Vampire royals strategise at 2 a.m.Last week, I inherited every cent of the multi-billion-dollar Le Spyre estate.But tequila is far easier to swallow than the coincidence of my beloved grandmother's death.I'm over this supernatural game, yet walking away from Kyros isn't simple with the damn mate thing on the cards.The Indebted need my help. My grandmother deserves justice. And, uhm, the third blood exchange did something to me.It's official. I'm done playing by paranormal rules. I'm making my own--and playing to win. Because if I enter Ingenium on my terms, there's no turning back.Winning is the only option.

It's funny, it's hot, it's frustrating, its girl power, it'll make you smile and maybe throw your kindle at the wall at the end. Basil is just my girl . So quirky and original, she has lady balls and is funny to boot. ”Yello” Yup I answer the phone the same way. Ergo I am basically Basilia Le Spyre in real life. Right?

So quirky and original, she has lady balls and is funny to boot. ”Yello” Yup I answer the phone the same way. Ergo I am basically Basilia Le Spyre in real life. Right? Maybe just a few billion and a butler short of becoming her. She is now my role model - along side Maggie Smith in Downtown Abbey of course. Her grandmother was Maggie Smith in my head.This whole book hinges on the sexual tension between Basil and Kyros, book 1 was off the charts and and book 2 doesn’t disappoint either. I’m so happy that she is sticking to her guns and doesn’t fly right into his arms after all her posturing in book 1. ”Kyros was right; most of the allure had to be the suspense of not knowing how good—or terrible—sex between us would be.” It really kicked off about 70% for me. At that point it became ”sorry family, mommy is busy right now”.It took me a long time to read that last 30% because I kept going back over the pages to read them again! I didn’t want to move on. The scene at the birthday party was possibly the best thing I’ve ever read. If you haven’t started this series then you’re missing out. I can’t rave enough. And sorry but it’s not RH for the dedicated RHRers who might be reading this. I don’t even wish it was. It’s perfect. Apart from that cover, does anyone else feel like Kyros in that picture is inadequate? Like he’s not even wearing a suit and looks way to youngMuch betterI'm dying for the next one. I have not stopped thinking about this series and recommending it to friends since I finished it. Bring on some more THRALLS!”Air kisses, babe”

I didn't enjoy the whole ping pong feeling thing they had going.I just didn't like her, they were a number of things she did that aggravated me but I read this book a couple of days ago and quickly put it out of my mind. The blurb of the third one says she's going to be a total badass. Ha! Not interested.

    4.5. Wow. That was a massively intense and angsty ride.I continue to be blown away by this series. It is massively compelling and I can't remember the last time I felt so emotionally invested in the main characters.However, I don't think I enjoyed this one as much as the first, mainly because of all of the angst and secrets. Don't get me wrong, I think the series is exceptional, but, as I'm so emotionally invested, it wasn't the most enjoyable read in several places and I feel a bit like I have 4.5. Wow. That was a massively intense and angsty ride.I continue to be blown away by this series. It is massively compelling and I can't remember the last time I felt so emotionally invested in the main characters.However, I don't think I enjoyed this one as much as the first, mainly because of all of the angst and secrets. Don't get me wrong, I think the series is exceptional, but, as I'm so emotionally invested, it wasn't the most enjoyable read in several places and I feel a bit like I have whiplash from all of the backwards and forwards that happens.Without being too spoilery, Basi founds out a pretty big whopper of a secret Kyros has been keeping, and it is a bit of a game changer for her. She then finds out a massive revelation about her Grandmother that gives her an endgame, one that pitches her against Kyros. But she needs him for her endgame to happen, and they are still connected through the blood bond. She both loathes him and desperately wants him, completely unable to tell what is the blood bond and what is her natural attraction and affection for him.I both had massive admiration and massive frustration for Basi in this. On the one hand, she is a fantastic character, with a core of steel, tonnes of intelligence and not afraid to wield her femininity as weapon, rather than being the usual physically kick ass characters you see in this genre. However, she is also pretty pigheaded and, in many ways, quite cruel. I understand why she treats Kyros in the way she does, and in many ways I don't blame her, but I felt really sorry for him throughout a lot of this.At the end of the day, Kyros is a vampire, not a human. One if my favourite things about these books is the way Kyros isn't too humanised. He is an apex predator who has to fight for control almost constantly. He has also spent his whole life enslaved to a game that, if he looses, his whole family will be slaughtered. A family who clearly love each other and are close. He even has a niece, for goodness sakes. All of the shitty things he's done have been through direct orders from his father, or to try and win the game and save his family. While that doesn't excuse his behaviour, I do believe it grants him some empathy and understanding from Basi, which is sorely lacking here. But then, the whole vampire system and hierarchy and the Indebted is pretty messed up too and poor Basi didn't ask for any of this, so I also don't really blame her for what she's doing either.So basically, no-one is the good guy or the bad guy here (apart from some of the rival vampire clan, they're pretty awful) and this book made me feel like my heart took a beating.I had hope right at the very end that what happened at the end of the book would help settle things between Basi and Kyros, but now he's the one being a pigheaded idiot (although Basi's actions were pretty stupid and short sighted and naieve), so it looks like the angst will continue!Seriously though, if you liked the first book this is equally excellent, just far more of a rollarcoaster and more painful to read. I am so utterly desperate for the next book right now!

    "You’re playing my game now." Well dang... I was worried about how the story ended in the first book thinking that Basil might end up being backed into a corner- but hot damn, girl came out swinging! I think Basil is one hell of a character, and I am rooting for her- plus I adore her friendship with Tommy. Also regarding the romance (view spoiler)[ I'm glad we got some smexy time in this book, but ill be honest... I'd rather see her win than be with Kyros atm- sue me. Maybe he will grow on "You’re playing my game now." Well dang...

    I hated this book. Read it in one evening and wish I hadn’t. It got one star for some of the humor. Basil is a whiny b***h. When she finds out she’s been duped she forgives everyone else, siblings, indebted, she’s even nice to Gina who was going to kill her in the last book. She forgave the indebted and siblings for knowing she was being lied to but not the man she can literally feel his FEELINGS for her and who has gone above and beyond in how he knows to apologize and it doesn’t matter even I hated this book.

Vampires who are stronger, faster, and definitely smarter when it comes to subterfuge but she thinks shes going to go save her best friend instead of contacting Kyros who is 150 yrs old, I’m real sure her pampered ass has it all under control. It makes the character into a dumb bimbo and then when Kyros finally realizes she’s literally not worth it she wants to act hurt and like she has a reason to be upset. He didn’t kill your Gma, you ran away from home, you pushed your friend away, you made you choices so own up to them and move on. And the whole she is gunna win the game and no one will find out anything till she wants it to happen not believable at all. She wants to free all the indebted bc she is such a nice person yet she is okay with Kyros loosing his entire family if the game isn’t played how she wants it to be played. She’s weak, selfish, vain, and dumb. Seeing Kyros put her in her place and walk away at the end is how I’m gunna picture this series ending. Moral of the story, don’t be pathetic like Basil.

    The main character is so much different from what she was in the first book. I loved how her confidence soared in this one, and she gained a take-charge kick-ass attitude. Seems like she needed to be in her own environment to let badass rich girl Basi come out to play! She reminded of Batman in this book!

When Kelly said she was releasing a Vampire book, I already knew it would be unique, and of course, sexy, and I am not even a fan of vampires, but Kelly did get me to fall in love with dragons, so I knew it wouldn't be hard for her to get me to fall back in love with vampires too, which 5 Bloody Stars!Noooo!!

Sometimes I do want to smash their heads together until they want to kiss and make up and live happily ever after, but the other part of me is really loving this tension and how we are watching them grow feelings for each other instead of it all happening way too fast like many other stories. There was humor, hotness, wittiness, and pretty much everything else that makes a book amazing. I'm definitely happy that we got more of Kyros, and I will gladly take him from Basi if she doesn't want him. He showed his more sincere side in this and I felt all of his emotions as Basila was, and after the shocker that happened, I forgave him easily because I knew he didn't want to actually do it, and that he was caring for her more and more. I love his attitude and protectiveness towards her, and I also love how much he cares and loves his siblings too, even if they do annoy him all the time, but he always puts on a happy face for them. Basila did have many a times of hard-headedness, but she is young, she's had her life taken away, and now she needs to grow and become stronger without everyone monitoring her moves. She's smart and witty, and I always enjoy seeing her come up with new plans. After that ending though, she is officially a Bad A in my book now. I pretty much loved everything about this book, and it's sad the conclusion is near, but after that ending, I am highly anticipating it. This book is a great way to start the year off with a bang, and finally my first 5 stars of 2020!*ARC provided in exchange for honest review*

    In the sequel to Blood Trial, Basilla is fighting with her growing attraction to Kyros, being overwhelmed by the complexity of her new world, and the emotions of losing a close family member and inheriting a large estate. I loved this book from start to finish. The relationship between Basil and Kyros is really developed in this book.

    The ending needed some love for meWhen I first read this book the ending felt depressing and sad. After re-reading it. I changed from 3 star to 4. I still think the ending a bit depressing but the second time through somehow feels more hopeful. I am waiting for the next book and really hope the author doesn't disappoint and some good things start to happen.

It was engaging and I kept on reading because I wanted to find out what was going to happen next. Yet, I found myself getting angry and annoyed by the way the “romance” between Basi and Kyros is progressing/not progressing. Basi is also maddening as a personality but Gaaaaah! she can also be endearing. And even if this is all being told in her POV, I actually feel more for Kyros than her. 3 to 3.5 Stars I don’t know what to think or feel about this book. On the one hand, I couldn’t put it down.

    Better than the first! Read this book if you want vampires with backbone and a tough heroine thats probably going to have everyone by the balls at the end of the series (not a spoiler; just a guess because she's a secret badass). I think I rated book one 4 stars, so it would make sense that this one is higher. The first took a bit to get into and I found "the game" mechanics awkward. Round two was an improvement and the pacing was delightful. It keeps you turning pages from the very beginning. Better than the first!

The dynamic between the two main characters and the supporting is interesting. The families make me wish each group had their own trilogies. A few of the characters are fascinating. I know a few had issues with the ending, but it just wasn't that jarring to me. With the push and pull of the romantic subplot, it felt expected but in a good way. A++Can't wait for book 3!Disclosure: I received an ARC of this book from the author, but the review is my honest opinion.

But she still has much yet to experience. I wonder if it is true that “Basilia Le Spyre doesn’t need anyone”. Our eldest son, Kyros, certainly has proven that he can’t stand the heat. Hopefully, he gets some humble pie and softens that vampire heart of his.

I want to hate them both and root for them both and shake them until their teeth rattle. Ok enough about me and my emotions.... this book is so good.

Admittedly, this past year, that is what I've really been into. I have KF Breene's reader group set to always ping when she posts and one day a few months ago Kelly St Clare posted about this book she was releasing called Blood Trial. I read it and loved it. So much so, that immediately after I finished the first book, I stalked to find out when book two would be released and then I read her Darkest Drae series and I downloaded and am waiting to read her Tainted Accords series. Vampire Debt released this past Tuesday. What is it Friday? I don't even know anymore. I'm in that crazy writer place where I'm finishing a novel and writing my butt off. Even now, I should have started already, but sometimes you just have to blog, yeah know? Maybe you don't know WTF I'm talking about, but I'm sure you've read those books where you just need to tell people about it and it's the first thing you want to do when you wake up.Man oh man, the twists and turns this book has.This book/series has all the snark. It starts with Basil and Tommy, her female BFF. And the world they live in is not like ours, not at all. There are these zones, which was pretty interesting. I felt like maybe it was an alternate reality to ours, but then there was tons of fun pop-culture thrown into it.If you ever read my reviews, which I hope the F you do, then you know I don't spend a lot of time going over the plot. First, because book reports are boring A/F and second because I think when I read a review I always want to know how it made the reader feel.I felt like I never wanted it to end.I have not had that feeling in some time.  I could go back to book one and start all over again! Something about her characters and the way the entire story flowed just completely clicked with me. Oooh, Can you tell I'm excited? The steam is hot AF. Even when it's just a little dirty talk, it's good. That has to be because of the way she built these characters. The world-building is also amazing. The uniqueness of this series will completely draw you in. If you love paranormal like I do, then run, don't walk. Hurry into this amazing series. You won't be disappointed. The only thing you will be dreading is having to wait for the next one, but I'm right there with you tapping my fingers greedily in anticipation.

    Fan-tastic!I really like this 2nd book in the trilogy. Basillia keeps surviving despite the odds. She cracks me up & I cheer her on. I appreciate that she knows she can't beat them without joining them. My only complaint is the Tommy thing was too obvious. @ first it was unbelievable that Basi would leave her unprotected, then when you're informed she does have guards, that they wouldn't recognize her date. I fear they know too much now. Tommy's mind was vulnerable & easy to access. I Fan-tastic!I really like this 2nd book in the trilogy. Basillia keeps surviving despite the odds.

My only complaint is the Tommy thing was too obvious. @ first it was unbelievable that Basi would leave her unprotected, then when you're informed she does have guards, that they wouldn't recognize her date. I fear they know too much now. Tommy's mind was vulnerable & easy to access. I hated that she was given access to all the secret info, the secret office, the button, everything to bring Basi down before she can make a difference. It's unbelievable Basi would plan so carefully but practically give away her grandma's legacy & scheme like that, without some protections in place. Regardless, everything after that was amazing. Of course you know there's another book so her surviving was a given, but holy hell !, that she survived THAT was incredible. On her own! Without being saved by a vampire. Respect! That ending!I'm so glad she didn't let Kryos' attitude to crush her. Why would he even want a weak mate, anyway? He better wake up before he loses something amazing. She's got a will strong enough to resist him until he appreciates her truly. I hope. Can't wait for the rest & final book!

    This series took a dive fast. I really enjoyed the first book but this one was a mess. PROS- though it’s a long book it never feels that way. - liked the addition of King Julius. Kyros is supposed to be scary but we don’t really ever see it. King Julius on the other hand is very ruthless. He’s a good addition to the storyline. CONS- In the first book Basi was a fun, smart girl trying to make it in the civilian world. She was more relatable and likable. Now she is just vengeful, cold and acts This series took a dive fast.

CONS- In the first book Basi was a fun, smart girl trying to make it in the civilian world. She was more relatable and likable. Now she is just vengeful, cold and acts much older than her age. When she does joke around with Tommy their relationship seems more like an aunt and niece. - in the first book Basi is a 21 yr old who had trouble finding a job because she didn’t have any experience. 2-3 months later she is now running a billion dollar estate, has mastered reality, opens clubs on a whim, manages many staff and leads a coalition of anti-vampire humans. So over the top. My eyes hurt from rolling them so much. - Basi is convinced that she can outplay the vampires at their “board game”. The vampires have been playing this for 149 years but she is going to come in and take over in 2 years. - tired of the back and forth between Basi and Kyros. Kyros has feels horrible and has apologized. Basi states that she believes him but for some reason she is still mean and using him. Kyros should just move on. - Basi is able to obtain the loyalty of a hundred vamps because she is nice to them. These vamps have been working for Kyros for a hundred years so I doubt that would flip so easily. Doubt I’ll read the third book. This series took a dive fast so I’ve lost interest and it’s obvious how it will end.

    Woah!!!! Hello new favourite NON RH author !! [image error]So the story leaves off when our MC looses her grandmother meaning basi is now in charge. *****no spoilers***** the game continues and basi has to decide who she wants to be going into the future. I ADORE her thinking and her power to stand up to our hero who is straight up 150 yr old dominating alpha vamp. The tension between the couple is palpable and I was THERE for every second of it. The first 40-50 ish% was good but after about 70% Woah!!!! Hello new favourite NON RH author !!

Our MC still denies her love for our hero because she doesn’t believe that the true mate thing is real however the hormones and sexual tension is there 100%. I am KEEEN ASSSS for the next book! 5/5 ❤️

    Great series. I LOVED the first book.But... honestly this second book kinda bummed me out. Basically the events in the books were:(view spoiler)[ grandmothers funeral (sad), Kyros "betrayal" (saaaad, but duh I guessed that this was the case a mile way), then getting captured by the Triplets (fucking heartbreaking) (hide spoiler)] The ending was just way to sudden and left me with a bad taste in my mouth. Like ughh (view spoiler)[ scar on her neck, permeant ear damage, the other clan being so Great series. I LOVED the first book.But... honestly this second book kinda bummed me out.

Like ughh (view spoiler)[ scar on her neck, permeant ear damage, the other clan being so close to winning, and Kyros being a hug ass dick (hide spoiler)]Also, Basi is supposed to be super nice, but she is constantly pushing Kyros away when she knows that the king forced him into "betraying" her. She hardly got to spend any time with Kyros at all in this book and the way she treats him is mean. Disappointed.

    Bravo, bravo!!!! Yet again the author brings us through an amazing story that bobs and weaves all over the place leaving the reader wanting more! Basi goes through so very many things in this book, and I'm guessing it's only the beginning. She's starting to truly come into her own, but definitely not without a few hard licks along the way. Your heart will break for her and Kyros at times. I loved getting to know his family better in this book, and can't wait to see what's to come! The ebb and Bravo, bravo!!!!

    So much drama!I really like this series. I thought I was burned out on vampires, until this series. It's got drama and angst in spades. It's even got humor... when Basi wakes up, lol. As much as I wanted to see those two get together, I have to say that with so many lies and so much back and forth between them... it just seems like they are doomed. But that's kinda what makes this story work.The stakes of the game are set in business, which could totally happen! Especially if you add life and So much drama!I really like this series.

    Whew! As amazing as book 1 was, Vampire Debt was even better. I don't even know what to write because the plot was so intense every little thing could be a possible spoiler. There were so many twists and turns, so many truths followed by lies, it was a force to be reckoned with. Engaging from the very first sentence, these characters grow so much as we learn what motivates each of them. With an ending that will have me anxiously awaiting book 3, The Supernatural Battle Series is the best series Whew! As amazing as book 1 was, Vampire Debt was even better.

    I know that the year has just begun but this is legitimately the BEST book I have read all year. It was really really really (x100) hard to put down. And I loved it way more than the first book. Don't get me wrong, the first book was amazing too, but this one... Damn. The suspense and twists - MY GOD THE TWISTS - and the super hot heat (yum)... Kelly has outdone herself with this masterpiece. I need the last book STAT.
