"Addison Cain's writing blows me away each time!" NYT Bestselling author Anna Zaires
My love for her is forbidden.
When the princess was placed in my care, the devil ordered that I never show his daughter mercy, affection, or a gentle hand.
To keep her safe from the denizens of our dark king's Cathedral, Jade's life as my ward has been pitiless. She despises me.
Yet I am utterly, irrevocably in love.
Infamous for my coldness, unquestioned in my fealty, the devil forgets that there are older, more terrible monsters in the dark—and I have sold my soul to the most ancient of evil so that Jade might one day be mine.
CATHERDRAL is a standalone novel in the Cradle of Darkness series culminating in an HEA. The horror prequel, Catacombs, will enrich the experience of this book but is not necessary.
A Dark Vampire Tale with some Serious Bite
This was the continuation of Jade and Malcolm's story that we originally started in an earlier anthology.
This is that story from there repeated for clarity and flow and then it continues on to its conclusion which I was defiantly more than ready for.
So it’s the full book rather than the taster we were originally given.
This is dark and brutal and brutal and everything else you have come to expect from this particular author.
A riveting page-turner of a read than I inhaled in one complete sitting.
Darius was again the sadistic father of the year we have come to expect from our previous interactions with him, while Malcolm seemingly the king's right-hand vampire works behind the scenes protecting his beloved Jade.
Despite appearances to the contrary for him, she is what is important.
I really liked where this went and it was a satisfying conclusion for all involved.
Reading Catacombs the short story set in this world is not essential but will definitely enhance the whole experience giving you the insight to catch small nuances delivered here that you oversize might miss and also understand the back story itself.
This is definitely not going to be a story for everyone it's not pretty and certainly doesn't pull its punches in terms of its dark content but if you have read this author previously you will have an idea what you're in store for.
A dark vampire romance with some serious bite.
I voluntary reviewed a copy of Cathedral.
