Book Review - Eden's Hell by Dawne Dominique

I received Eden's Hell as part of Bewitching Book Tours. Thank you very much, Dawne, for giving me this opportunity.

Face it, there is a glut of vampires to read about. For me, the biggest mistake any of them make is not having the vampires drink blood. What's the point of the fangs if you're not going to do anything with them?

That's not the case here.

I found myself reading an interesting blend of sensuality and intrigue. The play of mythology and vampirism was intriguing, and kept me going through the end of the book, wanting to know more and devour the whole thing.

Overall, this is a good book. Much better than many I've read in the same genre. When the sex comes out, it's not just the loving passion of the main couple; there is some hot and naughty scenes with the villianess. I appreciated them for revealing more of what a callous bitch the bad girl is, and also because I like a little naughty now and then.

The few flaws I picked out were not enough to really detract from the story, and weren't enough to make me put it down. Granted, I tend to be a little harsher on books because of the Inner Editor all authors carry. So I notice word choices that could be better, or more especially feel when an ending could have been more gracefully handled.

Everything leading up to the last chapter or so made Eden's Hell worth reading. There is so much torment in Addison, that you can't help but pity him. Satrina is perfectly wicked, and yet you can't hate her for it. Eva is innocent yet dedicated, with a strength that's completely admirable.

Dawne Dominique has put together a good book that stands out in a diluted genre.

Eden's Hell, I: The First

In the beginning…

God created man and called him Adam, a fine specimen replicated in his own image. He then created woman to ease Adam’s loneliness and named her Lillith. Unfortunately, God realized his mistake too late in giving woman free will, for she would rule her domain—not man.

When Lillith left Adam, God created another for his first-born son and gave her the name Eve and a kingdom called Eden, but by then it was too late, for he’d unleashed Hell into the world of man.

Dark Diary, II: The First

Daniella Rolfe, a seven-century old First vampire is unwittingly drawn together with a City of Winnipeg detective, who happens to be investigating a string of some rather bizarre serial murders. It doesn’t take long for her to discover that this mere mortal man holds more power over her than any she's ever known.

And Aiden…he's only dreamed about women like Daniella.

Blood battles and broken vows are just the beginning of Daniella Rolfe’s woes.

Kindred Blood, III: The First

There is nothing thicker—or stronger—than kindred blood.

Being married in Scotland sounds like the perfect romantic getaway, doesn't it? For Daniella Rolfe and Aiden Blackmore, the nightmare they'd left behind was just the beginning.  When Aiden is kidnapped, Daniella will go to any lengths to ensure he's brought safely back to her, no matter the amount of blood to be shed. Together with Spencer Dalton, a private investigator she hired to help find Aiden, they begin to unravel more than they bargained for.

Broken vows are the least of Daniella's worries now.
