Reign of the Vampires Review

REIGN of the VAMPIRES by Rebekah R. Ganiere
The Society Book 1
Published November 17, 2014 by Kensington Publishing Corp

"While the idea may have been done before, the aspects in which it was written are quite original."

Synopsis -

She wants security. He wants freedom. Together their love could destroy the world.

Ten years after the outbreak of the V2000 virus turns the majority of humans into a mutated Vampire sub-species, the last remaining true humans are the world's hottest commodity. In this new world, it's The Society that rules.

Being the only female Vampire Lord in America isn't easy. Being thrust into the role of CEO is even harder. Danika Chekov refuses to let her father's legacy die. She’s resolved to keep everything under her tight control. But after she's almost killed, she’s forced to purchase a human guardian.

Mason is human, or so the Vampires think. He’s determined to protect his secret, but Lord Danika buys him before he can make his escape. Their passion for each other threatens everything they want most. And when Mason’s true nature is exposed, the results could be devastating. (Goodreads)

Review -

Set in a scene similar to that of the movie Daybreak with even more twists and turns that will have readers glued to the page and anxious to see what happens next. Reign of the Vampires is an Urban Fantasy novel that touches on the topics of prejudice, racism(specism), hatred and fear. Vampires are now the rulers of the world. Not only are humans almost at the point of extinction, but the majority that are left are nothing more than slaves. While most of them might be living quite comfortably, there is nothing like having your freedom.

Lord Danika Chekov is not only the youngest Coven Lord, but also the only female. In a world of where most of the men are one hundred years of age or more, to say that some of them are still set in there old fashioned ways where women were not seen as rulers in the slightest, could prove to be a deadly understatement. And to keep her place in this new world proving her worth may not be good enough. A fact she learns the hard way when it is demanded of her to pick a mate. While their are plenty of males for her to choose from that are suitable for her needs, both her heart and body are drawn to her guardian, Mason. A mysterious male slave that she knows is much more than human, though not exactly what, since he is not a vampire her ruling class will never allow such a mating to happen. Though if Danika cannot find out who has been releasing rogues within her territory and someone out to take her life, that may be the very least of her worries.

Mason has spent centuries living in solitude, away from his own kind, vampires and humans alike. Until a group of renegade humans take him in and one fatal trip for supplies puts them on a path that ends with his ultimate undoing. When he finds himself once again a slave for the Vampires, he wants nothing more than to escape. Up until his new master walks through the door and he sees it is the female he felt drawn to from the moment their eyes met. Being her guardian is not something he ever planned, but the longer he is around her, the more he realizes just who and what she is to him, and so does the thing that lives inside of him. Keeping ahold of his secret has now become more important than ever, for if anyone finds out who he truly is, Danika's life could be in jeopardy. Though with the dangers she ends up facing, unleashing that which lives inside of him may be her only hope.

Reign of the Vampires is one of the most original vampire novels I have read in a long while, one that will have readers guessing up until the very end; Who and what is Mason? Who is behind the rogue attacks? What really happened to Danika's parents'? An edge of your seat thrilling, chilling ride. Lust, love, blood, violence, betrayal, intrigue and plenty of mystery, all the qualities of a true vampire novel. Even though this may be only the first book in this series', it certainly does not have the slow feel of one, and gives readers enough information to know exactly what is, and has been, going on. A true must-read for real vampire lovers.
