I didn't think that I would be super crazy about another vampire lore novel. As in, vampires seem a bit cliché to me, so I wasn't sure how Rokicki would make her novel stand out from all the others. Turns out she pulled it off quite nicely by focusing on explaining her lore rather than the sensuality of vampires feeding on unsuspecting humans.

The psychic vampires feed off of energy, which seemed like they reached o

The Forest House, Book One of The Ashar Prophecies, is a promising young adult paranormal fantasy from debut author Tamara Rokicki. The book adds a new twist to vampire lore while still keeping favorite mores alive.

A fresh and new way to view vampires. This book is just the beginning of an exciting new trilogy. Tamara Rokiki has established her own unique voice in the dark fantasy genre.

Hera is tired of her life spinning out of control. Her panic attacks are taking over her life. She can’t seem to get through a school day without breaking down in tears. Her older sister, Arley, used to be there for her, someone she could count on, her best friend. That all ended nearly two years ago. Arley has become angr

I liked the pacing of the book at the beginning and towards the end. There were a few parts where the author reiterated the same info she'd given in the book earlier in the plot like to the point that it was heavily noticeable and sometimes exhausting to have to read about again. Yet, even with that one little annoyance, I loved thi ...more

Suspenseful urban fantasy with characters you will become attached to and want to dive in deeper with!

What a great story! I could barely put it down! Hera's emotional ride to learning her true self is a journey not to be missed. Filled with new beginnings and dark past secrets she must make life altering decisions to save her family and friends from evil.

I absolutely love the direction this book takes. Very unique characters and book plot. I couldn't read it fast enough. And all the plot twist. This book is amazing and so not your average vampire book.

Approching maturity without a clue of the truth.

Each life has it's moments of shocking disclosures. When they are beyond anything you've been prepared for what then. How does one walk into the unknown.
