Blog Tour {Review & Giveaway} -- The Scionless House (The Scion Legacy, #.5) by Nazarea Andrews

THE SCIONLESS HOUSE (The Scion Legacy, #.5) 


Twelve Houses. Twelve vampire lines. We ruled from the shadows, and manipulated the world, and when humans came too close to destruction, we intervened.
Every House has a Scion. A fragile, easily broken human that stood shoulder to shoulder with the house Princes and Princesses.
Except for ours. The Ravens, House Cantelie.
We've been without a Scion for almost fifteen years.
But that will change...and her life will be mine to protect.

My Review

I hadn't read a book featuring vampires for quite some time, as a conscious choice. I thought that everything was already said, and wasn't really able to find anything original in many stories.

But this short story made me re-evaluate!
A whole world was made by the author, with different houses and ranks of vampires. All this was explained right at the beginning, so it was fairly easy for me to keep up with who was who and the way they interacted with each other!

The story was narrated by Octavian, a Blood Prince, who is sent on a mission to retrieve a mysterious person. It is short, but gives the readers a complete feeling of the stories and the main heroes involved. IT still left me with wanting to know more about this world, though!

Seeing as I enjoyed so much this short story, I can only wait for the actual first book in the series to be released, in order for me to get to know the characters and their way of life, more!

All in all, 5 stars to an awesome prequel!

THE BLOOD SCION Synopsis (The Scion Legacy, #1)

I was just a reporter, trying to stay ahead of my student loans. I knew the rules, and I followed them.
I thought I knew how the world worked—humans lived their petty little lives in the safety of the sun. We loved and fought and—when the sun sank—we scurried behind our walls and lived in fear. That is when the monsters came out to play.
And even in the safety of the sun, we knew who ruled us.
The Houses. And their Scions.
Everyone knows the great Houses and their Scions—they are feared and loved and hated and envied. They are the gods who walk the shadows and rule all of our lives. They are salvation and death.
And somehow, I am one of them.

  1. Seems like an interesting read.. Even i haven't read any stories on Vampire for the same reason that you said :-)

    1. This was a great read, indeed, even if short! It's not like the usual vampire stuff, it is a whole thought-out world with Houses and hierarchies! I totally recommend it! :)
