I read this book in one night. It was an easy read for me.
I have read Nina Bang's other "Castle of Dark Dreams" books as well.
I enjoyed seeing Eric ,Sparkle,Ganymede, Edge, and the
other characters again. The plant idea was very different.
I do wish there had been more plot line for the characters,
Cinn and Dacian. I could have used more gritty fights too.
But, Nina Bangs has me for an auto-read every time.
Her Castle of dreams series is a fun place to visit.
Wish there was a real Hotel, where wishes come true.
I would sign up in a heart beat.

Read this one in about 5 hours. I found it to be fun and entertaining. Enjoyed the development of the talking plants. I was wanting more details of the final battle going on in the castle. It (battle) centered mainly on Cinn, but I found myself interested in more than the going ons of her entourage. Outside of the ending, I would like to read another one book about Cinn, her vampy man and Vince the talking plant:)

I bought this book on a whim before a 5 hour flight. I wanted something lighthearted, easy to read and fantasy-based. This book delivered on those promises. I remained engaged the entire time and I developed interest in the characters. Now, this book isn't FANTASTIC but it's exactly what I was looking for at the time. I just wanted to forget about everything around me. I would've liked to seen more character development because I did feel like I was missing out on back-story. When I bought the book I checked to make sure it wasn't part of a series, but maybe it is? The ending had a lot of potenial to be cooler, but all-in-all - this was a good read!

Not a good representation of this author's work. This book was unbelievable and at times boring. Though all of her books are fantasy, this one was just over the top and I could not get involved with her characters. The only thing I found interesting was, of course, Sparkle and Ganymede. Gotta love a fat, lazy cat.

I love this book as well as all the other books I have read by Nina Bangs . The way the story is told it make you feel like your right there while it is happening. I find myself laughing out loud and crying while reading the story makes me wish that there truely was a Castle of Dark Dreams in my neck of the woods because I most definately would be visiting it .. Once I start reading the book I can't stop it keeps you so intrigued . I tell all of my friends that it is a must read specially if there love life is getting dull all they have to do is read this book and there engines will get kicked into high gear .. I could keep going on about it but TRUST that this book is absolutely amazing you will not be dissappointed for purchasing it...

I love that she brings in all of the characters again and again. Learning their stories just makes it even more exciting. I think this one was one of my favorites. I really cant wait till she does Baine's story. lots of hints in this one that he is there for not the reasons we think. cant wait for a few more months for murmers story. this was fun!

Why I chose it: Okay, so the title has the words "wicked" and "vampire" and the cover has a rather pale lady with many ear piercings (ooh! a rebel!) and dark red lips, making the whole vaguely erotic. I imagine that's pretty typical, but I found it attractive enough to pick up.

I don't think that this book will make it into my hall of fame of best books ever, but it was... entertaining. It certainly taught me about the lengths to which implausibility is stretched in the paranormal romance world.

"So, here's the deal. Yes, vampires do exist, along with lots of other nonhumans. Edge and I are cosmic troublemakers. My specialty is creating sexual chaos throughout the universe. Edge is the cosmic troublemaker in charge of death. You can guess what he does. Bain is a demon, and yes, Holgarth is a real wizard." She held up her hand to stop Cinn from interrupting. "Let me finish."

So, this is the world I'm walking into? Okay fine, I'll play.

Cinn, the main character, is a botanist who makes... special... plants. Telepathic plants, plants that make you fall in love, plants that grow off of sex and not water and sun. Let me repeat: telepathic plants, and plants that sacrifice themselves out of love.

I am serious.

Aside from the ridiculous plot (the goddess of medicinal plants is after Cinn because of her unnatural experiments), I found the heroine to be rather flat. She has not much of a personality aside from worrying about her plants and wanting to sleep with a vampire. It all felt a bit... I don't know, too much, like the author had run out of ideas and simply put random ideas together to build her plot. It didn't quite hold water for me, even from an internal perspective.
