More About the Author

Adina West grew up on a remote property on Australia's east coast, in country New South Wales. She spent most of her childhood curled up with a book, and her first teenage job was shelving books at the local library, where she was cautioned more than once for reading them instead of putting them away.

Her first stories were laboriously typed up with two fingers on her parents' old typewriter. Her dream of one day being a published writer progressed much faster after she learned to touch type and switched to a computer.

Adina lives in Sydney's leafy north-west with her IT guru husband, two children, and a couple of unwelcome possums who really don't know how to take a hint.

Dark Child was originally released in serial form which is what stopped me reading it from the start as I was worried that if I actually found myself enjoying it that I wouldn't want to wait to read the next installment.

I was right to be hesitant...

When I was asked by Momentum if I would be interested in reviewing Dark Child, and it being a book that had already caught my eye, I jumped at the chance and was lucky enough to be sent the full omnibus editon. Thank goodness... If I'd only been able to read it in pieces then I would have been very frustrated and wouldn't have enjoyed the reading experience anywhere near as much as I actually did.

We start off with Kat (Katerina) who, on the surface, is your average, everyday twenty something with a carreer in pathology. But after some fainting and sudden nausia prompts Kat to test her own blood without anyone knowing, and the tests produce some very strange results, she soon realises that there is something strangely wrong with her especially after she starts to crave raw meat.

After a very odd reading from a psychic, and an interesting job offer which sees her moving to New York, Kat is soon thrust into a world that has been hidden from humans for centuries, a world full of powerful beings -- some who will stop at nothing to protect her believing she is to fill some ancient prophecy, others who want to destroy her -- where she begins to learn the truth about who and what she really is.

West's wonderful descriptive ability makes you feel as much a part of her world as the characters in it so even though the story took a while to get going, it felt like I was really getting to know Kat and made you see everything that was happening as clearly as watching a movie.

This series must be read in order. This is the omnibus edition of the first serial book containing all five episodes in their entirety.

Kat has always known she was different. Different from her half brothers... Different from her mother... And different from anyone she has ever met. Maybe she is like her mysterious father. She still feels the guilt of his leaving even though he had no cause to even know she existed. The only bright spot in her life is the wolf that befriended her ages ago (she tells herself he is a pet... Some domestic wolfish breed... No REAL wolf would come that close to civilization right?) He makes the differences she has to hide almost bearable. Being able to run like crazy and not even breathe hard caused her no end of trouble in school... Not to mention her literal nose for blood. But things are getting stranger yet... Always healthy she has no clue why she's been feeling so off lately ... And just today she fainted... Wonder why?

This is a fast paced paranormal serial where one episode blends seamlessly into the next so well you will be disappointed greatly if you have to wait for the next episode! Book one is definitely an amazing fish out of water coming of age story fraught with confusion and missteps that keep you guessing what will happen next! I really loved it and can't wait to read the first episode of the new serial novel Dark Child (Covens Rising): Episode 1 to find out what happens next!!!

***This serial book series is suitable for mature young adult through adult readers

I'm not exactly sure how I feel about this book. I didn't love it, but I didn't exactly hate it either. There where definitely parts I found annoying especially at the beginning which is why I took so long to read this. We start off with Kat testing her own blood after having a few bouts of nausea and a fainting spell. After her 'discovery' of a rare type of blood Kat is then offered what seems like a too good to be true job offer in New York. Kat is soon thrust into a world of creatures only conceivable in her worst nightmares. We join Kat as she struggles with her place in this new world, and learns just exactly what she is. The beginning off this book to me was just chocka block with unnecessary information. There was so much information and shifting view point that I really struggled to get through the first couple of chapters. Just as I was about to give up and add this to my DNF pile, I had a breakthrough. I have no idea when it happened but around 38% through I was actually having an okay time reading it and I soon raced through to near the end. The ending however, didn't live up I found it just as bad as the first half but for different reasons. It just seemed all so sudden. After all that running and hiding its just all over like that? Seriously? I was also left with wayyy more questions than I should have been for a book with no follow on. Although it may sound like I absolutely hated this book there where some redeeming qualities. We're introduced to the idea that all supernatural beings (vamps/weres/etc) are from the same race but they, individually choose whether to shift into 'primitive' forms or not. Those that do shift are looked down upon by others deem themselves too good to do such wild things.Read more ›
