BLOG TOUR: My POV of Stolen Nights by Rebecca Maizel

Stolen Nights (Vampire Queen, #2)
Paperback, 303 pages
Expected publication: January 29th 2013 by St. Martin's Griffin 
Lenah Beaudonte should be dead. But having sacrificed herself to save another, she finds herself awakening with strange powers that are neither vampire nor human—and a new enemy on her trail. In her vampire life, Lenah had thought that being human was all she ever wanted; but the human heart suffers pain, heartbreak and loss.

With her new powers growing and the dark force of the Nex after her soul, Lenah faces a choice: between the mortal love of gorgeous Justin, whose passion fed her human soul, and taking a different path to become the mistress of her own destiny, wherever that may lead.

My POV

There are only so many ways to really express how deeply you feel about a story. With this book I was bursting with emotion from beginning to end. This is not your ordinary vampire story full of only seduction and blood lust. It’s also an epic love tale that will beat the test of time and space. 

The love story between Rhode and Lenah is so powerful, so deeply moving, so overwhelmingly beautiful. Just thinking about it makes tears come to my eyes. As you can tell this was a very sentimental read for me. I’m a sucker for a good love story!

Following the very dramatic ending in Infinite Days Vicken is now human and once again Lenah’s devoted companion. But there relationship is quite different. They no longer have romantic feelings for each other but still have a very strong bond. Friendship. 

As Lenah tries to settle back into school she soon finds that a new coven is after the ritual which will convert a vampire back into a human, a ritual that only Rhode, Lenah, and Suleen know how to perform. The leader of this new coven is a familiar face from Lenah’s past, one that had never been a threat but now a force not to be ignored. 

In this book more friends are dying. More spells preformed. New friends are found. The Hollow Ones are revealed and the Aeris explain that there are consequences for using such powerful elemental magic.

The ending was so moving, so soul shattering it took my breath away. I have read Rhodes letter about ten times and the knot in my stomach never eased up one bit. The decision Lenah makes is monumental in the journey of her and Rhodes life. It left me speechless!

Now that I’m broken hearted and practically catatonic (haha! JK) I will fill my days of reading other stories and comparing them to this one. I say good luck to those who cross my path!  You have big shoes to fill. I beg that they area  as wonderful and epic as this one.

Anam Cara. A soul friend. When one finds her Anam Cara, the connection is undeniable. Unyielding. It is a white string of light connecting two souls through space and time. Some believe the Anam Cara share a  mind. A mind of a past so deep, so interconnected, that they can share thoughts."

"You," I whispered,"are worth every moment I have left on this earth. Even if I have to love you from afar for the rest of my days."
