A gifted copy was given to me from the author for the purpose of an honest review. All comments are my own and I was not compensated for this review.
Vivien is the princess and heir to a realm she didn’t know existed. When she was little, her mother sent her away to Earth for hiding.
Everything changes in the blink of an eye. Vivien stumbles into a knife fight, watches a man die in front of her, and soon listens, stunned, as Brad and his brother Aedan tell her a story of magic, vampires and a murderous ruler intent on killing a princess in hiding.
This book was good, I really want to read the rest of the series so I can see what happens. This first book is basically about getting to know the story and the world and the situation that is going on.
I have to admit, I really didn't care for Vivien, she is very selfish and self absorbed. Here is this other world that is dependent on her return to her world and take back the throne and all she wants to do is run, hide and go back to being a simple human.
I get that, I really do. but there is a bigger picture here to look at, and life isn't all about her and her wants. She can't seem to look past that.
She finally does, to a point, but not until the end and even at that I have to read the next book to see if does finally come through for her world.
DONT get me wrong, I liked the book, Kallysten is able to create a world that draws you in and keeps you there. I just didn't care for Vivien.
So you can only guess what I will be adding to my next-up-to-read list.

About The Book:
Vivien's worries are those of a typical young woman who is turning twenty in three weeks - college grades, independence and taking her relationship with her classmate and jogging partner, Brad, to a different level. Everything changes in the blink of an eye when she stumbles into a knife fight and watches a man die. Stunned, she is told by Brad and his twin brother Aedan, her self-proclaimed bodyguards, that she is a princess in hiding and heir to a realm she didn't know existed. Also about magic, vampires and the murderous ruler intent on killing her. She refuses to believe. But then they use magic to take her to the realm and Vivien has to figure out who she truly is.
Highly recommend to everyone. It's a great story and another example of Kallysten's amazing talent. She never disappoints with her story's. Always leaving you wanting more! I was hooked from the beginning and read it in one day. Can't wait to read the other books in the QuickSilver Codex series.
