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

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.

4 Stars

This is book one in the Immortal Kindred series. As far as vampire stories go, this one is interesting because the author throws in the idea of reincarnation as well. Millicent was alive in the 1700’s and was a French noblewoman. She fell in love with a man who wasn’t her husband. Soon after she became a vampire and for over two hundred years mourns the loss of her true love. By chance, she meets a man who is the spitting image of her lost love. Does reincarnation exist? Can this actually be him?

The story switches back and forth between the 18th century and present day so we fully understand Millicent’s life. The author did a good job because you never get lost within the story. Milli’s knowledge of vampire history is limited to only what her maker told her, which isn’t much. She has only lived with her maker and another vampire, rarely meeting any other immortal. Guaranteed this will lead to some interesting situations later in the series.

This is the first book that I have read from this author. I found the story to be easy flowing and interesting. There was romance, drama and mystery rolled all together which made an intriguing story. I’m looking forward to seeing what happens next.

Deepest Midnight by Clara Winter is the first book in the first book in the Immortal Kindred series. The story is set in modern-day Savannah, Georgia with some flashbacks to the 18th-century French court. Millicent is an immortal vampire who meets an actor who looks like her long lost love of ages ago. I really like Millicent and other characters. I was drawn in by the story and loved the flashbacks to her mortal life. The secondary characters were great. I really look forward to reading more from this series.

Deepest Midnight was a brilliant read; I was hooked from beginning to end. The author‘s writing was excellent, the story flowed well, it was easy to read and very engaging. The author’s attention to detail was great which made it even better to read. The characters were well thought out and developed well over the story. Vampire stories are amongst my favourite paranormal romance reads but I do find sometimes they are much the same so I liked that this one was a little different, I could tell the author had really thought about what she was writing about and which direction she wanted her characters to go in. There was a dark undertone to the story too which I particularly liked. I enjoyed the little snippets into Millicent’s past and finding out more about her.
Overall I thought that this was a fantastic paranormal romance read with some great twists and turns which left me guessing what was going to happen! I am really looking forward to reading book 2 in the series and I highly recommend this one!

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

For some reason, I was initially hesitant about reading this story – I’m sure it was the space I was in at that moment. What was I hesitant for? This story is fantastic.

I was immediately invested in the characters. The story moves quickly and doesn’t use a ton of unnecessary descriptions. It is clearly well plotted from beginning to end. I read it in one sitting and read every word. There was no need to skim at any point.

There is a lot right with this book and nothing wrong with it.

This is a book I would recommend to my younger cousins and look forward to reading the next book in the series.

Deepest Midnight is the first book in The Immortal Kindred Series by Clara Winter. This was my first read by Ms. Winter, but I am a real sucker for a good vampire story, so she had me right from the beginning. The story is a paranormal romance, with vampires, supernatural themes, suspense, action, drama, and a touch of mystery. Ms. Winter spins a captivating tale, with an original twist to the vampire theme.
Millicent has been brooding and glum for over two hundred years mourning the loss of her soulmate, even though it happened so long ago, the pain is still fresh and the loss weighs heavily on her heart- it’s like she’d lost a part of herself. So, imagine her shock when she stops to watch a as a movie is being filmed nearby, and looks into the face from her past. The actor is the spitting image of her long lost lover. Is her grief-stricken mind playing tricks on her? Is this a freaky coincidence, or could he really be the same man? Join Millicent, Alexandre, Annie, and Jack to find out all the captivating details for yourself.
This was a great story, with wonderful paranormal elements crafted in such a way that they were entirely believable. The whole story ‘came alive’ before my eyes, and that comes down to the authors talent for spinning a great story. I am really looking forward to the next book, “Rebel Heart’.

Thank you, Ms. Winter!

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Deepest Midnight: Book One of the Immortal Kindred Series by Clara Winter is a paranormal romance that quickly became an addictive read. Set in Savannah, Georgia, this story has all the historical feel of that location in the character interactions. Add in attractive vampires, this story took on a twist that gives the story charm, allure and intrigue. Millicent is the heroine, who is fractured/flawed, from her past. Her character was strong, yet vulnerable. When she believes fate has changed her path, she cannot avoid not pursing that. However, not everyone is willing to let things fall as they will and that brings in the drama of the story. It was detailed, well written and an addictive pleasure to read.

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

A great read about hope. Living forever can be miserable if you have lost the one you love. Millicent still mourns her lover even though he died more than two centuries ago. But when she meets an actor who looks exactly like him, her hope is reignited. Desperate to find out if he is Julien, she seeks him out and accidentally develops feelings for him. If he is Julien, can Millicent hope for a better future or will the past repeat itself?
A great read. Well developed plot with twists and turns that I just couldn’t put down. Well developed characters like Millicent struggling with her feelings but still going for what she wants or the supportive and friendly Annie. The contrast between bright happy Alexander and moody Millicent was beautifully written and enjoyable.
I loved the visual detail throughout the novel in the sense of history with alleyways covered in moss and cobblestones and the fountain giving the place a sense of character. Or the vivid sense of colour in the past with vibrant blues and pinks and green parks or gold birds eye catching and bright making you feel as if you were actually there.
I loved the mix of genres with realism of actors and police officers and the fantasy of immortals that combined together for a captivating read. I also loved the original fairy tale feel of the meetings with Jupiter in the little cottage in the woods with a wise helpful figure. The flashbacks into the memories of the past were well written and didn’t distract from the narrative of the present. The use of italics and dates in these sections was a great addition and made it easy to follow for the reader. Overall, a great read and I would give it five stars.
