Review ~ The Seventh Sister

The Seventh Sister 

(Parched Series, A Vampire Romance, #2)  

Z.L. Arkadie

A Snippet of The Seventh Sister:
Zillael Decker discovers deep dark secrets, deadly dangers and a blooming love affair all lurking around the next corner.

"He's watching me with wide eyes; I know he felt it too.... The vampire fills me with warmth but the Wek makes my soul flutter."

Zillael hates high school and the tiny one horse town she lives in. She has no friends and no social life, both by choice. But all of that changes the afternoon the fog rolls in and she finds herself face to face with three parched vampires.

Soon her cold, boring small town life starts to heat up and suddenly the girl who's never found any guy interesting enough to crush on is falling in love with two very different supernatural creatures--the charming, popular boy that everyone likes and the sexy, bad boy that's a lot like herself in more ways than one. 

But on the day the fog rolls into town for a second time, she finds herself on the verge of discovering who and what she truly is. 

If this is the first book you've read in the Parched novel series, then the next book to read after finishing this one is Parched (book 1)

From the Author


This book in the Parched novel series is shorter than average to deal with the limitations of writing in the first person point of view (or POV). Parched Book One, and most of the series is told in Clarity's POV but as the saga continues to unfold other sisters will be introduced, and their lives are interesting as well!

After completing Book 1, I knew it was time to introduce Zillael, who in my head had this entire backstory. She is falling for two supernatural creatures and how their association came to be is the focus of The Seventh Sister (Parched, book 2). However, and this is very important, the end of this book picks up right where it leaves off in Quenched (Parched, book 3) at the point where I'm ready to introduce Zillael into the main plot.

Also, this is NOT a YA novel series. This particular story is told by a high school student so her voice is young and so is her world. This is the ONLY book in the series that's told by a teenager, however, we do see and hear Zillael in the rest of the series but circumstances are making her grow up fast, and right before our eyes.

If this is the first book you've read in the Parched novel series and you wish to continue reading on, then Parched (book 1) will be the next read. You shouldn't move on to Quenched (Parched, book 3) without first reading book 1.
