DNF @ 38%



It seems a crime to mark this as 'DNF' when on the surface, it seems like something I'd really enjoy. The cover is hot, exactly what I'd expect a vampire erotica to look like. The premise is deliciously trashy, like something I'd expect to see in the halcyon days of Quizilla: a vampire queen gets not one, but two vampire mates who want to serve her in ~every way possible~.



The opening of this book, when the heroine is on the run being chased by demonic creatures who want her blood, made me think I was into something good. It actually reminded me a bit of the manga, BLACK BIRD, which is about a girl whose blood calls to demons and all of them want to eat her or have sex with her or both, including her dubious demon guardian/friend, Kyo.



The story - and the writing - fall apart when her knights enter the mix. I'm not sure what happened, or why it didn't work for me. This book was trying so hard, what with its sex positivity and the woman being in power despite being sexually inexperienced. I wanted to like it... it just didn't work.



If you enjoy porn with plot (even if it's only a thinly veiled plot) and menage erotica where the men, to borrow my friend's phrase from her review, happily "cross swords," this is probably a good read for you. It didn't really work out for me, but I got it for free, so I guess I'm only out my time.

Maddy I agree with everything you said in your review. I had been really looking forward to reading this (and the cover is fab!) but it was a let down. I managed more than you did...but it all blurred and was unfortunately not very engaging.

Thanks, Maddy!


Kimi That's so sad. I love the series. It's one of my favorites. But yeah it's not for everyone.

Tbh, that was something else about it that made me want to read it, haha. I'm a huge fan of chess and bad puns.
