I really liked both of these books, the only thing that would have made it better, is if we got to see other point of views besides Matthew. But seriously, the author did such a great job of writing it that I was halfway through the first book before I realized we hadn't gotten anyone else's point of view.
As a fan of series like Vampire Diaries, Supernatural and even Underworld, it was refreshing to see an LGBT version of this genre that was fleshed out and well written. I like the fact that our main character Matthew is pretty much fluid, he was married to a woman before and had a kid, with no hint of ever being attracted to men before he was turned into a vampire. But there is no denying the chemistry he has with Tarrick, the incubus General that was more than a little cruel to him in the first book. Yes, we have a classic case of stocklom syndrome, but as a reader we can't help hoping that Tarrick does care about him, but is just too proud to say it.
This author set the perfect pace of action, suspense and sex, and even flings some humor in there every now and then is awesome. When the vampires think of making Mathew their leader, he's concerned about whether or not he'll get to wear jeans anymore. (Guess you can't be a leader and wear jeans =p) It was a joy reading the action scenes, seeing Matthew try to somehow come out on top giving his limited training and age. But as the storyline progresses, we learn why he's able to achieve these feats and who his mysterious sire is.
Throwing Devak (the blood guardian) into the mix was definitely needed, especially since we went a good chunk of book 2 without Tarrick in it. I really liked them together and how Devak was so submissive to Matthew, despite being so powerful himself. Sam's addition as the oracle was really refreshing, and while we hoped not everything she predicted came true, she was usually spot on.
My last pet peeve is, what's with the cliffhangers at the end of each story? I want a warm and fuzzy feeling when I finish reading, not a "I'm ready to pull my hair out because you ended it like that" feeling. Either way, I look forward to reading more of this series and from this author in general. Yay!
The way it is written just gets to you. There is lots of emotions who get to you (yes I even cried) and it never lets you go. It's never boring, it has a great speed at which things are developing and not some confusing jumps from present into past and back. Sure, there are flashbacks that explain feelings and situations but you stay present.
I really like how the characters are developing and the depth given to them. We learn new things about over time which explain behavior and actions. The main characters are very "alive" and I could relate to them at certain points even though they are from a fantasy world.
I got so into this world and Matthews way I couldn't put down my reader to go to bed knowing I had work in the morning. So very short nights for me during this book. Great story, I honestly can't wait for the next one and read how Matthews fate is turning out. Also, hopefully, it's not going over to many books because I truly hope this "tearing" him up in every way possible is one day coming to an end. Even if it has to be his death should he not get a happy end but I hope (even though they are great) not to have to read to many more books in this series.
I can only suggest this book to you. Well written. Fantasy, love, emotions, family, heartbreak, win and loss and so many things more.
Matthew has broken free of the incubi, and he is now living as a vampire in vampire society. He still has a lot to learn, and while he is not without the assistance of a powerful vampire to help him understand, Matthew (being Matthew) stumbles through learning the hard way. He learns much about himself and about his past in this book, and a new enemy arises that forces the Incubi and the Vampires to work together. (And why would anyone think that opening a hell mouth would be a good idea?)
There are new characters here, as well as familiar faces. We have Matthew, of course, the hero - and he is such a well-crafted and believable character that his motivations and flaws make perfect sense, because as a reader, you begin to feel that you really know him. The point of view in this work is his, and it is perfect. At no point does he break character, not in speech or action and not in the narrative.
There are a number of other characters in this world with Matthew, too. We have Tarrick, who is just as complex as he was in "Captive". We have Silva, whose emotional backstory gets more play, and the new characters Devak and Sam, whose impact on Matthew cannot be understated.
I said this in my review of the first book, "Captive," and it still holds true. The books are told from Matthew's point of view, and that point of view has such integrity and is so well-crafted that I sometimes felt that I was reading a first-person account.
I am eagerly looking forward to Book 3 in the Beautiful Monsters series. Jex Lane is a talent, and I hope to read her work for years to come.
Anyone looking for an involving series with deep emotion, strongly-rendered characters, tight plots and sheet-burning sex will love this series. I highly recommend it.
