Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
Ashwood's fourth Dark Forgotten paranormal (after Unchained) is fast paced and captivating. Talia Rostova is a vampire on the run from her powerful, deranged creator, living under the radar in fictional Fairview. When her cousin and roommate is murdered, she knows she was the intended target, while the authorities suspect her of the killing. Lore, the local hellhound Alpha and keeper of the peace, apprehends and hides Talia to determine her innocence. Fighting a mutual, forbidden cross-species attraction, they join forces to stop the killer. While Talia deals with her family wanting to kill her, Lore struggles to maintain control of his pack and protect the city. Their chemistry is immediate and undeniable, and the love scenes are scorching hot. With solid world building and fully realized supporting characters, this strong offering works equally well as a stand-alone or part of a series. (June)

    Highly Recommended!

    Review brought to you by OBS staff member Heidi

    This series just keeps getting better!! I thought the third book, Unchained, was the best of the series until I read this one!! This book truly kept my interest, which is something that I struggled with while reading the first two installments, Ravenous and Scorched.

    I loved Talia. She's a tough little vampire who beat all odds to get away from some very powerful people. First her family of hunters and then King Belenos. She's feisty and can definitely take care of herself. Not to mention she does it all while looking great. I loved when she told Belenos she spent all his money on shoes! Speaking of, whoever designed the cover of this book gave her a killer pair of heels along with a sexy little black dress. It fits right in with the books description of sassy dresser, Talia.

    It was also great getting to know Lore, as you never got to know much about him in the other books except that he can't lie (where can I find a man with THAT problem?). He's a very take-charge kind of guy, but has a huge heart for his pack and the ones he loves.

    These two make a very hot and sexy couple and the scenes with them together just left me waiting for more. Not because they were lacking, but just because they were so steamy and exhilarating and I didn't want the feeling to end.

    The only part of the book I didn't really like was when they were trying to save the queen and they had all the fighting going on underground. It just got a wee bit boring for me, but that's because fighting and stealth just really aren't my thing. After that was over and done with though, the book picked right back up for me.

    Frostbound is a wonderful mix of mystery, action, and romance that any lover of the paranormal is sure to enjoy.

    I can't wait to see what else Ashwood has in store for us..I'm really hoping a Perry and Errata book is in the works (hint hint). Or maybe a book for Joe..the possibilities are endless.

    I Also Recommend:

    Ravenous Frosty Vampire Meets Sizzling Hellhound

    I strongly recommend you read the previous books in the series (Ravenous, Scorched and Unchained) prior to reading this installment.

    Wow what an awesome installment! The story was fresh and exciting. There was a bit less romance and more focus on the story in this installment which was nice. I also liked the fact that the author didn't fill the pages with useless and endless sex scenes but actually gave us a brilliantly clever story with plenty of off-the-wall humor. At times this book was so twistedly-funny I really laughed-out-loud.

    Usually when I begin a novel, I have a hard time getting into it. This book hooked me from the very beginning and I was so immersed in the story, I completely devoured it. On occasion when I was forced to put this book down, I counted down the time until I could pick it back up again.

    How ironic that the series is named Dark Forgotten series..especially since that's what it is according to Penguin Group publishers. I contacted the author and asked what the next book in the series would be and unfortunately she says none. The series is in limbo at the moment and only an immediate increase in book sales will determine its fate.

    It would be a crime to lose a creative series such as this. Each book with supernatural diversity but written in the same universe and can be read as a standalone or in succession.

    For those wondering what genre this series falls into, I would categorize it as a romantic dark urban fantasy, similar to Jeaniene Frost's Night Huntress series.

    I highly recommend this book to fellow dark urban fantasy readers and also hope that there will be a book 5.

    a terrific tale of forbidden love as vamps and weres do not mix

    Fairview vampire sheriff Caravelli is on vacation; before leaving for his respite he hired Lore to patrol the streets insuring the vamps keep their fangs inside and the weres likewise with their claws. His hope for a quiet few days ends when he deals with a drunken hostile vampire.

    Vampire Talia Rostova hides in plain sight in Fariview as she fears her lunatic sire King Belenos will find her. Talia lives in the condo of her human cousin Michelle who works as a hostess on the Queen Anne cruises. When someone murders Michelle, Talia feels remorse because she believes she brought death to her kind cousin; she knows Belenos and his and her family have found her. Lore investigates and captures Talia. He believes she is innocent and accepts her assertion that she was the intended victim though he fears the beast inside him may be clouding his judgment with Ravenous desire.

    The latest Dark Forgotten urban fantasy (see Scorched and Unchained) is a terrific tale of forbidden love as vamps and weres do not mix. Talia's family wants her dead even before she and the temporary sheriff heat the sheets. Lore may be the Alpha but his pack objects to his trysting with the enemy. The town and its residents add a powerful backdrop to a double dog dare fabulous romantic paranormal police procedural.
