"A heart wrenching tale!"
Sam is the sheriff of a small town called Twilight. Emerald
is an Irish median with ties to the supernatural. She's
amazed that even after all he's seen and experienced that
he could be as disbelieving in the ancient battle of good
and evil as he is. When Sam is bitten by a vampire, their
struggle turns to a matter of life and death for all around
them. Emerald battles Sam every step of the way in the
hopes that her love will save him from the darkness that
threatens his soul.
I can't remember the last time a book touched me so much
that I had to stop reading because I could no longer see
through the tears. My heart hurt for the characters that
Jennifer St. Giles created. When I turned the last page, I
was frustrated that the tale ended before I was ready.
Emerald's capacity for love constantly amazed me. When all
the odds were stacked against her, she managed to find and
hold onto one glimmer of hope that would make everything
else all right. Sam just wanted to do what was right, even
at a great cost to himself.
Kiss of Darkness will be a book I will return to
again in the future. The fast paced, gripping storyline
carried me away and filled me with a wide spectrum of
emotions. The secondary characters become personal and you
cheer them on just as much as you do the lead characters.
The town of Twilight struggles as evil looms, and its
brought to the reader in a way that can be related to.
The third installment of the Shadowmen series is one to
remember. Jennifer St. Giles has created a wonderful work
of art that I'm pleased to have read.
