Chasing the Red Queen ↠ Donja Bellanger suffering after the death of her father finds herself in dire straits when her mom takes a new husband Forced not only to move to a strange city but to share a room with her glamorous new stepsister Makayla Hampton her life spirals out of control Makayla lures her from goth to glam straight into an exclusive club not only for wealthy elites but Immortal Descendants Do. This is a pacey paranormal action and adventure story with a number of aspects that I liked but also a few that I didn’t Donja Bellanger is an unhappy goth girl about to turn 18 and things are not going very well for her Her mother is remarrying and while her soon to be stepfather seems to be nice enough they’ll be moving far away from her childhood home to a new house in Sault Ste Marie She doesn’t want to leave her best friend and she’s not over her boyfriend cheating on her Her new step sister Makayla doesn’t show any signs of liking her and then she discovers they’ll be sharing a roomShe soon discovers she’s not so bad and shortly after moving to their new home Donja goes out with Makayla and her boyfriend to an upmarket club Sault Ste Marie has had some gruesome murders of young women recently and one of the investigators Torin Mancini knows about them than he is able to let on The moment he lays eyes on Donja he is drawn to her in a way that he hasn’t been in a long long timeThis is an interesting twist on the usual vampire mythology Iridescents are much like vampires with the need to feed on blood but they’re able to be out in daylight and things like garlic and silver don’t kill them The Iridescents from this area of North America also have a lust for the blood of the Chippewa people which brought in a nice ethnic diversity to the story Donja’s age bothered me a little bit but as the story unfolds and the history of Donja’s family becomes apparent I found it less disconcerting It also helped that Donja’s mother’s reaction to her behaviour was uite realisticDonja and Torin’s instalove didn’t work for me though I can suspend my disbelief around a couple getting together really uickly when there is a lot of meaningful interaction between the two of them Donja and Makayla’s interaction was meaningful in a shorter space of time than Donja’s was with Torin The Iridescents is a male dominated hierarchy and the women seem to be of no importance that to provide blood sex and offspring The story is filled with action epic battles and surprises The unravelling of the plot kept me engaged and reading The part I liked least was the romance but fortunately there was so much to keep me entertained Book received in exchange for an honest review SUMMARY ↠ MBJUK.CO.UK ✓ Karen Glista
