In a world crawling with vampires, Romania is the safest place left on earth. Thanks to the Little Council, there hasn't been a vampire on Romanian ground in over five centuries. But one day, Liana Cantacuzino, also a member of the Little Council and a descendant of one of the old noble families, is ordered to bring one in, covertly. Enter Maximilien Hess, a thousand years old vampire determined to ruin the existing order of things.
Suddenly, Liana finds herself forced to protect Hess, instead of having the pandurs kill him. With the help from her trustful friends, Rodica Ghica and Ştefan Sturdza, and that of an innocent bystander, Dr. Jesse Carver, Liana has to find out what is going on and what the President is hiding from her. When all is revealed, Hess's secret changes everything.
The first novella in The Impaler Legacy series, a vampire saga like no other.
This book is different from your typical vampire story, it has a edge but also told in a much different manner with mystery and suspense, its a world with vampires and humans alike but in a country where its safe due to the Little Council. The story kept my interest and intrigued me to want to keep reading, just felt alittle rushed in parts. I thought the characters were good, Liana especially and Max but felt they could have been more... maybe more indepth. Love when Liana and Hess finally team up I enjoyed them. This book is part of a series and I look forward to reading the next book, I enjoyed this author I think she has a unique approach to a vampire story. I try not to give too much away in my reviews but would recommend if your looking for something different. 3.5 stars
