REVIEW by Lorna : Bitter Fruits (Eden’s Fall #1) by Sarah Daltry – RELEASED TODAY! (@SarahDaltry, @Mollykatie112)

For fans of dark urban fantasy comes a novel that questions why forbidden fruit is always the most tempting…

A vampire-themed masquerade party isn’t really her scene, but Nora is sick of frat parties and bars. When she meets Alec, the appeal suddenly becomes clear. It’s obvious that they’ve been struck by the same intense mutual attraction, but Alec keeps his distance. Intrigued despite herself, Nora pushes a little deeper — and discovers Alec’s unimaginable secret…

Nora is not afraid of following Alec into the darkness, but the choice is soon taken from her. Someone is hunting her — someone tied to the secret and desperate to see it play out. But when Nora finally meets her aggressor, she finds herself hopelessly drawn to him. She needs to make a choice between the two men, but can she save them both, knowing one is destined to die?

I found this book on Net Galley and thought it sounded like a good paranormal read involving vampires. I received it in exchange for a fair and honest review.


What I liked about this book:

It was paranormal and that’s one of my favorite genres to read.

I liked the character of Caleb and I thought he was well written by the author.

I liked that the author obviously knows how to write.


What I didn’t like about this book:

The premise of this book did not work for me. The use of the Bible as a paranormal setting, with some of the main characters from Genesis, just was a little much for me.

I disliked the main character of Nora. She spent most of the book going back and forth sexually between two brothers and she just came off as shallow and wishy- washy.

I received this book a month ago and it took me the entire month to read it because I kept putting it down and reading other books. It just didn’t keep my interest.

I dislike giving an author that has done all this work to write a book, a bad review. I know it takes a lot of time and work and it just doesn’t seem fair. I wouldn’t have reviewed this had I not received it in exchange for a review. My apologies to the author because it just wasn’t what I thought it would be.


Who would I recommend this book to:

I would have to say it’s definitely an adult read, and it left it wide open for a series, for those people that like paranormal series books. It wasn’t my idea of a good read but I am sure there are paranormal readers that will enjoy it.
