It is a love story, a vampire story, a mystery, a fantasy. Alivia Ryan has inherited her until now, unknown father’s antebellum mansion, his servants and Rath, a manservant whose loyalty to the Conrath family goes deep in a small town called Silent Bend, Mississippi. Along with the estate comes money, suspicion, secrecy, and an introduction into a society she knew nothing about. Life in Silent Bend is typical of that thought of an old river town along the Mississippi, replete with Spanish moss and old-south charm; under those southern manners, there lies a deep-seated fear of going out after dark.
Ian Ward, a self-proclaimed protector of Silent Bend has his hands full being an EMT, however, after Alivia arrives things become more complicated. Add to the mix a “shunned House” (of vampires), Ian’s not so sweet but sassy Grandmother Lula, and a younger sister, Elle who is a whiz at chemistry, the very real ‘threat’ of the King, and a mysterious legend combined with the eclectic townspeople, and you have quite the tale.
Much more detail would spoil the story, but I sincerely love what she has done to these vampires to make them hers. Since this is a series, Ms. Taylor would be remiss if she did not include at least one “cliff-hanger” and I must say, “WHAT!!??” I am ready for the next book to arrive!!
She brings an interesting and fresh tale that I think all vampire lovers would love! Throughout I was sitting on the edge of my seat, especially when we were learning more about the vampire world! I was instantly hooked, seriously on the edge of my seat! I did not want to leave this world! I also loved how this kind of reminded me of The Originals, with it being in the south and all the hierarchy stuff. Oh god, I just love the south and Mrs. Taylor brought it to life beautifully! It just sucked me in more!
Alivia (god, I love that name!) brought many feels to me! Especially the doomed end to her and Ian, who by the way got like 3x hotter when we find out that he's a virgin! Or am I the only women here that thinks that? Anyways, I was cheering for them throughout the whole read! *Small spoiler* Even though there relationship is doomed from the start as he's a vampire hunter and she's a Born.* Which is why it was such an emotional roller coaster for me, especially at the end. Oh my gosh, that ending! I honestly saw it coming because I didn't think Mrs. Taylor would be that mean so I was literally jumping with joy at the end! My heart was so happy! I can't wait to find out how that's even possible in the next book!
Overall I absolutely enjoyed this! I loved that Alivia took things into her own hands and didn't wait for anyone else to make any decisions for her. She is one kick ass character! She's strong and smart (loved where she hid many wooden stakes in her dress!) and I can't wait to see what she does in the next one! God, I'm sitting on the edge of my seat waiting for the next one!
I’m a major vampire book fan. I’m also a Keary Taylor fan. So I was rather excited when I found out she had written a book about my favorite supernatural creature.
This book, however, is a good one for even those who aren’t vampire fans because it isn’t so much about vampires as it is about a character just trying to find her place in a crazy new chapter of her life.
The forbidden romance took center stage, as you can probably tell from the blurb, and I liked that there was insta-chemistry and then feelings that built up rather than insta-love.
My favorite thing about the book though was actually just Alivia herself. She was super down-to-earth and mature about things. She never made mountains out of mole hills or got overdramatic, and she had her priorities straight. She also never sat around doing nothing, waiting for people to make decisions for her—she got proactive and took her fate into her own hands. And I definitely loved how she stood up for herself and didn’t let the people in her life push her around. It all made her really relatable and likeable to me. I don’t often genuinely like female protagonists, especially when they’re written in first person, but Keary Taylor writes them well. And though Alivia was my favorite, Ian was also great—he was an adorably gruff closet sweetheart!
Another thing I liked was how beautiful and interesting the Mississippi setting sounded. It added a lot of atmosphere and charm to the book.
Overall this was a book that was focused on characters and intrigue rather than action, but it still flowed well and kept my attention until the end. And the next book has more action, more angst, more emotion, more intrigue, and more vampires, so this book did an amazing job of laying the foundation (while still being interesting) and creating a story I couldn’t wait to keep reading!
