Beckoned (Born of Darkness Book 1) by R. B. Fields – Review by Liz Vrchota

Beckoned (Born of Darkness, Book 1)Beckoned by R.B. Fields
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Normally vampire reads are not a go to for me, but when I saw the cover and a few teasers I knew I needed to see what this was all about. Fields is also a new author to me so I am excited to get a chance to read what else she has available since I enjoyed this one. Beckoned it the first book of the Born of Darkness series, and I am super excited to get a chance to see what will come next. I loved the way Fields wrote these characters so well you can’t help but to fall in love with them as you follow them tackling the things life throws their way. I really enjoyed the erotic romance undertones as well because they were done well and with grace that this lifestyle deserves. I can’t wait to see what will happen next!

Rebecca Remains by Jessica Aiken-Hall – Review by Rebecca Hill

Rebecca RemainsRebecca Remains by Jessica Aiken-Hall
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Wow, Rebecca Remains is so good! As I began reading this book, I immediately had red flags about the main character’s husband, Keith. I found myself questioning everything he said and did even while Tessa was saying he was a perfect husband. I read more and more of the story and learned of Tessa’s life. I was drawn into the mystery and quite unable to put the book down. Parts of the story were so intense that I was on the edge of my seat waiting for the other shoe to drop. Boy, did it ever drop. The end was so unexpected and so surprising with a twist that I never saw coming. Jessica Aiken-Hall artfully wove into the story a lesson about finding yourself and believing in yourself while writing a fantastic story!

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.

What a ride!!!. So much suspense, gave me chills. It certainly drew me in. Tessa had so much going on in her life, her parents dying then her grandma and she can also see the dead, but everything changes when someone named Rebecca appears and Tessa starts to think her happily ever after is not so happy after all and starts to doubt everything about her loving husband.

This book drew me in immediately. It was like watching a Lifetime movie in my mind! I enjoyed the pace of the book and read it in about a day. I just had to know how things played out in the end! Every time I thought I knew what was going to happen, I was surprised by twists that I was NOT expecting.

Beckoned (Born of Darkness Book 1) by R. B. Fields – Review by Heather Lovelace

Beckoned (Born of Darkness, Book 1)Beckoned by R.B. Fields
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

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.

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

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I really liked Trent and Tina in book one so was excited to see this book about them. What do you do when you inherit a house that’s haunted and the ghost wants you dead? Well this is Trent’s dilemma. Seeing characters from the first book as they’re all friends, was nice and these 2 were fun to read about.

Vengeance (The Sundown Series Book 5) by Courtney Konstantin – Review by Angela Hayes

VengeanceVengeance by Courtney Konstantin
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

 

Vengeance is the fifth thrilling instalment in the Sundown Series by Courtney Konstantin. This is such a brilliant zombie, post-apocalyptic survival story with so much heart pounding action, adventure, violence, drama, danger, a plague, fight scenes, tension, intensity, mystery, suspense, and so much more.
The is so vivid- every detail so cleverly crafted that the entire story came to life, pulling me into all the heart-pounding action- and had me in survival mode, looking around every corner for any new threats- believe me, I was on the edge of my seat for the majority of this story.
The book is intense, raw, gritty, and entirely gripping. Ms. Konstantin took me on an adventure that was so ‘real’ and believable- even though we don’t have zombies in the real world- she made a true believer- it was that realistic.
There are a LOT of zombie apocalyptic stories that have made the rounds over the past few years, but this story/series has quite an original take on the zombie ‘lore’. I was immersed in the story- losing all sense of time and place- completely engrossed and entirely invested in the outcome. I devoured it in one sitting and am still thinking about it, days later- and to me, that’s a sign of a great story and a superb author!
Ms. Konstantin has a bold, dynamic, and vividly descriptive style- which brought every single scene to life. I was right there, in amongst the action, fighting for survival! The story is so gripping, gruesome, and disturbing- but at the same time there are tender, emotive, and heartfelt moments which gave the story so much more depth.
Even though this could be read as a standalone, there is so much more to know, with important storyline/backstory, intriguing developments, as well as character introductions/details to be found in the previous books. So, I really recommend reading the previous books before starting on this one as knowing what happened previously will definitely enhance your reading experience of this book.
I cannot recommend this series and author highly enough! So, if you love a thrilling read with zombie/apocalyptic/survival theme- a gripping, well-written plot, and incredibly interesting characters- then this is the book/series for you! Seriously! What are you waiting for- it’s a definite ‘must read’!
Addictive reading! Can’t wait for more!

Thank you, Courtney Konstantin!
