Review: Prince of Power
Author: Elisabeth Staab
Publisher: Sourcebooks Casablanca
Genre: Paranormal Romance
Release: January 2013
Book 2 of the Chronicles of Yavn series by Elisabeth Staab is a very much needed new twist on what I like to think of as the Vampire Phenomenon. There are similarities and there are not to the traditional vampire stories we are used to and the differences are a welcome and creative change.
Prince of Power pretty much picks up right where King of Darkness left off. Tyra vampire soldier and sister to the King of Vampires is nearly killed in battle and when she wakes nearly two weeks later she finds herself face to face with her mortal enemy, a wizard who apparently has watched over her during her recovery, instead of killing her.
Anton, son of the Master Wizard and mortal enemy is completely in love with Tyra, originally sent to kidnap Tyra for his father. Anton realizes the chance of a lifetime is upon him one he has secretly wanted for as long as he can remember, to break free from the life he hates.
Tyra and Anton are drawn to each other but Tyra is weary, can she trust him, can she believe in him, he is after all the very thing she has spent her life fighting. When Tyra makes the decision to take Anton into the sanctuary of the vampire hide out, Tyra faces the harsh truth of just how unlikely it is to work out between her and Anton.
Soon the ultimate showdown is upon them and through it all Anton is faced with making the hardest decisions of his life, including leaving behind the one and only woman he’s ever dreamed of having.
I love this series and can’t wait for book 3.
