I would recommend this for ages 16+ and for anyone who loves romance and action.
When I first got an e-reader some 3 years ago, I gorged myself on paranormal reads. Vampires, werewolves, ghosts, etc. It got to the point that I was so over-read on the genre that I stopped reading it altogether. Since it had been a good year since I had dipped my toes, I decided to go back into the mystical and mythological realm and have been reading it again. Luckily for me, titles like Captivated By Crimson have crossed my path.
Brynn Myers' Captivated By Crimson is a vampire/mythical gods/goddesses mixed with human lore bit of goodness. Lead heroine, Nola, her sister Quinn and fellow artist Arianna, are approached by a creepy patron who wishes a special mirror created for a celebration of the bloody-thirsty Hungarian royal, Elizabeth Bathory. While the trio are leery, the money is substantial and agree. What they don't know is that there are things livings in the shadows and under the human's senses that are waging a battle that will touch them in unwanted ways.
The world building is simple and straight-forward. Ms. Myers maps out who is who and what is what in clear, concise wording and imagery. She doesn't feel the need for ponderous history/mythology lessons nor is it needed. The reader easily falls into the story with each of the factions (human, feral, pure-blood) delineated. The story flows effortlessly and engagingly. Her characters are interesting, well developed and colorful. Andrick, Thantos and Manya are gods and goddesses of ancient lore. Ms. Myers gave them each a nice touch of the old and the modern making them completely believable within the story. Her humans, Nola, Arianna and Quinn are quintessential business savvy, modern ladies who know how to get things done. As this is a vampire book there is some murder and mayhem to be found but it is tastefully done. The sex and love scenes are steamy and balanced well between the main action.
Quite a good para read that I was lucky enough to snag.
This book for me had a solid base and a different take on vampires but it lacked in character development. I liked Nola and Andrik for the lead characters but there where so many characters that had their own story lines that their relationship that was being built got lost. And characters were continuing to be added late in the story and they also had their own story lines. With the different story lines that were going on, I didn't feel the passion between Nola and Andrik.
Erzsebet and Paul were great evil vampires bent on destroying and getting revenge. They were easy to hate.
Nola's sister, Quinn, and best friend, Arianna made the story fun and brought lighter moments.
Overall Captivated by Crimson had action and mystery. It was well paced until the last 10% of the book. Then it lost energy. The major part of the story ended around 90%.
This is addictive with a smoldering hot romance. I don't know if it gets any better than this. Carve out some time in your schedule for this. Once you start reading, you won't be able to put this down till the last page is finished. Brava to this author for giving us a reason to love vampires again.
I think she did well in creating the villains, their actions made them evil, but if you listened to their dialogue and inner thoughts you could see how they saw themselves as just and right. I didn’t understand the concept of ferals exactly. Were they inherently evil and unredeemable? I pictured them as zombie-like vampires in some instances but in others they were described as competent warriors.
The pacing was a bit slow for my taste in a romance. But overall, the novel was decent. I just wanted more. The author is talented and I like her style. I could picture everything she described and the scenes she painted. The friendship between the main characters was woven together well. I loved how strong she made her female characters. It was refreshing to read a novel that prominently featured strong females on both sides of the fence. I’m not really sure how to rate this… Did I enjoy it? Eh. Was it technically well-written? Yes.
I would try another novel of hers.
