Rebel Heart By Clara Winter
5 Stars!!!!!

I was very excited to read this second book in the Immortal Kindred series and I can say that I wasn’t
disappointed. I found that this book was a very good follow up to the first. I really found that the author’s
writing style really keeps the reader glued to the pages and eager to see what will happen next.

I really loved the chance to get to know Annie better. I found that the backstory really helped put a few pieces in place and was just the right fit to the first. I loved getting to know Annie and how she came to be who she was and how she came to become part of the family with Millie and Alexandre. The best part was getting to see how Thayer and Annie found one another and how they were meant to be. I found it really interesting to get to know Thayer as well with part of his past. I really was quite intrigued by the sort of cliffhanger ending and look forward to the third book in this series.

Rebel Heart is the second book in The Immortal Kindred series and another great read! I really enjoyed the first book so was really looking forward to reading this one and I wasn’t disappointed! Again the author’s writing was exciting, entertaining and there were lots of twists and turns that kept my interest throughout.
The first book concentrated on Millicent and in this book we get Annie’s story, who we did meet in book 1. I thought she was an intriguing character so I was really looking forward to finding out more about her. Through the author richly detailed writing and world building I felt like I really got to know and understand Annie’s character and I found that I was engrossed in her story. She was strong and independent and I loved the connection that she had with Captain Thayer! There was a definite attraction between them!
A great read and I can’t wait to read more from this author again in the future!

Rebel Heart (The Immortal Kindred Series #2)Rebel Heart by Clara Winter
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

 

Rebel Heart is the second book in The Immortal Kindred Series by Clara Winter. It is a paranormal romance, with vampires, supernatural themes, suspense, action, drama, intrigue, and a touch of mystery. Again, Ms. Winter spins a captivating tale, which is an original twist to the vampire theme.
This book is Annie’s story whom we met as Millicent’s friend in book one. We get to discover so much more about her, and how she got to where she is. The story spends a lot of time in the past, as we follow Annie on her journey. I really like her as a character and was engrossed in her story. There were a few surprises that I didn’t see coming, and coupled with the incredible world building skills shown by Ms. Winter, made for a really great read.
As with the first book in the series, this was a terrific story, it was a little slow to get going, but the pace picked up and the story flowed wonderfully well. Ms. Winter crafted a story full of superb paranormal elements that were entirely believable and made the whole story ‘come alive’. I am really looking forward to the next book, due out in July this year!

Thank you, Ms. Winter!

Rebel Heart (The Immortal Kindred Series #2)Rebel Heart by Clara Winter
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

A great read about fighting. Annie is a spy working towards the American independence in the 1700s. When she is captured by Hessian soldiers, she thinks her number is up. To her surprise, she is rescued by Captain Thayer Emmerich and lives another day. But things get complicated when a codes spy book goes missing. With lives on the line, what lengths will Annie go to to fight for what she believes?
A great read. Well developed plot with twists and turns that I just couldn’t put down. Well developed characters like Annie full of fierce spirit but kind underneath or Thayer as quiet and reserved but still doing the right thing. Great cast of supporting characters like kind friend Benjamin or sweet Millicent or the cruel Emilia. A great example of using a different perspective for the sequel telling Annie’s story.
I loved the visual detail throughout the novel like the town with the busy streets full of life and people with its horses and carts and little cottages as vivid as if you were actually there with its sense of history. Or
with the dagger small and elegant with its embellished designs. Or the vivid sense of colour with the dresses with dark blues and bright reds and stark whites for a sense of colour contrasting against the darkness of night and the cemetary perfectly written.
I loved the mix of fantasy with the vampires and the realism of the history of the time period combined together beautifully for a great read. Fast paced action and high stakes made for a captivating read. Overall, a great read and I would give it five stars.

Rebel Heart by Clara Winters is the second hook in the sImmortal Kindred series. This time we ate given Annie’s story, one which is interesting enjoyable.
Clara Winters weaves another great story that had you fully connected to the characters. I loved watching how everything played out in this book and how the story just kept developing. The story and the characters were as interesting as the first. The book has a little bit of everything so easily keeps your attention. I look forward to seeing what is next from this author.

Rebel Heart (The Immortal Kindred Series #2) by Clara Winter was an hooking engaging read, that had me flipping the pages.

Not my first read by this author or in this series, so I knew going in that I was in for one hell of a story. I met Annie in the first book, and though she played more of a background roll (till the end,) her story intrigued me and I wanted to know more. The book takes us back to when Annie was a spy, we get her story, and we get to meet a new sexy vamp Captain Thayer Emmerich. Annie said in the first book you only get one chance of true love, and now I’m wondering if she meant this sexy piece of dream fiction.

Told in dual POV, we not only get to experience Annie’s life before Alexander, we get to see through the eyes of Captain Thayer Emmerich. Witnessing the cold captain fall under her spell, was a treat, and it added unexpected layer to this already complex book. I enjoyed his evolving character, it was well balanced. Normally I lean towards one MC, but with Annie’s equally intriguing character development, I can’t choose, and I don’t want to. These two matched, they’re overlapping story matched, and I loved every second of this star crossed lovers story, caught in a deadly spy game.

If you haven’t guessed I highly recommend this original fresh read, so please take my stamp of approval, that you will fall under Annie’s and Captain Thayer Emmerich spell.

Happy Reading

Deepest Midnight (Immortal Kindred Series Book One) by Clara Winter – Review by Emma Morreale

Deepest Midnight (The Immortal Kindred Series #1)Deepest Midnight by Clara Winter
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I wasn’t sure about Deepest Midnight when I started reading it but it has really grown on me. It is far better than certain other contemporary vampire romances and I liked the looks back into Millicent’s past. It added more to the story in a great way as opposed to leaving huge questions for possible later books.
Even though this book probably wasn’t supposed to be as funny as I found it, one of my favorite bits near the beginning is when Millicent thinks “Oh I can’t just tell this guy I’m a vampire and can’t go out in the day time” when she absolutely could have. The time period being now, the fact that she wears all black, and her being crazy rich would have been PERFECT for her to just play it like she’s really eccentric or really into the goth lifestyle. She also could have played it like a deadpan joke. I definitely died laughing if she had.
Alexandre is incredibly intriguing and I constantly wanted to know more about his backstory and was rooting for Millicent to give him a piece of her mind for treating her like property at times.
Really looking forward to the next book

Deepest Midnight (Book One of the Immortal Kindred Series) By Clara Winter
5 Stars!!!!!

I love finding new authors as well as new series. I also love books with Vampires. This book was just my cup of tea! The author had a very unique take on vampires and I found her characters to be quite refreshing.

I found that I was really routing for Millicent. I like how the author was able to intorduce parts of her past to enrich the book and help to get to know her character better. I also enjoyed how the author was able to bring the drama into the book. I quite enjoyed how the author was able to draw out the intrigue and the murderer wasn’t really obvious at first. I really enjoyed this book from page one and cannot wait to read more from this author and this series.

5 Star
Deepest Midnight: Book 1 of the Immortal Kindred Series by Clara Winter is a paranormal romance that I couldn’t put down once I started reading. I was drawn in from the beginning and kept my attention till the end. The characters are very detailed and I felt like I was going right along with them. The character Millicent is a Immortal/vampire who feels grief still because of the past. When she finds herself caught and looking into the eyes of a man whom looks like her dead love.This man’s name is Jack. There is definitely desire and attraction between these two. What will happen with these two? What will she do? Find out what happens next. I highly recommend reading this book. I can’t wait to read more from this author.

Rebel Heart: Book Two of the Immortal Kindred Series
By Clara Winter
Rated 4 stars

At first this is a little slow. I noticed it in the last book as well. Please don’t let deter you from this….keep reading….don’t give up. It really drew me in and I wanted….no needed to know what was going to happen. It just seems there is a lot of detail (to the houses, trees and such) that I don’t really need but others might enjoy. I just want to get to the story. The talking, the feelings and the action!

Meeting Thayer…he has lived his life always thinking one way….whichever way his maker says. Once Annie enters his life he finally starts thinking along a different line. His growth through this story was wonderful. I enjoyed this guy as a character.

We met Annie in the last book and this is her story. How she came to be with Millicent and Alexandre. I am saddened by her and Alexandre’s relationship. I would have thought after 200 plus years they would have gained a camaraderie. As for Millicent I would not have realized the close friendship they had if I had not read book 1. They seemed more distant in this one. Benjamin…well I about had tears in my eyes when Annie went to visit him. Good friends are hard to find.

I highly recommend reading Deepest Midnight (Book 1) before reading this. It gives you a better idea why things are the way they are in this one. As for the ending….What the Heck? I didn’t see that coming and can’t even imagine what the next book will be about. Crazy!
