It begins in pain. Pain and horror. Evie has never known such pain before, but she knows she will endure it. Soon, soon he will find her and this will end. That she must believe. For her delivery from this pain will be either when he finds her, the Vampire King, or when she dies. But the story doesn’t end there, it is only the beginning, for we soon find ourselves going back three weeks, to a tale of magic and power, of struggles for the right to rule and of the dark side of a world that coexists with our human one.
Evie is a writer, she writes vampire novels and she loves what she does. So it is surprising that one day a man walks into a coffee shop, and her life, that is a walking breathing version of the vampires she portrays in her novels. The difference is, he really is a vampire. Roman isn’t just any vampire, he is the Vampire King and every inch of him proclaims it. And he is destined to find her and claim her for his own.
There is just one thing that stand in their way, a warlock that vows to do whatever he can to prevent Roman from coming to his full power and glory. This is one warlock that will stop at nothing, not even Evie’s death, to prevent Roman from uniting with the one woman he is meant to find. Roman may be ruthless at times, but he will not risk Evie’s death at the evil ones hands. And that is precisely what he is gambling on.
With nothing less than a god that is a King of gods and a witch that has outlived most others to partake in the battle, we soon know that Evie is more than the simple human we and she thinks herself to be. Where this will lead and how it will be resolved is a tale that twists and turns with a cast of fantastic characters, rich landscapes and more mystery than anyone could ever hope to unravel with ease. The beginning of a rich new series, The Vampire King will entice you into a world of magic and mystery, with plenty of room for lust, love and romance as well.
