Masquerade by Felicity Heaton. Book Review.

Ten years have passed since Sophis and Vivek, two vampires of the Venia bloodline, came close to death at the hands of twin hunters Aleksis and Izabella Romanov. The events of that night turned Sophis and Vivek against each other, shattering their close friendship and driving them apart.

Now, on the eve of a centenary Creator Day masquerade and at a time when things between them are dangerously close to separating them forever, they uncover a small army of vampire hunters in Saint Petersburg, led by their nemeses, Aleksis and Izabella.

With the safety of the rulers of the seven pure vampire bloodlines in their hands and their chance for vengeance hanging in the balance, can Sophis and Vivek face their past and overcome their differences? Will they realise their true feelings for each other before it’s too late or will the hunters finally claim their lives as their deadly plot to destroy the bloodlines unfolds?
My Review:

Sophos and Vivek are both guard for their bloodline, Venia. They used to be close. They used to be friends. But about a decade ago they both had a close call with death and it seemed to Sophos that this is when things changed between Vivek and herself.

A good part of Masquerade focuses on Sophos and Vivek and their conflict. Vivek seems to want to disgrace Sophos, saying she is not fit for her position on the guard. She is a liability.

Sophos spends her time trying to prove her worth and show Vivek and her superior that she can stand with the best and she has earned her position on the guard.

They both fight their true feelings for each other but they are made to work with one another. And eventually they find that they have to work together for the sake of their bloodline. There are some very powerful vampire hunters who are stirring up trouble...just in time for the big masquerade ball. All seven bloodlines will be there to celebrate and only the most important Lords and Ladies will attend. They realize that all of the bloodlines could be in danger.

This book is packed full of gripping action! The descriptions of each scene are painted brilliantly for the readers to see in their minds. I actually felt as though I was on the sidelines. I had the best seat in the house to all the hot action. The action was fast paced and gripping. It kept me wanting more and more. I didn't quite know who to trust and in the end I found that I was a bit off on my assumptions. The sexual tension started out as a small spark. Then it began to smolder and finally it just exploded onto the pages. The sex is full of carnal need, blood and hot lusty passion that had been denied for a decade. I loved everything about this book! What a great addition to The Vampire Realm series!
