Book #3 in the Dead in the City: Published 3/3/15: 320 pages
I borrowed this book from my library
Sadie Pemberton is the DJ at the hottest vampire club in New York City, and she loves her freedom almost as much as she hates werewolves. She has no desire to tie herself to anyone for eternity—even the deliciously sexy Killian Bane—werewolf prince and heir apparent who has been sent to patrol the city.
But Sadie bears the mark of the moon—the mark that Killian has been looking for, the mark that’s meant to reveal his perfect mate. How can the fates be so cruel? Even more importantly, how is he ever going to change her mind?
This is probably my favorite book in the series that I’ve read thus far. This one really clicked for me and I think it had to do with it being a bit less serious for much of the book. Sure the tension ratcheted up at the end, but the majority of the story was centered around the pairing up of this fun couple. The writing style is also starting to remind me of some of my favorite authors like Alexandra Ivy, Jacqueline Rhoades, and even Kerrelyn Sparks. If you enjoy any of the previous authors I highly suggest giving this one a try too.
I loved this couple! Killian was so much fun; strong and cocky, yet realistic and vulnerable as well. Humphreys did an excellent job of creating a crush-worthy male lead with this one. Then there was Sadie who was typical to this series in that she held a twist in her turning or heritage that made so much more than met the eye. This author does a great job of taking diversity and bringing it to light for us to examine. The problems might be paranormal ones, but the parallels can be drawn for our own reality. I appreciate the questions this author brings up about tolerance and choosing to be progressive and change for the greater good. I love the lessons she is teaching us through her highly entertaining story.
Like I said much of this story followed a more light-hearted plot, dealing with relationship drama. There was great tension between these two, some still corny lines and plenty of steam. Near the end we got to deal with the major drama between the two races, but like most romance everything comes together at the end. There are some great relationships, romantic and platonic, to explore in this world and I’m looking forward to the next book in the series.
