About this ebook

An enemies-to-lovers vampire romance by bestselling author S. B. Alexander

Hunters are coming out of the shadows.

There are new enemies on the horizon, and the war is growing larger every day.

For centuries, vampires have lived among humans in secret until one press conference threatens the livelihood of bloodsuckers worldwide, including my inhuman children. I dare my adversaries to come anywhere near them. But I can’t fight alone. I need my powerful vampire husband at my side.

But the Council of Elders is up in arms, ancient vampires, whose only course of action against this threat is to use Sam Mason as a scapegoat. Now Sam’s own kind is hunting him, forcing us to separate into two camps to keep our family safe.

To make matters worse, my deranged sister, Rianne, has thrown down the gauntlet. The only way to deal with her is fight to the death. I have no plans to die, but fate has a twisted sense of humor.

The Prodigies is book five in the continuing saga in this enemies-to-lovers paranormal romance featuring Sam & Layla. Their story is rife with action, suspense, snarky banter, an alpha hero, a slow-burn romance that’s sure to singe your e-reader and ends on a cliffhanger. This is an ongoing series that begins in The Hunted. For a better reading experience, the books should be read in order.

Poor Sam and Layla CANNOT catch a break! As always S.B. Alexander does an amazing job reminding us of previous books. From page one my heart was pounding and by the end of the book the cliff hanger made it pound even more. I absolutely love the uniqueness of this vampire story, it is unlike any I have read before. As I always say, I think Layla got a bad hand with family members! So many twists and turns. So good! I cannot wait for the next book!!

I love this series!! Each book gets better, I feel like I’m on a constant rollercoaster ride with lots of twists and turns, I am so freaking in love with these characters. Layla proving she is tough as nails once again, makes you wonder if she’s really completely human!! And Sam, the most powerful vampire out there is the sweetest, most wonderful man! They make an amazing couple!! Their relationship is constantly being put to the test, but nothing can tear them apart.

Full steam ahead even around the twists and turns. Another great piece of the Layla and Sam saga. There is so much action, information and steam in this one. I can’t give spoilers so I will stop. I can’t wait until April for the next book!!!!
