Our thoughts...

I finally got to dive into The Black Lily, and for what it’s worth I’m a big fan of this particular author. The Vessel Trilogy is off the chain, anyway getting back to TBL. It’s about vampires of course, and you know how I love my vamps.

The premise is there is a blood madness going around, and infecting vampires to go on killing sprees with humans. While I appreciate the quick and prompt explanation with the madness, we didn’t get to see much of it happening. One particular scene did hash it out, but that was about it.
As for the “love” trope, we have Marius who is the prince and Arabelle.  I was a little disappointed in the development of the relationship. It’s fast. Like uber fast. One minute she was going to kill him, then the next time they were together, BAM instant attraction. The book could have been a little more than it was, and I feel like I was rushed through the whole thing, and didn’t get to enjoy it. If you like fast paced PNR, you might give this a try. However, it just wasn’t for me.
