Laura Kaye is an author to keep your eye on folks! She knows how to write a story that catches your attention at the first word and leaves you wanting more with the last.

In The Service of the King, she weaves a tale born from an historical background, but takes place in present day, with a young girl that has been raised to know that her destiny is to be an offering to the Vampire King. This is necessary to keep him and his guard strong in order to protect society from the evil beings that killed Shayla's older sister, so she is more than willing, nay, even eager to make this sacrifice.

Kael, the Fair, King of the Vampires, detests that he must partake of the proffered, and has vowed to do only what he must, without making any permanent link between them. Once he sees Shayla, his body and mind betrays him and he cannot resist her.

I took this book to bed with me to read - and my husband kicked me out! He said I was squirming around like I had restless leg syndrome, LOL! Well, his loss - that wasn't my problem. This story was HOT! I couldn't quit reading it until I finished it, and I'm pretty sure I'm going to be reading it again - and again! Laura knows how to make a gal wish she was with an Irish vampire who knows his way around a female's body ;-)

    Nice

    Nice is such an undescriptive word. Need i say more about this story. I was confused, was the girl american? As she went too high school & summer school & graduated early @ 16. Because if she was english she would have FINISHED Secondary school(not graduate as nobody graduates anything until uni) at 16 anyway. As we do in england. We start scholl 2 years earlier & finish 2 years earlier than the yanks. So that bothered me some. The author either didn't do her reaserch or just didn't once mention america even when talking anout school.

    Shayla has been working hard to find a way to avenge her sister&

    Shayla has been working hard to find a way to avenge her sister’s murder. Finally finds that way, in the King of Vampires. She just never imagined how much it would change her life.

    Kael is just doing what he has to do to survive and have his people survive. But the last thing he wants to do is feed. But one look into Shayla’s mismatched eyes everything changes.

    I liked this story, but didn’t love it. I was hoping for a little more action. Maybe a rescue scene or two, but at last it was not to happen. I really wished this story was long. It felt a little rushed to me. I felt like there was more to the story that was not told. Maybe Laura is planning another story for these two. I would like to know what happens next for them. Does Shayla get the revenge she seeks? Does Kael keep his family and people safe? So many questions

    Good light reading

    I wasn't overly impressed. The story was fairly original, but could have been better if there had been more to it. As a short story, I enjoyed the supernatural aspect, but was left wanting more.
