The Vampire Trap

(City of Wishes #2)

Elle and Dex concoct a plan to lure in the Allegiant vampires responsible for the recent spate of human abductions, but a surprising revelation threatens to change everything.

While Elle works hard to keep the ugly truth of who she really is from Dex, it turns out Dex is keeping a secret of his own.

CITY OF WISHES is an urban fantasy serialized retelling of Cinderella. This episode is approximately 100 print pages.

In a world of fae, vampires and shifters, where wishes can be bought and bargained for, Elle is human, bound to her stepmother by a slave charm. Her only hope at freedom is to wish for it. But the Godmother rules the illegal wish trade, and the price she demands is steep. Is Elle willing to pay it?

Another smashing addition to this series! I was excited to see more of Dax and Elle’s story! This one adds more danger and twists to the story. This one focuses more of plot and characters since the first laid some of the groundwork and world-building for the series. This one was even better, and that ending! Ah, I need the next one!

I loved the complexity and mystery this one adds to Dex and Elle’s stories, and while I’ve always known Dex was more than he seemed when he met Elle, I’m curious to know what is going on, and how his story parallels with the Allegiant’s goals. I know Elle is also more than she seems, but am not sure who/what her connection it. Nik also clearly has a story, and I’m looking forward to finding the answers in future installments! This one has a lot of mystery, but also a lot of clues, and I’m loving the direction this one takes the story!
