I have missed reading the books in Ms. Heaton’s Vampire Realm Series. Like the other books in this series, this book did not disappoint at all, it had everything that I love in a paranormal romance. Ms. Heaton has a uniqueness in her writing that I absolutely love. This is a passionate read that will have you breathless in anticipation as the scenes intensify. There was fantastic character development, complex plot twists and magnificently detailed scenes that made you feel like you were a part of the story and living completely in the moment.
Tor is a sexy, strong, and arrogant man and portrays himself to be unemotional on the outside but underneath that facade he has his own personal self-worth issues that make him very vulnerable and this is one of the things about his character I love the most. Eve is a unique character herself, she is a beautiful woman and Tor’s to protect. They are sworn enemies that come together under the most unusual circumstances. The Chemistry was there from the beginning between Tor and Eve and even though it took them a while to act on that chemistry due to Tor’s complete stubborn nature as well as his insecurities and Eve’s denial of what she has become, when they do come together it is downright explosive and really hot.
I loved being able to read about how their relationship grows and how they form a bond between them through love and a passion for each other that cannot be broken. I love how Eve stands by Tor through everything that he must endure from his vampire brethren, she is there by his side when it counts the most. Tor amazes me in his understanding of her feelings and what she is ultimately facing as far as her fears are concerned. They complete each other perfectly.
The writing was flawless. The emotions were extremely intense, for the characters and for me as a reader as well. The romance was absolutely beautiful, Ms. Heaton has a way of putting pen to paper that makes you feel like you are right there in that place and time where the story happens. I would definitely recommend this story, especially if you have read the previous books in the series, if you haven’t I would recommend starting with book one but you don’t have to. Fantastic Read!
Betrayed by one of her own and turned into a vampire, hunter Eve is consumed by her hunger for vengeance and has spent five years surviving hell, driven to take the life of the man she once loved. But just as she is about to close in on the hunter-turned-vampire, an event is set in motion that threatens to see him slip beyond her grasp forever—the leader of her bloodline has sent an escort to bring her to the family’s mansion. To a nest of the very creatures she once hunted and loathes.
A vampire assassin hardened by centuries of service, Tor is a man of discipline and loyalty, never straying from his mission or the rules set out for him, and has purged all his weaknesses, including his emotions.
But the moment he meets the broken, fiery female he is to escort to Oslo, something dangerous awakens in him, something possessive and powerful, and when he is pulled into a deadly game of cat and mouse with the man who betrayed her, Tor discovers he will do anything to protect the woman slowly claiming his heart and give her the vengeance she desires—even break all the rules.
Can Eve embrace her new vampire nature in order to have her revenge and find a reason to live again in Tor? Can Tor and Eve stop the man who betrayed her and the deaths of thousands of innocents? Or will he succeed in creating a new army of hybrid vampires who will rise up against the purebloods?
