Summary

When your father is a literal monster, the last place you want to go is home.

Unfortunately, I wasn't given much of a choice. Following a five-year exile, I'm back in my childhood bedroom. Only, this time, there are silver bars on all the windows and vault locks on the doors.

In lieu of a homecoming party, my father is hosting a barbaric tournament to determine who will win my hand in marriage. And really, who wouldn't want to spend the rest of their limitless days with a blood-thirsty vampire fresh from a cage match? This is what dreams are made of, ladies!

Things go from bad to train wreck when my only ally gets herself kidnapped and I'm left with one of my would-be boyfriends after someone loses their head - I wish I was kidding - in my bedroom. I have to save my friend, watch my back, and keep my heart from chasing after my temporary partner in crime, all without landing in the crosshairs of whatever monster is terrorizing the Eastern Court.

Meh...

This was basically a book for people thinking it'd be cool to have vegan vampires. There just wasn't anything vampire about it other than calling them that just so you could be in that genre. Even taking out the useless part of calling people vampires there wasn't much a story. It was weak at best.

Vamp Vengeance

Amanda Ronconi is a great narrator,she always makes any book better.The story was ok,I was hoping for more adventure and romance,but it played more like a mild soap opera.

Disappointing Heroine.

Amanda Ronconi's usual panache can't save this story about a boring, self centered Vampire Princess; who takes her best friend turned servant for granted and basically spends most of the book sulking whining about her privileged life as a crown Vampire Princess.
I really wanted to like this book but really Lacey's consistent "Humble Bragging" and the predictable plot turns were such a turn off that I couldn't even bring myself to finish the book.
Le sigh.
