Angelina Arbonne is obsessed with history. Driven by a passion for travel, the thirty-five-year-old archaeologist has no time for love. But she can’t resist knowing more when she’s stalked by a hopelessly gorgeous stranger who claims he’s a vampire king.
With her handsome suitor leading her through the hidden society of the long-lived, Angelina’s heart begins to beat to an intriguing new tune. But with an ancient magical war brewing, dating a two-thousand-year-old is giving her second thoughts about becoming an immortal queen…
Can they bridge their improbable age gap and enjoy an eternal happily ever after?
A New Queen is the compelling first book in the A History of Vampires paranormal romance series. If you like intelligent characters, original storylines, and historical themes, then you’ll adore Amanda Lewis’ enthralling tale.
The pacing was terrible in this book. It felt overly drawn out with too much emphasis on describing the settings and situations. It bogged down the story so much it was difficult to keep reading. This book had potential but I think it was geared toward the wrong audience. This would work better as a YA fantasy and with a younger heroine.
I received an arc of this book via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. All thoughts and opinions are my own.
