Check out my review for: Descended By Blood (Vampire Born, #1)

Synopsis: Two guys who’ve stolen her heart.
Three races and only one of them worthy.
Countless enemies with insatiable bloodlust for power.Will one girl's curse ultimately save her?

Half-vampire Brooke Keller barely survived the slaying of her worst enemy, only to learn that Zladislov—the world's most powerful vampire, leader of the vampire world, and her father—wants her dead. However, this time, she's not only fighting vampires but a raging monster within her that endangers what's left of her humanity. And when a deadly disease threatens to take her best friend's life, Brooke tries to convince Kaitlynn to accept a monster of her own: becoming a Zao Duh.

As a former slave to the Pijawikas, Mirko is driven to protect the innocent at all costs, but he has never faced a foe more formidable than Zladislov. And when the Commission bears down on Brooke, Mirko finds the stream of enemies runs deeper than he ever imagined.

Review: 5 Stars - Enemy Within is the second title in author Angeline Kace’s Vampire Born trilogy. With the events that happened at the end of Descended By Blood, I knew without a doubt that I had to get my hands on this one. As soon as I did I also knew I’d drop everything to find out what was about to happen next to Brooke, Mirko and company!

This book, without a doubt left me stunned. If there’s one thing that Angeline does and does well, it’s the crazy tension that builds over and over again between her characters. And I’m not just talking about the sexual tension between Brooke and our favorite vampire Mirko either. There’s drama at every turn heartbreaking new rules that must be followed, eyes everywhere and new players that are about to change everything!

Once reading it was one heck of a ride that Angeline gave me. I will admit that I was angry a few times over what she makes her characters go through. There were plenty of times I almost put my Kindle down and sent her an email asking WHY?! I knew that’d take too much time… so I kept reading and before I knew it I’d want to fire that email off to her again!

Oh the emotions! Speaking of… while Descended By Blood was emotional, it didn’t hold a candle to what I saw and felt while reading this novel. How she does it, I don’t know but if I have one thing to say, it’s KEEP DOING WHAT YOU’RE DOING ANGELINE!

Relationships face heavy strain, are tested and damaged. I flew through the story and when I hit that last page I about died. I seriously wondered if I had a copy that was missing that last chapter or two. I had to reread the last few pages a few times to come to terms with what exactly I was absorbing. Angeline! Are you serious? How could you DO that to us??

All in all, I loved the first book and knew that we’d be in for a treat with the second, and I am happy to say that I was right. Angeline has an exciting fresh new take and lore to vampires. She writes a fast paced story with characters you won’t be able to forget, a book boyfriend that’ll make you swoon and a tension that’s over the top in more ways than one. I loved it and I know everyone will too! Hurry, go read! No waiting, go, go GO!
