Firstborn: A Novel (Descendants of the House of Bathory Book 2) by [Lee, Tosca]


Face-to-face with her past, Audra Ellison now knows the secret she gave up everything—including her memory—to protect. A secret made vulnerable by her rediscovery, and so powerful neither the Historian nor the traitor Prince Nikola will ever let her live to keep it.

With Luka in the Historian’s custody and the clock ticking down on his life, Audra only has one impossible chance: find and kill the Historian and end the centuries old war between the Progeny and Scions at last—all while running from the law and struggling to control her growing powers.

With the help of a heretic monk and her Progeny friends Claudia, Piotrek, and Jester, Audra will risk all she holds dear in a final bid to save them all and put her powers to the ultimate test.


Firstborn: A Novel (Descendants of the House of Bathory Book 2)


This is the second book in the series, which runs very smoothly from the first book, although the background information is enough to make it a stand alone read too. This story is mixed with an account from the history books, the story of Elizabeth Bathory, who was said to be an Hungarian noble woman that was also a serial killer between 1590-1609, murdering over 650 people.

The murky waters clear a little more in this book and the reasons behind Audra’s drastic measures to cover up who she is becomes clear. There have been shocking revaltions that took the story on a new direction. I grew to love some characters as my opinions changed the more I knew about them.  This book has its hair raising moments as deals with the devil have to be made, An exciting and gripping conclusion before a real shocking ending.

I must say that I didn’t see this ending coming, I was quite blown away, loved it!

I wish to thank Mickey Mikkleson of Creative Edge Publicity for inviting me to read this ebook which I have reviewed honestly.
