Review: Midnight Conquest by A Chick Who Reads

 Book Review for Midnight Conquest by A Chick Who Reads

Midnight Conquest (vampire romance, paranormal romance) (Bonded By Blood Vampire Chronicles)Review: Arial's debut novel Midnight Conquest is a great example of two genres, paranormal and historical. Plus it doesn't deal with things that are all sweetness and light. Davina's husband Ian, is abusive to both her and her child. At times the book is graphic but never gruesome, which is a good thing, because you really don't want gruesome in your romance.At first I wasn't sure what to expect from Broderick. He was so angry. Throughout most of the story I felt sorry for Davina. Nothing worked out well for her. The sad truth of the matter is that the abuse was all too common for women in those days, but Ian really took the cake. You really cheered when he is believed to be dead.

And speaking of other villainous characters, there's the gypsy girl Veronique. I know that I should have felt some sympathy for her, but I truly couldn't. She came across as a nasty bitch and when she finally got taken down a few pegs, I cheered Broderick on for doing it.

All the baddies get it, though, and there is a happily ever after…so YAY! I loved this book!

Arial gives us a teaser of the next book in the series and I really can't wait for it.

Rating: 5 out of 5 flowers

OMG I can't say thank you enough for such a superb review!!! I'm honored!Yes, you were supposed to hate Veronique…that's the way I wrote her, so don't feel bad about not sympathizing for her. If you did, I did not do my job right! I've had a few of my readers tell me, “He shoulda slapped her again!!!” LOL

Fabulous review without spoilers. I love it! Thank you sooooo much for taking the time to read Midnight Conquest. I'm plugging away at the keyboard to meet my deadline for Book 2. Wish me luck! 😉

That's my two pence…
Arial 😉
