Shattered Skies, Beginning’s End, is a dramatic story of twisted killings and love and hate that takes place within a horrific world where alien vampires have taken over the earth and made humans their slaves. The vampires have created a new genetic race, the Dominus, breeding a scary blood-drinking race of human and vampire that prey off the humans that are left. People are relegated to the classes of slaves, food and mates.
This is a world where sex kills and a rogue group of humans kills as many of the Dominus as they can by bedding them. This warrior group is led by mysterious doctor who has raised the 16 members of the group since infancy, hidden away in an underground bunker.
The plot twists and turns as the heroine, the unselfish Catalina, rejects her traditional female role and demands to fight the Dominus alongside the men, bedding and killing as she goes. Her emotions tear her apart as she struggles with herself, torn between a mad attraction for the Dominus King and her fellow warrior, Darien.
As the clashes between Dominus and Vampire and Humans continue, Catalina is forced to face herself. Could she really be destined to save the world as the enigmatic Doctor’s ancient prophecy predicts?
“Kitten, you have to wake up. You are breeding.” Then he was shaking me; shaking me so hard that he was disturbing my easy state and that made me angry. I slowly opened my eyes and he was there looking me over, eyes glistening. “I thought you were dead. What happened? I felt you cry out to me. I felt it in my mind.”
Wow, he was beautiful and he smelled of something that I couldn’t quite put my finger on; a mix of vanilla and lilac maybe. Whatever it was, it made me feel safe. I didn’t know where I was and I didn’t care, because as long as I could see him and smell him I was where I was supposed to be. The look in his eyes took my breath away. It was like he was looking at the most precious gemstone in the world. I knew that I would never understand that look but my heart already did. I was truly loved by two different men. Who could say that they were really that blessed in their lifetime? I was sure the list was extremely short.
Sure the love was different. One love had the passion to burn me like the sun with his kisses, and the other could take away all my fears with just the brush of his skin, but no matter the feeling that they gave me, the look in their eyes was the same. I could die knowing that I may have been nothing to the world, but to these two men I was everything.
I liked the book. the plat was good..
Catalina has not had a easy life,if you can even call it a life.her and her family of rogue humans live underground because Vampire have taken over the planet. while all the other females in her family are playing the part of house Wives,she is out with the men taking down the Dominus, the horrific genetic mix of human and vampire.
This was a good read. Although I have some mix feeling about the book. first off Catalina(cat for short)has a lot of self-confidence on minute and then the next she is second guessing yourself, and it's like this all threw the book. Catalina is very indecisive and that kinda drove me nuts but it also had me guessing what she was going to do next and I just couldn't put the book down. Second, there was a few times when things kept getting repeated over and over and it was kinda annoying at times, but those are the only two things about the book that I didn't care for. I would five this a 3 out of 5 and i'm getting ready to start the second book because i'm dying to know what happens next.
