Great read from a new author,
This review is from: Stormrise: Special Edition (The Storm Chronicles Book 1) (Kindle Edition)
I was gifted a copy from the author for an honest review.
This is a new author with her very first release and this book was amazing. I was very impressed how Ms. Knizley had you falling in love with the sexy vampire, Francois, to finding my own admiration for the sloppy Detective Levac and a true witty and talented Detective Raven Storm aka dhampyr. Her writing skills in this story are truly fantastic as she pulls you and refuses to let you go. This is definitely an author you want to watch for. She has left this book open for another and from the looks of it, it won't be soon enough.
On a case searching for clues to the murder of Nathan King and Victoria Laveau where they are found literally with their stomachs turned inside out and signs of voodoo activity, they have stepped into a lot more than either of them planned.
Being the daughter of the Mistress of the City, Raven not only is a detective but the true protector of her mother. Being born half vampire and half human, her priorities are split between the job she loves and her dedication to her mother. Attending one of the meetings with the town, Raven is introduced to Francois DuGuerre, a vampire sure to sweep anyone off their feet. Is she able to start a relationship with Francois or is her job going to take her in directions that will keep her from getting to know someone that could be of importance in her life? With every clue that Raven and Detective Levac discover, more questions will come to the surface.
I truly loved this story and can't wait till the next book comes out in the series.
