Amy's Summer Reads: Quick-Fire Review: The Captive Series by Erica Stevens

Blood Slave.
Captured, taken from her beloved family and woods, Aria’s biggest fear is not the imminent death facing her, but that she will be chosen as a blood slave for a member of the ruling vampire race. No matter what becomes of her though, Aria knows that she must keep her identity hidden from the monsters imprisoning her. She has already been branded a member of the rebellion, but the vampires do not know the true depth of her involvement with it, and they must never know. Though hoping for death, Aria’s world is turned upside down when a vampire named Braith steps forward to claim her. He delays her execution, but Aria knows it’s only a matter of time before he drains her, and destroys her. Especially once she learns his true identity as a prince within the royal family; the same royal family that started the war that ultimately brought down humankind, reducing them to nothing more than servants and slaves. Aria is determined to hate the prince, determined not to give into him in anyway, but his strange kindness, and surprising gentleness astonish her. Torn between her loyalties to the rebellion, and her growing love for her greatest enemy, Aria struggles to decide between everything she has ever known, and a love she never dreamed of finding.

New Adult. This book contains some language, violence, and sexual situations. Recommended for ages sixteen and up.

I am just going to get right to it! I loved this series. I wasn't sure at first, because the covers aren't that great. Amazon knows what it's doing by offering the first book, Captured, for free. When I was done with
Captured, I immediately bought the next three in the series ($2.99 each).

This story starts out with a blood slave named Arianna (Aria), she has been bought by the Prince (heir to the throne of vampires) Wraith. Aria is the daughter of David who is the leader of the rebellion against vampires.  This story has a ton of action, romance and drama. I loved every minute of it. I read each book back-to back. I have compared this series to The Seven Realms Series. Now I just heard you gasp... The Seven Realms was/is epic. Writing. Characters. Story. Details. The Captive Series has great writing, storyline and characters as well. Details not so much. The series is much shorter than The Seven Realms.  However, there are battle scenes, castles, tree houses, caves, forests, prince, princesses and many other goodies in The Captive Series. 
Prince Wraith is one amazing heroine, he does not sparkle. He is way too manly for that! Aria holds her own as well, she has a feisty spirit, very much like Princess Raisa.

Get Captured from Amazon Kindle right now and start this series for free. You will be thanking me later. Ciao.

5 out of 6 for The Captive Series
