Seriously if you love Reylo fanfic or just Reylo or just Adam Freaking Driver … Just do me a favor and read this and tell me what you think!!!
So, I talked to a few people who did not enjoy the slow burn, did not think it was smutty enough and also, did not love the ongoing miscommunication and misunderstanding.
However, it’s Reylo so I thought it fit and yes, it is GLORIOUS!!! Lol 🤣
This book is outstanding. A great piece of work. I have read the first 400 pages as a sampler Arc but I’m rereading super slow and just taking it all in. I’ll probably be slowly getting through this for another month.
So excited to read this! Just got into the first few chapters yesterday and it’s caught my interest. Looking forward to reading more today!
I love Marie Lu with all my heart and I do not understand how these beautiful books and amazing story are not more popular! This is the sequel to Skyhunter and it’s great. Basically war and monster like creatures and steel wings … it’s cool.
So basically that’s it! If you have read any of these please message me with spoiler free thoughts!!!
Thank you Netgalley and St. Martin’s Press for this incredible exclusive sample of the amazing Jay Kristoff’s new book, Empire of the Vampire!
Okay… oookkkaaaayy now…. I feel like this was the freaking best thing I’ve ever read and I only read the first 400 pages out of a little over 700 pages of this book. What do I say? How can I convince everyone reading my little review that this is a masterpiece? First, it’s Jay Kristoff… that’s point 1 in favor of this book. Second… Vampires. All kinds of Vampires! I’m serious, so many different Vampires happening here and honestly, what more do you need in your life? A home, food, clothing, job etc….. AND VAMPIRES!!!!
Literally sate your thirst by reading this book, obsessing possibly, and perhaps giving it a bite or two just to make sure these pages aren’t actually full of vampire blood that would make you immortal, incredibly sexy with amazing hair, and the ability of becoming simply a very cool person that everyone who sees you stops and stares, wondering Who is that gorgeous brilliant super intelligent person and how can I become their best friend?
Okay, so that’s actually just some bs if you can’t tell. This book centers on Gabriel. He is part vampire but is taught with others like him to fight and destroy the full blooded Vampires and the wretched(mindless creepers roaming and attacking innocents). They are taught all the skills to fight but really their biggest weapon is their faith in God which lights up the silver tattooed on their bodies that is quite destructive towards the Vampires.
The reader really meets Gabriel years later when he has somehow been caught by Vampires and the main thing he is going through is just telling his whole story to a chronicler (vampire) named Jean-Francois. This is really brilliant. The back and forth between these two mixed with Gabriel’s incredible story is simply hypnotizing in the sense, for me, that it kept me very interested and I did not want to stop reading…. (honestly if someone could just, you know, throw the last 300 pages In my direction that’d be really great…)
I do not want to go into anymore detail because I think the story should be shrouded in secrecy and mystery. If you order the book I suggest sitting in a dark cold room in a creaky chair and reading by the light of a single candle. Or, perhaps a comfy couch or chair with a blanket and pillows and a puppy or kitten curled up asleep in your lap. Just, whatever.
Obviously I recommend this! Collect your vials of blood and be prepared to stay up all night reading this awesome book!
