When Tardieh discovers a letter from his late father, he opens a door to old memories. The letter from Petran is a tale of intrigue, attempted murder, and betrayal, but leaves more questions than answers in its wake. Petran, the King of Vampires, an ancient monarch known for his cunning ploys and many lovers, knows the animosity between draconians and vampires is brewing in Romania.
Upon discovering his draconian neighbor has fallen ill with a strange Curse, Petran is determined to discover the cause, and a cure. In doing so, he finds an unexpected ally in his neighbor’s daughter, a striking Draconian Duchess. All Lady Natalia, the Duchess of Moldavia, wants is to save her people from a Dragon Lord’s tyranny but she’s only a woman, who has no place meddling in politics.
With his health failing, her father has big plans for her, so when the King of Vampires agrees to help her find a cure for the Curse plaguing her people and her father, Talia begins to see him as more than an old family friend. He awakens desires in her she knows she should not have but cannot resist, or deny him.
With utmost skill, Phoenix has delivered the origins of this amazing saga in a most magical and historical-fiction fashion! Petran and Natalia are surrounded by every reason imaginable not to become involved, but going against all odds always makes life more interesting. It was wonderful to get the story from the beginning, and the author has tagged my favorite genre in the process. While still saddened from the losses that occurred in the previous installment, reading about Tardiegh’s father was enthralling. I loved the characters, the intrigue, betrayal, and passion!
As usual, the writing style and descriptive nature pulled me in immediately, not letting go until the page was blank. The paranormal hierarchy and races are uniquely intertwined with legend and histories that existed, or could be imagined from reality. I just adore this author, and she ended this in Ella style; Leaving me wanting more!
Great read & you’re just NUTS if you don’t get it while it’s free!
Vampire Legacy (Book 4)
About the Author
I was just nine years old when I discovered my passion for the paranormal world. That passion led me to a bachelor’s degree in Performing Arts where I had my first taste in writing, conjuring children’s plays and re-writing Shakespearean masterpieces to suit the modern times (Yes, he’s still cringing in his grave).
After years travelling around the world, translating other people’s novels and devouring paranormal romances, I realized the real world wasn’t fun without a touch of magic, and decided to purge my own crazy stories into paper, well, into word doc, to be more precise. My busy life with a demanding full time job and a very loving husband (I’m so not complaining!) doesn’t allow me much spare time, but somehow every night I find myself in front of the computer, exorcising the millions of stories stored in my sanity-challenged mind.
My novels are tales of love and passion between strong female leads and hot heroes, bathed in paranormal magic, of course. I live in Sydney, Australia, the land of koalas (which are not bears), kangaroos (which are not boxing champions) and Vegemite (a black spread that should have never been invented. Seriously, don’t try it).
