Deamhan have survived by remaining hidden in the shadows. Ramanga, Lamia, Metusba, and Lugat have been overshadowed by what humans know as the modern vampire. But what if vampires aren’t the real threat?
One woman’s search for her mother who disappeared without a trace on the streets of Minneapolis takes her into the precarious world of Deamhan, psychic vampires who rule the underground nightlife in the city’s most darkest corners.
She gains the trust of the only other human familiar with the Deamhan lifestyle. With his help she finds not only can the Deamhan not be trusted but it s her own father, president of a ruthless organization of researchers, who has diabolically maintained that distrust.
The author had created wonderfully a new paranormal race, that resembles vampires but with a twist. This is a very action packed and thrilling story full of drama, danger and mystery. Even though the story here is about vampires like creatures, this is no ordinary vampire story and you will not see here the elements of a regular vampire we all know too well from movies and books. Here they are more powerful and more unique.
The characters are well written and are so likable, that you will be hooked fast to their story and adventures. The characters bring the story to a new level, as if you are one of them. The character’s point of view changed but in a very compelling way that makes the story even more beautiful. Veronica is such a wonderful and strong character; she is by far my favorite.
There are some sex scenes, but for me I didn’t see any point to them as the story could perfectly do without.
The author writes very charmingly, her details are so vivid and brings her world and characters into life so perfectly, that you can easily see the characters and their life. The world building, the characters and the story itself is well thought off and masterfully written.
At first I didn’t get into the story as fast as I thought I would, but it changed fast. The world at first is hard to grasps, but if you don’t think too much about it and accept the rules of the creatures, the reading will be must faster. After the first few chapters, I was deep into the story and I was hooked completely. From there on it was a fast pace read.
The end is a bit off for me, there were so many things I wanted to know more and didn’t get the answers. I need answers! I think it’s because there is (or might be) another book to this series and I hate waiting for the second book to come out, lol. I hope there will be more books ((crossing fingers)).
The blurb was just right. After reading it, I wanted to know more and more about this world and about Deamhans. It was not too reviling, just the way I like it and really told the story in a vague way. Letting you know just enough so you’ll want to know more.
The cover art is just so gorgeous, stunning.
Opening Line: Veronica Austin stood in line behind a tall woman with long black hair, her blonde roots clearly visible in the streetlight brightening the corner.
Highlights: I love the story the author weaved and the characters really had made the read a great one.
Lowlights: There were a lot of questions unanswered, but I hope to get more answers in the second book.
“Remy tilted his head to sniff the air. “I love that smell.” He turned his head to look over his shoulder. “The smell of fear.”
“Don’t confuse my act of kindness to be in your favor.”
“Loved? A Deamhan couldn’t love? Impossible. Yet she wanted to know more.”
Final Thoughts: For me it was a wonderful read and even though it far from my comfort zone of books, I still loved it a lot.
