Genre: New Adult Paranormal Romance
After I left for college, I thought I’d never see Eden again. But I found myself headed back four years later, destitute and unable to find a job anywhere else. Still, I was adamant nothing would keep me there for long.
Then I met the intoxicating Dax Allard. Copper-colored eyes, skin that emanated an exceptional heat, and a host of strange talents… It wasn’t long before I was drunk on him.
But Dax’s past was darker than mine, teeming with ancient secrets. Falling for him could cost me my life.
I had two choices: walk away or deal with the perilous consequences.
It was no choice at all.
Volume I is the compilation of five episodes of the serial novel (essentially an omnibus), and runs about 60,000 words. It is the equivalent of the first book in a trilogy of novels.
This is a compilation of Novella's in one book - some would say it represents a TV show format and it does work but unfortunately this can mean that detail is lost and there are some scenes you wish could be longer although I enjoyed the book I was left a little unsatisfied with some areas. It is very fast moving and it can be hard to keep up while still absorbing all of the relevant information.
In these books there is no suspense or wondering - it likes to hit you with the information in the UK we would say it a bit of a 'wham bam thank you mam' in some ways this is good but I prefer the wondering it keeps me glued to a book - in some parts I found it hard to give the book my full attention instead of going off to get a drink or chat with my friends.
This book does have a good storyline and although the information is given very fast it is told in a good way so I have to give the author credit for that - perhaps I am just not a Novella person unless they are an add on to a bigger series so please do read the book and let me know what you think of the pacing.
Although this is a collection of smaller stories it still does end on a cliff hanger - personally I am not sure how I feel about this - but again don't take my word for it I am a strong believer that people read books differently and not everyone enjoys the same thing.
Overall excellent idea and I really enjoyed the tension it was just the type of TV episode setting that I did not take to.
A huge fan of spooky stuff and shoes, I enjoy alternately hitting up the outlet malls and historic graveyards in Charleston, SC where I live and imbibe coffee. My husband and two small children seem not to mind when I hastily scribble novel lines on stray limbs in the absence of notepads.
Since no writer’s biography is complete without mention of her menagerie of animals, you should know I have one dog that doubles as a footstool, a second that functions as a vacuum cleaner, and a cat that ensures I never forget that my hands are, first and foremost, for pouring cat food.
