With the threat of the vampire monarchy becoming stronger every day, the Black Lily must take drastic measures. As the leader of the underground resistance, Arabelle concocts the perfect idea to gain the attention of the Glass Tower. Her plan? Attend the vampire prince’s blood ball and kill him. Fortunately for Prince Marius, her assassination goes awry, and Arabelle flees, leaving behind only her dagger.

Marius is desperate to find the woman whose kiss turned into attempted murder, hunting for the mysterious assassin he can’t push out of his mind. But what he uncovers could change the course of his life forever...

Another great read by Juliette Cross! Beautifully written with a fast, smooth flowing plot, plenty of twists, thrilling action and fleshed out characters, I devoured every page. Ms Cross perfectly balanced each element to create a fantastic read!

Arabelle is as determined as she is beautiful, and is solely focused on creating an equal world for all with the support of the resistance, but her feelings for Prince Marius keep getting in the way. Prince Marius is used to others obeying his every word and being revered, so it is a surprise when Arabelle is not in awe of him.

Where what once seemed black and white becomes shades of grey for both Arabelle and Prince Marius, I was captivated and intrigued as the story unfolded. Add an arranged married to a vampire princess and an outbreak of vampire blood lust fever, and the tale becomes thoroughly addictive.

I would highly recommend this book for anyone who loves a great romance in a fairytale retelling with a vampire twist.

I thought it was interesting how they did a vampiric adaptation of Cinderella and added in a few more unique fairytales. And yet despite being similar, this is definitely not the cinder girl I remember. Marius is my favorite in this whole thing. He's ignorant of what goes on in his own kingdom but he's still innocent in all it, willing to make it right and correct the wrong. His heroine, and leader of the Black Lily, was all for justice and righteousness. She wasn't as endearing as Marius but I did love her passion and the things she brought to light.

I liked the way it was written, a slow and steady pace that built up the suspense and mystery as to who- or what -was exactly causing the chaos between the vampires and humans. A hot, dark and entertaining story to check out for sure.

5.0 out of 5 stars Cinderella Like You've Never Seen Her Before 27 March 2017
By Rhenna Morgan - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Whoa boy! Cinderella's story got turned on its head in the best way possible with this one. I'd been on the hunt for a good vampire story for a while, so when I had a chance to grab an Advance Release Copy from Juliette, I jumped all over it. Yowza! What a freakin' ride!

First, let's talk about the heroine, Arabelle. She's a badass. Fearless and courageous in championing her fellow humans. Then there's Marius--the vampire prince Arabelle originally set out to kill. How can you NOT love an alpha hero who goes on the hunt for a woman NOT because she tried to kill him, but because he wants more of the passion he found in their first kiss. Oh, yeah. I do love a chase. Or maybe I should say what comes at the end of the chase and Marius didn't disappoint. The chemistry between the two was smoking hot and the slow build as the they came together was exceptionally exquisite!

Two other things you should know about this book. First, if you enjoy well developed secondary characters, this book is rich in them. Nikolai was my favorite, (I'm gonna bet he's a dark and dirty type. Or maybe that's just my hope for a future book) but they were all unique and promised many opportunities for future books.

Second, can I just say that Juliette can do some phenomenal world building? It's so easy for me to get lost in the worlds she creates, and while the concept of vampires isn't a new one, she makes it her own with loads of creative nuances.

Truly, this is going to be a fantastic series. Yes, it's built on the Cinderella tale (with other books planned to follow other stories), but don't let that trick you into thinking you'll figure out how things end. Cinderella is just a jumping off point for an amazingly sensual romance that will keep you turning the pages straight to THE END.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Start to a New Series!! 2 April 2017
By Jan KC - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Paranormal is like fudge for me. Rich, decadent pleasure. Simply put, The Black Lily reminded me of that delightful treat. I had a hard time putting it down. This carefully woven tale is why I love paranormal, but specifically, vampires so much. Throw in medieval and Regency into the mix, and I'm so hooked.

Others have beautifully sketched the story, but I have to add that Marius is simply a hero that you need to experience. Throw in a heroine, aka Arabelle, who defines all that's courageous and pure and forthright, and I was mesmerized from the start. Truthfully, I wondered how these two would manage their HEA. But, Juliette delivers it brilliantly and will spin a tale that will leave you begging for more.

I'm anxiously awaiting the next in the series. The secondary characters practically simmer on the page. Always a sign of a good story! I'm hoping Nikolai is next up.

If you're looking for a carefully crated romance with a world built upon fantasy, historical, and paranormal, then look no further. I hope you love this story as much as I do.

5.0 out of 5 stars I now love vampires. 5 April 2017
By Cd Brennan - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
In all honesty, I've never been a huge vampire fan. BUT! There is something different about these vamps set in an historical fantasy that breathes new life into them. While reading, I wanted to believe in these creatures that I had so easily disregarded before. Perhaps its the different setting, perhaps the time rings truer for me, but now, I am in love with her vampires. I'm in love with her vampires! Ms. Cross engages us from the first page with a prologue that whispers of a great series to come. This first book left me a bit breathless with its lovely prose, vivid characters, and passionate dialogue. I was thoroughly enthralled with Arabella, Marius, and the Black Lily rebellion. Can't wait for the next book! Will it be the lieutenant? ;-)

5 vampy stars for an unforgettable read.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic start to an awesome new series by Juliette Cross!! 2 April 2017
By Karen Morris - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I devoured this book!!! Glass slippers are traded for golden daggers, and handsome princes to sexy vampires, turning this classic fairy tale into a nail-biting book one of the Black Lily’s revolution. Full of twists and turns, witty dialog, and did I mention vampires? Arabelle is Cinderella like you've never seen before, leading a resistance to the evil lurking in the kingdom. But who's actually behind the blood madness might just surprise you...This is a fantastic, fresh and sexy retelling of a story we all know and adore, and one I highly recommend!

5.0 out of 5 stars Simply Stunning 4 April 2017
By nikki levek - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
An absolutely stunning retelling of Cinderella. Beautifully written with lush world building and well developed characters from start to finish.

I always love Juliette's work, but she really shines in the start to this new series. With elements of fantasy, historical and paranormal, you can not miss out on her fierce heroine Arabelle and her vampire hero Marius.

Add this to your TBR pile immediately!
