Hazelwood’s Step into Vampire Romance with ‘Bride’

Bride – Ali Hazelwood

A dangerous alliance between a Vampyre bride and an Alpha Werewolf becomes a love deep enough to sink your teeth into in this new paranormal romance from the #1 New York Times bestselling author of Love, Theoretically and The Love Hypothesis.

Misery Lark, the only daughter of the most powerful Vampyre councilman of the Southwest, is an outcast—again. Her days of living in anonymity among the Humans are over: she has been called upon to uphold a historic peacekeeping alliance between the Vampyres and their mortal enemies, the Weres, and she sees little choice but to surrender herself in the exchange—again…

Weres are ruthless and unpredictable, and their Alpha, Lowe Moreland, is no exception. He rules his pack with absolute authority, but not without justice. And, unlike the Vampyre Council, not without feeling. It’s clear from the way he tracks Misery’s every movement that he doesn’t trust her. If only he knew how right he was….

Because Misery has her own reasons to agree to this marriage of convenience, reasons that have nothing to do with politics or alliances, and everything to do with the only thing she’s ever cared about. And she is willing to do whatever it takes to get back what’s hers, even if it means a life alone in Were territory…alone with the wolf.

Our Review

Bride by Ali Hazelwood marks the author’s foray into adult fantasy romance, weaving a tale of Misery Lark, a vampyre forced into a political marriage with Lowe, a werewolf, to unite their lands. As Misery delves into the union with an ulterior motive—to uncover the truth behind her friend Serena’s disappearance—she finds herself unexpectedly drawn to Lowe despite their inherent differences.

Following the announcement of Bride, we eagerly anticipated its release. If you’ve checked out our reviews before, you know we’re huge fans of Hazelwood’s STEM romances.

Bride will surely find its audience among certain readers, it is a good venture difference from her previous works after all, and all those fantasy fans will surely want to sink their teeth into this one.

In terms of world-building, Bride offers a cursory glimpse into its fantastical setting, providing enough context for readers to grasp the conflicts between vampyres, werewolves, and humans. While this aspect of the book didn’t detract from the reading experience, those seeking a more intricate fantasy world may find it lacking. This is a romance book first and foremost!

In conclusion, whilst Bride is a notably different venture for Hazelwood, we think this is a good, albeit tepid start to her romantasy journey! Those craving a heavy fantasy may find themselves disappointed, whilst those looking for a fun romance will surely find themselves at a good pace with this novel.
