Book Review: When Forever Died by Mia Darien
Author: Mia Darien
Pages: Approx 150
Forever is a long time.
The life of a hunter is a lonely one. Perhaps more for Dakota than others in her line of work. Not only is she better than anyone else at chasing down the things that go bump in the night, but her past chases her with the same tenacity.
She's built walls around her solitary existence and that's the way she likes it, but the past never sleeps. When she's hired to hunt an ex-lover for murder, it's just the first in a string of memories that will bring Dakota's past, present and future into a collision course.
And when she agrees to take on a second case and hunt down an Ancient, a vampire over one thousand years old, it unleashes circumstances onto that collision that will shake the foundation of everything she's built and force her, for the first time in a long while, to look to others.
Can she survive it, like she's survived these past four centuries? Or will the weight of it all finally crush her?
Review: When Forever Died by Mia Darien didn't capture my interest as most books do. The plot ran smoothly but the sentence structure made it hard to keep up with. This book is part of the Adelheid Series which I have yet to actually read. Perhaps if reading the other books would put more light on this one, I suggest reading them at first.
Personally I found it a little hard to be pulled into this book because of the lack of editing the book went through. I give this book *** (3 Stars). The plot would be interesting if the format and editing was looked at and corrected. Other than the grammar and sentence structure, I think it would be a really good read.
