Antanasia knows better than anyone that being royal comes with lots of expectations. Born into war as a Vampyre Witch, she has to battle the ultimate enemy: her own blood. When she has a terrifying Vision, Antanasia fights harder than ever to prevent it from coming to pass. Will she succeed? Or does she die trying? Nadia is an average teenager celebrating her nineteenth birthday. But her day turns upside down when she starts developing unusual abilities that make her question everything she knew. Searching for answers to her predicament, she finds herself trusting Nicolae, a stranger with a familiar presence. Why does she feel so drawn to him? Will Nadia find answers to the questions about her past and take on her new role willingly? Or will she choose to remain in the dark and deny her destiny?
This book alternates between Wallachia 1480 and New York 2015 and between Antanasia and Nadia. The world building and the vampire folklore really appealed t me and I loved reading about these two women. As the book unfolds the connections between these two women become evident and the story picks up. The pace is consistent through the book and had me hooked. Both women were intriguing to read about and I need to know what happens in future books.
