Help me is Killian Drake the most feared vampire in the region and a far deadly villain than the jerk threatening my familyIs Killian sexy and charismatic Heck yeahHe's also so powerful that my flight or fight instincts kick in every time our eyes meet And he's definitely using me as his personal magic detector in his feud against the local faeBut Killian is also the first person to believe I might have than just a scrap of magic And if I can convince him. WooooooooooGuys this is a great vampire romance Gave me 'Vampire Towers by Kelly St Clare' vibesPlot Hazel is a wizard but a very weak one Due to some family misunderstandings she was basically cast out She seeks refuge to become one of the servants of the vampire family the Drakes with its leader Killian Drake However the Drake family's servants have started to be killed and murdered by unknown creatures and Killian and the family is desperate to find out who is killing the servants why and how to stop themI loved the slow burn romance the mysteries Hazel herself is a great heroine and really funny brave and witty The vampires here are deadly lethal but very funny particularly Josh You obviously get some bad apples like Rupert but that's to be expectedAll I'm saying is if you enjoy vampire romances with a really good plot and lots of mystery I think you'll enjoy this→4 stars

Magic Forged Hall of Blood and Mercy #1I'm one scrappy wizard As someone with barely a flicker of magic I've spent my life being mocked and surviving fights with bullies But when my parents die in an accident and I find myself responsible for our whole wizard house and family I know my usual tactics aren't going to cut itThe situation veers from bad to catastrophic when my backstabbing cousin stages a coup and takes my family hostage I barely manage to flee but the only supernatural willing to. I was drawn into this from the start and that's all down to Hazel She's resilient and tough as a response to having so much less magic than others of her kind and being bullied all her life as a result It's an interesting response choice because she runs first and is always on the lookout for alternatives to confrontation and Shea made that a strength of the character even if it is out of necessity So being tough didn't make her hard or bitter; it made her flexible and that plays as a subtle backdrop in her character I enjoyed seeing manifest in so many different ways—not least in taking to the training of House DrakeAnd I really enjoyed seeing her play off of Killian as a foilbanter buddyprotector I liked that she could reason him out of some of his harsher decisions and that you could see him come to care for her over time even if neither can uite admit that he might actually do so And some of the secondary characters are outstanding though I'm sad there wasn't variation in their response to her invading their House I mean I liked the Rupert storyline and his intense and open dislike of her and how that played out was well thought I think But it could have done with variation in those Hazel had steady contact with because pretty much everybody else likes herThe rest of the elements were what they needed to be and I mean that in a good way The plot held together the worldbuilding was creative enough to be interesting though there isn't a ton of deviation from the standard supernatural fare and the pace held my attention raptAnyway I was so engaged that it was an easy 4½ stars with only minor detractions a captured foe disappeared somehow some minor copy edit issues some timing didn't work daynight wise and a thing I'll mention below because it was weird But what is going to tip it firmly into rounding up is Hazel's moral journey that stands at the explicit heart of her character arc And yes some of that is because the end point matches my own moral code very closely But even is that we still have Killian at the end with the concern that however noble a place she ends up at her certainty is a concern to watch out for And I agree with that even A note about Craft Shea does that thing you get in multi PoV books where each chapter starts with the name of the PoV character for that chapter Only every chapter except the last is Hazel So I spent the entire book going please don't do Killian's PoV This is so much better leaving him a mystery ala The Hating Game so please just let it lie And she did until the very end so that was good But I wish she hadn't felt like she needed to include that last chapter It makes explicit what is hinted at in the penultimate chapter and Shea did a beautiful job relaying the key point in a way that readers can pick up on and I really wish she had let that go without the confirmationA note about Chaste While I think this is a slow burn romance and it fits all those tropes there are no sexy times not even a kiss in this story So it is very chaste indeed And that fit the story very well by the way so kudos
