Scion’s Freedom—Book Synopsis

As the Scion of the House of Dracul, vampire princess Cassy Daniels just wants a simple, royal-free life in New Atlanta. It’s been thirty years since The Fall, when the world’s economy collapsed. Although supernatural creatures are helping to rebuild society, Cassy remains in hiding to avoid an arranged marriage.

When her journalist bodyguard and best friend, Erica, is assassinated, she flees for her life with the help of Detective David Ashe. He’s reluctant at first. She used him a few weeks prior. However, she’s the sole survivor of a serial killing and his only lead. Something about David is magnetic and Cassy falls for him hard.

Can they find Erica’s killer before he finds them? Can David forgive her past enough to love her? Can the Council of Crones, a coven of elder witches, provide more insight as to who is hunting Cassy and why? Will she survive the assassination attempts and still hold on to the man she loves?

Book Review of Scion’s Freedom

J. Annas Walker has masterfully created a world that is set years in the future, after the world as we know it has collapsed and rebuilt itself. Magical creatures are no longer just in story books. They have integrated into society, and have become as every day to humans as a coffee pot or a television. As we read we are immersed in a new society of werewolves, fairies, sprites, and vampires coexisting with their human counterparts. I have to say that my favorite part of this book was this new fairytale world that Ms. Walker created. It allows the reader to escape from the everyday into the pages of the book.

As for the rest of the story, Scion's Freedom was rated Scorching for a reason! There was an instant attraction between Cassy and David that was both believable and intriguing. Their chemistry jumped off of the page, and wrapped around me drawing me deeper into the story. A vampire princess who resists her birthright, isn’t an uncommon storyline, however Ms.Walker turned it into something new and unusual with the depth of her storytelling skills. She has created the beginnings of a promising new world of stories that I hope she continues, as I would love to see more of these characters.

If you enjoy a book with romance, suspense, intrigue, and a bit of magic then I would highly recommend Scion’s Freedom. The twists in the plot surprised and delighted me, and occasionally I even found myself laughing out loud at the characters. Well done Ms.Walker.
