In the spirit of the soon-to-be released novella #3 FANGED KINDRED in the Fanged Novella Series, I am featuring Elisabeth Wheatley’s FANGED (#1) book! Below is the new cover and I am absolutely in LOVE with it!
My review on Fanged:
I love how this enticing novella jumps right into the story with no hesitation. Personally, I prefer books like this, with beginnings that hook you so well and drag you in, willing or not. For me, if an author spends too much time “setting the story” with boring parts and dialogue and monologue and description and blah, blah, blah–I’m already disengaged from the story, and I put it down. This definitely was not the case with Fanged. I read the whole thing in one sitting.
Elisabeth Wheatley did a fabulous job with character development as well as style and theme. The main character, Hadassah “Haddie” Chadwick, is a rebellious nineteen-year-old vampire who loves her baby brother, Damian, more than she loves anyone else. When her brother makes the same mistake as Hadassah had a year prior by falling in love with a human, Hadassah swears to Damian that she’ll help protect the human girl, Madelyn, from the Vampire King–their father.
I honestly enjoy Haddie’s personality, and I think it’s perhaps because I can resemble part of her. But, I have to say, not to that extreme. So, maybe I’m only a little like her. Maybe.
Enemies became friends, and family became the enemy–absolutely fascinating, and told in such a smooth, flawless style! The language this book is written in is so beautiful and precise. Well written, awesome characters, and a fresh look at love.
At one part in the story, I literally shed two tears. Yes, I did count, because I hardly ever cry. Wheatley is absolutely great at capturing emotions in her stories, and her descriptions are spot on. I can’t wait until the second installment of Fanged comes out!
I had the honor of proofreading FANGED KINDRED for Elisabeth. And UGH IT WAS SO GREAT. I was so into the story and the characters and UGH IT WAS SO GREAT. (Official review to come later!)
So now we just wait for FANGED KINDRED to grace us with its presence. 😉
