Defender’s Blood Alex’s Destiny
(Defender's Blood #1)
by A.K. Michaels
Genres: Paranormal/Urban Fantasy
Alex has no idea her life is about to change beyond her
wildest imaginings. She is the last in a long line of very
special females born for a dangerous task, and she isn't sure she is up to it. Zach, her vampire protector, is just as sure she is.
Demon attacks, angels and even the ultimate, divine intervention, shake Alex to her very core. Can she do this? Can Zach keep her safe? The alternative is unthinkable: demons once more ruling the earth.
Zach has to ensure that Alex puts a stop to this - and quickly!
PLEASE BE AWARE THERE ARE EXPLICIT SEX SCENES IN THIS BOOK - NOT SUITABLE FOR UNDER 18!
I found Alex to be relate-able, and I liked her as the protagonist. The chemistry between her and Zach is definitely visible! Though, I felt like some of the dialogue stalled in places. It seemed to deviate from how I perceived the characters. I think this stemmed from the information dump about the world and the past.
There is a definite hurdle at the beginning to get past to get into the story, and I felt that same slow drag creeping up during other parts of the story. It's mostly due to some repetitive parts. Though, A.K. definitely has talents as a writer. With more experience in polishing her stories, I have no doubt that A.K. will go far.
I will be tuning in for the other books in this series. There are an array (almost too many) supernatural creatures in this story, so fans of paranormal will find themselves intrigued by Defender's Blood Alex's Destiny.
**I received this book for free in exchange for an honest review. My thanks to A.K. Michaels and RBTL Book Tours.
A.K. Michaels was born in Scotland quite a number of years ago! She was married at a young age and is a mother to three much loved children. After the birth of her last child she went back to higher education and studied for a year before gaining employment in the banking industry. She worked in that role for a number of years before leaving, both the job and the country.
She lived abroad for a few years before returning to Scotland and finally taking up her dream - writing.
She is the author of the Defender's Blood series of books and two other series, The Witch, The Wolf and the Vampire and also Sabrina's Vampire, together with a Wolf Erotica Novella, Lori's Wolf. Her books fall into the Paranormal/Urban Fantasy genre and she loves writing those particular kinds of stories where she can let her imagination run wild!
She now spends her time reading - everything from Sci Fi to Crime, Erotica to Fantasy, Thrillers to Paranormal Romance. She loves spending time with her family and, of course, writing!
