Dark Companion Reviews
This read intrigued me from start to finish to the extent I couldn’t help but devour it in one sitting. I found the whole Vampire Architects/Protector concept interesting to learn about and follow, and the twist at the end of how Isla was able to reconnect with Warwick at the end even after the erasure and find her way back to him was a great touch.I like how the author gave the female lead, Isla, an empowering role. She was the one seeking out her own pleasure, taking charge and going after what she wanted, when it is usually the male going after the female for his pleasures. It was refreshing to read. I am hoping this series continues so we get to see the other vampires find their partners. I am particularly interested to see who Dorian will end up with and the circumstances they will find themselves, it’s going to take a strong woman to tame that hot-head. I give this read four and a half stars.*Submitted for review by author*
Maya DeLeina has been a favorite of mine since I read her Ambrose Heights Vampire series. Her recent release, Dark Companion, the first in the Vampire Architects Series, has simply escalated her must read status on my list of authors. The Vampire Architects are an elite group of vampires who have special abilities and are tasked with helping to save certain chosen souls from becoming the eternal property of those in the underworld. The leader, Dorian has the ability to sense which Architects will be used for each case, and also chooses which souls will be saved from their prophesied underworld destiny. For each case there is a Prophecy Keeper, a Tracker, and a Protector that will watch and learn everything about the person they are assigned to throughout their life, from birth to death.For reasons unknown, Dorian has chosen to intervene in Isla’s destiny, to save her from becoming an eternal concubine to Cassian in the underworld. Joey is to be her Tracker, Ryker will be her Prophecy Keeper, and Warwick is given the important task of being her Protector. For 40 years the vampires have watched Isla and her prophecy until at last it’s time to intervene. Isla is about to be thrown into a world that she only thought existed in folklore and despite the rules set in place to protect the Prophecy, she and Warwick fall hard for each other. Warwick knows he’s made a mistake by letting an emotional connection come in to play and if he doesn’t erase all memory of himself from Isla, the prophecy will fail and they won’t be able to save her. Isla proves to be a special case and the Architects find themselves in unfamiliar territory.Warwick is about as perfect as they come. He’s handsome, caring, and the things the man can do with an air mattress,…..have mercy! Isla, despite having her world turned upside down, remains a strong character, yet shows vulnerability which makes her a very realistic character that is easy to relate to. Dorian is a character I wanted to throw something at. He’s more the stereotypical vampire with his giant sense of superiority that makes him quite the asshole for lack of a better word. I have a feeling though, that there is something more to him that just hasn’t been uncovered yet. Joey and Ryker are equally intriguing and I hope to see them in their own books later in the series.Maya DeLeina has a way with vampires that keeps her books fresh and exciting. With characters that are mysterious and sexy, yet humorous and real. The vampires in this series not only have unique abilities, but also have tools that they use that are technologically advanced which is not something you generally see paired with vampires. I can’t even begin to get into the sex in this book. It heats up very quickly and just doesn’t stop. Warwick and Isla both burn up the pages and all I can say is, where can I get some red scarves that can do THAT! (yeah, you’ll have to read the book to find out what “THAT” is.) I gave Dark Companion 5 stars easily as I was enthralled from the beginning and flew through the pages just dying to know what would happen next. There was a large cliffhanger at the end and I cannot wait for Maya DeLeina to get the next book out so I can find out what they are going to do about Isla. Okay, I really can’t wait to get more of Warwick, but he’s just the icing on the cake of this great new series!
I loved this story about Warwick an Elite member of the Vampire Architects and Isla Joseph. Warwick is chosen as Isla's Protector at the moment of birth to keep the Dark Side from getting her for eternity upon her death.The struggle Warwick faces to not fall in love with his charge over the next four decades is almost more than he can handle. Isla has an instant attraction when she meets him, but you NEED to read this book to see how Warwick sets up this "chance" meeting and all the things that transpire as they try to stay together for all eternity.This is a fantastic book and one I didn't want to see end.
Great Story and Great Characters!Isla and Warwick are amazing characters, and very easy to fall in love with and leave you wanting to read more about them. I love the way that she brings the characters to life in her writing. It is almost as if you can see the movie playing in your head as you read the story. The more I read, the more I did not want the book to end. I wanted to know more, I wanted to read more. This book was absolutely amazing and I highly recommend it!!The more books I read by Maya DeLeina the more I love them and the more I want to tell everyone to go out and buy them now!
I enjoyed the book very much except for the abrupt ending.
