After Showalter’s recent Lord of the Underworld books, Lord of the Vampires was a reminder of how much better LOTU used to be. Not that their not any good any more, but they used to be better. Lord of the Vampires was a fun little read, only 280 pages so it was quick.

If you like realistic type relationship, that move at a relatable speed, then you might not enjoy this book. Nicolas and Jane fall in love very quick, in a span of…a few days. But let’s be honest, if your coming for the romance, and supernatural element, you’re not too concerned about appropriate romance building.

Nicolai a prince was thought dead is back from the grave, and recruits the help of Jane who has suffered tremendous loss. Until one day she ends up in a realm of creatures she has been hired to study and falls (hard) for the prince. The kicker? The duo have met before, and yet have no recollection of their previous meetings. Together the escape their captures, and begin to make their way back to the lost kingdom of Elden to reclaim the throne. Along the way, both experience passion, and undyin love for one another (yup, that quickly).

One can hope that LOTU can find it’s way back to where it started, just like Lord of the Vampires reminded me.

My overall rating: 5/5 stars

Would I recommend: Yes, if you love Lords of the Underworld from it’s eariler days, then you’ll love Lord of the Vampires.
