My Reluctant Warden ( Ward of the Vampire2) by Kallysten

Hello to all!,

                  If you remember in March i shared with you my opinion on the first part of a new book by Kallysten " Ward of the Vampire", it's in fact the second serial that i'm sharing with you ( after "Storm force "whose last episode is released today so tomorrow will be our last weekly discussion post).... i thought part 1 had a lot of potential, you can read my review HERE,so when the opportunity to review book 2 appeared i jumped on the occasion and i don't regret it at all!!

I can only suggest you to add it on your wishlist on amazon because Kallysten is really generous and will make this second part available for free really soon ( and the amazon wishlist will inform you as soon as its price is reduced), part one was free early this month, perhaps it's stil  the case where you live but even if it's not... don't worry it will be free again so keep you eyes open. Or if you can't wait, today is the release date so you can bought it here

Happy Reading!

Short description from goodreads :

 When her boss brought her to the party of the season, Mr. Ward’s birthday bash, Angelina thought she had slipped on Cinderella’s shoes.

Now that she is compelled to remain in the mansion, trapped with a host who was only pleasant to her in a shared fantasy, the dream abruptly turns sour.

Under other circumstances, she might enjoy staying in an opulent guest suite, with a butler waiting on her every desire. But her cage, as gilded as it may be, remains a prison, and her host, even if he wishes she were gone, is still her warden.

As she struggles to get used to the situation, she can’t figure out what to think of Morgan Ward, a man who claims to be a vampire, who at times ignores her and at times shows himself unexpectedly thoughtful. A man she’s attracted to despite her better judgment.

However, an unexpected conversation with her boss may give her no choice but to get much closer to Morgan than she’s ready for…

My opinion:
          I appreciate the fact that the author took what the readers said into account. If you remember my review of the first part “ Ward of the Vampire”, I liked the story but I regretted it was so short and  ended with a cliffhanger since I really don’t like them.

My reluctant Warden is different, the story is still well written and the plot interesting but this time the difference between fantasy part, when Angelina is dreaming, and the event when she is awake are really well differentiated. You can’t confuse them anymore and I think that at this time of the story it’s a good thing. As Angelina learn more about the vampires and their specificities so do the reader .I enjoyed this way to discover more about Morgan. In this story we can see how thoughtful he can be, so kind and it the same time he can be so distant… I get the feeling he is afraid of something.

Angelina is trying to find how to act with Morgan because she is starting to understand that she isn’t the only one suffering so her anger against her Warden is abating.  I enjoy the character of Stephen and I hope we will learn more about him, how he came to work for Morgan and discovered he was a vampire etc.

Now the good news ^^ proof that good authors are attentive to their readers… this books is longer, nearly the double of part 1, and there isn’t a cliffhanger!! It’s not the end of the book so it’s still an open ending in a way but no need to get anxious or stress  it’s a good place to make a break until the next part is released. Also there was more humour in this second part and i often had a little smile while turning the pages.

You want a paranormal romance with steamy scene but slowly building relationship? This is a excellent book for you then.

Score:  4,5/5

  1. C'est sympa, je ne connaissais pas du tout celui ci mais je vais y penser. Je suis un peu à la bourre niveau livres.

    1. c('est en plusieurs parties mais si tu es patiente généralement Kallysten mets les partie précédents gratuite on amazon pour un jour ou deux un peu avant chaque nouvelle parution ( et elle a en plus 1 histoire gratuite par mois) donc tu peux le mettre sur ta wishlist on amazon pour recevoir un avertissement dès que ça devient gratuit pour ne pas le manquer ^^

      et en bonus il y a des comics sur son site qui montre ce qui se passe entre les les "livres" ou qui illustre le point de vue de Morgan lors de certain évenement ( un peu comme Curran POV) c'est court mais vraiment interessant quand on suit le livre
