Review: The Serpent and the Wings of Night by Carissa Broadbent

Title: The Serpent and the Wings of Night

Series: Crowns of Nyaxia #1

Author: Carissa Broadbent

Human or vampire, the rules of survival are the same: never trust, never yield, and always – always – guard your heart.

The adopted human daughter of the Nightborn vampire king, Oraya carved her place in a world designed to kill her. Her only chance to become something more than prey is entering the Kejari: a legendary tournament held by the goddess of death herself.

But winning won’t be easy amongst the most vicious warriors from all three vampire houses. To survive, Oraya is forced to make an alliance with a mysterious rival.

Everything about Raihn is dangerous. He is a ruthless vampire, an efficient killer, an enemy to her father’s crown… and her greatest competition. Yet, what terrifies Oraya most of all is that she finds herself oddly drawn to him.

But there’s no room for compassion in the Kejari. War for the House of Night brews, shattering everything that Oraya thought she knew about her home. And Raihn may understand her more than anyone – but their blossoming attraction could be her downfall, in a kingdom where nothing is more deadly than love.

Oh wow. I don’t have the words! The only word I have to describe it is powerful.

Oraya is basically the adopted daughter of the vampire King, Vincent. She enters into a tournament with one goal, to win to gain her wish from the Goddess Nyaxia, Mother of the Ravenous Dark.

There she makes tenuous allies in the form of Mische and Raihn, 2 vampires.

The tournament, the Kejari, is absolutely brutal but in all of this, the light in it for me was Raihn. He is utterly beautiful inside and out.

It was dark, deadly and delish at the same time. There were twists, secrets and half truths everywhere. I was obsessed and can’t wait to see what happens next!

‘Aja saraeta.
Take my truth.’
