I had started this book with high hopes. The premise seemed like a good spin on the vampire mythos. However, the book drags for much of the time, with the action not picking up until about 3/4th of the way through. The plot seemed barely existant for much of the book, and the charaters' interactions and motivations were mostly incomprehensible. Given that this is the first book in a series, one would normally expect a more thorough introduction to the shared world of these books. All in all, a book I finished only out of an obligation to learning the resolution, such as it was.
Great book. Now to look for the rest. I didn't want it to end. My kind of vampire story.
interesting take on vampires with likable characters. However, I had a little trouble following the storyline.
The first book in the Laws of the Blood series.
From the back of the book:
They are the Enforcers. An elite group of vampires who must serve and protect their secret community-and uphold the...Laws of the Blood.
In LA, the Enforcer Selim has been called upon to approve a hunt. Much time has passed since the vampires of the city have last tasted fresh blood, and they are clamoring for the kill. It's Selim's job to keep them under control--and there are those who resent his authority.
He must not waver or show weakness when he gives the Law--his life and the life of his mortal love Siri depend on his strength. But a whispered rumor is distracting him, a rumor of betrayal, of a violation of the most sacred of the Laws: Never reveal the truth about your own kind...
1st in the series. They are the Enforcers. An elite group of vampires who must serve and protect their secret community and uphold the Laws of the Blood.
