Synopsis

LeKrista Scott has killed a vampire, and now his lover wants revenge.

After months of watching her from the shadows, Lucretious, a millennia old vampire, finally makes his attack during a party thrown by his maker, Roman - a party where Roman proclaims his protection over LeKrista. Roman steps in and saves her life, but not before she deals Lucretious the true death in front of his lover, Perdita. 

Now LeKrista is running for her life and Roman is trying to save it, but she's not sure if he really cares or if he has some underhanded reason for keeping her alive. She seeks help from Mages, but they refuse to help her, even though she exhibits high potential as a Mage herself. In a last ditch effort, Roman whisks LeKrista away, but Perdita finds them. LeKrista must eliminate Perdita one way or another.



I remember feeling wowed after seeing the cover for Scorned and reading the synopsis. I had to find out how LeKrista killed a vampire and what chain of events that would set off, especially with the vampire's lover hell-bent on revenge. 

LeKrista is a character who was for the most part likable and strong. She was brave even with all of the danger surrounding her and is the type to not go down without a fight, which saves her life time and again. I think she's interesting and intelligent, and I wanted more background on her before jumping into the action. 

I wasn't too sure of her relationship with Pierce - I wanted to like him but found him to be strange and not quite deserving of LeKrista's love. There was something about him I didn't trust; it was more of a feeling rather than something I could specifically point out.

Scorned is packed with a lot of action, and the twists and turns kept me guessing. I liked the story and the direction it took. I wanted to give Scorned at least one more star but couldn't because LeKrista passed out too many times to be believable, and I was confused with what was going on in the story at times. I needed things to be more clear, and a lot of action was skipped over during the times LeKrista was unconscious.  

With the huge potential I see in this story and Kemp's writing, I'm looking forward to reading Hunted.    

My Rating:

Synopsis

LeKrista Scott survived three separate vampire attacks, almost drowned, and turned down her boyfriend's proposal. What else could possibly go wrong?

Apparently, if it's not one thing, it's another. Lizette, a brand new vampire with a grudge, blames LeKrista for being turned into a monster. In retaliation, she decides to go straight for the throat, so to speak, and attack LK's ailing mother at her rest home. LeKrista enlists the help of her "Vampire liaison" Roman, but it could never be that easy. Not for her.

A daywalker, a born vampire who can walk in the sun, has been hired by the head of the Vampire Counsel to collect LeKrista and the debt she owes him. As payment, her great great aunt is taken. Once again, the Mages refuse to help, so what is a girl to do but rescue her family herself?

With her back against the wall, LeKrista will rise up stronger and teach the preternatural world to fear the Vampire Hunted.

    1. This book has a lot of potential. I posted my review of the second book today, and it blew the first one out of the water! I'm signing up to review the third book because I loved the potential of this book and ADORE the second book so much! I love the covers of these books - the cover model is gorgeous and kick ass. Thank you, Chanzie! :)
