With Selene's face on the cover and the opening chapter focusing on her, I was more than surprised to find that the lionshare of the book is Lucian's story. But it fills in some of the blanks like Soren's role, where Kraven shows up, and all about Viktor's daughter Sonja.
The book is 310 pages so I don't think they could've done more history this time around, however the way this is written I have a feeling that they plan on writing many more fun books filling in more blanks and providing more details on what happened during the vampire - lycan war.
If you liked the movie, read this book. It's compelling and kept me turning the pages. I would also HIGHLY recommend you read the novelization of the movie BEFORE reading Blood Enemy. I really liked the way this prequel jibes with the original.
Cox did the job well. I hope to see more, hopefully before the next movie.
As a senior citizen there are not many vampire or si-fi I have not read. I do admit to being a novice at reviews as I spend most of the time reading or writing for myself. Mouser I hate to worry you but I could not state your were any more wrong about Greg Cox's writing.. I was glued to this book from start to finish and that is a rarity for me, I usually read 3 or 4 books at the same time. I can only pray that if they make this movie they use the same Lucian they used in movie 1.
This is Lucian and Sonja's love story and very well written I might add. Cox hops from now to then but I must admit he is very good at it.. My favorite instructor told me once before you can break the rules you have to know the rules. Cox has them down pat, I only hope we have another sequel.
Selene is watching the lycans and an arms dealer when she is mysteriously attacked by someone killing her vamp partner and two lycans. Before she can investigate, we are thrown back in time...
Lucian was born a werewolf (lycan) and as a baby was enslaved by Viktor, a vamp elder. He has grown up thinking he is better than the rest of the "dirty beasts" and madly in love with Viktor's daughter, princess Sonja.
When he saves her from an ambush they are alone and start to admit their feelings.
However, Sonja is soon engaged to an odious vampire prince and in desperation seeks Lucian out. The affair begins and soon enough they are pregnant and marry themselves in a secret ceremony. They plan to escape but are betrayed by a lycan bitch who wants Lucian for herself.
As punishment Sonja is burned alive and Lucian is whipped but escapes. Enraged he seeks out wild lycans and forms an army, capturing the vamps' silver mine. However the vamps regroup and slaughter his forces, making him retreat and laying the seeds of a much greater lycan army, that battle should be told in "Underworld: Evolution".
Back in the present Selene kicks butt, takes names, and discovers who is trying to kill the lycans and vamps alike. In the process she almost discovers a secret plot...
Great plot but HORRID writing. Try this on for size: "the catapults rumbled down the road with the force of...well, catapults". It's paraphrasing, but I mean, yeech!
Only for the most rabid Underworld fans and please take an Excedrin before you read and spread it over a few days.
