Not much romance, lots of fighting
on September 8, 2013
Fighting may be the author's passion or it may just be the passion he decided to give his character, but it wasn't really enough to carry the entire book for me.
Josiah is a young MMA fighter who, mid-training run, stumbles into the hidden world of vampires -- oh, I'm sorry -- "mani" that surrounds him. He is quickly sucked into their orbit. The love story seemed a bit tangential to the story and most of the plot is conveyed during a pillow talk info dump towards the end of the book, making it difficult for me to care.
The book isn't the worst written self-published paranormal out there, but there is certainly some room for improvement.
Overall, the author's world isn't really one that appeals to me that much. The details about the carni and the mani and the triat just seemed obviously contrived, as did the ending.
