Review of book 1, Alasdair

A TRAGIC BEGINNING…

Isadora Nikitas understands what it means to be betrayed. That lesson was taught to her in the prime of her life, and when she is offered a chance to exact revenge, she finds it difficult to refuse.

Instead, she entrusts her survival to a mysterious vampire known only as DiomΓͺdΓͺs, a male who wants nothing in return but to watch over her—in every way imaginable.

Gifted with speed, strength, and immortality, she determines that her life will no longer be governed by the needs and wants of a mere man. She has cowered for the last time, and with her Ancient by her side, she thrives and blossoms into the most formidable female vampire in existence.

But, once upon a time, like all little girls, Isadora believed in love. She believed it because she once had it. So, when it comes along a second time, she knows that it’s possible—but when you love someone, they become your weakness. Unless, in fact, they become your enemy instead…

A MYSTERIOUS PAST…

Fulfilling your life’s prophecy should be empowering. At least, that’s what Elias Fontana always believed. But, as he stands guard over the beautiful vampire he’s taken hostage, his convictions start to crumble. Made to believe by his creators that he and two others have been designed to destroy a dangerous race, he has difficulty connecting his current reality to the woman he once loved.

A TANGLED TALE TO UNRAVEL…

When friends become enemies and enemies become lovers, who can you trust in the webs of lies and despair? And, when your life is at stake and blood has been shed, how much are you willing to sacrifice to fulfill your destiny?

MY REVIEW

Although we still see a lot of Leo and Alasdair in this book (what... did you think their story was over???), this book primarily centered around Isadora and Elias. Like Alasdair and his Leo, Isadora is the one Elias is tasked to take out and he's the descendant of Artemis (Leo is from Apollo and Paris is from Hades). Eventually we see that these two share a history. A history full of love. And the love that these two shared never died and they both attempt to find a way to be together despite all of their obstacles. Despite what Elias has done to Isadora and Thanos, Diomedes grudgingly welcomes him and gives him a chance to earn their trust.

Goodness, the histories of these vampires breaks my heart. Each view we get is another glimpse into their humanity and I realized that Diomedes may be the most compassionate and "humanistic" character of them all.

The end gives a lead in to Book 3, which will be about Thanos, and we see that Eton is brokenhearted. I can't wait to find out more about these particular men and how they came to find each other.
