Ellie Smith, an emotionally stunted dancer, finds more than she bargains for after her human life is taken by the vampire, Master Liam. Once inside the Vampire’s underground lair, the Keres Den, she meets Ian, an immortal Viking warrior, who is infiltrating the soulless prison.
As Ellie begins her training, she learns that the dark tunnels around her are filled with even darker secrets. As the truth of her existence come to light, she is faced with a choice—does she let her past dictate her future, or can she begins to feel again?
A short, very quick and different vampire read. It was very vivid, creative and for a short it was written very complete. There are no questions as to the why or how. It’s all in there within the 40 pages that are written. That takes a great amount of skill in my eyes.
Ellie is taken by complete surprise when trying for a job as a dancer. Thinking she just has to show what she’s made of then BAM! Her life is changed completely and forever. She’s strong, alone and does not feel emotions, but ends up finding out how and why in the long run. Basically being held captive to the master vampire that has turned her, she finds a friend of sorts. Someone she feels she can trust and trust is not something Ellie does.
Ian is doing his part as the master vampire’s servant. Little does anyone know that he’s really there to get information on the horde of vampires that live there so that they can be stopped from destroying human lives any longer. He meets Ellie the night she’s trying for a job and witnesses her attack by the master vampire Liam and is unable to do anything because of the importance of his position. He’s determined to keep Ellie on the side of good and have her as his, forever.
Ellie and Ian are an extremely sweet couple that I was glad to see matched. They each have a spark of hope due to the others presence and they go through a couple of very scary situations but always have one another’s back.
