Hunger burns in Connie Bences’ soul—she craves the blood of her vampire lover, Rurik, but it’s not satisfying her needs anymore. It’s driving her insane. Desperate to find help, Rurik brings her to Rio De Janeiro, where Tane rules the vampire nation.
The back-stabbing vampire almost killed her and Rurik when they’d first met, then used them to obtain his crown. She would rather stake him, but the small drop of Nosferatu blood he’d forced her to drink in Budapest is blooming into a bond, one which ties her life to his. One he won’t hesitate to manipulate.
He admits to binding her so Rurik would have to remain at his side, but their timing couldn’t be any worse.
The betrayer finds himself betrayed. Tane’s rule is in upheaval and he’s forced to place his trust in two people who owe him no allegiance—her and Rurik. In the middle of a power struggle, Connie fights to keep her lover, but didn’t plan on Tane slipping into her heart.
I loved the first book in the Angler Series, Bait, and I was skeptical that the story even needed a second book. It seemed to me that Connie and Rurik had found true love and we didn’t need any more of this tale. However, I was clearly wrong. Bait is a fantastic book but Catch is awe-inspiring.
Ms. Nicholas has weaved of tale of intrigue, love, and betrayal that leaves Connie in a totally different place than she was at the end of the first book. Ms. Nicholas did the unthinking and took a character—Tane—who I adamantly disliked in the first book and made him hero-like in this book.
For me, there wasn’t enough Rurik. But could there ever be? Truly remarkable book, truly fantastic author. Now I’m just wondering if there will be a third? I hope so. I can’t wait to see where she could possibly take us now.
