Setting the atmosphere from page one, Tara Moss delivers the first in her new paranormal series about Pandora English, The Blood Countess.
This is Devil Wears Prada meets Buffy the vampire slayer.
Leaving her small town of Gretchenville, Pandora is looking to start her career at Mia magazine. So when an offer arrives for her to come and stay with her mysterious great aunt Celia, she jumps on the next flight out to New York City.
But when Pandora starts seeing strange things& Â She has to wonder: is she going mad? And what is the mystery that surrounds her great aunt?
Pandora is an easily likeable character, and I found myself looking forward to following her around the big apple. There is a healthy dose of humour, fashion and glamour to make this a great night\’s read.
There are two potential romances; the gentlemanly ghost, Luke and the big city player, Jay. Personally I\’m more inclined to like Luke. He\’s sweet, chivalrous, and protective (plus â€“ he\’s a man in uniform). What\’s not to like?
Oh, and who could forget Celia, Pandora\’s great aunt. She has style and glamour down to an art. Nothing can ruffle this lady\’s composure. I do hope to see much more of her in the future.
Moss delivers an interesting new addition to the paranormal sector, with a delightful New York flair. There\’s glamour, romance, backstabbing and a whole bunch of rice counting Sanguine (Vamps).
The Blood Countess is a great start to an exciting new series. Looking forward to the next installment.
