Snow the Vampire Slayer
by Rebekah R.
Publication Date: September 22, 2014
Lady Snow Gwyn is tired of playing “mother” to her seven Vampire Slaying brothers. For the past two years, she’s yearned to be out there fighting at their side as they hunt for bloodsuckers in the black of night. Snow is as good a fighter as any man, but she wasn’t called to be a Slayer. A mere formality in her book.
Prince Sageren, Son of Lothar has spent the last fifty years in exile, awaiting the day when he can finally avenge his family and take back his throne. Barely existing, he’s forced to face his inner demons and the monster he once was, compelling him to vow to never drink from humans again. A simple enough task–until he crosses paths with a human who makes his fangs ache to drain her.
When Snow runs into Prince Sage on a late night trip to the woods, she’s torn between the urge to kill him and the desire to succumb to the feeling he stirs within her. And when Snow’s life is threatened by the same evil that murdered his family, Prince Sage must enlist the aid of Snow’s brothers to not only help him save her life, but to also regain his rightful place as King of the Vampires.
If Sage can keep the Slayers from killing him first.
Run away. Run now. Sage wanted to scream. But he couldn’t. Drink her dry. Make her your own and you’ll never be alone again. He pounded on his skull. His gaze met hers and he suddenly lost all reserve.
One moment he was inches away, the next he grabbed her braid and forced her body against his, crushing her lips with his own. His tongue plunged deep into her mouth. She stiffened at his touch initially, but then relaxed against him. He needed this.
Her supple body pressed against his, her curves sparking every inch of his skin to wake up and pay attention. Out of sheer will, he forced his fangs at bay. He wanted her all to himself at that moment. Just her. The feel of her lips on his lips. Her tongue danced and licked his with a palpable need. Her apparent lack of experience made Sage savor her all the more.
He was dangerously close to losing control. She pushed against him roughly and he let go. Her eyes widened before hardening. Quick as light she swung to slap him, but he caught her wrist.
“You don’t want to do that, love. You’ll split your palm open again.”
“You had no right to kiss me.”
Need pounded through him, making his body quake. He let go of her wrist. “I didn’t see you protesting too much.”
“I…I…” Her mouth opened and closed several times, but no words formed.
His gaze locked on her throat. The pulsing vein and the thundering of her heartbeat called to him. He licked his lips.
He stepped forward, gripped her arms and locked his gaze on hers. Her pupils contracted and then flooded open.
“You will go straight to the cabin. You will get your things and you will run. Run ‘til you get safe in your bed. And when you wake up in the morning, you will remember nothing.”
Her eyes glazed over and he eased his grasp on her. She picked up her sword and ran. A minute later, the light in the cabin flickered out and the door slammed. Sage didn’t dare let himself even breathe until he knew she’d gone, for fear that he would chase her down and ravish her.
When he no longer heard her footsteps, he fell to his knees and clutched the bloodied gauze she’d left behind. So long he had been in exile, underground. So long he’d denied himself the companionship of a woman. And here, in the middle of a glade, he’d found her. His heart’s desire was a human. What the hell was he going to do now?
I am not sure where to start with this novel! I absolutely loved everything! The cover is simple but elegant and I love that it does involve with what the story line is about. This is a fresh twist on your snow white fairy tale, you still have the beautiful snow but now instead of seven dwarfs they are actually her brothers who are vampire slayers. Who wouldn’t want to read a paranormal romance with all the aspects of a fairy tale lingo. Apparently this is book two and even though this can be read alone I will obviously want to go back and read book 1. So lets talk about what I really thought about this book.. I kind of felt sorry for Snow because all she want is to have a normal life but because her family was royalty (parents are dead) she is now having to take care of her seven brothers. Talk about a lot for someone to take on all at once. I love that she felt loyal to her family but at the same time you can see her courage show through. Even though she is only seen as one thing by her brothers and they want to protect her she will not let it stop her from doing what she wants. Sage has had to run away from the place he grew up due to a falling out and tragedy within his own royal family. However, when he finds out about Snow and her brothers he may see a new light at the end of his tunnel. Only problem is the one thing they slay is what he exactly is. How can this plan work? Will he be able to reclaim what is truly his or will there be a greater evil at play here working against him? You definitely need to read it because the author even through in a lovely twist along with there being love involved. The attraction between Snow and Sage is so strong you could feel it strongly throughout the book. As with the other characters each of them have their own uniqueness that brings more fulfillment to the story that to myself enticed me to want to continue it.
All of the descriptions the author tells you keeps it easy to follow along but also understand what exactly is happening within the story surrounding. You are able to create a mental picture of not just the characters but also the sceneries. In this novel you truly see a mixture of various paranormal feeling including vampires, our childhood fairy tale, magic, and shifters. I can’t wait to continue reading this series because there is more to be added, no this is not a cliffhanger but if you read the sypnosis you can tell that there will be more for the future, especially with all the different kings of various paranormal beings. Once I picked this up I didn’t let go, will you? Amazingly wonderful job to the author!
