Review + Giveaway ~ The Vampire King Trilogy by Kenya Wright


A domina’s only purpose in life was to birth vampire children for the Quiet King. Any human woman with the domina gene spent their lives in the castle under strict rules and the guards’ watchful eyes. Brie has been a domina for two years. After witnessing the slaughter of babies, she plans to escape and seeks help from Samuel, a vampire known for aiding many out of slavery.

However, Samuel has only one policy. He won’t help dominas escape the king. The penalty is too high and their blood triggers powers in him that he doesn’t want released. So Brie is forced to lie about being a domina and Samuel is lured in by her blood. Something emerges within them that they can’t deny, overwhelming their every cell and igniting an all-consuming hunger that neither can flee.
 
I stumbled across a great book review for this book; I just had to read it – immediately. I ventured to the authors website seeking additional information on the book & discover more great news…It is part of a Trilogy – that’s right we get 3 installments.

As I am sure you are aware the book market has been flooded with Vampire books, but the author has put just enough of a twist on this paranormal tale to keep make it her own. As a reader, I often feel overwhelmed with information (even critical information) necessary to build the world, characters, background, and plotlines; this author summarized the entire history of vampire/human evolution in 2 paragraphs.

I also want to comment on the illustrations; they are fabulous! The author has a few samples on her website which you can view by clicking here.

I Can't Wait for the Next installment...Captured.
Can she escape him or was she captured the whole time?

Brie and Samuel travel to the human town of Freemont and learn that Brie is being hunted. Brie is more than a domina. But what is she? And why is she being hunted as if she is the solution to a puzzle that the Quiet King has never been able to solve?

Samuel and Brie are forced to align with another, one that holds many answers and incites even more questions. Their journey drags them back to Capitol City and among the night life where sex and secrets mingle together within the light of the two moons. All this time Brie thought she’d escaped and gotten away free from vampires. But can she run away anymore or was she captured the whole time?
 

Typically I don’t say this but, this is not a standalone - DO NOT READ THIS without first reading Escape. I was excited to discover that Captured pickup where Escape left off; without missing a beat. Once you open this book there is no stopping point – it is an adrenaline rush – so make sure you allot adequate reading time. The author kept the characters, plot, and pace from the first book and added more fervor.

Blood paints the Quiet King’s castle. People flee the city. War will come. The only question is where and who will be on each side?

Brie, Samuel, and Ian return for the final installment of the Vampire King trilogy where all mysterious are solved and further secrets revealed.
 

When I first discovered this Trilogy I was excited that there was going to be at least 3 installments; now I am sad that there is only going to be 3 installments. {With sad pleading eyes} I beg MORE PLEASE. While I felt that the author did an outstanding job of bring this trilogy to a close…I know that there surely must be more adventures that these wonderful characters want to share with us readers. The world this author created is to incredible to not revisit.
