    This review is also at The Rave Library.

    A witch who turned into a vampire? That sounds like an interesting idea! Well, while the premise sounds good, the plot kind of fell flat at the second half because nothing interesting happens there.

    Sure, Ava is a badass who only wants to help everyone, even breaking the rules when necessary. She's a character to root for, even midway of the book she fell flat. It's because her mind went mush after meeting Jasik. But still, her struggle to become a

    Yet another winning book from Danielle Rose and Waterhouse Press! I, for one, am super excited to know that it is a series and has four more coming out. (Can I have them today?) If you like witches and or vampire novels, then this one is for you! Bravo Ms. Rose, bravo.

    Ava was born a spirit witch. Her mother is also a spirit witch. Her grandmother is in charge of the coven, and one day Ava will fill that role too.
    Part of the covens job is to protect the town from vampires. Ava is sent out on

    This book was received as an ARC from Waterhouse Press in exchange for an honest review. Opinions and thoughts expressed in this review are completely my own.

    This book was a mix of Twilight and Divergent and I loved every page and chapter from beginning to end. After being betrayed and summoned away from her family, Ava is found in captive with the Vampires in which she was tasked to hunt. She is after nothing but revenge on those that have betrayed her. Then when she was with the Vampires she

    That cliff hanger ending though!!! OMG!! I want more of Ava's story to come to paper!! I immediately fell in love with the premise and plot but the writing definitely honed it all together. I'm excited to see were the book goes, although it is a shorter, fast-paced read I thoroughly enjoyed the characters, the world building, and prose!!

    Ava has only ever known her coven, and protecting it. But one night a ritual goes awry and Avas life is changed for ever. She also learns that her beloved

    Dark Secret is a perfect introductory novella for a series.

    It's got a fast paced plot that follows a young witch turned Vampire that is exiled and has to come to terms with her new life living as her old enemy, being cast out by her family and discovering her new Vampire family.

    The witch rituals are pretty accurate as far as my pagan friends knowledge is concerned and my high school interest in Wicca. It's nice to know the rituals and processes are accurate to reality despite being a

    I'm anxious to see where this story goes. It was a quick read and I was dying for more. Ava being forsaken by her family because she turned into the one thing she sought to kill was devastating. Jasik intrigues me and I'm ready to find out how him and Svz progress. I like this premise and I hope it keeps building because this part left me hanging and hoping for more.

    Well, as a first time reader of Danielle's I have to say I am pleasantly pleased. The ever stubborn witch turned vampire Ava is still coming to terms with the change of events as a rogue vampire attacks her at every turn. Ava is trying so hard to deny her feelings for the vamp that sired her Jasik. I can't wait for the continuation of her story.

    This was a quick read. Not much of a story, it had potential but unfortunately fell flat. It went by quickly but nothing really happened.
