Snow the Vampire Slayer( Farielle #2)
Publication Date: September 22, 2014
Lady Snow Gwyn is tired of playing "mother" to her seven Vampire Slaying brothers. For the past two years, she's yearned to be out there fighting at their side as they hunt for bloodsuckers in the black of night. Snow is as good a fighter as any man, but she wasn't called to be a Slayer. A mere formality in her book. Prince Sageren, Son of Lothar has spent the last fifty years in exile, awaiting the day when he can finally avenge his family and take back his throne. Barely existing, he's forced to face his inner demons and the monster he once was, compelling him to vow to never drink from humans again. A simple enough task--until he crosses paths with a human who makes his fangs ache to drain her. That's why when Snow runs into Prince Sage on a late night trip to the woods, she's torn between the urge to kill him and the desire to succumb to the feeling he stirs within her. And when Snow's life is threatened by the same evil that murdered his family, Prince Sage must enlist the aid of Snow's brothers to not only help him save her life, but to also regain his rightful place as King of the Vampires. If Sage can keep the Slayers from killing him first.
Snow's anger flared and she was nose-to-nose with him in a step. "You left," she said. "I was trying to protect you from my brothers."
"I told you I wouldn't be there. It's best for you if you aren’t with me," he said. “It’s safer.”
"Fine. Then I'll go." Snow unlocked the door and stepped into the hall. Sage grabbed her by the
waist and pulled her back to his room, slamming the door and pressing her against it.
He stared at her hard and leaned in closer, setting the palms of his hands onto the wood on either
side of her head. His eyes glowed with a beautiful light from somewhere deep within, but they
were full of sadness. His arousal pressed into her.
"Don't go," he whispered.
Warmth rushed through her body, flushing her cheeks and pooling in her belly. The sensation tingled and excited her. His fingers skimmed along her collarbone. He drew her face close and pressed his lips lightly to hers. Fire bloomed inside. Her body betraying what her mind told her not to want.
Snow's lips parted and she lapped at his mouth with her tongue. He moaned low in his chest making her shiver. Sage wrapped his hands in her hair and crushed her into him.
Breaking his mouth away from hers, he kissed down her neck. She tensed as he reached her torn, but healing throat. His tongue slid tenderly over the still sensitive area. Her breathing hitched. The mixture of pain and pleasure blurred her senses. Her legs trembled and she pressed against the wood for support.
She wanted this. Even after what Sonya had done, somehow she still wanted this. Snow grabbed at his chest and he winced.
"What is it?"
"Nothing." He averted his gaze.
She studied his face. "You're lying." A spot of blood blossomed on his shirt where she had touched him. "Sage, you're bleeding," she said.
"It's nothing." He plucked the tunic from his chest and his face twisted into a brief grimace.
Something pricked in her mind and she ran her fingers under the edge of his tunic, trying to lift it. He planted his hands firmly on her wrists, pulling her fingers free.
"Don't," he said through gritted teeth.
Snow's expression hardened. "Take off your tunic."
"No," he said.
“Let me see.” When he didn’t move, Snow shook her hands free of his grasp, grabbed the V of his tunic, and ripped it down the middle.
"Snow," he said with an exasperated sigh. "That was a good tunic."
She stared in disbelief. "Those scratches, those are…" She met his eye. "You should be healed. Vampires heal quicker than normal."
He stared at her.
"What's going on? Why aren’t you healing?" she asked. "You've fed, haven’t you?"Sage pressed his lips together forcefully and crossed his arms over his chest
This book rocked!! There was so much going on in this book
and it just blew my mind, I loved the storyline, the characters and how
imaginative and creative the whole concept was in this book.
So this book takes place in Fairelle a land divided into subsets ruled by magical creatures to include Vampires, Werewolves, Fae, and Nerieds who have spent centuries warring with each other. The focus of this book is on the Vampire Kingdom Tanah Darah and its rightful heir the, oh so delicious and intense, Sage. Sage after forming an alliance with the Werewolves of Wolvenglen has enlisted their help to overthrow his conniving Uncle Philos and his deceitful Queen Terona who currently occupy the throne. Both have destroyed what was once a mighty kingdom slowly bringing it to ruin, this in turn causes a long forgotten magic to kick into high gear. That magic being the calling of the Slayers.
This is where we meet Snow, a feisty cunning and brave girl from the family Gywn. Her brothers have been given the mantle of the Slayers. Her brothers though overbearing are dedicated in their calling as well as their duty to protect Snow from harm; however Snow is more capable then any of her brothers could ever imagine which leads her into the arms of Sage and on a path that could very well kill her.
The passion and attraction between Sage and Snow is off the charts intense. It will literally make your toes curl and you may have to douse yourself with ice water. Not only is their physical chemistry explosive but they share a very powerful emotional connection as well. Sage loves Snow’s spirit and her independence, her strength and her determination make her irresistible to him. Snow on the other end loves the challenge that Sage gives her both mentally and physically, he allows her to be herself. He does not admonish her for her bravery or desire to explore the world. The two of them make quite a remarkable pair and together they can overcome just about anything.
The supporting cast of characters are equally engaging and likable. All of Snow’s brothers have their unique personality and strengths, they are an unstoppable unit and the love they have for their family shines throughout the story. Dax, oh dax, how I love thee. Dax is nothing but loyal. He does everything in his power to help Sage and is the most utterly devoted friend. I can’t wait to see more of his character and his backstory.
This book had it all, I mean really had it all. There were thrills, drama, a little infused comedy in some of the banter, totally hot romance, action, mystical paranormal legends and prophecies and some very lovable characters. Ganiere did a fantastic job of keeping me thoroughly immersed and invested in this story. Absolutely loved it!!
