Kael the Fair, Warrior King of the Vampires, Chieftain of Clan MacQuillan needs to drink a virgin’s blood or his mate’s blood in order to keep his immortality. However, he doesn’t want another mate after he lost his first one in a battle against the Soul Eaters; they are a vampire type that kills their prey while taking their blood, consuming their souls along with their bodies.
And because Kael doesn’t want a mate, he uses the virgin’s blood of a Proffered, a group of virgin girls trained to offer their blood to vampires. The Proffered is a branch of Electorate Council, human families around the world in alliance with the vampires. Yet, this night he finds his mate and he has to choose… his mate or a life of unhappiness.
Ms. Laura Kaye created a wonderful and torrid scene, when Kael claimed Shayla’s virginity; Shayla is the Proffered who turned out to be his mate. The scene was full of emotion, sentiment, and sizzling hot. However, I must admit I was expecting more action… they were fighting against the Soul Eaters, so I was assuming that there would at least be a fight between the two sides; but there was no fight. I will rate the book just 4 stars because of that; but, I will check Ms. Laura Kaye’s next book in this series, because I like her style.
