RHA Presents Angels of the Night: Discovery by Paula Kennedy

Allison Webber is tired of looking over her shoulder. Stalked by shadows her entire life, she embraces the invitation to join a secret society hiding the existence of vampires. Things heat up quickly in this all male cult when she catches the eyes of two sexy vampire twins, Thane and Darcy Wallace. Amid steamy encounters with the identical twins competing for her attention, Allison learns her mission is to aid a select group of vampires, the Angels of the Night, as they hunt and destroy the females of their species. Completely taken with the brothers and her new role, she fails to see that one of the twins has been using her. Allison must delve deep within herself for the courage to save the brother she loves and destroy the one who betrayed her.

My Review

Angels of the Night: Discovery
Paula Kennedy

Bravo, bravo, bravo! It is going to be hard for me to put into words what I think about this book! As soon as I was finished reading it, I emailed Paula right away asking if she had book two done, praying that she did. She said no, but it's in the works. I felt deflated but there was nothing I could do about it.

As most of you know, my favorite character is the Vampire, I am so in love with them! Each time a author sends me one to read, I open it without much expectation of what they did with the Vampire in their book. I like to be surprised. A lot of them are 'typical' of the beautiful creature but once in awhile I come across a few that totally put new twists on them. That is what Paula did, she put an absolutely beautiful, imaginative, spectacular twist on this sometimes misunderstood creature that I adore so much. And when I find an author who takes my creature and really works hard at not making it 'atypical', I am so pleasantly pleased and excited!

Angels of the Night kept me captivated from page one, and with each page thereafter.  I loved walking in Ally's shoes, feeling each emotion, each desire, each disappointment and so on. I have to say, out of all the books I have read on the Vampire, they have never been portrayed in this fashion and I found it refreshing.

I could tell you a bit about the book, but you can read that on the author's web home, and in other reviews. For me, by the time I got to the last chapter of the book, and I saw how it was going, I was so afraid and held my breath because I was praying that what I wanted to happen, happened BEFORE the last page appeared. When it clearly came apparent that it wasn't I actually was talking to myself and I couldn't get to the email fast enough to get a hold of Paula! She told me she would let me review book two, my heart was elated but I was also so disheartened because I felt I had to know where Ally was going next, and what she would have to do in order to follow her heart.

Paula Kennedy has shown wonderful imagination, creativity, and insight in Angels of the Night. I applaud her taking that extra step into making my creature of the night her own by using her own definition of how they should come across to the reader. It is very unique and it breathed life into what sometimes can come across as  a cliche when talking about the Vampire.

I highly recommend this book to all audiences, no matter the genre. I without hesitation give it five stars *****
