My rating: 4 of 5 stars
As a fan of Nalini Singh’s Guild Hunter series, I’m surprised it took me this long to discover Vampire’s Kiss by Ella Summers. With powerful sexy angels, dangerous vampires and a kick ass electric blonde heroine, it would seem like reading another of Singh’s books. But it’s Summers’ writing style, world building and themes that help create a story that stands apart from Singh’s.
The first book in Summers’ Legion of Angels series, Vampire’s Kiss introduces a world full of monsters and gods where being “just” human is a risk. Leda Pierce is a bounty hunter who has no magical abilities but for Leda that’s okay as she has a family that loves her. Everything changes when her brother is taken and Leda’s only way to get him back is to join the Legion of Angels. As an elite group of warriors, they are given gifts from the gods to serve and protect but Leda has to survive the initiation first. Throw in an insanely sexy and dangerous angel named Nero, and Leda’s journey just got a lot more interesting.
Vampire’s Kiss is a great introduction into Summers’ world. I definitely recommend this book to fans of Nalini Singh’s Guild Hunter series.
