Sunkissed - Review

Welcome to the final review of the year.
I know that half the world is about to welcome 2014 but here we have a few more hours to celebrate.
I decided to say goodbye to this year with a review for a book about my favorite topic: VAMPIRES.

BTW, I wish you all a HAPPY NEW YEAR. I hope 2014 brings lots of love, fun, good moments and millions of BOOKS :)

My thanks to the author who send me a copy of her book.

by Carys Jones
 SunkissedDawn Summers is dying. It’s 1853 and as the seventeen year old continues to fade away she has visions of the father she never knew, urging her to fight for her life.

In the small village of Fandova the only medical care is in the form of the mysterious Dr. Moralus who has a known penchant for bloodletting. Thomas, Dawn's fiancĂ©, is warned against inviting his intervention, but feels he has no choice, he pleads with the doctor to save Dawn’s life…whatever it takes.

Whatever it ‘takes’ has some consequences neither of them expected. Now, it’s a hunt to the death, with both Dawn and Thomas determined to win.




My rating: 4 of 5 stars

What if the person you love would be dying? How far would you go to save your loved one? These are the types of questions Thomas has to face when his fiancĂ©e is suffering and in the verge of death. A mysterious and dark doctor seems the only hope to save her and he runs to his aids against Dawn’s mother warnings. A single choice will change the lives of Thom and Dawn forever.

As you can imagine for the cover and the blurb this book is about the blood-suckers some of us love. Carys presents us with some classic vampires (the ones who can’t go out in the sunlight) which is amazing and refreshing. Not only they share the same characteristics from old vampires they also have the same devilish personalities.

Dawn's story is set in two different times and it’s nice to see how their lives evolve and change from 1863 to modern day. Both moments are well portrayed and the New York scenario was a great choice. With a changing point of view that allows us see from different perspectives and create a more solid world, we get to know the motivations and desires of the two main characters.

As far as the rhythm, the book is a bit slow for moments and the action takes time to arrive, however, you get to the end before you even notice because is not a long book.

This is a story about losing your humanity and the fight between turning yourself into a monster and trying to stay as human as possible.

Overall, the story has great potential to be a series because there are many loose ties at the end and unanswered questions that could lead to a sequel. Dawn is a strong character, she is the reason why the story continues being interesting and entertaining even during its slow moments.

If you love vampires, you should give this book a chance.
