Master Tuscano (Masters of the Consulate Book 2) by Sylvia Black – Review by Helen Woodhull Parsons

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Forbidden Love, bad choices and second chances!
Master Tuscano is just as good as Master Descallia if not better.
In this book the Syndicate, witches, shifters, rogue vampires and Consulate seem to all have their own agendas. These additional characters add to the story very well.

Delilah ran off with the witches because she was denied the life with Christian that she wanted by the Consulate. She seeks refuge with the witches who treat her kind, even though they have a long-standing vendetta with the vampires.
When Christian found her after her abduction, he seeks revenge. He doesn’t realize she wants her own revenge. That is, until she keeps disobeying his direct orders and darn the consequences! (Even though she enjoys the consequences very much 😉)

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

First you have a brave Heroin with attitude to boot! Lucianna jumps in feet first to try and find the missing women and finds herself attached to a Vampire Overlord in the process.
Salvatore has his work cut out for him with Lucianna and the desire to protect and save her, if even from herself. He is used to his word being obeyed without hesitation, until her.
There definitely is a plot twist that I didn’t see coming and hopefully it surprises you as well. I have read many Vampire Novels and Sylvia has made the Masters of the Consulate a series I do not want to miss a single Novel from!
Thank you, Sylvia, for the good read and keep this series going! Can’t wait to read what comes next.

Master Tuscano (Masters of the Consulate Book 2) by Sylvia Black – Review by Krista Vaughan

Sylvia Black brings Master Toscano in as the hero of this book. A vampire of the Consulate in love with a human. When Delilah is left dead at his feet he takes her to to the underworld to be with him. The problem being…he didn’t get permission from the Consulate first, and Delilah has never been a fan of the underworld. Right from the start this book is filled with conflict, passion, and action. A gripping novel from start to finish following a human and a vampire in love trying to fight for their right to be together. There is really no one as formidable as a vampire in love.

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

A dark vampire mafia romance. What’s not to love about that sentence?

Master Tuscano should really be read after book 1, Master Descalia, for the greatest understanding as Tuscano has continuation of the “us v them” storyline from book 1. Semi-spoiler: That storyline will continue in book 3 too.

Here we get to explore the romance and mating of Christian Tuscano and Delilah, who we were introduced to in book 1. Christian and Delilah yearn for one another despite the consulate not approving of their relationship.

I enjoyed Christian and Delilah as a couple and them coming together despite outward forces trying to keep them apart. I like how the author switches the first person POV between Christian and Delilah because it gives us more insight as to what they’re each thinking and why they’re doing things. Delilah is a spitfire who isn’t going to just sit down and let the men deal with the issues they’re facing, yet she can also be submissive to Christian, sometimes.

It was interesting to see where Luciana and Salvatore were in their relationship now and how that continued to grow. Also, we’re reading about it from two other character’s perspectives, so it’s a fun turn-about. I still love Embry and the levity she brings to even the most serious of situations. Also, who doesn’t love a female who’s confident enough in herself to basically waitress and walk around a club topless and flaunting her nipple piercings? I hope to read more about Embry specifically.

While I overall enjoyed the story and the characters, I can only give this book a 3.5 rating as there were inconsistencies that kept pulling me out of reading to try and understand. Also, while this is a fantasy novel (hello paranormal beings) some pf the things that happen are outside the realm of possibilities, like transporting yourself half way around the world in a few seconds soon after becoming a vampire.

Trigger warnings: non sexual dub-con (dubious consent), rehashing of sexual assault and trafficking, anal sex, fictional death and gruesome beatings.

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

After the kidnapping and trafficking Delilah was saved from, she’s had to process the trauma and emotions that came with those experiences. At the same time, the conversation about what her and Christian are has been looming in the background for months. Wanting to be his mate as a human has come with more strings than what she thought was possible. Now, it’s her turn to take revenge on those that hurt her. Vampire or not, Delilah with use the resources she has to gain control back in her life.

I liked this sequel but I didn’t really enjoy it as much as I did the first. The author repeated a lot of the tropes she used in the first book so a lot of surprise I felt in the first book were not there when I encountered similar situations in this second book. Over all I think Delilah was a decent character but I feel like she was too impulsive which wound her up in more dangerous situations than if she worked through things with Christian or even talking with Lucianna and Embry. I was a little invested in the relationship but I really appreciated some of the choices Delilah made in the final few chapters. I’d be interested in seeing what happens in book three but not sure how quickly I would get to it.

Master Tuscano: Dark Vampire Romance (Masters of the Consulate Book 2)Master Tuscano: Dark Vampire Romance by Sylvia Black
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Master Christian Tuscano is the head of the Tuscano house and he has a score to settle, someone kidnapped the woman he wants to be his mate, Delilah and he wants answers as to the who and why, so he goes to the only source they currently have and treats them the same way they treated the woman he loves and it was shamefully and a way that nobody should ever be treated. As he gets the answers he wants, he thinks about Delilah and how her experience has changed her, how the light has gone from her eyes and she is just a muted version of her once bubbly self, however, when he returns home to find that she has gone and only left him a letter, he is enraged and worried that something else will happen to her.

Meanwhile, Delilah is making her way to find the person responsible for her kidnapping and degradation, however she wants to keep herself and her whereabouts from Christian so that she can do something by herself for once, but this plan backfires when despite her best efforts. He is going out of his mind with worry, so Christian has called in some help and found where Delilah is and just in the nick of time when someone else bursts in on the same scene to take the person she is meeting out and she has been caught in the crossfire, so just before her life ebbs away, permission is granted to turn her and allow her to become a vampire and not just be with one.

While the attack left Delilah in a precarious situation, the person they are all after manages to escape, so the hunt is on again, however, keeping Delilah safe and secure is harder than ever when she transitions and her new powers come to the fore and some shifters come after her and while a precarious deal is struck with the syndicate to take the bounty off of their heads in return for them being given the troublemaker once the Consulate have gleaned all the information they can out of them. The shifters are not the only ones after her though and new information comes to light which casts a shadow on everything Delilah knows and trusts involving a coven of witches, but will she be able to do what she needs to do and also be accepted by the rest of the Consulate, or will she have to leave everything she wants behind to protect the one she loves? Will Christian be able to help Delilah to overcome her trauma and teach her to accept her new life, or will one of the groups after them get to their target before they do? This is a rollercoaster ride of ups and downs with a romantic twist throughout, where secrets and lies abound to weave a twisted tapestry of truths which will hook you in from start to finish.

Master Tuscano: Dark Vampire Romance (Masters of the Consulate #2) by Sylvia Black

This is the second book I’ve read by Black. This is also the second book in the Master of the Consulate Series. It does need to be read in order, although it’s about a different master.

Christian is one of the Masters and he is getting his revenge for his mate. When she needs to be turned because she is injured he does it. They go through more than enough challenges. The quote I chose for Christian is: “Very well, but the next time you feel that need is so great, you are going to harness it, and I am going to teach you how to do exactly that.”

Delilah wasn’t exactly ready to become a vampire. Or so she thought. Once it happens she finds that people who took her in may be the reason she got kidnapped. The quote I chose for Delilah is: “Traitor shifters! The vampires have never done anything but respect your place in the universe, and for this, you repay us this way?”

Highly recommended for Dark Vampire lovers.

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Quick and interesting read with just a hint of spice. The three main women in the story were great characters to follow as they are all independent, self sufficient, and strong which I always love to see in book. I especially enjoyed the little bits I got to see of Embry. I did feel as though the plot was resolved too quickly and nicely. I think more could have been done as there was so much build up. The romance could have used more development as well, I would have loved to see more intimate moments between the two MCs. In general, enjoyable read, and will likely read again. Keeping my eyes open for the next in series to hopefully get more of Embry. I enjoyed her spunk!

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Sylvia Black is at it again with Master Tuscano(Masters of the Consulate book 2. Character development is well written especially since there are lots of characters to follow. Unfortunately, though I have a lot of love for Overmaster Salvatore Descallia, I don’t care for Christian Tuscano.
Christian is a hot head vampire who has a tendency to break the rules of the Consulate, especially with Delilah at his side. I didn’t care for her at 1st as well, but she started to grow on me as I continued to read. I’m hoping as the next books are released, that Delilah has enough impact on Christian to change my views on him.
Just because I don’t like Christian, doesn’t mean you won’t! Also doesn’t mean it takes away from how I felt about the novel in general.
I really enjoy the world Sylvia Black has created and I love forward to the next book releases for The Masters of the Consulate Series. If you like vampires, mystery, some suspense, with a little romance thrown in, these books are DEFINITELY FOR YOU!
