I am not sure which of my daughters fostered this onto me by leaving it at the cottage -- or it may be that I picked it up from the clubhouse lending shelves during one of the Wednesday morning coffees this past summer. Note that I gave it a rating of one star; that is because thee is no way to give it a zero and have it be listed. This definitely is one of the worst books I have ever read, and it comes to me as a great shock that Dawn Thompson has so many published books to her credit. I read i ...more

Jon Hyde-White has been infected by the bite of a vampire, Sebastian. Each night he hungers for blood, but he most not give innto the thirst or he himself will become like Sebastian. He especially wants to put the bit eon his beautiful fiance, Cassandra Trope, for she would be the sweetest blood of all.

The only hope to save him is to go through the Blood Moon ritual. To do this they must travel to the Carpathian Mountains. Having no understanding how what is happening to Jon, they are blessed w

I read this book last year and did not recall the name of it. I was considering reading another book by Dawn Thompson when I discovered this one and the second one of this series. Ms. Thompson has passed on but her work was excellent. This is not a typical romance and should not be read at night. Extremely dark and creepy.

This book was a disappointment overall. It had some great reviews on Amazon, and that's why I bought it and ended up having to force myself to finish it. The concept was good, but I found the prose to be boring overall. I rarely have a difficult time finishing a book but this one took me a while.

The relationship between the main characters was lacking. The author didn't give me much reason as to why these two were in love with eachother. The reader is just left to take for granted that they lov

I didn't finish this because i couldn't get past what a prat Cassandra was. I even skipped ahead hoping she got better. Mostly what drove me crazy was her insistence that Jon tell her everything about what was going on, but then she didn't tell him about her 'dreams' and tricked him into feeding from her. Not a big fan. The plot seemed good and i liked Jon and Milosh but couldn't stand her.

This is a standard vampire romance with a touch of predictable suspense. An engaged couple is fighting turning vampire after being attacked by a bad vampire, and of course must fight their lust for one another along with their lust for blood. Elaborate rituals to undo their partially vampiric state ensue, complete with gypsies harboring secret knowledge they don't want to share. HEA.

Spoiler alert!: If you like a vampire romance with a lot of "He wanted her blood, her sweet precious

This novel deserves much better than fake reviews in Amazon. Unlike most paranormal "romances" - like rubbish from grotesquely overrated Sherrilyn Kenyon - this story is helped by atmospheric Gothic trappings.

Wow, read this ages (like middle school ages) ago. Was rather scadalized. I was into vampires and just bought a bunch of books that had vamoirey covers. XD

A good read. I enjoyed the plot and the characters. I would definitely recommend this book to my friends.
Nov 15, 2011 Cookiemakermom rated it liked it
Boring in the beginning, I actually stopped reading and went on to something else, but I did come back to it a few weeks later. I got more into it the second try. It was ok. Good concept but the writing and relationships were not very thorough, always making me feel like something was missing. I kept reading hoping the voids would be filled, but the writing style never really improved. It just didn't flow well and believability within the story was not strong or consistent. I liked it well enoug ...more

Finally, finished this book. This read took me forever, atleast it felt like it. The worse part for me was the fact that the story took place in England, the year.....1811. I just couldn't get into it and didn't follow it very well. Plus the two main characters, Jon and Cassandra were just a bit wishy-washy and whiney for me. Not much else to say but will add I did have one part that I actually enjoyed. The first time Cassandra (a vampir) shape-shifted it was into a tiny little kitten. I giggled ...more

I almost quit reading it, as the book begins with a confusing story. But I stuck it out and ended up loving it. The scenario differs from most of this genre (vampires) in that the initial "infection" may not lead to total involvement. The key characters, a young couple both infected by an evil vampire of much strength, who struggle through the unknown to arrive in the Carpathian Mountains, where they find a kind of relief - still vampir but not undead, now committed to hunting those who have pas ...more

I didn't finish reading this book. My main issue was the author's repetitiveness. She says one thing through one character, then repeats that same thing with another character, and then repeats it again from a different character. I remember yelling at the book, "I know that already get on with the story!" I didn't get on with this story at all!
Feb 01, 2012 Christine rated it really liked it
Desrves much better than infamy over fake reviews in Amazon. Unlike other reviewer in that place, I found this better than quite anemic books by Nora Roberts or Kresley Cole. Like the cover, this is gorgeously Romantic and Gothic setting-wise, but on the downside, writing lacks "wow" effect of some real 19th century vampire classics. 3,5/5.
Dec 31, 2009 Dorsi rated it it was ok
This was an okay fast read for me. Not bad, but not great either. It was very easy to follow as there were very few characters. Typical unremarkable vampire love story. The characters & story line were average & not very memorable. Good beach read. The cover is awesome and the best thing about this book!

This one was okay but I found myself skipping sections to be done. It was mostly about a man and woman being turned into vampires. They are on a quest to stop it.They travel to Moldavia to a secret brotherhood to participate in an ancient ritual that they hope will reverse the curse.

Horrible failed attempt to write a Victorian thriller. Remote voice served only to further flatten the two-D characters. Just awful.

Having a hard time getting into this one, maybe later, when I'm in a different mood it will be better.
