Release Date: February 22, 2013
I received this book from the author, in exchange for an honest review.
Summary: Half-vampire Abby Tate is determined to learn more about the sorceress powers that were awakened inside her when she was turned into a vampire—making her a whole new hybrid species. There’s a group of rogue vamps banding together and forming a Resistance against the vampire governing body, The Head Council, and Abby’s newly discovered powers are the key to the Council’s victory.
Now the Resistance will do anything possible to remove the hybrid threat, and with no other options, Abby is forced to rely on the aid of the Council, yet can she trust the very vampires that hunt for her human lover? And even worse, can she fight the unwelcome attraction that’s growing between her and one of those ancient vampire rulers?
Thoughts: It's been two months since the vampire, Bronx kidnapped and turned Abby Tate. She is now an hybrid vampire and eager to learn about her sorceress bloodline. But she encounters complications, like the head council and the resistance who would love nothing more than to destroy her. She loathes putting trust in the council, but it's her only option. Plus, if they can really reunite her with her real mother she believes the risk will be worth it.
Excellent read! Robertson has written a stellar follow up to book one, Crimson Groves. The story had a darkness to it that makes for an exciting change of pace. Crimson Flames has a great energy to it and it's wonderfully paced. With intense, sensual scenes. I loved both Tristan and Stone, Trace as well. The sexiness just rolls off of them. It's a miracle that Abby even remembers her human lover with them around. If you're looking for a bloody good vampire story, then you should check this one out.
Score: 4 Stars
