In Marie Antoinette's Paris, the beautiful vampire Viviane seeks a male patron who will allow her to live on her own terms. Courted by two feuding brothers, Viviane succumbs to the handsome rebel, Rhys. She's unaware that Rhys has other, darker, motives. He seeks vengeance against his brother, Constantine—by stealing Viviane and tainting her with his blood.
But just as Rhys is realizing the depth of his love for Viviane, his brother takes his revenge. By casting a spell on the woman they both desire, he condemns her to a living death inside a glass coffin.
Two centuries later, Rhys hears the legend of the Snow White vampiress, imprisoned deep in the tunnels under Paris. He must find her and set her free, but will he be able to save her from the evil still intent on destroying them?
I could not get into this book. I wanted to love it. I love all of the other Michele Hauf books I have had the pleasure of reading but this one I just couldn't get into. I read about 3/4s of the way and just stopped having no desire to finish. I think the story is pretty neat, like the idea and the way she told it. I love the cover as well, it is gorgeous, like all her others. As I said, I wanted to love it, but this one wasn't for me. Give it a try for yourself though, it is a very interesting and fresh concept. Check out these other reviews too:
