The Gala: Vampire Royals Book 2 by Leigh Walker


The Pageant is almost over, and Gwyneth West knows she can win—except the prince is a vampire, and some of the other contestants are turning out to be quite beastly.

What do you do when the person you love…might want to eat you alive?
Struggling to hold onto her position in the palace, Gwyn knows her vampire prince could slip through her fingers in an instant. And when human rebels threaten to storm the vampire royals once more, Gwyn finds herself caught between two worlds: her people, and the vampire she loves.
Leigh Walker writes action packed futuristic sci-fi, sweet romantic vampire novels, and stories that capture your heart and then make it race.

So this series is right up my alley in fact I rated the first book in the series a 5 stars on good reads. I am really enjoying it however there is one thing that is making me not want to read them. These books are very VERY similar to the Selection series by Kiera Cass and so far the vampire twist has not really been enough to separate them.
But if we review this book as though it isn't the exact same as the Selection Series then its actually pretty good.  The writing is really fast paced meaning you are never really bored. The characters are fun and although there isn't really any growth with them the conversations are fairly interesting and some what believable. 
Gwyn is just too nice for her character to be likable which is disappointing, she gets herself into a situation which should cause The Prince and all of the vampires not to trust her yet they do because she is Gwyn and obviously the favourite. Gwyn also continuously gets mad that Dallas is kissing other girls even though she is on a dating show. This is strange to me, If you don't like the game then don't play. 
The idea of Dallas turning whoever he decides to marry into a Vampire has come up in this book which makes my eyes roll so hard. 

Overall though with the negatives put aside its not a bad book but you don't feel good for reading it. If you liked the Selection series by Kiera Cass you will probably like this and if you like this then you will probably like that. 

Thanks for Reading
