Product description

About the Author

Chloe Hammond is an Aquarius, very Aquarius. Born in Liverpool in 1975, she grew up in West Wales, but now lives in Barry in South Wales, with her husband and rescue cats and dogs. She always wanted to write, but life got in the way. Last year she was diagnosed with extreme anxiety and depression, which caused nightmares and sleepless nights. In her typically contrary way she used this to her advantage and the nightmares became this novel, and the sleeplessness nights were when she found time to write it. She has a lovely sea view from her desk, which she gazes at to still her mind so her characters can burst forth and have their say. Chloe frequently submits poetry and short stories to Cake and Quill's charity Anthologies.

I thoroughly enjoyed this book. I wasn't sure what to expect with it being about vampires living in France, but I thought it was great. Can't wait to read 2 and 3!

I voluntarily reviewed an Advanced Reader Copy of this book. Brilliant debut novel by Chloe Hammond, I enjoyed it very much, the characters and storyline were very good at drawing you in, the story is told through two friends with alternate chapters from each friend's point of view, it helped the story flow well.

This is well written but I couldn't really get into any of the characters other than the first part when you meet Rae.

While it wasn't for me I can see why it would appeal to others.

I got to the point with Vampire novels where I would groan out loud every time I saw another one being promoted. Most of them could be the same story rewritten under another title they are that predictable, so I am pleased to say Darkly Dreaming has reignited my passion for this genre. A clever and original plot carries the story with lots of romantic tension and heat to keep the pages turning. For anyone looking for something refreshingly original in this genre I would certainly recommend.

Once I started to read the book I could not find enough hours spare to continue reading. Chloe has written a damn good book with great characters which can go in many different directions. Cant wait for book 2.

Format: Paperback
This is an exciting new twist on the usual vampire novel. The closest I can describe it to is True Blood meets Underworld, dark and seductive but still with a good dose of 'humanity'.
It asks the reader, what happens when your desire for escapism is forced into a dark world from which there is no escape? Is eternal life worth giving up the ability to dream?
The well rounded characters pull the story quickly along, on a path that explores the intricacies and loyalties of friendships and lovers. The lead character Rea is a plausible clash of dreamy directionless and level headed action. Her best friend Layla, is a lovable mix of bubbliness and fierce loyalty. Together they embark on the adventure of several life times, in this eloquent and distinctive fantasy.

Darkly Dreaming is Chloe Hammond's debut novel, however her writing didn't feel novice at all. As a fan of Vampire novels, I was pleasantly surprised to find one that dealt with the theme from a different angle. She made her characters feel very human with real problems to deal and overcome. I believe that this book is addressed to a more mature audience in the sense that the characters are older and mature themselves. The relationships formed among the characters are developed naturally and the romance is in equal proportion with the suspense needed for such a genre.
I am looking forward to reading what will happen next between Rae and Guillaume.
This is a very good start for this new writer and I highly recommend it.
