In this book they also discover other dangers to their existence, as well as the possibility of being put back to sleep if they are not careful. Once I started reading, I simply could not put this book down. With action and adventure and fear for these beloved characters' lives and well-being from the very first few pages, combined with suspense that just never lets up until the final page, it is not surprising that the author - who is a genius with cliff-hanger chapter endings - switches back and forth between sixth century Byzantium and modern day Cappadocia and England, with ease; thus ensuring that the reader keeps turning the pages.
The characters truly come to life - Alexandre, still the nineteenth century French aristocrat, Freddy, the British aristocrat of the same time period and on the modern end of the scale, Madison and her brother Ben. Add to this variety of characters a few sixth century individuals and the story is as colorful as it gets. As all the characters are realistic - not all good or bad - the suspense becomes unbearable when a traitor seems to be working with the enemy.
For those who love a bit of romance, the love between Madison and Alexandre is beautifully and tastefully described and will definitely touch your heart. This thrilling and beautiful book deserves more than 5 stars, and will have the reader looking forward to many more from Shalini Boland. Ellen Fritz reviewed 74 days after purchase. Tiffany Harkleroad reviewed on on May 30, Madison and Alex are in love, despite the fact that she is a young girl who just inherited a fortune, and he is a centuries old vampire.
But when Madison is kidnapped by ancient enemies of Alex and his vampiric kin, their safe and comfortable world is turned upside down. Alex and crew must return to a place they hate, the place where they were made, and confront their past.
In the midst of this, the mysterious and ancient tale of Aelia unfolds, until we learn how she factors into Madison and Alex's lives. I really enjoyed the first book in this series, but I absolutely loved this second installment of the Marchwood Vampires. Shalini Boland does a phenomenal job of weaving ancient backstory with contemporary plotlines.
As with the first book, my favorite parts of this book were the tales of old, the backstory set in the first millennium.
I found that ancient storyworld to be rich and vividly created by the author. I could smell the dust of the Byzantine empire as I read.
I loved getting a little more insight into the lineage of these vampires. Book Format: eBook. Digital delivery to your. Walmart eBooks App.
