Pay it Forward Friday with a Review of Legacy of Ghosts (#2 in Amaranthine Series) by Author Joleene Naylor

Legacy of Ghosts

Book 2

Amaranthine Series

by Author Joleene Naylor

81gQFslRa4L._SL1500_After reading the first novel of the Amaranthine Series, Shades of Gray, I started on novel two.

Again, the strange couple of Jorick and Katelina are in the middle of the fray with warring factions of Vampire covens.

Jorick has to save the life of Katelina after she was viciously attacked and seals their fate together in a very personal way.

An evil Vampiress and her coven come after Jorick, and he knows nothing will be settled until he can be rid of her vengeance.

However, because of bickering and untruthful followers, Katelina and Jorick have their job cut out for them.

How they will accomplish their freedom?

My thoughts

I immediately picked up book two, Legacy of Ghosts, right after I read the first novel, Shades of Gray.

I seem to have a fascination in learning more about Jorick and Katelina and why these two are together. However, the novel is so fast paced that I didn’t get much information on that subject.

Action, terror, and mystery are always around in Legacy of Ghosts. Ms Naylor writes in great detail.

Legacy_of_Ghosts__Kateesha_by_pandora_6666The evil Vampiress, Kateesha, is one vicious predator!

Many other interesting and truly terrifying characters are introduced in this book along with others from her first novel. Some, I found truly disconcerting but fascinating.

Katelina finds out some of Jorick’s deepest secrets and regrets. I want her to mature and grow wise in her role with Jorick.

However, Jorick’s motivations aren’t always clear, and Katelina sure doesn’t know how to handle that but to be suspicious.

Even at the end, I wanted to scream at Jorick and Katelina, “What’s going on? What’s your agenda?”

Ms. Naylor sure does know how to motivate a person to keep reading!

I highly recommend, Amaranthine Series by Author Joleene Nayor.

For all of this, I have to give this book a hearty 5 stars.

Definitely an 18+ read.

Review of Shades of Gray, Amaranthine Series Book One by Joleene Naylor…

Shades of Gra

Amaranthine Series

Book One

by Author Joleene Naylor

Katelina was a normal young woman who was in a on again off again relationship with Patrick. She comes home one day to find Patrick brutally murdered.

Unbeknownst to her, Patrick was in a world of vampires with ancient laws, cruelty and unspeakable terrors.

Katelina is suddenly drawn into the grips of danger when she is offered protection from Jorick. He wants to protect her. They travel to escape the danger from a powerful coven master who is wanting revenge for kidnapping his child bride.

However, forces in Jorick’s own circle turn against him, and he has to fight to free Katelina from the monsters that has encased her.

My thoughts about Shades of Gray

0When I started to read this book on my Kindle, I sort of had a preview into Ms. Naylor’s Amaranthine Series from reading her book of short stories about the characters called, Amarnthine: Vampire Morsels.

That really didn’t prepare me for the roller-coaster that was awaiting me. There were parts of the book that had me riveted. I can’t even tell you how descriptive Ms. Naylor writes. It is fluent and elaborate. Nothing is over-looked. I sometimes felt uneasy reading how debased some of the vampires were.

jorickMy favorite part was reading about the sulking and hunky, Jorick. Different from most heros, Jorick has tons of skeletons in his closet… literally.

Katelina is suspicious and rightly so, but she is strangely enthralled by Jorick.

I didn’t understand why she was so willing to go with Jorick. I didn’t understand why Jorick is so protective of Katelina. Nevertheless, I’m reading on to the second book in the Amaranthine Series called Legacy of Ghosts. The more I read, the more I am enlightened. I intend to read the whole series.

I recommend Shades of Gray by Author Joleene Naylor. It is a MUST READ for any “Vampite” like myself.

Shades of Gray is a FIVE STAR read!

By the way, definitely an 18+ read.
