It's obvious the glowing reviews of the audio book are written by the authors family, friends or diehard fans.
And there are very few of them.
Some authors such as Neil Gaiman are wonderful at reading their own books. This one is not.
I wish I could have given 2-1/2 stars.
This novel had a new interesting take on vampires from any other vampire book I have ever read. It was refeshing to read something a little different from the norm. It made reading about vampires new and refreshing. It wasn't all blood-sucking, and taking lives. It was more than that. It was a love story of two very different people who fit so well together.
The romance between Katherine and Matthaya in 1606 was swoon-worthy! Their love for each other was so passionate, raw, and I electrifying. I absolutely loved these two together. They were true soulmates. I was completely invested in these characters and their story. I felt like I was experiencing their emotions as I read. These characters had to deal with some not so pleasant people and situations in their lives. I was routing for them the whole way and hoping that everything would work out for them in the end.
The ending came a little too quickly for me. I didn't want this story to end. I feel like these characters have so much more story to tell. I am hoping that the story will not end here. If it does, at least I enjoyed their story while it lasted.
* I received an ARC of this book from the author in return for an honest review.
The premise of the novel involves a vampiric love story, but it is filled with tragedy and dark emotions that immediately draw you in. Many times I find that these vampire novels are overdone, but that is not the case with Dark Diary. It is one of a kind novel that brings out the horrific nature of the vampire as well as a romance that will become trapped in your heart and stay with you forever.
P. Anastasia writes with a hand similar to classic authors such as Jane Austen. Her detailing is not overdone, but it does draw you into the story and let you experience it for yourself without forcing you to see the plot or characters a certain way. She presents vampires in a way that separates them from humans to show that even though they do come from humans, they are an entirely different species. Her simple descriptions for this are remarkable, and they demonstrate the pain of dying and the human condition within a creature that has escaped humanity altogether.
“In all art, there is passion,” he clarified, pressing the lid of the box closed. “And there is no passion in what we are.”
Overall, Dark Diary is clearly a hidden gem of the literary world and it needs to be read. If you are a horror fan or a romance fan, you will love this book. It is a breath of fresh air.
