This first book in a hot, edgy, dark paranormal romance series from a debut author has all the right stuff: a deep urban fantasy feel, a take-no-crap tough heroine and a sexy, arrogant vampire king who gets his comeuppance.
Isabel Anthony has lived a carefree existence masquerading as human, but when this party-girl meets the king of vampires, her world turns deep, dark, and dangerous double-quick. Thad Morgan is looking for the prophesied mate who will unlock his powers. But when he finally finds Isabel in a seedy nightclub, he thinks fate must have gotten it wrong.
Mismatched vampire lovers find romance and danger in the midst of a secret war against genocidal wizards in Staab s debut. Newly anointed vampire king Thad Morgan is appalled to find his prophesied mate, Isabel Anthony, orphaned and estranged from her racial community and hiding among Orlando s ravers and kinksters. Not thatIsabel has little desire to be a vampire queen, but her connection to Thad makes her a target for wizard assassins who gain power through blood sacrifice. Though the vampire society is somewhat shallowly depicted and its centuries-old denizens dialogue jarringly modern, Thad s struggle to protect his remaining subjects and his awkward courtship of independent Isabel are engaging. A strong cast of supporting characters includes Thad s powerful half-human sister, Tyra; Lee, his buddy and bodyguard; Isabel s human friend Alexia; and Anton, estranged son of the wizard leader. They broaden the focus and provide intriguing teasers for further books in this promising new paranormal series.

King of darkness lacking
Too much too fast couldn't get involved w any of the characters because it skipped around soooo much. Has good theory an potential but never allowed you to get really engrossed because just too many stories going on.
