Holy. Freaking. Hotness!! 🔥🔥🔥

Told entirely from the hero's POV, we get an inside look at a man's fight against the inevitable.

It's sexy and erotic. It's forbidden and taboo. It's paranormal and otherworldly. It's bloody magnificent!! 🖤🖤🖤

Mine. My female. Dangerous thoughts. Unstoppable thoughts.

Obsidian. What can I say about this man to truly capture his awesomeness? He was honorable, noble, and loyal to a fault. When he left home as a warrior to defend his people, he left behind his brother

N. Isabelle Blanco really impressed me with this captivating read. Obsidian knows better than to succumb to his hunger for Calamity, his niece. His emotions and strenuous desires are very vivid, I was overwhelmed with his covetous desires for her. The forbidden attraction between them becomes a tangible thing, and Obsidian commits the ultimate sin when he gives in to his desires and makes love to Calamity.

This book is fast!
This book is sexy!
It is one I highly recommend to all paranormal eroti

This book was so good, so why my 3,5 * ?
Some pros and cons :

•good erotica
• a story from the heros pov was different and welcomed
•strong , sexy confident heroine,is what I crave most
• strong world building and different ideas from others vamp books I’ve read
• steamy sex scenes 😍

• being romanian and from Romania some words used by the author supposedly romanian words are very incorrect ex:
“Go on. Enjoy fucking your little curveles,” she says, using the Romanian word for whores. ”
Mg ♥ The Bookishmedialite
N. Isabelle Blanco always finds a way to grab you on page one and hold you hostage right up until the end. With Silence, she brought all the gritty fuckedupness she could manage and put it out there for us to read. This story is brutal, graphic, dark, and not for the faint of heart.

If the words: forbidden, bloody and vampires make you feel something, then you should definitely get yourself a copy of this book.

I can't wait to see what else the author has in store for these two ♥.

TBH would rather read the Bible than read about a male protagonist that has multiple orgies and threesomes throughout the entire story.

Hot. Quick. Paranormal. Taboo-ish.

Obsidian has returned to his home after five years at war. His brother is King, and he couldn’t be happier to serve his home by fighting for it. The thing is when he sees his brothers adopted daughter, Princess Calamity, he can’t help the unexplainable pull he has towards her. He knows she’s his adopted niece, and she’s just 21 compared to his two millennia of life... BUT HE WANTS HER ANYWAY! But he finds some way to barely control his attraction.

I’m pretty sure this is my first vampire read ever. (GASP!) I know, right?! But after seeing some smoking hot teasers, I knew I had to give this one a try. I loved it! It’s hot as fuck, first of all. And it’s entirely in the hero’s POV, which is my faaaavorite! It’s taboo, and angsty, and just all kinds of perfect. Whether you’re into pnr or not, you should definitely check out Silence. You won’t be disappointed!

Fast-paced, sexy (oh, so sexy) and mysterious.

Obsidian is home after a number of years away fighting for his family. He is the family fighter, master planner and killer. He is dark and brooding but has centuries of experience under his belt. What he has no experience with are the feelings he has for someone he should not.

Told completely in his POV, Obsidian battles himself and tries to find answers about the object of his obsession. There is something that he is not privy to and he wants

First I just have to say fanfuckingtastic, phenomenal, amazing, supreme, and so much more I could go on for days but this book is the BOMB! I just could not put it down. I was so engrossed in this story that the time simply got away from me and before I knew it it was 3:00 am and I was finished and the first words out of my mouth was WTF did I just read?

This book is A dark intense forbidden paranormal romance and I love it.
The tension and mystery are so strong from the beginning. Bloods, sex, ancient met modern, dark supernatural creatures, yes yes yes yes, love them all. There's also love and steaminess (the hotness is off the roof), this bookbook really got me squirming on my seat, although I wanted to slap and kick the main characters for what they did most of the time (this is what makes me can't stop reading it) I still love it nonetheless

So I have to give this book a solid 4 1/2 stars. I wanted to give this book a 5-star rating (although it does show a five star) I enjoyed this story very much. All the characters are broad; the story is exciting and intense — however, the ending. Jesus the ending killed me. N. gives us a finish that blew me away. I even yelled throughout my house "OMG WTH!" So be warned.

Again I enjoyed this book, but the ending might get you- in a good way! So enjoy this book as much as I did.

This was a good book, well written and thoroughly enjoyable but is meant for people who wants more romance/drama than actual supernatural story. You can feel all the angst coming off from miles, from this book.
I mean seriously, Till now the story hasn't even revealed the relationship of the main characters yet?!!!
I have no problems reading forbidden relationship but it's pulling in way too much drama than going on with the actual story line.
So I'm done. It's a good read for people who a

There's some books you simply read.
And there's others you devour.

Silence was one of those for me.

I had the utmost pleasure of reading this story as it was being written, but reading it all together was just... I can't even explain it.

Now, a lot of you know I love Nyddi with every single fiber of my being, but I can assure you my review is not based on my love for her. My review is based on the fact that this woman has one hell of a mind, a great mind that has the ca

Dear Lord,woman!!!!
I didn't stand a chance against Obsidian, just like he didn't stand a chance against Calamity.
I love this author and once again she nailed it ;)
It's forbidden and combustible..only a girl like Calamity can bring a man like Obsidian to his knees, bring him to forsake all his obligations and honour for a taste of her!
I was glued to my kindle and I couldn't have put it down to save my life!

Silence takes us into the world of vampires hidden in the modern world. Obsidian is back after being away for five years..upon his return he finds his niece by marriage all grown up and he cannot for the life of him explain why all of a sudden he is so drawn to Calamity but she is definitely off limits to him.

This was my first book by this author, the blurb for this one drew me in - dark, sexy, vampires and taboo, this sounded just up my street - I was not wrong, this was a fantastic read!!

Obsidian is returning home after being at war, back to his family, his brother the vampire king, his queen and his niece, Calamity - he's been gone awhile and can't wait to get back to see them.

But Calamity is no longer the young girl he remembers, she is a full grown vampire woman with wiles, who knows how to use

Can I just start by saying I wish this was longer?? Obsidian needs to be in many more books because oh my god. Okay okay so this is a novella that is not nearly long enough for my liking but it’s a very good novella. Seriously it’s easy to sit there and burn away a few hours just reading this story. I’ve gone back and read through it twice because it was quite good.

The universe she build up is wide and interesting,there was an aura of mystery all along which was very enticing.
Now about our heroes the relationship of Obsidian and Calamity is obsessive,volatile,hot and forbidden,everything I love.
My only complaint is that this book is too short,there is too much left unsaid,I want to see more of their love,how they are going to navigate this complex situation.I am really intrigued by the mythology,the meani

Silence by N Isabelle Blanco is a seductive tale of obsession and want.

Obsidian has returned home after five years of warring. He is welcomed by his people as well as his brother, the king, and the king’s wife.

Here, he also reunited with his niece by marriage Calamity. She is now 21 and his attraction to her is instant. He knows it’s wrong to want her but when she’s near it feels oh so good.

This is the story of Obsidian, a strong vampire warrior and Calamity the women who has the power to ruin him.

Returning from years of war, Obsidian returns to find Calamity has grown into a beautiful woman who is forbidden to him and yet at the same time temps him at every turn.

He spends his time following her to keep her safe but the more time he is around her, the harder she is to resist.

I’ll be the first to say it-I’m NOT a seasoned paranormal romance reader. It’s just not typically my genre-but I can certainly recognize a stellar writer when their words seep so deep into my pores that I’m completely and totally invested in their character’s world-paranormal, or not. This is the first book I’ve read by this author, and I’m so excited to dive into more by her, because her words are just so beyond sophisticated, that I fell so in love with her writing style as a whole.
Take everyt
This was an...okay read. I think if there was more to it it would have a great read because there was so much good stuff that was going on in it; it just needed to be fleshed out a bit more.

This was a taboo romance between an uncle and his step-niece. No blood relation, but it is the adopted daughter of his brother, so there was some ethical stuff there. What made this one stand out from others like it is its vampiric characters. So rather than the uncle just lusting after his grown niece, ther
It oozes that macabre sophistication that we've come to expect from the vampire world. The prose is vigorous, fierce and absolutely drenched in wantonness.

I've never read about vampires like these. Obsidian is a commander and a powerful ancient male vampire. He sets his eyes on the heiress to the throne and loses himself. His carnal obsession for her is instant, with a ferocity that leaps from the pages into the blood of the reader.
