    An enchanting debut!

    Passion Awakened was an enchanting debut in the Beyond The Mist series by Valerie Twombly. A King cursed and unable to return home. A woman who doesn’t believe in her gypsy heritage. Once I started, I couldn’t stop. The story is quick and the mating is insta. Andrei and Sonia were a great couple. The curse he is under is to fold and what must be done to break the curse is, heartbreaking and hopeful. I enjoyed the few surprise that we are treated to throughout the story. The secondary characters where a delight. I liked Karenina. She is the witch that helps bring Andrei and Sonia together. Her story is a bit sad and who knows maybe she will find her special someone. We are also introduced to a few other men from the mist and get to see this other world. I will say a few things felt repetitive. For one we have he witch telling Andrei a story, Andrei in turn tells Roman his friend the story, then the witch tells Sonia the same story who shares it with her grandmother. You get the picture. Even though we get a little repetitive I still enjoyed jumping into the Beyond The Mist series. Passion Awakened treats us to a curse, heartbreak, and hope. If you enjoy Vampires and stories that take you on an emotional journey then this book is possibility for you. I had a wonderful time and look forward to the next installment. Rated: 3.5 Stars *Disclaimer: I received a complimentary copy provided by Author Valerie Twombly with the sole purpose of an honest review. All thoughts, comments and ratings are my own.

    I really enjoyed this story. I found Andrei to be an honorable vampire, spending so many years trying to find a way to break his curse. Andrei's situation leaves the reader feeling his heartbreak. The additional cast of characters really rounded out the story. I loved Nana and Korinna's additons to the tale. Once I started reading, it was hard to walk away. Fans of classic vampire tales will appreciate the blend of the old-style tale mixed with twists added to the story to make it unique. I reviewed a copy provided by the author; the opinions are my own.
