“He wouldn’t understand. He didn’t live in a pretend world. In truth, he did. Most beings, pure humans, walked around thinking they were the only type of people that existed.” –Alena As a creature forbidden by both vampire and witch cultures, Alena traverses the country with her mother in search of an unknown entity. When Alena finds Hunter everything changes. Their bond may be the key to answers Alena seeks. As she investigates the connection, an equally handsome, but mysterious suitor appears. Will the truth be uncovered before it is too late? Or will her Mother’s kingdom be reduced to embers?
Kingdom of EmbersFeatured
This book is told from Alena’s POV, who is a half vampire, half witch, and her kind is illegal because they are too powerful. I really like the mystery surrounding her father, what her mother was searching for, and her situation with her friend Hunter. There was no much that Alena didn’t know about herself or what her family was doing. This book will keep you guessing and the plot will keep you interested. The characters were great, especially Hunter. I really liked watching Alena’s relationships grow throughout the book, and also how she grew as she learned more about herself and what she could do.
What I Didn’t Like:
There were several potential love interests, I couldn’t help but feel bad for them when it was clear she wasn’t going to pick them. All of the characters were so great, it was so hard to dislike any of them.
The Final Verdict:
This was a great start to the series and it set the next books up to be even better as all of the mystery starts to unravel and they set out to solve some of the problems that we learned about in this installment.
