Just One Bite (Blood Prince #2) by Jennifer Blackstream

OneBiteIrina is determined to continue her fight for freedom. Freedom for her from her evil sorceress stepmother, and freedom for every faction in the kingdom of Dacia. Unfortunately, her stepmother isn’t about to let that happen and she’s got a poisoned apple and a glass coffin with Irina’s name on them…

Kirill is a vampire prince determined to be a vampire king. Unfortunately, his vampiric father has no intentions of vacating the throne anytime soon and the prophecy Kirill found hinting at a “Great New Kingdom” is proving tricky to translate. It doesn’t help that the beautiful woman he found unconscious in the woods seems determined to undermine his authority at every turn. He’d kill her himself if she didn’t have the strangest gift for soothing his bloodthirsty spirit.

Even an undead mastermind can’t foresee everything. Seven dwarves. A poison apple. A glass coffin. It’s a strange and terrifying world when events can take a turn for the better or worse with just…One Bite.

So continues my obsession with twisted fairy tales. The Blood Prince series is definitely feeding that obsession. 😉

One Bite is a very witty title when you think about it. This twisted take on Snow White has the apple, the wicked step mother, the woodsman and the dwarves, but the real question is does the ‘one bite’ refer to the poisoned apple or the Vampire prince?

Kirill plots while Irina negotiates.  They both have secrets that they are keeping for very different reasons. Even thought the story is familiar, there is still a fair amount of mystery. After all, this tale is twisted. 😉

I’m loving the interesting turns in this series that not only take the characters in totally unexpected directions but hint at things to come. The women in these ‘tales’ are just as strong as the men destined to save them. The men are beginning to realize that they are a much stronger force working together instead of against one another. I can’t wait to see what happens next.

Speaking of next, Golden Stair is our next twisted tale in The Blood Prince series. Long hair, a tower…hmmm??
