There’s no wrath like that of a witch scorned.
Seventeen-year-old spirit witch Ava López is the self-appointed guardian of the witches and humans of Darkhaven, an idyllic village nestled between the forest and the sea. Her watch: vicious and bloodthirsty vampires.
Ava is a novice in the eyes of her coven. If she expects to protect them and the secrecy of their powers, she must gain better control of her own. When a full moon ritual goes awry, control may be lost forever, and Ava is exiled from her coven. Forced to seek refuge among the beings she had always sworn herself to hunt, she vows revenge on those who have upended her life.
But the more time Ava spends away from her coven, the more she discovers a startling truth: the witches haven’t been honest with her. Ava’s quest to strip the truth from everything she’s ever known begins with the toughest realization of all—coming to terms with who she has become.
( I received a complimentary copy of Dark Secret by Danielle Rose for reviewing purposes. All opinions are my own.)
“This quick and easy read was interesting and kept my attention.
The storyline is well thought out, well written and cracks along at a good pace.
You get a detailed insight into what it’s like for Avah, a witch who has been brought up to hate all vampires, to become a vampire.
The characters are well-developed and brought to life. Avah especially is an interesting and complex character
I’d like to see what happens next.”
The review above is one I left for Blood Rose by Danielle Rose. The same review applies to this book as it seems to be a rewrite of the same story.
There are some differences to the story, and some of the names have changed, Avah Taylor is now Ava López, while others remain the same.
I read and enjoyed the Blood Books trilogy of which, Blood Rose was the first book. Dark Secret is Book 1 of the Darkhaven Saga, whether or not the following books in the saga continue the same story is something I won’t be discovering for myself.
