The Vampire's Spell: Taken by the Night by Lucy Lyons

Caroline has been a ward of the Venatores lamiae (vampire hunters) ever since a vampire brutally murdered her parents in front of her as a toddler. On vacation with David, her best friend and secret crush, Caroline gets separated from her friends. All alone, she’s overpowered and kidnapped by a vampire to serve as a gift to his master.

Terrified at first that her fate will be the same as her parents, Caroline slowly comes to realize not all vampires are as deadly as Venatores have taught her. The master is genteel and kind. Despite his great power, he lets her speak freely and teaches her about the secret pact between their peoples.

Caroline learns to question the hate that has fueled her all her life, but, also discovers that David has been taken. Not protected by Nicholas, he’s been tortured by the same vampire that took her, the master’s own brother. For her, there is no choice. David is her brother and her best friend. She offers herself freely. No longer as a prisoner, but a willing student of the master, she faces the Venatores when they invade the master’s lair.

Her love for her people makes her a willing sacrifice to save them all. But, her growing affection for Nicholas, Master of the City, gives her the strength to face her own unique power. She must make a choice between the lives she is offered. Now, with growing faith in her own abilities and the ardour of a master vampire, the choice she makes will be her own.

I was really pleasantly surprised by the story. Even though the heroine of the story was a young girl I’ve only 17, she had a sense of being much older. The story kept me involved from the beginning till the end and made me want to read the second book.

In Taken By The Night, author Lucy Lyons presents a new take on vampires and vampire hunters. From the first pages of this story, Lyons grabs the reader and does not let go until the finale. Presenting Caroline's character, in the first pages, I found a competitive, strong, determined young woman on the verge of adulthood. Giving her brothers of the spirits on which she could reply for security and care, Lucy Lyons also wove plot lines of love into the story line. However, one of her spirit brothers is holding devastating secrets. I could not stop reading as I watched Caroline come to terms with the different theologies and opinions of the two groups. As well as, the half-truths she received. As Lyons matured Charlotte, I found a woman torn by emotion and the secrets she found. Caroline must face her desires and come to terms with what she really wants. "I don't know anything, except what the Venatores want me to. Because of you, now I know that's practically nothing. But you must know so much---" Nicholas character's multi-leveled. Fascinated with Carolina and her abilities, as Master Vampire, he must keep his perspective. Who could better tell Nicholas of the new world in which he awoke; and who better could tell Caroline the other side of the vampire and hunter equation? As Carolina stated: "she live on both side of the veil between humanity and the creatures of the night" Including power struggles within and without, jealousy, half-truths, lies, and an intense emotional love scene, Lyons created a first-class new series. Although an intense love scene includes wording such as: "his hand slid over her breast" or "I felt him grow aroused", this book does not contain erotica, explicit, graphic, or descriptive sex. It's wonderful to read a vampire book which is not a 5+ on the heat scale. I always loved vampire stories, however, I stopped reading and reviewing them because of the graphic sex in August, 2016. In the past, I always hated skipping large portions of the book which included erotica, graphic or explicit sex. Thank you Lucy Lyons for a series I can enjoy; rating for this book would be very mild on the heat scale. I found Taken By The Night's a solid well-written book with well-developed characters and a story-line which intrigues and entertains. Lyons' scenes transition smoothly from scene to scene, her writing flows well, and her description of the vampire lair vivid; the footmen, the gowns, the sumptuous surroundings, and beauty; as well as, the stark contrast of the cells. I would not hesitate to buy this book for myself or a friend. Suitable for young adults and adults. TAKEN BY THE NIGHT RECOMMENDATION: STARS 4 FINALLY, PLEASE NOTE Additionally, I purchased this book and chose to voluntarily review the book with honest contemporary paranormal romance book reviews. Lastly, book reviews of any novel are dependent on the book review author’s opinion. Consequently, all book reviews on-line and on my blog, are my opinions. In addition, no one influences my voluntary contemporary paranormal romance book reviews.
