Review: Silver In The Moonlight
I was given a free ARC of this book by the author in exchange for a honest review. This is an author I found and reached out to from NetGalley. (and I am so glad I did!)
👿Its Vampire book review time....gather round my lovelies!
I love reading paranormal romances but especially in the Vampire genre. So I was really excited to read this author for the first time. I was down with the flu and thought this would be a welcome distraction but I was a little more under the weather than I thought so getting started was delayed. Once I got into the book I flew through it. So you will too.
Silver In The Moonlight
Yay! A Vampire book review!
This my lovelies, was a different experience in the vampire genre. First off this book contains two stories. The first reads more like a YA romance book and the second is definitely in the new adult genre, (dare I say skates into the erotic) which I am perfectly fine with.
Reading these two books together felt like eating a sweet candy with a decadentsurprise in the middle.
The first book, Shadows in the Moonlight by author Rita Ames was a sweet coming of age romance between a witch Kora and a vampire Etienne and of course as luck would have it there is another paranormal antagonist, Galen, to complicate the balance. Galen gives the story just a touch of darkness. I really enjoyed this light read. The characters are relate-able and well described. The story moves at a good pace.
Kora finds an instant connection with Etienne and their relationship turns out to be more special than they could have hoped. Poor Kora is continuously plagued by Galen whom she cannot see, but feels. His evilness, as she grows up, comes to be accepted as a part of her life. You have the sense of his bearing down, a kind of impending doom as it were, on the story as he travels ever closer to her. This story has loss, adventure, magic and love.
To my surprise, the story ends in a bit of a cliffhanger so I am anxiously waiting for the next installment. (Lucky for me author Rita Ames has sent me another one of her works to keep me occupied until she gets back to book two in this series.)
I give this story 5 stars ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
The second book, Drunk on Silver by author Raven Delehanty was an exciting short story full of action, adventure and passion. Vampire Silver falls quickly for innocent Jasmine and quickly sees his life and hers change. It is sexually charged, fast paced and has a lovely HEA. I really enjoyed the story and all the action. I read it in one sitting. However there seemed to be some editing issues throughout. not really enough to detract from the story but hopefully addressed in later writings. I look forward to reading more by this author.
I give this story 4 stars. ⭐⭐⭐⭐
