Prince of Power by Elisabeth Staab

In the eyes of his father, Anton has been one disappointment after another-when it comes to ruthlessly murdering vampires, it's just not in his DNA. Now he has one last chance: steal the unique powers of the vampire king's beautiful sister, Tyra...and then kill her. Tyra will stop at nothing to defeat the wizard enemies of her people, but when Anton saves her life, their unlikely alliance could change everything. With her superior strength and Anton's insider information she could take down the wizards once and for all. But she can't trust Anton- any more than she can deny the passion that sparks between them.

Prince of Power continues where King of Darkness ends off.  This book works great as a standalone, but anyone who's already read King is already planning to pick this book up.  

The characters are captivating and spellbinding.  There's plenty of action and suspense to keep you on the edge of your seat.  I was really impressed by Staab's ability to keep me guessing what was going to happen next.  No matter how much I came to know the characters, none of them became predictable.  

Though I wouldn't categorize this as a quick read, it's definitely enjoyable enough that you won't notice the time it takes to plow through it. Personally, I would count this among one of the better vampire series on the market. Considering that it's still in the early stages, this is definitely one to keep an eye on.  For those paranormal fans out there, you'll want to get in on the ground floor for this one by reading King and then Prince.  This is the series you're going to be discussing with your friends.

The old grey donkey, Eeyore stood by himself in a thistly corner of the Forest, his front feet well apart, his head on one side, and thought about things. Sometimes he thought sadly to himself, "Why?" and sometimes he thought, "Wherefore?" and sometimes he thought, "Inasmuch as which?" and sometimes he didn't quite know what he was thinking about.
