That changes everything ….
With one bite, Charlie and Nessie are forced to run for their lives. Leaving behind everything they’ve known, fighting for survival, freedom, and a chance at a future neither of them ever imagined.
REVIEW: Haven’t read a vampire story in a while.
In this book, not all vampires are nice, in fact after the humans find out about the vampires, things went from bad to worse, many became “blood slaves” no better off than cattle, used and abused with no thought to how they’d feel to be an unwilling donor.
Vanessa is such a human, a child when she first became a donor, now a young woman, she loathes and despises them, their cruelty when taking blood, and using them as house slaves as well.
She thought she had a friend for life in Charlie, but he left her and never looked back. She yearns to escape, but knows that’s an impossibility.
Charlie hates his master with a passion, his master is a cruel and violent vampire.
Charlie has watched as humans are turned into cattle and slaves, and now the vampire council are deciding on wether to let his master expand his slave trade. It needs to stop, and Charlie thinks he is strong enough to do it. And returning to the “home” he once knew fills him with dread, but he knows this may be his best shot.
Coming home has a few surprises for Charlie, one being the little girl who lightened his heart and made him want to be a better supernatural.
“Nessie” was an endearing soul, and always knew how to make him smile, but their first meeting didn’t go as planned, and the look in her eyes wasn’t joy, it was hatred.
Their relationship is slow in returning, but once it does, then both Charlie and Nessie have life changing decisions to make.
It was a very well written book, and the author described this new world in all its technicolour glory.
Do Charlie and Nessie get to make a life for themselves? And what about the master ? And will the council let them live ?
