While the Blood King lives, no one is safe.
Sybille Esmond never wanted to inherit her family's weird business: summoning spirits of the undead and guiding them to the afterlife. While it pays the bills, dealing with supernatural monsters comes with colossal risks, including becoming undead herself.
When tall, dark, and undead Elis Tanner, a reformed member of the soulless ever-after, invades Sybille's life, bringing with him a possessive, disembodied ex-wife, those risks get complicated, and those complications become dangerous.
Sybille must aid Elis in confronting his jealous ex while also investigating the Blood King, a beast who refuses to die—by stake or by poison.
After a harrowing possession leaves her burned and bruised, Sybille finds herself drawing closer to the tempting Elis, who may be the only one capable of helping her kill the unkillable. With the Blood King and his legions of undead closing in, she discovers her own life is far from the only thing in jeopardy.

The Blood King is the promising start to a new series by Amber K. Bryant. I found myself sucked into the story from the start. Very entertaining with a unique spin on vampires. Can’t wait to read more adventures with Sybille & Elis!
This was a debut novel for this author, and I have to say, it was quite thrilling. This wasn’t your average paranormal story. It was different from the norm and I very much enjoyed that. I also loved the characters, especially the main ones, mostly Sybille and Elis. Their back and forth and the way they connected was made this that much more enjoyable to read. And the excitement throughout made you not want to put it down. I look forward to the next one!
