Released: October 2, 2012
Genre: Urban Fantasy
Series: Dorina Basarab #3
Published by Penguin
Dory wakes up in a lab with no idea of who she is or where she is with a red headed vampire crashing in saying he is trying to save her. But that is least of Dory’s problems, with the Fey plotting and the vampires scheming Dory may just be facing an enemy she can’t defeat.
I have been waiting for this book for so long! The Dorina Basarab series has definitely become one of the my favourite urban fantasy’s. Packed full of manic action that gets your adrenal glands pumping, interspersed with funny, romantic and tender moments to soften the frantic pace; it is a rollercoaster of a read.
So much happens in this book; we breach the subject of Dory’s vampire side, something that I hope you be explored more in the next book. We also see Dory’s relationship with her father, Mircea, developing beautifully, as well as things between her and Louis Cesare really heating up. Dory alse seems to have acquired a vampire servant, Ray, and I doubt if I am alone in saying the hilarious, but sometimes touching, banter between Ray and Dory were some of my favourite parts.
What I really like about this series is that each book builds up from the next one; the relationships between the characters gets more complex and intense; the various factions and plots are getting more intricate and Dory’s character has come to vivid life as we get to know her more deeply.
I am now dying to read the next book as Fury’s Kiss had some highly unexpected events take place at the end and I can’t wait to see what will happen next!
