My Rating: 5 out of 5 stars
I was given this book by the author in exchange for an honest review.
Vampire Code by E. C. Adams is about a young and talented lawyer,
Aurora, who is approached by Sebastian Fiscard, a vampire in the most
prestigious vampire families, to help him defend his brother in court.
His brother is being tried for murder because the vampire that he turned
(his wife) killed another woman in cold blood. Aurora learns that the
Vampire Code is set up very differently than the human legal system, so
she navigates through this new territory as well as fights off her
growing feelings for Sebastian. She is also being pursued by the
Resistance, who wants to see her dead for showing her face in vampire
court. Can Aurora survive in this brave new world?
I loved this
book. LOVED. I don't say that lightly. And I'm even more happy that this
is a talented new writer. There has been a ton of speculation as to
where this book lies-- it's either New Adult or Adult (I think it's the
latter), but honestly, it doesn't really matter. I think young adult
readers as well as adult readers will gravitate towards this book
because the characters are great (I think I have my first ever vampire
crush, and I've read a lot of vampire books), the pacing spot on, and
the world building with the Vampire Code just fascinating. There are
also a lot of great plot twists that I won't tell you about so that you
can discover them on your own.
My one small issue (and this is
really just a personal preference that did not change the rating) is
with the medical stuff later in the book. The details don't really make
sense to me, but I was okay with glossing over that (which I usually am
not okay with!) to get back to the story at hand.
Overall, one of
the best indie reads I've gotten my hands on this year. I will be
closely following E.C. Adams' career from here out.
