The Vampire's Mark 1 Dark Reign [Pdf/E–pub]
Lso carries some huge technological breakthroughs that we hard for me to wrap my head around Our world was built on supernaturals concepts xcept it seems that they were achieved through science Humanity is nslaved by Vampires ven though that is what they are there is a scientific name Ianites What I think is most interesting about this story is that despite humanity being nslaved we get multiple POVs here which doesn t make a bad guy apparent Its confusing the lack of black and white and also getting the perspectives from both our FMC Corina who is human and Julian our leading dude
in this story who is a prince of the Ianites This causes this story who is a prince of the Ianites This causes war within the reader as we don t honestly know who to root for because it doesn "t seem ither side of the war is "seem Guitar Makers: The Endurance of Artisanal Values in North America either side of the war is but something is going on behind the scenes that we just aren t privy too yet andach of our characters are out for what is best for their raceCorina lands herself in a heap of trouble while infiltrating the palace trying to find out about a tainted blood supply Ok have to stop my summary here to just let veryone know I don t understand the heavy science going on here I don t feel like there was a thorough nough Hard Bread (Phoenix Poets (Paper)) explanation about the vaccines About the sickness happening to the vampires nor about the tainted blood supply Though it was mentioned I feel like it was waaaaay to brief and barely noticeable for such a big point of the world build Anyways while trying to find out about the tainted blood supply Corina catches theye of not one but all 4 princes which starts a snowball of vents and secrets as well as lie upon lie to try and dig their way out Now Corina is property of the Prince a doll just where she never wanted to beI feel like we are just barely hearing the rumbles of the avalanche of trouble about to fall on our main characters We have definitely just scratched the surface and I must know what we are getting into Looking forward to continuing this series Instagram Twitter Facebook PinterestI want to kick this book for sucking because it could have been really good A reverse harem vampire romance in a world where humans are subservient to vampires and the heroine is an assassin trying to take down some ultra sexy vampire lords sounded amazing I m a little confused by the world building but vampires appear to be the result of a genetic mutation and have basically taken all the power for themselves using humans for food and calling them sows and calling the pretty ones they keep as their toys Dolls It sounded really dark and I was all here for itI was not a fan of the writing in this book It seemed sloppy and unpolished The world building also wasn t very good I feel like this came off as a vampiric version of THE SELECTION which I hated It was shallow and superficial trying to take on much darker and tougher topics than it was really uipped to handle The result was kind of tone deaf as it became all about insta love and smutting about with the princes ven though there wasn t that much action and all the POVs sounded the sameIf you know me you know I love vampire fiction the darker the better I was really hoping that these vampires would come with bite Sadly their fangs were about as threatening as wax teeth Somebody needs to present me with the vampire romance I deserve because I ve been super unimpressed with verything I ve been reading lately bar my friend s work and VAMPIRE ACADEMY Sigh15 stars First off I m not a huge fan of reverse harem but I love vampires and the stor. Rse thanks to the slip up my fate is suddenly theirs to decide It’s up to them whether I’ll swing from the gallows and I’ve given them very reason to sentence me to such a fate Yet I felt something unexplainable when our paths first crossed Something that gives me hope We should be one another’s worst nightmare Only I’m beginning to wonder if somehow these four princes might be my saving grace This is BOOK ONE in THE VAMPIRE’S MARK series Series order is as follows The Vampire’s Mark 1 Dark Reign The Vampire’s Mark 2 Hell Storm The Vampire’s Mark 3 Cold Heir The Vampire’s Mark 4 Crimson Mist Note This. 159 Jonas Rachel Dark Reign The Vampire s Mark 1 94 4642 Reading Date 28082019 29082019Shelfves rhfPages 294My rating stars 4Read other books from this author in the future yesThe first book I read form this author was Book one of the Lost Royal Saga And The Dark Mark reminds me of it a little in the speed in which Jonas tells the story It begins slow ven if the reader sees where this will lead in the long run before the MC s Fragments even meet But around 40% the speed picks up and suddenly I couldn t put it down and I am looking forward to the next part I can t describe what got me I think it were many thing The girl Corina her cause that she cares so much about her family The awful society which has princes who seem to be human at times I normally don t read vampire books A buddy read on GR made me decide to read this one And I am happy that I read it This book reads like a dystopian novel with paranormal themes This story follows Corina a human rebel living among allied humans in a world run by Ianites Ianites are the author s take on vampires with their ownlaborate political world customs and futuristic inventions But the sucky part see what i did there is that humans are little than cattle sows who are used and killed So Ianites really are the worst BummerThe pacing of the book was the biggest problem for me in part due to the world building that had to take place After an intense page turning first couple of chapters the pace slows immensely for long Foundations of Tropical Forest Biology: Classic Papers with Commentaries explanations about politics and thinly veiled conversations thatxplain things to the reader An xample might be hey such and such xplain to me why humans can t be turned into Ianites How does that process work What could
I EXPECT IF I WAS BITTEN expect if I was bitten pages containing xactly what you need to know before some major plot point takes place
which hinges on the xact knowledge the reader gained in that conversation This made for lots of skimming hinges on the xact knowledge the reader gained in that conversation This made for lots of skimming me The chemistry was pretty low between Julian and Corina Because of the aforementioned long winded xplanations the two actually interacted only a couple of times Much of the page count was dedicated to scenes between the guys Julian and his father or Corina and her people She spent much of the book understandably pissed and resentful of Julian which I get and support it d be weird if she wasn t but then turns confused and simpering with a kiss I wish of the political intrigue was left for later books so we could spend time with Corina and the guys Let them bond a little or fightsomething to shore up and sizzle those relationships before shit hits the fanAnyways the book improved in the last half and I ll probably reach for the second sometime soon Was it unputdownable Nobut honestly one of the better RHs I ve read lately Interesting start to this series Super big fan of Rachel Jonas at this point as her books usually suck me in pretty fast This story though I had a little trouble getting invested I feel like it is because though we have an interesting world the lack of backstory about the world really made it hard for me to fully picture things Though we do get some One Ticket To Texas explanations they sometimes felt a little out of place Like why would someone need toxplain to the FMC certain aspects when she has grown up in this world So like it was obvious the Helpmate explanations weren t for the FMC but for the reader almost taking the reader out of the story for thexplanations I wouldn t go as far to say fact dumps but they were definitely obviousDystopian type feel but it Four blood sucking princes A beautiful anarchist One dangerous mistake To the vampires who dominate Art, Culture, and Cuisine: Ancient and Medieval Gastronomy each uadrant of the Lydian Dynasty I’m only known as “Blackbird” a masked vigilante who at nineteen is already publicnemy number one To what’s left of humanity I’ve been called a superhero a title I neither welcome nor deserve My only objective is to offer the nslaved what was stolen from us Freedom However a failed plan lands me in the last place I imagined at the mercy of all four Dynasty princes Julian Levi Roman and Silas They’re monsters ach with a heart rud to be as cold as his icy skin And what’s wo.
