Eyes of the Woods by Eden Fiece


I haven’t read a vampire novel in quite a while, so I appreciated the somewhat new take on an old stereotype.   The beginning felt a bit stilted to me; the dialogue was very formal.  But after the world building was mostly completed, everything seemed to smooth out and flow easily. Eden is only 15, I hope she keeps writing.  Since she can produce a fast paced, interesting twist on vampires at the age, I’m looking forward to seeing and reading what else she writes with more life and writing experiences. 

Favorite quote: (loc. 1749)

    “I don’t even have to look up anymore, Eris.  You’re a sky full of stars.”

Goodreads summary:

Eris Helgren knew her life was about to end. A daughter of the Priory--a generations-old family who protected their territories from nightwalkers--Eris was strong and independent. But on her birthday, her father would announce her betrothal. A year later, she would be forced to marry.

What Eris didn’t know was that the very beings she hunted were watching her, and that being tamed wasn’t what would kill her after all. 

In a land where the woods were forbidden and the laws meant life, Eris will have to make a decision that could bring peace between enemies, or war among friends.
