Descrizione prodotto

Sinossi

Tessa became the Queen of the Levé’ Clan but by circumstance she was left to rule alone.
As Gearing wars with a rival clan and human rebels marching to her doorstep, she has no choice but to face her king's past and the human life she thought she left behind. They mesh into a whirlwind of deceit and betrayal, interweaving constantly with one another forcing her to become strong, cunning, and vengeful.
She must overcome every obstacle in her way to claim the role of the true Queen she was destined to be.

4.0 su 5 stelle why j.s. riddle is awesome 10 marzo 2013
Di aeisha beaufort - Pubblicato su Amazon.com

I bought this novel because I read the samples and was hooked,, I love the fact that Tessa isnt just a typical amoral vampire character, but someone who struggles with the human-ness she lost when she became immortal. I was also glad to see a strong female lead, who doesnt wait to be rescued. The lack of TWILIGHTESQUE sparkles and morose,whiny overprivileged teens was a breath of fresh air. I am waiting patiently on a sequel in what appears to be a promising series.

All will love the vampire queen. One of the best vampire books I have read. Emma was a lost human, but was rescued by her vampire lover Greco, who changed her. With the death of her beloved husband, she seeks out her killer and takes her rightful place as Queen. Many moons past as she finds her human family to live under her rule. This book will excite you to the very core.

4.0 su 5 stelle Different and refreshing 6 aprile 2013
Di Ionia Froment - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Formato Kindle
When you begin reading this novel, you are immediately taken to another place. J.S. Riddle's new vampire series is not what I expected, and this is a good thing. I enjoyed vampire novels long before the advent of Twilight the other similar books that have come along since, and this book reminded me why. One of my all time favorite authors is Anne Rice, and this book, although original and clearly not modeled after Anne's books, had somewhat the same feel. The characters are a bit mysterious, the different groups of vampires fighting to establish power and the strong female main character reminded me in some ways of her work.

Here's what I liked:

One of the things that impressed me about this novel, was the way the author chose to tell the back story of her main character. Rather than making the reader feel like she was checking things off a list when it came to the description and development of Tessa, she used a well placed prologue to the beginning of Tessa's creation as a member of the vampire community to tell her story. I enjoyed reading the portions of the book that dealt with Tessa's early human life. In some ways, this was like reading multiple books without the inconvenience of changing one out for the other. The switching from present to past and back to present again was handled very well, never leaving me confused about which part of Tessa's life the author was dealing with.

Here's what I loved:

Although this is obviously intended to be fictional, I felt like the areas of the book that dealt with Tessa's life before her transformation were written from the heart. She was a character that struggled, learned a lot of hard lessons and became a strong person, which I felt never left her even after her "transformation." I personally found it refreshing to find a vampire character that was more than just a mindless killer. I enjoyed the multidimensional aspect of her character all the way around. She was good as a human and even better as a vampire queen.

I also loved the way J.S. Riddle showed the human struggle against the vampire uprising through Melinda. She is a secondary character that I think may play a much larger and more important role in future books. I am looking forward to seeing how that plays out.

Here are the things I would like to see improved or further elaborated on:

The technology. In this book, there is a couple of mentions of the emerging technology that allow the vampire clans to function during normal human operating hours, but I didn't feel it was given enough credit nor explanation. This is an interesting idea that I would like to see explored in more detail, as it was one of the things that made this book feel so unique.

The time period. I read this entire book, knowing that it must be close to the age we live in now, but I am not absolutely certain when this is taking place. This could have been shown through actual dates, or it could have been displayed through politics or world events, and I feel it would have made the entire book feel a bit more grounded.

Lastly, although I enjoyed the romance between Greco and Tessa, in the beginning I didn't feel the intensity that I would have expected from a woman who was so devoted to one man. The devotion and intense feeling seemed to come much later in the story and this made it hard for me to really get a sense of what Tessa was experiencing and why she felt the way she did.

Overall, I thought this was an interesting, exciting and stellar way to start off a new series in a genre that has a lot of competition. The author has written a unique novel with new ideas that didn't come out of a cookie cutter. Her voice is strong and she is certainly an emerging talent. I am curious enough to read the next book and would recommend this to anyone who is a fan of the genre. Even if vampire books aren't your thing, you might want to give this one a try. It will most likely surprise you.

5.0 su 5 stelle Great start to a new vampire series. 15 marzo 2013
Di April C Rawlins - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Formato Kindle
If you like vampires and you like politics, then this is a book for you. In this tale where vampires become the superior species, we see the journey of amazing woman who fights with her ability to still feel compassion (a human trait) and her ability to rule with her ferocity (her vampiristic traits). In this story of clashing clans, the human spirit, and the need to keep a species thriving, we are caught up in wars that are both physical and emotional. We empathize with Tessa, while at the same time torn apart by her unique animal ability to throw away lives for nourishment and for her own amusement. We pity her while at the same time feeling a kind of loathing for her role of entitlement amongst both humans and vampires. She is a strong female who is inspiring and intimidating. Riddle weaves great pieces of lore about gods and goddesses in with the plot, which I found to be a really nice touch. Without spoiling the plot for those who have not read it, I will surmise to say that I cannot wait to see what is in store for the Leves and for Tessa. Spoiler alert ahead. I hope to find out more information on some of the other characters such as Isaac and Isabel. I also cannot wait to see what becomes of other characters such as her nephew and niece, Jason and Emma. Will Jason remain true to the vampires and will Emma escape and find her mother? Most importantly, what will become of the baby? Will she grow up only to be killed by both vampire and human or will she grow up to be embraced? I would love to see more description regarding their environments. For instance, I loved reading about the shield wall and the clubs. I know this could change the category the book is in, but I would have loved some more graphic detail on Tessa's intimacy with her lovers. I also would love more background on Greco. This is truly a great start to a series, as I can see there is only one direction to go from here, and that is up. I hope that the plot will thicken, and that more mystery and scheming develops in the next books. Thank you J.S. Riddle for a really nice read.
