Dark Awakening by Kendra Leigh Castle (thoughts)
There is nothing better than a good paranormal romance especially one written by this author. I was completely enchanted with this book from the first page until the last. Tynan is one of those tortured heroes that you can't help but love and root for. I wanted to see him happy and in love, and Lily Quinn was the perfect match for him. The chemistry between these two easily heated up the pages and had me cheering for them as a couple. The storyline was fresh and original and I especially enjoyed the idea of Lucy being a Seer. It was interesting to see some of the skills that she possessed and I'm guessing that we will see her develop more in future books in this series. I'm just hoping that each book has a couple with a hot relationship like these two did. Another thing that I appreciated with this book was the different "castes" or groups of vampires. Tynan was a part of a group that was considered to be below other vampires which is one of the reasons that he was trying to make things better for his kind. I really liked that about it him, it just endeared him to me all the more. I found the ending of the book to be a strong finish even though it is part of a series which I really appreciated! I get frustrated sometimes when authors leave too much open for the next book but luckily that didn't happen here.
What else to say about this book other than I loved it? It was a fast paced read, I didn't want to set it down, and I wanted to read more about the characters after I was finished. I'm eager to see what happens in the next book of this series. In fact, I've already got it loaded onto my Kindle ready to go. I'm a huge fan of this author and would definitely recommend this book to fans of paranormal romance. If you haven't tried this author yet I would also recommend her MacInnes Werewolf trilogy.
Bottom Line: A must read author in my opinion! And this book just serves to reinforce that!
Disclosure: I checked this book out from my local library!
