Dark Heirloom by J. D. Brown #Review
Posted by brriske
“You’re a vampire” is so not what Ema Marx wants to hear when she wakes from a two-day coma in a cryptic yet exquisite castle in northern Finland. Unfortunately, it explains a lot. Like why she’s able to see in the dark and walk through solid objects. What she doesn’t understand is why the other vampires expect her to have all the answers. It’s their fault she turned into one of them…right?
Jalmari’s hatred for his old-man intensifies when he’s ordered to bring that troublesome girl to their castle. He has a clan to run; there’s no time for babysitting newborn vampires no matter how they were converted to their culture. But when a two-thousand-year-old premonition threatens to take the crown and his life, Jalmari sees no other choice than to take out the catalyst, Ema Marx.
Fortunately for Ema, she could also be the clan’s only savior. The race to figure out her vampiric origins is on. And maybe she’ll get the hang of the blood-drinking gig along the way
An extremely different look at vampires. Well, at least, different from what I’m used to. Vampyres are born but vampires are made. Then a young college grad suddenly becomes a vampyre. Several dozen plot twists later and I find myself wanting to know how the story continues from here. At first, I really didn’t like any of the characters, except Maria. She is definitely my favorite. Em and Jesu are growing on me, though.
As an independent reviewer for Romance Authors that Rock, this one gets four hearts for creativity and depth of character. Hopefully, the rest of the series lives up to the beginning!
