I received an ARC of this book in exchange for a honest review.

I adore stories about Vampires. Okay so my obsession started with J.R. Ward's Black Dagger Brotherhood series and has branched out from there. When I found out that Nazarea was starting a new series about Vampires I knew I was in for a treat and this book does not disappoint.
It has a few new twists on the classic Vampire legends which I loved. Anytime an author changes it up with some new twists that I haven't already read a hundred times I'm excited

If you are a newcomer to Nazarea's work then you will fall in love with her
descriptive writing style and her characters. She is fantastic at world
building and her books are all
Encompassing. Octavian is a very intense character, after he is tasked by his father to go after this woman he wants to make a new Princess of his line things begin to escalate rather quickly. His role as the Blade of the Raven demands respect and most fear him and his reputation which is well known. But this mission will rock him to the core.

The hierarchy of the Houses is fascinating and there is a helpful guide that keeps us informed on how that all works which I flipped back to a couple of times just to clear things up. The last few pages of this give us some shocking information and the latter part of the book is a sneak preview of the next book in the series which is the Blood Scion which I cannot wait to get my hands on! I love that we got the prequel before the first book comes out. So many series release a prequel after the series is already started or even a few books into it before they go back and explain how we got to this point. It's a breath of fresh air that we are starting this out with knowing a good portion of the backstory first.

Interesting and left me wanting more way too short but it is a prequel.
Vampires and humans living together after a plague like
Illness almost wiped out the human race.
Since the vampire race require blood to survive, they had
no choice but to reveal themselves and offer up a solution
to end the virus.
Introduction to the different houses, class/rank/laws
and the hierarchy of the vamps. (Set up for the full novel)
A human, Farley Hart enters into the story and I’m guessing
she’ll play a major role in the full novel The Blood Scion that
releases in Nov 2015.

Count me in.
I need to know more of Octavian and Farley.

Two things about this review. One, I've just finished reading a couple of pretty crappy books, so maybe I'm just a bit giddy over finally getting to read something written by someone who knows how to write. And two, I'm normally a YA girl or if I read adult-ier fiction, it's the lighter type. I read between dealing with young children, so my attention span is fairly short by default.

Anyway, on to the review!

Amazing world building. This is vampires as they should be, complex and mysterious beings. I don't mind the Twilight series, but the constant repetition of remarks on Edward's "ice cold skin" and "glorious beauty"...it gets old after a while. These vampires have depth. They have history. They have problems.

There was a LOT of info packed into just a few short chapters. I found myself a little lost at times, but I think that was more my own fault than anything. This novella is meant to set up the world for future full length novels, and it has a lot to say. As an appetizer, it's a heck of a hook to the series.

If you like some dark and twisty stories, vampires with a rich history and a complex social caste, then look no further. And hey, you can't beat the price. A few grammatical/spelling mistakes, but probably nothing most readers would notice. Overall, a great (short) read. Looking forward to seeing the first full novel in the series.

I loved this novella!!! It's a great take on vampires where there are Patriarchs and Houses and humans know of their existence. Can't wait to see what's to come in the Scion Legacy!!! Plus it's free so one click now! Excited to see what's to come of Octavian and Farley!!!

So this is the second book I have read about vampires within the last two weeks. I have avoided vampire books, because quite honestly, they are glamorized too much. But I am glad that I did not stay away from this book. This author is an amazing writer, world builder and masterfully crafted realistic characters in a fantasy, fiction book. I really enjoyed the story and will be reading more from this author.

This was a unique take on vampire lore. I liked the whole organization of society and the human's place in it. The author created a great setup for the first book in the series. It gave just enough background to give the character's complexity when going into book 1, The Blood Scion. Overall, a good read. Four glittery stars!

A few years ago a trend was started in paranormal romance. We were ‘treated’ to vampires, zombies, werewolves and all manner of being in touch with their sad feelings and feeling all kinds of depressed about their place in the universe and high school. Let’s just say, I am not a fan.
So I picked up The Scionless House not knowing anything about it and expecting much the same type of depressing, cringe worthy melodrama about zits and finding true love at sixteen (eyeroll). Well slice me off a big piece of humble pie because Nazarea Andrews sure put me in my place!
Yay the return of vampires as they should be: mysterious, dark, powerful and sexy!

This brilliantly written novella marks the beginning of The Scionless Legacy Trilogy. We are introduced to the twelve houses and a host of vampires all in different levels of importance and rank. We meet the hot as shit Octavian, or Tavian, who is ordered to find a woman and bring her back to his house, a woman he knows nothing about- not even the reason he’s sent to find her. We are thrown into the threat of internal danger and politics as we follow Tavian, his estranged brother and his knights on the journey.
This is my role as Blade. To lead the Knights. To serve as advisor and assassin. And to protect his scion.
It’s like the mafia with fangs and it’s FREE with not a sparkle or third period science class in sight so seriously, go get it! I am so excited about the rest of this series I can hardly contain myself. Nazarea Andrews, thank you for returning vampires to my spank bank!
