The Originals: The Rise (The Originals #1) by Julie Plec

GOODREADS SUMMARY: Family is power. The Original vampire family swore it to each other a thousand years ago. They pledged to remain together always and forever. But even when you're immortal, promises are hard to keep. 

Arriving in New Orleans in 1722, Original vampire siblings Klaus, Elijah and Rebekah Mikaelson believe they've escaped their dangerous past. But the city is lawless, a haven for witches and werewolves unwilling to share territory. The siblings are at their mercy…especially after Klaus meets the beautiful and mysterious Vivianne. Her impending marriage is key to ending the war between the supernatural factions—and Klaus's attraction to her could destroy the uneasy alliance. As Elijah works toward securing a piece of the city for his family, and Rebekah fights her unexpected feelings for a French captain, will Klaus's volatile desires bring their world crashing down—and tear them apart for good?

*MC’s Corner*Note: Spoilers.
I only requested this book on NetGalley because I love The Originals TV show. Its one of my fave TV show right now.

I read some book that are also based on TV shows/movies, most of the times I don't finish them. Why? Because I already know the story, they just write what exactly the story of the show. They're boring.

So obviously I didn't expect myself to finish this. I am shocked when I saw that I finished this. And I am thankful that I read it. It was so good! I want more!

Julie Plec didn't write the story all over again, she wrote another story without losing what this book was based of. I even think its part of the story. This book and the TV show are connected.

If you love the TV show please grab a copy of The Originals: The Rise, you wont regret it!
You don't want to miss a romantic and in-love Klaus.And brokenhearted.
