The Black Lily

Vampire Blood, #1

"The Black Lily" is one of those books that weeks later you are still thinking of the plot, characters and story line. It's seeped in fantasy and has a dash of fairy tale. Think vampires, Cinderella, and the crown.

Our main characters are Arabelle, a servant girl, and Marius the vampire prince. But Arabelle isn't only a servant girl, she's also the head of a rebellion against the vampire overloads. These two first meet a ball that Arabelle has infiltrated. Marius is almost a victim of Arabelle's dagger, but Marius has plans, sexy plans, for her. Who new a near death could spark so much passion.

Well that's the start of a long fairy tale. From there these two play a bit of cat and mouse. There are also some great side characters and some sad losses of friends. But there are also new friendships to celebrate.

I really loved this tale and look forward to many more forayed into this world that Juliette Cross has created.
