She is deadly, unpredictable, and holds a grudge. She still belongs to him.
Tricked and betrayed, April needs to face the facts. She is a monster.
Unlike the rest, she can at least pretend that she’s human. That’s until night falls. When the sun disappears, so does her humanity. Her other self doesn’t really care what April thinks.
Especially when she is thirsty.
Accepting Sebastian’s help feels like a slap in the face, but she has a plan. Get rid of the Council, then get rid of Sebastian. Only if he didn’t taste so good, things would’ve been much easier on her heart.
April is determined to succeed, and whoever stands in her way will see why she is the only human vampire in existence.
5 out of 5 (exceptional)
Rovesciamento: Overthrown is the second book in the New Blood Rising series, and we continue where we left off in book one. April has been changed into a 'monster', and she's not happy about it. Well, not during the daytime at least. At night, she has a personality change (literally) and becomes a killing machine. She is determined not to lose her humanity, but Marcus and Sebastian don't realise that. It is Andrei who makes them realise, and that to me, was one of the best scenes in the book!!!
This is an amazing read, full of intricacies and betrayal, with layer upon layer of story. Trust me, you will not be bored with this tale!! I loved seeing how April united with herself, and the reasons she was behaving the way she was. Sebastian is as hot as ever, and I loved how April ignored his over-protectiveness when it suited her. Marcus and Andrei continue to be the best supporting characters you could wish for.
As with most Maya Daniels books, this one ends on a cliffhanger. I really wish I didn't enjoy her writing as much as I do, because these cliffhangers kill me! With no editing or grammatical errors, this was another fantastic read from start to finish that I have no hesitation in recommending. I can't wait for book 3. I need to know if someone is dead or not!
