Borrwoed idea but the woman can write - If you like J.R. Ward check this one out!
am 1. Juni 2007
The idea to this new vampire series is not new. In fact, it has quite some similarities with J.R. Ward's Black Dagger Brotherhood. Vampires are a whole different race, unable to "turn" humans. Evil enemies - in this case vampires who have fallen to Bloodlust and are now Rogues - are out to destroy the good Breed vampires, who live peacefully in small communities called Darkhaven. And a group of seven vampire warriors, sworn to protect their race, live together in a compound, an old mansion, on the outskirts of town. Sounds familiar? You bet.
But contrary to a lot of the new vampire/paranormal series popping up by the dozens lately, this one managed to grab my attention with a believable plot and characters that felt real. It is not yet in the league of J. R. Ward. The dialogue is not as cool, the sex not as hot, the characters are not as dark and intriguing, and the scenes not as compelling as in the Brotherhood books. But Lara Adrian is well on her way to getting there, writing in her own style that captivates nonetheless!
Her story flows and her characters are grown-up people who act in a believable way. Her heroine coming to grips with the fact that vampires exist was done in a plausible manner, not overly rushed as so often seen. Little clues were strewn in from the beginning that made her acceptance of the whole thing seem natural (it only happened in the last third of the book).
All in all this was a very enjoyable read that had me glued to the pages! I'm already looking forward to the stories of the other warriors, especially Tegan, the tortured one with the dark past (aka Sherrilyn Kenyons Zarek or J.R. Wards Zhsadist). But Rio seems a very interesting candidate, too (to say why would be a huge spoiler because of something that happens in the book). So go and grab your own copy and find out for yourself!
