I started reading this series on Scribd and have been devouring it the past month, it's quite good and has exceeded all my expectations (i.e. the covers made me a little leery...I'm sorry, I had to say it! :) ). I hope its ok, but I’m doing a rather blanket review of the first 5 installments here…
I have this little problem. I LOVE a good no-holds-barred steamy love story, but I cannot STAND romance books because the characters/plot almost always lack depth. Not a problem to be found here, and thank you!
Dorien is everything we want in a vampire and more: dark, handsome, sophisticated, intelligent, rich, a leader in his community, absolutely infuriating, and by the way he’s out to revolutionize the vampire world as we know it…yes!
Cora is a brilliant university student who is struck by terminal cancer, and Dorian is her only hope for survival. She didn’t know exactly what she was signing up for when she chose a last resort one in one hundred chance for life (and let’s face it, even with all the facts, unless you’re maybe Gandhi, that’s the choice any of us would make). I relate to her, root for her, and care about her fate, which is a feat in a heroine I absolutely applaud!
The world and tribulations within Ms. Black has created is original without being utterly unrecognizable, something I very much appreciate in a fantasy tale. Basically, I’m hooked, and can’t wait to see how Cora will fight to navigate this brave new world without losing herself completely to it.
The short installment format is an interesting way to go, instead of a big long book. Each installment is a good story in of itself. The only bad part is that it leaves you wanting MORE at the end. :)
