Congrats to Juliette Cross on the release of THE RED LILY, book 2 in the Vampire Blood series! This is a series of fairy tale retellings set in a world where the vampire monarchy reigns, with book 2 showing us Red Riding Hood like you’ve never seen her before.
The Black Lily resistance needs a larger army if they are to defeat the vampire monarchy. In order to do so, former lieutenant and traitor to the vampire Crown, Nikolai must seek help from the red-hooded temptress he needs to avoid at all costs. The secret he carries could prove dangerous for her if she gets too close…even though keeping her close—very close—is the only thing on his mind.
Sienna will do anything for the Black Lily, and when Nikolai asks for her assistance to gain the trust of the commonwealth, it’s the last thing she wants to do. The thought of leaving her woods and her wolves behind is terrifying…not to mention the danger being with Nikolai poses.
Each book in the Vampire Blood series is a standalone and can be read out of order.
While you can enjoy book 2 on its own, there are characters and political games already in motion from book 1 (THE BLACK LILY, Cinderella retelling) that will broaden the world for you.
