Length: 258 pages

My Rating: ⭐⭐⭐

Blurb:Supernaturals around Portland are turning up dead. I’m next … if the vampire I just made a powerful bond with doesn’t kill me first.

Magic is in a short supply for a half-witch like me, which makes things very difficult when I’m bound by a blood promise to avenge my parents.

With no leads left to follow, I make a bargain with a demon for help. Bad decision. The quest the demon sends me on binds me to a vampire named Killian, a half-mad, half-naked monster who hates my guts almost as much as he longs to drink my blood.

Killian swore to kill all witches on sight, but we agree to work together to solve the murders ravaging the city. He despises me, and I can’t stand him… but there’s an unexpected connection between us, something I can’t help but be curious about.

No, I can’t let anything distract me. Not even a hot and enraging vampire who presses all of my freaking buttons. I’m determined to find my parents’ killers, and stop the chaos taking over the supernatural world.

If only love didn’t get in the way.

My Review:

This was an okay read. There just wasn’t anything that made it stand out from the crowd.

I felt the blurb is a bit incongruent with the actual plot. Killian isn’t as dark a character as he is initially portrayed. There is also alot more going on that muddies the plot.

I also felt less than enamored with our female lead. She comes across as to immature and needy which is not the heroine I was expecting.

I feel if this book had a blurb more suited to it’s plot it would draw more readers. It’s hard to give a high review when you were expecting something a little different

I received an arc of this book via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. All thoughts and opinions are my own.
