Abduction of Two Rulers (Thrones of Blood Book 3) by Nancy Kilpatrick
Published by Crossroad Press on 14th June 2018
309 pages

Serene is still imprisoned in her grandfather’s land and Sapien Queen, Blanka and the Vampir King, Thanatos have been captured by parties unknown. But when information is uncovered that one of the Vampire and Sapien kingdoms are working together to takeover the country, the others have to work together to stop it happening.
Queen Blanka was a likeable character and whilst naïve with the ways of the other kingdoms, she was quick to find an ally in Thanatos who ruled his Kingdom fairly. With King Moarte, still trying to reinforce his defences against his Sapien father in law, he has not got much time to help rescue the others. Although it was good seeing the Belladonna, Valada and Serene all working together ready to kick ass
This series just got better. I was able to get back into the story quickly as it continued where the second book finished. Whilst there were sex scenes, there were not as many due to the story concentration on the upcoming war. The story was full of action and the torture scenes were dark and graphic, there were times that even though he was a vampire, you wander how Thanatos could survive.
A great read and hope to read more

Moarte the King of the Vampires was still recovering after been held captive by the Sapiens. Princess Valada born Sapien hated vampires, after one killed her mother, but when her father gave her to them as part of a deal to save his life, is this the chance that Moarte needs to seek his revenge and will Valada find out who killed her mother.
Todays market is flooded with fluffy vampire tales so when a book that shows the dark side comes along then it needs to be snapped up and read. Moarte was a good leader, strong, stubborn but did show constraint. As you learn what Valada did to him you could understand his anger. Valada was a Sapien version of him and at the start, you could sense the conflict when they collided. A calming influence was Belladonna, Moarte mom and she reminded me of a wise old lady, she would give her council freely and whilst her son ruled, she helped behind the scenes.
From page one you are drawn into the vampir world and whilst some of what they did was harsh, it is not till you read about the Sapiens life under King Zador that you realise who the evil ones are. The story will have you gripped as whilst you want to know if Moarte of Valada will kill each other, the lives of the other vampir are as interesting. This story is not for your regular erotica fans as some of the scenes were savage and if you get distressed with scenes of rape then this is not the book for you. However, these scenes helped tell Moarte and Valada’s story and I personally grew to like Valada once I understood what happened to her. This story captures the majority of emotions and you are taking on an exciting journey, the action is bloody and fierce. A good story that has got some great characters.

18 years after Revenge of the Vampir King, Moarte and Valada are now parents to Serena. Blinded by their love of her, they do not know what type of daughter she is. But they have a urgent mission and need her to grow up quickly and with help from Wolfsbane can she be the Princess that every ones wants.
From the moment I started this story I wanted to give Serena a good slapping, An obnoxious bratty irritating girl who because she was a princess treated everyone like dirt. Vampires and Sapiens despised her so when her parents needed her to grow up they did not know how hard it would be. Wolfsbane was well liked by all, but after losing his 1st love he took on the task of Serena as doing his duty, not realising how much hard work she will be. Wolfsbane whilst a character I recognised from book 1 became a main character and I loved learning more about his human life and admired his restraint with Serena.
I enjoyed this story more than the first one, although some of the scenes between Serena and the Sapien king and warriors were quite disturbing. Again this showed how evil the Sapiens were. The story flowed a lot a quicker as the vampires planned their attack. As the story continues I grew to like Serena and it felt that a switch clicked in her and she did come more mature. I read this book pretty quick as I wanted to know what happened, I was all set for a possible escape and it ended on a cliff-hanger. I hope I do not have to wait to long to find out if Serena is OK.

Seven objects crafted to hold the deadly sins. Cursed concentrates on two of these items, the amulet and the lollipop. As this story progresses you get to know how much damage the items can do to people’s lives. The fairytales covered are Beauty and the Beast, Hansel and Gretel, Rumpelstiltskin, and Snow White but as you read it other fairy tales characters appear.
The merging of the fairytales, made this an interested read. As 4 major fairy tales are covered in the story, there are quite a few characters. Most of these characters were out for personal gain and were not afraid to stab others in the back to get what they want. One was George, a character that you will love to hate. He would hurt anyone who got in his way and surprisingly he still managed to get people to help him with his task. One of my favourite characters was Finnr who sacrificed his own happiness to save others and I hope that he makes an appearance in future books.
As advertised this is a revamp of Haunting Fairytales, so if you have read this series you will find parts of the story familiar. However, the author has change some of the character’s names and added extra scenes. Whilst the prior series was suitable for teenagers, this new series is steered towards the 18+ market due to the added erotica. Whilst it was written in taste, I personally did not think it added anything to the story, but erotica fans will love it. The action in this book seems more intense than in the previous edition. If you like you fairy tales and love the merging of stories, then get this book. I am interested to see what revamp she has done with the rest of the stories and how the cursed items affect the land of Cantata

Ever wondered about the story of the woman who cursed the Beast from Beauty and the Beast. If you have then this is the book for you.

Like a lot of women in this time, Felicity is having an arranged marriage. With excitement, she travels to Beau to marry a young handsome duke. However, things are not what they seem and whilst she is disappointed with her fiancé, Alistair the handsome prince catches her eye and drawn into his mysterious ways starts a love affair that changes her life for ever.

It is not often that I change my views on a character but this is one time that I have. At the start of the story I felt sorry for Felicity as the life she had with the Duke was not a happy one, but as the story progress her jealousy made her petty and spiteful.  I could not take to Alistair as I did not know if he was playing a game with Felicity’s emotions or if he was pressured into being with Anne.

This book is a great introduction to the Haunting Fairy Tales. RL Weeks has done it again, with her spin on a popular fairy tale. Her taking a minor character from Beauty and the Beast and making it into a story that had it all, action, love, hate. One difference with this book to others I have read by this author was the erotica theme running through this story. The scenes were tastefully written and helped explain Felicity’s life and the reasons behind her choices.

A well written quick read that can be read wherever you are on the Haunted Fairytale journey

What if you find your boyfriend murdered and you know who did it but he made you forget with a kiss? This is the dilemma that Chloe had. But when she finds out that two sexy handsome demons are involved, Chloe does not know whether to run, fight or be loved.

Chloe was devastated when she loses Jake, and whilst she tried to tell everyone what happened no one believed and just wanted to dope her up. Even her best friend Zelda was worried, but she was more concerned about the constant visits from Miles who helped her overcame her grief. However, you could tell that she still had a crisis of conscious when she was with Miles. Miles although a demon was caring and considerate, but possible that was down to the heritage of his parents. For him falling in love with a human was frowned upon, but this did not stop him pursuing Chloe. Things became more confusing for Chloe when Grail decided to pay her attention. Grail was very full of himself and I think he toyed with Chloe’s guilt. He was like a cat playing with a mouse. Although whilst reading this story I thought she was one lucky girl

The sex scenes were hot but what do you expect when one of the demons is a succubus. The ending had one unexpected twist which completed this story. As a novella, this was a quick read and it was a good introduction to the authors writing skills as a collaboration. If you like your demons hot and spicy then this is the book for you.

Emeline was in the wrong place at the wrong time, caught up in a witch hunt and cursed to walk the earth as a vampire. Whilst find a cure for her curse, she loses someone she loved, vowed never to love again, she hurts others before they can hurt her. Born to serve is her only friend and servant Marie who she saved from death many years before. After moving to a quiet town in England, she puts her plan into action to make their friendship eternal, but after meeting Matt a troubled young man whose family is falling apart, she stops to think about who she really is. Does Emeline go with her plan? Is Matt her saviour? and where is Matt’s missing sister?

Emeline is a complex woman, from the moment she got cursed she knew what she was doing was wrong, however she needed to survive. After the loss of first love her whole nature changes and she becomes heartless. However, I think that was just to protect herself from the hurt and underneath her evilness she was still a scared young woman. Only when she was with Marie do we see her carefree nature and this showed more after she met Matt. Matt had so many problems at home, a missing sister, a mom who had spiralled into a deep depression and a dad that had a fascination with a younger woman. Matt brought out the best in Emeline, and what started out as escapism soon turned into something else, but was it love or lust.

The further you get into the story more characters appear, Ti a warlock infatuated with Emeline and Lilith a love-struck witch to name but a few, but with all the additional character it does not make this book confusing as the authors tie up their involvement neatly. Added to this is further magical creatures, all having an important role in this story   About 2/3rds into the story there is a scene that shocked me as I could not believe what the authors had done with Emeline but further on and with a great twist the story gives you an explanation of Matt’s missing sister. There is so many twist in this story that it makes it a page turner as you don’t know what to expect. This book ticks all the right boxes. Paranormal, erotica, horror, mystery and fantasy. This will please so many different readers and with a cliff-hanger that makes you wander where this story will go, I can’t wait for book 2
