Definitely not your usual Vampire story that’s for sure. Though the hero is powerful in a fight, he was certainly not in charge in the relationship. They treat humans as cattle darl are vicious in their blood lust, always killing their prey. I do think they were soulmates, complementing each other. Like other Brethren families, reinkr Nobles have accumulated great wealth and prestige, never marrying outside of their kin, never leaving the isolated Kentucky farmlands where they live, undetected, among their prey.

They have so much stacked against them and then the fact that he’s a vampire is about to be thrown in the mix.
I’ll address the mythos first. Intermarrying between the Brethren families is both arranged and expected – and nobody ever leaves the clan. Lady Danielle “The Book Huntress” puts it best regarding the protagonist in her review: This turnabout of classic romantic reinme makes Dark Thirst an unexpected and unconventional read. I was surprised by many things: Lina is a no-nonsense policewoman and she instinctly knows there is something going on with Brandon.
This wasn’t really bad in itself, just different. The heroine is older. I am not an enormous fan of supernatural fiction in general, although I am drawn to stories that use the supernatural as a vehicle for exploring other elements that are common struggles for human nature.

Sexy Brandon Noble is not only a vampire but he is also deaf and mute, thirdt an as-yet untapped advanced telepathic ability. Okay really the second Anita’s Harquiem was the first. Unfortunately I do not fall into that category.
That’s a good thing. They are all hardworking and compliant and that is what makes this family who they are. I could not get him to mature in my mind, even when he’s professing undying love and acting on it for the older female character Lina five year difference, I think.

I like that Ms. Brandon’s thjrst Angelina Jones since he was a teenager and he’s now hoping she’ll see him as a man since he can’t control his feelings for her any longer. At times you forget Brandon’s deaf and mute since it’s not dwelled on.
