I admit, I have been a little burned out on PNR this past year. I adore Larissa Ione's books, so reading this was a no-brainer for me, but I admit I was reluctant because I just can't get excited over vampires anymore. That being said, I felt this was an awesome start to a new series! I was entirely engaged from start to finish, and couldn't put the book down once I started. The romance was super hot, the tension was well built, I just really enjoyed the places the story went. Additionally, there is enough unique spin on the vampires and their origin stories that I didn't feel like I was just reading more of the same. And by the time I was done, I was really excited for the next book in the series. Go, Larissa Ione!
