Dark Whispers

The MacCumail Bloodlines

Great Reading! This was a novel on the plus side but worth every page. It starts with the clan leader of a mighty vampire group being attacked and losing his memory. He stumbles upon vampire hunter and human Emily. As Mikael tries to remember his past and figure out who has set him up, he gradually falls in love with Emily and her sweet innocence. Emily never had any intentions of falling for the enemy but there is something about the stranger who can't recall his own name that draws her in. The author does a really good job of setting up the story and allowing pieces to fall into place. There was no info dump nor any rush to get to the good parts. Everything unfolded at a pace that made reading this a true pleasure.

As a paranormal vampire story I think readers will still enjoy Marie Kenward's fresh vampire tale. This one is highly recommend and I will probably re-read this one myself in the near future.

Book Blurb for Dark Whispers

Sometimes, trusting your inner voice can be fatal...

He is Mikael macCumail, leader of a vampire clan. The oldest of his kind, he is considered invincible. Deadly. Most fear him, and he's lived unchallenged for over a millennia. Until the night he loses it all.

Stripped of his memory, stalked by vampires and vampire hunters alike, Mikael finds an unlikely ally in young hunter Emily Davenport. On the run with no one to turn to and no one to trust, the line between predator and prey begins to blur. In a world of unfamiliar shadows, Emily becomes his only light. Her beauty tempts him, her innocence disarms him. Mikael has waited centuries to find a woman like Emily, but when his past catches up with him and he discovers why his memory was taken, he must prepare to face an enemy he doesn't know how to defeat. An enemy with no physical body, a life form--an entity--that lives inside vampire blood, moving from one body to the next, killing.

And now it wants Mikael.
