Allegiance (The Vampire Alliance, #2)Allegiance by Angela Louise McGurk
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

In The Vampire Alliance #2 I found the introduction more interesting than the conclusion as the latter was too abrupt for my liking and it was neither here nor there just as the reader is starting to see another side of Eve and Tul.

The relationship of Eve and Tul is explored in detail and I liked that their love was able to draw the reader in. My favourite scene is when they get married. It was sad yet so touching to see Eve move on. The vampire elements in the story were realistic and not overly dramatic or gory.

My only criticism is that I wasn't able to connect with Eve as much as I would have liked too. This is not a negative review on the book or the writer but might simply stem from the fact that I have not read the first book and am picking up from a story that has already started.

Overall, I recommend this book to anyone who is looking for a vampire read that has been well-written, flows well and provides strong imagery without too much violence. I would also recommend that you start from the first book.

Disclosure - As a Quality Reads Book Club member, I received a free copy of this book in exchange for my honest review.
