So having already read the prequel novella I was excited to dive into Vampires of Moscow hoping for more magical mayhem and sass from Saskia. This book definitely delivered and so much more.
Saskia de la Cruz is a Verity Witch – her only magic being that she can tell the truth from a lie.
As an investigative reporter for The Blood Web Chronicle, the biggest news outlet on the paranormal dark Blood Web, Saskia spends her days cracking twisted para cases hoping that someday, some case, will bring her closer to finding her missing sister.
In snowy Moscow drained corpses of illegal workers have begun to turn up, with hundreds more reported missing. When Saskia is sent on assignment to investigate an oligarch Vampire crime ring that might be behind the deaths, she plans to get in out of the city’s frozen grasp quickly…preferably with her neck intact.
But beautiful ballet dancer Konstantin Volkov and his wildcard brother Lukka complicate things. The vampire brothers have their own reasons for solving the string of murders, reasons that conflict with Saskia’s mission. Soon, Saskia finds herself enmeshed in the city’s glittering web of crime, passion, and violence, where truths and lies are one and the same.
This book is set a couple of years after Sirens. Saskia is a fully fledged reporter for the blood web chronicle and is sent to snowy Moscow to investigate a pair of vampire brothers.
Once again the descriptions are beautifully written and pull you into the story. You really feel the coldness of Moscow and the smells of the food.
Saskia is a bold reporter and isn’t afraid to put herself in harms way to get her story. She is a fierce and passionate person. She throws herself into the world of the vampire Volkovs brothers with the intention to get to the bottom of the mystery surrounding them.
The Volkovs brothers are the stuff of nightmares and wild fantasies at the same time. They are a dreamy pair but deadly.
This is a fast paced story, with steamy sex scenes and rude remarks. I love all the sass. I’m so glad I have book 2 ready to go.
