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.

Deepest Midnight: Book 1 of the Immortal Kindred Series
By Clara Winter
Rated 4 stars

This is a story of vampires or immortals. I was glad to pick this up because it’s been a bit since I was able to indulge myself. I was a bit shocked over this story. It was not what I expected it to be. It starts off at a nice pace as we are Introduced to the characters. We meet a few humans and then everything goes haywire. Half way through there is A lot of memory sharing and inner thinking. I got a bit bored at that point. Millicent is Way overthinking the situation (I know she is a different vampire but still) It picks back up near the end for a smashing conclusion.

Vampires are my second fav paranormal story. So I have read a lot. I felt this had a some holes in it. With them being together for 240 years I would think they would know a lot more about vampires than what was led to believe. I enjoyed the story of how Alexandre enticed Millicent to him. The relationship with the human and between the 3 vampires were lovely adds to the story. Overall this is a short look into the current life of a few vamps with some flashbacks to help explain a few things. I enjoyed the explanation of the title. Very interesting and perfect! I liked this…yes i had a few issues but it is a good story and held my interest. I read it fairly quickly and the story did move along nicely. This is my first time reading this author. I am giving her second book in the series a read.

I give Deepest Midnight: Book One of the Immortal Kindred Series by Clara Winter, 4 stars.

Millicent is a vampire that has been around for over two centuries. And she has been grieving the whole time. In fact, she has not been happy since she was mortal and was truly in love. But that ended up being short lived. Now she has met man who reminds her so much of him. But is it this man the one she loves or just the memory of her lost love? Plus he is human. If she wants a long relationship, she must tell him. Will it ever work?

This a paranormal romance with some suspense thrown in. There are flashbacks to tell you more of Millicent’s mortal life plus much going on in modern day. There at the relationships with her immortal family, as well as interacting with humans. She struggles daily. This book was okay to start with, but it gets quite good with the twists and turns you won’t see coming. Plus an angle that I won’t give away that I have not seen in vampire stories before.

I was intrigued with this book and I highly recommend it to those who love vampires and interesting stories.

Five Stars

Vampires are my go to books. I love most reads that feature blood sucking lol. I was so excited to dive into this story. Normally it’s a guy that’s the vampire and the female is just a mortal. In this story our girl has the fangs and it’s depressing. But it gets better she just has to find her happy place. The author made some surprising twist that made the story stand out more. It wasn’t a typical vampire story. Mills has a very depressing personality and it doesn’t make her likable but you do understand her. I don’t like my characters to be down 24/7. As the story goes on the author puts some twist in that just have you wanting to scream. I love books that are unpredictable. The author definitely delivered.

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.

Happy Reading

Deepest Midnight by Clara Winter is the first book in the Immortal Kindred series. This book is full of twists and turns that will take you on an amazing journey from page one.
I really enjoyed how the book utterly captivated me from the word go. I became so immersed in the story and the characters. I couldn’t decide how I thought it all might end which I found really exciting. I wanted things to work out well for Millicent and I was behind her the whole way.
This was such a strong and brilliant start to a new series. I cannot wait to read more.

This is not your run of the mill vampire love story. The author does a beautiful job weaving her tale through flashbacks, plot twists, and intriguing characters. I found myself entranced by the story and read it in one sitting. I am so thankful that this is book one in a series; I am anxiously awaiting the opportunity to read book two!

By: Clara Winter
5 out of 5 stars

The story Deepest Midnight: Book One of the Immortal Kindred Series by Clara Winter is a paranormal romance book. It is a story that hooked me in from the very beginning and didn’t let go until I had read the final page. I loved the attention to detail that the story has and it felt like I was right there with the characters experiencing what they did. I loved reading about the character of Millicent. She is an immortal/vampire who still feels grief because of the past. She finds herself caught unaware when she finds herself looking into the eyes of a man who looks just like her long dead love. She meets him and finds out the man’s name is Jack. I could feel the desire and attraction between them. While they label what they are doing as having fun, it is not long before Millicent feels strong emotions for Jack. One of the issues she must face is Alexandre, Millicent’s maker and companion who is firmly against the relationship. What will Millicent do? Will she give in to Alexandre as he is the one that has protected and saved her in the past or will she go forward on a path of her own choosing, one that could lead her to happiness again? Read this book to find out. This is a story that had me turning pages to find out what was going to happen next. Millicent is a character that I grew to love with each chapter that I read and found myself wanting her to be happy. I found that the story flowed smoothly and enjoyed the transitioning from the modern day setting to the 18th century. My emotions went up and down with the characters throughout the entire book. Don’t miss out on a wonderful romance story that includes immortals/vampires and kept me mesmerized until the end. It is a book I would highly recommend reading. It is the first story in a series and I look forward to reading the next one.

This is a creative, easy flowing and the twists and turns I didn’t see coming left me on the edge of my seat story. This is about Millicent who gets turned by a mysterious man, Alexandre. But then she meets Jack, is it possible that he is her true love? They will leave you questioning reincarnation, will they make you believe? I enjoyed the characters as they brought the story to life for me. I can’t wait to see more from them in the future. I highly recommend this book.
