This is an Ok story. However, I find it incredibly disappointing when a time-travel novel has almost no historical information or interesting facts, and I am not even a history enthusiast. Also, I understand that it must be difficult for an author to decide how quickly to hand over facts, or draw out a readers curiousity, I got bored. I did get the sequel, but only made it about 2/3 of the way through before ditching it. Each to their own....
I’m first going to say....GRAB THIS BOOK NOW!!! I’m serious, NOW! What are you waiting for..GO!! Now for my no spoilers review. I think this is my favorite book by this author. And I’ve read quite a few by her. I want everyone to know, this book is edited beautifully. I appreciate that as I never went huh....like with other authors books. Which is huge for me. All you have to do is get lost in the story. And you will get lost. And fall in love with beautifully written characters. It is a vampire story but nothing I’ve ever read before. Has a dystopian feel too. ( which is one of my favorite genre ) Enoch, the way the author wrote him... WOW,YUMMY, why can’t he be real? Eve is a kick ass female. Strong, independent, smart. Great role model. There are characters you’ll hate. All good stories have them. So, here’s my review. As I wait for next book, I’ll reread it. Yes, it’s that good. Now, go, buy it, READ. GO!! What are you waiting for.
Wow, what an amazing adventure!! Bond has once again brought to life another fantastic story!!
The characters were incredible. I absolutely loved reading about Enoch and Eve. Both are very strong willed characters which made the story so addicting.
The story-line was unforgettable. At first I was a bit skeptical about reading a time travel story because usually full length novels such as this one tends to bore me and I loose interest in the story, but not this one. Bond kept me in suspense throughout the entire story as I continued to turn each page. And of course, this author has a knack for cliffhangers and here I am sitting on my metaphorical cliff waiting to find out what happens next. I WANT MORE!! I highly recommend this read!!
High Stakes starts out really good! It goes right into the heart of things and doesn't lull in action. Eve is on a mission. She has to kill Enoch. Enoch is the leader and creator of the vampire race. Well, one of 3. Enoch and his siblings have filled the world with monsters and the human race is at war to stay alive. But the mission Eve is on and determined to carry out to the very end might be doomed before it even starts. Everything from the first sentence to the last sentence keeps you hanging on and interested. I absolutely loved this book. This book is definitely one I recommend.
Vampires and time travel?? Yes, please! This is an edge of your seat, need to know what happens next kind of read. And I love it! Eve is trained to kill vampires and becomes an Asset, an elite Hunter of sorts. She and 2 others go back in time to eliminate the threat so their current timeline is saved. What they find is unexpected and they start to discover who's the real monster(s) that threaten humanity. I enjoyed the characters and their development grows as the plot thickens. I can't wait to read the next book!
Wow what a book high! I’ve been in a serious book funk lately and High Stakes is just what I needed. I’ll be honest I was really scared to read it because I love this authors writing and this was a different genre. But OMG Casey Bond did not disappoint. I absolutely loved the world she built within High Stakes and the characters were just phenomenal. There was so much drama and suspense. Each turn of the page had you wanting more and Casey Bond brought it from beginning to end. Book one had me wondering what’s more to come and I can’t wait to see what’s in store for us in book two, High Seas.
Very fun and different take on time travel and vampires. I am excited about the world the author has created. I enjoyed the characters and have so many questions in reguards to Enoch and the future. While the story was good I did feel like there was so much world building in this book that I didn't get enough character or plot development. I will be reading the next book and I'm definitely curious. 3.5 stars.
High Stakes is a fresh and interesting take on the vampire mythos. The post-apocalyptic setting and characters are fun and not cliched. I can't wait to read more about Eve and the mystery at the end that gave me so many questions, but in a good way. I cannot wait for High Seas (book two).
I don't really have words to express how much I loved High Stakes. From the last 30 pages until the end, I didn't breathe. The characters are intriguing, the setting fabulous, and the monsters... well... they aren't what you think.
Entertaining, emotional, deeply moving, fun, romantic, full of excitement, High Stakes is one book you definitely want to read. I can't wait to read it again.
