The strength of Sloane’s heart is about to be put to the ultimate test.
After the Eclipse – the night vampires began openly slaughtering human victims – everything changed. Out of fear, the government salvaged what remained of the human population and enclosed them in massive, security-laden cities called White Sectors, while marking the vampire infested territory as Red Sectors.
When seventeen-year-old Sloane McAllister’s twin brother disappears, she seems to be the only one who thinks he isn’t dead, and vows to stop at nothing to find him. Gathering her courage, she braves the Red Sector to search for clues to his whereabouts. By chance, she encounters Aden, a handsome, charismatic vampire with a hidden agenda. He turns Sloane against her will, and whisks her away to his underground city. Enemies quickly become friends as Sloane struggles against her attraction to Aden, and resists her growing loyalties to the creatures that ruined her life. But the vampires themselves are the least of her problems. The city is harboring a devastating secret, one that could change the tide of the war and threaten to destroy everything Sloane has come to believe in.
My rating 5/5
Thanks to Krystle Jones for provided me a copy of this awesome story!
One word: amazing! I devoured this book in just two days! What's better then to come across a book that made us live a lot of emotions! The author managed to create a fantastic, dark and mystical world. Boost with action from of wall to wall, mysterious, dark and endearing characters and a plot that will leave you breathless at the end of each chapter!
The Scarlet Dagger isn't the first book of the author Krystle Jones and she totally handles her art! I loved her writing style: trendy, easy to read and at the end of each chapter, I asked for more and I received it! Krystle Jones portrays our world, ravaged by a virus a few years earlier, in which transformed much of the population into vampires. Humans that haven't been infected have trained and form a ''militia'' to destroy those who were infected. This new world is divided into sectors for separate humans from vampires.
Sloane, the main character, is part of the ''militia''. She knows how to fight; she is intelligent and very strong girl. She's a natural beauty and I liked the fact that she's not childish even if she's young. She got values in the right place and will fight for those she loves and cares. She has one thing in mind: to find her missing brother who has disappeared into the vampire’s side a few years ago. Just with the summary of the book, the author had me hooked! I couldn't pass over this one! Kick-ass/Warrior girl, some sexy vampires: Oh my!
Aden is a dreamy/vampire/sexy/hotness boy and I really enjoy reading about him and his grin! Who would not fall under the fangs of Aden!?!?! Wonder.... Even if he turns Sloane into a vampire against her will, Aden's still an interesting character. I can't see the ''monster'' in him... really! Very protective of Sloane, we often misunderstood his true intentions. Enigmatic and attractive, Aden will likely become a very important character in the books to follow!
Can't wait to read the rest of this series and see how Sloane will manage what happens at the end of The Scarlet Dagger! Jeez, it's kind of love and hate ending for me!!! Krytle Jones's surely made of me a new slave to her Red Sector Chronicles!
