Vampires & werewolves shouldn't fall in love.

Lysandra was born for one reason; to kill shifters. Princess of vampires, the heir to Vlad Dracula’s throne and the last descendant of Princess Anastasia, Lysandra lives in a castle of witches and human slaves, prophesied as the one to end the war between vampires and werewolves forever. Yet everything changes when Lysandra finds a dying wolf, and quickly falls in love. If she’s discovered, she will be put to death. But how can she stop the war when her worst enemy is her true love?


I received a Court of Vampires from Kindle Scout. 

Lysandra has just spent the last four years in Russian training to be a werewolf slayer. A prophecy has predicted that she would bring the end to the werewolves but she's not sure if that's what she really wants anymore. She dreams of ruling the castle in Russian that is rightfully hers even though they can't return. 

When the werewolves attack the castle the fighting breaks out between the two powerful races. While headed to her room as she's been ordered she finds an injured wolf but instead of killing as she's expected she brings him back to her room to nurse him back to health. When the witch of the castle and her best friend find out what she's hiding in her room she strikes a deal but it could change everything. With her growing connection to the wolf will she be able to let him go? 

I like Lysandra she may have been raised to be a killer but she doesn't want to do it. I really wanted to dislike Tomlien but he proves that he isn't a bad guy just in a bad situation. I didn't like Lisar at first but the more we got to know him the more he grew on me. I like that he saw Lysandra as more than just a killer. These two remind me a little of Romeo and Juliette as both families are at war. 

I've had this one on my kindle for a few month but haven't had a chance to read it just yet. I love the cover it what captured my attention first a girl in a dress and a wolf which fits the story perfectly. I liked the concept unique twist of the vampires giving us basically two different kinds of vampires. I wasn't sure about the wolves as they are also a little different than I am used to but it works well. The concept is interesting it's a forbidden romance which reminds me a little of Romeo & Juliet but with vampires and werewolves. This is my first book by the author but I enjoyed her writing style it flows along smoothly. I can't wait for the next one to be released I have to know how it's going to play out.
