couldn’t put it down!
My ONLY complaint is I wish there was a bit more elaboration on some of supernatural aspects. I

This is my second Ms King and I have to say I really loved it. Star crossed love, best friends, abusive family, oppression from old laws, oppression merely being a woman.... this book has all of it with a heavy side of what is going to happen next. Wonder read that as you go along you can actually put yourself in each character’s shoes when you are reading from their POV. Leaves you on the edge of your seat waiting to see if maybe they can find a Happily Ever After. Appreciate that the character ...more

Despite this story's many problems, I found the storyline to be one which held my interest and I found myself wanting to know what happens next. And after all, that's what is important, isn't it?

What an awesome new world Desiree King had thought up for this story. With a mix of all creatures that make us think of them when something goes bump in the night in this book it is sure to please just about everyone. It is so hard to find a vampire book that is new and fresh that will hold my attention but this one didn't disappoint. I can't wait for the next one.

Omg what a story ...

This is the first book I have read by Desiree King. Miss King has a fantastic way with words. She brings in the sexism in the old ways were women were just property. How the hierarchy can do anything they won't and be damn with anyone who gets in the way. The storyline is in the future with supernatural.
Sidney the princess of San Diego. Darien the prince of LA. They had been friends since birth, kept away from each other til 17. Anne is Sidney's PA and best friend. Colin is D

Again I find myself wishing we could give half stars.
OMG what a wonderful story! Really LOVE it. The characters are beyond worth following, and even the bad guys are able to grab and not let go. For anyone who editing will bother read with caution, as this book does need a good read over. But it doesnt take away from the story at all. This story has everything from magic, to vampires, other magical races, mystery, romance, steam, and just about everything you can imagine. And yet it does NOT fe

I love the world created in this story. Other species are now commonplace among humans and mostly getting along. However, there is always strife. Darien and Sidney's story is an amazing beginning to the inter species relationship questions posed. Their assistant's Colin and Anne bring an interesting element as well. I am anticipating more stories in this world.

I have literally spent all of my free time the last few days reading this book. I was so tired last night but it was Soo hard to put down. I absolutely loved it, I thought the characters were intriguing and amazing. I loved the fact that one of the characters, Darien I think it was, used the word douche canoe. This has been my new favorite here lately, before I started reading this book, and I thought I was the only one who used it lmao. It really was a well written page turner. Definitely an ad ...more

A very good read, first foray into Desiree King, and I am very happy to report I enjoyed it completely.
The world has changed dramatically, humans are now a race that is on the brink of extinction, Vampires, shifters, fae, elves and other magical creatures have come out of the shadows and taken control.
This story introduces you to a young woman named Sidney, a strong beautiful young woman destined to be the leader of her fathers province, and Darien the beautiful deadly dark vampire Prince. The p

What an awesome book!! I totally enjoyed it!!
What a decision Sidney has to make for her people. She has always loved the Dark Prince and has been told she has to give him up because of the New World Order laws.
Darien is not willing to let her go.Will he follow his love for Sidney or will he let her go?
I would recommend this book to all my friends
