To summon an Angel of Hell…

Ruxandra Dracula, a 250-year-old vampire, wants nothing to do with the fallen angel that created her. But when fellow vampire Kade tells her a group of magicians in Moscow is going to summon that angel, Ruxandra knows she must try to stop them.

In Moscow, Ruxandra finds herself caught in a web of political and supernatural intrigue. Empress Anna of Russia wants the vampires to be her spies. Her secret police have magic that is nearly impossible to defeat. A cadre of Russian nobles wants them to kill the Empress.

And the Alchemist, the beautiful, whip-smart leader of the magicians, wants Ruxandra as more than just an experimental subject.

As the magicians prepare to summon the fallen angel, Ruxandra must choose: will she kill them to keep the angel from coming, or face the angel and find out her purpose on the earth? (Goodreads)

I went into book three of this series with very low expectations because of how disappointing book two was. I wish I could say things got better, but that would be a lie. Mother of Chaos is an absolute borefest full of cliches frequently found in this genre that I grew tired of a long time ago. At this point, the only good thing about the Princess Dracula books are the covers. How such a horribly written series was able to have such beautiful covers is an absolute mystery. I will not be continuing this series.
