Raven isn’t thrilled about ruling with Rhyland, but if she doesn’t step up to her title, the chaos, rebellions, and murders taking over the vampire wo ...more
I haven’t read a Jessica Sorensen read in a long time. She’s the kind of author where you start a book and you keep on reading her books for days. I’ll probably binge read this series because she knows how to hold your interest.
I was in a YA PNR mood and this book hit all the marks with me.
Feisty Young Heroine.
Mysterious Hero obviously interested in the Heroine
Raven is your typical girl… right? She’s ordinary with ordinary powers, it’s her sister that is ...more
I can't say how to do a great world building. But I feel Jessica Sorensen is only throwing weird vampire society rules out at random instead of giving those out in a logical manner that makes it sounds convincing . Hard to explain well this is only book 1 soooo
That cliffhanger ending ..... not convincing. It feels like it is thrown in for the sake of needing a cliffhanger. There were no clues or hints prior to let the readers make some guesses or susp ...more
Even though I've read and loved all of Jessica's books, I was a little bit hesitant with this one. I planned on reading it at some point, but it seems like vampire stories often become a repeat of a story that I've read before. It's all been written before. Or so I thought....
Wow! Just wow! I cannot wait for the next one. Will Raven figure it out in time? Why was Rhyland always so mean? What is the fae queen up to? So many questions!!! I cannot wait for the next book!
Raven was a normal Vampire until she found out she's the vampire queen, the most powerful vamp out there & Her childhood Enemy is the king..
Things go seriously south when she found life she knew was lie... That she has a curse & is living the same life - born, oppressed, crowned queen, death - for unknown times..
& Everyone she knew is lying- they know... she has to find a way to get t ...more
I wasn't expecting to love this book as much as I did. It started off very typical with the main character pulling the woe-is-me card and having no friends. What happened after that blew everything out of the water. Though I would love it if the author had gotten this book through a few more rounds of editing.
I liked Raven. She's the type of character that I see myself in if I were ever in her shoes. She's suspicious and questions everything. She wants explanations for ( ...more
Book 3 ..... -shakes head- this book is horrible, they are still stuck exactly where they were, very little ac ...more
Rating: 4.5 stars
Super Cute PNR YA Book with vamps and teens
NEGATIVE > Light disappointment about the way the lead female is constant kept out of the loop!
The characters read a bit the same as the Capuring Magic Series by Jessica Sorensen I have read last week. And this book also contains a female character that is kept out of the loop. while other characters let her know they know more. It was annoying in with the Capuring Magic books and it was frustrating to read in this ...more
This story is absolutely awesome! I am not a huge vampire storyline girl. Nope not at all but I recently read Forever Violet by the same author and oh my stars it was good. So yeah, read this synopsis and liked the tangled love story and dove in. Sorensen did it again. The book is true to the synopsis but it also has so much more. Seriously didn't see the back story at all. Didn't even see the surprise turns until I was gripping my kindle hanging on for the next "page". ...more
I definitely recommend this book. I was actually surprised. I was expecting some mediocre romance with vampires and what I got was a book that tempted me into its plot, intrigue, romance, characters, and mystery. I'm looking forward to book 2 where, hopefully, Raven gets all the answers to her questions.
(view spoiler)[ The world building was rather lacking. We only got tid bits of information about how things function in this world. Q ...more
I was looking for a new book and decided to check and see what Jessica had available and came across this and it happened to be free with kindle unlimited so I figured I would give it a try. I loved the shattered promises books and have read them all more than once so I knew I would love this. I was right. As soon as I started reading I was hooked. From the first chapter I was enthralled with the story of Raven. The world in which this story takes place isn't really explained well so ...more
I'm also confused at what the synopsis says: And Fate has a twisted sense of humor because it chose Rhyland Midnitegale as king, who just happens to be her sworn enemy.
The book does not say anything about Rhyland being an enemy. He has this bored face on him and his character just doesn't click. Also, there's way too much mystery it started to feel confu ...more
This book is short like it ends abruptly not a"OMG ,WTF" Cliffhanger but a "Gah,now I have to wait for the next book" Cliffhanger.*yes there's a difference*
Now where were we ya the plot,Raven unexpectedly becomes a queen and her nemesis becomes her king.Now she has to cope up with the disaster and be a nice vamp queen.Then there's a matter of the curse which btw is the loop of above process.How she stops the curse you have to read the other books it seems.
This plot has a lot of potentia ...more
I enjoyed this book. I found while looking for something to pass the time with. To my surprise I stumbled across a great read. I love how right up till the end Raven fights her fate. What I didn't like was how short the book was. I don't mind cliff hangers but I do expect more when I pay for a book. If you can read this one for free its a great start to what could be an epic story. I will read the next book because I'm curious how Jessica is going to spin this tale. Ravens g ...more
I just don't like it. How do I put it in words? I don't enjoy it as ...more
I liked the story because it had humour and you want to know what will happen next. You want an explanation for everything. I advice people to read this book, but wait till there are more books from this series because it will be a long wait with a lot of questions.
At the moment I both love and hate Jessica Sorensen. Don't get me wrong, she is an amazing and talented writer who is definitely in my Top 10 Favorite Authors, but she is killing me. I need book 2. I fall into her books from page one everytime then have to wait for the next book. I don't have that much patience!! This was an amazing story and I can't wait to see what happens next.
Boy was I ever thrown for a loop toward the end of this story and I loved ever second of it. Every single book Sorensen has written seems to be in a class of their own. She's very good at creating believable characters that you want to keep following. I loved this particular story BC it deals with paranormal and Royalty. This book definitely will leave you wanting book two!
This wasn't an all time greats kinda read, but I did enjoy this book. I had a theory about where it was going, but I can honestly say I was hella impressed with the twist, did not see it coming, at all. This for me in an age of easily predictable plot lines I think, is pretty impressive.
3.75 and onto book two!
I surprisingly enjoyed this book far more than I expected. There are few times that twist endings or cliff hangers shock me. This one came as a surprise. While Violet hopes for fate to change her path and I curse the obvious secrecy of her King, the larger story went by glaringly apparent in hindsight. If you like the look of Kings and Queens in fantasy realms, give it a shot. And remember what you know about the fey.
