Beckoned (Born of Darkness Book 1) by R. B. Fields – Review by Lianne Probert

Beckoned (Born of Darkness, Book 1)Beckoned by R.B. Fields
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Beckoned is the first book in the Born of Darkness series by R B Fields.

I love it when a new series pulls you in from the start, and that’s just what this book did. It’s been a while since I was drawn into a vampire story, despite enjoying them I find that they usually follow a similar storyline. This book, however, kept me on my toes. The characters are strong and full of personality. The story is engaging and fast-paced. I love it when you can get completely lost in a book and are so absorbed by the storyline that you just can’t put it down.

I quite often find that vampire stories are aimed more at the YA audience. This one, however, is definitely aimed at adults. I can’t wait to read the next book in the series.

I thought this book was going to go one direction and it took me to a completely unexpected place. I really enjoyed how the author set up the story in the first chapter and how the entire story unfolded. The characters were intriguing and I wanted to know more about why the female lead seemed to be so different. Her past defined her present but her future seemed to be potentially so much more. I really am interested to see how this develops as the series continues.

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Beckoned: Born of Darkness (Book 1) by R.B. Fields is a story full of paranormal and romance. It was a fascinating read. It was steamy. For people who are into vampire romance, this is the book for you.

Four sexy vampires with an attitude. A female hunter whose life is a very threat to the vampire race. Yet, she can’t help but fall in love with all of them. She is a serial killer hunter but a daytime emergency room nurse. Vampires aren’t allowed to kill their own, but one vampire has killed to protect her.

Every chapter was a fun read. The romance was very intense loved every page of it.

I am going to be honest when I tell you that I wasn’t a fan of this book at the beginning. It seemed very slow to start, but gosh was I glad that I didn’t let that deter me from reading this book. Once I really sunk my fangs into the meat of this book, I didn’t want to put it down. I have never read a book from this author before. To be perfectly honest, I’ve never heard of the author previously. But let me just say that she has grabbed my attention, and this will not be the last book I read from her. The characters are amazing, and she provides the reader with enough detail that allows your imagination to just roam freely. I especially found the vampire erotica story captivating and the detail was so descriptive that I felt like I was there watching it all take place. And it was steamy! The chapters contain different character points of view which I personally thought was brilliant. I think that was what threw me off at first, but once I figured out what was going on I LOVED IT! If you liked Twilight and wanted more erotica then this book is perfect for you.

Beckoned: Born of Darkness (Book 1) by R. B. Fields. This book blew me away from start to finish. I sometimes have trouble sinking into a paranormal story but I definitely didn’t have that problem with this book. From page one I knew I was in for quite the ride with not only the storyline but the characters. It’s definitely a steamy read and I loved every minute of it. The characters truly brought the storyline to life. It’s well written and paced nicely never feeling rushed or lacking anything. I’m already excited for more from this author. Five stars all the way! Can’t wait to see where this author takes readers next.

I absolutely loved reading the book Beckoned: Born of Darkness which is book 1 by R. B. Fields. I love almost all paranormal books but especially books with vampires, and this one doesn’t let you down. This book has a great storyline that pulls you in from the very beginning and holds your interest to the very end leaving you wanting more. But not only did the author write an amazing book, her characters are what bring it to life, the details she puts into both makes you feel like you are there!

Beckoned: Born of Darkness (Book 1) by R.B. Fields

This is the first book by Fields and I will be waiting for more. Beckoned is an amazing start to a great series. Fields knows how to write and bring the readers back.

Dawn has never felt like she belonged anywhere. She’s a nurse in the ER and sees a lot of things. She is told that her mother didn’t die by the hands of a monster, but she soon learns that’s not true. The quote I chose for Dawn is: “I’m going to sit by the pond. Let me know when I can come in to eat, would you? You do have human food, right?”

Silas is one of the four vampire mates to Dawn. When he finds her on the bridge trying to kill another of his kind he is shocked. He’s the first to bond with her and knows how she enhances his powers. The quote I chose for Silas is: “I heard them, too, in the woods, though they were very far away — farther than I should be able to hear. Something about her is increasing my range and the intensity of my powers, and —”

Kain is the smart one of Dawn’s mates. When he tends to her wounds he finds that he is stronger. He doesn’t want to go too deep as he needs to research. The quote I chose for Kain is: “Not much to tell. I was in the war , which one is irrelevant — they are all the same. I do not remember dying. I do not remember turning. I do know it took me nearly eighty years to find Markula … and those like him.”

Draynor is the second to bond with Dawn. The third of her mates and the one who can feel things. He doesn’t know what to make of her at first. Soon that all changes and he doesn’t want to leave her. The quote I chose for Draynor is: “I guarantee none of them can hear as well as we can. They can’t sense us the way we can sense them. And if Dawn’s with us, she’ll likely dampen their senses as she did ours before we bonded, leaving our powers all the more finely honed. Our best option is —”

Markula is the leader of their hive. The fourth and the last to mate with Dawn. When he does he finds that she may be playing them. He doesn’t trust her and hasn’t from the beginning. The quote I chose for Markula is: “There are no vices for us, no real dangers for addiction. We can’t invite that in, especially when we have no frame of reference for what kind of addiction this might be.”

Highly recommended for Erotica Romance lovers.

  1. I enjoyed this book by R.B. Fields. I have read only a few reverse harem books, but I do find them interesting and I find I really like that genre. The story of Daw, Silas, Markulaz, Draynor, and Kain was a fun read. The story included some drama and mystery, and it was exciting. R.B. Fields created a vibrant world. I look forward to the next book in this series.View all my reviews

Beckoned: Born of Darkness (Book 1) by R.B. Fields – Review by Roxsanne Lesieur

Beckoned (Born of Darkness, Book 1)Beckoned by R.B. Fields
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Dawn Macewan is a nurse by day and a badass human woman who follows the darkness that lives inside her and draws her to the darkness in others and uses it to solve the unsolvable murders and when she does, she goes after the serial killers before incapacitating them and handing them over to the authorities, but that is all about to change when her latest one turns out to be a vampire and a mean one at that. As she walks down the boardwalk late at night and well after the imposed curfew, she is ready to confront the evil where it preys upon the women, suddenly she hears him approaching her from behind, she grasps her mothers knife and prepares for the inevitable attack, but when she sees another man at the other end of the bridge, she is not prepared for the reaction she has to him, the man with the violet eyes staring back at her.

As the reality dawns on her that there are actually two of them, she is determined to at least get in some damage of her own before she is taken down, but when the guy in front of her disappears, she then feels a bolt of pain in the back of her head and as she struggles back to her feet, she knows the guy is behind her, she can hear him breathing, but as she attempts to get to her phone and finish the call to the authorities, he grabs her arm and wrenches her arm out of the socket, but as he shifts his weight to get behind her, she stabs him in the thigh with her knife, but she cannot escape him and the rest of her blows don’t seem to affect him at all and that’s when he starts to strangle her. As she knows she is about to die, the pressure suddenly releases and she hears a tearing sound in the air and she turns to see both men on the boardwalk, the one who tried to kill her is dead and ripped apart on the boards and the other is above him and when he approaches her, his face is covered in blood.

The man approaches her, knowing that he may attack her, but she is drawn to him and it appears that he is feeling the same way as he offers her his hand, she doesn’t trust him, but as he asks her questions, she just barks a laugh at him and as they both realise that she isn’t afraid of him like she should be, even when she lets slip that she knows he is a vampire too, although she says she is surprised seeing as they were working together, he puts that right as soon as she says it disgusted even at the idea. He seems to make a decision there and asks her to go with him and see the others, she agrees to go, liking the idea of safety in numbers, especially when vampires are involved, so getting on his motorcycle, they head back to his group and as she thinks over what she has just seen and how it will affect her future, but the feeling that she is in danger overarches everything else. When they arrive at the vampires home, it is not what she expected, but at the same time she understands the need for it, however as the door opens and a discussion about her ensues, she is not sure what her best option is, to go home and face certain death, or stay here and face possible death.

When Dawn tries to sleep and fails when her nightmares start, she gives up and gets dressed, but realises her knife is missing and goes to find the guy who brought her there, he is the only one who knows about it, however when she goes to confront him, she cannot deny the attraction between them and before she knows it, she is overcome with desire and so is he and they spend the night together, but when the next day, they all set off together somewhere else, she finds that it isn’t just the him she is attracted to and when things start to heat up between her and one of the others in the group, she doesn’t know what to do about it, but that is just the start of the unusual occurrences as they escape from the other vampire group chasing them down, but will she be able to survive them, or will whatever she has gotten in to be ruined before it can even start?

This is an erotic romance with a twist as secrets are revealed and tensions mount leaving you wanting to find out what those secrets are and as this fast paced novel whirls you to the end it keeps you interested all the way through.

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Beckoned (Book One of the Born In Darkness series) by R.B. Fields was a really good read! If you enjoy steamy stories with an actual storyline, this book is for! Reading this synopsis, I thought this book was going to be a little funnier than what it was. It wasn’t really funny to me, but it was entertaining, steamy and suspenseful with some graphic violence involved. This definitely not a book for people under the age of 18. The storyline was interesting, and the ending definitely leaves you wanting more. I can’t wait to read the next installment of this series!
