Book Review: The Dark Heroine By Abigail Gibbs

Name: The Dark HeroineAuthor: Abigail Gibbs
Publisher: Harper Collins
UK Release Date: 13th September

Summary: One moment can change your life forever…
For Violet Lee, a chance encounter on a darkened street draws her into a world beyond her wildest imaginings, a timeless place of vast elegance and immeasurable wealth – of beautiful mansions and lavish parties – where a decadent group of friends live for pleasure alone. A place from which there is no escape… no matter how hard Violet tries.
Yet all the riches in the world can’t mask the darkness that lies beneath the gilded surface, embodied in the charismatic but dangerous Kaspar Varn.
Violet and Kaspar surrender to a passion that transcends their separate worlds – but it’s a passion that comes at a price

 
Review: So I was asked if I would review this novel after reading the summary and I jumped at the chance. It sounded exciting. Something fresh for the vampire world of books. London based and one of the most exciting and hard hitting beginnings of a book ever I was sucked in (pun intended)
London, vampires everywhere, hot bites, hot scenes, very original plot and on the edge of combustion moments.
I had heard nothing about this story or how it came to be. It has had over 16 million views on wattpad and the author is only 17!!

This Book was deliciously good from the first page! The action started and kept me reading. I love my city (London) so when a book is set here especially a paranormal one I always get excited to read it and boy I was!
 
A girl witnessing something that will change her life forever. Meeting the sexiest of vampires in a London landmark and then falling into their seductive trap especially from Kaspar.
The addictive male lead of the story. His one liners and evil sexy self was more than I could handle. He's domineering character made this book what it is! One hell of a addictive story!
We have Violet Lee the confident "Heroine" of the story who's such a joy to read. She isn't annoying, she isn't reparative she's exciting and addictive as well.

I love that we have all different ages of characters! We even have children  vampires! I thought that was clever!
I absolutely loved the sexual tension between Violet and Kaspar their relationship kept me turn the page.
The Dark Heroine is an epic Sexy vampire story set in London with afflicting characters and nonstop action (literally) I cannot wait for this book to be published because it will be HUGE! Bigger than it already is! :)
