Book Review, first impressions, Karolina Dalca Dark Eyes by M. R. Noble.

Hi all! Today is my stop on the Blog Tour for Karolina Dalca, Dark Eyes by M.R. Noble. This is first impressions review but before I get into it I would like to thank Dave @thewriterreads and @M_R_Noble for proving me with the a copy of the book for the review!

So here is the blurb for the book:

Blindsided by an attack that destroys her home and blamed for murder, Karolina Dalca, a half-vampire, escapes, only to plunge into the magical societies from which she was sheltered.

Betrayed by those around her, she abandons her dreams of becoming an investigator and flees, trusting only herself. Her police internship would never prove more useful. Hoofing it through the wilderness, she makes it to her university dorm, disheveled but delightfully deflowered.

Enter a full vampire: one wielding dark magic and a ride out of Canada. A fugitive from the law, Karo complies with his demands to escape, unsure whether his requests are bewitched. She vows to clear her name and avenge her mother’s death, but Karo’s family secrets aren’t so easily left behind.

I have read the first few chapters of the book and let me tell you, it really pulls you in! If you are a fan of the supernatural, vampires, werewolves, magic spells then you are in for a wild ride. I, personally, cannot wait to finish it.

There is a lot of violence though so it is not for the fainthearted and I would not suggest it for people that do not particularly enjoy bloody scenes.

My only issue with the book so far was the fact that some of the action scenes were a bit confusing so I had to go back and re-read them sometimes.

Other than that I found the take of having both vampires and werewolves along with all the magic very thrilling! I am really enjoying the book so far and I cannot wait to finish it.

Now a little bit about the author:

M. R. Noble has played a tug of war between science and art her whole life, but the rope broke when she wrote the first line of The Dark Eyes Series. Immersed up to her keyboard in paranormal romance and urban fantasy, she enjoys blending the real with the surreal. The only drawback is she misplaces her mug while dreaming up her next scene, and soon finds herself six cups overpoured.

Keeping to her Lake Simcoe roots, she is a member of the Writers Community of York Region (WCYR), where her muse is made not found . . . over a hefty cup of coffee.

That is all from me for now.

Thank you for reading and keep safe!

Till next time.
