Hey my sweet readers! I've been MIA for the past few days but I am back! I'm back with a new blog tour. I'm featuring Legacy:The Niteclif Evolutions by Denise Tompkins. And now let's see what's this book is all about.
Legacy: The Niteclif Evolutions, Book 1 by Denise Tompkins
Looking back on the wish she made on Midsummer’s Eve, Maddy Niteclif should have been more specific. She only wanted to escape the shadowy nightmares that plagued her nights, not to be thrust into a completely altered reality.
If a strangely familiar, sexy dragon-shifter named Bahlin, who causes a never-to-be-mentioned-again fainting spell, isn’t enough to make her question her sanity, his insistence she’s the Niteclif ought to do the job. Prophesied super-sleuth of the supernatural world—a world that desperately needs her help—isn’t a job she’s remotely qualified for no matter what her family tree says.
Catapulted into a very different London ruled by dark mythology, mystery and murder, Maddy makes a few startling discoveries. Paranormal creatures exist. Getting shot really sucks. And her body responds remarkably well to dragon magic—in more ways than simple wound healing.
But in this kill-or-be-killed world, reality bites. And Maddy must choose to go back to what she knows…or stay and fight for the man she knows she can’t live without.
Warning: This book contains a shape-shifting dragon with a Scottish accent, modern and archaic weapons, global inter-species politics that make democracy seem mild, some very steamy sex underground, a severed head, murder, and…oh yeah…a woman caught in the middle of it all.
Time becomes irrelevant to the immortal.
But to one human woman, every second counts.
This is going to be a short review. I would like to keep this review short and direct to the point. I'm not going to discuss more about the plot just to keep all of you in suspense which I think is good.
All I will say is, I like the book. It's a good read. The characters are interesting. They are lovely to read and their complexity is so charming.
Maddy, the heroine of the story is nice but other times, she just frustrate me so much! Sometimes, her decisions annoys me but I guess it is a part of her character growth in the book.
Bahlin... I love Bahlin! I loved him the first time I read him in the book. He's the reason why I love this book... need I say more? The instant chemistry between Maddy and Bahlin is great! I loved reading their conversations and banters. It made me laugh out loud!
Although, I liked reading this book, there's just a tiny, little, small part it of I didn't enjoy, there's too much info that at times it gets confusing. I understand that those info are needed because the book is a Paranormal romance and some information needed to be explained but I just thought the author could impart those info in a way that the simple readers could understand without making it drag.
To sum it all up, I enjoyed reading this book despite that tiny glitch. The author's witty way of writing this book is awesome and uber entertaining! I am eagerly awaiting the next book in this series! Ms. Denise Tompkins is definitely an author to watch out for.
More about the Author:
Denise Tompkins lives in the heart of the South where the neighbors still know your name, all food forms are considered fry-able and bugs die only to be reincarnated in aggressive, blood-craving triplicate. Thrilled to finally live somewhere that can boast 3 ½ seasons (winter’s only noticeable because the trees are naked), her favorite season is definitely fall. It’s the time of year when the gardens are just about to pass into winter’s brief silence, and the leaves are out to prove that nature is the most brilliant artist of all.
Clearly, due to the enormous size of her picture, you can tell Denise isn’t as technologically savvy as she’d like to be. (Seriously. She’s not vain. She just couldn’t figure out how to shrink the picture any smaller.)
Denise is married to the love of her life. Both she and her husband are owned by two dogs and three opinionated parrots who keep her in stitches — literally and figuratively. One bird hates broccoli, one scared the pizza man to death upon delivery, and one bird loves to call out and invite stranger to “Come on in!” The birds thoroughly enjoy scolding the dogs. One dog, the mutt, has turned a deaf ear. The Bullmastiff, however, probably needs emotionally reconstructive therapy.
A life-long voracious reader, Denise has three favorite authors. Why three? Because favorite authors are like chips: a person can’t have just one. Her little house was so overrun with books last year that her darling husband bought her an e-reader out of self-preservation. He was (legitimately) afraid she might begin throwing out pots and pans to make room for more books, and he didn’t want to starve.
Along with reading, Denise loves travel, is obsessed with the British Isles, practices photography, enjoys cooking and looks forward to Christmas as an excuse to bake.
Her debut novel, Legacy, is the first book in The Niteclif Evolutions and will be available in both e-book and print from Samhain Publishing.
