Saturday Short: Dark Beauty

Goodreads Summary: For fifteen-year-old Seeker, Isabelle Crowe, ridding the Houston streets of the undead is an inherited duty, passed down from her Cherokee ancestors. During her first night without her mentor, she encounters Abram, a more experienced Seeker from Chicago looking to avenge his cousin's death. Isabelle quickly learns she must work with Abram to protect her city. With one Seeker already dead, Isabelle's love of the hunt becomes a fight to survive.
Dark Beauty was an interesting introduction to a new series. At only a little over fifty pages it comes across a bit rushed but it drops enough tantalizing details to seize your interest and make you want to pick up the following volume, the full-length first novel of the Seeker Series. The vampires come across as classic but now there is a new race that has arisen from their King, and there is nothing dreamy about him. [Can you guys tell I'm a little tired of vampires in the paranormal romance genre? xD] The characters, what I got to see of them, seem interesting and I think the series is going to pack in a lot of fascinating least I'm hoping we get more from the Cherokee ancestors! All in all its a solid introduction and, I think, worth the read.


  1. I like the Cherokee twist. This sounds like an interesting read. Adding it to my list! Thanks for the review.

    1. It was a good one. And the first novel in the series was great! Hope you enjoy!
