Hannah spent the first eighty-something years of her life as the First Daughter of the van Kreeosk clan. She lived in luxury and had everything a born vampire could want in their long life. That is until dark secrets force her to flee from the only home she has ever known and join a band of misfits making their way through a goblin epidemic. Two elves, a dwarf, a human, and a vampire pretending to be human--what could possibly go wrong? Hannah needs to keep her fangs in check as well as her feelings, all while running from a lunatic magician hell-bent on dragging her back home, no matter the cost.

Klauden’s Ring by JM Paquette is right up my alley with the various supernatural races, each with their own unique beliefs and culture. Paquette’s take on vampires shows a more humanistic side to the notoriously vicious race and you easily grow attached to the heroine, Hannah. In the same breath, Rory and his companions each add depth to the story, especially considering the relationship between elves and vampires. It was interesting to see how themes of misinformation and prejudice were used in the book and added a layer of realism to the fantasy world. This book was a joy to read and it had me hanging on every word. The complicated nature of Hannah and Rory’s relationship especially was what had me hooked. I am a sucker for a good ill-fated romance. Overall, Klauden’s Ring was a pleasure to read.
