    Provocatively Romantic and Completely Compelling!!

    I had never read this author before, but I have to say I was greatly impressed. The plot was both intriguing and engaging, the writing inspired, the imagery extremely vivid, and the characters complex and well thought out. These characters have a way of drawing you right into the story and making you believe in this extraordinary world the author has created for us. They make it impossible to not become invested in their lives, and rooting for them just becomes second nature. These characters found their way into my heart. Two emotionally and physically damaged men, who by all rights should be enemies, find themselves drawn to each other in ways neither of them fully understand. The question is can they let go of their shared past in order to forge a future together… and maybe heal one another a bit in the process? I have to tell you, I was hooked on this story from very early on and remained riveted to the very end. I can't wait to see what happens in the next book in this series, Taste The Dark. I would highly recommend this book to anyone looking for a provocatively romantic and completely compelling read. *I was given an ARC of this book and voluntarily chose to review. All opinions are my own.

    Enemies to lovers

    Surrender the Dark is well-written and the world building is very good. It seemed a bit long and wordy at times, but as I read further, the word choices felt appropriate to the characters. The dynamics between Benjamin and Tzadkiel were interesting, to say the least. If ever two people should be life-long enemies, it is these two. I wasn't sure in the beginning that I'd be convinced of their relationship but was pleasantly surprised by the end. Overall, the book did hold my interest and I would recommend it to anyone who reads this genre.

    Spectacular writing!

    Benjamin Fuller was always meant to be a vampire hunter, it’s literally in his DNA. He had never approved how the “vile creatures” were treated, but his outlook changed to some extent when he saw his family killed and lost his eyesight to a vampire, and his mission from that day on has been to kill that vampire. Tzadkiel Dragoumanos was that vampire, and after having recovered from his injuries, the ancient vampire vowed to find Benjamin. I love vampire stories, and SURRENDER THE DARK promised an unusual set-up, not to mention that Benjamin is gay, and I hadn’t read this type of paranormal romance before. Moreover, this is the ultimate enemies-to-lover trope, as their hatred is a very serious matter. What I was not expecting was to fall head over heels with the author’s prose. The first sentence of the prologue defined my impression of Ms. Armstrong. Benjamin has a gift, and Ms. Armstrong’s exquisite prose makes it very visual with her striking descriptions, and total mastery of the English language. Tibby Armstrong’s prose in breathtakingly gorgeous, her vocabulary is refined and precise, yet the dialogues are easy and natural. The mood is somewhat gothic, quite dark and mysterious, but this blackness is tinted with an infinite number of nuances. I had no idea how the author was going to make this romance come about, as Benjamin and Tzadekiel are mortal enemies, and even when they can’t deny their mutual physical attraction, they still want to kill each other. Benjamin is described as having a “dancer’s build”; for once, he wasn’t your stereotypical hero physically, that is with tree-trunk thighs and so on, and I am ever so grateful, and this is one of the innumerable details that make SURRENDER THE DARK so special. Unless you intensely dislike male/male romance and/or paranormal romance, I strongly recommend SURRENDER THE DARK for the exceptional quality of the writing. I voluntarily reviewed an advanced reader copy of this book.
