{Blog Tour: Review} The City Beneath - By Melody Johnson


Title: The City Beneath
Author: Melody Johnson
Publisher: Lyrical Press
Genre: Paranormal Romance
Format: Kindle

As a journalist, Cassidy DiRocco thought she had seen every depraved thing New York City’s underbelly had to offer. But while covering what appears to be a vicious animal attack, she finds herself drawn into a world she never knew existed. Her exposé makes her the target of the handsome yet brutal Dominic Lysander, the Master Vampire of New York City, who has no problem silencing her to keep his coven’s secrets safe…
But Dominic offers Cassidy another option: ally. He reveals she is a night blood, a being with powers of her own, including the ability to become a vampire. As the body count escalates, Cassidy is caught in the middle of a vampire rebellion. Dominic insists she can help him stop the coming war, but wary of his intentions, Cassidy enlists the help of the charming Ian Walker, a fellow night blood. As the battle between vampires takes over the city, Cassidy will have to tap into her newfound powers and decide where to place her trust…



It's been a minute since I've read a good vampire novel...the market was slightly over saturated there for a while...but Melody was able to create something super intriguing! Diving into Cassidy's world made me feel completely emerged in every aspect of her life. After meeting with Dominic it seemed as though everything took off & amplified times 10.  Not only is she now caught up in a massive Vampire power struggle, she's also got to figure out who to trust. (And it's never easy when both of the guys working to earn your trust have charming traits of their own!) 

Overall by the end of this book I was begging for a sequel! The chemistry, shocks, twist and reveal actions made this book TOTALLY worth the read. I can't wait to get my hands on more of Melody's writings!
