Review: Masquerade by Felicity Heaton

Book 7 in Vampires Realm Series
Paperback, 180 pages
Published May 19th 2012 by Createspace 

Ten years have passed since Sophis and Vivek, two vampires of the Venia bloodline, came close to death at the hands of twin hunters Aleksis and Izabella Romanov. The events of that night turned Sophis and Vivek against each other, shattering their close friendship and driving them apart.

Now, on the eve of a centenary Creator Day masquerade and at a time when things between them are dangerously close to separating them forever, they uncover a small army of vampire hunters in Saint Petersburg, led by their nemeses, Aleksis and Izabella.

With the safety of the rulers of the seven pure vampire bloodlines in their hands and their chance for vengeance hanging in the balance, can Sophis and Vivek face their past and overcome their differences? Will they realise their true feelings for each other before it's too late or will the hunters finally claim their lives as their deadly plot to destroy the bloodlines unfolds?

This was a great book, I did not realize it was book 7 in the series when I started reading.  But it can be read on its own or read the series out of order.

Sophis is a very strong character, very much likeable.  Not your typical weaker heroine, this girl definitely kicks ass.  She is fighting her way up the chain of the "Guard" that protects the bloodline.  She is also fighting her feelings for Vivek for most of the book.
Vivek, comes off arrogant, but he is a great Guard and protector.  He is also fighting his feelings. 
Sophis and Vivek fight and argue so much, most people believe or think that they are just hiding their feelings from everyone else.
The were just a few parts of the book that were dull, but most of the book was action.  Like Sophis and Vivek fighting in the middle of the mansion reception room, the two of them going out to scout hunters.  But my favorite part is the actual Masquerade ball!
I look forward to reading the rest of this series and more books by Felicity Heaton.

I actually happened to have won this book and another of Felicity Heaton's, both signed!!
