A city ruled by vampires. A disgraced princess. A world underground.
Charlotte Travesty lives in a world of comfort. Glittering nightclubs, a lavish mansion, and a staff of humans at her beck and call. Being a royal vampire means her future is secured—all she has to do is get through the Awakening, an ancient ceremony every vampire experiences when they come of age.
But when her Awakening arrives at last, everything changes in one terrifying instant.
Cast from her home and rejected by the royal family, Charlie is forced into a life of fear and brutality. Where creatures called weepers live below the city, kept at bay by an unlucky sector of fighters enslaved by the very king who cast her out. Charlie now finds herself among the ranks.
She soon learns that weepers aren’t all she needs to fear in her new life. Other workers are dying in the tunnels below ground. Charlie knows that if she’s going to survive, she must form alliances with the very humans that despise her. But will she win their trust in time? Or will she die in the very darkness she was born to rule?
I’ve been in a vampire mood lately. I just reread a four-book series about vampires and had such a great time. When I saw this book, I knew I had to jump on it immediately.
Unfortunately, I’m most likely not going to pick up the other two books in this trilogy. This novella is only 93 pages. Not enough, in my opinion, to start a new world to a new trilogy.
I feel like this world was not really described. The characters are boring and flat. I don’t know what’s going on besides Charlie is not wanted by her royal vampire family.
I’m assuming the other two books are going to be longer than this one. It seems like it’s going to be free on Kindle Unlimited just to get people to buy the other two books full-price. I will not do that.
I’m almost tempted to not pick up the Fortuna Sworn books by K.J. Sutton… I don’t know. We shall see!
