I am scratching my head wondering about all the 5 stars I saw when I first purchased this book. I just went back and looked, and many of them were beta readers, so that explains some.

It's my understanding that this is the first book for this author, and for that I commend May. It can't be easy to put your self out there for the first time. So I'm going to try to make this moderately productive instead of ranting.....

The story had a good set up and good background. That part was fine. Even a goo

I have to rate the book, my first book :), because it's mine and I love it. It makes me so happy. I can't wait for all to read Christian and Zander's story. I've very proud of myself, it's not conceited, it's a big accomplishment. I'm enjoying every minute of this. <3 Thank you to everyone for their support!!! all your opinions, good or bad, means everything.

Dear author,

Considering you are so lucky I read this book after Silver & Black.
Cuz if not, your S&B will ended at 2 or maybe 1 star from me.

Why ?


Reading this book is like reading paranormal version of "Silver & Black".

No kidding ?

You'll find similarities between the two, like...

I was very lucky this author gave me the opportunity to beta for this book.

From the very beginning I was very intrigued and pulled in to Zander and Christians love story. Christian Bowman had a very tragic childhood and Zander is a blind vampire. I don’t want to say too much and give this story away because the twist and turns to this story are what made it so good. What I will say Christian is a very strong willed human that is willing

My first review book of 2015 and a new to me author has blown me away. I love a good Vampire story and let me tell you this was a really good one! If I ever had to describe my ideal perfect, sexy, possessive vamp it would be Zander!

This is a tale of past and present that the author has intertwined perfectly. It is a tale of true and lasting love that has to wait for its chance to exist and when finally it does it is all consuming.

I met Tyler on Twitter about a year ago and have followed her fan-fiction. When she told me she was writing her first novel, I was thrilled for her. Being new to the genre(m/m), she introduced me to amazon and Goodreads and life outside of the fan-fiction world. I am so glad she did because my world has been crazy busy with all the great reads lately.

DNF at 43% This book left me wondering why it got close to average 4 stars with many people gave it five stars. This book is certainly not working for me on so many levels.

The dialogues... I usually complain that authors write sex scenes to pad out their books or MCs have sex instead of communicate to avoid having to write dialogues and really getting the MCs to know each other instead of reading minds. But this book is overflown with dialogues. Dialogues that felt off for me in the way that I c

I was fortunate to beta read this wonderful book. It's difficult to believe this is Ms Mays first book.

Zander is a sweet loving blind vampire. He is hot and a bit Alpha. Christian is a lovely young man who at a very young age lost his parents to a tragic accident. These two men find each other through their work environment and well, the sparks and sexual chemistry are through the roof.

This is one thrilling roller coaster paranormal story. But there is alot more going on than a love story betw

I must say this is like no other Vampire love story you will ever read. It's gripping and beautiful and dark, but in a way that's real to the nature of the beast. I fell in love with the story and the characters, even one's who you want to cheerfully choke are done in a manner that lend nothing but strength and substance to the story.

I look forward to many more books from this author and would recommend Angel of Darkness to anyone looking for an incredibly against the odds vampire romance.

I was fortunate enough to be given the opportunity to read this before release - and what a read it was!
This is so much more than a Vampire love story. I was hooked from the beginning, but to me the second part of the story is where I was truly captivated. I was on the edge of my seat wondering just where the story would go, and I was not disappointed.
You will love Christian and Zander, and if you are anything like me, you are hoping we get more of Billy in future books!

Vampire or Paranormal story is not my thing. I picked this up just because of the gorgeous cover.

I was skeptical because of all those 4 and 5* rating from the people who got a free copy of the book.
But I must say that I really enjoyed the story, it's a true page turner. Maybe just because I loved my MC who was dark, dangerous, mysterious and handsome. :-)

I wonder what a shitty work all the beta readers have done because there were quite a lot of editing mistakes.

*This book was given to me by the author in exchange for an honest review*

A vampire and a human falling in love is nothing new so unless you have something unique to offer and have good twists, it may not get the recognition it deserves. Thankfully this book has both. Angel of Darkness is about a 21 year old man named Christian who works as a tour guide in a vampire tourist show. When Christian was young, he and his parents were in a car accident where his parents unfortunately didn’t make it bu

First of all, I got to say I hadn’t read a vampire story in years and Paranormal is not what I usually read, however, I really enjoyed this foray into the genre very much.

The first part of the story dragged a bit, there was a lot of information as the author set up the rest of the story and I wasn’t too certain I’d love Zander, the blind vampire, all that much. He was a more than a bit controlling, possessive, jealous, kind of

A review by The Blogger Girls.

Christian is a young guy, on his own since his parents’ death at an early age. He finds out pretty quickly in the story that not only are vampires real, but that he works for one. His eyes are opened pretty quickly after that.

Zander is not just a sexy vampire, he’s a blind sexy vampire, who also happens to be the head vampire. He’s also not like other vamps in that he has been biding his time until his soul mate attains the right age. That soul mate is Christian, wh

Two things drew me to this title. First, hearing positive reviews of a first novel always piques my interest. Second, several reviews opened with the statement that readers enjoyed the story, despite not being overly interested in paranormal romances or vampire characters, which to me is an indicator of some creativity and cleverness from the author.

I was pleased on both accounts. The chemistry between Zander and Christian meant that the romance sizzled, the tempers clashed, and the relationship

Tyler May has given us yet another lovable couple! I really liked both Zander and Christian and cannot wait to read more about them and the other characters that were introduced in this story. A fast-paced, easy read, Angel of Darkness is full of love, laughter, steamy scenes, suspense and danger! What more can a reader ask for?
Christian finds his slightly older but devilishly handsome boss undeniably attractive despite the fact that the man is blind. Little does he know that Zander finds him j

Five fanfreakingtastic stars!

You wanted an honest review, this is it!

The idea of reading a book about vampires, let alone gay vampires, left my kinda sceptical. I love gay romance but vampires have always been a no-interest for me. Yeah I know it's fantasy fiction, still I could never get into the whole blood sucking for pleasure deal. Then I came across the blurb for Tyler's book. A blind vampire? A blind gay vampire? Now there was a concept I could sink my teeth into. (pun intended lol)

I have had the good option to read this book before publication, and I have to report that for her first book not many Authors I have read could meet this standard.

I have really enjoyed the storyline and charactors that much, I read the book three times just to be sure that I was reading the storyline straight and not mixing it with other ebooks I have read. I am pleased to report that I wasn't. The story is full of suspense and mystery and in one part it actually made

I really enjoyed this, I did not get a free copy, nor was I a beta reader. The story was engaging and the characters interesting. It was romantic and the sex scenes were hot! Yes there were a few mistakes, but I was so involved in the story that I did not notice them, I often find myself removed from a story because I can't get over the myriad of mistakes, but I did not find that with this book.

I recommend this book to others who enjoy a good mm romance and I can't wait for the sequel about Bill

For some reason I don't understand, I found the beginning of the book slow going. I had a hard time getting into it. But I am glad for my persistence, because after the second or third chapter I was sucked in. Not just your average vampire meets boy story; there is demonic possession, revenge, a dark magic worker, and reincarnation. There was also a moment that to me seemed Harry Potter inspired where deceased relatives showed up to help, and show their love and support for one of the mc's. I re ...more

I was intrigued with this story from the first chapter. The plot is familiar to me at first, but the twist will keep you guessing what would happen next and who is trustworthy.I love the romance and chemistry between the two main characters and I love group of secondary characters too. Hoping that they get stories too. With a mystery to solve, the tensions are high but not to worry there are comedic moments that I think bring balance to the story. There is a happy ending with more to come.
