Editorial Reviews

Review

"If you haven't read the first book yet, and you are looking for a supernatural thriller series that has a little bit of romance, a little bit of violence, and a lot of action, I highly recommend you get Cruxim and Creche!" Literary R&R  

"I finished reading Creche in a few hours and paranormal romantic fiction is not one of the genres that I ormally choose to read. This book is a treat for fans of the genre who like their romance laced with the poignancy and tragedy of classic gothic tales." G.R. Yeates

About the Author

Karin Cox edits and writes in her "spare time" while being a fulltime mum to a toddler and to a black cat with the improbable name of "Ping Pong." She is the author of more than 30 trade-published natural history books, biographies, Australian social history books, children's picture storybooks, and travel guides, several of which have won awards. Karin has had poems and short stories published in anthologies worldwide and her ebooks CRUXIM, CRECHE, CREED, WHAT THE SEA WANTS, GROWTH, CAGE LIFE and CROWS & OTHER BEASTS are available on Amazon. Thankfully, the busier she gets, the more creative she is (and the more likely to afford to hire a housekeeper). Karin and her partner live in sunny Australia, where she writes from her deck (overlooking the pool), her study (overlooking her messy desk) or her couch (overlooking Dr Phil, who gives her a lot of inspiration).

I’ll admit when I started reading Creche, I couldn’t remember all of Cruxim but I was slowly reminded of it throughout the entire book. I always appreciate an author more when they don’t just use the first chapter as a recap, and thankfully it was so subtle that it was hardly noticeable.

This book is much more about who Amedeo is, the Cruxim, their ways and how they came to be, with a little vampire action towards the end. Cruxim was quite dark, full of sorrow and sadness, but with the introduction of Skylar, Creche has a much lighter tone and has uplifted the series dramatically, whilst throwing in a little more romance.

The author has such a way of writing that the words just flow on the page, and I soon found myself completely caught up in the story and the history of it all. It has a very descriptive nature, without being over the top, which allowed my imagination to just take over and easily picture the story. Everything indicates that a major battle is on the horizon, so I’m sure the rest of the saga is going to be full of action and I can’t wait to read it.

I received an e-copy from the author in exchange for an honest review.

Creche is the second book in the Dark Guardians Fantasy series by Karin Cox. It follows Amedeo as he learns about his past and discovers many secrets about his kind and his family. Karin Cox really brings to life the Cruxims and the world in which most of them live.

The second book brought on a whole new story while still continuing with the original story line. It was unique and imaginative which held my attention through the whole book which is sometimes hard to do. A quote from the movie Up always come to mind “Squirrel!” A more in-depth look is done on the Cruxim which really brings to light some truths and deceptions. I’ve really come to love the characters and feel a part of the story so I can’t wait to read the final book and see what happens to the vampires, sphinx and angels.

Kathy's Review:

In this follow-up to Cruxim, we learn more about Amadeo’s past – and he does, as well. Another Cruxim, Skylar, finds him almost immediately where book one ends, where he is reeling from the loss of his Sphinx lover, Sabine, at the bottom of the ocean, encased in gold. (oops, book one spoiler alert!!!) She brings him to the stronghold where the Cruxim live, and he learns who he is, who his parents were, and that he has been betrothed to marry someone. After centuries of living alone, it’s hard for him to swallow.

I really loved the first book which introduced Amadeo, Sabine and bad guy Beltran, and this one was enjoyable as well but I had a hard time following some of the names of the Cruxim strongholds and rituals, as they were all foreign-sounding words. Also some of the names of the Cruxim themselves became confusing to me.

However, as far as the plot and character development are concerned, it was a superb follow-up to the first novel. The addition of Skylar as a main character and potential love interest for Amadeo was welcomed, and the continuing love story between Amadeo and Sabine was interesting as well.

At the end of this novel, without giving too much away, there are still a lot of unanswered questions. Can he rescue Sabine? Will he confront Beltran again? How will he help stave off the impending war between the various Creche (segments of Cruxim)? I guess I will have to wait to find out …

If you haven’t read the first book yet, and you are looking for a supernatural thriller series that has a little bit of romance, a little bit of violence, and a lot of action, I highly recommend you get Cruxim and Creche!

I had read the first installment a few years back and I wonder why I never continued on with the next. While the first one was original (Cruxim being Vampires' natural predators) this one was even more special. We finally learn why Amedeo isn't with other of his kind. We also learn about the Cruxim, who they are and why they exist. I love the lore about them. That might have been my favorite part of the story.
While the main character, Amedeo, is a very likeable one, sometimes I felt he was a little too much about 'poor me, every one I loved suffered because of me' kind of guy. Sometimes I felt like slapping him out of it a bit. Still, this didn't make me like him less. It was a fun, short story.

I loved this story! I thought it was much better than the first (Cruxim - must read that first, this cannot be a stand alone read). I am very impressed by the author and cannot wait for the chance to read the sequel! Creche starts right up from where Cruxim left off. Ame learns more about his past and who he is. This book seemed to have more romance and leaving the reader wondering what Ame will do, thus making it difficult to put the book down. :)

This book is so much better than the first one, I was so looking forward to reading this one after the ending of the first and I was not disappointed. There is so much information in this book to explain Ame to himself and us. I loved every single page of this book. There were a few things that I wanted to strangle the characters for but I can over look that with the rest of it.
