Wild Knight by Annabel Chase

Midnight Empire: The Tower, Book 1

Synopsis: In a world of darkness where royal vampires are in charge, I spend my days working as a knight in the city formerly known as London. Instead of a lance and a horse, I rely on my trusty axe, Babe, and ride the occasional dragon. Every day new threats emerge that require a dash of magic and a dollop of attitude.

Good thing I have both.

Naturally danger comes with the territory. What no one knows is just how dangerous it is for me. If our vampire overlords discover what I am, they’ll execute me on the spot—no questions asked—which is why I avoid them at all costs.

Until now.

If only this one didn’t have a lethal reputation, a princely pedigree, and a quest that leads to more questions than answers. The heat between us doesn’t help matters.

Unfortunately I can’t refuse a royal command, so I’m stuck until the job is complete.

And even if the job doesn’t kill me, the truth just might.

If you like humor, heart, a kickbutt heroine and an enemies-to-lovers romance, check out Wild Knight, Midnight Empire: The Tower, the first book in a new urban fantasy series.

Review: I was curious to discover this new urban fantasy series! Besides, I really like Annabel Chase’s novels so how could I resist?

London lives in a world very different from the one we know. The sun disappeared a long time ago and vampires have taken over the cities. It’s in this setting that London lives as a knight in the city’s lesser known order, helping people when they need it and especially when they pay. But then someone offers her a new job and that someone is none other than a vampire. Except she’s been running from them forever, knowing full well they’ll kill her if they find out what she really is. Even worse, this vampire is also a prince whose power could destroy her! But there’s no way she can refuse the job, he’s a prince, no one can… She will have to find her sister who has disappeared, as well as a stone that the vampire queen wants back. But why is she so interested in any stone?

This was a very enjoyable novel. London and Callan have a strong connection but our heroine knows that nothing good would come of such a relationship. Still, I’m quite curious to see what will happen between our two heroes!

This was an enjoyable first volume to read and I am very curious to find out what happens next!
