Review: Rite of the Vampires Saga series (Books #1-3)

A young woman with a secret. A man with a death sentence. And a terrible fate that threatens to destroy them both ...

This post is a review of the Rite of the Vampires trilogy by Juliana Haygert. It contains three books: The Vampire Heir, The Witch Queen, and the Immortal Vow.

The Vampire Heir is the first novel in the Rite of the Vampire series. Thea, a young female witch on a secret mission, enters the secretive castle DuMoir. She knows it's suicide but she worked so hard to receive an invitation. The guests around her seem excited by the exclusive tour around the estate and the ending ball that concludes it. But Thea knows better: Tragedy strikes the castle and chaos arise. Desperate to survive, a brooding vampire prince rescues Thea and her companion. Drake has no idea why he feels attracted to Thea but he takes her under his protection. Meanwhile, Thea uses this opportunity to hide a dark secret. But could the growing feelings between Drake and Thea could destroy everything they hold dear ...

The Witch Queen is the second novel in the Rite of the Vampire series. Thea has returned to her coven after Drake had left her. But before Thea could change her mind and follow him, Princess Morda of the Silverblood found her. She is now back in her coven, viewed as a heroine for having succeeded in her suicide mission. But she doesn't feel like a heroine. Meanwhile, the enemy covens grow restless and since her coven is the only one without a Witch Queen, they're at a disadvantage. But Princess Morda has a plan for that. Despite her longing for Drake, who has his own problems to deal with back at castle DuMoir, things are becoming tense. A war is coming and Thea has a part to play.

The Immortal Vow is the third and final novel in the Rite of the Vampire series. Thea reunites with Drake as they find a new home to hide. Together, they are safe and happy but their comfort is only temporary. Drake and Thea know that to reach the peace they seek, to be really free of the past, they need to return and fight back. They need to put an end to this chaos and madness. They need to face the vampires, the witches, the werewolves--and they need to win. But since fleeing the last battle, Thea has been sick and it’s only getting worse. If they can’t find a way of saving Thea, she will die soon.

Rite World: Rite of the Vampire Saga is a stunning new adult fantasy featuring a dark and mysterious vampire prince and a strong witch heroine. Fans of A Shade of Vampire by Bella Forrest and All Souls Trilogy by Deborah Harkness will become addicted to this series! It was a very entertaining, captivating and sexy plot. Thea is a courageous witch who enters the enemy's lair, Castle DuMoir, to investigate the missing humans. Little does she know that she and the other guests are the main entree on the menu. With a stroke of luck, she survives the horror with the protection of a vampire prince whom she loathes but needs to rely on for the sake of her secret mission. However, the two grow closer as clues reveal that their leaders have not been honest and seek power for their own gain. Drake and Thea appear as polar opposites, but their growing feelings for one another are the key to fulfilling a prophecy that will unite all supernaturals.

Stay tuned for the spin-off series, Rite World: Rite of the Warlock!
