Raving review of The Fallen One!!

(Sons of the Dark Mother, Book One)

Lenore Wolfe

Due to be Published April 2015 by Triquetra Press Publications

An ancient race and a prophecy foretell of four dark princes, the sons of the dark mother, who will rise up with a nation of old vamps to stop the rogue factions from ruling over mankind. Justice is the first in that prophecy, from the ancient Jaguar People. He is the Prince of Fire. Jess is one of the three sisters of the Jaguar witches who must help him to stop these factions of rogue vamps--or none of their lives will ever be the same.

My rating: 4/5

Honestly, I didn't believe that I would love this book that much. A few months ago I won Dark Warrior: To Tame a Wild Hawk (Dark Cloth #1) and Doorway to the Triquetra (Children of Atlantis, Book One ) both written by Lenore Wolfe, but with my monster TBR pile and mega ''request review'' list, I wasn't able to read them... So when I start The Fallen one, I have noidea of the kind/style of writing, which paranormal creatures could be into this story, does Ms. Wolfe prefer male or female main character, what kind of action/plot I could read about, NOTHING!

I wasn't disappointed by this story, Oh no! If you're the kind of readers who love to be stuck it up into action non-stop, a mix of supernatural creatures with awesome powers, a background as good and well developed as Lord of the Ring (well, without the complexity of it!), you just find you're ''next to-be read'' book!

When I read the first few pages, we meet Justice, the male character and were not sure if he's a good guy or a bad guy. He's the typical, super handsome, muscular, too-good in combat/training and he just find he's totally awesome, beautiful, kick-ass mate Jes. Who doesn't want to do anything with him. Even if they are attracted to each other they soon realise they are fated mate. This part is of the story is not unusual to PNR. But the author is putting the emphasis on the ''war'' and the bad guy they will have to fight. When they meet each other: SPARKLES! Everything seems to start from this encounter and everything else is well integrated to give the reader what he want and need: a nice/good/interesting plot, a lot of action, well driven characters, important and stunning secrets are revealed... Wow, each chapter give you more information on this outstanding world created by this talented author: Lenore Wolfe. Such a great imagination/creativity, Ms. Wolfe knows how to please the readers with enough romance/action/suspense scenes! I don't know if it's just me and the fact that I'm so in love with vampires but all I can say is: I hope there will be a book about Dracon and Dana!!!!

This story is bigger than it appears! Jes and Justice have they little personal story and everything about the war, the legends and myths, discovery of family ties and secrets, the arrival of other factions of supernatural creature as vampires, shifters, witches, fae,... are embroidered around the main characters and everything seem to fit perfectly!

The only thing that bothers me a little was the fact that Jes and Justice didn't seems to have enough time together. Maybe I'm a freak of love/sex scenes, but it's cool to read about them. They spiced up everything :) But when we read this story, we all understand that the time/place wasn't the best at all!

I recommend this story for sure! You can easily buy it, The Fallen One due to be republished on Amazon kindle January 31, 2014 and if you don't have a Kindle, and it's always on Smashwords!

Go grab your copy this January!
