I really enjoyed this story I liked Ms Roane s take on vampires.Her characters where believable, likeable and I wanted to know them better.I liked the fact that the world building was spot on, not overdone and boring.I need fast paced, action packed stories and this definitely fill the bill for me.I fell for Adrien, for his pain, his suffering and the hatred in his heart was easy to accept As was his fierceness and his willingness to work with Lily Lily was smart and understanding of her plight [...]
3 starsThis book is the most wounded book I ve ever read in paranormal romance Never I ve encountered reading hero and heroine who are both damaged souls Like, seriously utterly damned tortured souls.What I likedConnection between Adrien and Lily They are perfect together Besides, I liked Adrien because he has soft spot although he s uber lethal I liked Lily too because she s a strong willed and very passionate woman.I liked the new set of vampire human world in this book Although it isn t much [...]
Fantastic So enthralling I didn t even peak ahead to see what would happen in the chapters to come Awesome H and h Liked them both on their own merits and together they were smoking hot The vampire bad guys were intriguing and while the surprise connection of one to the H wasn t really shocking, it still worked.Lots of other characters that hinted at future tales for the series including what is clearly C and L for book 2 which I have already flagged to buy.Writing style is a bit blunt the reade [...]
This is the first book in a new vampire series by Caris Roane First books always mean introduction to the new world You have to learn if the vampires are born or made, can they reproduce, do they have destined mates, all that jazz There was not a ton of new material to learn to get current in Roane s world I appreciate the simplicity Adrien was a gentleman, considering all he has been through lately I was afraid he might try to devour Lily from lack of blood, but he restrained himself He never g [...]
As the story opens, we find Adrien an Ancestral vampire, one of the strongest of his kind to ever exist, bound and chained in a cave high in the Himalayan mountains He is not alone Two of his brothers are also prisoners and are held close to him Along comes Lily, a human, on a mission to get her son back from a ruthless vampire named Daniel She enlists Adrien to help her Together they embark upon a journey fraught with danger, as they fight the desire and lust that pulls them closer I found this [...]

Can t wait for the sequel.
I originally saw this series on NetGalley and was immediately interested I haven t read a vampire book like this and it was very exhilarating Caris Roane has a fantastic writing style and her characters are complicated, causing you to read on and discover their secrets I loved this book, though I wasn t completely addicted but in saying that I definitely had to find out what happened to Adrien and Lily.Adrien and his brothers have been captured and tortured for the past year They are bound in ch [...]

My Review Flat outI bought this book because of that cover Luckily, the story is good too Really creative Adrien and his two half brothers have spent the last 8 months chained and tortured He s offered a way out by binding himself to Lily so that they can search for a weapon He does NOT like humans and thinks that she s doing this entirely out of greed Lily HATES vampires They killed her entire familyor so she thought Now she s found out that her son Josh is alive and she has the power to save h [...]
Surprisingly good 3.5 Stars it would have earned 4 Stars if there was this one issue but I will get to that later.Lily Haven lost her family her husband, her daughter and her son or at least she thought she did 2 years after the raid in her village she finds out that one of them survived won t say which one, don t want to spoil it The condition of getting that person back is to bind herself to a vampire with neck chains Adrien, Lucian and Marcus have been held by the monster Daniel in the Himala [...]
When I first started this book, I had very high hopes From the first chapter, I liked the hero, liked the heroine, liked the set up then something happened something I don t quite understand and everything went screwy.Adrien and his half brothers are vampires who are strong members of their vampire community They are also very strong vampires Their abusive father kept them imprisoned but now a human is keeping them in chains They are too much of a threat to allow them their freedom, so the broth [...]
Rate 4.5 stars A fantastic start to a new series, the characters of Lily and Adrien and their love story was developed beautifully The showcasing of their increasing individual strengths as they made their decisions for their future was a wonderful read and gave the reader a great insight to the developing storyline This will become a very intriguing series as each Brother as well as some of the other interesting character s stories are written Definitely looking forward to the future episodes o [...]
I loved this book, and the premise of the characters in both physical and emotional chains It was a great first book, with a story of smoldering love and then true heat It took me away, and the trip was wonderful Of course all that happened happened over a few days time, and although I often expect that in this genre, I think in this case the two of them being together over the passage of time would have worked better.All in all this was great fun I m looking forward to the next installment.
I was given a copy of this book from the author in exchange for an honest review.I don t know why, but I put off reading this one for quite a while Once I started, I quickly realized that I had only made myself miss a great story This book had a huge case of insta love, but the author s explaination made it where I could see it as plausible I really liked Adrien and Lilly as characters and can t wait to explore the other brothers.
Really good story, a few surprising twists, although predictable for the most part Nice character development and unusual story line There were quite a few place where I m thinking, geez, why doesn t she just I understand furthering the storyline and trying to build suspense, but some of these efforts fell short and appeared to make the female protagonist, Lily seem silly Writing style was great, so I would read from this author.
Vampire peacekeeping warriors and half brothers, Adrien, Lucian and Marius were betrayed and chained in vampire prison by order of rogue ancestral vampire Daniel Briggs Daniel has fought, Read May 2, 2014Rating 4.25 stars ActuallyThis entire review and others can be found at ireadthatbook
I have to admit I m kind of tired of the vampire genre, but honestly the cover caught eye too much to let this one slide by Then the story was so hot, I couldn t put it down Oy I m glad they love me at my fav Subway, cause I would have thrown me out Between the outbursts of laughter and the Oh My Hotness I was a hot noisy mess AwesomeRead
The idea for this book was great but the actual story was awful The way everything was referenced during sex her well kissing her low was like it was written by a prudish aunt and let me just say that was a total mood killer Also Lilys constant crying annoyed me so much I started hoping she would meet a rather unfortunate end x
Original and sexy vammire story i liked how this story developped, how both Adrian and Lily were forced into the situation but came out so much stronger together My only problem maybe is that everything went a bit too fast By the end of the book, we are just 3 days later than at the beginning and with so much happening It is hard to feel like it is somehow possible.
Love it it was really good I can t wait to see what you could Lucian and Carie
cant wait for the next one to come out
I enjoyed this new series very much.And I have already bought the next book in this series to read.
I thought this was a pretty good book It was slow at times and some of the phrasing that was used made me do a little head scratching altogether a good start to a new series.
Loved it and cant wait for the next book in the series.
At first I found the story to be a little strange As the story progressed though I found it to be quite an enjoyable read and extremely interesting Much what I expected from Ms Roane.
dark a bit scary lots sexy and sweetly emotional at times n t wait to see what s next
This started out rocky but got better Looking forward to the next book.
3.5 stars.An interesting start to a new series by Caris Roane
