Book Description:

After centuries as the prince of the Carpathians, Mikhail Dubrinsky fears he can’t protect his people for long from their greatest threat: the extinction of their species at the hands of their immortal enemies–who are devising a scheme to slaughter Carpathian females. But even with his own lifemate, Raven, and their daughter, Savannah, vulnerable to the encroaching evil, Mikhail’s hope is not lost.
Carpathians from around the world are gathering to join their souls and their powers to bring light to the darkness. But so too are their adversaries uniting–hunters, vampires, demons and betrayers–bringing untold dangers into the fold of the Carpathian people.

My Rating: 1/5.. maybe even less -_-

Not much for me to say about this book. Happy I purchased it at the Dollar Store. This book was insanely cheesy for me, completely unrealistic in a BAD way. I couldn’t even finish it. I tried to get in to the story because I read some good reviews but I just could not. If I can come away with something positive though, I will say the writing wasn’t bad. I think there’s a fine line between a bad story and bad writing. I can’t stand when people tear someone apart for their writing when it’s the story they should be criticizing. I will not let my emotions get in the way of logic. I’m also not naive to the fact that this book is a part of a massive series. I don’t believe, from the little that I did read, that I needed to have read any of the other stories. This book held it’s own. And frankly, it makes me not even remotely interested in any other part.

So with that being said, I would still probably recommend it to fans of the romance genre who want a bit of the vampire flare into their storytelling. As for me, I’ll be donating this or turning it into a craft of some sort.
