I love reading everything from fantasy to historical romances. On a constant quest for more books to read.
Take me down to Vampire City...
Vampires live only for lust and pleasure in the eternal twilight of Vamp City. But the city's magic is dying. The only person who can restore it? A beautiful woman from the mortal world...one who knows nothing of the power she wields.
Quinn Lennox is searching for a missing friend when she stumbles into a dark otherworld that only she can see—and finds herself at the mercy of Arturo Mazza, a dangerously handsome vampire whose wicked kiss will save her, enslave her, bewitch her, and betray her. What Arturo can't do is forget about her—any more than Quinn can control her own feelings for him. Neither one can let desire get in the way of their mission—his to save his people, hers to save herself. But there is no escape from desire in a city built for seduction, where passion flows hot and blood-red.
Welcome to Vamp City...
It all starts when the main characters brothers girlfriend goes missing into another world and they have to find her.
I hated the brother,its pretty evident he is a big man-child (even though he is 22 his sister still refers to him as a "kid") and its pretty obvious that that the main character has coddled him and fixes his messes without question.
"But if Zack gave the slightest hint that he would like her to follow him to California after he graduated,shed move.Just like that."
But he wouldnt.Zack had Lily now,if he didnt blow it with her.He didnt need his sister.Hed never really needed her.Not the way she needed him"
After this the author tries to smooth it over and further convince the reader of the sibling love with this passage
"the unspoken love they felt for one another sparkling in his eyes"
The love that he feels for his computer seems to overshadow his interest in his sister though.
"Hey sis,he greeted absently"
At wich the main character just shrugs and goes "Oh you.." while smiling. UGH.
But when his girlfriend vanishes of course big sis is there to straighten things out. They find themselves in a strange world (after the brother flings himself without thinking into a portal *facepalm*)
They arrive in a barren version of the city they left behind (washington) and are soon accosted by some weird persons who turn out to be vampires. In the confusion her brother disappears. (Why am I not surprised?) Leaving her to fend for herself,all seems lost when....
She is rescued(?) by another vampire who takes her to his home so he can feed off her. Because obviously duh now shes is slave.
But these vampires dont feed of blood,they feed of human emotions like fear,pain etc. Oh great...so not only vampires but vampires who are into hardcore bsdm.
I am sorry I couldnt read more of this book as I feared for my sanity if I had read any more of this. All I can advice you is to stay far far away from this book.
