Immortality sucks.

Eclipse has everything he could wish for, yet when he meets a little street urchin with a big mouth on the verge of death, he can’t help but be intrigued.

I really loved this book! It doesn't happen often that you run into a m/m novel that has a story, action, and steamy vampires. But what I like best is the witty dialogue that brings the characters to life.

Wow! This story was absolutely amazing. It is every thing I ever wanted in a mm vampire book. I was instantly hooked from the moment I started this story. It never once dragged or bored me. We follow Silas a street kid from the New Orleans Bayou as he navigates his life as a newly turned vampire. He struggles with his new life of luxury and wealth following the rules of vampire society and his pull for wanted to keep his old human life

Loved it

Rarely do I give a 5 star but this book hit all the right notes for me.Characters were well developed as was the history into the vampire world. Loved the snarky sassy human and the patient tolerant vampire. Lots of humour but not over the top. A lot of mm genre books seem to focus on the wham bam thank you Ram And if that is what a reader likes then this may not be for everyone...that being said,I might've liked a little bit more smut...But still loved it. I would recommend this book

This was an okay book. I feel like my expectations might have been set a little too high for it though.

It wasn't bad per se, there are some grammar and spelling errors littered throughout the book, though they personally didn't bother me too much. My biggest gripes involved our MC Silas, who is in his early twenties (I'm pretty sure they gave his exact age but I can't recall, like 22 or 23), yet proceeds to act far younger and his voice comes across as very juvenile. He makes poor decisions and

Not bad but.....

This book was well written and it was engaging.. I think the thing that is throwing me is that these vampires seem to human for me.. where is the super speed, the strength, anything that says their vampire but the immortality...I thought this was going to be something dark and vampires fighting or something but it’s not... now what really kept me reading was the humor in this book is LOL funny.. I like Silas enough he’s a little annoying tho and Eclipse doesn’t seem like an all
I enjoyed this book and at times couldn't wait to find out what happens next. I like the street urchin taking in by a rich vampire. Most of the times this book leaned heavier on the rich guy taking in a poor one. Silas read a great deal younger than his age and often felt like a bratty teenager than a true love interest to Eclipse. It is also really hard to believe that Silas is a naive as he is after being on the streets for all of his life. The one thing that really bothered me was the Remy ...more

Killer Urban Fantasy

What a wild ride! Sexy vampires? Check! Intrigue? Check! Slow burn romance? Check! While I enjoyed this book, I will say that I had a hard time relating to Silas. I felt like he was 2 years old at times. Silas is young, it's true, but also immature to the extreme. He fell into a almost perfect situation, but rebelled constantly. The other unbelievable thing was all the ado about Reme. Why did Eclipse just take the other boy, too? Made him a servant or kept him close

This is the first book in the Himura Saga

Man this was such a good start to a new Vampire series I adore all of these characters even the bad one's and Silus such a contrasting character at times I wanted to scream at my kindle for the stupid things he did than at other times I understood what motivated to do those things . Than there's Remy although life has been so shitty to him to took care of Silus since he was practically a toddler on the streets and homeless . But I have to wonder can Remy

No Thanks

First there are typos, grammatical and syntax errors and so on and so forth.Here is a particularly egregious one, "blinding light blinded him" The author would also make you aware of something and then do the exact same thing a second time as if it were the first time. Aaaahhhhhh! Meanwhile, cool characters suffer and we along with them.

I wanted to like this but I couldn't stand the characters. Everyone is so flat and unlikable.
