City of the Fallen

Dark Tides #1

By: Diana Bocco

Blurb

Five years ago, vampires came out of hiding and took over the world. It was meant to be a quick enslavement but it turned into a bloody battle that brought humanity to the brink of extinction.

Isabelle Bryant is one of the “lucky” survivors, now living in hiding, scavenging for food through deserted towns.

And she’s tired of it.

So she’s devised a plan: find the king of the vampires and drive a stake through his heart.

Except that wickedly sensual king Marcus is nothing like the monster she expected. And while landing on his bed was part of the plan all along, discovering that he might hold the key to humanity’s survival certainly wasn’t. The catch? Saving humanity also means ensuring vampire survival. It means giving up hope for a return to a human-ruled world.

As sparks fly and hate becomes heat, Isabelle must pick a side — before the darkness devours them all.

My Rating: 4.5 out of 5 Stars

My Review:
I haven’t read a vampire book in months. There are so many books about vampires, sometimes it just gets tiring reading the same thing over and over again. This book stuck out though. It wasn’t the usual human-vampire love. It stuck out. Like good books about angels, good books about vampires are even harder to find. Because authors have exhausted the whole vampire idea, it definitely takes more effort to find a book that stands out like this one. I didn’t give it the full five stars because the author didn’t fully explain some things that the reader will come across throughout the book. But there isn’t much lack of explaining, and it doesn’t affect the main point. I think that anybody who loves vampires is going to love this book!

Author Info

I’ve been a fan of all kinds of dark creatures since I was a kid (even before I discovered Stephen King at the age of 10). If it crawls in the night and tugs at your covers while you’re sleeping, chances are I’ve written about it. It’s probably no surprise that I’m a big fan of old buildings, urban exploring and things that go bump in the night. Oh, and Halloween, of course — but that should go without saying.

Growing up, I wanted to be Indiana Jones. I ended up not pursuing a degree in Archaeology (although I toyed with the idea for a while) but I did become a huge lover of travel and history. Aside from traveling to all corners of the world, I’ve also lived in five countries in three continents — including three years in Siberia and two in Vietnam. I’m currently living in Thailand.

I have a soft spot for animals (which is why you can be sure that in my stories, the dog will always make it) and right now have three wonderful — but slightly crazy — dogs in my life. And yes, they move with me from country to country. Too bad dogs can’t accumulate frequent flyer miles!

In my other life, I also write nonfiction: articles, books, and even quizzes for the Discovery Channel website. I really can’t help it — I’m a nerd at heart and love research and discovering new things. Could be the Indiana Jones in me pushing me along.

When it comes to life, I’m pretty fearless. I figure life is too short to live it too safely — so I take risks and I try to have fun, whether that means snowshoeing in the middle of Siberia or going ghost-hunting in an abandoned asylum. And yes, I’ve done both.
