OK first of all I have to say WOW!! This book was amazing!! I literally couldn't stop reading! It had mild sexual content, mild language use, and just a super story!
It starts off at the slave auction with just two words, 'Blood slave'. The daughter to the leader of the resistance, Arianna has been caught by the vampires her father fights against. She and others found in the woods are sent to the slave auction. Those unlucky enough to be bought will be used as blood slaves, the lucky ones are killed. Aria is hoping to be lucky. She is shocked to find Max, the man she use to have a young girl crush on and who is also her brother's best friend on the auction block with her. She is devastated to figure out he is there because she got herself captured and hoped he could somehow save her. When he is bought her hopes of being lucky are dashed. She can't condemn him to this fate while she is released to death so when she is called she begins to hope to be bought, even though no one has ever escaped the vampires before.
Aria is claimed by none other than Braith the vampire Prince. Her hopes of escape diminish completely when he steps forward. The Prince confuses her. She doesn't understand why he chose her and what he wants with her. Why does he wear those dark glasses all the time and why does he make her feel so warm when he is around? Things get tense between them, but will they be able to overcome the obstacles of blood slave commandments?
This book draws you in emotionally from the moment you begin to read. Aria's despair, her confusion, her rage and her excitement are all felt. Braith's struggle, confusion and his rage are so strong it will make your heart pound. This book leaves you FEELING!! It has an unbelievable ending that will make you immediately buy the second book.
