"For humans and vampires, the rules of survival are the same: never trust, never yield, and always - always - guard your heart. The adopted human daughter of the Nightborn vampire king, Oraya carved her place in a world designed to kill her. Her only chance to become something more than prey is entering the Kejari: a legendary tournament held by the goddess of death herself. But winning won't be easy amongst the most vicious warriors from all three vampire houses. To survive, Oraya is forced to make an alliance with a mysterious rival. Everything about Raihn is dangerous. He is a ruthless vampire, an efficient killer, an enemy to her father's crown... and her greatest competition. Yet, what terrifies Oraya most of all is that she finds herself oddly drawn to him. But there's no room for compassion in the Kejari. War for the House of Night brews, shattering everything that Oraya thought she knew about her home. And Raihn may understand her more than anyone - but their blossoming attraction could be her downfall, in a kingdom where nothing is more deadly than love."--… (mais)

First, I was surprised by the disclaimer at the start of the book. I'm not used to seeing warnings about violence and sexuality, etc. at the beginning of the book. I have since seen it in another book, so maybe this is a new trend. I have noticed a lot of fantasy stories getting more and more violent. While I haven't seen a reference to the young adult genre, if this is geared to that audience, that may be the reason for the disclaimer. However, I did not experience this story as more violent than others I have read. I was not expecting the romance genre, and am not interested in that aspect of the story, so that is a detractor for me. Generally, this story is interesting, and it references situations which are mysterious to the main characters, which they then make assumptions about, and are not believable*. This story feels like it has aspects of The Hunger Games, and maybe Twilight. Conclusion: I generally enjoyed reading this book, except for the sex scenes (well done, just not interesting to me), and after starting the second book, decided to not continue this series.

* Spoiler alert: I am referring to the main character, Oraya, thinking that she would have relatives that are survivors that she could find, which is her motivation to pursue the contest. Also, she is glad / does not want to be a vampire, and yet her goal is the win the games so she can be a vampire to find her relatives. This does not make sense to me.

Bonne lecture - Globalement j'ai passé un moment agréable.

Sur certains aspects, j'ai retrouvé un peu de Nevernight dans ma lecture, notamment pour le côté badass de Oraya et son impertinence à peine déguisée.

L'univers était plutôt intéressant, même si j'aurais aimé plus d'explications sur les enjeux de ce royaume, la politique et les différents pouvoirs qu'on peut rencontrer.

Certains personnages ont montré une facette assez complexe d'eux-mêmes. Mention spéciale à Vincent qui m'a paru être un protagoniste tout en subtilité dont j'aimerais en savoir plus par la suite.
Oraya est un personnage complexe mais j'ai regretté la naïveté qui la caractérisée pendant tout le long du roman (il y a des choses évidentes à côté desquelles elle est complètement passée, elle ne semble pas plus s'intéresser que cela à la politique, aux différents enjeux et aux motivations de son père par exemple). Par certains aspects je comprends sa froideur, la distance qu'elle prend avec les évènements mais d'un autre côté j'ai eu plus de mal à m'attacher à elle comme à Raihn.

Justement, parlons du plot principal (autour duquel gravite d'autres intrigues secondaires) : je n'ai pas ressenti cette tension tout au long du roman, la faute à de trop nombreuses épreuves traversées en 1 ou 2 chapitres, résolues en 1/4 de secondes. Je n'ai donc pas éprouvé la peur qu'Oraya aurait dû ressentir face à ces vampires de légende prêts à combattre contre elle, à ces épreuves qui auraient pu être un peu plus grandioses.

Pour conclure, je dirai qu'il y a pas mal de potentiel pour qu'on se détache un peu du côté redondant de certaines romantasy, mais qu'il est un peu éclipsé par l'absence de tension dans le récit et le faible attachement que j'ai ressenti vis-à-vis des personnages.
Je ne sait pas si je me laisserai séduire par la suite maintenant que les enjeux ont été posés et grâce aux révélations finales. Mais il est clair que si on retombe un peu dans les mêmes travers je n'irai pas au bout des 5 tomes annoncés par l'autrice. ( )

This book has been all over BookTok since I first discovered the app over a year and a half ago. Many reviewers say this book has the best presentation of vampires. Now, I have read many books, both fantasy and bodice rippers with the vampire theme prominent in their main characters, but here we have a human female as our main lead. A young woman named Oraya filled with rage toward the vampires because they had killed her family long ago. She would have probably even died that night if it had not been for a vampire king named Vincent who ends up taking her in as his adopted daughter.

The King did not know then that his greatest love would be his ruination - nor that either would come in the form of a tiny, helpless child
Vampires are normally known for their arrogance and maybe Vincent did believe himself untouchable or that the child he raised, trained, and saw as his own was too weak of a human to do anything against him. But we never know anything he is thinking, what he is doing, or much about him except what we get from our main female lead.

Oraya is human in her world. A world where humans are treated as nothing more than blood banks and cattle for the vampires. When she was twelve, she was almost killed until she was found by Vincent. He saved her and took her to his home. I loved the chemistry they had. You could see he loved her in his way. He taught her to survive his world and even saw her as his own. So, when she enters the Kejari tournaments she is pitted against other vampires in a set of brutal games in which she will have to survive to win.

It is here we meet Raihn, who offers Oraya an alliance and a nicer place to stay that would offer her far more protection than the greenhouse she was at. I enjoyed that their romance was slow and the chemistry between them burned deeper than the tournament itself. I was happy to see that was not something instant but that the romance was slow and steady offering up steamy moments between them whenever they were together.

I love fantasy romance novels with vampires at its core. The Serpent and the Wings offers an intriguing and refreshing take on the classic vampire love story. The novel is full of thrilling action, steamy romance, and intricate world-building that will keep readers hooked from beginning to end. The author does a fantastic job of balancing the fantasy elements with the romance, creating a captivating story that will keep readers wanting more. ( )
