Black Bullet - ★★★★★
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 ...more

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.
This is the ...more
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.

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 ...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 ...more
Because it's better to die on your feet than live on your knees
I loved this book! I loved how well Dax and Cindel fit together. L.D. Rose's undeniable gift for creating strong unforgettable characters sent Vermilion Lies soaring to a 5 star read and one that I had a hard time putting down.
The book cover speaks volumes. Definitely tailored to fit the story and yummy as well. The visual and atmosphere of the scenes along the cold beach were my favorite. I can just picture turning around a...more
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 ...more
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 ...more
L.D. when it comes to Rome, woman, you are a tease!!
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 ...more
Dax and Cindy made an awesome couple, and Dax's brothers and friends revealed more of their close bonds as the story progr ...more
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 ...more

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 ...more
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.
If you pick this series up ...more
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.
L.D. Rose is a brilliant writer and her stories flow so well. I have enjoyed this series and will definitely b ...more
Cindel is a very tortured character, broken from years of abuse, feeling beaten and worthless. That is until she meets Dax, a ...more
I voluntarily reviewed an Advance Reader Copy of this book.
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.
Let's revisit my statement about book coma, shall we?
It's not uncommon for the author, L.D. Rose, to totally make me feel for the characters that she writes. She has a knack for writing f ...more
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 ...more

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.
Dax is a vampire hybrid and part of the Order of the Senary who hunts and kills the evil Strigoi, ...more
Dax is squatting in an abandoned building and finds himself with a vampire captive. A vampire he should have killed, but who ignites his curiosity. Who is she? What does her past hide? How can Dax NOT get her out of his mind?
Cindel does anything she can to survive and to outrun the past that haunts her. It lands her right into the arms of half-breed, Dax. But w ...more
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. ...more
Dax brings to mind "Cool Hand Luke" on so many levels. Tough, disciplined, but still a rebel at heart.
That is, if his heart was actually completely there ...more
The Order of the Senary is one of those series, that just gets better with each book. The first one was good, the second one was even better and now Vermilion Lies is the best one so far. :)
Set in a world where vampires are basically taking over and fighting back are genetically engineers vampire/human hybrids - the knights. Each book follows one of them. Vermilion Lies is the story of Dax. Dax is away from his brothers, in New England helping out. One of his Mis ...more
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.
