Review: Dark Child (Covens Rising): Omnibus Edition
Dark Child (Covens Rising): Omnibus Edition by Adina West
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
This series is just getting better and better. Where else can you get a love triangle that isn't annoying, a main character who is a wonderful balance of tough and vulnerable, and some really unique vampire/shifter world building? I've got this author on my must read list.
Dark Child: Covens Rising picks up where we last left Kat. She's in Paris, hiding out, pretending to be dead. There's a growing concern about her impending transition, but she does a good job of hiding most of the signs from her caretakers. Jonathan, who we used to hate, ends up coming in very handy for Kat and her deception. Kat's many suitors end up resurfacing in this one pretty early on, giving us some wonderful sexual tension, resolving any misunderstandings pretty easily, and reigniting rivalry for her affections.
Poor Kat is torn between even more worlds than before in this one. Not only is she struggling to balance between the shifters and vampires, but she's also introduced to a new element in the families of power (aka witches). The big bad is still the Vodas, but we're not quite sure where all these new characters will end up on the spectrum of good and evil. I really enjoyed getting new faces in Ben and Yara. I can't wait to see their completely messed up YA romance goes in the future.
This series is addictive and amazing. If you haven't read Dark Child: The Awakening, and you have even a remote interest in paranormal books -- what are you waiting for?? This series will knock your socks off and keep you reading late into the night.
