On special offer for kindle I picked this up for only £1.99 and it seemed just my thing. The blurb suggests a Gothic romance, dark and mysterious. Clues to the nature of the novel came thick and fast, the initial male character being, square jawed, muscled and nigh on perfect for a bodice ripper. The female lacking depth and rather vapid. Still I persevered, after all Dorian Gray was handsome and Nina Harker somewhat vapid yet great characters. Alas things did not improve for me in fact things grew worse with each passage until finally I laid the book aside and sought something more suitable to my taste.
I suspect my real problem with this book is the blurb suggesting it to be something that it is not. Were I looking for a YA paranormal romance then this may have ticked all the boxes. The writing is good, the story carries you along, it seems well paced and put together. I have given the novel only two stars but please do not let my review put you off reading this. My review is based solely upon what I was expecting compared with what I read. I suspect that if you enjoy paranormal romance then this could well be the book for you.
