Captured by Erica Stevens
ASIN: 0087G3U92 (E-book)
Pages: 186

Blood Slave.
Captured, taken from her beloved family and woods, Aria’s biggest fear is not the imminent death facing her, but that she will be chosen as a blood slave for a member of the ruling vampire race. No matter what becomes of her though, Aria knows that she must keep her identity hidden from the monsters imprisoning her. She has already been branded a member of the rebellion, but the vampires do not know the true depth of her involvement with it, and they must never know.
Though hoping for death, Aria’s world is turned upside down when a vampire named Braith steps forward to claim her. He delays her execution, but Aria knows it’s only a matter of time before he drains her, and destroys her. Especially once she learns his true identity as a prince within the royal family; the same royal family that started the war that ultimately brought down humankind, reducing them to nothing more than servants and slaves.
Aria is determined to hate the prince, determined not to give into him in anyway, but his strange kindness, and surprising gentleness astonish her. Torn between her loyalties to the rebellion, and her growing love for her greatest enemy, Aria struggles to decide between everything she has ever known, and a love she never dreamed of finding.

Holy SHEETS guys, I don’t even know what to think right now. This book completely blew me away. Even the cover is gorgeous. I honestly don’t even know where to start so that’s going to be a bit of a problem. Okay, let’s start with some background info of the story.

Arianna, nicknamed Aria by her friends and family lives as a daughter of the rebellion, against the tyranny of the vampires. She is kidnapped one day during a raid and sold to be a blood slave. By chance or not, she is bought by Prince Braith, heir to the vampire throne. Aria fully expects to be brutally beaten and ravaged, but finds that Braith seems to almost have a humane side to him. Unfortunately, he seems to be the only one as his father and brother Caleb are still ruthless and bloodthirsty.

The relationship between Arianna and Braith. Oh, my heart. I don’t think it can get any better than what is already is. Arianna is wary of him, of course she is! He’s the epitome of what her father warned her against. Yet, he’s not like the rest of the vampires. He’s actually nice. Fortunately for her, she’s not the only one who’s freaked. Braith has no idea why he even auctioned for her in the first place. She’s pretty darn stubborn and not all too pretty, but there’s something about her that just opens his eyes (spoiler kinda). He’s just so gentle and caring it breaks my heart into a thousand little pieces.

Braith teaches Arianna how to read and shows her the world which she had been lost to by living in the woods serving the rebellion. As their relationship grows, so does Braith’s worry about someone finding out their relationship and Arianna’s impatience to be free. When the youngest vampire prince “returns” for his undercover mission, Arianna is stunned to find he’s a close friend of hers. He begs her to leave with him or her father will attack to save her. Okay, at this point in the story, I was dying with feels. Braith should DEFINITELY leave with her and they can be happy and free and perfect! Of course, things don’t end that way. Jericho/Jack/youngest vamp prince manages to convince Arianna to leave saying that Braith was engaged and could never be with her.

NOW WHY THE WORLD WOULD YOU SAY THAT? UGH, yes I’m spoiling it for you, guys, but WHYYYYYY? Arianna’s heartbroken, Braith after finding her gone goes beserk. The ending ended me and kept me up all night crying. I just can’t. I REALLY recommend it but please be prepared for heartbreak at the end. But it’s all good! Why? I read the blurbs for the rest of the books in the series (Sorry, I couldn’t help myself) and it’s going to be okay. *takes deep breath*

Hope I didn’t spoil things too bad for you because this is definitely an amazing read and it’s FREE for the Kindle so go check it out and we can freak about it together!!

His eyes were gleaming with amusement as he wagged the stake before her, "The nightstand leg?"
"Destructive little human."

Her splendid inner glow had always resided within her, and it was one of the most exquisite things he had ever encountered.

For the first time he understood the fountain statues and the yearning on their faces. He was starting to realize that to always look but never truly be able to touch, was a special kind of torment.

Sorta? I couldn't find an actual book trailer, but this showcases the series.
