When Bryn’s loyalty to her own people is tested, the decision she makes will change the course of her life forever…Truth be told, Bryn isn’t really sure where her loyalties lie. Of one thing she’s sure, though, is that her fraternal twin sister, Jolie, who also happens to be the Queen of the Underworld, should be her sworn enemy. But after spending months with Jolie, Bryn can’t deny the fact that she genuinely cares for her sister, much though she shouldn’t. If it weren’t maddening enough that her relationship with Jolie is anything but black and white, then there’s Sinjin.Cool, calm and calculated, Sinjin Sinclair is everything Bryn imagines she should find reprehensible in a man. First of all, he’s a master vampire and all vampires, in Bryn’s mind, are nothing more than bloodsucking parasites. Secondly, his unflagging cockiness when paired with his boyish charm is enough to irritate any sensible woman. Mostly, though, it’s Sinjin’s unapologetic sexuality that Bryn finds extremely off-putting…and, well, somewhat entertaining and possibly even exhilarating...After Bryn purposely botches her leader’s attack on Jolie, Bryn finds herself returned to her old life, a life she thought she’d wanted. But the old adage, “be careful what you wish for because you might get it,” will take on new meaning once she finds herself playing hostage to her own people.

My take on this book:: CAUTION!! THIS REVIEW MAY CONTAIN SPOILERS! IF YOU DON’T WANT TO READ ANY SPOILERS PLEASE STOP READING NOW! IF YOU DO WANT TO READ SPOILERS CONTINUE ON! I WON’T ALWAYS HAVE SPOILERS THOUGH!!

H.P. Mallory has woven another great story. I know that I said in my “I am currently reading….” post that I wasn’t a fan of Bryn but I might actually be mistaken. In this story I have fallen in love with the character even more than I did in the first book. This book takes place where the first one left off with. Which was at Jolie’s wedding to Rand and Luce telling Bryn that they are going to attack.

This book is fast-paced and the rest of it takes place three weeks after the wedding and something totally cute happening for Jolie. After Bryn gets back to Montana, and with her tribe, what she did with Jolie really upset Luce so much that he took away her status and put her into a class that she would have never thought was possible for her to ever become something that…low for her.

All I have to say is that I feel bad for Bryn and that no one should have to go through with that. But then again Sinjin being the total gentleman he is at the end of the book is quite possibly one of the main reasons why he is my second best male character from Mallory’s Jolie/Bryn series. The first one would have to be Rand. Then for my best female character’s its Jolie and then Bryn. I will have to give this book a five stars. Sure I didn’t like what happened to Bryn but after talking it over with my mom I know that stuff like that happens and I believe that H.P. Mallory is just building up the character.

Hi Everyone and thanks for finding me online!

I’m a New York Times and USA Today bestselling author which means I’ve been able to cross off a couple of line items on my bucket list! Woo Hoo!

I’ve always been a huge fan of the paranormal, especially anything to do with spirits and hauntings.. I get super excited whenever they have those Twilight Zone Marathon days and anything ghost or vampire related will always get my attention. Have a cool ghost story? Contact me and tell me all about it!

My interests are varied but aside from writing, I’m most excited about traveling. I love learning about new places (especially haunted ones) and I’m a huge history buff.

I live in Southern California with my son, an enormous St. Bernard and a really cranky cat.

Abandoned on the battlefield by the people she calls her tribe, Bryn must face the fact that she is now playing prisoner to the Queen of the Underworld, who also happens to be her fraternal twin sister. As the days and months go by with no word from the Supreme Elder of her tribe, Bryn thinks her life couldn't get much worse. While Bryn bemoans her imprisonment, her sister, Jolie, is doing everything in her power to ensure that blood ties are thicker than they appear. Jolie wants nothing more than to befriend Bryn and teach her not to hate the Underworld, but to embrace it. But Bryn fights the very idea of becoming one with her enemies, although she can't help her attraction to a certain six-hundred-year-old English vampire, Sinjin Sinclair. Once Bryn is placed in Sinjin's care, she'll find herself battling the undeniable magnetism of the vampire, the one creature she abhors above all others. Sinjin's quick wit, his indisputable sex appeal, and the mystery that surrounds him all point to the fact that if Bryn falls for him, she'll be in over her head. But, as a warrior through and through, Bryn isn't the type to fall for anything, especially a handsome face. If anyone should be able to withstand the lure of the vampire, Bryn appears to be the likeliest candidate. Of course, looks can be deceiving...

My take on this book: CAUTION! IF YOU HAVE NOT READ THIS BOOK YET. CONTINUE AT YOUR OWN RISK! THIS REVIEW MAY CONTAIN SPOILERS!!!

This book is a good one and it’s the first book in this series. But also being a part of another series from the ending of the last book it starts with this book. I mean it starts off right where the other one stopped.

This book was really good and even more so then the other ones. Though I actually still like Jolie’s husband then Sinjin but the guy pictured on this book cover is pretty hot. I am pretty happy with this book. I couldn’t put it down at all and when I put it down finally it was at the ending of the book.

I thought that this book went by pretty fast much like the other books.

I got to admit though that I was pretty much hating myself when I was done with it. I didn’t want it to end and when it did I was pretty much sad since I so wanted to read the next one but there wasn’t any books at all.

I love this world that H.P. Mallory created since this is a pretty good world that I so want to be a part of. I will highly recommend this book to anyone.
