This book would have been better if the story concentrated only on the story of the Vampire King. There were 4 or more chapters from unrelated character's POV which distracted from the main story. I understand it was the author's way of paving the way for the series and future stories, but I bought the book for the story in the synopsis not the side stories. There wasn't anything phenomenal about this story that I haven't read in other paranormal stories so nothing really stands out for me. Maybe after the series picks up it will get better.
