After reading the free prequel, I was looking forward to this one and it was good!
I’ve mentioned before how picky I am when it comes to Paranormal, Historical and Fantasy which is why those genres are featured the least on my blog apart from my top favorites, I can’t seem to find stories that captivate me.
The Blood Scion certainly had a lot of good qualities. The story describes a world where vampires and humans try to co-exist peacefully, the details are a little blurry because the history is told so many times and from so many people that it seemed like the story itself was trying to put everything in order so we could get on with the romance or whatever was happening at the moment.
There are twelve houses and vampire lines that saved the human race. Our heroine, Farley is a journalist and she doesn’t know much about the houses that are ruling and their scions. Tavian is the mysterious lead and the romance between the two is kind of forbidden and intriguing since he is supposed to be like a guardian to her.
Tavian is a Blood Prince fiercely loyal even when he clearly would rather be anything but. The story follows Tavian and his estranged brother as they travel to meet Farley and bring her home to their father – the reason is unknown at first. The two of them – and the feel of the story is almost like mafia but in a vampire world, really intriguing. House Cantelie, Tavian’s House has been without a scion for fifteen years and when the reason behind it is revealed, Farley and Tavia’s stories come together so beautifully, I’m really looking forward to that.
I won’t say anything to spoil the world building and how she becomes a main character, it’s really interesting seeing this version and it’s certainly entertaining but it has a few plot holes. I loved the world setting and the Houses, but it needed more time to show character development as well as story development, it felt like things happened too fast and the same details would be repeated again and again. Looking forward to the next one!
