Review: Asylum by K.A. Tucker

Asylum (Causal Enchantments #2) by K.A. Tucker

Title: Asylum

Author: K.A. Tucker

Source: ebook from author for review

Tucked away in Sofie's wintery asylum with no hope of release for years, Evangeline must come to terms with her situation: the curse still plagues her, she's now hunted by a
two thousand-year-old vampire, and the guy she's in love with tried to kill her.
Plus, she's locked up with a cranky Max and the Forero kids—two people everyone seems to prefer dead over alive. Things aren't looking good.
Meanwhile, back in Manhattan, Sofie struggles to keep forty trapped and bloodthirsty Ratheus vampires at bay and a desperate Viggo from killing Evangeline's friends, all while hints stir outside the walls of the NYC vampire asylum of a war brewing between the Sentinel and the witches.
Is there any hope for Evangeline and Caden? Can Sofie control the rival powers? Is the fate of Earth predestined? Find out in Book 2 of the Causal Enchantment series, a sequel to ANATHEMA.

My Take...
Absolutely excited to be on the blog tour and review Asylum. Anathema was my 2nd review to ever write, the first for my blog. *Please don't go read it, I am sure it was horrible, although the book was wonderful* But I remember when I finished Anathema how I could not wait for this next book to be out. I was dying of anticipation; wondering what would happen to my favorite characters whose lives were left hanging in the balance. And let me tell you, K.A. Tucker has done it again. She, like I have stated before, has one awesome imagination!!

Taking off immediately from where Anathema ended, Sofie is staring down blood thirsty vampires from another planet. She knows Evangeline is safe, but herself, not so much. She has the likes of Viggo and Mortimer to contend with. Sofie just sent Evangeline somewhere safe away from Viggo and Mortimer’s clutches, so yeah there is going to be hell to pay. They need to get ahold of Evangeline and get that pendant off her neck to bring back their lost love, Veronique. But Sofie won’t chance waking up her sister if it means hurting Evangeline. Sofie has grown to love Evangeline as if she were her own daughter. Will Sofie find a way to save both her sister and Evangeline?

Evangeline on the other hand is god knows where…in a cabin…buried in snow…with no idea when she will ever be able to leave. Plus she has the moody Forero kids to live with. Thankfully Leo and Max are there to keep her company and hopefully out of trouble! But when the only thing you see when you close your eyes at night are the blood crazed red eyes of the one you love staring you down, you tend not to get much sleep. Will she ever be able to be around Caden again without the fear of him ripping her throat out?

Gee whiz what a roller coaster of a story! Asylum was so full of twists, secrets and nail biting anticipation I was sad to see the book come to an end only to have to wait for the next book. Seriously, that ending was crazy good! Not to mention the characters, oh yes, gotta love these characters. There are some you will love to hate, and some you will just love to love. For instance Caden, with fangs bared you can't help but love him. Another character I grew to like was Mage, the scary 2000 year old Vampire from Ratheus. Allow Asylum to suck you into its world of vampires and magic...and I promise you will not regret it. People are claiming vampires are old news; not with K.A. Tucker’s Causal Enchantment series…in fact they are just getting started!
