5 Sensational STARS

I originally read this book years ago when my virginal reader mind could not fully comprehend the content nor the absolute brilliance of this author's writing. Not to mention I was horribly allergic to first-person and could not at the time, understand what I was reading. But I knew one thing for absolute certainty, this was going to be a story that would stick with me for many moons to come....

Phoebe walks out on her lazy crap-head of a boyfriend and takes a

I almost don’t have words … I… wow! After I was done I thought, this here is the reason I LOVE paranormal romance!

First things first, Phoebe is angry at her boyfriend Brian. She takes a walk to cool off and finds a club, Pravus. She’s not allowed in but a stranger, Seithe, says he’s with her and they enter. She notices something different with the people in the club but decides it must be a goth club, and anyway, she’s angry and in need of a drink

I started this book blind with no preconceptions and not knowing what it was really about...which considering part of the story line is very apt!

I'm not going to lie, at first I had no clue what was going on, reading this book, I felt like there was a secret I hadn't been let in on, but I did know that I was completely hooked and loved the writing style which I found to be unique and refreshing. I have never read a book by Poppet before, this is NOT my last!

As far as paranormal books goes, this

I bought this on accident on Amazon looking for another book. I was surprised with the amount of sexuality in it. It was ok for me. It resembled too many books. Kind of cliche. A book that kept coming to mind was The Chronicles of Vladimir Tod. What made it different was the sexuality. The material was like a rip off on other books. Not feeling this.

3.5, rounded up to 4 **spoiler alert**

I'm torn on how to rate this one. At some points, I really liked this book. This is important to note, because I'm about to list a series of complaints that will make me sound like I didn't. But they were the potholes in an otherwise smooth experience. While generally enjoying the book, I had some really frustrating moments reading it.

The first came about because of the unique writing style. It uses a lot of short, clipped sentences, often consisting of a si

I didn’t expect to like Poppet’s dark fantasy erotic romance book, Seithe. It had a lot against it from the outset. First off, it is written in the present tense and those books usually tend to be pretentious and frustrating failures of an author skilled enough to write but not skilled enough to write well. Second, it is heavily erotic, and most writers of erotica have a hard time avoiding blatant pornography, essentially tossing in a lot of sex scenes and adding enough plot to try to justify th ...more

Seithe is a slice of supernatural erotica, with a creative twist on the usual ‘gothic’ myths. Phoebe is the kind of character you can relate to as a reader, and that’s what makes Seithe himself so very seductive. From their first public meeting in the gorgeously goth nightclub (which, incidentally, I would love to visit), she falls under his spell, transforming herself to meet his standards, and leading her to private games of torturous pleasure in his lair. It's all to easy to see ourselves in ...more

Seithe by Poppet is a new twist on a familiar genre. Seithe introduces the reader to Phoebe, a young woman who decides to leave her unfulfilling life behind and venture into the unknown. Entering a mysterious club called Pravus, Phoebe unwisely demands a drink; thereby putting herself in mortal and spiritual danger. As hostile men close in on her, a gorgeous stranger intervenes and marks her for his protection. What follows is a roller coaster ride of sensual delights and terrifying experiences ...more
This was one helluva mind-boggling read. I'm honestly not sure if I can wrap my brain around what I just read. This was dark supernatural erotica at it's best. You are not only thrown into the world from the POV of the main character, you are suffocated by it. Seithe is some kind of something...IDK he is just...WOW. There are no words. Phoebe is a very strong willed female and from the moment they encounter each other the chemistry is undeniably scathing. Seithe works to open up Pheobe's senses ...more
Despite the sluggish beginning, I found that once things started to develop I couldn't put it down. The religious undertones was phenomenal and well researched. I also thought that it was an interesting approach to the whole angels, demons, vampyres lore--a breath of fresh air. The supporting characters were well done and I'm interested in where some of them my go in the series. The hero (Seithe) was a bit off his rocker at first and the heroine (Phoebe) wasn't my favorite but the story itself m ...more

This book had an interesting concept & I probably would have enjoyed it a lot more but things were constantly being repeated...annoying. It was also told in the first person, which normally doesn't bother me but for some reason I didn't want to be in her head! She gave me whiplash with all her back and forth. Seithe was HOTT & I liked how he challenged all her senses. There was some religious stuff that got a bit to 'indepth' for me but overall I enjoyed the story. I will probab

This one just wasn't for me. I got tired of reading the same scene over and over. I get it, she liked the hot dark sex; but I didn't need to reread every few pages. I had to force myself to finish in hopes that there would be some excitement and there was a bit-just not enough for me to read another book. None of the characters had me cheering for them or feeling anything other than the fact that I couldn't wait to finish the book.

Dark, Sexy, and Hot!!!

Seithe is the epitome of dark fantasy erotica! Poppet's descriptive and blunt nature, make for needing a cold shower after reading the sex scenes with Seithe and Phoebe! I really liked the supernatural twist Poppet put in this one. Poppet wouldn't be Poppet without the twist's and turn's she throw's at her readers. And let's not forget about how HOT and STEAMY the men and sex are in her books!

DNF ~ I'm gonna put this away for now ... I really can't get into it and it has nothing to do with the writing style, the author is very compelling and very descriptive … but 35% of feeling, tasting, expressing, describing, teaching and learning all about our other senses ~ I think this has officially overloaded my senses :/

Strike is a ride you've forgotten you can have. Humanity has never been this sought after or exquisite. The multiple twists and pace make this an exciting read. It is an unusual romance, which would appeal to both genders, making this exceptional.

Not my style I guess. I found the story quite repetitive. It seemed like the same storyline or idea was repeated over and over but with little plot or character development. I never felt attached in any way to the characters. The religious element also got a little too ham-handed for my tastes.

Sensuous, alluring and deadly, Seithe is intriguing and written by someone with a deep understanding of the hypnotic beauty of darkness. Beautifully written, addictive and highly recommended for all lovers of dark fantasy at its darkest.

This book has received some good reviews so I decided to read it. Now that I have read it I can honestly say-don't waste your time. I'm so glad it was free. This book was really dark and hard to follow. Definitely not for me.

I am really loving Poppet's writing so far. Very different and at times dark. Seithe was by far my favorite! I look forward to reading the next in this series!

WOW! Totally NOT what I was expecting with this book! I feel like I need to go confess my sins now :)

The book starts off with Phoebe walking out on her boyfriend - He's a jerk - a slob - why does she always pick the losers? "There comes a time when you know you know if you don't put some space between yourself and him urgently, someone is going to end up damaged and broken"

Stomping down the road, she hears music - following it, curious, she follows the stairs going down.. a club?? why not - Le

Just a Few Thoughts -

Well, wasn’t this book a trip! First of all, just viewed as a paranormal alone, Seithe is very interesting, and quite unique in a number of ways. Yes, the word Vampyre is thrown out there - blood is a commodity, to be drunk, used as a medium for data transference. However, they are not stock standard Vampires. My thoughts the whole way through Seithe were of The Nephelim. Either way it’s doesn’t matter. Either way it’s a paranormal, but with so much more going on.

Totally blown away!

Almost speechless about this wonderful deliciously dark read.

I will tell you all about it when I can gather my thoughts into a more coherent form of normal.

Okay, I've slept on it and started another really good read since finishing Seithe, but I cannot get this book out of my head.

Phoebe is very pissed off at her current boyfriend when she notices a club (for the first time) and decides she needs a drink. Into Pravus she enters, totally unawares of the danger she has just p

Un pò sull'onda di Fifty Shades (ma almeno senza il mitico -ahem- bondage), devo dire che, non mi è piaciuto per niente.


All'inizio abbiamo lei che cammina vaneggiando per la strada, non si sa che le sia successo, ma dai suoi discorsi sembrerebbe qualcosa di veramente veramente brutto...lei vuole cambiare vita, è stufa di tutto, nessuno la capisce!!

I got this book as a free read on Amazon. Referred to me as a new and refreshing take on vampires, I just had to take a look. I'll admit, I expected the run of the mill romance novel, with the plucky heroine and the tortured vampiric love interest...and to an extent there is some of that in the book. But don't be fooled, this book is deeper than that. Hell, I have to give it five stars, because not only could I not put this book down, but I learned a very vital lesson that I could use in life as ...more
