A Dark Assassins Novel…. Seth …. book 2.5 …. Valerie Ullmer
Immortals have been a part of Seth’s world since he barged into Kai’s life at the age of twelve. And having a group of shifter and vampire assassins he considered family, he thought that he’d seen it all and that nothing would surprise him. But the one night he met Aubrey changed his world, and he’d never been so happy to be wrong.
Aubrey was used to seclusion, even before she had been turned into a vampire. She’d never dreamed of a life outside her tiny little world, but that was until she met Seth. Before she could understand her reactions, she ran from him. But she couldn’t stay away. The more she gets to know him, the stronger the connection between them solidifies.
When Seth tells Aubrey that he is her mate, will she take a chance and keep him forever?
A short story involving the youngest member of the Dark Assassins company and family.
Seth has known about vampires and shifters since he was 12 years old, he’d been unofficially adopted by Kai ( vampire and hero in book 1) then quickly accepted by the rest of the “Dark Company” members.
His parents aren’t exactly maternal, and leave him to his own devices.
He wants to help Olivia with her research so goes to school with the intentions of helping her.
Whilst studying at college, Seth is aware that he should make more of an effort to have human friends, he tried one date….. and that was a disaster!!!
Aubrey has been a vampire for a little while now (she was “turned” by her mothers latest “boyfriend”) after leaving her mother, Aubrey has been on her own, it’s safer for her that way, the only friends she has is Cole (a human male) and a cat called Hades.
Deciding on a college course is a big deal for Aubrey, the idea of mixing with people terrifies her.
The story moves pretty quick (Seth knows Aubrey is his mate, and wants them to be together, he also wants her to turn him into a vampire, so they can be together for a long time) Aubrey isn’t sure, and moves at a slower pace.
It’s a novella, so the story has to move along at a quicker pace.
We catch up with precious couples, we also catch up with other characters from the previous books.
Must admit, it’s not my favourite in the series so far (is it because it’s a short story ? Maybe) but I’m glad Seth got a story. And a little disappointed that we had no kidnappings or people trying to kill each other 😉
