Some of you may have seen this review before, but I wanted to post it anyway! :)
Birthright is the first book in the series named, “The Dark Gifts” by Willow Cross. Upon finishing, I am eagerly awaiting, (not so patiently!) the next instalment!
This E-Book is not your typical, vampire romance book, where there is brooding, lust and danger. It is considerably more! I found myself having to turn the ‘pages’ every few seconds as I was just so engrossed in the story. It captivated me, had its hold on me so tightly, that I was forced into continue reading until the final page.
The characters are so complex and so intricately thought out with striking, individual personalities that consequently lead you to falling in love with them. For example, you see Cass, one of the most powerful of the Witches face tremendous difficulties. You witness a side to her that you ultimately would not expect, as she is a character who you expect to keep composure. The love observed between Liz and Michael is one of a kind, extraordinary, brimming with passion. They have an understanding that many would crave.
Willow has created a mystical world that you are catapulted into from the very first page. Infused into the book, has everything and anything any lover of the paranormal could ever want from a book. There are witches, vampires, ghosts, permeated with mythology and history. The story flows beautifully from the first page to the final concluding page, at the end leaving you feeling like you have lost a part of you. You feel as though you were part of the story, an observer, and it leaves you aching with neediness for the next book. There are countless twists and turns in the storyline that leave you gasping for more, forcing you to read on to find out what happens next!
The way that Willow describes and her spectacular way with the words she uses, leaves you craving for more. I would without a doubt give this book a 5/5 stars and I would recommend this book to everyone. It is a must to be read. You must read it!
Thank you Willow, for this amazing book!!!
