What did I think of the book?
A thousand years ago, Radu lost everything. His parents, his beloved, and his twin brother, Razvan. He has withdrawn from the world and chose sleep over life, for he could not face another night without the ones he loves.
The AIU wants to destroy all of Radu's kind and they will kill anyone who gets in their way, including Lillian Holmes's father. Lillian also works for the AIU, but like her father, she does not agree with the units policies when it comes to vampires. However, when she learns that her father has been murdered by a vampire, she wants justice. The AIU send Lillian to seek out Radu and kill him with a stake through the heart, knowing full well that she could never defeat such a monster. Her fate is assured. She will die. It was a good plan, but what the AIU didn't take into consideration is that Radu isn't the monster of fairy-tales. Despite Lillian trying to kill him, Radu spares her life. He will not fall foul to the AIU's dirty tactics. He didn't kill Joe Holmes.
Lillian believes Radu, and she realises that the AIU want her dead. She should stay in hiding for the rest of her life, but she is determined to find the real murderer and with Radu's help she will.
I am trying to think of something original to say about this book. I could use the words, spell-binding, a riveting page-turner, an action-packed adventure, a beautiful romance, a believable plot, but those words have been used before, and this book deserves something new. For want of a better word, this was an incredible five-star read.
Unleashing Desire is Book 4 in the Brides of Prophesy series. I haven't read the rest of the books in this series, but Unleashing Desire is so well-written that it stands on its own two feet. I never once felt like I had missed something. I thoroughly enjoyed it.
Lillian is a strong and determined woman who, despite herself, falls in love with a vampire. Her character is so well fleshed, that I wouldn't be surprised if I one day saw her walking down the street and as for Radu...I think he gives Robert Pattinson a run for his money!
I loved this book. I loved the world. I loved the characterisation. The back story was fabulous. The book is full of suspense. And the journey Lillian and Radu went on was so much fun to read about. This isn't just another vampire story or even another romance story. This is a well-crafted and well-planned book. The attention to detail is exquisite. I haven't come across a vampire romance as good as this in a long time and I wait with bated breath for book 5
I Highly Recommend.
