5.0 out of 5 stars For fans of the brooding tall, dark and handsome as he exhibits both a hero and a villain!, 12 Aug 2009
This review is from: DARK PRINCE (Mass Market Paperback)
There is no arguing that British weather is ever changable and since we've had more rain than sun this summer, this book is perfect for the non-summer read. The barren location of Cornwall and the dreary weather within the novel perfectly illustrate the harsh and dark troubled souls of the brave and plain Jane Heatherington and the typically handsome, yet suspiciously mysterious, Aidan Warrick. So the novel was perfect as I stayed out of the brooding weather outside and induldged in a fitting, gothic romance novel.
Set in the 19th Century, the new arrival of a Mr Aidan Warrick stirs excitement and rumours through Pentreath but as a mutilated corpse of a woman washes up on shore, Jane's suspisions of the stranger start a chain reaction of doubt and unease as her alcoholic, widowed father is forced to bind Jane to Aidan Warrick in servitude as means of settling a fianancial dedbt he owes him.
Throughout the novel, Aidan's somewhat kind and generous nature towards her both confuses Jane and causes unease, as his disappearances at night and the scarred and troubled history,regarding her father, he keeps concealed, leaving a curious web of riddles, regarding his damaged and brooding character to mystery, which Jane attempts to solve.
This makes her both desire him and fear him as she battles her desires and his heated looks whilst attempting to unravel mysteries surrounding his character, as whispers of wrecker's and smugglers are feared to be in Pentreath, leaving trails of unease and suspision back to Aidan. Is Aidan Warrick the leader of this activity or is he the Dark Prince of Jane's dreams?
The depth and vastness of the characters as they both battle between light and dark within their souls makes this an absolute page turner! After reading the book twice I am certain I will buy and read again. If you are a fan of literature such as 'Jane Eyre', this is an absolute must read as I couldn't help but feel similar undertones between them. I will be reading more of Eve Silver's work.
