I happened upon this book when it was free and decided to throw it into my pile of "To Read". I didn't look too carefully and ended up with a few "romance" novels (this one included). Luckily there wasn't much to the romance aspect (yay!). Now let me just get to the flaws and then I will go into the good of this books.

Please in your next books get a better editor! I understand that authors are not editors so I can't fault the author for writing it wrong. However, if there was an editor they need to be better trained. Misspelled words, huge gaps between words or sentences, and someone needed to catch the million and a half "sighs" after every freaking paragraph. Luckily the "sighs" got less frequent as the book went on. So if that's bothering you just hold on a few chapters more. Also Luna went from being independent to being stubborn and stupid! Even independant women have a little give and they also have a soft side. Towards the end I was getting a bit annoyed with Luna and her "No one can do a damn thing for me or else I'm a baby" attitude.

Now, there are many more good aspects to the story than bad ones. Which is why I rated this book 4 stars. Honestly it could have been a 5 star if those flaws weren't there. So the author has good potential and I hope she grows as the series continues. I don't really pay for books, but I will keep an eye out for the rest of this series and hopefully catch another flash sale on the rest. The story was engaging, the characters had depth, and overall the way emotions and experiences were portrayed was well written. While there is one "sex scene" it's not really graphic. It's really about the emotion and not the sex act itself. Other than saying he slid into her, there really wasn't much else talked about the physical act of sex.

Another great Vampire story. Paranormal romance is my favorite genre and this book definitely lived up to the title. Can't wait to read more stories by the author.

I tried to be open minded. The vamps were just too human for me, and the telepathy thing was annoying and inconsistent. The writing was ok, although I'm not sure why she needed to include the word "sigh" in every chapter. Characters were just ok-Luna was good until the end when she let being queen go to her head. I thought Lucian was gay b/c he kept callin Luna 'girlie.' Adrian was a whimp through most of the book. Saying 'darling' all the time didn't help his cause. So, not a very stong male lead character. The only character I found appealing was the dad. He's a good bad guy though he wasn't in much of the book. The one sex scene wasn't explicit enough and there was little build of emotion. The pace of the book was also a little too slow. Good price but I won't be reading the next book.

And as of July 2015, there is no sequel. Be aware of this fact if you hate to be left hanging for a continuation of a story. This was just an "OK" read for me. The Heroine is belligerent, mouthy, obnoxious, impetuous, and foolish. I'm not quite sure how old she was supposed to be--but I didn't get the impression that she was a teen, as she was working as a Stripper in a nightclub. But the dialogue was full of "gottas" and "wannas" and "craps", which made her seem rather juvenile. Conversation was a little awkward, and the "Dearies" and "Darlings" seemed unnatural.

The plot and world building was reasonably good, but the character development wasn't. In fact, the most interesting character was the evil Father Vampire. And (Spoiler), the author killed him off at the end of this book.

Showed promise, but it needs some work.

Format: Paperback
For years, popular novels like Twilight have featured vulnerable and dependent female leads, and powerful male leads. Christine Asher takes a detour with Luna Lynn Miller, a determined, fearless and obdurate female protagonist.

When Luna awakens to find herself disrobed and in a surreal, cavernous environment, she discovers numerous deep cuts on her neck and wrists. Interestingly, her captors issue an ultimatum: drink from a chalice that supposedly revitalizes an individual with life, or die.

Normal people would probably succumb to the intimidation factor--considering she's in captivity. However, Luna is not your typical female lead. Hence, she doesn't stand for scare tactics and is nearly immune to manipulation.

Her refusal to cooperate triggers an adventure that is convoluted and full of danger. The Chalice is not only a vampire romance, but a snapshot into the world of the vampire aristocracy. More importantly, The Chalice is about making decisions, unfiltered and without the persuasion or manipulation from others.

The Chalice is intriguing for all levels with its intricate mix of romance, adventure, and vampire politics. It's a must read for all reading levels.

Format: Paperback
In a time where vampire novels are running rampant, Christine Asher presents a refreshing, and unique spin on the world of vampires in The Chalice. Led by the long-legged and beautiful Luna, a convincing and strong-minded protagonist, The Chalice is full of adventure and portrays an imminent clash with the vampire aristocracy.
The plot unfolds with Luna in a surreal, dream-like trance finding herself "cold and naked, lying on a dirty concrete floor." Nursing deep cuts oozing blood from her neck and wrists, Luna continues, "I desperately wished for this to be just another strange dream, yet my insides I knew otherwise. It seemed real, too real."

Amidst the cave-like location where Luna's held, her mysterious captors require that she drink from a chalice that contains the remedies to her ailments. However, she not only doesn't know who they are, but has been kidnapped by them. Who knows what's in the chalice? The problem arises in that she doesn't really have a choice. She must either drink from the chalice or die.

Luna's independence and relentless defiance is the one element that sets this book apart from other vampire renditions, and really makes The Chalice a worthwhile, enjoyable, and different read. Determined to survive on her own, Luna refuses to cooperate with her captors, instead remaining steadfast that she will not be taken advantage of.

The combination of strong characters, powerful storyline, and an intriguing glimpse into the political aspect of the vampire world are just a few of the reasons why The Chalice is a must read.
