Alpha Promise

Overview

Wonderfully sublime and altogether sexy, The Alpha Promise by Hayat Ali reinvigorates the tired genre of vampire tales. While the enticing action and bloodletting remains, this debut novel takes a smart look at the undead-their legions and their way of life.

Overview

Wonderfully sublime and altogether sexy, The Alpha Promise by Hayat Ali reinvigorates the tired genre of vampire tales. While the enticing action and bloodletting remains, this debut novel takes a smart look at the undead-their legions and their way of life. It is not at all as simple and unplanned as one might imagine. Vampires have a method, and even in a modern day London, the undead still have a high prince who ubiquitously rules over all the creatures of the night just as he has for centuries. Jin is the most recent prince due to be crowned; he has been groomed for an entire lifetime. Poised to take his rightful place, a dissenting tribe tries to assassinate him and if it wasn't for the unwitting energies of a compassionate stranger-an American woman named Adina Carr-the tribe would have succeeded. What follows is an erotic and mesmerizing adventure, a fight for survival and, ultimately, a love story.

    Awesome Book!

    Best vampire story I've read in awhile. This book is not predictable and I am desperately waiting for the sequel.

    AWESOME!!!!

    First let me say I contacted B&N in regards to the error stating this book is by Dick Burdette. The Author is Hayat Ali which is labeled on the book. I hope this error is corrected soon. Now getting to the nitty gritty.... This book is AWWWWWWESOME!!! This book has gotten positive reviews on Amazon and I just had to read it. I have been waiting for a LONG time for B&N to make this book available in the e-book format. I have the Nook and I didn't want to purchase the paperback. Finally after some searching, I was able to get this e-book from another website. I usually read paranormal books that has to do with werewolves, so this is the first time venturing into the vampire arena. After reading it all I can say is WOW! I guess the reason this book is so good is because of the writer and the way she delivered the story. She had me captured in the first chapter. This book has action and romance and the characters are well developed. I will not recap on the story because I don't want to give anything away. If you like I/R vampire romance and suspense you will enjoy this story. This is a MUST READ, I highly recommend.
