Would you sacrifice your freedom to save your family? When vampires are slaves, and humans are acting like monsters, it's a dangerous game to love your Mistress.
In a divided paranormal London, Light is the bad boy vampire of the Blood Lifer world, but then for the first time he becomes the hunted, not the hunter. When he’s bought by his Mistress, Light fights to escape. If he doesn’t, he’ll never solve the conspiracy behind the Blood Club.
London, Primrose Hill. Grayse is the slaver’s daughter. She buys Light, like he’s a pair of designer shoes. So why does Light feel so drawn to her? Especially when his family is still in chains. Will he risk everything – even his new love – to save them?
A stunning revelation leads Light to the dark heart of the Blood Club. If he can face his worst terrors, he can save his family and whole species from slavery.
Maybe he can even save himself. (Goodreads)
This is the second book in the rebel vampire series. I did enjoy it a touch more than the first, although I still do not prefer the journalist format. It made it hard for me to truly get into the story, as I tended to lose interest. While this installment does have more action and a smidgen more dialogue, it was very much Shadows journal to his master’s daughter.
The time setting is after the loss from book one, and Light is captured. Renamed Shadow as a slap in the face, due to his name being Light. I really didn't think I would like Grayce much, but I think she grew on me. Still not overly excited about slavery, it is a bit odd to me how one can form such a connection to the one holding him captive, it's too much like Stockholm Syndrome Romance for my tastes. I think that may be on me, not being a fan of such books.
The ending was wrapped up nicely, and I think Sun will make Light a nice companion. There is the same amount of colloquialisms peppered throughout this book, but it was expected. I am curious to what Light and his new family will be up to next. Ms. Johns does have a unique way to tell a story, with plenty of fresh twists.
