Review: Isadora - Ella Frank



Isadora Nikitas understands what it means to be betrayed. That lesson was taught to her in the prime of her life, and when she is offered a chance to exact revenge, she finds it difficult to refuse. 

Instead, she entrusts her survival to a mysterious vampire known only as Diomêdês, a male who wants nothing in return but to watch over her—in every way imaginable. 

Gifted with speed, strength, and immortality, she determines that her life will no longer be governed by the needs and wants of a mere man. She has cowered for the last time, and with her Ancient by her side, she thrives and blossoms into the most formidable female vampire in existence. 

But, once upon a time, like all little girls, Isadora believed in love. She believed it because she once had it. So, when it comes along a second time, she knows that it’s possible—but when you love someone, they become your weakness. Unless, in fact, they become your enemy instead… 


Fulfilling your life’s prophecy should be empowering. At least, that’s what Elias Fontana always believed. But, as he stands guard over the beautiful vampire he’s taken hostage, his convictions start to crumble. Made to believe by his creators that he and two others have been designed to destroy a dangerous race, he has difficulty connecting his current reality to the woman he once loved. 


When friends become enemies and enemies become lovers, who can you trust in the webs of lies and despair? And, when your life is at stake and blood has been shed, how much are you willing to sacrifice to fulfill your destiny?

Isadora starts off right where Alasdair ends and the intrigue and mystery begins to thicken.  Ella Frank continues to weave an intricate tale and mythos around her world, mixing both the real world and the world of Greek mythology together in a unique way.  And where the previous book left me with more questions than answers, Isadora continues to confound me when it comes to what I want to know.

As more and more of each character’s backstory comes to light, more of the tapestry of the story Frank is telling comes together and the intricate plot is amazing.  I wasn’t able to put the book down.  This book was at times heartbreaking, erotic, thrilling and frustrating.  There are characters I loved to hate, hated to love and just plain was fascinated by.  And before you fret, you get plenty of action between the guys from Alasdair.  Isadora so far is probably my favorite of the three cousins.  She’s sassy, independent and tough.  Not so sure about her connection to Elias.  That boy makes me angry.

I continue to be enthralled with this series.  I cannot wait for the third book to come out.  And I’m hoping that’s not the last we’ll see of Frank in the paranormal genre. -Peace and Love, Buxom J
