“One moment can change your life forever…
A chance encounter on a darkened street draws Violet Lee into a world beyond her wildest imaginings–a timeless place of vast elegance and immeasurable wealth, of beautiful mansions and lavish parties, where a decadent group of friends lives for pleasure alone. A place from which there was no escape…no matter how hard Violet tries.
All the riches in the world can’t mask the darkness that lies beneath the gilded surface, embodied in the charismatic but dangerous Kasper Varn.
Violet and Kasper surrender to a passion that transcends their separate worlds–but it’s a passion that comes with a price.”
I remember Christmas of 2009 was the first time I discovered Wattpad, an online area where aspiring authors share their works for feedback from fans. During that time, I also discovered a little story called “Dinner With A Vampire: Did I Mention I’m Vegetarian?” Immediately I was immersed in the supernatural world that Gibbs created and I was inspired to start writing myself.
After months, and soon, years of avid reading and enjoying this book, it was announced that it was going to be published! As soon as it came out in March of this year, I quickly snagged myself a copy and almost immediately dug back into the world of Violet and the Varns.
To put it simply, The Dark Heroine: Dinner With A Vampire novel was written with such grace and the writing flowed exceptionally well. Some people can be put off about the switching of perspectives between Violet and Kaspar, however, it doesn’t hinder the story in the slightest.
Violet is the main character, and she holds her own when it came to her being held hostage in a mansion full of vampires. I found no annoyances with her character that could be attributed with heroines in certain other vampire novels (*hint hint* Twilight). Like Violet, you are introduced first hand to this interesting world of vampires and their surprising human world connection.
I would recommend this book for anyone who is invested in any supernatural novels, (this could count as a late YA novel as there is some sexual content). You will not be disappointed, I assure you.
