* ALERON * Kane brings the undead to life

I was lucky enough to win a copy of ALERON in a giveaway. Being a big fan of vampires, I was anxious to read Kane's debut novel and I wasn't disappointed. The book reminds me of Anne Rice's Vampire Chronicles, but the author has his own stunning and unique take on the world of the vampire. Aleron's story begins in 1791 with his mortal life. The pace is a bit slow at the start but soon picks up and I was enthralled. Kane brings the undead to life with his characterization. And his historical detail sets the scene perfectly. Highly recommended.

Product Description from Amazon

Aleron must cope with a timeless existence, seeing those he loves suffer the fate of mortality, while he remains cursed with eternal life. What if your immortal origin as well as others of your kind were hidden from you by the one you loved most; the one who gave you into a life of darkness and a lust for the sweetest nectar? These dilemmas and more face Aleron, but he must first learn to live, to survive, and most of all, to feed.

Seduced by the alluring vampire Mynea, Aleron learns what it truly means to be immortal as he adapts to his new life and new insatiable lust. She is teaching him to give her what her maker never has. She desires a new king and a new coven. Hearts, minds, and vampire souls intertwine as long kept secrets crawl out from the grave, refusing to remain buried beneath earth and lies. A blood kiss between them reveals a darker and even deadlier soul that has learned of Aleron’s blasphemous existence. Vlad is the beginning, the father of them all. Mynea must not let her young prince learn of her ancient king. Can a vampire truly love and trust another of his kind when their very lives depend on skillful deceit?
