When it comes to erotic vampires, I believe this series is now my all time favourite. Between Shara's lethal powers and her snark, I am in love with her. It isn't just her Blood who want her. Powerful women can not help but desire her too. She calls others to her because she is the one everyone has been praying for ... someone who can bring justice back into their world. And she will payback in ruthless retribution. Each book in this series just gets better and better. I am not sure how Ms. ...more

Vampires, Aztec mythology, magic, shapeshifters and POWER!

This series has so many great parts! Sometimes a bit cringe-worthy, but I have to admit, I am extremely fascinated by the story. It also slightly bothers me that the Blood keep telling Shara that “ You could kill me right now and it would be my pleasure”. Ehm.. lets pull down that a notch because it’s repeated quite often. Like I know she is your everything, but give her a little fight?

The last half of the book was by far the best. It

Just when I think these books can't get even better Joely throws in a new surprise and my mind is totally blown. Shara is one kick butt main character and it is awesome to follow her along her journey into a remarkably powerful vampire queen. All her Blood combine nicely to form a group that will make anyone happy and they say they protect her so sweet. From nothing to a court of hundreds in a month is

Do you know the feeling you get when you try to review a truly amazing book?
Naturally, you want to write a review that does it justice, but it’s hard guys, really hard. Firstly, I’m no way near as talented with words as Joely Sue Burkhart is. Secondly, I’m still processing all the

This series gets better with every book! Plenty of betrayal, intrigue and action in this one - to go with the filthy delicious MMF & MFM Sexy times.

I really loved this one ... probably my favorite so far. The vampire politics moved to the forefront, and were fascinating. I am really enjoying watching all the threads of this plot unfold.

Gods.. That was... I just... Damn.
That fucking hurt, but in the best possible way. And Shara? She was magnificent, there is no other word for it. She certainly came a long way from that scared girl she used to be. She became so empowering, so in her element, it was an amazing thing to watch. I just couldn't tear my eyes off the pages, I had to soak it all in as fast as possible.
So much has happened here that I still cannot wrap my head around. I need some time to process everything...

BLOOD is an intrinsic part of this story and its characters. If you are NOT SURE you’re comfortable with blood + sex and bisexuality I would recommend you step with caution in this book. If you just CAN’T stand the idea, DON’T read this book.

If you HAVEN’T READ the books, this review will inevitably have some kind of SPOILER, since this is the 4th book in the series.

I was calling this book the final showdown but I was wrong, this was just the beginning of the final showdown

Yes!! Shara is tired of the crap and is taking ass and kicking names! I am riveted! I’ve always hated when our kick A heroine is always sleeping and passing out after battles. I always feel like umm hello some dudes in the back are still standing get your powerful girl butt off the floor. The author has taken this into consideration and written in reasons!

Shara has really blossomed and is now playing the game in her snarky I bring monsters to heel way! Her show down with Marne and house of sky

This series keeps getting better and better. I'm a little heartbroken next installment, Queen Takes Checkmate, will the last...

Shara and her Blood have blown my damn mind.
And that witch Skye has finally gotten hers.
I can't get enough. The series has been hot, gory, sexy, magical and so freaking good. The author's writing is spectacular and addictive.

Long freaking live Joely Sue Burkhart and her brilliant mind!

Read in one day. In addition to lots of steamy scenes, the overall plot arc moved forward as we finished up in Mexico and moved on to the battle between House Isador and House Skye. We got our first peek at Marne Ceresa who will probably be Shara's opponent in the next book.

We are getting to the good stuff with Keisha. This is getting better and better with the mother and Ra. I have been wondering does she need a God to get pregnant? I was just thinking can't wait to find out what happens next.

Well let me tell you this: have you ever read a book, where it takes you just the first paragraph and your addicted? If no then this is your book. Joely sue Bukart takes you in an adventure on this fourth installment, you will love it, you will laugh, be intriged and she’d a couple of tears. But one thing I will tell you, you will never regret buying this series. And you know was even better there’s another coming out. I seriously cannot tell you how exited I was knowing this

I've fallen in love with these books since the very first page! A fresh take on vampires that is delicious, exciting and sexy! All the best ingredients for a vampire series. Something the genre is in desperate need of. Joely spins a tale of love and retribution. Bringing together a modern day kickass heroine with old as time mythology that just makes me beg for more!

Nothing more to say besides INCREDIBLE!!!

One of my favorites series in audiobook!!! I tried to read these books in between and I immediately missed Tristan and Cassandra's voices haha. I instantly purchase these, there is no need to worry if they will be amazing. The answer is always YES .

So Tristan and Cassandra were on point for this audiobook. I loved the New Yorker accent that Cassandra surprised us with. I equally loved the new twins' voices from Tristan. I will say there were a couple
