June 2, 2012 – Book Review – Darkness Embraced by Winter Pennington

Darkness Embraced by Winter Pennington
Publisher: Bold Strokes Books
Genre: Paranormal

Description from the Boldstrokes website

“Two hundred years ago, Epiphany was reborn a vampire. Sired by Renata, the Queen of the Rosso Lussuria, Epiphany willingly played the role of the queen’s beloved pet—until she was cast from Renata’s bed and lost her protection from the Elder vampires.

Epiphany has done her best not to become a target, trying to remain as inconspicuous as possible, like a long-forgotten memory huddling beneath the mantle of Vasco’s power, her one true friend among the Rosso Lussuria. Now Renata has called Epiphany forth to face the challenges ahead that could elevate her clan status to the ranks of an Elder. But Epiphany has few friends and many enemies, and the chances of surviving the challenges are slim.

Surrounded by harsh vampire politics and secret ambitions, Epiphany learns that an old enemy is plotting treason against the woman she once loved, and to save all she holds dear, she must embrace and form an alliance with the dark.”

5 out of 5 Stars

As I started reading this book I realized that I am totally addicted to Winter Pennington’s writing style.  Yes, it’s a paranormal story and that may not be everyone’s bag, but it’s so well done that the reader doesn’t get bogged down in questioning if the premise could be real.  The characters and their story “feel” real and it’s completely engaging.  In my mind that’s what really matters. 

Well that matters and the fact that I’ve read everything I can find by Winter Pennington and might need a 12 step program to get me through until her next release.  It was bad enough that I’m hooked on the Kassandra Hall Series, now I’m hoping that Renata and Epiphany also turn into a series.
