A review by Domoni.
I would like to thank the author for providing an ARC copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. This story is the third in an ongoing series. I have not read the two books previous. Though they may add a small level of understanding to the world created by this author, this book is capable of being read as a standalone story.
Anne Bonny is a vampire. Yes, the famed pirate of legend. She still lives her life on her terms and with eternity at her fingertips, she plans to continue to do so. When she receives the mental message of his impending death from her only vampire progeny, Anne decides to venture to Newfoundland and meet these vampires who killed her despised offspring.
Cassandra was sired by John, the cruel progeny of Anne. When she falls for and turns Joseph, she convinces him to help her kill the evil vampire. Joseph is having trouble letting go of his humanity and has decided to part ways with Cassandra. When Anne seeks them out to understand what transpired between them all the trio gets swept up into a battle. The evil vampires of the council plan to enslave many mortals creating brainwashed tools. Can the figure out and thwart the plan that endangers humanity as well as defend themselves against their enemies?
This story is well written. It easily captured my attention and help it for the entire read. There were a few parts that I more than likely would have benefitted from reading the past novels, but it wasn’t a huge hindrance. Though it peaked my attention enough for me to want to purchase those and fill in the gaps. The scenes were crafted well enough to develop a clear image in the mind as I read along.
Though I would not class this book as erotica, there were a few well written sexy scenes between the characters. They were a nice addition to keep a little sexy touch to an interesting story, though not too often to change the genre of this story to what I call a bodice ripper. The author skillfully filled out the love scenes between the various couplings with enough material to entice those who enjoy intimate scenes between all sorts of couples.
The characters were well written and exciting. They had fleshed out histories and were individually exciting as well as carrying enough charisma in a group to add to the overall dynamic of the story. There was a small bit of cheese factor, which I enjoyed and added a touch of lightheartedness in the right spots. I would recommend this book to friends and plan to read more from this author in the future.
My rating: 4/5 stars.
