I was just a reporter, trying to stay ahead of my student loans. I knew the rules, and I followed them.
I thought I knew how the world worked—humans lived their petty little lives in the safety of the sun. We loved and fought and—when the sun sank—we scurried behind our walls and lived in fear. That is when the monsters came out to play.
And even in the safety of the sun, we knew who ruled us.
The Houses. And their Scions.
Everyone knows the great Houses and their Scions—they are feared and loved and hated and envied. They are the gods who walk the shadows and rule all of our lives. They are salvation and death.
And somehow, I am one of them.
Farley Hart is a reporter in a world where vampires lived in plain sight. But one day, not only a prince comes for her but a Blade too. Farley has a lot of things to learn, Octavian and Sulla will help her.
Farley is strong girl, she’s determined, she’s afraid of vampires because they kill her parents. But all her life is a lie and she will have to fight for and with vampires. She won’t be alone because her brother, Winston will come with her and protect her the best he can.
I like Farley she’s a warrior, she didn’t hesitate to speak in front of vampires. She’s afraid but she’s acting like she’s not.
I like Octavian too, he’s the Blade, his job is to protect the Scion but he’s attracted to her. He’s trying to resist but it’s hard for him. I really hope that he will fight for her until the end and don’t let what he is changing his feelings.
Sulla is great, I love him, he is smart and he suffers a lot from his father, the only reason for him to be in this adventure is Farley, he finds her interesting and refreshing.
The story with the Houses and the Scion is very interesting. Nazarea has created a great world and I really want to read the sequel and find out what will happen to Farley, O and Sulla.
The only reproach I can make it is that the story moves forward quickly and sometimes I would have liked having more details. The relation between Octavian and Farley is strange. The action when they are in Canada is fast, I think there is missing some moments for the book to be awesome.
I really would love to see more Scion and more houses in the next book.

THE SCIONLESS HOUSE – BLURB:
Twelve Houses. Twelve vampire lines. We ruled from the shadows, and manipulated the world, and when humans came too close to destruction, we intervened.
Every House has a Scion. A fragile, easily broken human that stood shoulder to shoulder with the house Princes and Princesses.
Except for ours. The Ravens, House Cantelie.
We’ve been without a Scion for almost fifteen years.
But that will change…and her life will be mine to protect.THE SCIONLESS HOUSE – LINKS:
