Goodreads Synopsis:

Tired of written dreck and sparkly vampires? Sink your teeth into the Nefarious series and get a bigger bite out of fiction.

Described as “captivating,” and “hauntingly beautiful,” the Nefarious series is a sophisticated, enthralling, and well-written tale of intrigue and devious desires. Set in a lurid, southern gothic world, follow the undead Talcott Henderson as he engages in a battle of wits with his intended, Elyse Delafayette. 

But wait, what’s this? Half-ling dhamphyrs armed with hawthorn stakes, a blood-witch coven torn apart by infighting, and a corpse-like, ancient vampire king with an agenda of his own? 

Enhanced with custom illustrations, this fast-paced steampunk series will leave you on the edge of your seat and hungry for more. If you are sick and tired of wimpy vampires and the flood of terrible books on the romance market, grab your copy today of the Nefarious series and relearn what a true escape into fiction is all about.

Book Review:
Pre-reading Thoughts:

I really don't have much to say about this book. A fellow book blogger and PA contacted me to see if I wanted to review the book. I decided to hop on in and see what this book was all about.

Thank you so much to Victoria for sending me a copy of this book. Just a small disclaimer for those who are reading this review. I have received this book for free in exchange for an honest review. Please note that this does not affect my opinion in any way. All thoughts are my own.

Writing Thoughts:

The writing definitely carried the essence of the time that it was set in. It almost always had this proper and posh tone to it. I also really enjoyed that there was a lot of detail that helped to create the landscapes and the monsters that are thought up by the author.

Plot Thoughts:

As a disclaimer, I think that you should know that I did not read the other books in the series because I was told that I didn't have to. However I definitely believe that in order to create the sense of consistency and continuity, you should read the books in order. I sat for the majority of the beginning of the book just wondering what exactly was going on and what had happened. The book in itself wasn't too bad. I enjoyed the world created by the author but felt that it lacked something.

Character Thoughts:

This book is very short and because I did not read the other books in the series, I felt as though the characters where underdeveloped or rather that they just fell flat. I didn't get to see what they were like in the beginning of the series and therefore I was not able to see if the characters grew over time.

Final Thoughts:

Overall, I found this book to be okay. The only thing that really stood out for me was what some of the characters turned into. They were all unique. However, I definitely felt like I was out of the loop with this book. The writing was quite good but because I didn't have the background of the previous books, I felt very confused and I was not entirely sure how things have progressed. This book does contain mature content and therefore I do not recommend this for younger readers. Thank you so much to Victoria for sending me a copy of this book to review.

Yours in Reading,
