E-book gifted by author for review

Judgement of Souls is a surprising new gem in the genre of vampire fiction. I absolutely enjoyed every page of this tale. I have been a fan of the vampire novel for some years now, and it is always a delight to see a fresh tale such as this one to whet the appetite of the legion of fans out there.

The characters were beautifully written and the descriptions faultless, I could see influences of such tales as Underworld and Blade woven through the story which only

Looking for a fast paced Vampire story? Well you are in luck, because that is what this book is. It starts off with a female vampire named Rachel. She is strong, can fly, beautiful and like every other vampire, lusts for blood. Her life mission was to retrieve a stolen book which holds powers to resurrect one of the first vampires to this world who is highly deadly and wants nothing but to wipe out the human race. The book was supposed to be guarded by her parents, but they failed their duty and ...more

I received this book in return for my honest opinion and I wasn't disappointed. What a fantastic read!

The story is fast paced and moves along quickly with no over descriptive or filler parts. It stays on track and keeps you turning the pages. I loved that it was set in Wales, UK, such a refreshing change from America where all the super natural beings seem to prefer to reside these days. The characters are well rounded with a plot that will keep you interested from start to finish. This book has

I tried. I really tried, but this book isn't for me. I just didn't get to like any of the characters. I couldn't connect with them somehow. :(
That's why, after months of picking this book up over and over again, to DNF it.
Kitty Muse Book Reviews
It should have been the crowning point of Rachel’s young life: the day she entered into the existence of the undead. Her parents were so proud; after all, as the keepers of the Book that held their fate in its pages, they were especially blessed to have been parents of a mortal child.

First, the Embrace, and then a sleep of a month’s time while she adapted to becoming a vampire, then the happiness of living with all she knew for all time. But that is not how it works out.

She wakes to find her

Today's review is on Judgment of Souls by Margarita Felices

In a strange twist of writing, Judgment of Souls is the third book in this new and fast-paced vampire series. The author's knowledge about the "real life" places she uses in the story is very impressive, and the way she describes the the world around her characters makes you feel as if you are sitting in the front row watching everything happen around you. (I could swear I could feel the smoothness of the red velvet curtains and smell

What is the book about?

Rachel has a beautiful young face, but she's really a vampire who is centuries old with amazing strength and the ability to fly. She is in search of a book that holds the power to bring the first vampire back to life, the same book that her parents lost and were severely punished for.

The book was stolen by a older rogue vampire named Max who Rachel used to love, but now she's more interested in killing him.

Rachel hangs out at a local goth club in Cardiff Wales where she

Rating: 7.0/10.0

Review: In a time where many writers are attempting to romanticize vampires and sensationalize them for our younger generations, author Margarita Felices’ actually crafts an old-fashioned Gothic Horror story in her latest book, “Judgement of Souls”. Her work stays true to the ideas and plots that first brought these creatures to light long ago when Bram Stoker captured the public’s imagination with his writing, and forced the vampire out from the dark recesses of our subconscious

Rachel is a vampire. After being turned, she was betrayed by someone she trusted and her parents were banished from the coven. She sets out to make things right and clear their names. Lonely and wandering on Halloween, she enters a club and meets the gorgeous mortal, Daniel, who happens to have something she has been searching for.

I wish the relationship between Rachel and Daniel would have been a little more established. I needed to see a bit more romance and interaction between them in the

Judgement of Souls is an interesting entry in the vampire genre. I found the book interesting and well written but there really wasn't anything deeply appealing or anything unique about the book but that may be because the genre has been so heavily inundated in the past several years. The main character, Rachel was born human from two parents who were both vampires. She was turned, by choice when she was 16, on the same day when he parents, guardians of the most valuable vampire text, The Book ...more

This book didn't really set off any sparks for me even though it was written well. I just couldn't lose myself in the story like I wanted too. I just kept thinking there was more to the storyline other than what I read. Rachel was really two dimensional for me, she didn't seem to have much passion for life. Maybe being a vampire and alive for centuries took that from her. It seemed like Daniel had more going for him than Rachel, he seemed to be the spark but she kind of put him off. It took ...more

Judgement of Souls, Kiss at Dawn by Margarita Felices

I enjoyed reading this excellent story. This vampire world is a little different but very interesting. I liked how history was woven into the story. I loved the characters, flaws and all. The interaction between and among the characters both mortal and immortal was a major factor in how much I like this story.

The romance played an integral part to this story but did not overwhelm it. There were a few editing issues but not enough to annoy me

I really enjoyed this gothic tale with a twist, the story was well written and the characters were great to read. I loved the idea of Rachel’s history and her past and the possibility of a future with Daniel, it was lovely to read.

Plenty of excitement to keep you going, all in all a great read.

Can an entire vampire population be destroyed?

The vampire elders called to order a hasty and secret meeting. The grim reality of what they were facing was that their entire vampire existence was on the verge of being endangered. There was an evil so monumental and savage threatening them that it could very well destroy or change them forever. And this group of elder vampires knew precisely who had set them up for their demise. It was Max, one of their own elders, an ancient and mighty vampire.

Judgement of Souls - Margarita Felices

Upon starting this book I was sweating bullets. The introduction was eerily similar to my own work. Great Authors think alike, right? I was happily surprised when the direction of the story veered in a totally different direction than my own.

Margarita Felices writes a descriptive, fast paced story without any filler. The story its self was very condensed, flowing from one important scene to the next. This book would have gained it's 5th star if the author

Judgement of Souls was a good story, but frustrated me with all the grammatical errors. There were random words in some places and a lack of words in others that made a lot of the sentences illegible. It needs to be proofread again and then it will be an amazing book.

I am intrigued by Judgment of Souls. Rachel, a vampire, is one of the main characters of the story. She struggles to find a balance between obligations and personal interest when she discovers her love interest Daniel is unknowingly the only person standing between her and her ability to fix an unfortunate event from her past.
I enjoyed the characters in the story and found the plot to be unique and interesting. So many supernatural stories seem to have similar characteristics, and follow a
What a charming story. “Judgment of Souls” is a charming love story with a twist. It is more than your typical paranormal vampire tale about love, death, the fate of the world, an evil vampire bent on taking over the world. Oh it has all those elements, gothic horror, and a wonderfully worded tale, but it transcends all of these genre’s to create a truly unique and delightful story.
Initially I was worried as I typically do not like horror stories, but this story was not your typical horror
InD'tale Magazine

Although this gothic thriller contains an oft-used plot, Felices' writing makes the reader visualize many aspects, and makes this book a happy addition to any vampire fan's bookshelf.

Read full review in the 2013 June issue of InD’tale Magazine.

Amazing writing. She has a way with words that is stirring. You will be hard pressed to find a better book out there in today's market of weak characters and simple plots. Feleces knows how to write and provides the reader with a depth that is felt and remembered as you read.

Review for JUDGEMENT OF SOULS Kiss at Dawn by Margarita Felices

By Sandy Nicholson

An exceptionally well-written and clean vampire story as I have read in recent memory. Margarita Felices vampires are interesting and likeable in their dedication to saving themselves and humanity from the evil about to be unleashed by rogue vampire Max. The locations described are exotic and lushly detailed for the reader’s understanding of the history described and enjoyment of the tale.

Rachel is a vampire who has found a man who intrigues her in every way, Daniel Moore, the local club owner has recently come into an inheritance and lives with a few friends in a mansion. The story takes place in Cardiff, England where the villain Max is on the hunt for two scrolls to tell him where an ancient book is hidden. Rachel’s goal is to beat him to it and save her parents.

The connection between Rachel and Daniel was so strong and pretty much instant! From the moment they saw each other

I received a copy of this book from the author in return for an honest review.

This is a most intriguing story. I really enjoyed it.

Rachel is an interesting character. She is a vampire on the hunt for a rogue member of her clan. I liked her spunk. She is stubborn and a bit naive, but she has good intentions, which gets her into trouble sometimes.

Daniel Moore is also an interesting character. He is a nightclub owner and the grandson of a philanthropic millionaire. I liked this character's loyalty

The story takes place in Cardiff, England (although I have never been to Cardiff I love it when books are based in my home country!) Despite the annoying format problem I had with this, it was an easy read. The story flowed and it had a good pace.

Tales of a vampire falling in love with the mortal have been told countless time, but I haven't tired of them... yet. Besides, there are a few twists in Judgement of Souls, making it different from the regular stories. Firstly, the vampire in this book
Nick Rossi
Aren't all the oldest female vampires usually depicted as the most beautiful? In Margarita Felices' Judgement of Souls, the typical portrayal of aged, female evil sticks to the vampire genre's typical convention, but injects new blood into the genre. Felices' portraiture of a female vampire protagonist attempts to subvert the genres staid conventions of gender representation with middling results.

Rachel, aforementioned protagonist, finds herself in the land of the living and in love with Daniel,
