WOW!!! This book was absolutely brilliant in the style and variety of the world these characters are a part of. We are introduced to a world where humans have become little more than a way to provide entertainment, food, sexual play things, and generally looked upon as nothing more than a necessity needed within the system developed by the Paranormal world of the Vampires and Lycan’s of the time. I was absolutely blown away by the amazing Author’s take on this superb storyline and creative world she has developed for us to delve into. Totally Outside anything similar in the lives of Lycans or Vampires, that is being written at the moment, but definitely far out weighs anything similar. Her captivating characters, mystery, and tragedy including tenacious and intriguing events that have you continually sitting on the edge of your seat not quite sure where the next twist is coming, find you wanting to know what is about to happen next as you become invested in how these characters survive and get through the events they are dealing with in their life and death situation. Our two central characters Raelyn and Kylan find themselves in an ongoing battle of wits. Raelyn is the human consort that Kylan chose at the Blood Ceremony, only he finds himself totally intrigued by this strong determined and spirited women who appears to have little to no fear of him, even though he’s the most feared Royal within the hierarchy of vampires, and is believed to have no feeling or respect for anyone especially humans. Immortality is what Raelyn believes she was being given the chance to achieve, but like most things presented within this system nothing is as it seems, so she finds herself continually battling against the pulling desires Kylan seems to be able to create in her, not realizing she’s having the same effect upon him. Lexi Foss has a natural talent of getting her reader’s inside the pages of her book’s ,so we are personally involved in and with the characters as they deal with the emotions, pain and survival of this outstanding world she has masterfully developed. Being part of the Post Apolyptic era with political and legal ramifications preventing any superior being from doing whatever they wanted was how this system is controlled by a select few, but like most systems with a little creativity and determination, Royalty can be challenged and this is where Kylan and Raelyn find themselves while slowly understanding the powers they have over each other could actually give the enemies a perfect way to achieve their desires. This storyline has so much suspense, drama, never ending twists with highly intelligent and well thought out events with situation’s one would never expect, that I can only say to anyone who loves a book that has something to please everyone, they should definitely grab this book and be prepared to want to grab another Lexi Foss book straight after, because I know I am. She now has an avid follower of her work from here on out.
Royally bitten is the next book in the Blood Alliance series and yes, we meet up with Darius and Juliet again in this one! But we meet Kylan, the Royal vampire best known for killing his entire harem and we meet his newest addition Rae, or as he likes to call her Raelyn!
Soooooo many surprise twists in this one, that I did not see coming but I absolutely adored the characters and the storyline and definitely plan to read more in this series when it becomes available 😍 As I got to the end I thought to myself I’d like to learn more about the Lycans and Rae’s friends from her past, Silas and Willow....and low and behold I believe the next story is called Regally Bitten and I’m getting some of my wishes come true.
A big thank you to Lexi for my advanced copy for which I leave my honest review and thank for allowing me into her wonderful paranormal world❣️
This series just gets hotter and darker. Royally Bitten dives deeper into the workings of the world Lexi has created; with blood farms, harems and the "university" lessons that are drilled into a humans soul. Rae knows what to expect and what her future will be and she's resigned to it; however with Kylan living life his own way and not how Rae's been taught her world is turned upside down. How will she survive when she doesn't know the rules; nothing is how it should be and Kylan just may destroy her in everyway except how she has expected.
I admit when I wasn't sure about this series when I first started but the second was a significant improvement on the first (not that the first one was bad). I really liked Kylan and Rae better than Darius and Juliet and the story was much more involved. Heartbreaking at the end but overall a terrific story. Greatly looking forward to seeing things on the Lycan side of the camp for book three.
