The Originals

The Originals: The Rise - Julie Plec

The Blurb

Family is power. The Original vampire family swore it to each other a thousand years ago. They pledged to remain together always and forever. But even when you're immortal, promises are hard to keep.

Arriving in New Orleans in 1722, Original vampire siblings Klaus, Elijah and Rebekah Mikaelson believe they've escaped their dangerous past. But the city is lawless, a haven for witches and werewolves unwilling to share territory. The siblings are at their mercy…especially after Klaus meets the beautiful and mysterious Vivianne. Her impending marriage is key to ending the war between the supernatural factions—and Klaus's attraction to her could destroy the uneasy alliance. As Elijah works toward securing a piece of the city for his family, and Rebekah fights her unexpected feelings for a French captain, will Klaus's volatile desires bring their world crashing down—and tear them apart for good?


My Thoughts

I just cannot get into this one, I liked the blurb which is why I selected it, but it is just not holding my attention and I'm not invested in the characters, I made it about 30% before giving up. I will be putting on my "to try again later" shelf, as I am very much a mood reader....but at the moment it's just not my cuppa tea..
