Deepest Midnight (The Immortal Kindred Series #1) by Clara Winter was an engaging read that had me hooked from start to finish.
My first read by this author and I’m impressed. It’s been awhile since I’ve read a good paranormal romance, especially one involving vampires, and I will tell you I had this book read in one sitting. This book had a mix of everything, it played with the normal tropes and clichés, but didn’t overload, and gave more substance to the vampire lore. This book had this dark tone throughout. Even when there was cause to be happy, that lurking darkness was still there, letting us know this book is anything but.
There is one thing I want to touch on and highlight, that really pulled me into this book, and that was the flashbacks to Millicent past. They were giving little by little at first, just a sneak peek here and there into her oastself, and into a time long gone. It gave us just enough that when she reveal her whole story, you were engrossed, captivated and didn’t want it to end. In truth, if the author wanted, could make a prequel going more in depth with what transpire not only between Millicent and Julien, but what transpired after her change.
Overall this book is a solid read, and it’s a solid start to what will probably become my most anticipated series of this year. So please take my super high recommendation and my golden stamp of approval, that this book will put you in a trance and you will not be able to stop reading until you get to that bittersweet ending.
