"A dark, passionate story that enthralled me from the first page!"
Nikoloas, an Aresian vampire, is a respected general in the
Spartan army. He has fought battles for over two hundred
years and loves his country, but he is tiring of fighting
and feels like something is missing. When he meets Kalla,
he thinks that she may be that missing link.
Kalla is pretending to be a Spartan oracle. She is a
Messenian and a Helot-a Spartan slave. When a Spartan,
Praxiteles, learns that she has the true sight, he knows
that he must have her to use in his plan to overthrow one of
the Spartan Kings. Kalla has no choice but to be a pawn in
Praxiteles' plan, because if she doesn't, he will kill her
Nikoloas does not trust Kalla, but he cannot resist her.
When she tells him of a vision, he begins to trust her and
gives in to his attraction for her.
They both fight the same enemy, one for his way of life, one
for her family. When Nikoloas finds out of Kalla's part in
the traitorous plan, can he ever trust her again? Can Kalla
keep her family alive and have the man that now owns her heart?
Wicked Omen took me on a passionate story through Sparta,
thousands of years ago. Ms. Quinn brings the Sparta legends
and battles to life with brilliant descriptions and fast
paced action. Kalla is a strong and admirable woman who has
known many hardships. She is now faced with the possible
loss of her family and the fact that she has fallen in love
with the enemy. Nikoloas is a dark, warrior vampire, with
an unbelievably tender side that touched me to the core. I
was deeply touched by each of these people and was hoping
that all would turn out good for them. I will be looking
for more from Sherrill Quinn and looking forward to reading
more of her vampire romance!
