It is a verse-ornated storyAbout love, betrayal, wrath,Royal vampires' bliss and gloryBringing them straight to their death.Luella, fierce, strong vampire,Falls for a pretty human catchSent on her fiancé's desireTo celebrate they are engaged.This unexpected turnaboutIs doomed to come to a dead end:Her human sweetheart's dead to shroud;Her fiancé's avenged for that;And she is punished for blood treason,Banished into a mortal child,Whose human body is a prisonFor all her powers to bind.Her memories obliterated,She is to find her love at lastWho proves to be too much relatedTo the misfortunes from her past.
Ordeal is a wonderful, exciting and romantic paranormal story, yes told in verse in more than 200 pages! And because of that, it is even more amazing as a feat! Despite the narrative being in rhymes, the writing flows easily and effortlessly, it is humourous at times while romantic at others. Tatyana Varenko has created a quite unique and entertaining masterpiece.
Verdict: No matter if you enjoy or not poems, I would recommend you to give Ordeal a chance and read it, because it is a uniquely told, entertaining paranormal story, and I'm sure once you get the rythm of the narration the pages will just flew by (believe me, tht's what happened to me).
