About the Author

Abigail Gibbs was born and raised in deepest, darkest Devon. She is currently studying for a BA in English at the University of Oxford.

She splits her time between her studies, stories and family, and uses coffee to survive all three.

The single biggest problem with the entire Dark Heroine series is going to be the scale and cast. Nine universes with nine heroines and their respective baggages or love stories is going to be problem. Autumn doesn't make a whole lot of sense - she is just a bit whining and pathetic at points. Running parallel to Violet's story is counter-productive - we know what happens. We know that Autumn is the Heroine long before she does - so the mysterious secret is not a mystery at all. Interestingly, Gibbs opts to omit their actual meeting. The real story begins when Kaspar and Violet visit Athenea and in actual fact I think 99% of readers will remain more interested in their complicated love story than in the insipid nature of Fallon and Autumn's. The constant references to Fallon's love for Autumn but the difference in their ages then the assumption that that is quickly forgotten about once she is 16 is rather disturbing. Also Kaspar claims the Sagean court is morally stricter… hmmm. I think his dad was a bit stricter! I think Gibbs has an engaging style and I like the quirky Britishness of these novels and I also like the freedom in them - the lack of preachy morality for example - but Harper Collins also has to start being more responsible when it comes to producing quality edited versions of these novels. DWAV is disgracefully error-ridden. AR isn't too bad but Harper Collins doesn't seem to mind charging A fiver at least a time. Gibbs needs to think carefully about book 3 and how she is going to introduce this third universe with all its rules, its heroines and romantic relationships or it's going to get mighty crowded!

This was a difficult book for me to review, let me say first that I loved Dinner with a Vampire the first time I read it, I actually started reading it on Wattpad then on kindle when it came out. As soon as I discovered that Autumn Rose was due out I pre-ordered it and re-read Dinner since it had been awhile but I must admit I didn't enjoy it as much on the second reading. The night before Autumn was released reviews started appearing on goodreads a couple of people loved it but most were surprised and disappointed that no real advancement was made from the original and this story runs parallel to Violets, this surprised and disappointed me also since I'd not read anything beforehand I just assumed the story would move forward to the third heroine.
I stopped reading at around 30% in for a while since I wasn't sure about it at all, my main problem was Autumn I found her difficult to like.
Around half way in I found myself starting to enjoy this book more, I'm sorry to say that before this I was reading for the sake of it, Autumn started to soften and therefore I found her more likable and easier to read but for me the book didn't really come alive until Violet and Kasper made their appearance in Athenea.
The last 20% was compulsive reading and now I can't wait for the next book but I must admit if I'm being totally honest I was disappointed with the first half in particular, I wasn't thrilled when I realised that this book doesn't really move the story forward at all but after reading this I can see why it was necessary, we needed the story of the first Heroine in order to move forward but even understanding Autumns grief over her grandmother and the fact that she's only fifteen I really struggled to like and understand her which is what made the reading of this book, certainly early on a chore and not a pleasure, this said I'm glad I stuck with it.

This was a highly anticipated book, I read the original and ordered second part as soon as I was available on kindle. I must say I am very disappointed and have not been able to finish. The main character is difficult to like and does not hold me as a reader. The lack of chemistry between the leads is also another factor but saying that I did think they were brother and sister in the previous book so perhaps this threw me. Having read other reviews I will preserver to the end just to get closure on Violet and Kasper. Will not be reading anymore in this series.

Autumn Roses' character wasn't as well developed as Violets, it seemed as if she was supposed to be admired but unfortunately came across as a little neurotic and not well put together. Also her romance with Fallon has no spark compared to that of Violets and Kaspars, literally it was such a boring romance.
Another really annoying point was that Violet and Kaspars characters were brought out at the end of the book?! (Which was probably the most exciting part of the book)
It's as if this book was rushed but I found the book boring compared to the first in my opinion.

I wasnt sure that I wanted to read autumn rose's story but im glad I did. better written than the first book in my opinion and with fewer holes in the story telling, by which I mean parts of the story where I felt that the author assumes you knew what she was talking about. I loved book 1. I love book 2. bring on number 3 I say!

I don't read much because it takes a lot for me to really get captured by a book but this book(s) have really done that for me. There's a few things with the storylines that I think don't match up but I love the overall impact of it.
