Would you risk it all for love? A high-ranking official’s daughter, Solaris is wild and reckless, a daredevil with no regard for authority. For icy Kaige, the nocturne prince of Draconis, life is discipline and self-control. A prophecy split their worlds in two—a decree issued outlawing all human and vampire contact. Death is the consequence for crossing the dark divide between Imera and Draconis. When their worlds collide, a dangerous and forbidden string of events unfold. Bound together by blood and secrets, they make a startling discovery that could shatter the precarious balance of New Isos. Haunted by the words of the prophecy, Solaris and Kaige attempt to unravel the mystery they’ve stumbled upon, but every moment spent together threatens the very existence of each race. Can Solaris and Kaige discover the truth without triggering the century old prophecy and destroying both their worlds?
Not Your Typical Vampire Story
In DARK FATES, there's a prophesy that keeps the humans and vampires separate out of fear. It is said that a human/vampire relationship will bring on a war and the end of the world. Everyone believes this prophesy and human/vampire contact is forbidden, especially for the vampire prince Kaige.
When he discovers a human about to die from a plane crash, Kaige saves her in order to get answers out of what she's up to. The only way to save her is by giving her some of his blood, but neither of them expected a bond to form. Solaris never expected to meet a vampire, but Kaige is her only hope for survival and to get back home. The only question is if her trust is misplaced because vampires are dangerous and don't care for humans.
At first, I have to admit that I thought this was going to be another cliche vampire/human romance, but I was pleasantly surprised. I love everything about DARK FATES and cannot wait for the second one. There was action, romance, betrayal, and prophesy. I love every scene with Solaris and Kaige and the humor in their interactions. Solaris is fierce and her personality is so badass.
Final Verdict: I would recommend this to fans of vampires, paranormal romance, and prophesy.
