3.5 StarsVampires exist among us. They can be our neighbor, best friend, our child's teacher ...
They alter their aged appearance based upon the amount of blood they consume. They move to a new area, drink a lot of blood, and appear young. Slowly they limit their intake of blood and age, right in front of our unsuspecting eyes. After decades, they fake their death, move, and do it over and over again.
Most live quiet lives in an effort to blend in.
Some however want power and control.
The Colony is an elite group of vampires sworn to protect the President of the United States from these rogue vampires.
When Raymond Metcalf, vampire coven master of the Colony, teams up with a federal operative of the human female persuasion–who has no idea that vampires even exist–will his mission or his heart be compromised first?
Career military woman, Alex Brennan, is being offered the promotion of a lifetime and with it a romance that she has desperately been seeking. Does she dare accept the position as Director of the Colony, an elite group of deadly creatures of the night and risk a dangerous romance with a man who isn't even human?
Together, can they save the President?
My Thoughts; I received this book as an ARC from the author for purpose of review. I was rather excited after reading the synopsis and I began reading as soon as possible.
I really enjoyed this book. The author had a great concept and I feel she was able to tell the story in a way that kept me entertained. I only gave this book a 3.5 Star rating because there were a few points in the book that felt a little drawn out. Also, because it is was an ARC there were some editing issues that made it kinda difficult at times. I had a few emails back and forth with the author about it and she was already tackling them.
Overall this was a great read. I do see room for growth for this author but I do feel she could take this series to a really great place. I wish her lots of luck with her career and I hope to see lots more from her in the future.
