Three years ago, Sebastian Beaumont, was starving and struggling on the streets. An offer for safety and shelter was nothing but the lies of a vampire. Since then, he’s been trapped, surrendering his blood and body as a blood slave to vampires, all for the hope of gaining one more day of life and maybe, someday, his freedom.
Having crossed more than three hundred years of life, Valentin Wyndham, is a prince among vampires. Memories of betrayal still haunt him and love isn’t something he seeks. When his need for blood becomes too strong, he breaks his usual habits and visits a blood house. Though he tries to resist, he can’t help but be captivated by the beautiful Sebastian.
Unable to deny the intensity between them, Valentin frees Sebastian from the blood house, but danger follows them both from those who don’t want to let Sebastian go.
Sebastian was taken and made to be a blood slave by a evil vampire. He has been hurt so many times he has resigned himself to his fate having no hope of ever escaping that is until Prince Valentin comes to visit him and has a instant attraction to Sebastian.
I have to say I loved this vampire world this author created in this book. It was gritty but also sweet too especially with the way Valentin treats Sebastian. There were also very steamy parts in this book between these two men that were so very hot but there was also action in this book too which had me on the edge of my seat hoping for the best for these two men!
I loved the way this author wrote these characters and this story! You get your good guys but you also get your bad ones too. I really can’t wait for the next book, this is me hoping there will be one about a certain demon lol because I really loved his character too! I really do not want to give away any spoilers because this book was so good you really need to read this one for yourself especially if you love vampire books like I do. So I will leave this review with I 100% loved this book and I would definitely recommend it!
Despite what the cover of this book looks like, this was a surprisingly light story. I loved all of the characters. Valentin is looking for something, but doesn’t know it. I really like that he was not the stereotypical vampire – dominant character. He was kind, gently, hot, sexy and loving – He was even, at times, playful!
Then you have Sebastian – a starving human who is just trying to survive. He knows that his time is limited, he wants to find a way out, but also is a fighter and wants to survive.
The relationship is both necessary and loving. But, since Valentin has a past of being hurt, his friends are somewhat wary of Sebastian.
I LOVED the secondary characters – Sal and his pet Beezie were wonderful and I really, really hope that Sal gets his own book. Then you have Basil and he’s quirky, snarky and lovely. I also want to know more about Calvin. Overall, I really enjoyed this book and hope that some of these secondary characters get to become main characters in their own stories.
Be warned that there is some abuse in this book.
There no question that S.J. Frost is one of my favorite authors. I’ve never been one to read vampire stories but S.J. Frost is a must read for me. I immediately fell in love with Sebastian, Bastian as his vampire prince called him. But Valentin was just off the wall and I loved him too. The sex between Valentin and Bastian was so crazy HOT that I swear it just wanted to burn up mu iPad. Can’t wait for the next in the series and I’m hoping it will Sal and Calvin. This is a must read for all vampire lovers.
