Sam Crescent draws the reader into her paranormal world filled with vampires, werewolves, witches, and necromancers in the enthralling third installment of the Valentines series with Adam.
Vampire Adam Valentine needs from Poppy, a necromancer, to help his family discover the true alpha of the werewolf pack. Instantly attracted to Poppy ever since she followed him into an alley, Adam feels driven to protect Poppy, even when it causes problems with his brothers. Adam’s safeguarding Poppy before he even realizes that he loves her is an admirable quality in a man. Poppy feels a strong connection to Adam, but love is not a possibility for a necromancer. Also, Poppy believes she is unattractive as she is covered with scars after centuries of alterations with the dead. I couldn’t help but feel for her character having been alone all the years. Adam sees past the scars to the beautiful woman that Poppy is, making him a fantastic leading man. Although their relationship is complicated because a vampire cannot have a blood bond with a necromancer, they are a couple to cheer for as they pledge to be faithful to each other.
I have read the first two novellas in this series, Robert and William, and enjoyed both books very much. Since each story builds on the previous one, I would suggest reading them in order for maximum enjoyment. Engaging characters and ever-present danger make Adam a riveting read right up to the jaw-dropping revelation at the end.
