#BookReview: The Eternal Trade by Leigh Walker

Synopsis: I knew his true nature, but little did I know that my own feelings for him would prove even more dangerous.

The deal is simple. Enter the Trade. Save the prince. But can I truly reclaim what I have lost? 

Devastated by the loss of her mother and sister, eighteen-year-old Victoria sees little purpose in life. But when she discovers a mysterious letter among her belongings, she is transported through a time portal to the Kingdom, a dangerous land cloaked in darkness.

Forced into an engagement with Dominic, a prince whose alluring looks and unwavering loyalty belie his vampiric nature, Victoria must learn to navigate a world of blood and deceit.

As she delves deeper into the Kingdom's mysteries, Victoria realizes that her arrival may not have been by chance. Despite having no memory of it, she has visited the Kingdom many times before.

Victoria knows that the prince and his family pose a threat. But Dominic also holds the key to her secret past and, more importantly, her future...if only she can survive long enough to uncover it.

Book 1 of 3 in the completed Kingdom of Eternal Night trilogy.


Rating: 3 Stars
My Review: This one for me was a solid 3 star read.  It was a take it or leave it and I do not think I will continue the series.  It felt like a mash up of a middle grade or low young adult story trying to be new adult.  I wished that it would have been just a tad longer, darker, and that our main character would have started getting her memories back throughout the entire story.  As the mystery just felt like it slowed the book down.  The romance felt very vanilla and bland and well I kind of wished that they would have spent more time together. 

Overall, I think this one could be amazing with some editing.
