Here is a quote from the book, “When the Mistress took ill, Jael came here as she has training as a nurse. The silly woman wishes to return to him, as soon as the Mistress is well again.” Eamon disapproved. “She is not valued as you are by the Master. Her Master does not love her and never will’ his life mate died many decades ago and Jael is nothing more than a human replacement. When she is too old, he will cast her aside and find another,” he rambled on, clearly trying to make a point.”. There is more but you will need to read the book which I can recommend it is worth a read, you may not have the problems that I did. The story idea was good and likeable. I voluntarily read an advance copy of this book for an honest review.
There were some continuity mistakes that stood out, but mainly, the editing error were what made this book almost unreadable to me. I said it before and I'll say it again, the editor is your friend. There is not enough times that the book should be read and re-read to catch said mistakes. Otherwise, it reflects bad on the author as being careless and not diligent enough.
I am really sorry that I spent any time/money/thought on this book.
Here are some of my objections :
Son is getting dimmer - not in ANY kind of near future (millions of years), so PLEASE do not try to sell me such nonsense. Put the plot in some other dimension/planet/universe if you want, but do NOT mess with physics!
Because our Sun gets dimmer we revert to Victorian age, and live shorter lives - PLEASE!!!!! Most of energy sources do not depend on the Sun (nuclear, hydro, coal, oil), crops do, but to keep crops up, you need energy, so reverting to Victorian type of production means killing off more than the half of population, and there is no mention of THAT. Also Victorians did not live shorter lives, they died younger, which is not the same (length of life depended on its quality, not genes). Here it is implied that lives got shorter genetically speaking.
Vampires came forth to bring rules and peace to humans - REALLY????
King of vampires was so hideous that no one wanted to have sex with him (including the prostitutes) - PLEASE!!!! First of, as he was described, it was NOT so bad, and second, highly paid prostitutes DO know how to do their job well, so do not try to sell me the story of poor ugly virginal vampire king!!!
I will not go further, because, really!!!!
At first I didn't know if I liked when the story switched perspectives from different characters, but in the end it makes the most sense so that the reader gets all of the perspectives to understand what is going on in the minds of the major characters involved.
This is such as an amazing story that I am so happy that Elaine decided to share this with us as she was unsure whether or not to share this as it is an Mpreg, and it is one of the best ones I have read.
I cant wait to read more by this amazing author.
