Blurb: Théoden: Tonight, I have to make one of the hardest decisions of my life. I have to choose which two on my children to send off with my Sire, my King, Ara. As you know, I don’t like to share what belongs to me, but I can’t deny my King what he’s commanded of me. The highlight of my evening, however, will be my ascension to Prince of the City. I’m expected to announce my own decree at tonight’s ceremony and I can’t wait. The citizen of the Kingdom of Ara WILL respect my rule… or else.
Noel: I got a break last night when Théoden allowed his sons some free time. But tonight is going to be no walk in the park for me. Marco is all business and he doesn’t take his job of training me lightly. I’m still trying to figure out what I can and can’t do around him, the cruel, sadistic bastard is so unpredictable. One thing is for certain, I want to learn what it means to be a vampire. I don’t want to be ruled by my nature… I want to control it.
Warning: This serial contains strong adult content not meant for sensitive eyes. The novelettes in this serial will be filled with dark, twisted, raunchy, and steamy scenes between powerful, sexy men that will either offend you or get ya revved up. This series will not be pulling any punches, and it won’t apologize for hurting your feelings, either. You’ll find no fluff and ruffles here. The vampires are not misunderstood, hopeless romantics looking for love. The werewolves are not cute and cuddly and the dragons aren’t the ones from your childhood. This is NOT a romance. There are approximately 24,800 words in this novelette.

Review: For those of us enraptured with Nicholas Bella’s paranormal series, Season 2, Book 2 titled Ascension picks up where we left off in Commanded. This installment is about Théoden and his coronation making him Prince of the city. As we learned in the last book, Ara the King will be leaving to take over more properties and will appoint Théoden to rule in his place.
The night is going to be busy with many changes taking place. After the brothers wake and everyone enjoys their share of cream of wheat for breakfast, or better known as cum in the vampire world, Théoden advises them of the new changes taking place. Noel is a little confused as to, how and if, any of these new changes will be affecting him.
Marco is in charge of training Noel and shopping for new clothes. Noel is under the assumption (and we know what happens when you assume) that now that he is embraced he would be an equal brother.
Marco is shredding that theory to pieces. He continues to be the bastard we all know and love except, I don’t think Noel is loving him too much right now. He is quickly learning the ways of the vampires with fighting and feeding since their time for training has been cut short. Marco is going to be a brutal teacher and Noel will have to learn to curb his attitude or pay, dearly.
As midnight rolls around, all the vampires in the kingdom have gathered at the King’s command. As the coronation gets underway Théoden takes his rightful place at the throne. As the Prince of the city he has a few decrees of his own he expects everyone to follow. And…if they don’t, there will be hell to pay. But priorities come first…feast and fuck.
If you love this series for the wild, no holds barred sex, you will get it. If you love this series for the plot, the take no prisoners dialogue, you will get that, too. Nicholas, cleverly, gives us a little of everything including throwing in a little bit of mystery and suspense as they search for Dante, the wolf hybrid. I am really looking forward to see what he brings to the story and especially the House of Théoden. Will the Prince get his wolf-man? My money is on Théoden.
Each installment shows the author’s originality and imagination. Nicholas doesn’t hold back and continues to break the mold with his storytelling. I can’t wait to see what the future holds for Noel and Théoden and my curiosity is really peaked for Dante. Up next is Negotiation. Could that mean what I think that means? Heh, I guess I have to wait and see.
