L. Diane Wolfe’s short paranormal story of a young woman with a group of vampires on a quest to find a magical hidden fortress was a delightful tale that finished too soon. Anna works in a bar helping her father scrimping away every bit of coin coming her way to fulfil her dream of explorations. So, when she purposely eavesdrops on a group of travellers and listens to their plan of seeking Zancrela, Anna grabs her chance and offers her help.
Like Anna, the readers are unaware of the true colors of Victor and his gang of friends but soon enough Anna discovers that she could be their next meal. The journey has its share of adventures, what with Victor having to protect the human amongst them from his own clan and having to travel thru the night and sleep thru the day. But I loved how the author characterized Anna as this determined woman who wants to show her mettle to those who sees her just flesh and bones. The romance is sweet with nothing too overtly done and having a few chapters in Victor’s POV adds to the tenderness in their relationship.
In Darkness- The Vampire is a short story and like always I wished that there was more time for the love to develop and the thrill of the adventure during their journey in the forest. In Darkness- The Vampire surely has the potential for a full fledged novel though the author has wonderfully captured the meaty element of the story in an exciting way and I wouldn’t mind a series to be developed with Anna and Victor.
Souls shrouded in darkness…
Stuck working as a barmaid for her demanding father, Anna dreams of adventure. When mysterious strangers enter the bar, she overhears they seek Zancrela, an ancient fortress filled with treasure and a magical library. Taking her chance, she offers to guide them. The conditions: deliver Zancrela or die.
As they journey through the wilderness, she discovers their secret: they are vampires. And most view her as food. One takes interest in her and her heart dares to hope, but it might not be enough to change her fate. Will Anna find Zancrela or become a vampire morsel?
