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!

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!

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

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!

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

Clara Winter’s Rebel Heart is the second book of the Immortal Kindred Series. Rebel Heart is Annie’s story, who played a supporting role/secondary character in the Deepest Midnight, the first book of the series. In Annie’s story, we’re taken back in time. Of note, this story includes both the past and present. As the story unfolds we learn more of Annie, who she was, the choices she made and how they’ve come to shape who she is today. It’s not often that an author’s second story in a series outshines or surpasses the previous book(s), but Rebel Heart has done that. Clara Winter’s storytelling is creative, fresh, appealing and full of emotional charges – both positive and negative. I have fallen in love with this series as essence of the pasts reconnect with today, it’s truly an invigorating read.

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

I give Rebel Heart: Book Two of the Immortal Kindred Series by Clara Winter, 4 stars.
*This review may contain spoilers from book one of the series.*

We met Annie in book one, but she was just a secondary character. This book shows you her story, how she became who she is today. She was a Rebel spy, working to help bring the English to their knees. She does all she can, but she always wishes she could do more. She wants to be stronger, like the men she works with. Then she gets captured by the Hessians. She is no fool, she knows her life is soon over — and it will not be an easy death from what she has heard of these evil men. But then the unexpected happens. A man with the most captivating eyes comes into where she is being held and helps her escape. She has no idea why, but she is drawn to him. He seems different, almost more than human. But this was only a chance meeting, surely she will never see him again. She can’t stop thinking about him, though. Then she meets and quickly befriends a woman who seems to have the same certain qualities as her soldier. When she learns what they really are, she wants to be like them. It will give her the advantage as a spy. But what will become of her after the war? What about the man she can’t stop thinking about? Little does she know just how much the future holds for her.

Most of this book is set in the past and therefore does not really connect directly with book one. However, there are some events that happen that will make much more sense if you read book one first. That being said, I loved this book. I took an immediate liking to Annie and was so happy when I found out this book was about her. She has such passion and drive. She does not give up, doing what needs to be done. She was way ahead of her time, yet adapts easily to the time she is in. Thayer is also an interesting character. You really do understand why he is the way he is in the beginning of the book. Plus you see Annie melting his heart, and she doesn’t even realising how much she is changing him. Yes, this is a love story. But there is so much action going on with the war, then subsequent things happening later on in the book. Oh, you didn’t think I’d give it away, did you? I can tell you that there were surprises I never saw coming. I cannot wait to get my hands on the next book.

I highly recommend both of the books in the series. You will not be disappointed.

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Rebel Heart is a worthy addition to the paranormal romance genre. Intrigue mixed with romance mixed with vampires – what’s not to love? I found the author’s work to be rich in detail. The characters played well off one another and had just the right amount of flaws to be believable and relatable. The series continues to be one I would recommend in its entirety.
