Review: The Key To Erebus by Emma V. Leech and Roisin O'Connor




Publication Date: October 9, 2012
Star Rating: 4 stars


Official Blurb:

The truth can kill you…

Taken as a small child, from a life where faeries, sirens and mythical creatures are real and treacherous, Jéhenne Corbeaux is totally unprepared when she returns to France to stay with her eccentric Grandmother.

Thrown headlong into a world she knows nothing about she seeks to learn the truth about herself, uncovering secrets more shocking than anything she could ever have imagined and finding that she is by no means powerless to protect the ones she loves.

Despite her Gran’s dire warnings, she is inexorably drawn to the dark and terrifying figure of Corvus, an ancient vampire and master of the Albinus family.

Jéhenne is about to find her answers and discover that, not only is Corvus far more dangerous than she could ever imagine but that he holds much more than the key to her heart…
 



This book really took me by surprise as I was introduced to a wide range of interesting characters: witches, vampires, shape shifters, ghouls, sirens, and so many more. It started off a little slow, but it began to pick up once Jehenne meets Corvus, the extremely surly vampire. There is such an intense connection between the witch and the vampire, and there is something about Jehenne that seriously angers Corvus, something about the way she looks.

I loved how you can't always tell who you can trust and who you can't trust. And there is quite a bit of mystery and intrigue that leaves you up all night because you can't put the book down.


All in all, I purchased book 2 in the series and I'm looking forward to finding out what happens to Corvus and Jehenne.
