Shades of Gray, Amaranthine Book One by Joleene Naylor

Click here to buy your copy!

After the murder of her friend/lover, Katelina’s life seemed pretty bleak. One day, while at work, she received a phone call that changed everything. Katelina was quickly shoved in to the dark, macabre world of vampires. She has to change everything she knows about them in order to accept help from the tall, dark and handsome stranger that has come to her rescue.

I absolutely loved this book. If you don’t know, I’m a sucker for GOOD vampire fiction and this was definitely GOOD vampire fiction. Joleene Naylor’s ability to paint such a detailed and fantastic world was not unappreciated. She took such great care to make the Amaranthine world seem so real, and I couldn’t have asked for better. I also really liked the fact that Naylor didn’t shy away from intimate moments and she kept them tasteful.

To the author, I have to say, thank you for taking such pride in your book. While reading, I could really feel the love you have for them. I already have Legacy of Ghosts loaded and ready to go on my Kindle.

  1. One of my favorite series ever!!! I just finished reading book five (Heart of the Raven) and I’m gearing up for book six. Joleene Naylor is an amazing writer. I’m with you–I like GOOD vampire fiction for grownups. The Amaranthine series is for adults, but it isn’t smutty or over the top. The intimate scenes serve a purpose and show development in the relationship between the characters. I can’t wait to hear your opinion on the rest of the series, Maegan.

  2. Thanks so much for the great review – I am so glad you enjoyed it! 😀
