Okay! This book had me hooked! Where book one left me feeling..."meh" for the majority of the story as it got in gear, this book grabbed me from the beginning and held me down. Violet is back, but she's learning the hard way that Angel World is not what she thought it'd be. Mother is the Queen and man is she, one sadistic queen! Mother dearest wants Violet to be like her, but that's not really what Violet wants. But when given a sword that belongs to another, a little game of truth or dare becomes something more because her life is on the line...one way or the other. The longer that Violet stays in Angel World the darker she sees the angels to be. After a battle with the Fallen (vampires), her mother commands that she takes part in the warrior trials. Being half angel and half vampire, has she been condemned to die? Because should she fail, that is what will happen and her two friends will be forever lost. Looks like Violet is going to have to get geared up to take on a big bad situation. Vampire Princess by Rosemary A Johns is book two in her Rebel Angels series and I have to say I'm over the moon for this book. It captured my attention from the beginning and kept me riveted to the end. I see Violet evolving as a character. She has her moments, but I like that she questions and rebels. She tries to be helpful, even if it backfires more than a few times on her. I like the fact that she doesn't roll over for anyone. I really grow to like Violet's character in this book. I love how she cares for the younger angels and that she does what she can to try and keep them safe. The dynamics of this story are truly engaging. There is only one moment that I have to complain about in this book and it's one with Violet and another "broken" angel. I was disappointed in her that she doesn't step up for him. She knows that the angel who steps up to claim him intends to hurt him deeply. I wanted her to put herself aside for a moment with her morality and to take him. I'm disappointed when she turns her back on him. He deserved better than that. I truly enjoyed this book, and I am eagerly looking forward to the next book in this series. If you read the first book and enjoyed it then I highly recommend this book to you. I am rating this book 5 out of 5 stars.
Rosemary Johns is the queen when it comes to writing vampire books and now vampire and angels. It does not matter how many books she writes in a series, every new book just gets better and better. She has such great story lines, strong characters and an amazing writing style. What she really brings into a book is her imagination. How she comes up with plots and story lines like she does is just amazing. And every book is so believable and such a great book to read. In this 2nd book you get everything good, evil, love, hate, angels, vampires and action packed until the last page. When I get one of her books I know it will be a long night because I can not put them down until I finish the book. In this book Violet found out her mother is the poisonous Queen of Angel world. Then she finds out she will have to rule as a corrupted princess. She can try to escape but can she? With all the powers she has is it even possible? When Violet meets a harem boy who is also an angel he pulls her into a dark and twisted sport. Can she get out ? you all know how powerful she is. Can her geeky vampire and her Angel get out? Can she free them all? The war, can she stop it? Will anyone survive? I won't give anything away. You will have to get this book and see how all this turns out. You won't be sorry, Rosemary Johns has written another jaw dropping,heart stopping on the edge of your seat book!!!!!!! An absolute must read and I highly recommend this book. I absolutely loved this book.....
I loved book 1, Vampire Huntress, and now here's book 2, Vampire Princess. I loved it even more. Violet finds out that her mother is the Queen of Angel World. You would think Angel World would be heavenly, but you would be mistaken. She is forced to make a choice between ruling as a corrupted princess or risking a perilous escape. Violet is drawn into trails that even her powers may not be enough to get her through. She cannot refuse or She will lose both the angel and vampire she loves. Join Violet on her adventure and see what choices she makes.
Oh Rosemary A. Johns has done it again. She followed up Vampire Huntress with what I believe is an even better sequel. That is not easy to do. In Vampire Princess, we continue the journey along with Violet, the daughter that both the vampire and angel worlds desire!!! She finds out that her mom is a villainous and evil Queen. But to add insult to injury, Violet must now serve as a princess by her mother's side or risk the lives of those she holds dear. Rosemary A. Johns gives us more of the vivid vampire/angel world that she has created in such beautiful detail with stunning, feisty and downright brutal characters. I am in love with the geek...have to admit it! Violet faces trials and choices that have her questioning herself and the world around her. Such a fantastic heroine whom I'd love to meet someday!!!
Violet continues her search for Jade and the "disappeared kids of Hackney." She is tricked into Angel World by someone she trusted, Drake, to become like her mother , the Matriarch, Queen of Angels. Her mission is to make Violet as evil as herself. She nearly succeeds, but Violet fights it when Ash, Rebel, and Haman become part of the stakes. Full of action and twists, with a great plot and characters. I received a complimentary copy and freely give my honest review.
Violet has been tricked into going to Angel World. After growing up in the human world abandoned and alone, she's finally found her mother, who just happens to be the Queen of Angels. But being princess isn't all it's cracked up to be. Violet must find out who and what she really wants to be before all is lost.
“And now it was time to fly. Away from perfection. Above it. Because I was the rebel princess.”
Johns’ world building is clearly well thought out and extremely inventive. The main characters I've grown to love and hate from the first installment are back with a new cast. The lies and treachery keep you guessing throughout.
I've found, after reading all, or most of Johns’ work, her writing style at first was hard to put into words except extraordinary. But I've finally found a way to sort of describe it. Yes there's some British slang that's really fun as an American to see the cultural differences. She also has a uniqueness that far surpasses Anne Rice because I find it to be poetic. She doesn't just spell it out for you. You have to interpret what's being said with the context of what's happening in the story. It's so very impressive! I am left thinking about her tales long after I've finished reading them. Award winning material here folks! Highly recommended!
OMG!!!! I freaking LOOOOOOVE this book!!! Book 1 was awesome as heck, but book 2? Holy crap amazing! I received an ARC of this book and completely and totally review because I want to. In this book, you end up feeling for characters you really didn't like in book 1, and continue to love the ones you loved. Or do you? Violet is totally bad a$$! I absolutely love how her character is growing into absolute destruction!!! I can not wait to see how everything goes down between her, her fam and the ridiculously mean angels and vamps. There's so much that I want to say in this review, but it'd give too many spoilers, so I'll leave it at saying..... You will NOT be disappointed with this book! Rosemary A. Johns has such a great imagination and tells a story in a way that I've not found in other authors. Again I can't wait for the next book and I wish I could give this book more stars!
I have really enjoyed reading Rosemary's work. Everything is detailed vividly and the descriptions she goes into makes you feel as if you are right there with the characters. It makes it so easy to breathe everything in and enjoy the book as if it's your own life story. Character development is amazing with great chemistry. There isn't anything I would change or request to be written differently in this title. Amazing second book in this series!!! Can't wait to read more of her work!
Wow, I can't tell you how much I loved reading this book, Mrs. Johns grabbed my attention from the very first book and I couldn't wait to read the second book in this series! And, oh man Mrs. Johns didn't disappoint with this second book, I loved, loved loved following Violets story in this second book, although everything she has gone through up to this point would probably break me, it is great to see how she is strong and can give as good as she gets! I hope that there will be more books in this series because Mrs. Johns has me hooked on her series!
Book: Vampire Princess (Rebel Angels) (Volume 2) Author : Rosemary A Johns Wow... next we find Violet in the Angel World. Did she choose this world of did it choose her?
