Holey Guacamole! This book started off with one heck of a bang. Non-stop action right from the start had my adrenaline pumping and I loved the thrills this story provided. The Knights are still battling against the leeches and the war doesn't seem close to ending and so many lives are being lost. The streets are running red and the humans are dying out. Protecting them is a full time job for the Knights and eradicating the dens and the sires seems

This book was perfection!
It was dark, edgy, raw, engaging, compelling and addictive.

I absolutely adore the world that L.D. Rose has created, where Vampires have made their presence known and they've let human's know where they stand in the pecking order.
Humanity has retaliated by creating Hybrids (half-human/half vampire) each with their own unique abilities to fight against the vampires.

The Order of the Senary series by L.D. Rose keeps getting better and better. She continues to do an amazing job combining intriguing worldbuilding, and romance into a story and series that will own your mind and soul.

And addictive, intense, dark, deeply sensual read filled with characters I fell in love with from the minute they walked onto the page. I have wanted to be a part of their world and unique band of friends since I read the first book in the series.

L.D. Rose writes paranormal romance
You won’t just read this one, you will fall into it and feel it! L.D. Rose is keeping the throttle on the speed of awesome as she takes us back into the world of the Senary with VERMILION LIES.

Dax is one “icy-hot” hybrid, working with the Senary. When out on a mission to help out another hybrid group, he never expected the raging inferno of passion he would feel for one of his sworn enemies, a vampiress named Cindy. Little did he know she was more than a tormented woman fleeing her sire or the w

The books in L.D. Rose's Order of the Senary series just keep getting better and Vermillion Lies is the best one yet! Rose's writing sucked me in and had me on the edge of my seat all throughout Dax and Cindel's story. I love the way Rose combines romance, action, and the paranormal create Such an addictive story. The entire book is excellently paced and didn't have a single moment that felt slow. I highly recommend this series to fans of PNR. If you're not looking for a series, don't worry. Eac ...more

Omgggg this book was INCREDIBLE. I read it in a day and a half. The word is UNPUTDOWNABLE. Vermilion Lies, book 3 of the Order of the Senary, was a complete adrenaline rush. Completely action pack, intense, intriguing, suspenseful and unbelievably passionate. I devoured it and I’m already craving a re read.

L.D. Rose created a paranormal world that I was dying to be part of. Her writing style is impeccable. They way you get suck into this world, this incredible fights, it’s out of this world. Yo

I adore L.D. Rose’s The Order of the Senary series and have been bouncing in my seat waiting for Vermilion Lies. I needed more of the wonderful world, more of the characters I have come to love, and more of L.D. Rose’s addictive storytelling.

Thus, I jumped straight into Vermilion Lies and devoured it in no time at all.

In truth, it took me slightly longer to get into Vermilion Lies than it took me to get into the prior books in the series. Once I was sucked in, however, my experience was right up

VERMILION LIES is the third book in The Order of the Senary series, and I would highly recommend you read these in order.

This is Dax and Cindel's story. Dax we know from previous books, but Cindel is an unknown. It starts off with her running for her life. She hasn't had the 'best' of relationships, and wants to try out on her own. Fast forward, and we see how that turned out for her.

I thoroughly enjoyed this book, but not quite as much as the first two... and I don't know why. It was well-writt

In Vermilion Lies, Dax had been looking forward to a change in scenery almost as much as he was looking forward to taking out a high-profile target. It was going to be just what the doctor ordered for this mercenary and he couldn’t wait to get started. What Dax had expected to be business as usual quickly turned into something more when he found that things had gone a little sideways for him. He ended up dangerously compromised and conflicted about one lone vampiress who had attracted his attent ...more

Dax gets his big ol' frozen heart thawed out by a sexy little runaway. Oh my goodness this book, the narrative descriptive and the action so easy to visualize in my head so wonderfully written. Characters are well thought out and have just enough angst to make them interesting but not whinny, not to mention these guys have a pretty twisted sense of humor. The bad guys are evil, as they should be, and the good guys sometimes have to d

As this is the fourth book I've read and loved by Rose, she is an automatic buy for me. Like her previous books, Vermillion Lies has all of the components for a paranormal urban fantasy romance: A very complex yet relatable H/h, a wild ride of a plot with twists and turns that make sense, and steamy sex/love scenes that don't take away from the story, but rather, enhance it.
Dax and Cindy made an awesome couple, and Dax's brothers and friends revealed more of their close bonds as the story progr

I’ve been waiting for a minute for the next book in the series, especially with how Black Bullet ended, and Vermilion Lies did not disappoint! With a few pages things were off and running and I was all in to see what would happen between Dax and Cindel as what would happen to those they hunted, and who hunted them. It was dark, gritty, sweet and smexy and filled with character ~ the good, the bad and the ugly ~ that kept me turning the pages until the very end and has me wanting

I was left absolutely speechless when I finished Vermillion Lies by L. D. Rose. She has packed more action, love, and dark paranormal in this book then you would think is possible. Once you start it you won’t be able to put it down. This story about Dax and Cindel is very intense. They are supposed to be enemies, but they both become lovestruck. They end up not only fighting the attraction to each other but are battling with the rogue vampires to protect the hu

In hindsight, I should have re-read the series. I realized I had forgotten so much. In the just the first few pages, I was feeling like I needed a re-fresher.

I spent at least the first half of the book wanting to punch Dax in the face. And Cindel would just never do what I wanted her to do. LOL. I love it when that happens. I want to read the stories that don't go the way I think they should. I want to be dropped into a place that's really outside of my head. Thank you.

This is book 3 in The Order of the Senary series and it's Dax Knight's story. Dax is in New England helping to battle the vampire forces. Cindel is a vampire who is on the run from her sire.
When Dax and Cindel meet the attraction is instant and intense.
This book has it all - action, suspense, paranormal and passion and just like the first 2 books in the series this one will suck you in.

An action-packed thrill ride of epic proportions! This is right up my alley in the supernatural realm with the terrific writing and electrifying storyline. Bloody mayhem abounds as the vampire queen, Cindel, runs from the omnipresence of the evil Russian vampire king and her sire, Alek, and ends up in the arms of a swoon-worthy hybrid, Dax. What a sizzling pair they are after he gets over her being a leech and she learns to trust him and becomes his Cindy. This is the first story I've read in th ...more

What I enjoy most about this series is it's continuity. Each book focuses on a new perspective, a new plot, however links back to the previous characters therefor giving more depth and meaning. Vermilion lies' plot follows Ciny/Cindel discovering herself. Cindy starts as a shy "used,tortured" soul, however by the end she is a new woman, all thanks to Dax and his guidance.

Cindel is a very tortured character, broken from years of abuse, feeling beaten and worthless. That is until she meets Dax, a

Help. I've suffered a book coma! Vermilion Lies left me reeling and has ruined me for all other vampire themed books. If you're looking for a super fast paced, gut punching novel, this is the one for you.

VERMILION LIES is book #3 in The Order of the Senary series. I suppose each book could be a standalone but reading the series in order really enhances the storyline.

Cindel, a vampiress in an apocalyptic world, is on the run from her brutal husband/sire. She's basically escaped one prison for another, though, since her new captor is her pimp. So when she meets a Knight of the Senary, Dax, she desperately convinces him to take her. Dax is a hybrid, part vampire, part...something else. He takes Ci

Vermilion Lies is the third book in the Order of the Senary series written by author LD Rose. Even though each book centers on a different couple, I believe it’s best to read the series from the beginning. This will allow you to have the background knowledge to fully appreciate and understand Dax and Cindel’s story.

Dark, gritty, fast-paced PNR!
Vermilion Lies is set in a dark and gritty world of vampires and the hybrids who are humanity's last hope. The world-building is detailed and the writing is stellar--I felt like I was in the book, living the story along with Cindel & Dax.
Cindel will melt your heart as she slowly comes into her own power after escaping her abusive sire and finds love with Dax.
If you like your paranormal romance dark and edgy, this book is a must-read.

Vermilion Lies by L.D. Rose a four-star read that will rock you. This is the third novel in the Order of the Senary but each one can be read as stand-alone, but in my opinion I would advise reading them in order as I have and I feel I have gotten the most of them this way. This is fast paced and brutal at times the pace is so quick, it will leave you breathless. This one will have you wanting to be violent to a certain character as well as imagining the brutal violence that this story is full of ...more

L.D. Rose does an excellent job with this book. While it may be the 3rd installment of this series, Vermillion Lies can be read as a stand alone. In all actuality, it makes me want to go find the other 2 and read them. Not because I'm missing something, but because the storyline is captivating and the writer is very talented in drawing you in.

Dax brings to mind "Cool Hand Luke" on so many levels. Tough, disciplined, but still a rebel at heart.

Another great book from the Order of the Senary. The world the author creates is complex, full of action and mistery surrounding the members of the Senary, very deadly vampires and innocent humans. This time Dax is on a mission working with the Trinity and hell breaks loose when he kills one of the bad guys and takes a hostage with him. There’s so much action and suspense but also fun and loving characters. Things explode (vampires included) and the war between the vamps and the hybrids is in fu ...more

FINALLY!! Dax's book!!!

L. D. Rose writes action-packed, paranormal romance. A genre I don't typically read, but cannot get enough of when they're written by her.

Vermilion Lies is literally a can't-put-down, stay-up-all-night-reading kind of book. It's addictive, fast-paced and captivating.

Dax and Cindel's story left me breathless and in complete awe of Rose's talent.

While this series of books can be read as standalones, I STRONGLY suggest going in order so you don't miss a single thing.

 I received this book in exchange for an honest review. I have given this book four out of five stars ⭐️⭐️⭐️ I've really enjoyed learning about the vampire and hybrid world that L.D. Rose has created. One of my favourite parts is how each book continues from the previous one. They focus on different characters, plot and world building however they all manage to link back to the previous characters from the other books.
