Dangerously sexy vampire Nicolai was renowned for his virility, but now fate has turned against The Dark Seducer. Cast out from his home, Nicolai has been doomed to become a sex slave in the magical kingdom of Delfina. All that remains of Nicolai's mind is the primal need for freedom, revenge - and the only woman who can help him. The vampire calls to Jane Parker in her dreams, drawing her to his dark sensuality - and towards Delfina. Yet life is anything but a fairytale for humans in the mystical land. And while Jane may be the key to unlocking Nicolai's memory, exploiting her means dooming the only mortal he craves. Royal House of Shadows: Once upon a dark time, they were the only hope to bring their kingdom back to the light.

Lord of the Vampires is one of the best books in its genre I’ve read in a long while.

From the very first page, the author wrenches you from reality and places you firmly in the world of Nicolai and Jane. Lord of the Vampires is filled with action and suspense…not to mention the scorching desire from both main characters.

Told in alternating POVs, the reader is allowed a glimpse into the inner workings of both protagonists, a rare opportunity to know exactly what the other is thinking. While at times this can be torturous and frustrating watching them miss-interpret the other, at other times it is nothing short of spectacular.  It is not only the POVs that alternate – the locations do also. The contrast between Jane’s mortal world and Nicolai’s magically one is written beautifully, the lines blurring until you forget what you read is fiction.

It was a pleasure to read and watch Jane and Nicolai’s characters blossom and grow, the banter between the two electric and flirty. What I found most enjoyable to read was the difference between Nicolai’s thirst for vengeance and familiarity with anger and hatred, and the tenderness he feels for Jane.

I adored Showalter’s new world and breed of vampire. I will certainly be awaiting the rest of the series with bated breath.

Excellent review! I adored this book, but I stalk Gena so it only made sense. Can't wait to see what you think of the next one.
