My Thoughts...
I've been on a paranormal romance kick lately. The whole genre in itself is magical and exciting. There's the whole sense of what if and not wanting to stop reading, and I love that feeling. Court of Vampires lived up to all of my expectations and more! 

I have so many passages highlighted on my Kindle, too many to share here. Pretty much after highlighting practically every other page, I came to the conclusion that THE WHOLE BOOK IS GREAT! It was fun, magical, enlightening & filled to the brim with romance!

Of course, it isn't filled with your typical romance. No, the romance in this book is sweet, endearing and searing and swoon-worthy! The best thing about it is it wasn't forced! In fact, it's the kind that just sneaks up on you, you know the real-life kind! Yes, Court of Vampires is filled with believable romance! Of course, I can't really elaborate further or I'd risk spoiling it for you.

Another thing I loved was the sense to do what's right, not what's expected. Lysandra isn't afraid to stand up for what she believes is the right thing. She's brave, intelligent and wise beyond her years.

That being said she's still a teenager. She gets scared, second guesses herself at times...like we all do at some point and of course rebels from time to time. I really related to Lysandra. The author, Megan did a great job writing her!

A really interesting thing I found while traversing through this book was the original way in which vampires came to be. I liked the fact that they were almost human, well besides their need to drink blood every so often and their aversion to sunlight. They still eat food and no, they aren't immortal. Lysandra's family lineage also was quite different than your typical vampire book. She's descended from Dracula & the Grand Duchess Anastasia of Russia!

All in all:
Court of Vampires is fast-paced & an exciting read! If you're looking for a book to get you hooked, look no further!

If you like these elements you'll love Court of Vampires:
Royalty
Forbidden love
Prophecies
Great Character Development
 A fast, fun read!
And of course...Vampires, Werewolves & Witches!
