This was my first read by Sarah and I can’t help but feel horrible for not getting to it sooner. I fell in love with the characters almost at first sight and I’m having major withdrawals just thinking about them. This is a paranormal book about other kin and humans living together on Earth, without secrecy. There’s still bad blood between some but we get to see a different take on the paranormal and I enjoyed every second of it. We see how they make cohabitation work and it was a nice treat.
We follow Ares, a (very handsome) vampire who is wary of everything and anyone that gets too close to him or the Detective he works for. Well, he’s an unpaid assistant but no matter. I loved how realistic his actions and reactions were to those around him. He’s one of those characters that you can’t help but yearn to unravel piece by piece in order to cherish every little thing you find. This was the case with all of the magnificent characters that made an appearance but Ares is number one on my list. I just can’t get him out of my mind! I’m rooting for his happiness so hard…
We also follow Alexandria, the Detective’s niece, who dresses in a very eccentric way. I loved how adorable her personality was. She was the full package: smart and beautiful inside and out. We get to witness how her presence sets forth certain events that I NEVER saw coming. I never thought the story would go the way it did but I’m not complaining at all.
This book gave me a serious dose of angst since I couldn’t help but ship two certain characters with all I have and things just aren’t going my way. Sarah, I hope you know what I’m talking about and grant my wish on the next book! (Please.)
Sarah’s writing made it effortless to get lost into this world and its characters. I’m seriously yearning for more, especially Ares! *Heart eyes*
