***I received a free copy in exchange for a book review***
Brie and Samuel travel to the human town of Freemont and learn that Brie is being hunted. Brie is more than a domina. But what is she? And why is she being hunted as if she is the solution to a puzzle that the Quiet King has never been able to solve?
Samuel and Brie are forced to align with another, one that holds many answers and incites even more questions. Their journey drags them back to Capitol City and among the night life where sex and secrets mingle together within the light of the two moons. All this time Brie thought she’d escaped and gotten away free from vampires. But can she run away anymore or was she captured the whole time?
I loved this 15 chapter book. It was told through Brie’s first person point-of-view. I liked how it started where it left off in the first book of the series. The same characters were introduced, some even had larger roles. Octavia and her mom had a lot to do with the ending (in the first book, their motives were told but only glossed over. With Captured, readers see how desperate they truly are to make Samuel the Vampire King).
- I loved the twists and turns. Samuel thought of Ty, Ty’s wife, and Leeta as people who truly cared for him. In this book, we found out the truth. According to legends, humans can’t turn into vampires. Vampires have to be birthed by at least one vampire parent. Well, Brie was way more powerful than a regular domina. No wonder she was held as a special captive. I even liked learning the scheme of her husband. The characters were definitely sneaky and three-dimensional.
My favorite line: “You said you understood my need to start a new life.” The words came out a little shaky as I took Samuel’s huge form. “I won’t be your prisoner.” Brie wanted to travel to Mage Territory where vampires are forbidden to walk on the land. Samuel wants to protect her and believes they can make a relationship work, so he doesn’t want to let her go. Their confrontational scenes were hot and steamy! It definitely seemed like, in this book, they didn’t care if other people watched them get intimate.
The ending was stellar, leaving things as a cliffhanger. I’m excited to see what the next book in the series brings.
I RECOMMEND this book to read.
