Summary

Some things are worth risking your life for.

When visitors arrive, Clara Valmont must make an entirely new agreement with the vampire she is indebted to in order to stay alive.

But even her brief reprieve might not be enough when something far more dangerous than a vampire comes to call.

Things between Clara and Alaric are not what they appear to be, and if anyone learns the truth, then it could spell death, for both of them.

Too little, too late.

This woman seems to have everything in the world to say with no reservations about it, EXCEPT WHEN IT COUNTS. The author makes her INFURIATINGLY daft to the point of almost not wanting to continue bothering with her. She doesn't speak up when she needs to the most but can't manage to keep her trap shut when she absolutely needs to. I can't understand what Alaric likes about her. I didn't like her throughout the entire first book and I can't manage to like her even now. She's a bigot in the strongest sense of the word, and although I understand why, it doesn't make it okay and it takes her far to long to understand the basic idea of individuals being different and not making subjective judgements based on characteristics out of someone's control. It's so annoying and petty. Not only that, but it takes a book and a half for her to admit she likes Alaric more than this Xander fool, and it makes me wonder just how bright she is. She acts foolish at every turn, not just in speech but also in action. The author has managed to make her entirely unlikeable as a person and heroine in the book. If she could manage to have more personality other than being a hateful creature, I'd actually like her a little, but it took far too long and it's too little too late now. I'm torn on whether I'll bother with the third book after this. I just can't find enough enjoyment in her horrible personality to care about her enough. Alaric on the other hand, I truly like. He's the only reason I stuck around this long, and I can't make my mind up on whether I should even give this woman a third chance to change her ways entirely and grow a personality outside of hateful, murderous shrew. That said, I gave it four stars because the performances of the narrators were amazing and I couldn't find it in myself to hate the book entirely.

I love this vampire series 🧛‍♀️🧛‍♂️💘📚💖

it's one I enjoy it's not my top favourite but immensely enjoy it to the point I immediately buy or preorder when k see a new book in the series has been released. So, I definitely recommend this series to any vampire series fanatic 😊💕📚🧛‍♀️🧛‍♂️
I'll give you a hint this book is about a girl that leaves an abusive home and stole to get by to find out later a vampire takes her for her father's gambling debts so she hates him but actually he doesn't care it is because he smelled blood of a vampire and not any vampire his vampire made sister! In this book we find out if she gets her freedom ,does she want it and what happens next which as you might know doesn't stop in this title theres more too come so no pre judgments most authors cant afford audio unless the sales are extremely high and if you support this series or any then I suggest spreading the word about your favorite books everywhere you can think💖📚😊🧛‍♂️🧛‍♀️

tHIS BOOK TOOK MY BREATH AWAY

Wow! This second book is just as good as the first. However, listening to this story, I remembered na old song perfect to describe this second book. The song say about lovers who denied They love. Look: “... i'm afraid to give you my heart, and confess that I'm in your hands (...) I walk away, I defend myself from you, but then I surrender.. I do things, I say things I’m not, but I denied. But the truth is, I'm crazy about you, and I'm afraid to think about losing you. It is necessary to accept that there is no more, to separate our lives (....)”
So thIS’S exactly what happens in this second book. While Clara and Aleric don't acknowledge their feelings, strong emotions await.

I had to make myself finish it.. SPOILERS

Let me start by saying just because I have these opinions on this book does not mean someone else wouldn’t like it, it’s a well written book but I just don’t like the main character.

I listened to the first book of this series and it was rather good but I had to make myself finish it halfway through this book. I just could not stand Clara after a while! Yes I understand she is confused and doesn’t know what to do but she thinks herself higher in her actions and justified in everything she does when it’s not.



-*SPOILERS*-

The fact that Alaric just oh forgives Clara so easily for killing his sister Rosalie just annoys me for some reason. And Clara goes from “I killed her and will do the same to you cause your a monster” to “I’m so mad at him for lying to me about providing to my sister.” to “oh he is my friend we are close” (even though they had sex and it’s obvious she likes him) to “no I cannot accept your last mark making me want you even more.” ... It made me literally roll my eyes. And her not accepting the third mark even though it would protect her from being attacked when she now has two vampire deaths on her hands just irritates me.
ALSO- she is just so easily forgiving for her sister lying to her all those years and saying she was sick just so she didn’t have to work, for Xander to talk to her that way and calling her names even though he moved on in days, but yet is mad and furious at Alaric for providing a better life for her not so sick sister and not telling her about it? Seriously??

No she isn’t a strong independent woman because in the same breath she goes from “I don’t need anyone.” to “Alaric is beside me and I can face anything.”

Even though the next book isn’t out and this ended on a cliff hanger, honestly I would be fine in not knowing what the rest of the story brings. I feel like I can predict what’s about to happen anyways, I called Victor being possessed.
I can’t get into a book where 95% of the point of view it comes from is from a very unlikeable character.

I like it but…

The author looses me occasionally.
Also some instances where she drags her feet and repeats herself. I’m also fairly certain one of the facts is incorrect from previously stated comments made by Alaric.
Overall it took till chapter 20 something of book 2 for me to really get invested in this series. I am not ready for book 3. I am uncertain if I am continuing due to not wanting to be a quitter and longing for the closure of this just to know or if it’s due to me really liking it. Lol
Not one of my favorite vamp books

Feels incomplete but good!

The story is okay. A good read while in a slump. My only issue with it, is that both books so far felt incomplete. Not because they end in cliff hangers, but because they just feel incomplete. The first 2 books should've been 1 book. There's not enough story for either to stand on its own.

Bummer the rest of the series isn't available on audio format yet because I feel like I just stopped in the middle of a book.

I would recommend this series, but I'd recommend waiting until the remaining books are available in audio if you're an audiobook lover.

***spoiler alert***
her not accepting the 3rd mark was just brutally annoying. I think if the book was longer it wouldn't have been so annoying. There was every reason for her to accept it and her delay just drove me insane. Still, this is a good story with good writing.
