1000+ years have done nothing to tame the blood thirst of Royce Bellamy, but his memory of human existence keeps his demons at bay.
Being a vampire is not something Royce wanted, or would wish on anyone, but it is his reality. After a tragic turn of events Royce is turned by another. He is given life immortal and struggles throughout his years with his own desires and conscience. He needs the blood of others to subsist, but does he dare bring others into this world with him?
Beth Ann only knows one thing, she loves Royce. She sees herself with him for eternity, but will he give her the gift of everlasting life to make that happen? Can she convince him that turning her will make his world a happier place?
I’m not a big fan of paranormal books, so I’ll admit this book was a hard read for me. The backstory presented by Ethan Radcliff tells of the main characters struggles and history in depth but at times, for me, it was overstated. Once I was past the how’s and when’s of it all, the story began to take shape and I was able to get into it more. I’m curious to see the evolution of this series. Where will Ethan take the characters and how will the love of Royce and Beth Ann progress in the next installment?
I’m reluctant to rate this book as it was not a favorite read, but I understand it is what I must do. I will give it a 3 O rating with the knowledge that the series has only just begun and I’m hopeful that with maturation the story will become more engaging. (This is only my opinion. If you like Vampire stories, read it and decide for yourself.)
**I was given an ARC for an honest review.
