American exchange student Kate Bordessa has fled to Russia to escape her family’s hopes that she’ll become one of the Proffered, human women who feed and mate with elite vampire warriors.

Grieving over the deaths of his brothers, Vampire Warrior King Nikolai Vasilyev has thrown himself into battling his enemies, focused only on vengeance. Until the attack that brought him to Kate. Their sexual attraction explodes into a night of uncontrolled passion–a night that marks them as mates.

My Review

I liked that this one felt more modern than the last one and that we got some action with the Soul Eaters to better understand that part of the story. Even though Kate still ends up with a vampire it feels more real, or at least a product of fate, unlike the Proffered storyline of the first book.

The Proffered train to be a virgin woman that the vampires can drink from and sleep with in hopes that they’ll be their mate. This felt a bit too much like brain washing so I liked that Kate appeared to think more for herself. Granted her reaction to Nikolai and visa versa is insta-love but there was a sweetness to it once Nikolai gets over his funk. I just wish there could have been more development into real feelings between Kate and Nikolai because their love for each other was pretty intense almost immediately.

Of course, it’s not a very long book so I understand that things have to be rushed but still.

3 stars – it was good
