Kiannna’s life is changed on one fateful night when her true love Shane decides to become a vampire. The same vampires that turns Shane also takes Kianna’s life. Now her mission is to slay vampires whoever and whenever she can. Kianna is human by day and angel by night allowing her to hunt for vampires. She comes face to face with Shane when he tries to help her escape from a day-time vampire attack. She is slowly losing her desire to hurt him. She is fighting her feelings of lust. Both Shane and Kianna are attacked and Kianna finds herself once again in front of the vampire that changed hers and Shane’s life that one fateful night. She is ready to accept death but she doesn’t get it because night has came upon them...
Although this is short and left with a cliffhanger, I did enjoy the whole good vs bad. I love that Kianna and Shane were once together and still have feelings for one another even after all that has gone down. This is a great start to a great series. I look forward to see what comes of the situation there in and how they resolve everything. I do hope that the story has a little more heat in the next part. I would like to think that a vampire and angel could be explosive when they get together. All in all a good read!
A Dark Passion lived up to its name. Ms. Hancock weaves a delicious, sexually charged tale, full of blood, betrayal, secrets, and an air of gothic love. Not your average vampire story, this one stands out from many I’ve read. Alara is a feisty, silver tongued, assassin, caught up in a job she never should’ve taken. Hired to end the life of Tyroz, the sexy man who haunts her dreams after a one night stand, she finds herself on the opposite end of her assassin brotherhood when she fails to kill him. Talk about a one night stand effecting the rest of your life!
I liked Alara’s strength, and unique skill set, I just wished we’d gotten a chance to see more of what lie beneath. At times she felt a bit two dimensional. As for the hero, or in my mind, anti-hero, Tyroz. I’m still torn. He had desirable qualities, power, attractiveness, and loyalty. But it took him so long to come around to Alara, it kind of soured me. If he had fewer flaws, or more time to make up for them, I would’ve enjoyed the story and him much more.
The passion between them boiled over, but their connection on a personal, none sexual level, lacked. It left you wondering why they went through such great lengths for one another. I felt like they needed a deeper bond to carry the story fully. Without giving away too much, I felt like there were great concepts that simply needed to be fully fleshed out.
