Taken by the Vampire King (Vampire Warrior Kings #3) by Laura Kaye

Henrik Magnusson is supposed to be immortal, but a mysterious ailment leaves the vampire king near death, and not even the blood of the Proffered, human virgins trained to serve the elite, can sustain him. Then he rescues a beautiful young woman from his enemies, and is filled with blood lust and desire he hasn't felt for centuries.

Photographer Kaira Sorenson's life takes a nightmare turn when she's attacked by blood-thirsty creatures—and saved by a vampire. She should be afraid of Henrik, but she can't deny her intense attraction to this regal, enigmatic being—nor the fact that her blood may be his only salvation. Now she must decide if she's willing to be his forever…

3.5 Stars

If you're looking for quick vampire reads that tug at your heart, consider reading Laura Kaye's Vampire Warrior Kings series. One of the things why I continue to enjoy this series is because each installment takes part in a different part of the world. In Taken by the Vampire King, the reader is transported to beautiful Norway.

Vampire Warrior King, Henrik Magnusson is ill. He's dying and has pretty much accepted his fate. As the fight against the Soul Eaters continue, Henrik rescues a woman who he seems to be undeniably drawn to. Will she be able to save him?

I think for me the first book, In the Service of the King, has been my favorite of the series thus far. It was my first introduction to this particular vampire world. With that being said, Ms. Kaye does a great job explaining this vampire world in each book making them wonderful, novella-length, standalone reads.

I just loved the setting and the insights to the Northern Lights in Taken by the Vampire King. As someone who has never seen these natural light displays in real life, I found the mythology behind the Aurora Borealis to be quite fascinating! Henrik and Kaira find they have a lot of things in common. Their romance is a heart-warming one!
