A new slayer desperate to prove herself. A cursed vampire king waiting to be awakened. A kiss that would change everything.
I’m Delia Adams, daughter of one of the greatest slayers to have ever come out of Mallory Falls. I’ve been beaten down, broken, and told I wasn’t good enough while training to follow in his footsteps, but here I am, ready to embark on my first mission.
The problem? I’ve been tasked with killing the vampire king of Velum Mortis. Yeah, it kind of feels like I’m being set up to fail.
Now, standing in front of the slumbering king, desperate to prove myself, I prepare to shove my sword right through his heart and claim my first victory.
I’m a slayer. He’s a vampire. It’s my duty to kill him.
So then why is the urge to abandon my mission and kiss him so damn strong?
Beyond the Veil is an adult vampire romance novel that was loosely based on the fairy tale Sleeping Beauty. It contains mature content, adult language, and violence. Though this is the first book in the Vampires of Velum Mortis series, it can be read as a standalone.
Not a bad story. Held my attention. A few repeated things in the book but not bad. First read by this author. May read more.
I just couldn’t like it
The storyline was very intriguing, but the characters were just awful. The heroine was immature and whiny. The bad guys read like grade school bullies. This put me in the mindset of a young adult/teenager novel.
