I received a free copy from the author and voluntarily reviewed itHaving recently read Distant Light by this author I was excited to start this new series The Vectum is a decent start of this new series but failed to fully suck me into the story The main reason for this is that it's really short The story is only about 4 chapters long and I read it in half an hour There was enough going to make me curious to see how the story will continue But I am not fully sure yet what to think of the series so farThe Vectum is about Amaya who needs money and uick her last boss made sure no one will hire her and she ends up starting a job at the local vampire blood bank Vampires can go there to drink from willing humans or take them up to the private rooms for a little bit privacy and extra service I thought the whole blood bank thing for vampires made sense although the vibe of this one did feel a bit icky to me but I think that's the point Amaya has an interesting encounter there and a bit of a scareI found it hard to really buy into the whole reason Amaya needs this job It just felt a bit off? As the reason why she needs money is because her landlord upped the rent with a lot of money per month even tough her parents already paid her rent for a year And it is a lot of money extra per month I guess I just don't get why she didn't take legal action as what her landlord was doing was obviously wrong And then she doesn't want to ask her parents for help as they are on a vacation but this seemed solvable with a short phone call or online transaction so I just didn't get that part Ofcourse it's essential for the plot that she needs extra money but I would've liked a reason that felt believable to meAmaya seems like a nice enough main character so far She has a bit of a temper which I didn't care for but she is honest and speaks her mind which I did like I had a bit of trouble getting a feel for what she thought of the whole vampire blood bank situation and having to work there I thought it was interesting she's a human living in this city filled with supernaturals but so far not much is done with that She also seemed curious and open minded so far Then there is a hint of a potential romance and what I think is one of the love interests we get introduced to He seems nice enough and wants to help and protect Amaya Although it did rub me wrong how he used his gift power whatever it is was which felt uite intrusive to me without asking Amaya first I am wondering what he is hiding as he has this whole mysterious vampire vibe going on and I wonder what he is going to show AmayaWe get to meet Amaya's best friend as well in this book and a few other side characters There is very little world building so far but that's because it's a short read than that anything's really missing or lacking And as I read another book by this author already I used that to fill in some world building knowledge because as far as I know all these series take place in the same worldTo summarize It's hard to really get a feel for this story as it's so short but it was an interesting start of this new series There are some things that make me curious about what's going to happen next but I am not fully sold yet on this series I liked the main character and what I think is one of the love interest well enough but felt like I didn't fully get a good feel of them yet I am looking forward to getting to know them better in the next book I thought the reason for her needing money felt a bit off it just felt a bit contrived to me and I thought another action would've made sense given what happened I am curious about the next book 45 Stars One of the best Fae worlds I've read since Karen Moning's fever series The world had a whimsical Alice in Wonderland vibe but was very original in the description of creatures and environment It's a five part serial read and I rapidly moved on to each installment so the pacing was excellent I wish the rest of the story was available but even though the story is left open ended there was no annoying cliffhanger but of a HFN happily for now If an author can actually write there's really no need to torture a reader with a cliffhanger and Ms Adler can write So far so goodI knew this was a series going in but read it anywayThere is one paragraph that repeats in the beginning other then that the editing is pretty goodAmaya has a balance problem lol The girl nearly fell twice within a 5 minute reading span she also doesn't have much of a backbone Given that I have NOT read the books before this I am waiting to see if she grows Not much to go off for Vasily and Jules in 46 pagesInterested to see where this goes Amaya was being led through a Vampire Vectum a human blood source to feed vampires Miss Cheryl took her to the bottom level where she would start her new job She was told that if she wanted money in the future she would be moved upstairs – but she wasn’t sure what that meant The whole reason for needing this job was that Miss Cheryl’s brother – the landlord – raised the rent on her parents’ apartment right after they had left on vacation Amaya who lived with them did not have the extra money to pay and refused to bother her already generous parents by asking for money They had already paid ahead a year’s rent to begin with They would have dropped everything and come home if they knew so she would earn the money to pay the increased rentMiss Cheryl proceeded to drag Amaya into the changing room makeup room outfit room etc to show her what would look best on her to focus on her most alluring uality Amaya’s old waitressing job with the lying boss was starting to look better to her with each step of this process But Miss Cheryl explained that the dress up and role play attracts the vampires They can get blood anywhere but the added attraction here increased business and brought in much moneyVasily is her first customer He asks her very strange uestions – he apparently knows who she is He leads her upstairs despite her protest saying he can take her where he chooses But she tells him again she doesn’t want to go upstairs He agreed but told her he wants her exclusively and will pay for her time permanently She is to not allow any other vampire to drink from her And he told her that he would be bringing friends who would want to meet herAs Amaya sits in a window seat waiting to see if she can go home another vampire approaches His eyes show menace and he roughly grabs her arm and pulls her to her feet He wants her and wants the “extra” When she refuses he throws her over his shoulder and drops her onto a bed Throwing money on the bureau he tells her to strip; and when she refuses he decides to make it rough and take her anyway She screams scratches his face and he slaps her hard across the face How will she escape from this danger? He is so much stronger than she and his red eyes show his fury I was drawn in by this introduction to a new series There is an air of mystery as we find a strange unexplained encounter Amaya has as a child – where we learn there is something different about her Vasily’s reaction to her is also mysterious since he seems to know than expected about Amaya Being a short introduction the book doesn’t go into elaborate detail but it gives the reader enough to piue interest I definitely recommend it because I do think much is coming and this will be an exciting series Following Miss Cheryl to the bottom level to begin her new job Amaya was led through the Vampire Vectum a human blood source to feed vampires She was told she could earn money in the future if she chose to move upstairs – but she wasn’t sure what that meant The whole reason for needing this job was that Miss Cheryl’s brother – her disgusting landlord – raised the rent on her parents’ apartment right after they had left on vacation Amaya who lived with them did not have the extra money to pay and refused to bother her already generous parents by asking them for money especially since they had already paid ahead a year’s rent She knew her parents would have dropped everything and come home if they knew so she took this job to pay the increased rentMiss Cheryl dragged Amaya into the changing room makeup room and outfit room to find something to focus on her most alluring ualities Amaya’s old waitressing job was starting to look better to her with each step of this process But Miss Cheryl explained that the dress up and role play attracts the vampires They can get blood anywhere but the added attraction here increased business and brought in much moneyThe vampire Vasily is her first customer He asks her very strange uestions – he seems to know who she is He leads her upstairs despite her protest telling her he can take her where he chooses But she tells him again she doesn’t want to go upstairs He agreed but told her he wants her exclusively and will pay for her time permanently She is to not allow any other vampire to drink from her And he told her that he would be bringing friends who would want to meet herAs Amaya sits in a window seat waiting to see if she can go home yet another vampire approaches His eyes show menace and he roughly grabs her arm and pulls her to her feet He wants her and wants the “extra” whatever that is When she refuses he throws her over his shoulder and drops her onto a bed Throwing money on the bureau he tells her to strip; and when she refuses he decides to make it rough and take her anyway She screams scratches his face and he slaps her hard How will she escape from this danger? He is so much stronger than she and his red eyes show his fury I was drawn in by this exciting series There is an air of mystery as we learn of a strange unexplained encounter Amaya has as a child – where we realize there is something different about her Vasily’s reaction to her is also mysterious since he seems to know than expected about Amaya and is very protective I definitely recommend this exciting adventure Just seems to touch the surface I feel like this book just plays with the edge of being a great novel The author starts the world building right away I’m truly expecting a well developed world and a deep understanding of the creaturescharacters introduced I’m not sure what happened but it seems like I barely got to know anyone other than Amaya I’m not even sure why she likes anyone in the book other than Jules Even then Jules seemed to have a minor roleReally I think the book was too thin If the author had gone back and added substance to the novel I think she could have stayed true to the story line but developed the characters thoroughly It would have made the interpersonal relationships believable As it is I couldn’t get how she went from hating someone in one chapter to friendly in the next without even an interaction Or how she goes from meeting perfect strangers to allowing them to kiss on her like there’s been a romantic build up when she’s only seems to see them in passing All unnatural in my opinionI was also expecting a reverse harem This isn’t one at all It ends in a cliffhanger which I don’t like especially for a first book With the small size of the book she could have spent time finishing it off Very little was resolved and the uest was too easyWHAT I LIKE As I mentioned it has a great start to the world building could use development on both realms The fae realm reminds me a bit of Xanth Piers Anthony without all the puns and True Blood without all the gore violence I love the idea of shifters vampires and warlocks I’m not a fan of the fae but interested in how the species interact nonethelessI also love a Black heroine She gives a perspective on the world that I imagine a lot of non Black individuals don’t see or consciously acknowledge but is very real to Blacks She’s relatable The author does a decent job of touching on racial subjects without sugar coating it but also not turning the focus of the book into a Black versus them journeyI’m on the fence about starting the next book in the series This book had potential but it seemed to lack full development I uestion if the next book will lead me to the same I definitely don’t want a cliffhanger when little has happened I’ll think about it and maybe start something different in the meantime Amaya is a fiercely independent young woman has found herself out of a job and the rent to her family home suddenly spikes in her parents absence To avoid bothering her parents and maintaining her independence she takes a job at the Vectum Amaya is somewhat naive and innocent so she was not prepared for what the vectum offered But she meets s mysterious vampire Vasily who takes her by surprise by being her protector with a calm that comforts her but terrifies her at the same time Vasily offers her a job at his estate but as naive as she is she’s slowly beginning to realize nothing is what it seemsAmaya meets four warlocks who live on the estate with Vasily She feels a strong attraction to Vasily but strangely enough she slowly begins to feel the same about the four handsome warlocks Strange as it is though she feels compelled to explore those feelings but so with Vasily The closer she gets to him though the uestions she has and she’s puzzled by the fact that these five men keep telling her she’s special with special powers It’s finally revealed that these sexy men are not of this world and Amaya may be a conduit to getting them back home The uestion is where is homeThrough a series of unexplained events some of which were uite frightening Amaya is sold on the idea of another world and she agrees to help to get Vasily back to what is called the Fae world She’s taken on an unexpected adventure with mystery danger and unexplained phenomena at every turn Leaving the Fae world to return home also proves to be somewhat of a challenge and once she returns there are a million unanswered uestions and Vasily doesn’t seem to be able to give her answer but her attraction grows stronger and boy does she exploreSexy dangerous mysterious scary and just out of this world experiences leaves Amaya confused and needing answers Will she find her answers and how will she navigate this strong attraction to these five sexy hunky men?Another awesome story by Chloe Adler Absolutely fantastic read and if your a fan of Chloe Adler then you know what I’m talking about Amaya needed a job so she started at the Vectum that’s where humans give blood to vampires she started at the bottom and is given the option to go upstairs but Amaya is happy at the bottom Amaya gets all dressed up and is chosen by Vasily Vasily knows about Amaya than he is letting on and Vasily asks Amaya to just deal with him and she agrees While Amaya is sitting around another vampire comes in and chooses her for than just blood but Amaya says no the vampire gets angry and forces Amaya on the bed then she starts screaming and Vasily comes in just in time to save her Wow what a start to the series and I highly recommend this book I have read everything produced about Distant Edge so far So simply by being about one of my favorite places this had my attention I love getting the opportunity to see Distant Edge from the human vantage point We’ve seen the Signum and now we get to see what life is like without a wealth of magical powers There are so many wonderful little hints about what’s going on sprinkled throughout this book But for every hint and answer that’s uncovered three uestions spring up to take its place We have answers but there are still uestions left unknown so I’m guessing that we will be revisiting Amaya Vasily the warlocks Candy Sabin Jules and all the rest again in the futureI received a complimentary copy of this book This is my first time reading this author and I have to say she has uite a way of expressing herself The prose is smooth and the dialogue is realistic and not juvenile The FMC Amaya is feisty and learns to become empowered as the story progresses She's in a bad way in the beginning down on her luck but learns to push through and fight I love them men but Bodhi is my favorite so far Sorry Vasily Lol There is a twist to the story and Amaya's character development and I loved it So uniue and a different take Chloe also knows how to write those sexy times Woowee Even the one that was tame was still very passionate and steamy Highly recommendI received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review
