A domina’s only purpose in life was to birth vampire children for the Quiet King. Any human woman with the domina gene spent their lives in the castle under strict rules and the guards’ watchful eyes. Brie has been a domina for two years. After witnessing the slaughter of babies, she plans to escape and seeks help from Samuel, a vampire known for aiding many out of slavery.

However, Samuel has only one policy. He won’t help dominas escape the king. The penalty is too high and their blood triggers powers in him that he doesn’t want released. So Brie is forced to lie about being a domina and Samuel is lured in by her blood. Something emerges within them that they can’t deny, overwhelming their every cell and igniting an all-consuming hunger that neither can flee.

“Please don’t stop.” I moaned. Need rocked within me. He sucked hard. My blood heated and soared to him. Glints of shimmering red flickered, popped around us, and danced on my skin. I flinched and panicked.

Relax, Brie, Samuel whispered in my mind. It’s the blood magic moving through our essence and binding us together. His voice hummed inside me like a slowly strummed guitar, so different from his actual voice, or even the king’s mental voice. I rubbed my thighs together as my desire for him exploded into a great hunger. I was dizzy with it. I could think of nothing else but getting his tongue, fingers, and cock inside of me. Hot. I feel so hot. I wanted him to touch me, just a little more. Just one bite, I’d told him. How stupid he must’ve thought I was, knowing that one bite was all it took to capture me into desire. Now I understood the poor human women who sat on the corner addicted to the feel of fangs inside them, begging for just one more bite.

It’s almost over, he mentally said.

“And what if I want you to do more?” I asked, barely recognizing my voice.

I won’t. You’re drunk from my bite. He ran his hand through my hair. His fingers traveled from my roots to their ends, then returned to my scalp, taking a new path through my tresses. I could fall in love with you and have no regrets. His voice triggered more desire. It coursed through my veins. My nipples blazed with longing for his tongue. My sensitive folds throbbed. My clitoris ached.

“Touch me.” The words fled my lips. His fangs retracted, leaving my neck. I peered at him with hooded eyes and slurred, “Make love to me.”

“I want you so bad. You’ll never understand how much.” His gold eyes brightened, illuminating the area around him. He licked his lips. “But that’s the bite talking right now, not you. I won’t make love to you until you’re in your right mind.”

I loved the world that Kenya Wright created. A world where obviously vampires ruled. And in this world, there were special human woman who were meant only to have babies for the Vampire King. Brie is one of these women, but now she plans to escape and she only has help of an sort of rouge vampire Samuel. But this vampire also has a secret that will leave Brie very surprised.

Now while I loved this world created by the author, I also felt lost throughout parts of the story. There was very little to no background given about the vampire king or this world in it came to be? Were they in a alternate reality? Or maybe the future? I would have like a little more information.

Also I felt the relationship between Brie and Samuel was rushed through and I really didn't get the feel of them. There was no building up to it..they literally went from disliking each other to an almost insta-love.

So loved...loved the base element of this story. There were just too little information given, so that took some of the excitement away for me. There were a lot of things I felt that were key and left out, but I'm sure we will learn more in the books to I'm looking forward to reading more in this series.

**This is a graphic book, so it may not appeal to some readers. If you have a weak stomach or easily offended, then you probably shouldn't pick this one up. BUT, if you like a lil gore with your reads, they Escape is perfect!
