Eternal Island

Synopsis: 
  A place where vampires rule, witches play, danger lurks and dreams really do come true.

Eternal Island is a paranormal suspense novel, deeply rooted into myth. Vampires and magic form a unique backdrop to a love story with long reaching consequences. Human girl Ariana Lochalan finds herself transported from the relative calm of her ‘Nowhere, Arkansas’ life into a diametrically opposite existence when she discovers she is a powerful witch and meant to wed High Vampire of Eternal Island, Abe Cambridge. Despite first-sight magnetism, the two protagonists are being pushed apart, obstacles tripping them at every step, outside forces interfering and threatening their peace, and ultimately their lives. A world rich in magic and intrigue, Eternal Island is the first instalment of a saga which has love at its core and delves through the mire that is human nature in a turmoil of feeling and emotion.

Would courage, resilience and love be enough to bring together two soul mates?

How much would you sacrifice to save the one who owns your heart?

My review:

Okay that is it, I decided I want to live on this island. I mean seriously they get to live on a tropical island that no one can find and shop, live, love and eat like royalty. They do not really pay for anything so the money they earn is fun money. I would totally live out my last days there.

I loved this book not only because it fell right into the middle of the genre I love to read but because I felt like I could step right into the page and stand facing every dilemma the well rounded characters were up against. The only character that left me going “huh?” was the second in command Max. I think he was spelled into being the way he was at the end but I cannot be sure because we did not find much out about him other than he was married to someone he did not love and having an affair with the villainess who did not love him and that he was second to the High Vampire or Vampire King. 


Our leading lady started out as a normal human that was in a catatonic state of some sort and is awoken and whisked away to a different destiny.  The story moves the main characters through one twist after another and the love story thickens along with the espionage. I loved every aspect of this book and I even read the sneak peek at the end for the next book. Now I cannot wait for the next book in the series! 


I rated this 5 out of 5!

 Forbidden Touch:

Synopsis:

Ciera has to break the ultimate vampire law to save Mitch, her mortal soulmate, from a terrible fate. Dane, the vampire who would do anything to win her affection, is responsible for Mitch being framed for murder. A fast chain of events is set in motion, which leads to the soulmates being torn apart and Ciera to lose her heart to the one person she has always despised, Dane. She finds herself completely in love with both men. But a rogue vampire puts them all in grave danger. Can she keep them both? Or will she have to accept one lover’s sacrifice, to save the other?

My review:

 A murder mystery involving the supernatural was not something that was expected when I read the title of the book that I needed to review. I fell in love with the characters and was thrilled to be thrown into a story that led me from one interesting location to another. 


Let’s first meet Mitch who is a workaholic cop on a case that has mystified pretty much everyone since it began a month ago.  He has been working night and day on the case with no leads as to who is leaving completely drained corpses lying around without any injuries. He cannot wrap his head around how they are losing all their blood.  When he succumbs to exhaustion he dreams of a woman. This woman is our leading lady, Asabel. 


Asabel is a vampire is a finder. She finds rogue vampires. She has done the forbidden though; she has fallen in love with Mitch.  Their story at first is complicated because she watches him while she is invisible and he has no idea and then when they meet it becomes more complicated. The twists and turns and nearly exhausting drama and intrigue kept me glued to page after page of this exciting mystery.  


I rated it 5 out of 5.   

About the author :

 Kristie Drennin Haigwood-
 Ever find it hard to talk about yourself? Yeah, I have that problem, too. I have been married to my soulmate for 8 years, who wouldn't pick up a book unless promised that it was filled with pictures. I have a beautiful 7 year old daughter, Riley, that talks too much and has a very vivid imagination. I have no clue where she got those traits. My step-son, Hayden, is 16 and very into football and hunting. I am a writer of paranormal suspense romance. If you enjoy a great love story with a massive amount of drama about angels, demons, ghosts, vampires, witches and fairy tale creatures brought to life through a twisted mind, then you might just enjoy reading my work.
