Blog Tour+Review: The White Lily by Juliette Cross

The White Lily (Vampire Blood) by [Cross, Juliette]

To the north of the Varis empire, a mysterious faction spreads propaganda against the vampire monarchy. Friedrich Volya, the Duke of Winter Hill, seeks to discover who they are before his uncle finds them first. King Dominik will punish the traitors with brutal force.

Local schoolteacher, the raven-haired Brennalyn, is on her own mission—to spy on the duke and discover what she can for the Black Lily. She longs to help the commonwealth and bring justice to the many orphans left behind from the ravages of the blood madness, like the children she lovingly keeps in her care. What she doesn't plan for is the heart-pounding attraction she feels for the duke, enemy to the Black Lily.
But when Brennalyn's secret puts her life and the life of her children in danger, Friedrich steps in as her protector, she finds out there's more to the duke than she thought.
Each book in the Vampire Blood series is a standalone story that can be enjoyed out of order.

The White Lily (Vampire Blood #3)
by Juliette Cross

Brennalyn Snow is a schoolteacher caring for seven orphans.  She’s made it her mission to spy for the Black Lily and find out if the Duke of Winter Hill, Friedrich Volya is another oppressor loyal to the crown.
When the Duke starts looking into the past of the fierce woman he’s only met a few times and who stumbled into his selection ritual, he’ll discover she’s the one printing and distributing propaganda under the pseudonym of the White Lily and will do anything in his power to keep her and her children safe even by risking his own life.
Brenna and Friedrich make one explosive combination and I felt her independence and determination were a great match to his domineering nature.  On the other hand, we see how her children bring out the softer side of him and make him appear almost human as well as some aspects of his relationship with Grant.
This is another great book on the Vampire Blood series and an amazing re-tale of Snow White down to the mirror and the poisoned apple.  I really enjoyed the story from beginning to end and the way the author created the perfect balance between the fairy tale and the world of the Black Lily.
I can’t wait to get more of these tales of darkness, love and war as told by Ms. Cross.
