The Nysein by Beth Mikell - Review
The Nysein: A few centuries ago, control became an issue abounding in a war like no other. The vampires and necromancers reigned sovereign in the shadows of eerie night. They prophesied a new era…a new breed of enhanced vampire no one on earth had ever seen…
A wasting disease marks the Nysein race after King Darién seeks vengeance upon his mother’s murderers. Every day he chokes on loneliness and past mistakes as another innocent victim dies without hope. His only salvation lies in a whispered curse, immersed in an ancient mating ritual. An idea so repulsive, he can’t imagine ever fulfilling…mating for life with a woman he’s never met, half human, half vampire. With one look upon the half-breed’s face, his rationality plummets.
For scholarly beauty Jenera Cole, life moves in slow motion, another strike against her…another disappointment. She is unaware of her immortal destiny until fate traps her inside an otherworldly hell, however, a stranger appears within her supernatural prison…a man with seductive eyes and an incredible power. Destiny isn’t only a word, it is the source of the Nysein magic, and Jenera must accept her fate. She must lay claim to the lost King as secrets bury them, lies unite them, and a prophecy comes true...

This is my first book by this author and won't be the last!
The Nysein are a higher race of vamps and Darien is the King of his people. His been told he should go find a half breed that will help cure his people of a devastating wasting disease .... He doesn't truly believe in his fated mate and has no interest in finding her until he see's her.......
Jenera is a quiet and sensible characther, but when she's in an accident and close to death she's confused and keeps seeing a dark handsome stranger visiting her, but he keeps disappearing. When she awakes she's somewhere new and that man is there and is even more alluring. His smitten and most probably she is too.
I loved the way the Jenera and Darien met in 'spirit' world before meeting in the flesh. I also found Darien very romantic as he really did not want to push her into mating with him. The difficult part for him was now to tell a human that his a vampire and wants her to stay with him forever and hopefully heal his people. This is when we see Jenera bloom and become a worthy queen.
The world building was well done and characther development enjoyable, the story line kept me hooked until the end, I could have read more of this couple as they were so sexy and fun together, totally fated souls in my pov.
5 stars - can't fault it
