You think it’s safe to walk alone at night. It’s not. 
You think the only threat is other humans. It’s not. 
Monsters are real. Demons are real. Vampires are real. 
And I’m about to become one of them. 

My name is Arianna Spero. I was an ordinary girl, living an ordinary life, until my mother lapsed into a coma. Now, I am her only hope. She made a deal with the devil, and on my 18th birthday he came to collect. But there’s a way to save her. There’s something the princes of hell want more than my mother. 
Me. 
So I signed my soul away and promised to pick a prince to marry. I would take the blood oath, become one of them, and give them an heir. I would become a princess of hell, and my mother would live. 

I expected fire and brimstone. I expected pain and misery. I didn’t expect beauty. I didn’t expect magic. 

I didn’t expect love. 
But the princes are keeping secrets from me. 

Secrets that could shatter everything.

Character inspiration of Arianna Spero

Holy Cow, I couldn’t put this book down. It was addicting. It is a mix of Shades of Vampire + Goddess Test + Outlander/Stardust. Crazy! It was so good. I mean there was some stuff I was unsure about, but the overall concept what interesting and sucks you in. You will be up all night reading this book.  This book has everything you could ask for in a YA/NA paranormal.On Arianna’s 18th birthday, everything changes. The life she built with her mom – living pay-check-to-pay-check – is hanging by a thin thread. The only way to save her mom from eternal turmoil is to sign over her own soul to the Princes of Hell. Seven brothers all vampires, all living in a constant curse of medieval times.  They are trapped and Arianna is the one to choose the next King. The deal, stay with each of the seven princes for one month then choose who she will marry. From that point she will then become queen of hell and her mother will be set free.

There were so many different books that this story reminded me of. So here are the comparisons.

A Shade of Vampire by Bella Forest – Vampire Prince, living in a trap dimension) Isolated and captured from her normal life.

Goddess Test by Aimee Carter – Must spend a specific amount of time in Hell. Does all this to save her mother. Must deal with the seven deadly sins. Lust, Gluttony, Greed, Laziness, Wrath, Envy & Pride.

Throw in some Outlander and Stardust movies and you got your self this book.

No joke, if you have read/watched any of the above books/shows and enjoyed it, then you will LOVE this book.

Each Princes fall into one of these categories: Pride, Wrath/War, Laziness, Envy, Greed, Gluttony, & Lost.

There were times I wanted to beat one of the seven brothers over the head. There were moments I didn’t understand Arianna’s motivation behind a choice she made, but those few things total can be over seen.

I think this book is totally up the paranormal alley. Note: It leaves you on a Cliff Hanger! I am so pissed. I wish I knew. This is the first book and it just came out. Don’t fret hope is not lost. The authors have announced that book 2 will be out at the end of this month. Let us keep our fingers crossed!!!!!! 

  Some of my favorite things about this book that makes it different than others.

  1. The best friend is a transgender girl, and her boyfriend/life partner is this sweet guy who totally understands the weird super natural stuff. I think that is no common enough in books. I believe that books that are extremely versatile are amazing. They allow the readers to see into our real world from another person’s eyes.
  2. Our lead guy isn’t good but isn’t bad. He is your bad boy, but compared to his brothers he honestly doesn’t have negative motives.
  3. Ari, is Kick-Ass! I mean totally love that she didn’t allow the guys to push her around. She made all her own choices, but that didn’t mean they were always wise. I love the choice of outfit she choose to wear. It a corset, black cape, and tight leather pants. BAM!
  4. The writing is really good. I never got bored. There were some parts that I did think carried on a little, but it didn’t ruin the overall story.

It is mature, because they talk about sex, and drinking. Our protagonist gets sexually assault. Our male protagonist has secrets that we are not sure about. This book keeps you on your toes.

So the question you are all asking.
SHOULD YOU READ THIS BOOK!?
HECK YA!
Please do, and come back and tell me what you think.
I mean we are going to have to start speculating on the second book and what may or may not happen! I can’t wait.
