Mini-Review: Tentyrian Legacy by Elise Walters


Summary: The legacy begins in the sands of Egypt in a time when an ancient city called Tentyris flourished. Its secretive people, ruled by the Council of the Zodiac, lived peacefully alongside humanity. That time was 53 B.C. More than two millennia later, the power of the Tentyrian people has been all but forgotten. The remnants of memory that live on have been turned into twisted folklore about vampires and astrology.

One girl on the cusp of womanhood is about to discover just how real that folklore is.

With telepathic powers that made her parents send her to a mental institution, Arianna Parker always knew she was different but she never thought a job interview would lead to the discovery of her being a prophesied descendent of an ancient Egyptian vampire race. Nor for that matter did she think she would fall in love with Maximos Vasilliadis, a 2,225 year old vampire. Maximos is the creator of the Tentyrian Brotherhood a secret order of warriors, pledged to prevent a catastrophic event predicted to wipe out Earth.

Maximos believes Arianna is a descendent of his kind the Tentyrian vampires and she has been destined to lead their cause in saving the world. With her 25th birthday approaching, an event that will change her forever, Arianna finds herself caught in the middle of warring vampires some of whom intend to use her and her power of telepathy for evil.

I really, really enjoyed this book! It had wonderful world building, amazing characters and plot, romance, vampires, history...I loved it! It was so unique. 

The first part of the book is alternating between the past (53 BC, Egypt) and the modern day. This set up the back story and world building and I thought it was brilliant. Then the next parts are only modern time but some years later. So Ari, the main character, is around 25 and that's where things get interesting.

And let's not forget the romance. I love Ari and Maximos together, so perfect, sigh... Well anyways I really liked their relationship and how it was developed. Loved it actually! Also, I loved Ari's relationship with Raad, her personal doctor. You can see how she's the daughter he never had and their friendship felt very genuine and a great part of the story. 

So in the end, this is a great book. The only thing is I wished the first part of the book went faster because I just wanted to get to the story! 4.5 stars!
