The Education of Lilanoir Rue is the first story in the Sanguis City Series. Lilanoir Rue, a side effect of The End of the world, has never had a say in her future until now. A rift between two factions of the Human Reservation is growing and she is offered a life with the man she loves. But nothing is ever normal for Lily, even something as simple as love. Used to being called a monster, Lily meets a real one at the worst possible moment but finds out that he isn't the only one she needs to fear.
Lilanoir's world has been turned upside down, again, in My Name is Noir, making her flee to the city that she has been avoiding for six long months, the city of blood. Join Lilanoir on her first day in Sanguis City in the second prequel of this Paranormal Romance/ Urban Fantasy series. Life is certainly different than where she grew up on the Human Reservation. Lily knows that the city is ruled by the Vampires that took over the world but she doesn't know where she fits in, she isn't exactly a vampire. She soon discovers that her fangs are the ticket to the good life. It seems all she has to do is change her name and she can have it all. That is if only Tombs, the University's researcher, would leave her alone.
Sorry that this is so late today. Working and blogging do not mix.
This book is actually two stories in one. The first is a prequel regarding how Lily started her life and her relationship with Crow. The second is after Lily arrives at Sanguis City and becomes Noir.
I have not read any of the series but I find the prequels to be informative and very interesting. I think that it is important in understanding how Lily comes about and why she has not only become a bleeder but moved to Sanguis City.
The writing is good and I am very interested in the rest of the series. This is mostly due to the fact that the author is very good at creating the world and really describing the characters in such a way you feel connected to them. It is relatively short due to the nature of the prequels and so you are left with some questions, but for the most part the author is very good at answering questions and resolving any conflicts the characters may have.
