Kingdom of the Damned
by Tricia Copeland was a fast moving, dark , unique engaging read that had me hooked from start to finish.

My first read by this author and this series I didn't know what I was getting myself into. I have to say I quite enjoyed this dark, heart breaking, feels crushing read through time, centuries and not giving in.

This is was something, and now I have to go back and read the other books cause this book seemed like a filler. Not that it was full of filler, but it had filler

Kingdom of the Damned: Provocation is the prelude to the Kingdom Journals by Tricia Copeland. It is a paranormal fantasy full of vampires, witches, history, drama, suspense, adventure and discovery. This book is so wonderfully descriptive and vividly detailed, bringing every scene to life before my eyes. The imagery is superb. Ms. Copeland is a fantastic author who delivers a complex and captivating story- I loved how she combined some history with fantasy and made it entirely believable.

I received a free copy of this book and opted to post a review.

For those of you who are hoping that the storyline of this series would progress, I'm sorry to say that you're going to have wait for the next book in the series. Okay, I'm not really sorry because I love character development and this book has it in spades. The setting and characters are downright compelling! It's an incredibly diverse group of characters and the setting changes frequently as Anne travels through different continent

This book spans four centuries. It takes us on a trip from the 1500’s to present day. It was like taking a trip through history through the eyes of a vampire. This is Anne’s story. In 1557, the Edict of Compiegne allowed the witches, dressed in the cloth of the church, to hunt and kill vampires. Anne survived persecution with the help of a friend. She grows up in London and at the age of seventeen, devastation hits her again. Instead of becoming an

Let me just start with the gorgeous cover of this book! I adore it, and it lured me in before I even read the synopsis. I have read Tricia Copeland’s work before but I think this has by far become my favorite novel of hers yet. I think the paranormal genera is her strong suit, and I am dying to get my hands on the remainder of this series as it is released. This is the introduction or prelude so to speak of the Kingdom Journals and really sets everything up for the reader. I love when an author ...more

Kingdom of the Damned is a prelude to the Kingdom Journals series. It can be read as a standalone.

It took a couple of chapters for me to get into the writing style, but once I got into the flow it was great. I like the different perspective this story takes on. Usually when you look back in history, you think about witches being persecuted, but here it is the witches who are after the vampires. I also found the more unique way of looking at vampire culture interesting.

Another aspect of the story

Kingdom of the Damned put a while new twist on vampires. The story was a little long winded but you get so many details. Anne truly believed her cause and grew up to be an amazing leader. She suffered so much and yet hated no one. She traveled the world trying to understand and learn very tribes culture and reasons. The times that she lived through. Seeing and experiencing different moments in our history. The end I did not see coming and then to

I have read a few books by this author now but I have to say I think is my favourite by far. From the very first page I was immersed into the story. The characters and the plot developed well the deeper I got into the story. It has definitely set me up for the rest of the series. I love the descriptions that the author uses; she is really good at world building. I really liked the time period that they story took place in too, I love historical roman

Kingdom of the Damned contained several areas where the book seemed to drag BUT it also included many moments that peaked my interest and had me curious to see where Anne’s journey would take her next.

During her globetrotting adventure, a woman of ONE became a leader of many. She aspired to bring peace to all – vampires, witches and humans. During her ambitious endeavor, she fought many battles. She lost many dear friends and loves.

Despite everything, her cause stayed true.

Even though Kingdom of

Kingdom of the Damned: Provocation (Kingdom Journals) By Tricia Copeland. This book was great with a main character I feel readers can connect with and root for. I’m not always in the mood for a paranormal type story but this one immediately hooked my attention and kept it until the very end. The bond that the characters have is strong and inspiring. It’s a well written story and paced nicely never feeling rushed or dragging on. The author does a wonderful job of taking on the paranormal world a ...more

Kingdom of the Damned: Provocation (Kingdom Journals) by Tricia Copeland

This interesting novel focus on the story of Anne. It provides so much detail about this female vampire and it is amazing to see how she changes over time. She is such a strong leader and I really enjoyed her character and story. She crosses paths with so many individuals and is able to recover from horrible losses such as the loss of her mate early on in life. I really felt that her story was easy to follow and it was put

I love reading Paranormal / Fantasy books. So, when the opportunity arose to read Kingdom of the Damned by Tricia Copeland, of course I jumped on it. It has all of the paranormal elements that I like to get lost with.

Vampires? Check. Witches? Check. Hunting? Check.

I have to say that the author did impress me with her ability to weave this story and captivate my attention. I literally sat on the edge of my seat, wondering who I was going to be rooting for. This book and it’s storyline was defin

I am totally in love as I so love vampire books. I love to read new authors and get their takes on

an added bonus.

The chemistry between Anne and Lucas is just so electric. I could just feel the emotions coming off

This is not my first book by this author but it is my favorite so far. This book is a paranormal story that has witches, vampires and more in it. It pulled me in right from the beginning and I couldn't wait to see what would happen next. The characters are connectable and lovable. My favorite character is Anne, she is strong and independent. I enjoyed watching her grow throughout the story. I highly recommend this book.

I loved this book from beginning to end.
Ann was an awesome character. She found love and lost loves. I can't believe how she made it through each one.
I would enjoy reading more of Ann's story with her new love that is a secret in it's own.
I won't give away any spoilers for the ending. If anyone is interested in what's happening they have to read the book.

This was a FANTASTIC prequel of the Kingdom series. I am one who prefers the time taken to build a story, to learn of the past, how things came to be, and this tale delivered! Granted, there were moments that jumped too fast for my taste, but I do understand the reasons why for it. I personally wouldn’t have minded this novel to be longer either to accommodate it. Either way, I very much enjoyed this and now I can enjoy the others in this series more now that I have a better grasp of the “past” ...more

I had two problems with this book. 1. It dragged on a bit in the middle then sped up to the point where it was almost disorienting. And it was kind of repetitive in some of the scenes. You had romance, travel, romance, travel and it didn't really pick up until the last chunk. But other wise, I really enjoyed the complexity and rawness of the characters and the story. I've never seen vampires and witches being written like this, which was extremely enjoyable to read about.
