I received a copy of this book in exchange for an unbiased review. No other consideration was offered, expected or received.

I know – you're thinking "Another vampire story?!?!" When I originally read the book description, I felt the same way. I actually had to think long and hard about whether I wanted to be part of this blog tour because, though I love vampires, there are too many out there that are more Twilight than blood thirsty evil creatures and blood thirsty creatures are the vampires I l

I'll admit, based on the name I wasn't sure what to think and no, I didn't read the cover to find out. I was pleasantly surprised to realize I was reading a story about a group of sisters who were witches...very Charmed like, and I loved that show. Some have compared it to the Twilight series, and though it does remind me somewhat of that, it is different enough to be interesting all on its own.

I have to admit that paranormal is usually my thing. I love all witches, warlocks, werewolves, vampires. You name it! I like that all the characters had their own personalities, but sometimes there were just too many that I would get them confused and the names would be spelled a couple different ways. The storyline was excellent, however, and so if you could get passed what I would say to be a proofreading glitch for the publisher, than I say that you will really enjoy the story.

After a bit of a slow-ish start, this book really took off. It is the story of four powerful witches who get caught up against their will in a Vampire Civil War that’s been raging for centuries. The eldest witch, Taralie, and leader of the coven, is captured and suffers a horrific ordeal before finally escaping. Her escape, however, causes additional unforeseen problems that force Tara and her sisters into hiding. Fortuitously, they meet a powerful trio of vampires who are also trying to evade d ...more

How could I resist a story starring four sisters, and they’re witches. At least, in the beginning they all are. Then Taralie gets kidnapped and turned by some vampires with their own agenda.

When the sisters turn to The Twelve, the decision makers for the Milunfran, its ordered that they kill Taralie. Being halfings, the purebloods don’t much care for them and this comes as no surprise. This is the thanks they get after banishing all sorts of evil beings, protecting humans from evil.

This book was awesome and I had a great time reading it. It was a great mix between witches and vampires that really put some funk into the story. In the beginning I felt myself thinking of The Charmed sisters since some of the sisters powers where alike. But I really enjoyed it anyway so it was not a bad thing.


In the beginning of the story Taralie gets kidnapped by a bunch of vampires who seems insane and treets her like their queen or something. This is only because she has something they want

A story that is completely different from the other stories out there. It's about a coven of witches turned into wanted vampires. The four women are part of a witch heritage that they were completely unaware of until they were forced to seek refuge with their father. Their mother died during childbirth of the youngest two. She was the witch and after her passing, their father had no way to teach them how to be witches. He didn't worry about it too much due to their powers being blocked. As they ...more

Tara and her sisters have fought to keep humans safe from monsters for 4 years, ever since they found out they were witches. They have all gone through so much but none of their training prepaired them for vampires to come in and just take Tara and then turn her. Not knowing what to do they go to their superiours to find answers and instead are nearly killed by those who tought them everything. Now on top of that the vampires who turned her want her for something and will stop at nothin

Taralie and her 3 sisters are a strong coven, they been blessed with all 4 elements, they banish magical creatures next to their own jobs and have a good life, so they think.
Till one day Tara is kidnapped and she can't place what they are, till one bites her and force herself to drink his blood. Her three sisters are forced into killing her by the twelve of the Milunfran order.
Not willing to do that they run and all decide that Tara needs to turn them too. They however never trained by any vampi

This was an interesting read. I was pulled into the story of Taralie and her sisters- witches who had their powers thrust upon them suddenly, after growing up unaware. Take a halfling witch, make her into a vampire and oh my the things that will happen! While on the run from the Milunfran (witch police?!), they find refuge with 3 hot vampire guys, because naturally vampire guys are pretty much always hot, aren't they? There's a bit of romance while the two groups team up to fight the vampire gov ...more

The Golden Apple of Discord is the first book in the Discord Trilogy. It begins with four sisters who are all powerful witches. One day Taralie is kidnapped from their home and turned into a vampire. The relationship of these sisters is sometimes intense and other times downright funny. The character development in this book is AWESOME! These girls are strong little cookies and by goodness they know what "family" is all about and stand by each other even when things are tough. There is a bit of ...more

This book was a fun easy read. As I read I noticed several errors. One of the characters is named Sarah and they switch between spellings. And like other readers have said it's got a lot of similarities to other stories. I enjoyed it though because while it starts a little rough it was an enjoyable read and I found myself wrapped up in it. I bought it on a recommendation of a friend who knows the author and told me the back story a little bit. I can honestly say i look forward to the next book. ...more

Lauren pens "The Golden Apple of Discord" in a plot filled with vampires, witches, and romance with a touch of humor. Her characters were strong and believable with good interaction and emotion between them. I was impressed with how the author interwove fantasy with history. A truly interesting and captivating read that should be on all fantasy lovers TBR list.

This review is based on a complimentary copy from the author which was provided for an honest review.

This book creates a world that's fun to walk around in. The interaction between the characters is funny, introspective, and intense. I love how the characters don't just wait for life to happen to them, they take action! The plot never stalls and the chapter endings make it impossible to put down! There's something for everyone here, even guys into action books. Imagine a cross between Charlie's Angles and Avengers, it's that good.

With a tone very different from most paranormal romances, Discord delivers a realistic (as realistic as vampires and witches get) view on what happens when ruthless powerful vampires hunt you. Although we've got fantasy elements, there are many times you forget the characters are vampires.

A good blend of X-men, Hunger Games, and Dune; this book has something for everyone.

This book was recommended to me by my Mom and I am happy she did. It puts a twist on the typical Vampire and Witch books. I fell in love with all of the characters especially the 4 Witches and there 3 Vampire mates. The book kept me wanting more with every flip of the page with all of its twists and turns. I just couldn't put it down.
I recommend this book for all book lovers.

Wow, confusion, chaos, poorly written. Even the apple cover is a bit of a Twilight rip off, many elements are taken from other books. I would not use this book for toilet paper. Nothing original or cohesive about this book.

I tried to read this, but there were too many characters doing too many things. . . it just felt too chaotic. (And not in the good way.) 0 stars.
