    Magnificent

    Kade Cook has what I like to call a beautiful mind. Where does she come up with all this stuff: A story out of thin air that feels real, true, and authentic? And the characters … well-developed characters, main and secondary that live, breath, and rise from the pages. I’ve never been a fan of vampires or the stories they populate, but I’ll forever be a fan of Kade Cook if she can continue to cook up tales like Grey. She wields a flawless, third-person, omniscient narrator that feels surprisingly close to all the characters. Cook takes us straightway into the action with a purposeful prologue that sets the tone for things to come. And come they do. It’s a supernatural smorgasbord. We are introduced to our protagonist, accomplished professional, Dr. Gabrian Shadwell. We are unknowingly drawn into her volatile world, and her gradual growth and transformation by the novel’s end are both significant and profound. Cook doesn’t bore us with brooding backstory and tedious exposition but places this necessary information strategically throughout the narrative, wrapped in elegant prose, vivid descriptions and authentic, engaging dialogue. It’s somewhat cinematic in its approach and would make a great film. Cook also does a good job of keeping the tension up chapter after chapter, and the reader in suspense as to the outcome of our story and its dynamic heroine's fate. Sample some of Cook’s exquisite words. “A foreboding sense of fear sweeps over her [Gabrian], sending a shiver down her spine and wiping her face clean of expression except for the dew forming in the edges of her eyes—sadly revealing to her an understanding that she has somehow managed to lose all control of her life.” These last words are telling to the story’s direction, but you have to read it to get more. Ha! I’m not a fan of instalove at first sight, but Cook has found the right combination of words to make the concept more than believable. I was swept away when Shane and Gabrian first crossed paths, drawn into their blaze. But it’s Cook’s words that kept me there, unwilling to blink. Witness a bit of the magic. “He stands above her, smelling an arousing scent of cinnamon in her hair. He looks down at her and feels his pulse begin to race just from being close to her. She is unlike any girl he has ever met before—she ignites him. She pulls his attention to its knees, making him want to take in everything she does—cling to every word she says. He wants to kiss her so badly it hurts. He can feel his need for her painfully twist in his chest.” And “He thought she was beautiful before but now he is convinced she has to be a descendant of the goddess Aphrodite herself, sent here to wreak havoc on his senses. Everything about her makes him weak, and he knows he is now and forever more irrevocably lost in her.” One more. “He [Shane] observes her transform from the shy wallflower he had met at the coffee shop only hours ago into the wind.” Adrinn as villain is terrifying, intriguing, and formidable. The scene where he takes Gabrian to a bar to wield his dark magik is intoxicating (no pun). I read the chapter twice. Cook keeps the story grounded in the here and now with perfectly placed references to current pop culture. All in all, the Realm is an exciting and provocative place to be, and I’m looking forward to a return trip there. 5 stars plus for Kade Cook’s debut effort, Grey: The Covenant of Shadows.
