Dark Lover by J R Ward

Title: Dark Lover, first a series

Author: J R Ward

Genre: Paranormal

Summary: A newsreporter is about to be transformed into a vampire; her father asks his best friend to watch over and protect her from their enemies.

The Take-Away: Sounds rather generic, but the transformation isn't because she's been bitten. In this series, vampires are a different species. You can't be bitten, they won't drink your blood and they simply want to be left to their own devices.

But they do have a ruling class, but their king just wants to be one of the six warriors and not a leader. The Scribe Virgin has other plans for him. She doesn't coerce him, but she is awfully persuasive.

I really liked this book. Everything from the author's voice, tone and style, to the twisting of the vampire lore. I can't wait to read the others; there's six total in the series.

Recommendation: Get it, and wait for the others.
