Check out this review for all of the mini series collections for the Amaranthine Series by Joleene Naylor!!!
War is waged on the vampire guilds. Locations across the globe are being attacked by a mythical vampire cult called “Children of Shadows.” When a video is released by the group to human and vampire outlets alike, Katelina and the others learn that the cult is being led by Cyprus. Katelina, Jorick and their coven have to escape Munich to put a stop to their evil plan. While on their trip they meet Ume, a vampiress with insight to Verchiel’s past, and uncover more mysteries than they can solve.
I regret that I read this book so fast because now I am chomping at the bit for Clash of Legends. Every single book is better than the last and Children of Shadows is no exception. We see a different side to some of the “tougher” characters and what came out of some of the scenes was completely unexpected. Katelina is becoming this stronger, more aware character and I really like that she is not taking the whole “humans are the lesser” quietly. However, she is also learns a valuable lesson about how fragile humans really are in the world of vampires.
I really didn’t know what I was going to do with myself once I finished, but fortunately, Joleene Naylor has taken the time to write other books based in the Amaranthine Universe. I will be reading those while I wait not so patiently for Book 7!
War against the Citadel is coming. Oren and his allied covens have begun making plans. Of course, all Katelina wants is to be left in peace with Jorick in their little house by the sea. After a rescue and surprise attack, the two lovers find themselves back behind the walls of the Citadel and at Malick’s whim. Love, loss, jealousy, betrayal and manipulation are beginning to become routine for our poor little protagonists.
Another fantastic chapter in the Amaranthine series. Thus far, Ashes of Deceit was the most action packed, tear jerking novel yet and I cannot wait to dig into Heart of the Raven. The complicated relationship of a human who loves a vampire with a psycho for a master comes to a head in this exciting installment!! I have been gushing over these books for the last several days and I will continue to for a long time. It has been so refreshing to read well written, well thought out, self-published work. I feel like I need to end every sentence of this review with an exclamation point because it was just that good!
