Overview

An Urban Fantasy Romance set in a United States where vampires are another oppressed minority in search of cultural acceptance, and featuring a ruling vampire family that wants to change that - the Fiscards.

As part of their plan to connect with mainstream mortal America, when one of their own is unjustly accused of murdering a human, the Fiscards hire one of New York's hottest young attorneys — a young woman by the name Aurora Lake — to stand by them in Vampire Court.

But not every vampire wants to be assimilated, and not everybody approves of the obvious attraction between Aurora Lake and Sebastian Fiscard.

As they struggle with their own feelings and with unseen, ancient forces trying to put a stop to their work — and to Aurora — will Aurora and Sebastian overcome The Resistance? And what about their resistance to what their own hearts, mortal and immortal, know to be true?

    I received this book from the author in exchange for an honest review.

    The Vampire Code is the story of Aurora, a young lawyer whose life changes after she is chosen to represent a vampire accused of murder. She is excited to be the first human to practice in Vampire Court, but soon finds herself embroiled in a life that is completely different from anything she could have anticipated when she met Sebastian Fiscard.

    E.C. Adams does a great job describing the personality of Aurora. She is the type of lawyer that I would want defending me in court! I enjoyed her interaction with the jury in Vampire Court and liked how she was such a strong female character. Aurora was extremely believable in her actions as she adjusted to perilous situations that would have weakened the meek.

    Sebastian in my mind was just a total hunk and he seemed extremely caring in the way he watched over Aurora even before either expressed their feelings for each other. I would have liked for him to have been a little more affectionate with Aurora at the beginning of the story, just so I could have understood why she fell so quickly in love with him. But you know what, who wouldn't want to fall in love with a gorgeous vampire like Sebastian!

    Vampire Code had a great supporting cast. I fell in love with Sebastian's mother, Ani, and would definitely want her watching after me! I loved Sebastian's brother, Alexander, and thought he added some great comic relief to the story. The scariest character had to be Sebastian's sister, Hespera. She scared me to my core and is not a woman I would want to cross!

    The second half of The Vampire Code was my favorite part as it was full of action. I was continually surprised by situations that I did not see coming and that kept me reading late into the night. E.C. Adams had quite a few tricks up her sleeve with this novel, and I thoroughly enjoyed every one of them. I definitely recommend The Vampire Code and look forward to reading her sequel.

    I was given a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

    Aurora Lake is a no-nonsense defense lawyer who doesn't back down from a challenge. This time the challenge comes in the form of a vampire named Sebastian Fiscard. Sebastian has asked Aurora to defend his vampire brother against murder charges.....against a human. The case will be tried in Vampire Court and if she takes the case, she will become the first human to ever set foot inside the court. The world is changing and humans know of vampires but are still leery of them. Vampires are fighting for integration into society, but it is an uphill battle. Having Aurora try this case will help with the relationship between vampires and humans. But at what cost? What is Aurora willing to risk to see this through? Is there something else going on with this odd request other than what is on the surface?

    I really liked this book a lot! The premise is so different because humans and vampires exist together. Humans aren't vampire food and vampires lead seemingly normal lives. But, there is so much more to the story. I can't divulge too much information because I don't want to give spoilers, but I can tell you that there are many twists and turns that you do NOT see coming. There is another dynamic involved than just the murder trial. That is a small part of this story but it sets everything in motion. I cannot wait until the next book comes out! I wish I could tell you more about what happens, but it would ruin it for you. If you want to find out, read it. You will not be disappointed. Well, maybe you will when the book is over and you have to wait for the next one!
