Vermilion Lies (The Order of the Senary, #3)Vermilion Lies by L.D. Rose
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

A great read about trust. Cindel has run from one bad situation into another since she fled from her sire several years ago. Whilst on a yacht serving another master, the vampires around her are destroyed and she is taken hostage by a vampire hybrid. Distrusting her, he imprisons her for a while. She slowly earns his trust but events unfold and tensions rise. Can you ever escape your past?
A great read. Well developed plot with twists and turns Well developed characters like Dax trying to do the right thing despite his feelings or Cindy standing up for herself but still vulnerable underneath. Great cats of supporting characters like the fun and lovable Kayne or the caring brother Blaze. The only issue I would raise is that it felt as if there were too many bad sire characters to keep track of which could have been reduced.
I loved the visual detail throughout the novel with the and the sense of devastation with its broken buildings and seas of dust emotive for what had been lost. Or the nature in the cold air and the trees and the ocean with its beach wild and untamed and for a sense of freedom for Cindel
for a sense of freedom Or with the battle scenes on the yacht with the sights and sounds so vivd it was as if you’re actually there. .
A great example of world building with the fantasy creatures of vampires that coexist in our world and have their own rules and laws and societies. I also liked the use of vampires having emotions in Cindy which added something new to the figure of the vampire, something not usually done in fantasy novels. Overall, a great read and I would give it four stars.
