4 out of 5 Stars
Ahhh, forbidden love!
What would you do if you found out everything you believed about yourself to be a lie and the person who you fell in love with is not all they appear to be?
This is the case for Kate, a beautiful girl that doesn't know her true purpose in life. She is the heir to the Vampire throne and the savior of their race but does she know that, nope she doesn't find out until after she is saved by Dominic, a dark handsome stranger. They quickly fall in love but she finds that there is more to him that meet the eye. When she makes the change from human to vampire she feels lost and broken and betrayed.
Dominic is the dark handsome stranger but he is also a werewolf assassin sent to kill Kate before she reaches her destiny. What he doesn't expect is to imprint on her and fall desperately in love with her at first sight. He decides to go against his family and his kind to follow his heart, repercussions be damned. Will he end up losing it all when he finally tell Kate the truth not only about her but about himself as well?
Alex, oh poor Alex was promised Kate from the time of her birth. He has watched over her over the years and has grown to love her very much. He has been there for her since her change and is willing to wait to collect all of the pieces she is willing to give.
Will she choose love over family and betray her kind? Who is lying to her, who can she trust, and what will become of her?
I really enjoyed reading this story. Ms. Bright has given us slightly different spin on the Vampire and Werewolf kind has taken some of the lore from all different areas, but made it her own. It was nice to read a story that wasn't your normal cookie cutter vampire or werewolf novel. The characters were well thought out and presented and the story had a great flow to it. I was sad to see it end so quickly but I can only hope that we will be getting the rest of the story so I am keeping my fingers crossed.
