Blurb

I may be the villain of the story, but at least I get a leading role.
Evil is a term thrown around history and literature as if it's something so easily definable. A concept to fight against.
Evil doesn’t exist.
Neither does ‘good.’
Vampires do, though.
I just happen to be one.
I’ve cruised through the centuries managing to avoid all the wars, supernatural and human, but still going to all the best parties.
I would say I avoided bloodshed, but it’s kind of part of the whole ‘vampire’ thing.
I’ve lived on the fringes of a society that considered cruelty and sadism favorable character traits for almost five hundred years. Now I'm in the middle of a war that might just put my nonbeating heart in a lot of danger.
Battles, I can handle.
The impossible attraction between me and the vampire slayer, not to mention the penetrating gaze of the king of our race, on the other hand?
I might not get out undead.










Fatal Harmony is the first book in The Vein Chronicles series by Anne Malcom. I have never read anything else by this author, and what a tragedy that is! I was completely blown away by this amazing story! 


Isla’s upbringing and basically her entire story broke my heart. She has endured so much in her lifetime, and I just want her to be happy. There is social unrest amongst the members of the supernatural community, and they are throwing a wrench in her aforementioned happiness by constantly trying to kill her and those she cares about. Will they succeed? 


I don’t even know where to start! I love vampire stories, and I have read plenty. This book managed to be unique to anything else I have read before, and that is no easy feat. 


The world building in this book was one of my favorite things about it. I loved the vampire mythology the author came up with. These vampires aren’t your classic vamps that sleep in coffins, and they definitely don’t sparkle. Vampires are born, not made, and they can’t survive on bunny blood. Most of the vampires in this world are cold, ruthless killers. Humans are nothing more than cattle to them. The undead aren’t the only supernatural creatures in this story. Werewolves, demons, and witches are also present.


 The absolute best thing about this story has to the heroine. Honestly, I didn’t know if I was going to like Isla, because she can be cold and thoughtless at times. I was so happy to be wrong. She isn’t a perfect angel, but who is really? Isla can be arrogant and insensitive, but also kind, strong, hilarious, loyal, and selfless. The woman dresses to the nines, kicks ass, saves innocent people, and always does what she thinks is right regardless of how much of an outcast that makes her. Her friends are just as complex and endearing as she is, and her love interests, the slayer, Thorne, and the vampire king, Emrick, are both sexy alpha males that would make any woman swoon. 


Overall, Fatal Harmony is a phenomenal read! The story is captivating, unique, and action packed! I wish that the sex scenes were a little more detailed, but other than that the only thing that I didn’t like was that it ended. It is expertly written, well-paced, and full of humor. The characters are multidimensional and the world building is top notch! If you like paranormal romance or urban fantasy, this is one you don’t want to miss!
