Review: Dark Child (the Awakening): The Omnibus Edition
Dark Child (the Awakening): The Omnibus Edition by Adina West
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
This is no ordinary vampire tale - no boring, passive heroines or simply brooding heroes. The main character, Kat, is an intelligent young woman who doesn't just moon about waiting for the hero to rescue her - she does the rescuing. Finding out that she has a hunger for blood and an extraordinary gift to guess a person's blood type, as well as being a quick healer, Kat searches for answers to her mysterious abilities and gets swept up into another world of vampires and shape shifters who live amongst the humans. A taut thriller with a conspiracy plot to boot, West raises questions about the various factions competing to control Kat and her abilities.
The developing love triangle is intriguing - there are certainly aspects of both love interests that makes it hard to choose between - depends on whether you like the sensualist or the sensitive, thinking hero. I can't decide and will have to wait for the next instalment to satisfy my curiosity... Just as well it comes out soon!
Definitely a must read...
