Book One of an Adult Paranormal Fantasy Romance Series
Knowledge changes everything…
Hoodoo-influenced Southern Louisiana seems like the perfect place for Camille to escape her abusive past and dysfunctional family. She doesn’t expect to fall in love with the handsome Gavin Devereaux and plummet into the world of Amaranth, a place of exile for reformed vampires.
Wrestling to escape a deadly ex-boyfriend while giving Gavin a chance, Camille is confronted with decisions that threaten not only her life, but the lives of her inhuman friends she has come to love. Entangled in her friends’ quest for freedom, she dives into their realm and faces the threats of Amaranth’s ruler—the mother of all vampires—and her own inner demons.
Now Camille must decide whether she will derail her life and make the ultimate sacrifice for the monsters that interrupted her bumpy path back to sanity—what she still wants so desperately—or escape with Gavin before it’s too late for both of them.
(synopsis taken from Goodreads)
This book was simply amazing. One of my favorites I have read this year. Not only was it a great vampire novel, but it also showed that women can overcome domestic violence. I loved how Camille was strong enough to back out of not only one abusive relationship, but two. Camille was without a doubt my favorite character. She was a bad ass in the way she always stood up for herself and never showed any fear, even when facing Samira, the evil ruler of Amaranth. I wish that the author would have given the reader more of a back story on Audrey and Gabe, but that might happen in the next book. The story left off on a cliffhanger. It made me very excited to learn what happens next. I can't wait for book two, The Gates to be released.
I give Amaranth: 5/5.
