Overview

House of Shadows by Morgan Hawke

The Witch & the Vampire...

Rick Holt is a successful architect. Little does anyone one suspect, he learned his talents at the actual Bauhaus school of design in Germany, before it was closed in 1943 by the Nazi's. He's a vampire.

Rowan Broom is plying her trade as fortune-teller in her corner of the Goth club when she discovers that the darkly handsome guy watching her from the bar possesses a literal heart of darkness. If that wasn't trouble enough, Rowan learns through her tarot that the entire club is in grave danger.

Evil, in the form of a demonically possessed sorcerer has walked into the club and targeted the vampire as his victim of choice. The sorcerer intends to drain the vampire -- and use that power to kill everyone in the bar.

Suddenly Rowan is embroiled in the bizarre task of rescuing a vampire. However, Rowan is not merely a fortune-teller. She is an experienced and potent witch whose source of power is sex - in its rawest and basest form.

With the Goth bar in flames behind them, Witch meets Vampire face to face to discover that they have absolutely nothing in common - but unearthly desire.

And this is only the Beginning...

Listen up Vamp and Paranormal fans! There is a ¿new kid¿ on the block and she is someone you won¿t want to miss. Morgan Hawke¿s House of Shadows ¿ Enchantment in Crimson ¿ Book 1 is out from eXtasy books. And it¿s one smart, sassy tale that makes this reader wonder WHY she has not been signed by mainstream publishers? I read a novella called ¿Roarke¿s Prisoner¿ by a then unknown writer by name of Angela Knight. I could not believe she was not in mainstream print. Since then, the paperback world wised up and we¿ve been treated to three Knight novels this year and eagerly awaiting her next works. Morgan Hawke will be the next ¿Angela Knight¿. Her writing is fast paces, from word one drawing you into her world of vampires and witches, and you won¿t be able to put it down. This is one of the best vampire-witch books I have read in ages, making me hungry for Book 2 in this series. Rowan Broom is a librarian in a small town, and in order to make ends meets, she plies her other trade in the evenings and weekends ¿ being a witch. At a local Goth bar, she reads the Tarot. From the instant omens begins warning her, she knew ¿something wicked this way comes¿ was heading her way, but she was totally unprepared for Rick the Vampire! As she entered the club Gothic Noire, she instantly became aware of the too beautiful man, and the power rippling off him, sensing his ¿siren¿s¿ call. Being a powerful witch, she was able to ward herself against his potent lure. However, she watches in horror as a greater evil enters the bar and proceeds to attempt a possession of the vampire. The sorcerer, himself possessed by a demon, must feed his demon, so he attempts to gain control of the vampire to work his blood lust. As she sees the sorcerer gaining control of the vampire, she must step in to save everyone in the club. She frees the vampire and lets him battle the demon and the sorcerer. Only, the vampire is not so easily dismissed after that. He comes after Rowan and in an uneasy truce Rowan and Rick, exchange emails. It surprises Rowan a short time later to get a request from Rick. He needs her magic again. A very ancient vampire has come to roost in his lair and won¿t go away. Rick fears the old Drac wants to make a meal of the young vamp. He must have Rowan free him once again. I won¿t spoil all the great surprises in this book. Morgan¿s writing is sassy, saucy and loaded with brilliant wit, marking her as a writer in the Paranormal genre to watch. Discover her now and you go have the pleasure of turning all your vamp/paranormal friends onto this ¿super new writer¿.

The heroine has an annoying habit of talking to herself, a poor tool for moving the plot. The author calls her "The Witch" which is awkward and annoying. The writing style is overly descriptive without being poetic, creative or relevant. Basically, the writing style is amateurish, which made my attempts to read this, pretty painful.
