Review – Drinking Death by Mara Lee


Title: Drinking Death


Author: Mara Lee


Publisher: Liquid Silver Books


Buy Link: Buy Drinking Death Here!


Rating: You Want to Read


Reviewed By: Valentina C.


Story Blurb:


And out of the darkness one will rise. One will breed true. One will rule.


Annaleigh Savage wants none of the prophecy and none of the madness that comes


from the throne being forced upon her. She has run far and fast and tried to redefine her


life completely … and yet … they still come. As the last Blood Princess it is her duty to


take her seat upon the Blood Throne. But what happens when the Princess of the Blood


decides that the Blood Throne just doesn't suit her? A battle of wills will ensue unlike any


seen before. And in this game of life and death, death seems to win every time.


Review:


This is a witty book. Don't get me wrong, there are faults (strange syntax issues, grammatical mistakes, and at least one word that is not used as its meaning requires) but the dialogue makes up for most of them. It is fresh and quick, which is not the usual in romance novels, where the language is stilted with moans and archaic endearments.


Annaleigh, our vampire heroine, is likeable and I found myself chaffing as much as she under the vampire conventions and rules. The only thing that got old very quickly was the use of "Blood Princess". It seems like every other sentence had some reference to it or some bold exclamation along the lines of "I am the Princess, you must obey me!" After the fifth time, I think we've got it, no need to keep stating it.


Overall, I would recommend this book for a fun, breezy read. The rest of the series might have potential, we will see. And yes, the whole vampire-with-good-intentions thing has been done ad nauseum but really, if we are honest with one another, isn't it still just a tad bit fabulous?
