I was just a reporter, trying to stay ahead of my student loans. I knew the rules, and I followed them.

I thought I knew how the world worked—humans lived their petty little lives in the safety of the sun. We loved and fought and—when the sun sank—we scurried behind our walls and lived in fear. That is when the monsters came out to play.
And even in the safety of the sun, we knew who ruled us.

The Houses. And their Scions.

Everyone knows the great Houses and their Scions—they are feared and loved and hated and envied. They are the gods who walk the shadows and rule all of our lives. They are salvation and death.

And somehow, I am one of them.

When I read The Scionless House I knew I was going to love this new series. It was a unique take on the vampire world but also had an Underworld tone that got me so excited.

The Blood Scion starts off where the FREE (Yes, free!) novella ended, with Tavian and Sulla tasked with retrieving Farley, and it was obvious from the get go that this would not be any easy one as she seemed so dead against the vampires who'd save her world only to turn around with some hefty demands.

I liked that Farley didn't cower at the sight of them, even though she clearly wanted to. She stood up for herself and even though it got her into trouble at times, it spoke volumes about her character. Also, the fact that she stepped into the role of Scion, putting aside her feelings in the face of adversity only made me like her more. She had a tough decision to make toward the end of this book and I have to say that I was pleasantly surprised by the way things turned out. It showed that her new "family" were willing to go the extra mile for her, just as she was willing to for them.

I really enjoyed getting to know the characters more and I cannot wait for the rest of this series. I must add, however, that at one point I felt that there was something missing from this book. It seemed that an entire part of this story was missing between Part 3 & 4, and I would have loved to have seen the desire and chemistry develop between Fars and Tavian a little more. It was there for most of the book, but it felt lukewarm, and then suddenly ignited in one amazing scene. Other than that, this book was Fantastic.

Twelve Houses. Twelve vampire lines. We ruled from the shadows, and manipulated the world, and when humans came too close to destruction, we intervened.

Every House has a Scion. A fragile, easily broken human that stood shoulder to shoulder with the house Princes and Princesses.

Except for ours. The Ravens, House Cantelie.

We've been without a Scion for almost fifteen years.

But that will change...and her life will be mine to protect.
