My rating: ❤❤❤❤❤ of 5!
I was lucky enough to BETA and ARC read this book and voluntarily decided to leave my honest review.
Back in February I was having a hard time finding my next awesome read, so I asked for recommendations in one of my reading groups on Facebook. That’s when the very talented Erin Butler, who writes under the pen name E.M. Moore, recommended that I checked out her “Ravana Clan Vampires” books. And I was hooked! Since then I’ve read other books by her, like “the Order of Akasha”. However, no matter how much I love her coven o’ hot witches, I’ve been waiting (not so) patiently to find out what comes next for the Ravana vampires.
The wait is now over!
In this first instalment in the new series “The Ravana Clan Legacy” we meet Izzy Ravana, the daughter of Ariana, Nicolai, Christian, Stephan and Connor. The heir to the Ravana throne has not only gotten her name from her grandmother, she’s also inherited her visions. Thanks to those visions Izzy knows that she needs to unite the leading clans, in order to survive what comes next. At the same time Izzy dreams of having her own harem, like her mother. She wants to feel that love and unity with her mates, which is why she’s requested that each clan send a potential mate to her, so she can start moving forward with her destiny.
They say that the apple doesn’t fall far from the tree and that’s definitely the case here. In this book we not only get caught up on Ariana and her princes, as a reader you also quickly get a feel for Izzy’s personality – which seems to have equal amounts of traits from each of her parents.
The “create your own harem” is not something I’ve heard about before, but it’s actually very clever. What it means is, that there’s certain choices you, as a reader, can make which changes your story from what someone else have chosen. For example, are there someone you definitely don’t want in the harem? No problem, you can choose to skip ahead to the scenario where she doesn’t want him. What you do need to keep in mind is, that with every choice you take a different path. So, excluding someone could mean, that there’s others you can’t get, or it might have a different impact on the storyline later on.
The book is short (72 pages), too short for my personal liking. However, it seems like an appropriate instalment length with the added bonus of creating your own harem. Me? I’m so damn indecisive that I struggle to choose which serial to have for breakfast, so I just had to read both outcomes. Also, let’s not forget that this is only part 1 of the book.
Have you read this, or any of the Ravana Clan books? Want to read it? Let me know in the comments.
