My rating: 5 of 5 stars
This is the second book in the Order of the Senary series and I gotta say, the series gets better and better! Black Bullet is a standalone but I recommend reading Releasing the Demons first. Not only is it a great book but it gives more background on the Senary and the characters involved. L.D. Rose built an intense, dark and gritty world set in New York but with a twist in history that brought vampires to life. Her words were so imaginative and fantastical that I was easily pulled into Jon and Lawan’s story. Their romance is slow burning, it takes a lot for Lawan to learn to trust in Jon and the Knights because of her horrific past. But when Jon and Law finally come together, the chemistry between them is sultry and passionate! I loved Lawan, she was so tough and strong, a real heroine. Jon was of course a tough guy too but he was also incredibly sweet and tender with Law. The story has so much to offer, it’s full of intriguing twists, some dark turns, exotic characters, a bit of sexiness and even a sprinkle of laughter. I’m adding this series to my READ AGAIN E-SHELF and I can’t wait for the next book! Told from dual POVs with a happy ending for Jon and Law (but hopefully not the end for the Senary yet!)
ABOUT THE BOOK:
Fledgling vampire Jonathan Kerr has just met his match.
Not even his past life as a former marine and FBI agent could prepare him for the battle against the monster inside him, struggling to take hold. After an old nemesis of the Senary surfaces in Brooklyn, unleashing chaos and terror in the battered borough, Jon sets out to take him down. Instead, he ends up with far more than he bargained for when he clashes with the beautiful half-vampire hybrid, Lawan Knight.
After escaping near death and suffering unspeakable horror at the hands of vampires, Lawan trusts no one, regardless of species. In between bouts of drunken stupor, her only goal is to exterminate all those who’ve wronged her, including every member of Jon’s vampire bloodline. But Jon’s soulful eyes and quick smile crawls under her skin, transforming her black and white world into a hazy shade of gray.
As the days rapidly grow darker, Jon and Lawan turn to one another, but their inner demons threaten to tear them apart. The only way either of them will survive is if they overcome their greatest fear—
