Review : Dark Child

Dark Child (Omnibus Edition)
Dark Child
Adina West
This intriguing urban fantasy follows the story of Kat Chanter, who discovers that the world she knows is controlled by ancient creatures who feed on blood. And she might just be one of them ...

Lately things have been getting weird for pathology technician Kat Chanter. She's been craving raw meat, and having dreams so realistic they're scary. When she accepts a job offer from the prestigious Hema Castus Research Institute, she hopes she'll have the chance to discover what's wrong with her, but instead, her move to New York thrusts her headlong into a treacherous hidden world, where the wrong move could be fatal . . .

Tarot, witchcraft and astrology all take on a frightening resonance in Dark Child's richly imagined alternative reality where vampiric beings live among us, hidden by magic. Dark romance tangles with paranormal fantasy and page-turning suspense in this enthralling tale of 'dark child' Kat Chanter, half-human and half-vampire, who has woken an ancient prophecy and must face a formidable destiny.

My Review: I would like to thank netgalley and the publishers for the chance to read this book.
    When I first picked up this book I did not know what to expect. I read about the first 100 pages and I almost DNF. I read on because I wanted to give this a chance. I am glad I did. This book picked up and then ran with a great and wonderful story. This story is supernatural with plenty of action and adventure. I thank goodness I am stubborn if I did not continue reading I would have missed this wonderful debut novel. I also think it was great how we have supernatural being who live on blood but are not vampires, and also have different attributes to their abilities. It was refreshing to see a new take on the supernatural and it also made me keep reading to see what would happen next. Anyone who likes supernatural creatures will love this book.
