I would like to thank NetGalley for letting me have a copy to read this one. It's different from what I have been reading lately. No shifters, or crazy vampires, angels.... however, there's magic, and I do love this. It's set in the back-in-the-days, and I mean, there are buggies and horses but no modern things like TVs and iPhones, etc. Rich have indoor plumbing, no phones, and you are getting it. Normally, I am a little hesitant to read a historical-type book, cuz I am too much of a big mouth to big complacent and I have big opinions so I get really mad at how things were back then... THIS IS A GREAT BOOK. It's got some of those old-worldly issues, women do not have rights, but it's got a great adventure, a totally world shattering tragedy, and a total plot twist :) Let me tell you... some things, are just good, and this is one of those. The characters are well defined, I really like Jaines. She is proper, in the fact that she knows her place, but watch it, she can shoot like you just don't know :) I had high hopes for my feelings for Lance, but ya know, some things change. And I really, really like Obsidian...you'll find out his real name later... The story is told from Jaines, but you see a glimpse of things and I like the way this feels. All in all, 4 big PAWS from me... too bad it's a stand alone, I would buy book two :)Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

A well crafted fantasy that leaves you wanting more.
Dark Vow is a fantasy story, a short tale of a widow whose choices brought about the death of her husband. After in inappropriate proposition by the town's lawman, she burns her home and flees, vowing revenge against the bounty hunter who killed her husband.Was this review helpful?

On the way, she meets Obsidian, a mysterious man who is the very thing she is fighting against. But the two of them create a tenuous alliance, agreeing to help one another get what they want.
A romance develops between them, and while they are intimate it isn't relayed as a motion-by-motion account - it doesn't overtake the story.
A well crafted story-world I hope this author will utilize for more and longer novels (this was a short story).
I only gave it 4 because it was a short story, not a full length novel.
