Review: Dark Cravings by Madeline Pryce

As a half-breed vampire, Ella Grey’s life sucks. She does her best to pass the time killing demons and secretly admiring her Shadow Hunter partner, Micah. He’s hot, dangerous and knows it. He’d be just Ella’s type if he weren’t likely to kill her the moment she put a toe out of line.

A chance encounter with a succubus changes everything. From the second the succubus’s spell washes over them, Ella and Micah are helpless to keep their hands off one another. The sex, when it’s not leaving them on the verge of death, is earth shattering and for the first time in ages Ella is connected with someone on a level she’d feared lost forever. But a dangerous prophecy has been set into motion, and if Ella’s not careful it’ll pull her straight from Micah’s arms and into the deepest bowels of the underworld.

A Romantica® Paranormal erotic romance from Ellora’s Cave

The first book in the Dark series is an intriguing action packed paranormal story that keeps the reader on the edge of their seat.

Half-breed vampire Ella Grey does her best to pass the time killing demons and secretly admiring her Shadow Hunter partner, Micah.  He’s hot dangerous and he knows it, he’d be her just her type if he wasn’t just waiting for a reason to kill her. But then a demon hunt turns into a fight for their life with a succubus that changes everything and now somehow they are mated for life, her sire is back, and the Vampire Queen wants her dead? How’d that happen?

The fast paced and intriguing plot starts off with a bang and the excitement keeps growing as the battles escalate between the good guys and the bad guys.  The tension builds as the line between the two are not clearly marked and the reader has to decide just who to root for.  The author brings the gripping story to life with vivid images and strong, bewitching characters that the reader can easily relate to.

The attraction between Micah and Ella radiates from every page and the sex scenes explode with passion and leave the reader sizzling.  The author portrays the emotions, passion and personalities of all the characters with intense detail and the reader feels as if they know the characters personally.

The author has created a paranormal world where there are shades of gray that keeps the reader guessing and incorporated some unique elements that add depth to the story.  All the characters are intriguing and leave the reader wanting to know more and the author ensures that the reader is enraptured with them and the world they live in.

Once I started reading, there was no way I could put this story down until it was finished.  I love the spin on the Vlad Tepes legend and the characters that she has created have certainly grabbed my attention and I am looking forward to the next one.Dark Cravings
